Our stoves cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. It’s easy to light, fast to boil and clean to use.
A unique gasification and secondary combustion process lets our stoves achieve a highly efficient and more complete burn. This means you’ll use fewer twigs to achieve a boil. It also produces less smoke.
The Solo Stove only weighs 9oz and eliminates the need to carry heavy fuel canisters - a great way to lighten your load. It also nests in the Solo Stove Pot 900 leaving you with more space in your pack.
By using renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum, you are reducing your carbon footprint. You’ll also keep fuel canisters out of the landfill.
The Solo Stove isn’t just for backpacking; its great to have on hand when you’re in an emergency or survival situation. You’ll always be able to cook and will never need to worry about running out of fuel.
How it Works
Designed with a double wall, the Solo Stove is a natural convection inverted downgas gasifer stove. The air intake holes on the bottom of the stove channel air to the bottom of the fire while at the same time, channels warm air up between the walls of the stove. This burst of preheated oxygen feeding back into the firebox through the smaller holes at the top of the stove causes a secondary combustion. This allows the fire to burn more complete which is why there is very little smoke during full burn. A more efficient burn also means you'll use much less wood compared to an open camp fire. The Solo Stove doesn't just burn wood. It actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once, but twice!
The Solo Stove also features a heat shield between the ash pan and the bottom of the stove. This heat shield protects the ground under the stove from scorching.
The cooking ring's angled lip also increases efficiency by directing heat towards your pot minimizing heat loss. It also acts as a windshield while still allowing oxygen to flow inward. The Solo Stove is indeed one of the most efficient wood burning stoves you'll ever own.
Built to Last
Your Solo Stove is made by using a one piece construction process. This manufacturing process allows us to use state-of-the-art precision presses to form and shape solid pieces of high grade stainless steel. The outer shell of your Solo Stove is actually one entire piece of stainless steel with no seams or welds. The inner firebox and floating ashpan is also made using one piece construction. This eliminates the need for excessive welding and increases the overall strength and lifespan of your stove. Nichrome wire, which has a high melting point of 2552 degrees Fahrenheit, is used for the grate.

I bought one for my brother the hunter, camper, woodsman to compare to his gas stove. I expected him to return it after testing it. My surprise, I had to buy another for myself after asking for it back. 14 degree days in norther Idaho and it works great.

I must admit I wasn't totally impressed with the Solo Stove when I unpacked it. Compact, lightweight, two parts. I was a little skeptical. Then I gave it the trial by fire, and was really impressed with the ease of lighting, stoking, and abundant heat for cooking. SOLD! (Anyone looking for a used MSR?)

This little stove is amazing! Dry wood and tinder, I find to be the best medicine. A few charcoal blocks for a backup or emergency fuel works wonderful. Very light and durable. Well compacted into the perfect kettle, in which I use for a cooking pot as well. My magnesium flint strike and tinder fits inside the stove and is ready for the next boil up! My gas stove is history!
Thank you for a great "Light & Reliable" product!

Ok, its a great system to cook on, uses natural fuel, built solid etc etc but I haven't seen any else comment on it so I will, it is also a great, safe way to teach kids (or anyone for that matter) about fire. Fuel management, air management, heat etc within a small space. Easy to extinguish, small enough that it can't get out of hand. I started with my son when he was almost 4 on a camp trip to get him involved and now after a couple seasons of trips I don't worry about him near the fire. He respects it and it has been demystified because I let him investigate and interact with it. I still supervise mind you, but I don't have to worry too much.

I purchased the stove first and after seeing other positive reviews of the solo pot 900, I bought that as well. What an excellent combination. The stove is solid and lights fast (with light my fire striker and petroleum cotton balls which store easily with the stove). Great construction and awesome design. The pot doesn't add much weight and is equally as important in my opinion and boils water quickly. Small investment = years of reliability.

Just wanna tell you how much I enjoy your stove; use it all the time camping, backpacking, etc. Show it to lots of boy-scout leaders; lot's end up buying one.
I wanna let you know I have had great fun and success trying different fuels and techniques with the stoves. One of the best I've found that you might not have tried is using one self-lighting charcoal briquette for backup or on particularly wet days. While most users will probably gather and stash dry fuel when available, a self-lighting briquette kept in a ziplock baggie in your pack can make it MUCH easier, even on the wettest days. One briquette weighs almost nothing and if you drop it in the solo stove first you'll find it easy to dry out and ignite damp twigs etc. I keep 2 briquettes In my pack for really wet days, along with a pine cone or 2.

Recently used this stove for 4 days straight while hiking on the AT. I carried a few match light charcoal briquets for back up in case of damp conditions. I used them on a couple of mornings for quick coffee and they work great. One briquet will boil a pot of water. Highly Recommended!

I received this stove on a Monday, on Wednesday my brother and I took it into the Colorado high country on a three day elk hunt. We were camping at about 8500 ft and the solo stove performed flawlessly even with DAMP fuels. On top of cooking, it also kept us warm. I believe this is the best purchase I have made to date for my hunting trips. Thanx for an awesome, lightweight product.

The stove does everything I need by being able to go from biomass to alcohol. I don't like to rely on just one fuel sorce while hiking multiple weeks at a time.

Yes , You can have the best of both worlds when camping. This stove will burn wood for you to cook with and if you are lazy or it is a heavy rain out there and you forgot to get the wood , don't panic while huddling under the tarp or rain fly. Just put the little alcohol burner in where the wood would be and light it and then enjoy a hot meal or a hot drink. You do not need a lot of alcohol with you , a few ounces does the trick as a back up plan for several hot meal's. After all wood will be the official fuel to cook with as you enjoy your camping/backpacking experience. "O" It also works really well for canoe trips.
