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. For a visual diagram of the airflow inside the Solo Stove, click here.
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.

In Texas there are so many days of the year where burning is off limits or just plain dangerous. The Solo stove fits my gear to perfection filling both the need and requirement for contained and controlled fire to cook or heat with. Training and preparing to go to survival school I spend a lot of time with this stove in hard environments. Get one and you will never be without means. I love it!

I love this thing - it's awesome.
I had it out for its maiden voyage and was thoroughly impressed with its performance. This thing is the real deal and I'll give my two cents over the long haul as I get better with it at www.letsgohikeit.com.
I have a trip coming up on 1/2/15 and can't wait to put it to the test!

Got two of these, one for kids who work in the deep woods and have to haul camping gear. Boils water and cooks small meals with a few handfuls of twigs. Saves several pounds over their old butane stove and fuel. Makes little smoke and usually no embers that could start fires. Mine is more for emergency use in the event of natural disaster (I live in a tsunami zone). My propane would only last a few weeks but there's an unlimited supply of fuel for this stove to burn for disinfecting water and cooking small meals. If I was still camping full time for work I'd get the new bigger stove as it would handle large frying pans and kettles--the small unit is meant for use with smaller pots.

As a lifelong Boy Scouter and adult leader in scouting, I find the Solo stove an excellent tool in training youth about low and no impact camping. To be able to use what is around you for fuel and not have to cut anything down to do so is big in achieving the goal of leave no trace when camping. Light weight, carrying no fuel, fast heating and easy clean, up how can it get any better. This stove burns so clean there is little to no ashes to get rid of. I would encourage any scout to look into this as a preferred cooking source for back packing. With the nested cooking pots your foot print is no larger than the Pot. I enjoy this system so much that I have purchased a system for each of my 4 adult sons as well as my son-in-law for them to use in their scouting/camping adventures. I have just purchased the Campfire version to try out for the family.

This is a compact, lightweight and very durable stove. I already had the solo alcohol burner, which works great and boils water in about 8 minutes at my altitude. The design channels the airflow and the burner or any fuels for that matter starts fast and burns hot. I have also used wood as fuel, easy starting with the right fuels starting small and working up to large pieces of wood. I really like the compact design, multifuel option all in a snazzy carry bag. I give it five stars.

While the Solo Stove is awesome, it is definitely for personal use. The Titan and campfire seem to be better for preparing food or water for several people. It is easy to use, boils water fairly quickly, and is really only limited by the user's ability to start and maintain a fire. I recommend for solo use.

I'm very impressed with this unit. Great for use when back packing or on the road biking

This is a super simple solution to the problem of lightweight backpacking stoves. No messy flammable fuels to pack!

I have one I bought a few years ago, and bought more to give to my children. When I tested this, I tested it against some other varieties of wood burning backpacking stoves. This gave off the least smoke, and contained the flame well. Some of them the flames were shooting out everywhere. The wood burned to minimal ash. It really does use the small pieces of wood well. I would highly recommend it. My next purchase will be the Campfire version. We have a big family!

The product is exactly as described and very high quality. I did not test it yet but it's clear from web site and videos that the product will work as described. I was looking for a small effective wood fuel stove that is ultralight and easy to pack. It was smaller than expected but this is a desirable issue. Very happy with my purchase. Fit and finish are tip notch and bag are very high end.
