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.

This weekend's island camping expedition was markedly improved from past ventures by the inclusion of this tough and tiny stove. It boiled countless pots of tea and hot chocolate, and, this morning, allowed me to turn out two perfect quail's-egg omelettes with a mess kit frying pan. It burned reliably when rain prevented us from lighting a larger fire, and was so delightfully easy to gather fuel for (pinecones and fir twigs kept it hot and happy). I'd like to see you make a support for broader pans, as we had to keep a careful hold on the frying pan to keep it from sliding off, and I'd like to see you make a frying pan as well (since your pots are considerably nicer than most reasonably-priced lightweight camp cookware). I foresee this stove accompanying me on many happy future expeditions.

I followed the basic directions and I had a flaming stove with minimal effort. The hardest part was collecting the twigs, nothing hard about that!! It is so light and versatile, it should be a "mainstay" for every camper!!

I tried the 'top down' burn suggested in a blog post. Basically stack the wood in the bottom up to the holes. I then used a small bit of pine firestarter, lit it, dropped it on top and added a couple of small sticks on top of that. It caught quickly and gave a very long, clean burn.
I think what is nice about this method is not just the long burn, but you get a very hot bed of coals so adding a few small larger diameter pieces can get you another big burn quickly if you need to do another pot. Also, even after the flames died away, the residual heat lasts a very long time. I suspect you could use it as a light simmer or a warmer for pretty long. Anyway, hard to beat the amount of heat you can generate on just a small amount of wood, with a super light weight.

The Solo Stove Titan is the most useful practical and very most fun piece of camping gear I've used in many years. You really can't go wrong. It really is engineered and made so well it would seem to last forever. Happy camper here! Ron Wills

Short and sweet; just like the stove. Its compact, lightweight, beautifully put together and form follows function. Comes with a well made stuff sack to keep your pack clean. The all brass alcohol burner fits like a glove and makes a great back up to natural fuels

I'm an avid sportsman and enjoy the outdoors with my family fishing, hiking, hunting and camping. While on my shorter day adventures I like to brew a cup of coffee and have a little bite to eat on the shore or at base camp. This little solo stove and pot are the perfect solution. I don't need to carry fuel and worry how much I have left nor do I have to worry about spilling fuel and harming the ecosystem. Best part is there is ample FREE fuel just about anywhere you look, dry deadfall can be usually found everywhere. The stove is efficient, clean and lightweight and very easy to use. More over, it also gives me pleasure from the process of building a fire and making that cup of coffee; that coffee will taste better than any store bought coffee ever will-- FWIW, try roasting your own beans too! I've backpacked in my younger years and think the solo stove would have been perfect vs my old MSR Whisperlite and fuel bottle though I have yet found the time (or knees) to give it an extended trial. I'm planning on a titan in the future so that I can prepare larger meals for the family while having two stoves running!

While researching wood backpacking stoves, my son and I became enamored with the solo stove. As an owner of another wood backpacking stove I was intrigued. So, I purchased one for my son as a birthday present and we took it out last weekend. It worked just as advertised, boiled the 30 oz that fill the solo pot 900 in 12 minutes, start to finish with just a few leaves and sticks! It is definitely a keeper and it will be used until it crumbles.

I've used it a couple times and it has worked great!
Every ounce counts and this little stove has exceeded my expectations...

works as good as a gas stove and much cheaper :) Buy yours and you will not regret it..

And why you might ask? It's easy to use, lightweight and I was surpriced to see how fast it boils water! With hardly any fuel! I picked some sticks to test my new solostove and I thought, "I will be impressed if it boils using only this handfull of small sticks" well, it almost used half my collected sticks! I used a wooden table where some candles have dropped a bit of wax so I could melt it perhaps. It was still cold after boiling the cup of tea I'm drinking right now! So, it has met every requirement I have. Lightweight, green, easy to use, fast, doesn't have to be treated gently or I have to take care of where I put it before using it. Of course, long grass and stuff can get in so some care to where you use it is needed. BUT! I tried to ignite a stick I dipped in water, it burned almost instantly!! Now that is hot! I just love my solo stove!! If I have to pick between this and my swedish spirit stove (you might know the brand, I just can't talk bad about it) aaaaaaahhhh.. If it was really a matter of choose or I die, I have to chose the solo stove. Those words were the hardest I have ever written!!! I love my swedish spirit stove, used one in the army and now.... I will still keep it and use it but not as often.
