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.

Is it o.k. to sit in your backyard in the morning with your Solo Stove and make a fire to boil up some water for coffee? My neighbors must think Im a weirdo. I will not ever buy another backpack stove again after using this awesome piece of equipment. I never leave my cave without it. Thanks Solo Stove. Your #1 Fan, Klondike Mike

This is an awesome little camp stove. Easy to use and light enough to put in a backpack.

Great stove! I just got a chance to use the stove I ordered. This thing is awesome. Took my son out and made some hot chocolate, beans and fried up some hot dogs. Simple but it was TONS of fun. Making the fire was all part of the fun. So glad i ordered this.

If you're going to be backpacking for about 5 days or more, the extra weight of this stove will worth carrying, compared to an alcohol stove, since you won't have to carry fuel. I start mine easily using a small wad of dryer lint and a fire steel. I'm continually amazed at what small pieces of biomass (sticks no larger than my little finger) it takes to cook a meal. I boiled a liter of 57-degree F water in less than 10 minutes the second time I used it. The stove is very well engineered. I also bought the pot because it is designed specifically for the stove.

Gave the stove a serious field test over a week, and it worked great! I was impressed by its simplicity, and strength. After cooking an entire meal for two, with very little smoke, there was very little fine ash left, which was easily disposed of. The weight was no issue, since we did not have to pack any fuel. Great product, would recommend to any camper or backpacker.

It's a compact bomb. It will boil water or cook your eggs in a couple of minutes using twigs and stems found under the trees. Light weight, and I do not need to carry fuel. Easy to use, even for an old veteran like myself.

I purchased the SOLO Stove last year and it's become my favorite piece of kit. It goes with me on every outdoor adventure. I always carry an alcohol burner inside the SOLO Stove as a backup just in case of extreme wet conditions. The stove is compact, lightweight, and does exactly what it was designed to do. Thanks for a fantastic product!

This is a wonderful peace of kit. 55 years ago when I was a boy scout we made these things out of paint cans but the quality and material in this product makes it second to none. My old hobo stove traveled to England and Australia to scout jamborees and I used them the rest of my time in scouting and all through my time as a leader. I wish we had ones of this quality that would have lasted us.

I wanted a light-weight, use-anywhere cooking device that was easy to use. I found it in the Solo Stove. I like that the fuel is all around and can be found...not carried...wherever I go. The Solo Stove heats water fast and since most of my food is just add water, the Solo Stove is just what I needed.

Honestly, I like to use meths burners for my hiking in part and and got the solo as my back up for extended hikes and camping. I loved how well it integrated with my meths setup and is well made. Cudos on the pot stand, it was super stable. The solo stove with my 1.5l fluxring pot and homemade ridge stove gave me boil times of around 3minutes, at 32degrees F with a light breeze. That is blazing fast for alchol.... In wood gas mode i was hardly surprised how well it worked. This gives me the confidence to know that i can boil water to cook or keep myself hydrated for camping, hunting , or natural disasters. I'm getting the solo alcohol stove for it's ability to simmer with the wind screen as my next purchase.
