Product Usage & Care

Will my Solo Stove fire pit be hot when in use?

YES! Do not touch any part of the fire pit when in use. It will be extremely hot. Children should always be under parental supervision when around the fire pit. Use common sense and treat your fire pit like any other fire.

Can I use a Solo Stove fire pit on my deck?

Our fire pits are designed to create a mesmerizing fire. That means the outside of our fire pits will be very hot while they are in use. If you are burning on heat-sensitive surfaces such as wood or composite decking, we recommend using Stand with our fire pits to protect the surfaces below. For more information check out our blog on when to use Stand.

Can I cook over a Solo Stove fire pit?

Our fire pits are designed to be used primarily as a backyard or portable fire feature. That said, feel free to enjoy roasting the perfect hot dogs or marshmallows!

What kinds of firewood do you recommend?

Any firewood logs will work, but we recommend using dry hardwoods in our fire pits to enjoy the best flame. Hardwoods, such as birch, maple, hickory, and oak, will burn longer and cleaner than softwoods.

Can I store a Solo Stove fire pit outside?

Solo Stove fire pits can be stored outside with an appropriate weather cover. Check out Solo Stove Shelter, an outdoor weather cover designed specifically for use with a Solo Stove fire pit. Otherwise, our products should be stored in a cool, dry location. Prolonged exposure to harsh weather will likely increase rust and discoloration.

How do I clean a Solo Stove fire pit or camp stove?

After the fire pit is cool, turn it upside down to empty any remaining ash. You can also use a shop vacuum. If you want to clean the outside of the fire pit, use a dry cloth and a non-abrasive cleanser such as Bar Keepers Friend.

Can I use wood pellets in a Solo Stove fire pit?

We do not suggest using wood pellets in a Solo Stove fire pit because they can fall through the bottom grate and get stuck inside. If the wood pellets get wet or come in contact with moisture, they can swell and cause damage to the unit.

When will my order ship?

You will receive an email confirmation that includes a tracking number for your order. For items not on backorder, orders usually ship 1 business day after they are placed. If you have specific questions regarding your purchase, such as credit card information, personal info changes, etc., complete the 'Contact Us' form located in the navigation menu. 

Can I use a Solo Stove fire pit in an existing stone fire pit?

Definitely! However, we recommend leaving 4 to 6 inches around the unit free for proper ventilation.

Will you honor the price I saw on another site?

We do not offer price matching, order credits, or refunds for products ordered from any retailers other than, including market places such as Amazon and Solo Stove dealers' physical locations.

What People Are Saying

Dave Cohoe
Solo Stove is the simple solution I was looking for. No consumables to buy or carry. Easy to use and suitable for the backyard, the trail, and emergencies.
Emanuel Held
The secondary burn makes it efficient and clean AND you can use every fuel you find to fire it!
The Boars
In addition to being resilient and durable, it can boil water in ten minutes, by simply feeding it twigs.
Magnus Broden
The biggest advantage of Solo Stove is that you do not have to bring any fuel.
