How Does it Work?
Designed with a double wall, the Solo Stove has unique airflow properties which makes it extremely efficient. 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.

Today, I was finally able to get it out and play with it. I collected a huge pile of small sticks and got the fire started amazingly easy. It probably helps that we're in a drought. After a minute or two, the inner air holes looked like jets of flame and I could tell that the stove was well-designed. I let the stoke build up a nice amount of coals (maybe 3 minutes?), then put the top ring in place. This is a good time to remind you to save a nice, small stick to use as a fire poker. The cut-out hole in the side is a fine size to add more twigs to keep things burning.
I wasn't going to waste the fire, so I percolated some coffee (GSI percolator, 3 cup size) and it was ready faster than the stovetop trials I had previously done. It really took a surprisingly small amount of wood to get started and maintain the fire. Now, I have a big pile of twigs for my next 3-4 runs for the stove.
In all, good price for an easy, well-engineered wood-burning stove. This will be in my hiking kit for years to come!
It is small but very light weight. It fits (in its stuff sack) inside a GSI Pinnacle Soloist cookset. I can nest my Trangia alcohol stove in there too (as a backup) I like the GSI cookset for this kit for its locking handle which holds the lid closed making a very nice kit. I only wish the Snow Peak 450 double wall mug nested in there too. then we would have perfection (listening product development?)
We like this unit so much, I'm thinking of getting the "camp fire" version for car camping and at the beach.
First impression is good. The stove is simple and well constructed with top materials. I tried out the stove in the yard, heating up a large pot of soup using a variety of different local woods. From dry seasoned sticks to wet and even green tree branches, the stove seemed to happily burn it all. Of course it smoked less and put out more heat with the drier woods. We took the stove on a picnic lunch with friends and used it to heat water for tea. The weather had been very rainy and cold, and all the available wood was soaking wet. The stove still started easily with only a small cotton ball and Vaseline starter and was able to boil water before we could even get a regular camp fire going. It took a lot more careful tending to keep the stove working with that wet wood, but it still got the job done.
The stove and a good supply of fire starters together were MUCH lighter and more compact than my high-end fuel stove and associated fuel bottle.
The one problem I noticed was that the relatively small base makes this a pretty tippy platform for cooking on, and it's important to find a solid and flat place to set it up.
Overall I am totally sold on this stove for solo trips. I believe for tandem or group camping I will take the larger Solostove Titan.
- Vertical design and small footprint means you have to find a flat, stable surface and be careful not to knock the pot over when feeding fuel
- Needs regular attention, as it will burn out quickly if not being regularly fed
- Can't comment (yet) on longevity or use in high winds. Like most small stoves it likely needs a wind break.
