The patented (#D701,721) Solo Stove Lite is a unique wood burning stove that incorporates a secondary combustion for a more efficient and cleaner burn. The bottom vents allow air to enter and flow up the bottom of the grate to feed the primary combustion, a top down smolder. In addition, air entering in from the bottom vents heats up within the inner wall and rises up and out the top firebox vents causing a secondary combustion at the top of the stove. The Solo Stove actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once, but twice! This technique makes for a cleaner burn which means less smoke and higher efficiency.
Forget the Fuel: 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.
Gasify your Wood: 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 means less smoke while cooking.
Travel Lighter: The Solo Stove Lite only weighs 9 oz and eliminates the need to carry fuel canisters - a great way to lighten your load. It also nests inside most pots leaving you with more space in your pack.
Stay Green: By using renewable resources for fuel instead of petroleum, you're reducing your carbon footprint. You'll also keep fuel canisters out of the landfill.
Be Prepared: The Solo Stove Lite is great for emergency situations.

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!
There is a trade off between bulk, weight and boil time with lightweight backpacking stoves. This stove is clearly more bulky than several pack flat stoves out there, but boil time and weight are unbeatable.
My preference is for wood as a heat source, living in a heavily wooded region. It takes but a handful of twigs to boil a cup of water for a hot beverage or dehydrated food.
On a prolonged trip I might consider one of the pack flat stoves for reasons of space but if there is room in my pack, this stove is my first choice.
It feels light, but sturdy. It's also exciting to watch once the secondary burn starts and the little jets of flame start shooting from the holes at the top.
The coolest part is that it burns everything down to fine white ash. It also cools down after cooking rather quickly, so you can put it away and get back to your hike without a lot of waiting around.
I wish it had included some written instructions, but that's my only gripe.
This item performs so well that I've gave my first stove to my brother and purchased a second stove, which I ended up giving to my dad because he loved the ease of use. I am already well acquainted with the Solo Stove, along with the newest big brother, the Solo Stove Titan! These stoves are built solid and manufactured to last for many years of use. They really can't make this item any easier to use, as it's pretty self explanatory. Almost any person who knows how to build a small fire with tinder and small kindling will immediately pick this thing up and begin using it. As I've raved about for years, the perfect machining of the double wall construction with internal and external vent holes allows this stove to perform with an almost unbelievable complete burn of any wood fuel you feed into it. In other words, it will burn the fuel you put into it quickly with a VERY hot flame! After the stove initially heats up, you will begin to see the "flame jets" kick in inside the rim of the stove. This is simply the secondary burn of the wood fuel that mixes with the cool flow of oxygen that the stove pulls up from the bottom and mixes with the heat and fire to create a hotter burn! This means that there is no charcoal left afterwards, with nothing but ash in the collection pan at the bottom of the stove. Once cooled, you just turn the stove over and empty the ash out. That's it. It really couldn't be more simple, and is a joy to use on camping & hiking trips due to the light weight of the stove itself.
