Want to know how the Solo Stove is able to be so efficient with just a few sticks? Get ready for some science! The air intake holes on the bottom of the Solo stove channels 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. Which allows the fire to burn more complete with very little smoke during full burn. Because the Solo Stove is so efficient at burning biofuel, it means you'll use a lot less compared to cooking with an open camp fire.
The Solo Wood Burning Stove is made from high grade stainless steel and comes in just two parts, the stove itself and the cooking ring. A break in this steel ring allows you to keep fueling the fire after you've placed a pot on top of it. When cooking is done and the stove has cooled, you can flip the cooking ring upside down to nest it within the Solo stove. The Solo Stove is compact enough that it can nest inside most backpacking pots, allowing you not only to save weight compared to other stoves, but precious pack space as well. For backpacking, camping or emergency situations, shed the weight and forget the fuel with the Solo Stove Backpacking Stove.
