Frequently Asked Questions

Where should I use the Bonfire?

The Bonfire works great in a backyard or take it with you to your car camping site.

How do I cook on the Bonfire?

The Bonfire was not designed with cooking as the main objective. The Bonfire is meant to be used as a backyard fire feature. That said, feel free to break out the marshmallows or hot dogs on a stick!

What’s the difference between the Solo Stove Lite, Titan, Campfire, and Bonfire?

The Solo Stove Lite, Titan and Campfire are more portable backpacking and camping stoves meant for cooking. The Bonfire is the most amazing backyard fire pit and was not designed to be as portable as our other smaller stoves.

What wood types do you recommend using as fuel?

Any firewood logs will burn but for optimum efficiency, we recommend dry hard woods. Hardwoods such as birch, maple, hickory and oak will burn longer than softwoods.

How many logs should I use?

We recommend using 4-6 average size logs. Don’t overfill your Bonfire. Once you have a hot bed of embers, you can always throw on another log or two.

How do I clean and store my Bonfire?

After your Bonfire is cool, turn it upside down to empty any remaining ashes left in your stove. Keep your Bonfire in a cool and dry place when not in use. It’s that easy!

Will my Bonfire be hot when in use?

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