From the fresh pines of northern Minnesota comes OneLogFire, a handcrafted log that’s as easy to light as it is beautiful to gather around and enjoy. Nobody knows for sure exactly when fire was first discovered. Needless to say, it was a long time ago. So it’s surprising that in today’s day and age, starting a fire can still be quite tricky. That’s why the Bies family created OneLogFire—a transportable, quick-light log that provides a self-contained fire for backyard barbeques, camping trips, and other outdoor activities. Felled from local, renewable forests, each handcrafted, kiln-dried log is made in Minnesota and built to burn for two hours. Unlike other wood-burning fires, OneLogFire stands vertically and pulls in oxygen to burn from the inside out. A firestarter on the side makes it simple to light. Once lit, two hours of warmth and ambience are yours to enjoy, worry-free from passing breezes and mess-free compared to traditional campfires. Made of non-toxic materials, OneLogFire burns clean and hot enough for roasting marshmallows and other light cooking. The inspiration for this unique design dates back to the days of the Vikings. Kudos to this family-run business for looking to the past for a creative solution to an age-old problem.

    In the summer of 2009 OneLogFire began with an idea to create a unique and magical way to enjoy a fire.

    The process of burning wood vertically has a long history and was already in widespread use during the 17th century, most likely even much earlier. The OneLogFire was conceived and based upon this fundamental idea. During the years following 2009 much time and effort was devoted to perfecting this product.

    Each OneLogFire log is kiln-dried to ensure proper starting & burning and comes from the renewable and sustainable forests of northern Minnesota.

    We sincerely hope that you enjoy the ambiance and magic created when watching a OneLogFire burn.

  • Aaron
    Aaron
    7/1/2013 2:45 PM

    @Guest Like any fire, there is always the risk of a spark and the potential of fire spreading. Due to the vertical nature of the flame, and because the log burns from the inside out, the fire is more contained compared to traditional log fires, however.

  • Ben

    7/1/2013 2:13 PM

    Is the entire log consumed in those two hours or does it act as a vessel containing the fire with only the center burning?

    Also, can they be burned indoors or would that need to be in a fireplace? (Our power goes out easily and a two-hour "heater and light" would sure be handy!

  • Aaron
    Aaron
    7/1/2013 2:43 PM

    @Ben Hi Ben, the entire log is consumed after about two hours. The log burns from the inside out, so it takes about two hours for the log to burn all the way through.

    It is not recommended for use indoors given general fire hazards. However, if you were to use it inside, it'd be strongly advised to set it up in a fireplace. William recommends using it outside on a safe, fireproof base.

    I really like your product and would love to buy a 2 pak as a gift. Do you have any retail outlets in the Los Angeles area? The shipping charges really don't make it feasible to buy on line.

    @Isabel Hi Isabel, we understand that shipping may be a bit prohibitive; it is a heavier item which is why the cost to ship is higher.

    OneLogFire is a younger company, but growing, though unfortunately that means they are only available at a select few retailers at the moment.

    I believe these are based on what I was thought to make,called a "Swedish Stove"?

    One would split a log into 1/4's add tinder into the center ,then tie the bunch together and spark it up.The fire would evolve slowly,working it's way from the inside out and enabling one to set a pot over the top of it to cook on.

    Great idea for an impromptu,quickie, campfire,without the hassle.

    As for our friend Ben who asks if this can be burned indoors outside a fireplace,I have to ask "Really?"

    Great idea William!
