Solo Stove

Bonfire Steel Fire Pit

High-Tech Fire

Huddle around the perfect fire. This stainless steel bonfire pit is tough enough to last a lifetime.

Besides its timeless single-sheet, minimalist design, Solo Stove stands out for its double chamber build. Air comes in through vent holes at the bottom and rises between the walls to the holes at the top.

This circulating,
preheated oxygen fuels the flame, burning it easily. With less smoke and fewer logs, you can indulge in all your favorite campfire classics (marshmallows, hot dogs, s’mores). Meanwhile, its ash pan catches debris and acts as a shield that prevents scorching the ground below.

Solo Stove was meticulously engineered to be the cozy center piece for your next camping trip or backyard outing. And the best part is it’ll be entertaining and warming friends and family for generations.

    Hello everyone! I am excited and proud to introduce our Solo Stove Bonfire to The Grommet! I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have!

    I have several questions: 1) What are the dimensions 2) I assume the exterior metal gets really hot. How long does it take to cool off after a fire is out? 3) How do you extinguish a fire? Thanks.

    @David I can answer # 3 a fire extinguisher.

    Thanks, Kip. And for portability's sake, we'd recommend Mini Firefighter.

    As for 1 and 2, Solo Stove is 19.5" x 14" and it would depend on how long the fire was burning, but probably around 2 hours.

    @David, great questions! 1) Height is 14 inches, width 19.5 inches. 2) Yes the metal will be extremely hot when in use. Once the fire is completely out your Bonfire will be cool. 3) It's best to allow the Bonfire to burn out on its own. Thanks.

    @Nancy, thanks for your question! The ash pan is easy to empty, just turn the Bonfire over when its completely cool. Due to the Bonfire being super efficient, there is only very little white ash left over! Thanks for your comments!

    Looks great but I fear too small for standard 16-18" firewood length logs.. Is the 19.5 diameter interior or exterior?

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    5/24/2017 10:40 AM

    That is the exterior. And if the logs are stood up in teepee formation, they should work just fine.

    It would help so much if the video also showed how to empty the ash pan as well as how to start a fire in the unit.

    Is the unit easily portable? ...like to the beach?

  • robin
    robin
    5/24/2017 10:30 AM

    @Roy starting a fire is very easy just put a larger peice of wood on the bottom then add some twiggs and small branches and some slightly larger pieces like you would a regular camp fire then start with a lighter and what ever starter you choose. great for the beach just make sure you keep the bottom vent holes clear of the sand for the gasification to work

    Are you contemplating adding a gas canister so the unit can be turned on and off at will?

    @Edward The Bonfire is made for only wood logs so it burns like a traditional outdoor fire.

    I have a solo stove I use for campin and I kickstarted the Bonfire. this is amazing we use it all the time. things I can tell you about this are yes the sides do get hot. but the bottom does not. you get a complete burn and there is some ash. the cool down time is roughly a half hour so by the time we finish cleaning up putting chairs away the bonfire is cool enough to dump over and empty the ash. we find rolling a few times on its side after dumping rids it of 99% of the ash. then its just pop it into its storage bag and put it away till next time.this is a hot fire so it burns quickly to put it out we just stop adding fuel it takes about an hour for the coals to die but during that time they are perfect for marshmallows. the weight is about 20lbs great for car camping the beach and picnics not really some thing for backpacking and hiking but they have other stoves like the titian for this.

    @Mike I have had several fire pits and the Bonfire is by far the best we have found. because it is so easy to clean and store it wont be left to the elements and should last for years. by far the best $$ ever spent. Love the Grommet by far the best place to find new things.

    @Lucinda The Bonfire is best used with wood logs as fuel although I'm sure you could start the fire with paper junk mail. Nice to put it to good use instead of throwing the junk mail away! Thanks.

    Hello! Very interested in the stove...question - on another site I noticed some rusting on the inside of the stove - (1) can you explain this on a stainless steel application? (2) what is the warranty on this item? (3) Thoughts on winter / not in use storage? (meaning do I need to bring it in after each use / seasonally, etc.)? thanks!

  • Eric

    @Dana Hi Dana, thanks for your interest and questions! Stainless steel has an increased resistance to rust, however it is not rust proof. Prolonged exposure to moisture (winter season) may result in increased staining and/or rusting. We recommend emptying the ashes and wiping it with a dry cloth, you can then place your Bonfire in its carrying case and store it in a cool dry location. Due to the extremely high temperatures the inside of the Bonfire may show signs of staining/rust. This is normal and will not affect normal use. Caring for your Bonfire correctly will prolong its look and usability so can enjoy a lifetime of the ultimate backyard fire pit experience! We warranty each and every Solo Stove product to be free of manufacturing defects, and we will repair or replace with a new product, at our option, any Solo Stove product that is deemed defective. Solo Stove does not warrant its products against normal wear or misuse. Thanks.

    @John C Hi John, thanks for your interest and question. Our Bonfire was designed and created to be the most beautiful, ultimate single unit fire pit ever! Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows is perfect just as you would with any other open fire. Thanks.

    really interesting fire pit. I've been looking for something like this but how does it hold up to the weather? most of my fire pits get set in place and stay there. could it be left exposed to the weather or should it be put away after each use?

    @Wayne thanks for your interest and questions! The elements can certainly be harsh on most everything. Stainless steel has an increased resistance to rust, however it is not rust proof. Prolonged exposure to moisture may result in increased staining and/or rusting. For storage, we recommend emptying the ashes and wiping it with a dry cloth, you can then place your Bonfire in its carrying case and store it in a cool dry location. Caring for your Bonfire correctly will prolong its look and usability. Hope this helps, thanks!

    @Wayne we thought about this too but you will be amazed at how easy it is to care for and store. ourfire pit use to sit out but the bon file is so manageable we just pop it in its bag and put it in the mud room our our front closed porch takes about 5 min to get out and its just as quick to store

    @susan we use it on our grass and it doesn't even leave a mark the bottom stay cool though the sides get hot. we do try to pick a different spot each time just so the people traffic doesn't wear the grass.

    I have a question regarding this Fire Pit....Can you put it on a deck or is it strictly to be used on the ground? Will it scorch the deck and is it dangerous on a deck?
