There are 5 reasons for being a solo stove that makes it stand out from other firepits and make it unique.

1. Advertised as a smokeless fire pit

Solo Stove is built with a unique design that maximizes airflow through its inner walls making the burning process more complete and with little or no smoke.

According to the instructions if you keep the stack of wood inside the fire pit below the upper air vents you should have a very clean burn that is smokeless or low smoke.

2. Clean and safe for camping

The first reason is if you like camping you will know that most campsites are well used and the pre-existing firepits are used almost every night, and the problem is that some people throw anything into those firepits, garbage, etc., so they can be a breathing hazard, and really when you think about it it is disgusting.

The second reason is that the solo stove smokeless fire pit leaves no trace behind after a fire when camping, maybe just a few ounces of ashes that you can scatter anywhere without anyone ever knowing you were there.

The solo stove is also very efficient, when burning 20 lbs of firewood you are only left with around 5 ounces of wood ashes, so that’s great for the environment and your wallet.
