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.
Do I need to purchase any accessories?
No, your fire pit is ready to use with just wood. However, we do offer several accessories to make your experience even better. Check out our accessories here: https://www.solostove.com/fire-pit-accessories.
Does the Bonfire come with a cover?
No. Your Bonfire comes with a black, nylon carrying case. Bonfire Shelter, an all-weather cover, may be purchased separately if you would like to leave your Bonfire outside.
How do I cook on the Bonfire?
The Bonfire was designed to be used as a backyard fire pit, helping you gather friends and family. Feel free to break out the marshmallows and hot dogs or another fire pit friendly food!
What’s the difference between the Solo Stove Lite, Titan and Campfire vs the Bonfire and other fire pits?
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 designed to accommodate larger groups who enjoy sitting around a beautiful, smoke-free flame.
What wood types do you recommend using as fuel?
Any firewood logs will burn but for optimum efficiency, we recommend dry hardwoods. 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 hotbed of embers, you can always throw on more logs. To minimize smoke and optimize your flame, don't fill the wood above the holes at the top of the fire pit.
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.
Can you place the Bonfire in an existing fire pit?
Yes, however, we recommend 2+ inches of clearance around the unit for proper ventilation.
