I purchased one back in December 2017. It arrived damaged in transit with a large dent in the side of the drum. Solo Stove customer service made good and sent me a replacement after I decided not to take their reduced price offer to buy the damaged unit. I opted for a replacement Bonfire. When the replacement arrived I contacted the CSR and requested a RMA # and she said I should just keep it so I now have 2
I've had at least a half dozen fires in the Bonfire and it performs as advertised. It's constructed of 304 SS and is essentially a wood gasification fire pit.
Once up to operating temperature there is very little visible smoke making it beyond the voracious flames licking into the air. In 20*F temperatures it took ~15 minutes, and in mid 70sF it was smokeless in less than 5 minutes. The heat is intense because almost all of the wood smoke is combusted into long curling flames.
- Weight = 20 Lbs.
- Material 304 stainless steel
- 19.5" diameter
- 14" high
- duffel bag included with handles
I'm taking one along and will use it even if there's a fire pit available. Fires are for viewing flames, smoke is for BBQ!
