Call it what it is
a partial knock-off of the original Solo Stove. That being said, I've seen both the Solo Stove and this one in action. They're nearly identical, once fully assembled. The idea is the same and the design is identical. This stove DOES have the added ability to break down a little and be more portable. Which, if you're getting this for a camper or travel, is quite a big deal because it will fit in storage areas once broken down. Setting back up takes seconds. It is NEAR smokeless but not completely. The initial starting of the fire will create smoke. The pit needs a convection current of heat, to pull the smoke out, so when it's cold and just starting out, that isn't going to happen and shouldn't be expected. If you stack wood about the rim, it will smoke. The wood and flame needs to be below the rim for the convection to work properly. The pit can't collect smoke that is emanating from what is technically outside the pit (above it). Because of the current, it has constant air flow. Constant air flow means more constant O2 and a crazy hot fire. For a small to moderately sized pit this thing EATS wood. If you're just doing a 2-3 hour burn in the back yard on a cool night, and you get the little bundles from the grocery store or Home Depot, plan on having like 4 or 5 bundles on hand. The fire gets insanely hot evaporates wood like Thanos snapping his fingers. Because it small, it also won't accept large logs (especially if you want it to remain smokeless). The small bundles are fine, but if you're buying fresh cut, it needs to be chopped down pretty good. The outside, as a result, gets very hot as well. Touch your shoes or boots to the outside and you're melting the soles. Pass out with with a drink in your hand and your foot up on the side, you'll be lucky to have the soles of your FEET left. Dogs will only get near it once....they learn quick. Overall, I really like this one. Take care of it, keep it of the rain, etc and it should last a long time.
Who would like a nice fire
Great fire pit would love if they had a screen to cover the top sometimes the wood pops and stuff pops out but it’s small nothing to get alarmed about. I do think the screen would help out.
Great fire pit
I'll start with the bad...
1) It is not smokeless, it helps reduce the smoke a bit but it is NOT smokeless
2) I feel with the flames being closed off it doesn't have as much heat output so not as good on colder days as my other fire pit
3) It is a bit bland... but it isn't bad looking Now lets do the good.
1) easy to assemble
2) easy to clean
3) it reduces the smoke a lot
4) things seem to burn decently due to wind not getting in as much
5) the pit doesn't seem to want to fall apart after a few uses
6) easy to bring with you
7) the carry case keeps ashes out of your car Honestly it has a LOT going for it but the $250 price tag (at time of review) is a bit harsh in my opinion. Let it be $150-175ish and it would be a great deal in that price range.
Awesome portable firepit. Easy assembly and storage. Really like how quick and easy it is to set up,break down and store. Heavy-duty storage carrying bag. It will be great for camping and sitting on our porch.
It's a metal collapsible transportable fire bucket
Let's pretend you did your research and understand this is basically as close as possible without too much infringement of the popular name brand bucket stove with a certain "singular" name. And that one has variations and accessories. This unit, if you want to spend a quarter K, works. Up to you if you shop around for size and features. See photos. I'll update if something bad happens to the metal in too soon a time. The interior metal had blackened during firing especially around the upper vents, but that burnt off by the end. All wood is consumed, the aeration this design allows is a very efficient wood-burning process. Almost no smoke, and very warm. It was spinning the ceiling fan in our open top Gazebo. Each vent hole made a cone of swirling hot air that the fire surrounded. Very pretty and nice to watch. 50 felt like 70 in the no-wall Gazebo. You cannot touch any metal while it's firing except the feet. I had it up on 4x4 post pieces for this initial firing. Next time we use it... I will put the feet directly on the faux-boards of the Gazebo, they shouldn't melt. They're some sort of plastic boards from the local hardware chain. I will however put a cardboard circle under the unit to see if that gets hot/starts smoking... I had put my hand under while it was at its hottest and couldn't feel heat... so I think this may even work on tables. But I want another use to see. If things go south I would update. The metal gets nice and hot enough to blue... don't expect the inside to be shiny forever. I will update if the EXTERIOR ever starts to change, though. We are quite pleased and may even take this camping after we fashion a grate in case we can get around burn bans since the state parks won't even let you use firepits ( only enclosed flames like grills) during certain seasons. We feel like camp fires are 2/5 the reason to camp.
Smokeless Outdoor Fire Pit
Feel the warmth even from a distance.
Fast Ignition &
The TURBRO Fireside outdoor fire pit reaches full combustion and gives you a roaring fire in as little as 3 minutes. The unique design concentrates flames for an eye-catching bonfire.
The holes on the bottom increase 150% more air intake to the fire pit in a short time. More air is in contact with the firewood in the chassis to accelerate combustion. Part of the air is output from the upper air outlet holes and carries out the secondary combustion on the upper layer.
Easy to disassemble while the nested design saves space for storage. Use the included waterproof storage bag to protect your fire pit from rain or pack it to take on your next outdoor adventure.
Gather the flame and improve the combustion efficiency.
Air Outlet Holes
The air comes out and carries out the secondary combustion on the upper layer.
Star Firewood Tray
Increases air contact with the fuel source leading to full combustion in less time.
Foldable Elevated Tripod Legs
Keep a safe distance from the ground to prevent overheating when burning.
