Solo Stove (Unboxing & Review)

I just received a new piece of kit on Friday via Amazon called the Solo Stove!

I have been wanting to purchase this item for a long while, but I have waited due to the price tag. My father-in-law sent me a little money for my birthday coming up; so I decided that since the weather has been getting cooler here in Florida, now would be a fantastic time to purchase a wood burning stove! I’ll soon be hiking & camping and simply enjoying the wonderful outdoors here in Central Florida… and for that, I’m VERY excited!!!

This is the Unboxing video that I made showing the product right out of the box and a basic overview showing the elements of this stove and some of my thoughts.



Finally, this is my Cooking & Review video.

Here is my Amazon Associates link where you can find more product details on the Solo Stove, fantastic reviews, and purchasing information. I will soon be adding my own review to Amazon as well.

    I came across your site… I really like it . When I saw this stove video, I couldn’t help but think, “He should try a biolite…” The biolite campstove, although more expensive, is really amazing. You should check it out…

    Keep it up!

      Hi Chad!

      I’m glad you’ve found my website… thanks for taking the time to check out my review!

      When I first received my Solo Stove, I don’t believe the BioLite had come out yet. I did read about it in one of my Popular Science magazines, but I believe that was back before it was officially being produced & sold. With that being said, I received a Goal Zero Nomad 7 (portable solar panel kit) from my Father-in-law a few years ago for Christmas… and then realized that my solar panel proved to be a bit more useful than the BioLite because I could use it on hiking trips, tubing trips (because it’s waterproof), and even just driving down the highway… provided that it’s constant sun and not going back & forth into the shade. I coupled my Nomad 7 with a portable li-ion power pack and now find that it’s one of the most useful power producing items that I own.

      I would still love to try out a BioLite unit somewhere in the future, and would do a review on one in a heartbeat. I just can’t justify spending the money on it right now. My Solo Stove is normally only used during power outages (along with my butane/propane hiking stove) and on hiking/camping trips.

      Thanks again for taking the time to respond to my review!! 🙂
