Frequently Asked Questions
- How do I clean the Solo Stove?
Cleaning a Solo Stove is relatively simple and straightforward. First, make sure the stove has cooled completely before starting the process. Remove any debris or ash from the stove using a small brush or a damp cloth. Pay attention to the corners and crevices of the stove, as ash can accumulate in these areas. If you have access to compressed air, it can help to blow out debris stuck in hard-to-reach places.
Wipe down the stove with a damp cloth to remove any remaining soot or dirt. For harder-to-remove stains, use a mild soap solution and a scrub brush. If the stove has been used with a liquid fuel such as alcohol, clean the burner and fuel line. Dry the stove completely before using or storing it.
- How does the Solo Stove work?
The Solo Stove features a double-walled construction and unique air flow system that allow for a more complete burn of the fuel (usually wood) powering it, according to the company: A bottom air vent allows air to flow into the stove and feed the fire, while the top vent allows hot air and gases to escape. This results in less smoke and a hotter, more efficient fire — one that uses less fuel than a traditional campfire.
A stainless steel cooking ring sits above the fire, providing a stable platform to place a pot or pan to cook with.
- How much is a Solo Stove?
The price of a Solo Stove varies by model and retailer. The company offers a variety of models with different sizes and features, such as Solo Stove Lite, Solo Stove Titan, Solo Stove Campfire, and Solo Stove Ranger, and prices range from $65 to $160. Some Solo Stove models are available bundled with companion accessories such as a pot or windscreen that sell for a higher price.
Store prices may also vary based on location, taxes, and shipping costs. You can find some sale promotions or deals periodically on the Solo Stove website or from other retailers that may allow you to buy at a discount.
