The Ranger Fire Pit from Solo Stove is dubbed “The World’s Most Unique Fire Pit” so it is common that customers have questions about it before they buy. That is what this post is for, we’re going to break down some of the most popular questions asked about The Ranger.

How Does the Ranger Fire Pit Work?

1. Airflow

Rising hot air, and the absence of oxygen created by the combustion process, pulls air through the bottom vent holes. This air movement fuels the fire at its base while also providing a boost of preheated air through the vent holes at the top of the burn chamber.

2. Ash Pan

Catches loose ash and prevents it from clogging vital airflow. The ash pan also acts as a heat shield and reduces the heat transfer from your Bonfire to the ground beneath it.

3. Precision Base Plate

Catches loose ash and prevents it from clogging vital airflow. The ash pan also acts as a heat shield and reduces the heat transfer from your Bonfire to the ground beneath it.

4. Secondary Burn

Vent holes near the top of the burn chamber allow preheated oxygen to fuel the flame resulting in a more complete combustion and a hotter fire with less smoke.

5. Fire Ring

The fire ring is formed from a single piece of 304 stainless steel, deep drawn with precision tooling and hand polished. The fire ring is designed to keep the fire centered and even. It sits securely on the top and when turned upside down, nests inside for simple storage.

The Solo Stove Lite, Titan and Campfire are more portable backpacking and camping stoves meant for cooking. The Ranger is the most portable of our backyard fire pits 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 hard woods. Hardwoods such as birch, maple, hickory and oak will burn longer than softwoods.

How Many Logs Should I Use?

We recommend using 4-6 logs up to 12″ long. Don’t overfill your Ranger. Once you have a hot bed 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 Ranger?

After your Ranger is cool, turn it upside down to empty any remaining ashes left in your stove. Keep your Ranger in a cool and dry place when not in use. It’s that easy!

Will My Ranger Be Hot When in Use?

YES! Do not touch any part of the Ranger when in use. It will be extremely hot. Children should always be under parental supervision when around the Ranger. Use common sense and treat the Ranger like any other fire.

Can You Place the Ranger in an Existing Fire Pit?

Yes, however we recommend 2+ inches of clearance around the unit for proper ventilation.
