We’ve answered questions about the Ranger fire pit from Solo Stove and today, we’re going to be answering the most frequently asked questions about the Bonfire! Before Bonfire, we used to collect logs, kindle the fire, hope it didn’t flame out, and let it burn for 10 hours. Find out how the Bonfire has changed the game!

How Does the Bonfire Solo Stove Work?

The Bonfire Solo Stove works in the same way as the Ranger. The Ranger is basically the small size version of the Bonfire so you will notice quite a few similarities in the answers to these questions and the answers in the our Ranger Solo Stove FAQ.

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.
