Cooking for the group? No problem! Campfire is the big daddy of the family and is great for small groups of 4+ people. Designed with a double wall, the Solo Stove Campfire is a natural convection inverted downgas gasifier stove.
Solo Stove says:
The air intake holes on the bottom of the stove channels air to the bottom of the fire while at the same time, channels warm air up between the walls of the stove. This burst of preheated oxygen feeding back into the firebox through the smaller holes at the top of the stove causes a secondary combustion. This allows the fire to burn more complete which is why there is very little smoke during full burn. A more efficient burn also means you'll use much less wood compared to an open camp fire. The Solo Stove Campfire doesn't just burn wood. It actually cooks the smoke out of the wood and then burns the smoke not once, but twice!
The Solo Stove Campfire also features a heat shield between the ash pan and the bottom of the stove. This heat shield protects the ground under the stove from scorching.The cooking ring's angled lip also increases efficiency by directing heat towards your pot minimizing heat loss. It also acts as a windshield while still allowing oxygen to flow inward. The Solo Stove Campfire is indeed one of the most efficient wood burning stoves you'll ever own.
The Solo Stove Campfire is quite an impressive piece of camping kit. It is quite obviously not designed to meet the needs of the ultralight backpacker, due to its size and weight, but that certainly isn’t the point.
The overall dimensions of this beast allows it to play host to all of your fire needs around camp. Just as with the original and Titan the Campfire is a double wall constructed, stainless steel, woodgas stove. The rugged design is well executed, and the quality of construction is easily apparent.
When you look at the stove on Solo Stove's website there is over 150 reviews and nearly all of them having nothing but good things to say. So overall an excellent stove that's easy to get started and offers plenty of focused heat from very little fuel.
