We love our Solo Stove! It's been perfect for the summer and fall evenings to sit outside, soak in the fresh air and relax! The girls love to roast marshmallows and make s'mores! The best part, the smoke doesn't get in your eyes!
We ended up getting a Solo Stove and are happy with it! After having it for a week, we purchased the add-on weatherproof cover, as we realized it wasn't something we wanted to be moving in/out of the garage, much easier to just leave it covered up on the patio.
When done right, hardly any smoke. It doesn't come with a fire poker, but you'll definitely need one. My friends and I really enjoyed this during my burn birthday party. We wrote down things we wanted to let go of and watched them shrivel away to ashes. Don't put anything else but wood and paper in it. Fire starters help. Easy to clean and transport, try not to get it wet. Very warm to gather around.
