Solo Stove’s Fire Pit 2.0 fixes the original’s biggest flaw

Solo Stove fire pits have been a staple of Engadget buyers’ guides for a while. They burn wood with incredible efficiency and minimal smoke. They are also virtually indestructible and come with a lifetime guarantee. I personally bought a Bonfire model last year and couldn’t be happier. My only complaint (besides the price) is that they are a huge pain to clean. After a few fires you have to pick the whole thing upside down and put it in a garbage bag to get the ash out. And I’m sure it’s a lot worse for anyone who’s settled on Solo Stove’s largest model – the 40-pound Yukon.

The Fire Pit 2.0 range solves this massive problem by introducing a removable base plate and ash pan. After the pit has cooled, simply reach in, lift the base plate, then remove the ash pan and dump it out. I have tested the new Bonfire 2.0 side by side with my OG model and confirm that this is a gigantic Improvement. Some ash will inevitably find its way into the space under the ash pan – it doesn’t quite reach the edges of the corner it’s embedded in. But it’s easy enough to suck that little bit out with a vacuum or something.

Most importantly, Solo Stove hasn’t changed anything about its 360° Signature Airflow Technology. I had some slight concerns that changes to the bottom of the pit would affect airflow and result in less efficient combustion, but that’s not the case. I still rarely have a splinter at the end of a fire and smoke is hardly a problem when it’s roaring. All original accessories also work with the new models.

The other thing that hasn’t changed is the price. Solo stoves don’t come cheap, and I’ll admit I was a little skeptical when I decided to afford one last year, but honestly it’s a far better investment than a $99 home depot fire pit that’s only available in It will need to be replaced in a year or two – especially if you’re buying one on sale. Right now, the entire lineup is up to 45 percent cheaper, with the Solo Stove Ranger 2.0 priced at $230, the Bonfire 2.0 priced at $260, and the Yukon priced at $460.
