Solo Stove debuts new fire pit size, pizza oven, patio heater and more

What you need to cook pizza over a fire pit

Americans love their pizza. They also love gathering around a fire pit to relax and socialize in their own backyard. Solo Stove has combined these two pastime passions with the Pi Fire, a pizza oven attachment that lets you cook pizza directly over your favorite Solo Stove fire pit. The company also recently released over 20 new products, accessories and bundles. Best of all, everything is on sale at celebratory deep discounts, making it a great time to add to your Solo Stove collection.

In this article: Fire Pit Surround, Pi Fire and Bonfire Heat Deflector.

Solo Stove: from humble beginnings to a must-have line of innovative products

Solo Stove started when two brothers wanted to make a better camping stove — specifically, one that was efficient and didn't run on fossil fuel. The result was a cylindrical design that burned wood at extremely high temperatures and didn't really look like anything else out there.

Once the idea was brought to life, it didn't take long to start adding to the line. One camping stove became three, and three fire pits were added to the ever-growing list of products. Now, this trusted company has a wide selection of options. You can purchase camping stoves, fire pits, pizza ovens, patio heaters, accessories, fuel and other items.

What's new at Solo Stove?

The list of what's new at Solo Stove is large. It includes such thoughtful accessories as precut firewood, Neapolitan dough balls for making pizza, a bamboo pizza peel, a heat deflector and new colors. However, the most exciting new releases are the Tower Patio Heater, the Mesa XL, the Pi Fire and the Fire Pit Surround. The last two are so innovative that they're already in the BestReviews Testing Lab for a performance evaluation.
