Will the NEW Solo Stove Heat Deflector Make Fire Pits Better?

This week, Adrian gives the Solo Stove Heat Deflector a full REVIEW and should tell you everything you need to know before you buy!


If you have a Solo Stove and have noticed that it seems you have to get really close to the fire to stay warm, you are not alone! Solo Stove may have solved your problem with this NEW product!!

We've built several fires in the Solo Stove Bonfire and have tested the temperatures with and without the heat deflector on top. We even used a digital infrared thermometer to measure the temperature close to the fire and to see if the deflector would live up to it's name.

Does it actually deflect the heat out to where you would likely be sitting?

Don't worry, we know what you're thinking. Couldn't I just use a pizza baking sheet/dish and build my own? Or should I buy one from Solo Stove? We even tackle that tough question in the Solo Stove Bonfire Review video as well!

If we haven't answered all your questions about the Solo Stove Bonfire Heat Deflector, please send us an email or simply ask in the video comments section. We will be happy to try our best at answering. Also, if you have a heat deflector please leave a comment and let us know what you think!

Pros & Cons

  • Easy to assemble
  • Easy to install
  • Helps disperse heat to those around the fire
  • Made of durable material
  • Now comes with longer legs
  • Initially didn't have taller legs to allow for placing more wood in fire
  • No really easy storage solution when not in use


Should I Buy This Thing?

If you're looking for more heat when sitting around your Solo Stove, this may be exactly what you're looking for. We initially made a home made version of this and it seemed to work well, but the actual Solo Stove brand heat deflector definitely works better and is more stable. If you like your Solo Stove, this will help you like it even more!
