The BioLite FirePit is now available to purchase

BioLite FirePit | $200

BioLite FirePit | $200

BioLite, the company behind one of my favorite wood stoves, successfully funded another Kickstarter project last year, the FirePit.

Built on the same technology as its existing camp stoves, the FirePit can burn either wood or charcoal and has 51 air jets to inject the fire with oxygen. This not only makes the temperature throughout the burn chamber more uniform, it helps reduce smoke. It has a built-in 10,400 mAh battery that will last up to 24 hours and can be recharged via USB or a solar cover that is sold separately ($60).

Like the CampStove line, the FirePit can be used to cook with. It comes with a grill grate so you can cook with your cast iron skillet or directly over the fire.

If the FirePit is anything like the stoves that came before it, it's not only functional but a hell of a lot of fun to use. You can now grab the FirePit directly from the BioLite website or from REI for $199.95 plus shipping. However, you can opt to pick up in store from your local REI for no charge.
