A smokeless, portable fire pit sounds like a bit of an oxymoron, but with Solo Stove it’s actually reality. From fire pits to pizza ovens, the brand specializes in devices that can help keep your outdoor spaces feeling nice and cozy, especially once the leaves start changing colors. But when it comes to fire pits, Solo Stove really excels, because unlike most other models on the market, these fire pits won't blow literal smoke in your face or leave your clothes smelling like ashes after you've put out the flames.

Now for a limited time, you can get up to 45 percent off fire pit bundles during the brand’s fall savings event. The Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0, one of the most popular models on the site, originally retails for $400, but it's on sale for $240, so you'll save $160. If you grab the Bonfire Essential bundle ($340)—which includes the fire pit along with a stand, lid, removable ash plate and base plate, and carrying case—you can save $230.

This particular stainless steel model, which has a 5-star rating on the site, uses Solo Stove’s unique 360° airflow design to create a clean, efficient burn. It comes with an ash pan (even if you don’t grab the bundle deal), which acts as a heat shield and reduces heat transfer from the Bonfire to the ground. More importantly, it catches loose ash and prevents it from clogging airflow.

Reviewers have raved about the Bonfire, calling it durable, easy to clean, and simple to use. “We love this fire pit,” one customer wrote. “Burns so efficiently and really kicks some good heat out. We got it in perfect timing for the weather change.” Another noted that the unit is “[very] easily maneuvered if you want to take it camping or to a friends house in a rural area for [a] s'mores night out,” and referred to it as “[truly a] one-of-a-kind outdoor amenity.”

If you're looking for something that won’t take up a ton of room, the brand’s all-new Mesa tabletop fire pit could be an excellent option. Originally $120, this model is marked down to $85 during this fall savings event, so you’ll save $35. Available in six colors (including deep olive and bone), it features the same stainless steel construction and great 360° airflow technology as Solo Stove’s larger fire pits, but it measures in at 6.8-inches tall by 5.1-inches wide, so it’s more compact. Another thing that sets it apart from other units is that it comes with a pellet adapter, meaning you can fuel it via pellets or traditional hardwood.

With the other Solo Stove fire pits, you can use dry woods to fuel the fire—the brand recommends oak or maple for a longer burn with less soot buildup. In addition to fire pits, the brand has all the accessories you need for the ultimate bonfire experience, including fire starters (on sale for $12), handles ($30), roasting sticks ($70), and more. The company also offers free returns within 30 days and a lifetime warranty on products, so you’ll have plenty of time to give items a test run. Shop and save on your very own Solo Stove now.
