Founded in 2006, startup BioLite has made a stellar name for itself by way of outdoor cooking gear and off-grid energy products. Now they’re back with the BioLite FirePit, a revolutionary camping appliance that delivers a front row seat to the fire while drastically reducing the smoke. The wood-and-charcoal burning device is already $1.2 million over its initial funding goal on Kickstarter, and therefore a smashing success. Consider us unsurprised. After all, who would argue with a smoke-less wood fire?
Accordingly, the BioLite FirePit emanates with optimisation. That starts with the fire itself, which is sustained and controlled by 51 expertly placed oxygen-injecting airjets that run at 4 different speeds. This sophisticated system improves combustion, balances the temperature and significantly reduces smoke. The result is a warm, crackling, virtually smoke-less campfire that requires less kindling.
BioLite keeps the features coming. The FirePit offers dual-fuel capability courtesy of two layered tiers with charcoal on top and wood underneath. That means you can start by cooking hibachi-style and then segue into a bonfire as night falls. And don’t forget about the X-Ray mesh frame, which offers 360 degree views of the fire from the base up.
Needless to say, the BioLite FirePit highlights everything we love about outdoor cooking while discarding everything we hate about outdoor cooking. Heck, BioLite’s latest highlights everything we love about fire itself. No wonder it’s doing so well.
