You are probably familiar with the Tiki brand and their tiki torches, but did you know that they also offer a smokeless fire pit?
When looking at the Solo Stove and the Tiki Patio Fire Pit, the first obvious difference is the design. The solo Stove has a sleek polished look while the Tiki has more a mid-century modern vibe with its hairpin legs and wood on black accents. Personally, I like this look and could see it fitting in well to most backyards.
Both units have a removable ash tray for easy clean up, and promise a low-smoke experience. At 43 lbs, the Tiki fire pit weighs around 20 lbs more than the solo stove bonfire, but does provide handles to help with the load unlike the Solo Stove Bonfire.
A few other unique features to the Tiki Patio Fire Pit are the included cover and center cone which allows you to use Tiki Wood Packs for a reliable 30 minute burn. This may sound silly to some people, but if you have small kids, you know that tending to a fire can be cumbersome if it lasts longer than your child’s attention span or goes past their bedtime. For that use, I could see this being a good way enjoy a quick fire with the kids.
