Look, we know—it's hot outside. But with fall fast approaching, one of these days, the cool weather might just catch you off guard and you'll be wishing you already had a shiny new Solo Stove Bonfire fire pit to keep you warm and toasty. The wood-burning Solo Stove is one of the best fire pits we've tested, quickly starting up a smokeless fire to keep you warm on when the weather turns cold.

At 19.5- inches, the Bonfire is Solo Stove’s mid-sized fire pit, that's large enough to burn full-sized logs in. When we tested it, we found it does burn through logs quickly, so make sure to keep a healthy pile of firewood nearby.

Here at Reviewed, we've tested many top fire pits and found that the Bonfire lit faster than most others—a great feature if you've got company on the way or want to fire it up for a quick s'mores-making session with the kids. (One thing to note is that the Bonfire does not have a removable ash tray to make clean up easier—for that, you'll want the newer Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0.)

Another upside we discovered during testing is that the Bonfire also produced less smoke than other fire pits. If you've ever been smoked out sitting around a fire pit before, then you'll appreciate the reduced smoke levels of the Solo Stove Bonfire (and your guests will, too).

So, don't wait for the weather to get cold before you decide to start shopping around for fire pits. Go ahead and give your backyard or balcony a revamp ahead of fall, outfitted with one of the best fire pits we've tested, the Solo Stove Bonfire.
