What is the Biolite Firepit+
The Biolite Firepit+ is a portable, smokeless wood and charcoal burning fire pit that comes with an integrated fan system that creates a smokeless flame, making it the perfect fire pit for those who love to cook and spend time in the great outdoors.
The part I love best is the fact that, unlike other firepits, the Biolite Firepit+ is see-through, so we get the full feel of a campfire without the worry that comes with fire bans! Every western camper knows the importance of having a reliable firepit, especially during fire bans. Already in April, campfires must be in enclosed pits. Luckily we had our Biolite FirePit+. It is the perfect solution for those of us who love to sit around a cozy fire, yet don’t want to violate fire restrictions (Class C Misdemeanor with a $500 fine).
Can you Cook With the Biolite Firepit+
Absolutely, one of the Biolite Firepit+’s best features is the ability to cook a variety of meals. This past weekend we ate like kings, eggs and bacon for breakfast, burritos, cheesburgers, steaks, hot dogs and veggies for dinner… all cooked on the BioLite Firepit+!!
Our Biolite Firepit+ came with a grill grate, so we didn’t even bring our now retired camping grill. I didn’t realize this until we came home, but the Biolite App comes with a variety of recipes to help beginner outdoor chefs get started. Plus, with the fan system’s ability to control the heat output, we can easily adjust the temperature to get the perfect cooking conditions. Talk about luxury!!
How Does the Biolite Firepit+ Work
The Biolite Firepit+ is designed with an integrated fan system that controls the airflow, allowing for more efficient combustion. The fan system is powered by a rechargeable battery pack, and the speed of the fan can be adjusted manually or, as forementioned, through the Biolite App. The fan also doubles as a USB charging station, making it perfect for charging your mobile devices when you return from an exciting day of adventuring!!

Yes, the Biolite Firepit+ is designed to be smokeless. The fan system controls the airflow, allowing for a more efficient and cleaner burn. This means you won’t have to play musical chairs, to avoid the plethora of smoke from a traditional campfire!

Is the Biolite Firepit+ Easy to Transport
When it comes to portable fire pits, the Biolite Firepit+ is truly in a league of its own! However, there are a few other systems out on the market, though they pale in comparison, I feel compelled to mention them.
- Solo Stove Bonfire: The Solo Stove Bonfire is a smokeless wood-burning fire pit that comes with a unique airflow system, allowing for a clean burn. It doesn’t come with a fan system or a USB charging station, nor does it have the ambiance of a real fire as you cannot see the bottom of the Solo Stove, priced at $79.99 – $449.
- Tiki Brand Fire Pit: The Tiki Brand Fire Pit is comparable to the Solo Stove as it is a smokeless wood burning fire pit, but it lacks the ambiance of a real fire because it is solid metal all around, priced from $245-$549.
