Breeo and Solo Stove fire pits are practical for backyard use as well as for camping. They also provide a cooking platform for either grilling or roasting, making them efficient for a quick fire-side snack or a full grilled meal.
Both Breeo and Solo Stove use durable materials and a simple design which is both durable and efficient. These fire pits look similar at a first glance but they’re quite different in how they intake air, how long they last, and even on the types of foods they can prepare.
Furthermore, there are multiple Breeo and Solo Stove fire pit series which makes a general comparison between all models a bit more difficult. However, you can analyze these 2 fire pits by considering the following.
Breeo vs Solo Stove
Both fire pits are smokeless. Of course, there is no true possibility of a 100% smokeless fire pit. But both Breeo and Solo stove is as close as possible to this goal. The way they make this a reality is interesting because they both rely on air intake but under different principles.
Solo Stove uses a double wall system for airflow. These double walls aren’t sealed at the top and the bottom. Air intake happens true the bottom and as it gets hot it starts to rise. At the top, the newly-intake hot air meets the flame inside the fire pit, essentially burning and creating a larger flame that burns almost all the smoke.
The Breeo fire pit uses a similar air circulation principle. The essential element to a smokeless fire is a lot of air intake. This is achieved by bottom fire pit holes in Breeo fire pits plus external air intake through a similar double wall system. The 4 feet joined in an X-style under the fire pit have air openings that fuel the fire with extra air. This burns smoke efficiently.
A smokeless fire pit has multiple benefits which include the following.
A unique flame
The flame of a smokeless fire pit looks very different from the classic flame of a fire pit. It adds a cool factor to the fire. This can be seen in both Breeo and Solo Stove fire pits where the hot air from the double walls meets the main combustion chamber through holes that shape the flames.
Higher heat output
Both fire pits come with higher heat output. More oxygen fuels the flame to burn more intensely. This makes both Breeo and Solo Stove great portable fire pits for the cold months.
Smoke-free backyard time
Since there’s no smoke these fire pits are recommended for small backyards and even for patios as they burn with a reduced impact on their immediate vicinity.
Grilling and roasting
Grilling and roasting are possible on smokeless fire pits. While Solo Stove isn’t as good for grilling, Breeo can be a good option for foodies.
Materials and durability
Both fire pits use 304 stainless steel. Breeo Stoves use thicker stainless steel which also makes them more durable. Thicker steel comes with higher heat resistance which recommends Breeo for all users concerned about durability issues.
You also need to factor in Breeo fire pits that are US-made. Together with thicker steel and the guarantee of US manufacturing, Breeo fire pits are the main option for durability.

Solo Stove is a bit different. Its roasting ring works for burgers and a few other small vegetables. However, the cooking surface is small by comparison. Breeo fire pits are the main choice for all those interested in cooking.

There are no accessories for making the fire burn differently or for changing the way the fire pit looks except the steel spark screen which has both a protective role and a decorative role.
