We’ve written about loads of camping stoves and portable firepits here at the Strategist — from classic Coleman two-burners to Jetboil super-stoves that’ll have you drinking hot coffee less than three minutes after unzipping your sleeping bag. While most of our favorite outdoor cookers are fueled by propane or isobutane canisters, it can be much more fun (not to mention more economical) to play around with a good old-fashioned woodburning one like this tiny but mighty tabletop companion from Solo Stove. Usually $105, the Solo Stove Mesa is $80 today on Amazon and the brand’s website. That’s almost 25 percent off.

A great gift for firebugs, or truly anybody who enjoys toasting marshmallows (by the way, Solo Stove’s roasting sticks are also on sale), the Solo Stove Mesa will turn wood pellets into surprisingly smokeless flames with the aid of your preferred fire starter. An adapter even allows you to use any dry twigs and kindling you find around the campsite as fuel — just make sure you chop it up nice and small first. The Solo Stove can be used for cooking or as a personal firepit. Either way, that authentic summertime campfire smell is hard to beat.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
