What if your backyard FirePit was capable of cooking pizza, bacon, burgers, pancakes & eggs, and kebabs?
Well, the BioLite FirePit and its accessories can. BioLite’s new FirePit is a unique, above-ground, portable FirePit that has the capabilities of burning both wood and charcoal, creating a smokeless FirePit and charcoal hibachi grill.
Using 51 internal jets, this FirePit is temperature-controlled via a Bluetooth app on your phone, and it can charge your electronic devices.
With capacity for up to four standard firewood logs, the BioLite FirePit creates hyper-efficient flames with patented airflow technology and gives you a front-row seat to the magic thanks to the X-Ray mesh body, enabling 360 views.
Lift the fuel rack and toss in charcoal to transform it from a fire pit to a portable hibachi style grill, complete with an included grill grate.
Control the size of your flames manually or remotely with the free Bluetooth app.
Features of the Biolite FirePit:
- USB Rechargeable Powerpack
10,400 mAh pack can power your fire for up to 24 hours. Detach and recharge via USB or use Solar Carry Cover to trickle charge when not in use (sold separately)
- Air Jets Improve Combustion
51 airjets inject the fire with oxygen along key locations. This creates a more uniform temperature and mixing of gases inside the fire which dramatically improves combustion.
- Folding Legs
Makes portability a snap. Combined with the Solar Carry Cover (sold separately), you’re ready to go from the backyard to the beach in no time.
- Grill Grate
Cook hibachi-style meals using the removeable grill grate. Fuel rack adjusts to accommodate two types of fuel – wood or charcoal.
- X-Ray Mesh
The 360° viewing lets you see it all: glowing embers at the bottom, the gasifying wood in the middle, and the flames coming out at the top.
- Bluetooth Integration
You can control that fan intensity right from the FirePit’s powerpack or from your hand with the free BioLite Energy App for Android and iOS.
