About this project

The Amazing Campfire In A Can - Patent Pending

The Amazing Campfire In A Can makes it easy to have a campfire. It is ideal for camping, the backyard, beach and everywhere in between. Our design has solved many of the problems that typically hinder people from having campfires more often.

You can burn wood, fire logs or charcoal. Its compact size makes it easy to store and transport. The unique canister and base design allows the fire to be quickly and safely extinguished. Our goal was to create a portable campfire that was designed to work and built to last.

       
  The Campfire In A Can Design VS Traditional Campfire Designs
         

The different shape, size and design of the Campfire In A Can burner allows all the elements that make a great fire to come together.

Heat Distribution / Fire Visibility

A compact diameter vertical burner design transfers heat from the campfire to the burner walls efficiently. The burner walls then radiate that heat outward. In addition, direct heat from the fire flows out through the air intake holes along the sides of the burner. The vertical burner design produces a large hot flame pattern at the top of the campfire/burner. 

Fuel Positioning

Fuel is strategically positioned and burned in the upright position. This is the most efficient way for solid fuel to burn.

Draft / Airflow  

The movement of air that is created when hot air leaves a campfire draws in fresh combustion air to the fire. The trick is to accelerate the out flow of hot air while accelerating the inflow of fresh combustion air around the fuel. Our burner design accomplishes this balance perfectly.

The Canister System

Everything is in the Can

Grab your Campfire In A Can and head out, it’s as simple as that, no looking around for parts or pieces. Our design makes keeping everything together a breeze. It’s designed to house all the parts inside the canister. This also makes storage, whether on the go or at home, easy. You have a clean canister to stow away, no messy dirty parts to deal with. Enjoy your campfire where you want it. Don’t be stuck with the location of a fire ring.

Extinguishing the Fire is a Snap

The unique canister and base design allows the fire to be quickly and safely extinguished by placing the canister over the base. Once the canister is snapped down the fire goes out and no smoke or debris can blow around. No air, no fire. All remains of the fire are safely contained inside the canister until properly disposed of. We’re sure Smokey the Bear would give this feature two thumbs up. Many campsites and beaches restrict open uncontained fires and require the use of raised fire pits. With Campfire In A Can you are good to go. Our design is considered a contained fire and using the stand to elevate it off the ground keeps you in compliance with the raised fire pits only rule. Once cool it is easily stored leaving no trace of a fire behind.

Let's Get Cooking

Cooking can be just as fun in your own backyard as it is when you are at a campground. We've included the tools you need to make it easy whether you're cooking over charcoal or wood coals. This campfire goes from campfire to cooking and back again simply and easily. Use the grill to throw on some burgers or foil dinner, use a dutch oven, create some awesome shish kabobs using the skewers. Whip up some bacon and eggs in a big skillet using the cooking grate. Nothing beats campfire cooking in the great outdoors.

A lot of work has already gone into making this product. Many hours have been spent building prototypes and testing. Once we agreed on the best design to move forward with we invested in having the CAD drawings done and produced prototypes to burn and test. Then more drawings, more prototypes and more testing till we got it right. We confirmed tooling and manufacturing costs and applied for patents. We're ready to go into production. All we need now is to hit our funding goal so we can share Campfire In A Can with the world.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter project. However, this is not our first time bringing a new product to the marketplace. We currently manufacture a high quality propane campfire and will be using the same manufacturing and tooling partners for our new project. We see the risk factor as very low. Prototypes are fire tested and complete, manufacturing costs are established. We are confident that any hiccups that may arise can be easily handled as we have been through this process many times before.

  • Great question! You would want to pick the Deluxe reward if you are worried about transfer of heat downward onto a surface. This model comes with the steel base, which keeps the burner itself off the ground. This reward also has the stand that brings it off the ground, allowing for great air flow underneath. This will keep the heat away from the surface you want to keep looking great.

  • In the prototype video, you might notice some small indentations in the black base that the burner walls fit into to keep them from sliding around on the base.

    The final manufactured Deluxe model will have a 1/4" raised center platform that will fit in the middle of the burner. This way, the burner will sit on the base, and side to side movement will be very minimal.
