About this project

A Stove Designed With You in Mind

The Inferno camp stove, with its unique vortex technology, takes outdoor cooking to a whole new level. Our stove is specifically designed with you in mind to be a portable companion for the backyard, a campground, or even a remote mountain top.

This beautifully designed stove combines science, safety, and efficiency to create a one of a kind outdoor experience. It also is the first all purpose biomass-fueled stove that you can control the heat with a USB powered fan from 425 degrees up to 1500 degrees.

 

 

What Makes the Inferno Unique?

High Heat Vortex Effect - The Inferno has the ability to easily reach temperatures of 1500 degrees thanks to its double wall construction and vortex effect

 

Oxygen Feeds the Fire - The ventilation holes in the lower walls feed the flame from below while channeling heated oxygen through the walls of the stove.  This heated air is then fed directly through the top holes causing a second combustion. This results in high concentrated temperatures, clean smoke free fire, and a lower amount of fuel used for each burn.

Air Circulates With Fan Creating Pressure - When the fan is turned on this creates a pressure differential between the two chambers creating a vortex in the stove. Warm air travels up the side in a circular motion to the top vent holes providing a secondary burn. This unique air movement is what creates technological magic of the “Inferno stove” 

High Heat With USB-Powered Fan - Our engineering team placed a high powered designed fan within the stove that you can control to drive air—like the bellows of a forge

Grip Pot Holders - Our design team strives to make the Inferno the perfect stove to cook with in all outdoor situations. The potholders are perfectly suited to grip anything from a frying pan to the steel mug you make your morning coffee in.  The pot holders fold neatly into the stove to allowing the Inferno to be easily transported anywhere.

 

Fuel and Power

Easily Accessible Fuel Sources - The Inferno works with any biomass fuel including sticks, pine cones, leaves, bark, and of course Instafire.
 

Fan is compatible with any USB portable battery - The fan can be powered by any USB power source.

Storage and Portability  

The Inferno was designed to follow you through your adventures wherever they may be. That’s why the feet and pot holders fold right into the body of the stove, and each Inferno comes with a custom fitted carrying case.

Made for Strength & Protection- crafted using stainless steel coated in anodized titanium. This allows for maximum heat resistance on the outer surface and provides the Inferno’s unique slate design at the same time providing longevity of life.

 

Our Story

Instafire founders Konel and Frank first aired on Shark Tank’s Season 7. Together they pitched the sharks on their entirely American-made, non-toxic patented blend of volcanic rock, wood pellets, and paraffin wax Fire Starter which is the most versatile fire starter on the market. Mark Cuban and Lori Grenier ended up investing in the company. 


The exposure on Shark Tank got the attention of i-Kabin which saw value in bringing the Instafire product to the emerging markets. It was a perfect fit since I-Kabin already supplied sustainable, economical and reliable portable power sources to rural areas of Ethiopia, Abidjan, Equatorial Guinea and other countries in the Ivory Coast of Africa, Philippines and parts of India. 
Currently, Instafire and I-Kabin are working with several African governments and energy companies to give back to people who need it most.  In many rural areas in these countries, women in the villages leave their homes in the wee hours of the morning to venture out to the woods so they could have wood to cook with for breakfast. Due to the high demand for wood as a biomass, many villages were chopping down their surrounding forests at an unsustainable rate. This deforestation pushed both the fuel source and the animals further from their homes, requiring longer journeys to collect resources necessary for living.

With Instafire becoming a non-toxic alternative fuel for cooking, a solution for a faster and safer stove was still needed and that’s how the idea of the Inferno Camp Stove came about.
