I'll more than break even on my purchase of my CFIAC through this camping season as compared with the purchase of wood at parks. So I didn't give the cost all that much notice.

And there's the other significant plus of not smelling like smoke.

Don't get me wrong - I'm all about it - just spendy (relative to say my grill at home) - I can see how with it you can save - just I woul think they could sell at a fraction and still make good profit ?

But all seem to be 200-300 so far - all expensive in my book - Xmas 2014

It's all about volume. There's not much too to the design - if every camper were buying them they would be $59.95...

I agree with you. If more people were to buy them then the prices should go down. Overtime I suspect they will, especially with the increase bans on fires and the transportation of firewood from one state to another.

I ordered one. Lots safer in the woods than a real fire and easier to put out and no wood to haul. What's there not to like?

Campfire in a Can

We used our Campfire In a Can last week at the AF Fourth cliff Recreation area. It worked great no hassle with wet wood or smoke due to the wind. It was quite a hit with the other campers as you could not have wood campfires on the site. It was great sitting back with the flames watching the magnificient sunset. The flame was also adjustable however we kept ours relativly small as we did not need the heat

We love our portable propane campfire. I'd prefer a real wood fire any day, but you can't beat the convenience and the warmth and the lack of smoke. Wood fires are not allowed at many campgrounds, and many campgrounds which allow them require you to buy wood there onsite. The kids love cooking over the propane fire as much as they do the wood kind, so that's an added bonus. Ours was 79.00 and ships free at amazon, came two days after we ordered it and comes in a zipper case. Here's a link:

I actually added vermiculite to my campfire in a can. Wasn't really impressed with the un-natural look of the flame. Vermiculite helped a lot. I still think the logs look unrealistic and are molded in an odd shape, but I havent seen the others in real life to compare.

We've used a Fire Dancer for about 6 years now. It's great for places where you can't have campfires. We can use it on the beach, in National Forests when campfires are banned, and in RV parks that don't allow campfires. We were asked to put it out only once in an area where campfires were banned. This was because other campers saw it and thought it was OK to build wood campfires so basically it set a bad precedent! The Fire Dancer has held up well! Fire Dancer- Made in USA
