We are the SOTO UK distributor.
Since 1992 – SOTO (which is translated from the Japanese for “outdoors”) has been creating some of the best stoves in the world, and innovating burner technology.
However their history started back 1978 when SOTO’s parent comapny, Shinfuji Burner Company, began manufacturing and engineering industrial burners. Founded by Hajime Yamamoto with the goal of creating products that produce the maximum sustainable flame in least amount of time; Shinfuji set about generating and integrating “Blue Flame” technology into their products. A blue flame occurs when the fuel combustion is extremely efficient and hot.
Realising the wide ranging uses for their technology Shinfuji expanded into other areas outside of industrial and agricultural use. Eventually SOTO was formed to cater for the outdoor market.
To this day they remain managed and run by the Yamamoto family. Now nearly half of the devices manufactured by Shinfuji are inspired by extreme weather conditions and are made of hand-selected materials. Decades of experience, the highest safety and technical standards, and careful safety inspections are behind every innovative product.
Here at New Heights we are delighted to be working with our friends at SOTO. We believe that their high performance products and unparalleled quality deserve the attention of the outdoor enthusiast.
More information can be found on their website.
SOTO’s major stove design improvement comes from their creation of Micro-Regulator technology, which means that a stove is practically as effective at 20°C as it is at -20°C.
