Have Hottub, Will Travel
Someday, we’ll have time-traveling hot tubs. Trust us. We saw it in a movie.
Until that day, there’s this:
FireHotTub from Alfi, a modern take on the wood-fired hot tubs of ski movies past, as seen at the 2016 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas.
The tub, which can heat up to 100 degrees in just two hours, warms up the contents of its 220-gallon-capacity interior by cycling water through metal coils wrapped around a wire basket containing burning firewood, a process that may look somewhat familiar to home brewers. The temperature in the 330-pound fiberglass tub can be regulated by raising or lowering the basket, and there’s a stainless steel windscreen panel to prevent the flames from disturbing your soak.
The $6,450 tub doesn’t have to be hooked up to a drain and is meant to be portable, so if you’ve got a big truck, looks like you’re about to make some friends wherever you go.
ALFI is getting a new shipment of the tubs in two weeks and if U.S. sales exceed expectations, the company may create a second model.
