The Portable Wood Burning Hot Tub may look like an April Fools joke (it kind of looks like a bowl made in the 70’s with a spring attached to it), but a quick phone call to Hammacher Schlemmer confirmed that this product is very real – and very expensive.
“Made in The Netherlands, this handmade portable hot tub requires no electricity, hot water, or plumbing, and provides ample soaking space for up to four adults. Made of durable polyester, the tub rests on four sturdy feet spaced evenly to prevent tipping. Once filled to its 200-gallon capacity, a stainless steel heating coil system uses burning wood to provide hot water for the tub; water from the tub flows through the tubs lower pipe into the heating coil full of burning wood, and is naturally circulated using convection, emptying hot water through the top pipe into the basin, heating the tub to 104 in 2 1/2 hours.”
The Portable Wood burning hot tub measures 36″ H x 60″ Diam. (165 lbs.) and it is available for $6000.
