People Can't Stop Cracking Jokes About This Portable Hot Tub, 'Cause, Well, Look at It
Available for a mere $4,259 on Amazon, the Alfi brand Portable Fire Hot Tub might be made for people, but it could just as easily be filled with some chunky guacamole and served with a side of tortilla chips because it's basically a massive molcajete.
Originally made by Dutchtub, the wood-burning hot tub has stirred up quite the commotion on Twitter, with users pointing out that it not only looks like it should be filled with guacamole, but that it also bears a striking resemblance to a bowl of soup. Look, I dunno about you, but when I look at a hot tub, I don't typically worry that it's going to turn me and my friends into a giant bowl of human minestrone, but this one's making me a little uneasy.
Meanwhile, keeping it hot sounds a lot like keeping a campfire lit for cooking a tasty dinner. Once you fill the tub with
chicken broth water, it gets pushed through the metal coils to one end of the steaming pot hot tub and can take up to two hours to warm up, using the heat from wood burning in the centre of the metal spring. Once it reaches a suitable temperature, the tub seats four adults.
As for the "portable" aspect of the hot tub? Without its lid and attachments, the tub itself weighs 170 pounds, instead of 300, and it fits in the back of a standard truck bed. If you do decide to invest in one, note that prices range from $3,600 to $4,500, depending on the colour you want.
Check out some hilarious reactions to the hot tub ahead, and maybe consider buying one for yourself if you're looking to finally experience what it's like to be a giant carrot in a pot of vegetable broth.
