In theory, hot tubs are great. In practice, they are often a pain to install and maintain, and they can quickly end up looking rather dated and grungy. The Weltevree Dutchtub offers an interesting alternative to your more standard hot tub — it utilizes a simple design and its convection heating mechanism is fueled by a wood-burning stove. The fact that no electricity is required makes them a more portable option and really helps cut down on installation costs.

The Dutchtub is available in five different colors, weighs 165 pounds, holds 171 gallons of water, and comfortably seats up to four people. Each hot tub comes with a polyester cover which, when placed over the tub, rather makes it resemble a large crock pot. Slow cook yourself into a state of bliss with the Dutchtub. Prices start at approximately $5,760 USD, and accessories, including an ashtray for the heating element and a heavy-duty cover for winter storage, are available for an additional cost.
