Should I position my fire pit on a special surface?
We recommend that you don’t put your fire pit directly onto a patio or stone terrace as the natural aging process can sometimes stain the surface. To prevent this you can place the fire pit on older slabs, a gravel bed or a brick platform.
Gravel is particularly good for absorbing any fat that may fall while you’re cooking. We also recommend that you don’t place your fire pit directly onto a lawn as the heat from the fire will scorch the grass
What are the fire pit lids for?
Depending on which style you choose, the fire pit lids have several uses. They:
- Act as a table top when the fire isn’t lit
- Keep children away from hot ashes and embers
- Put out the fire quickly and easily and stop loose embers and sparks escaping
- To reduce water, snow and leaves collecting in the bowl when you’re not using it
Is charcoal good for the garden?
BBQ ash from your burned-down charcoal is basically wood ash, so it is perfect for enriching your soil. Wood ash is a rich natural source of potash – potassium-rich salt – that can act as a natural soil enhancer or compost.

How can I make my Fire Bowl safe?
You can purchase a safety rail which will form a fence around the fire. You can purchase this amazon. They’re great for public events or if you have small children running around. However, you should always supervise children carefully when you have a fire burning.
How do I know when my fire is ready to cook over?
You should light your fire at least an hour before you want to start cooking, longer if possible. This will give it a chance to burn down and create the red-hot embers you need for cooking.
If you try and cook over flames your food will burn on the outside and may not be cooked on the inside. It also won’t taste as nice as food that has been cooked over a glowing wood fire.
You’ll know your fire is ready to cook over when the flames have died down and you have a bed of glowing embers. They’ll give you a steady source of heat and allow your food to gently cook through and take on that delicious, smoky flavour.
