- follow the lighting instructions for your stove
- use the right fuel for your stove
- be careful handling your stove during and after use, although it cools quickly metal parts retain heat.
- make sure it’s on a level surface.
- set up your stove a safe distance away from flammable materials, petrol, gas, or such as tent, clothing,
camping furniture or vehicles.
- make sure nothing flammable is underneath your stove.
- wait for the fire to have burned out before attempting to remove hot embers/coals from your stove.
- use tongs to remove them do not discard in undergrowth or onto grass. place the coals/embers in a
spare pan and dowse with water and make sure it’s completely extinguished. Then dispose.
***VERY IMPORTANT*** after use you must ensure that the stove is completely extinguished and wait a full 30 mins before attempting to touch or pack the stove away.
- use any of our stoves indoors or inside a tent*
- leave your stove unattended or with children.
- put your stove on a blanket or plastic
- set up your stove on a painted or varnished table. Plain wood is fine but place 6-8 sheets of silver foil underneath before you light up.
- set your stove up on grass, but take care to put 6-8 layers of silver foil under the stove to prevent scorching of the ground. (we recommend you do this on stone patios too)
- improve the life span of your stove and a give it a clean, a little bit of washing up liquid on a scouring sponge works a treat. Don’t pour water over your stove this will encourage rust.
- store your stove indoors or in a shed or outdoor cupboard this will preserve it nicely.
