A fire basket is like a small grate that can be moved around. They are available in different sizes and designs, and are suitable for stuff like barbecuing sausages in the garden, making your terrace a bit cosier or warming yourself outdoors on cold autumn evenings.

There are small folding fire baskets that are easy to take out on a camping trip as well as larger ones that can stand in the garden all year round. Some of them hang from stands, while others have legs. Fire baskets also come in different materials. The steel ones rust over time. But fire baskets made of copper, wrought iron or cast iron often stay new-looking for longer.

It’s important that the fire basket has a base plate. This collects ash and prevents you from burning your lawn. If you want to use your fire basket to barbecue food, it’s also a good idea to get a grill. A lid for a fire basket prevents embers and ash from blowing away when you’ve finished using it.

3 tips when buying a fire basket

There are different types of fire baskets to choose from. If you're planning a camping trip or going to your holiday cottage, a collapsible fire basket is perfect. It's easy to pack and can be transported in the boot of your car, making it convenient to take with you on the go. For your garden, you'll want a sturdier fire basket that's stable and safe to use.

Also, check the spacing of the basket. If you're burning briquettes or coal, the hole spacing shouldn't be too wide – if it is, stick to wood. When burning firewood, look for a basket with a large opening that allows you to put logs in without burning yourself.

When it comes to materials for your fire basket, it's mostly about personal preference, but durability matters too. Copper, wrought iron or cast iron fire baskets often keep their appearance for longer, while steel can rust over time. If you plan to leave your fire basket outdoors all day, it's important to choose one with a protective coating to shield it from the weather.

Safety should always be a top priority when dealing with fire. To enhance safety, consider these accessories for your fire basket:

  • A bottom plate collects ash and prevents the ground from burning, adding an extra layer of safety.
  • Lids or spark arresters prevent sparks and ash particles from spreading and causing potential hazards.
  • Feet or stands can protect the ground underneath the fire basket from damage due to heat, making it safer for outdoor use.

When barbecuing in your garden, it's essential to follow safety guidelines.
