Check out our options for outdoor cooking adventures and see which one is the right one for you.
What kinds of surfaces are suitable for a Fire Bowl?
Fire Bowls not only shed additional light, but they also provide gardens and properties with spot-on warmth. Fire Bowls should be made of a heat-resistant and durable material, such as the steel Petromax Griddle and Fire Bowl “Made in Germany”. The site and surface for set up must be chosen carefully as there often is only limited space between the ground surface and Fire Bowl. It is important that the ground underneath the Fire Bowl can cope with the radiating heat. Therefore, a fireproof surface made of stone or sand, for example, is ideal for a Fire Bowl. Wooden surfaces such as patio floors or lawns are unsuitable as they can catch fire or scorch. For the Petromax Griddle and Fire Bowl we offer additional screw Extensions. These provide extra ground clearance and a practical height for your fireplace.
Make sure that your Fire Bowl is tilt-proof and does not wobble on your chosen surface, as you will not be able to move it when in use. Also make sure that your Fire Bowl stands clear from bushes and shrubs. Also note that the Fire Bowl should not be positioned underneath a roof.
Which Fire Bowl is suitable for the Dutch Oven?
A good Fire Bowl not only generates light and heat, but it also serves as a practical cooking place. At best you will cook over an open fire while camping or on holiday with no need for a permanent fireplace. Apart from the Griddle and Fire Bowl, one particular portable fireplace is very well suited for our Dutch Oven: the Petromax Atago.
Fire Bowl, Grill, Dutch Oven cooking place, pizza oven, smoker: The Petromax Atago offers you the complete range of outdoor cooking options alll in one.

In addition to the Dutch Oven, the Atago can be combined with any Petromax cooking equipment made of cast iron, wrought iron, enamel or stainless steel and offers a great extra with its convertibility.
