1. How long do your Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerators & Outdoor fireplaces last?

We have customers who purchased our 100% stainless burn barrel replacement models that are still working like new after 12 years. When we started producing incinerators in 1999, we offered models with a steel base ring. Although it costs less, the steel base ring eventually rusted out. However, the stainless steel parts are still in working order. We discontinued using regular steel over 12 years ago and our customer base is much happier.

2. What makes your models burn hotter & last longer than your competitor’s?

Our patented internal flanges allow air to freely move around the incinerator body completely engulfing its contents.
The angle grates hold the burning material off of the ground which contributes to the hi temperatures.

3. Will your products ever rust?
No, we use 100% stainless steel, which does not rust. The surface of the incinerator will oxidize due to the high temperatures reached during burning but will not rust. Note: Oxidization will not occur beyond the surface.

4. Why is the Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerator round?
Simply stated, a round design is the strongest. Our incinerators do not bend or warp. The high temperatures reached by our incinerators would easily warp any other shape especially square or flat designs.

We’ve applied this knowledge to the design of our covers as well. Originally we sold flat spark arrestor covers but they warped. Our newly designed domed cover eliminates warping and increases the overall temperature of the burning chamber.

5. How long does it take to assemble your products & do I need any tools?

The largest model (2242-SS100) takes 45 minutes or less. The smaller models will take less time.
Work gloves, preferably leather, pliers, cordless drill with a clutch and a 5/15" hex drive.

6. Can we burn in our area?

We suggest you check with your local burning authorities such as local fire department or town hall to see the appropriate times to burn. Note: Our products smoke less than a barbecue and many townships and ordinances allow the use of our products during regular burn bans.

7. Does the sell price include a cover and angle grates?

Yes, all models of Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerator & Outdoor Fireplace are sold as complete sets. It is NOT necessary to purchase these items separately when you purchase a Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerator or Outdoor Fireplace.

8. What grade and thickness of stainless steel is used to construct your products?

We use 2 grades of stainless steel in the construction of our Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerators: 430 and 304. The gauge and thickness varies from 20 to 16 depending on the requirements of each part. The spark arrestor cover (which can be used for grilling) is 100% food grade stainless steel.

9. Can I burn plastic?

No plastic should ever be burned. We suggest you burn only dry material, yard waste, and non-recyclable paper products in your Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerator. Click here to view our safety precautions.

10. What's the difference between the base ring and an ash catcher?

The base ring is the part of the incinerator that keeps it standing upright. It is a permanent fixture attached to the bottom of your incinerator during assembly. The base ring is located on the outside for stability, and because it's on the outside, ashes fall straight down to the ground or on top of the ash catcher.
The ash catcher is an optional item. It is placed on the ground underneath the incinerator to catch the ashes. This helps make ash removal much easier.

11. How long have you been in business?

We started development towards the end of 1999. We were granted patents for our Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerators & Outdoor Fireplaces design several years later. We are recently celebrating over 13 years of excellence, click here to learn more.

12. Why do the holes appear smaller than the screws?

For longevity and durability we use stainless steel self-tapping screws. As a result the holes are smaller to help create a more secure fit resulting in a longer lasting incinerator/outdoor fireplace.

Top

13. Do you have any retailers?
No, we only sell our incinerators & outdoor fireplaces over the internet and through our authorized affiliates, learn more.

20. Will your incinerators work to burn out tree stumps?

Yes, just put your incinerator over tree stump fill with yard waste and burn it out. Angle grates can be removed for this procedure if needed so incinerator base ring lies flat on the ground. Always follow safety precautions.

By driving copper nails into a new stump it will stop further growth. Also drilling holes like you would when you make maple syrup will dry the stump faster at the end.

If you use our Hi-Temp Mini-Incinerators to remove a tree stump, do not let the stump burn to the ground level. It is important to be very careful as the roots of the tree could continue to burn for several days or weeks, which could potentially cause a forest fire. While burning, always follow our safety precautions.

21. How long do the components last?
  • COVER, our stainless steel cover will last for many years. After 12 years we haven't come close to burning one up.
  • ANGLE GRATES, If heavy logs aren't dropped on the grates they should last for around 10 years.
  • HANDLES are only replaced when lost.

22. How ofted should the ashes be removed?

The best is to remove ashes often. If you have 4 to 5 inches of ash build-up they should be removed. Ash removal is easy just tip your incinerator and roll it away from your ash pile. Shovel them up or dump them off your ash catcher. Always make sure ashes are cold.

23. Can I eliminate smoke when burning leaves?

Yes, if you incinerate dry leaves and there is little to no wind.
