Read what hundreds of happy customers are saying

Easy to assemble. Just follow the instruction video. I wish it would have had some simple handles. I put a pair there.
This product was very easy to put together. At first I thought the material was too thin to last to the abuse of the weather and burning but after a dozen burns and multiple bad weather days, the Burn Right Product is holding up very well. I'm actually glad the product is made out of light material as it makes it very easy to move around. I like the fact that I can set and forget. It burns very hot and very fast. Sometimes I can't keep up with loading items into it to burn or the fire will go out. Very happy with my purchase and I recommend it to all my family and friends.
Just ordered my 4th Burnrite Incinerator. One was ran over by a dozer, one I bought for my fiancé and my last one was crushed by a tree... I’ll be the first to admit these are pricey but you get what you pay for. I live in a rural wooded area and because of the design and the lid I’ve never had to worry about starting a fire outside of the unit. These things are incredible .....occasionally I end up with a bottle or aluminum cans in my daily trash not by design but it does happen and I’ve seen this get so hot it’s melted them both before. No more smoldering rusting out burn barrels like I grew up with. I usually put three bags of residential burnable trash in mine and it’s usually completely burned in five minutes or less. Kudos to the designer of these....very efficient and thought out..... there aren’t your dads burn barrels!Jerry Meyer
When I became interested in buying a burn cage I decided to research different brands due to the hundreds of dollars that they cost, to see if they are worth the investment. All the ones I looked at first were flat panel designs. After checking reviews and watching videos I saw how badly they warped, some after one use. Some barely resembled what they looked like new. The ones made of regular steel also rusted badly, while the more expensive stainless steel ones didn’t, but still warped severely. I do metal fabrication for a living and have learned that heat and flat surfaces don’t get along. I found the burn right product and saw it was round which resists distortion. The high grade stainless steel shouldn’t rust either. I made the purchase and it has performed as advertised and should last for many years to give a good return on my investment. After a lot of hard use it remains in great shape.any other brand would have been a mistake. Brian
We love our large Burn Right burning barrel. It kept the flames enclosed and reduced huge amounts of brush and trimmings to amazingly small amounts of ashes. It is great at keeping embers from escaping, and we even cooked hot dogs over it from time to time as the flames subsided. We used it on a hillside in a river canyon that had nearby forest fires and grass fires from time to time, although, fortunately none happened on our property. We did not burn during the no-burn seasons, of course. The government entities in charge of burning regulations allowed its use it at other times. Great product. And we enjoy the lovely people to deal with at Burn right. I only wish they still had the smaller version, now that we have downsized from our larger river canyon acreage to a smaller ~ 30 acre farm where there is less to burn and more people who want to cook over the flames.
We have the Burn Right large bin and have burned hundreds and maybe thousands of barrels of leaves over several years and the bin works great. The leaves burn down quickly and I feel much safer using this bin vs burning on the ground or in other types of burners.
Retire your 55 gallon drum.I've used my Burn Right Barrel almost daily for 18 years. It incinerates everything. Easy to empty what little ash is left. At this rate the Burn Right Barrel might out last me.Worth every penny.
I have had this product for 7 years and it has performed unbelievable. I live in a remote section of mountains in Virgina and garbage is a big deal. I get nearly total reduction in refuse when I use as instructed. I have black bears in the area and they are attracted but the Burn Right Product has survived. The only problem is the bears keep taking the handles, so I keep a spare just in case.
I live in rural central Indiana and have many trees on my property that shed lots of limbs when the wind blows. I have burned a lot of wood and tons of trash in it. My eight year old burner has changed color, but not its shape. It is one of the best purchases I’ve ever made.
My husband thought I was crazy for spending so much on a burn barrel. He now loves this barrel! We were tired of the old 55 gallon drums rusting out and then having to find somewhere to dispose of them. This barrel even looks good after continuous use. We save our personal documents and all our cardboard until we have a huge pile to burn. Our only complaint is everything burns so fast we are done in barely enough time to finish beer. Make sure you are well away from any overhanging branches as the flame can get quite high.
What a fantastic, friendly company! We got a phone call within a short time of ordering our incinerator checking on our shipping address. The gentleman was beyond friendly and even refunded a portion of the sale when he found out my husband had been in the military. The incinerator arrived quickly, was easy to assemble and was put to use the following day. And boy, does it work! Hubby couldn't be more pleased to have a way to burn yard waste in a contained manner. Nothing left but a few ashes at the bottom. Wonderful product!
I just purchased the Burn Right Incinerator. It took me about 45 minutes to assemble. I used a Milwaukee 18V drill and socket drive to assemble. The stainless screws went it fairly easy and I had no issues. There were 24 extra screws when I was done assembling the unit. I've done about 8 burns so far and it exceeded my expectations of the complete job it does burning all the wood. I have even loaded it with some wet wood and not a single issue. It usually takes about an hour to burn from the top down and there is very little ash left on the bottom plate. I read the reviews and everyone says it is awesome and I must agree. I'm expecting it to last a long time. You get what you pay for and I'm extremely pleased with this purchase. As a side note I sent an email into the office of Burn Right and I got an immediate return phone call. How is that for customer service? Thanks.
I have been using steel drums with holes drilled for air, the down side is they rust, very heavy, have to drill or shoot holes into it and are not very efficient. The burnright is light, holes many holes for air, don’t rust, comes apart for storage, and is very efficient. I have used it for pine branches from four trees that had to be taken down and it burned very hot but did not warp and was left with ash that I mixed in the compost. Time, you need time for the burn so you could keep loading and reloading. More than one would be more effective faster to reduce the debris in a more reasonable amount of time. Works well I would recommend!Thank you!
Excellent burner! This item lives up to its claim. The perforated drum allows for safe and efficient burning of leaves, papers and light cardboard. Have had ours for 8 plus years and has shown little wear. We highly recommend this item if you need an outside burner.
Worth every penny! We have had our incinerator barrel for about 12 years and use it multiple times a week for all of the online shopping boxes and everything else burnable. This cuts our family of 5 trash down to a bag a week. May seem expensive, but you get what you pay for.
This works much better than my stone fire pit. I was having trouble getting a clean burn on dense pack materials like leaves/grass clippings due to poor airflow. This incinerator works much better. I got a clean and total burn. The flames were well contained and there were no embers escaping. I feel much safer burning brush using this product. As a bonus, the construction seems like it'll last quite a while.
I thought I’d take a minute to commend youfor your terrific product. I have a second home in rural north central PA, where operating a burn barrel is a simply a necessity. I was fed up with the regular chore of transporting the wet partially burned ash in rusting drums that usually collapsed in a heap when they were lifted or moved. A friend suggested Burn Right. I’ve been using mine now for 4 years to burn all of my paper and wood products. It’s simply incredible! There’s almost no ash. Fires start much easier and, best of all, the incinerator remains solid as a rock and in excellent condition. At this rate, it’ll be the last such product I’ll ever need. Thanks!
I have had one of these since 2007. It is fantastic! The stainless steel does not corrode and the product is very durable. I had a burn barrels before and there was never a good way to clean it out. The Burn Right product cleans up in minutes and it's ready to go again. Buy one, you won't regret it.
Outstanding communication and their large incinerator works better than I would have ever thought. No more stirring like on my old 55 gal drum.
Qualityqualityquality ! Shipped quickly as promised, and this work of art burns as promised. Who knew all that ventilation turns my yard waste into dust-nothing left whatsoever.
I'm 73 years old and formerly used many 55 gallon oil drums with holes burned into the sides of the barrel with an oxygen/acetylene gas cutting torch to allow for air flow to the fire. The fire then in these barrels still did not have enough air flow for good combustion leaving copious amounts of ash, some only partially burned. The design of the Burn Right incinerator allowing for good air flow on all sides, top, and especially bottom takes care of that problem. Material burns much better leaving far less ash to contend with and better burnt material!
After several months of use, this is the best thing going for burning leaves!Just a couple of inches of ash after a full burn....amazing!The flow through ventilation keeps the fire really flaming reducing smoke to virtually none.The food grade stainless steel construction is very sturdy and useful to cook on too!
We love our home incinerator. It burns so fast and completely we can finish yard clean up in a fraction of the time. Thanks Burn Right!
Great ProductWe live on Cape Cod and smoke generation while burning was of a major concern. Once the barrel get rolling very little smoke is generated, as advertised. It's amazing how wood the barrel goes through in a day. We are clearing 1 acre of downed tress and brush and its what is needed to get rid of the wood. At the end of the day all the wood is reduced to a small pile of ashes, combustion is complete. We can often start the fire the next day just using the hot ashes that remain. Made a mistake of keeping the bottom cross bars in while burning logs. The intense heat and weight of logs caused the bars to crack and break but the customer service is fantastic. Sent an email about it and some other questions on a Sunday morning not expecting an answer till Monday or so. Ron called back in about 30 minutes, answered all the questions and sent replacement bars free of charge.Highly recommend it.
Hands down #1 best burn cage incinerator. Burn Right products has truly the best design and quality. Other burncage incinerators would rust and warp but the burn Right products incinerator doesn't do neither. Their incinerator is designed to prevent any toxic fumes from getting in the air. It's the cleanest burn cage incinerator on the market. They truly care about our health and environment. Burn Right products is also pro-military and they did a awesome job in providing me a discount because of my military service. Thank you for being Pro-American.
This is an awesome product and great for burning safely in the back yard! It also blends well in the environment.
Expensive barrel but it is fun to watch the garbage burn so fast because it’s getting so much oxygen. Just a small pile of ash when done in a few minutes. Excellent product.
We have been using our incinerator for about 10 years, it's very efficient and safe and it's an indispensable tool for anyone with a large property
Product arrived promptly but there are some manufacturing problems going on with it. The base does not have pre-drilled holes to match up with the cylinder so I had to drill them myself. Does do a great job of burning though
The incinerator is a beautiful design and large enough to put a good amount of debris inside to burn. I rated it only 3 stars as the ash catcher is barely the size of the bottom with handle cutouts that expose whatever surface you set the incinerator on. If you set it on dry grass, you might have an issue. I just felt they cheaped-out on the ash catcher to save a few cents. My biggest issue is the shipping. When I spoke to the owner and asked if there was a coupon for free or a discount on the shipping, he said 'we never do that'. Well, to my disappointment, a couple weeks later, I happened to go to the Burnright website and guess what I saw? You guessed it, a coupon for free shipping. I called to speak with customer service and they weren't very friendly or accommodating, so my advice is, if you need a burn bin, this company makes a nice one, but forget about their honesty and any customer service you might need in the future.
