The Mini Fire Pit, the small 400mm Woodee, complete with Lid is perfect for smaller spaces and fewer people and enjoys all the design benefits of the larger family fire pit. Perfect for sitting around and a super focal point, the Mini Fire Pit will enhance your space, extend your evenings outdoors and offer a social setting for gatherings. You can also use it as an outdoor stove, and when it is not lit it makes a stunning feature table.
British built and designed in Herefordshire. The fire pit is made from extra thick mild carbon steel with strong welds and fixed legs. The Lid is made of 3mm stainless steel with strong functional handles and is perfect to cook on and will not warp in the heat.
This is a safe, durable fire pit that will stand the test of time and the great British weather. It can be left outdoors all year around and over time will take on a deep autumn red colour as it naturally rusts and patinates. With the addition of the stainless steel Lid, it keeps the contents dry and protects the fire pit underneath.

How does it work?
Add dry wood, preferably seasoned or kiln dried split logs, into the base of the fire pit and light using a natural fire lighter.
Fire needs oxygen to burn effectively and the Woodee provides this in abundance. The clever design draws in oxygen from every angle through oak leaf shaped air vents to the heart of the fire. This enables it to get hot quickly and ignites the smoke. You will therefore find it much cleaner, have less smoke and be more efficient than a bowl, dish or solid shaped fire pit. It will also be less affected by gusts of wind than other fire pits as the tall straight sides protects the flame.
Cooking on your Lid/Cooking Tray:
To cook on your fire pit, you are aiming for heat and not roaring flames. Embers or low flames are best if using wood, or grey or silver colouration if using charcoal. Generally, your fire will need to burn for around 40-45 mins before you start cooking which will give it time to build up a body of heat to cook upon. When the fire is at the right temperature, add your cooking tray, lip side up onto the rim of the fire pit. Brush all over with cooking oil. We prefer to use rape seed oil as it has a high flash point, but you can also use other cooking oils. To check to see if the fire is hot we add a small amount of oil in the centre of the cooking tray and then a knob of butter to this. How quickly the butter melts is a good indication of how hot the tray is. There are literally hundreds of dishes you can cook in this way, check out our blog for ideas. Some of our favourites are paella, full English breakfast, curry, stir fry, and pancakes!
Is it easy to clean?
Yes. Once the fire is cold use a plastic dustpan to scoop the ash out of the base of the fire pit. To clean the Lid use hot soapy water and a scrubbing brush or wire brush. You can scrub the topside of the lid which will be black with soot after it has been in contact with the fire, it will not go back to the shiny silver colour, but will take on a honey or bronze colour as the metal tempers under the heat. However just wipe the underside but do not scrub it too much as you want to season it so it becomes more non-stick.
In the base we cut out another oak leaf shaped drainage hole. This allows rain water to pass through ensuring you are not left with a puddle of water in your fire pit during inclement weather.
Small enough to pop in the trunk, this portable fire pit can also be taken to the beach or camping trips.
