Woodee Fire Pits
Our fire pits are the ultimate three-in-one Fire Pit designed to give you a wonderful source of heat outdoors, enable you cook a feast over fire and when not lit to be a stunning garden table.
Our larger 600 and 900mm fire pits are deisgned to be a center piece for your garden with the stainless steel fire pits providing a contemporary look and feel. All of our fire pits can be used for cooking on and providing warmth for family and friends.
Our smaller 400mm fire pits can be used in your garden or taken with you on a camping trip or picnic for cooking and keeping you warm..
Mild steel is our standard original fire pit, made from British steel from Port Talbot. Designed to survive being left outdoors in all weathers, over many years, they have a hefty 5mm base and rim, making them heavy, sturdy and solid. Over time the carbon steel will take on a gorgeous organic patina that changes colour from the ‘rolled blue’ to a deep orange as it oxidises and rusts naturally.
Stainless steel is an expensive metal that is incredibly hardwearing; it doesn’t rust like mild steel and is easy to clean and maintain. The fire pit is lighter in weight and easier to move and has been designed to make a stunning centrepiece for your outdoor living space. Taking the British weather, high heat and constant use in its stride, it will give you years of pleasure. Over time it will take on a stunning array of colours as the steel reacts with the heat of the fire. It is a piece of rural art.
Our stainless steel fire pits do not rust the same way mild steel does. As you use the fire pit and the metal heats up it will turn some beautiful colours primarily blue and pink. This will darken over time but as it won’t rust, over time as the metal is heated and cooled it may bow slightly. This is normal and occurs because there is stress within the metal as it is made which reveals itself when it is under pressure.
Our fire pits should be treated like any other piece of garden furniture, cleaned, maintained and kept under cover during the winter. If you have purchased a Cooking Tray/Lid this can be used in its lid format to help keep the fire pit in tip top condition.
We recommend using either dry Charcoal or seasoned or Kiln Dried Logs to light your fire pit. There are many different types of wood - try oak, apple, pear or cherry if you can get hold of it as it gives a lovely flavour to your cooking.
We supply Charcoal and Kiln Dried Logs from local Herefordshire suppliers on our website. Whatever wood you use the most important thing is to ensure is that it is dry and has a low moisture content. Wet wood will smoke as it releases this water as steam.
The Woodee Collection is handcrafted to order and as such we allow up to three weeks for delivery (it can be quicker and sometimes in very busy periods it could be slightly longer). We will send you an email confirmation with details of when we anticipate delivery and will keep you updated of our progress.
You will be able to organise delivery to a different address and we will try our best to accommodate delivery days to suit you.

Fire needs oxygen to burn effectively. Our oak leaf cut outs feed the fire by drawing air into it from every direction at every level of the fire pit. Combined with the straight sides of the fire pit to protect the flame, it is a very efficient housing for a fire.
No. All of our fire pits have three legs which offer optimum stability (based on the design of an old milking stool). As safety is our primary concern the legs are all underneath to avoid trip hazards and they are welded on to make them as stable as possible. Combined with their low centre of gravity it means they are safe to leave outside, when not lit, around children and animals.
The 600mm and 900mm fire pits are set at knee height, perfectly designed to sit and cook around. The 400mm is slightly lower as it offers a better centre of gravity making it more stable.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to cooking on a Woodee. It is very versatile as you can cook on the grill, inside the fire pit directly on the coals or in a Dutch oven and on the cooking tray. To give you some examples we have cooked everything from a traditional BBQ and roast lamb on the grill to a loaf of bread and pheasant casserole in the Dutch oven and paella and cooked breakfast on the cooking tray (lid).
All our cooking sets have a sturdy 6mm thick stainless steel grill which fits across the middle of the fire pit. In the 600mm and 900mm cooking sets they have a practical long handled slice which has a stainless steel head, perfect for turning your food. The 400mm has a pair of hand forged tongs which enables you to pick the food off the grill or from out of the fire pit.
Generally you are aiming to cook over embers. If you are using charcoal the guide is to let the coals turn white, and with wood you are looking for heat but not roaring flame. Think cook, not burn. If you are interested in learning more why not book onto one of our Cooking courses?
We recommend giving your fire pit a good clean inside and out, every now and again, especially if you are using your fire pit for cooking on as it may become greasy. We have not covered the fire pit with any type of coating and the markings on your fire pit are natural makers marks. You can not do any damage to it by using a wire brush on it, it will just add to the patina.
A stainless steel fire pit will naturally change colour as you use it. It will go from the shiny silver colour at new to a honey colour with tinges of blue, pink and yellow depending how hot it gets; it could also eventually go black with soot. As stainless steel does not rust the same way mild steel does, you can use a pressure washer to good effect on a stainless steel fire pit. Used in conjunction with a wire brush or wire wool, this method of cleaning can be very effective. Just to note, you will not get it back to the shiny silver finish, but you can attain a pale honey colour with a bit of elbow grease.
If you have a mild steel fire pit, go straight to the wire brush! Giving the whole fire pit a scrub down inside and out with a wire brush will remove the fine layer of oxidising metal (rust) and leave a shiny smooth finish. Sweep this out and discard - don’t put it on your garden/compost heap.
To maintain your Fire Pit you can rub it down with a hard brush or even some wire wool (this will remove rust and may as a result leave a more shiny finish on the steel) and work in some bees wax or vegetable based oil. By doing this, it will keep your fire pit from oxidising further and remain in tip top condition. It will also bring out the patina in the metal. Be aware though that this natural layer will burn off when the fire pit is lit. Therefore this is a good routine to follow if you are putting it away over the winter.
