Fire Safety
Please Remember the Importance...

Keep Calm and Fire Safety On!

As New Zealand comes into the hotter seasons,  it is important to remember fire safety!


Decks, grass, fences and spaces under decks become extremely dry causing an increased chance of embers catching flame and causing areas around you to catch fire.


The Kiwi Outdoor Oven is one of the only outdoor oven / fire on the market that is not classed as an open fire and can be used in a fire ban or dry weather, due to its enclosed fire box with a flue spark arrestor. This is a huge bonus to The Kiwi Outdoor family as it means we are able to continually use our ovens throughout Summer, however be sensible about usage and think about how FIRE loves to spread!

Every year there are fires caused by fires set up for cooking and the devastation created can be large and extremely scary for those affected.. As a fire owner it is our responsibility to be a safe , respectful and take the time to ensure our usage of The Kiwi Outdoor oven doesn't result in the destruction of  anything other than the wood in the fire box.

Some Handy Hints​

  • Keep the area around the fire damp and a water bottle / hose  handy for hitting any escaped embers

  • Before you leave the fire for the night, make sure you shut the doors and close the dampers

  • Remove any flammable objects from around the fire.

Note if a fire warden asks you to douse your fire, you will need to do so
