How do I take care of my Flatout Fire Pit?


Flatout Fire Pits are best stored in a dry, sheltered possition such as a shed or garage. Leaving them set up in a back yard or at a camp site for prolonged periods of time will affect the life of the product. We reccomend a light cooking grade oil lightly applied to all surfaces of your pit as this will help to stop the surface rust forming on the Mild Steel. To season your hot plate and grill, apply cooking oil to the entire surface & bring up to cooking temperature (take care to never overheat the surface) carefully wipe the plate with paper towel or a clean cloth & repeat until clean. Repeat this process every time you cook. When you are finished cooking, ensure the plate is clean & oil is re-applied before storing. You will receive a comprehesive owners manual which outlines the safety procedures and maintenance to best care for your Flatout Fire Pit at the time of purchase.




Where can I use my Flatout Fire Pit?


Flatout Fire Pits must always be used outdoors in an open space, away from over hanging trees, awnings or patios and bushes. Many Caravan & Camping grounds prefer raised fire pits as they contain the ash and cause less damage to grassed areas.

It is your responsibility to check local council laws, caravan park/camp ground rules or rangers stations etc when planning on using your Flatout Fire Pit.

Monitor all fire bans/restrictions and abide by all fire rules and regulations at all times.

Never leave your fire pit unattended and always make sure children are supervised and kept a safe distance away from the fire pit at all times. Never allow Children to play, light or refuel your Fire Pit.




What are the Kettle Racks for?


The kettle racks provide a surface for you to place your camp kettle over the fire without blocking the airflow or taking up half of your hot plate space. They have 2 height settings depending on how much fire you have in the box. These racks can also be used for campovens to control the heat of the campoven without moving coals or logs around in the fire box.




Where is the Vegetable Oven?


The vegetable oven is located under the fire box and above the ground heat deflector plate. Ash and coals will fall through the holes in the fire box, so anything placed in the vegetable oven needs to be covered with Aluminium Foil.
