The best burning fire pit on the planet!
The Eco Fuego Fire Pit is one of the most eco-friendly fire pits on the planet. It emits only a fraction of the carbon found in traditional fire pits, while burning for hours with a consistent flame. It is easy to light and extinguish and requires no attention - leaving you free to enjoy yourselves!

The Eco Fuego Fire Pit is incredibly versatile, too. With no smoke and no smell, it is perfect for smaller gardens and outdoor spaces, while you can also pack it up and take it on picnics and camping trips.

Easy to light!
The Eco Fuego works just like a candle (just much larger!). Simply light a small amount of paper and place it on top of the candle. Once the wax melts and the flame ignites you will have a roaring fire with no additional work needed for up to 8 hours. Only want to burn for a few hours? Simple! Just place the lid over the top of the fire and the flame is extinguished. Simply follow the same process again and again. Caution, like most fire pits, the exterior of this vessel gets very hot. Use caution when placing the cover over the fire pit.

Eco Friendly
Eco Fuego does not burn traditional wood like a traditional fire pit. Instead, 100% Vegetable wax is used to create the toasty warm fire. This creates a fire that produces no wood smoke, is ecofriendly and will produce 90% less CO2 than a wood burning fire pit. You will also burn the equivalent of 60 kiln dried logs (approx. 7 bags) with 1 candle, a big cost saving (approx. 50%). A constant flame that lights in seconds, it is all positives!

Why is my fire pit not lighting?
If your Eco Fuego Fire Pit is not lighting and is not producing a full flame after 10 mins, try screwing up a piece of newspaper or kitchen towel into the size of a golf ball and carefully put it into the melted liquid wax between the side of the drum and the wick/ That will get her going. You should only have to do this on the first burn.

The top layer of wax must be fully melted liquid for the wax to ignite as well as the wick to give full impact flame. The Wick heats up the wax and the wax then burns to full potential and sometimes needs a little help. 1 in a 100 of our El Fuego Firepits will be what we call “Flooded” with liquid wax and the wick cannot get to full potential. If your candle is not lighting the above solution will sort it out for you.

Can I use the Eco Fuego Firepit on grass or my decking?
Yes, though be careful as the drum itself obviously does get very hot (like most firepits). We suggest that when burning on grass or wooden decking you put a heat resistant tile or wooden plate under the burner to avoid it scorching.

Does the wax in the container remain solid or does it turn to liquid?
There is 6.5kg of wax, the part that’s burning turns to liquid (Similar to a normal candle) the rest remains solid until the last hour.

Can you use the 8hr refills on their own?
No! You will need to use the initial 12hr Container or you can upgrade to the new Fire Drum. When it is empty all you do is drop the refill into the empty container and use again.

What to do after 2-3 burns?
We recommend after 2-3 burns clean out all residue from the drum and all ready to use again.

What is the wax made of?
100% biodegradable vegetable was which has been sustainable sourced from recommended audited suppliers.

Can the crop candles be used without the burner?
We do not recommend it as they could tip over. Once they are placed into the burner, they are more secure and much safer.

Natural wear & tear?
The Firepit is made from a composite called MGO, this will withstand extreme heat produced from our candles. After the first Burn you may see some cracks or bubbles, this is just cosmetic and will not effect the structure at all. We recommend extending the legs to max height to allow for consistent airflow to run through the chamber to stay cooler. This is Normal. The extreme heats create movement between hot and cold, nevertheless the composite is structured to deal with this movement. It will not affect the performance. Like Chimenea’s and ceramic ovens there will be cracks that appear. The Fire Drum which is dropped into the top rim will help protect the sides and keep it neat. It also produces more flame. When the Fire is out, and the tabletop is situated on the base you will not see the tainted blackened top part of the firepit. After all it is a firepit and they are never pristine like a kitchen oven.

How did we come up with this amazing idea?
The Crop Candle Company is part of Sustainable Wines of Great Britain and sits alongside the likes of Marks and Spencers and Waitrose. We provide UK vineyards with an Eco-friendly solution with our Crop Candles that heat up vineyards during the frost season to protect the bud freezing frost. The 30,000 kjs/hr of heat produced such an amazing flame and heat that we decided to design a casing which would be safe for consumers to use the candle in a sociable environment. We called it the El Fuego Fire Pit; the world’s first wax alternative fuel for domestic use. Now with a secured patent, the El Fuego is now going global. Due to its incredibly low CO2 emission and no woodsmoke pollution, it is making a new revolution in the firepit community. We plan to have new designs cooing out soon, so watch this space.
