The Petromax Firebox fb1 and fb2 are a  great lightweight option to bring along on camping trips. The flat packing box is made from stainless steel and is easy to assemble and take apart, it is very lightweight and comes in its own tough carrying case.

You can put the box together in a couple of minutes with a few simple steps and then safely light a fire which is protected from the wind and also helps to prevent any burnt patches. The grille on top allows you to cook or heat water, or make coffee. We often use the firebox to brew coffee with the Petromax Perkomax coffee percolator.

The precise cuts in the steel serve as expansion joints and also supply the fire with air, the firebox does not become distorted even at very high temperatures.


Some accessories are also available for the firebox, a set of legs which raised the firebox 4cm above the ground, and further helps to avoid burning the ground and also some oven brackets, these two angled brackets turn the Firebox into an oven the Bracket is also made of stainless steel lifts the fire tray of the Firebox up so that you can bake bread under it. Depending on how the Oven Bracket is hung, the height of the oven, and with that the space for the baking can be adjusted.
