Best Garden Incinerator Reviews
A garden incinerator is super useful to have around, to burn scrap wood, leaves and paper (documents you might need to destroy).
It also makes a great outdoor heat source if you don’t own a chiminea.
Most garden incinerators are a metal drum unit on legs (so as not to destroy the ground below).
They usually come with lids for safe garden burning.
You don’t need anything fancy in order to use an incinerator.
Just place it somewhere safe and secure in the garden, throw in your rubbish and set it alight.
The holes in the side of the unit allow air into the incinerator for a better burning fire.
Some incinerators come with tools for poking the fire and some have shovels / scoops to help to clean it out.
These however, are not essential and the incinerator can be cleaned by simply tipping out (carefully and when cool) the ash from the fire.

This brand of incinerator uses old drums that used to transport food.
(Therefore each drum may be different in style.)
The downside to this incinerator is that there aren’t as many holes pre drilled as some of the others available.
There are 4 holes, but to fuel the fire with more oxygen, you may want to drill more holes.
It includes a lid and is made of string steel, so will not dent as easily as other incinerators.
This incinerator does not have feet so it could damage the ground below.
Overall, its a pretty cool piece with bright colours and functional use.
Interesting to see what pattern may be on your drum, as they drum was previously used for transporting food.
This is a middle sized incinerator.
Perfect for general garden use.
It has feet to raise it off the ground a lid for safer fires and convenient handles to transport the incinerator.
Its worth noting that the legs need to be added when setting up the incinerator.
The holes are pre drilled though so it is very easy to set up.
(Providing you have long arms or a helper on hand – one to hold the bolt on the inside and one to screw from outside.)
The ‘easy lock’ lid is convenient for storing and for keeping the ash inside until you are ready to empty it.
(The lid won’t accidentally be knocked off.)
