Chummy Fire Pit Hot Pot Experience

Look at that lady! She’s having a totally amazing experience! She’s using the “Firo;” cooking in an open, blazing fire. It’s a tube. It’s a tube with a drawer in it. The drawer holds several ceramic pots. Each of these pots is hung in a way that makes sure they are always upright. Stick that whole thing in the fire, and once it’s hot just open the drawer and take the pots out. Each of the pots has it’s own insulated container to keep it warm. Presto! A nice hot meal n stuff!

Oh and don’t forget the all-important handle of the pot which both acts as a handle to transport the pot from the drawer and detatches to become a fork and a spoon! So very nice of them yes? Hot, hot, hot?! Too hot! Wait, designed in Deutschland? Just hot enough.

The designer of the “Firo,” Andrea Nimtschke, is looking for a producer to light this bad boy up. Invest in fire!

    Way to redesign the spork LOL But really, neato idea. The only thing that bothers me is that I think there should be covers for the pots so water ever is inside them doesn’t mess up the inside of the container while travel or moving your hot meals. Add those, and I think this idea is pretty golden :)

      Hey Jeremiah, Bep and Pedro. Thanks for your words. Firo is not in production yet. I am still searching for a producer and contributer. You know one? :-)

      The pressure by the steam was something I was testing. I also thought that could be a problem, but it worked perfectly in the fire. (It was sufficient that the tube cover doesn’t close air tight.)

      The inside of Firo was also never messed up until now by using it in fire. The pots hang on the drawer like little gondolas on a big wheel. Something I was curious about how that would work. I was happy to had always no need to clean the inside.
      And carrying Firo with filled pots? That could be something for less liquid food. But it wouldn’t really make sense. Firo is thought to be filled while the tube is already in fire. So you can refill as often as you want and eat as much you can. Imagine a picknick with different kind of vegetables, meat, cheese, sauces… You can choose what you want to make your own chummy meal…

      All best,
      Andrea
