To reduce transport volume, your outdoor stove does not come in one piece. Read and watch how to prepare for your first ecological fire with Jackie here. Attention: once installed, the stove is more difficult to move. So choose its final destination right away: outdoors, of course, on a non-combustible or -delicate surface and at a sufficient distance from walls and combustible materials.


Place the stove upright in the chosen location. The wooden protection profiles of the stove are perfect for use as kindling later.

Then open the other boxes carefully and remove all the cardboard. The smallest box contains the pizza stone if you have opted for the oven option. This baked material of the stone is very brittle, so be very careful when unpacking. Keep the box around the oven module as you may need it later for storage.

The oblong box contains the central shaft with window (A), the chimney (B), the wood supply (C), the ash tray (D) and the top plate (E). The corner protectors on the ends of the chimney are made from mycelium and are compostable.

Installing the window

Lower the central tube into the stove as deeply as possible so that it cannot move at the bottom. Fix at the top with supplied bolt.

Installing wood supply and ash drawer

Hook the wood supply on the 6 points in the right flank of the stove. Check that it can no longer move. Slide the ash tray into the opening in the wood supply. You will notice that this is a bit more difficult after rusting - which is obviously peculiar to the material.

Installing the chimney

Place the smoke chute on top of the round opening in the stove. Never fire without this chimney, as you will lose the chimney effect, and there will be insufficient air circulation to travel the route through the stove.

Put the top plate in position

Lower the top plate (E) with the 4 hooks into the grooves in the stove and lock the plate in position by sliding it away from you. 

To use the pizza oven, remove the top plate from the stove by sliding it towards you. Put the plate on one side or put it in the box of the oven.

Placing the pizza oven on the stove

To get started, it is important to place the oven module on it before you start firing, not during! First, loosen the top plate of the stove by sliding it towards you. Put the plate aside, or tuck it into the box of the oven.

There is now a large opening at the top of the stove, surrounded by a series of perforations. The metal insert that holds the pizza stone fits right in, with the open side facing you as you stand in front of the stove.

The longer plate at the back of the insert has a folded lip at the bottom. Therefore, move the insert backwards first and then forward again to lower it into place.

Then you can put the entire oven module on top of the stove. The clearance left and right, as well as at the level of the smoke outlet pipe, is minimal, to leave as few gaps open as possible.

TIP: If the oven module does not immediately sink into place, it is sometimes sufficient to briefly move the smoke outlet tube. It should fit exactly into the cut-out of the oven.

Attaching oven handle to lid

Mount the pizza oven handle using the two bolts and nuts enclosed. To do this, open the oven module lid.

You place the washers between the handle and the oven flap. This is to limit heat transfer and thus keep the temperature of the handle low. You place the bolts on the outside of the oven, the nuts on the inside.

Using an Allen key and a spanner, tighten them. You will notice that this is quite laborious: the nuts are in fact lock nuts, which are made so that they will not loosen easily due to vibrations.

Even rusting

Clean the parts of the stove and the oven with water and normal detergent so that it rusts evenly. There is a film of manufacturing oil on the metal that slows down the start of the rusting process during production and storage. 

The chimney may rust more slowly due to the different composition of steel and oil. The rusting process can be accelerated by exposing the steel to water on a regular basis.
