Just a Couple of Housekeeping Notes

Most burners come with a small mat to place under their base, so that the ceramic does not scratch the surface of your table or furnishings.

It is also important to make sure that the incense cone has burned out completely before removing from the piece – the cone burns at very high temperatures and can cause an accident if not handled carefully.

In terms of cleaning, all the burners are either ceramic or resin with no moving parts or electricity, so they can be easily washed with water to remove ash build-up.
