The combustion chamber is filled no more than three quarters of its volume with ethanol.

 

It is ignited with appropriate long lighter or match. It is recommended that while igniting the fireplace you stand aside and not before it.

Note: it takes 5 to 10 minutes to reach optimum temperature and for the combustion flame to be most effective.

 

To put out the flame use the extinguisher or close the combustion chamber with the additional metal device. Do not attempt to to extinguish with blowing. This will further inflame the flame.

 

Depending on the combustion chamber, the flame can be adjusted.
