A cast iron fire basket is the traditional way to burn fuel in your fireplace. However, contemporary gas fireplaces eliminate the need to burn solid fuels, and therefore come in wider range of styles. Thus, a fire basket also works as a non-functional decoration in empty hearths where the chimney has been sealed.
Add a cosy look to your hearth by burning firewood in a fire basket. Alternatively, place one near the hearth as a rustic, decorative piece.
