For this post, I’ll feature the best garden incinerators money can buy. I have also outlined the qualities an incinerator must have to burn waste safely and effectively.

Getting rid of unwanted leaves and debris has always been a chore I hated, especially when it’s time to burn them. Not only do I have to inhale those heavy smoke, but cleaning up after a fire is far worse. When did I decide to buy a garden incinerate it was one of the tenth best things I’ve ever done for my garden. You may be thinking should you purchase one? Yes! You should.

A garden incinerator is the safest way to get rid of leaves and garden debris. Similarly, they burn at a higher temperature which makes disposal faster and creates less smoke. Which means you don’t have to sit for an hour tending to a bonfire and making sure it doesn’t get out of hand.

Here’s a guide that will help you find the best incinerators for your garden, my only wish is to make your search a lot easier. Let me make this clear, I am not a millionaire, I cannot buy 20 incinerators and review them, but I have one at home the Gr8, and I know how to use it. With that being said, I have done extensive research on all the products I mention below.


Small / Medium / Large Garden Fire Bin Incinerator Galvanised Ideal for burning Wood / Leaves / Paper (90 Litre Fast Burner) by S&MC Gardenware

Great for small to medium gardens the Su0026amp; MC does the job, without being too pricey. They hold up to 90 liters of rubbish and burn them quickly without making any mess. Please don’t burn over the recommended amount as it will overflow and leave scorch marks.

The steel is durable and last for multiple burning plus it comes with a free ash shovel. They are not the best garden incinerator, so don’t expect them to last very long as buyers complained about faulty parts.

Nevertheless, the holes at the bottom provide you with the right amount of air-flow for complete burning of paper, leaves or small wood.

Why Should you buy this?

  • Uk brand which means quick delivery.
  • Durable steel
  • Decent price.


Gr8 Garden Large 90 Litre Square Incinerator Fire Bin Galvanised Burning Rubbish Waste Wood Leaves Trash Can Pit Burner Furnace Fireplace

I have always been a fan of the square incinerator, so much so, that I have one for my garden waste. I love the neat design, and they burn waste faster than the cylinder incinerator, due to the excessive amount of holes on the top and all around.

Don’t get me started on the netted top; they keep small burned debris from escaping which makes getting rid of rubbish quicker. Although it takes up time for assembling, it’s an okay incinerator for a great price.

Why Should you buy this?

  • Great for large gardens.
  • Quick delivery.
  • Great price.


CrazyGadget 125 Litre 125L Extra Large Galvanised Metal Incinerator Fire Burning Bin with Special Locking Lid + Ash Shovel

You can’t go wrong with a CrazyGadet; they have the best garden incinerators. The secure lock system ensures the cover doesn’t fly off during burning. Made right here in the UK, so delivery is quick, I enjoy getting my money’s worth, so I am impressed with the free, durable ash shovel.

Compared to the Su0026amp; MC, the CrazyGadet will last longer as the steel is thick and sturdier. They maintained their silver appearance after a few burning and was easy to transport around the garden because of the handles. Ensure the bin is cool before moving as it gets overheated at times especially when there is a lot of debris to burn.

Why Should you buy this?

  • Sturdy.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • Special Locking Lid.
  • Free ash shovel.
  • Great price.


Kingfisher SINSIN Square Incinerator - Silver

Another great square incinerator the second strongest with the CrazyGadet taking the lead. This bad boy has random holes all over the frame that increases airflow; this makes burning quicker.

If you live in an area with lots of neighbors, please do not buy this incinerator. It doesn’t have a cover so expect to see lots of flames and smoke or warn neighbors before burning.

To delay rusting keep this incinerator cover after use. Some buyers complain of thin steel, but overall it’s a great buy.

Why Should you buy this?

  • Easy to assemble.
  • Improved airflow.
  • Quick burning.

If you don’t want a square incinerator and don’t like the CrazyGadet, then consider the Home Discount. It’s a lightweight option but rust quicker than the other brands I mentioned above.

They become overheated at times and fire tends to escape through the holes at the bottom, so keep your distance. Similarly, they are easy to assemble and burn paper and garden waste. Even though it appears thin, they are stable and will last longer. They are not the best but, does the job, and it’s one of the cheapest incinerators out.

Why Should you buy this?

  • Lightweight.
  • Easy To Clean.
  • Great Price.


What I consider the best garden incinerator bin the CrazyGadet, of course, I can not stress enough, how much I wish I should have brought this brand. Don’t take my word for it, consider the hundreds of 5 stars reviews on Garden incinerators don’t have a long life span, but, at least
you are getting your money’s worth (four years) with CrazyGadet.

The rest are okay but not the best.
