Welcome to this journey into the heart of the history of braziers, these timeless symbols of conviviality that have traversed the ages, from ancient civilizations to modern households. In this blog, we will explore the evolution of braziers, their cultural significance, and their place in our lives today.

A brazier is a heating and cooking device used outdoors. Braziers have a rich history, dating back millennia. In ancient civilizations, braziers were often at the heart of community gatherings, offering warmth, light, and a place to come together and share stories. In bygone households, braziers were also central elements of the kitchen, used for cooking food and providing warmth during long winters. For instance, the Romans used braziers called “foculus” for cooking and heating.

In ancient Greek and Roman times, the brazier was a metal container on a tripod, filled with glowing embers.

Today, braziers continue to occupy a special place in our lives. Although modern heating technologies have emerged, many households choose to install braziers for their warm atmosphere, timeless charm, and the multiple cooking possibilities they offer. Whether in gardens for evenings with friends or on terraces, braziers remain faithful companions, in summer as in winter. In winter, it is quite common to come across braziers intended for roasting chestnuts (whether in the street or during festivals such as the chestnut festival in Spain).
