You might be thinking the spot that the flames comes from in a fire pot. Is there a fuel used? It is really an alcohol based solution. Since the fuel is alcohol based, it burns completely clean. Which means there is absolutely no dirty smoke, ash, or soot.

The advantage of using alcohol for a fuel is you can also use it inside. Fire pots can make a wonderful addition to interior design in addition to outside. It's similar to burning a candle.

Fire pots were originally used in prehistoric times to carry fire from one place to another. Fire started to be a vital ingredient for surviving, but early people did not know how to start fires very well. So the best way to begin a new fire would be to ignite it from a prior one. Hence, fire pots were created.

Fire pots have changed over time and these days we have numerous home appliances which come from fire pots. Stoves, ovens, boilers, and barbecues are common descendants of the fire pot. A lot of our fuels were developed because of firepots also. Propane, kerosene, charcoal, oil, and electricity are all outcomes of the first fire pots.
