It’s no secret that the original braais come from South Africa, birthplace of the braai. Family firm Home Fires launched as a one-man business in 1983 and has now grown to become a market leader in the development and production of braais. Their factory is in Worcester, some 100 kilometres from Cape Town. Since their establishment they have produced the very highest-quality braais, which find their way to customers both inside and outside South Africa.
Home Fires is a trendsetter in the braai world. The combination of extensive experience, quality products and good customer service is the basis for their enduring success. The family firm continues to improve and perfect a traditional product like the braai. Quality and personal advice always lie at the heart of it all. This trust enables Home Fires to offer a 15-year guarantee on all their products.
The robust Home Fires braais are constructed from thick steel, and are supplied standard with stainless steel grids. A braai is always delivered with at least one heavy steak grid with solid bars 8 mm thick.
Careful consideration has also gone into the ember maker at the heart of the braai. The unique concept for the Home Fires ember maker was developed by its inventor in 1983. The ember maker delivers maximum performance thanks to its shape, the special mounting and the insulated back. The ember maker is suspended in the braai, letting it draw perfectly. This guarantees the best possible wood burning.
All models, whether free-standing or built-in, have heat shields against the back wall and a raised and removable ash pan with a drawer. The specially-developed mounting and welding permit the braai to withstand extreme heat, guaranteeing years of braai pleasure. The braais are equipped with a top and bottom door to create a waterproof seal. All the built-in models are also prepared for lights, letting you easily check in the dark whether the dishes are cooking properly.
