A FireDisc cooker is an ultimate solution to cooking outdoor meals. It is a portable propane cooker that can be used to boil, sear, fry and blacken any food recipe. It is a cooker most notably used in an outdoor environment. One last thing to note is that cooking with a Fire Disc cooker gives your food recipe a flavored taste.
Trust me when I tell you that your FireDisc cooker can last a lifetime, provided it’s adequately cared for and well maintained. Also since the FireDisc cooker was designed with stainless steel construction to expect it to be durable. In fact, with proper care, it could be handed over to your second generation.
This is a big No. The FireDisc cooker was adequately designed with unique materials to be used with propane gas as its clean source of fuel. Now the FireDisc cooker cooks at a fast pace thanks to the higher BTU value of Propane gas which makes it burn faster than any other gas grill which uses natural gas (methane).
A propane tank or canister is usually a low-pressure gas Cylinder made of welded steel. An instance of a welded steel is when two half-cylinder sheets of steel are welded together with the addition of a foot and neck ring. The welded steel help insulate propane against fire. The Low gas pressure regulator on your Fire Disc cooker is designed to adapt to a 16.4 oz green propane tank and 20-pound propane tank around 4 feet.
Since the FireDisc cooker is one of the most versatile grills you can get in the market today, you can sear, fry, boil, steam, braise and fry any food recipe. The different cooking methods stem from the fact that the FireDisc cooker has three concentric heating zones. With a cooker like this, you can make food recipes such as Fresh Venison back straps, Fried Steak with gravy, Hunter’s Ultimate Grilled cheese, Fish tacos, Duck an L’ orange. You can even use it to boil sea Shrimps.
Setting up your FireDisc gas grill is quite easy. All you need do is assemble the components by nesting the 3-piece adjustable stand and then placing the disc itself on the four leg supports. Note if the disc does not adjust on the four support stand. You can readjust or bend the legs as needed.
When done cooking with the FireDisc, disassemble it from the stand and scrape out any sticky food with the use of a non-abrasive tool, rinse with water and wipe out the disc using a paper towel or smooth, dry cloth. In case it is a burnt food on the FireDisc that needs serious cleaning, strongly heat for 5 to 7 minutes, carefully add cold water and boil up to 9 minutes. Turn off and let cool and then dump out the water.
Do the manufacturers of this product offer warranty and what does it cover?
Yes, there is a product warranty for the FireDisc cooker which lasts up to 5 years.
No, you cannot buy the components separately, because it is often sold as a single unit. Meanwhile, only accessories of the Fire Disc cooker can be bought as a separate unit.
Rust or corrosion of the FireDisc usually occurs when it is left unseasoned and continuously exposed to moisture. In the event of corrosion don’t worry as this is only surface rust. In case of rust, all you need to do is use a cleansing agent such as Bar Keeper’s Friend cleanser and polish. You can also make use of a mixture of baking soda and water. However, always remember to coat with oil after cleaning to prevent the occurrence of corrosion.
No, using soap and any form of chemicals can strip off the seasoning from the Fire Disc. In Fire Disc Review section How to Use we already mentioned, that you have to use soap only once. You can always re-season it.
Season the Fire Disc by adding 1- 2 tablespoons of cooking oil. Then use a paper towel with the help of a pair of Kitchen tongs spread the oil over the entire surface. Get another clean piece of paper towel, attach to the Kitchen tong and dry wipe the oil thoroughly from the disc surface. Turn off the heat and allow the disc to cool.
The act of seasoning helps preserve the Fire Disc, by preventing rust or corrosion. Seasoning also goes a long way to keep food from burning or sticking to the surface. The act of seasoning will also enhance the flavor of your food.

Once that is properly done, you can then light – up by placing the flame over the burner and turning the knob safely to the appropriate cooking temperature. Follow the precaution of keeping your face and hands from direct contact with the burner at all times. Also, ensure the knob is on low heat when lightening.
