Qrater is a very attractive campfire dish that can be used in the garden and in open spaces. All you need is to light the wood logs and the result is pure magic. Singing a song or telling a story while looking at the constantly changing play of the flames and the fire sparks is a very special experience that has inspired people ever since fire was discovered. It is a very original and heart-warming form of togetherness that sometimes people even refer as “the television set of the jungle”. The dish itself is made out of weathering steel, which is a special type of weather resistant steel that virtually has the same characteristics as regular steel. Weathering steel however, reacts to being put outside by gradually covering itself with a protective layer of rust or “oxyden” also called “platinum layer”. As a result, further erosion due to rain or fire is prevented and the Qrater can be left outside without a problem. With the optional skewer and grill you can roast a small snack for yourself. The grill can be used as an optional tool for preparing some hot snacks. The grill is not meant to be used as a regular barbecue for a large group of people, but as an individual option.Situation Early evening, people invite some friends to over. It's still a bit chilly outside. To create a cosy atmosphere and to warm up, the campfire in the Qrater is lit. Everybody is sitting around, and everybody who passes by, wants to join the group. Place enough off course, have a glass of wine and put on some music!! Optional skewer and grill When you desire a little bite, you can use two grill options. These are individual tools, on which you can prepare a small snack like a marshmallow or a sausage. You can use the skewer for small pieces of meat and for bigger pieces you have the grill. The skewer and grill are optional tools for the Qrater.Size matters The Qrater is quite big. This has several reasons: first of all, in order to make a big camp fire, and secondly: you have sufficient place to gather around the Qrater with at least 14 people, a guarantee for a good atmosphere. Third reason: if you wish to use the optional grilling tools, you can move the burnt wood that has now turned to charcoal out of the fire with the poker, and bring it to the side of the Qrater. You can grill whatever you want, without burning it. Never grill food above open flames, always above charcoal!

Extremis – almost twenty years of tools for togetherness It was purely and simply out of love that at the end of the eighties Dirk Wynants, an interior designer and son of a furniture maker, moved from his native region north of Antwerp to the other side of the country.
