It is CE approved and includes Anti-Topple measures for added safety.
It’s small, help saving space, without affecting heating performance. It weighs only 6.1kg (when empty), so carrying it around isn’t exactly a chore either.

Paraffin heaters are far more economical to run. They are more costly upfront, but over a year they cost considerably less than an electric fan heater or bar heater to operate.
This Kero 360 is also super simple to use. If you use a light switch you can use the Kero 360.
Only use top quality, liquid combustibles with the aromatics removed, which are free from impurities in our heaters. They should have max 1% of aromatics and a flash point above 61°. Please see our fuel instructions here.
Put simply, we recommend using Tozane.
Reduced Odour Liquid Fuel
Virtually no smell, which can be used in all paraffin appliances
Tozane significantly improves the burning characteristics with virtually no odour or taint.
All of our heaters will run on this Tozane

These heaters use ROLF fuel. ROLF stands for ‘Reduce Odour Liquid Fuel’. While they are considerably less odourous than older paraffin fuels (like say, the ones that your granny would have used), but they do carry an odour. Most people consider this to be a minor odour, but some people are more susceptible to it than others. We recommend that you visit our store to see/smell a working heater for yourself before you purchase if you are unsure about this.
All fuel burning appliances can produce nitrogen dioxide. This can irritate eyes or noses and be a trigger for asthmatics.
In the same way that fans are not recommended to be used by people with Asthma, these heaters should not be used for the same reason. They can raise dust etc and trigger asthma. As a result, we do not recommend these heaters for asthmatics.
Most of our heaters have anti-topple features to prevent accidents. Some have in built alarms also. However, our Wick Heaters can pose a risk of burning as they are hot to the touch.
The Inverter heater is our safest option as it has a cool casing, a child-lock and a carbon monoxide alarm too.
We do not recommend using a heater in an unvented area. Carbon Monoxide is created in miniscule amounts by these heaters as they burn fuel. This generally isn’t an issue for large, able bodied people – and especially if the room is vented. However for very young children, it is not recommended that fuel burning heaters of any sort are used in their room – and again, especially if this room is unvented.
If you have used the wrong fuel in your heater, it is not returnable. C1 Grade Paraffin is the only acceptable oil for all our heaters. We strongly recommend that you use Tozane.
As stated on our Fuel Products Page, and on our Fuel Instructions guide, problems resulting from using the wrong fuel are not covered by our guarantee. We also outline what types of fuel can be used in these heaters in these guides, as well as our blog post on fuels.
You cannot use kerosene in this heater.
Paraffin is a distilled version on Kerosene. It’s had the impurities and plastics taken out, meaning that it’s made for indoor use and considerably easier on the lungs. It produces no ‘soot’ unlike it’s Kerosene counterparts, so you won’t notice any ‘blackening’ or Tar build up on your paraffin heater. These build-ups can also lead to problems with the Heater turning on or off. So, you can see why we only supply Tozane Fuel.
Kerosene is not safe to breathe in and it will damage your heater also.
So while there are cheaper oils and fuels available for Oil Heaters in Ireland, none are as safe for human inhalation or lifespan of the heater than Tozane.
If you have put oil into the paraffin heater and then change your mind about it, it is not returnable. Opened heaters which are not faulty are non-returnable.
The Cooling off period does not apply in this instance. This is in line with CCPC guidelines that states there is an exception to the cooling-off period for “items that have been unsealed or which cannot be returned for hygiene reasons, for example, underwear, cosmetics, earrings”
While it’s not a heater that we stock, it has the same internal make-up for the most part and it will point you in the right direction.
The first time you use a wick, let it absorb liquid combustible fuel for mobile heater for up to 5 hours.
Only use liquid combustible fuel for mobile heater with the aromatics removed, with a flashpoint above 61° and free from any impurities, in order to ensure that your wick lasts for a long time.
If you find that the wick is abnormally hard, if it is blocked or burning is abnormal, have it replaced by a qualified specialist, for example, the supplier of your heater.
Note: As the wick and replacement of the wick are not covered by the guarantee, follow the instructions for use, in order to obtain optimal performance from your wick.
If you need a new wick, replacement wicks for this heater are available here.
