Instructional video:


  • Do not start the pyrolysis until the door is fully closed.
  • Ensure good ventilation during and after the pyrolysis. Especially animals (especially birds) should be in a well-ventilated area during this time. Some birds and reptiles can react very sensitively to the fumes. Small animals also react during the pyrolysis to the local temperature fluctuations.
  •  In our ovens, the fumes emanating from the pyrolysis are safe for people, including children and people with health problems
