Safety tips

A Big Green Egg is very safe to use, provided that the EGG is used for its intended purpose and that certain guidelines are followed. While assembling your EGG, take the following safety tips into account in order to enjoy the carefree use of the Big Green Egg and the mouth-watering flavours of all the wonderful dishes you can prepare on it!

  • Place and use the EGG in a spot that’s safe and where the ground is level.

    Ensure that the EGG is stable and never place it on an incline or uneven surface. Preferably place the EGG in an EGG Nest or EGG Carrier. If you have placed the EGG in/on a table with swivel casters, make sure to lock the swivel casters once the EGG is in its place to prevent it from moving about.

  • Do not place the EGG on a wooden or other combustible surface, or in the vicinity of combustible objects.

    When the Big Green Egg is in use, the bottom of the ceramic base radiates a great deal of heat. Avoid the risk of a fire and never use the EGG on or in the vicinity of wood or other combustible objects, or underneath low trees or low-hanging branches.

    The EGG is intended for use in a metal EGG Nest or special built-in table so that there is an empty space present beneath the EGG. Never position the EGG anywhere near a storage space that could possibly contain combustible substances.

  • Move the EGG by pulling it, not by pushing it.

    If you wish to move the EGG, we recommend that you place both hands on the EGG Nest/EGG Carrier or Nest Handler and pull the EGG along behind you. Do not push it ahead of you! The EGG Nest and Nest Handler are not intended to roll over any type of uneven ground, such as pebbles, soft soil or grass. Move the EGG across a stable surface and ask someone to help you, if necessary.

Big Green Egg has done everything possible to ensure the safety of the cooker when in use. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure their own safety and that of their environment, and to always treat the EGG and associated items with the greatest of care and caution.
