This incense burner/censer is suitable for burning incense cones as well as loose incense or any incense that requires a charcoal disc to burn.
Simply add a small amount of salt or sand to the bottom of the container to help with heat absorption and then place your cone incense or charcoal disc (for loose incense) on top of the salt or sand and ignite.
The burner does get hot, so make sure you have it in a safe place before using and be careful not to touch it or try to move it once the incense cone or charcoal disc is lit. Also, you can use the lid while burning loose incense on a charcoal disc but not when burning incense cones, as the lid interferes with the cones ability to burn and will simply snuff it out.
The burner measures 4 cm tall without the lid, 9 cm tall with the lid, and is 7 cm wide.
