The S'mores Marker basically came pre-setup, there wasn't much to do other than bend out the three folded in sporks on the S'MORES HEAT Cooking Fuel Suspension Frame that will hold the Roasting Safety Screen when the fuel canister, called S'MORES HEAT, is burning.
When you get more of the S'MORES HEAT two canisters come in a box as you can see here. Each canister burns for about an hour or 20 marshmallows worth of roasting if your family and friends give each other time to use it safety.
Beyond three parts I listed, there is a red S'mores Maker Serving Tray that you put the ingredients around the fuel when it is burning so easy to reach your graham crackers, candy bars, and marshmallows as well as two roasting forks.
I did a test run of using the maker two nights before the party to make sure I knew how it worked. The S"MORES HEAT is easy to open and close, the inverted screen does indeed put it out, but it takes about 30 minutes for the fuel canister to cool completely down. Inside the canister is a purple gel substance that heats up but does create flames. We noted that holding the marshmallows 1-2 inches above the mesh just did not work in terms of roasting. However holding it closer was a risky because if the marshmallow touched the safety screen it immediately set the marshmallow on fire. We decided we'd need a chair for someone because it took about 2-4 minutes to get the marshmallows as we each wanted.
|Chairs weren't used by everyone.|
Speaking of marshmallows I used a new type especially shaped for s'mores as well as four types of flat candy bars and two types of graham crackers. I wanted my guests to have options!
Here are some images from our party. The lady who won the kit gave it to the family with the two girls. The girls were thrilled, the father, not so much... he knows he's going to be bothered for s'mores now "all the time."
