Handcrafted Decorative Nutcracker-Smoker
It's jolly good.
Since 1899, the Müller Company in Seiffen, Germany has been producing handcrafted wooden collectibles, whose whimsical designs are recognized the world over. Once the holiday season rolls around, their figurines and candle holders appear on many a tabletop and mantel.
And now (cue Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy”) you can get the best of both worlds: The first of its kind, this little exclusive-to-us nutcracker doubles as a smoker. Another delightful surprise? It was dreamed up in the same exact town where nutcrackers were invented. To get him huffing and puffing, just light the included cones, place it in the compartment inside—the top pops right off—and you’ll have a festive scent wafting through your space in no time. While any of these German gems will hold their own, they look especially winsome all mixed and matched.
Includes one box of incense.

Care & Notes
Place incense cone on metal plate inside of smoker base. Ignite the tip of the incense cone and allow it to start smoking. Replace the smoker top and allow the figurine to burn slowly on a fireproof, flat surface. The incense will burn for 15–20 minutes and the scent will last for hours. Do not leave the smoker unattended while it's burning. When you're ready to extinguish the smoke, place smoker cone in water. Store the incense in a dry place. Spot clean with damp cloth.
