Comments about Product: I love this dragon and have gotten so many comments on him. It's a great way to liven up your average steamer. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it does not hold a huge amount of water. Otherwise this guy is perfect!
Comments about Product: I wish it had been made with a round area on the bottom for regular stoves (electric or gas). It does still work on the stove-top but is not as energy efficient as it could be. It is heavy but does a great job. Like most steamers, it will collect minerals on the sides and bottom unless you use demineralized water.
Comments about Product: I'm on my 3rd season with my dragon and it is very cute & I love the look, however, it has rusted considerably and I need to try & re-finish it (which I'm not sure how to). Also, he doesn't steam unless the fire is very very hot. Not sure if I would purchase again, I'm thinking the open top steamers are more practical as it is a pain having to lift the heavy hot cover each time you need water. Otherwise, it is cute & fun conversation piece.
Comments about Product: I was extremely disappointed with this product. I previously bought cheaper steamers for my wood stove and would only get 2-3 season out of them. So I thought that a more expensive one would last longer, however I only got 1 season out of this. After only 2 months it started rusting on the inside and by the end of the season it was completely rusted on the top of the inside and large spots on the bottom. Looks like I am better off with the much cheaper ones.
Comments about Product: This was gift for my husband, who is a dragon fanatic. Our steam kettle that we had sprung a leak. So when I saw this product, it was the perfect birthday gift and something we both needed. The only con is I found small chip on the enamel, but it is in a spot that is not noticeable. And yes, the steam really does rise out of the dragon's nostrils. If your looking for something whimisical with moderate functionality than this is your product.
Comments about Product: The dragon was much bigger than anticipated - which is good! We need moisture in the air from burning wood and had been using a kitchen pot. We love watching the smoke roll out of the dragon. This is a fun and practical product for us. To add aroma we use cinnamon sticks. We debated between the dragon or the train and are very happy with our choice.
Comments about Product: For the price its a good bargin. The only draw back is it doesn't hold a lot of water so you have
to fill it at least twice a day if you heat with wood. My stove gets to almost 700 degrees so the dragon really steams. I love it!
Comments about Product: We love this steamer! Good conversation piece and really looks cool when the steam comes out his nostrils.
The only drawback I see is he doesn't hold alot of water. This is not a problem for us as our stove is small and we don't burn it through the night. But if you use your stove constantly it may be an issue.
Would definitely recommend this steamer.
Comments about Product: Enjoyed the dragon and steam feature. I burn the woodstove daily in the winter months and the dragon only lasted 2 seasons. I recently had to throw it away because it looked awful and didn't look like a fairly new piece anymore. The inside was coroded, rusted and stained as well as the rim of the dragon and bottom piece. Shame that for the price, it didn't last very long in my opinion. Going to back to something very basic and less expensive.
Comments about Product: I had watched this item for awhile and finally bought it when it went on sale. Couldn't ask for better. Good capacity, goes 24hrs before I have to refill. As mentioned it does not "gush" steam, but sends a lovely trickle upward. It is perfect for our kitchen stove which runs usually @1500 deg, which is when "smokey" steams. If you run your stove cooler you might be disappointed.
Comments about Product: I have a very small house, so have a small gas space heater. It's a cast iron, Franklin "wannebe". Simply put, moisture is needed in the house, and this dragon really fills the bill. What a delightful solution for a mundane problem!
Comments about Product: I used this on my wood burning stove all winter long and loved it. The steaming nostrils were very cool and it kept moisture in the air. Completely durable and awesome to look at! Highly recommend.
Comments about Product: The dragon steamer is a fun design. We like seeing the steam come out of the dragons nose. We've had the steamer about a month and use our fireplace a lot. I've noticed small rust stains in it. Be careful to only fill it about 3/4 because the bubbling and overflow can cause white stains that can be hard to remove.
Comments about Product: Purchased to replace an old pot we put on the stove in the winter as a humidifier. Notice in the picture the steam is photographed against a black background...pretty precise placement.
Steam does come out of the nose, but nothing like a tea pot and my stove cranks to an internal temp of 1,700 degrees (i.e., the top get hot).
Comments about Product: Doesn't visibly steam out nostrils at practical level fires. It holds only 2.2 qts. (not advertised 3) so with lid sideways for moisture it is dry by morning unless I add water during the night. Also started rusting within first week of use. BUT it is so cute I kept it and deal with refilling constantly.
Comments about Product: Our little wood burning stove has a baffle around it so the top does not get super hot consequently the water does not heat enough to steam, however, if you put boiling water in it the steam does come out the dragon's nose (very cute). The water does evaporate and since its real purpose is to humidify it works. I do like it and am glad I purchased it.
Comments about Product: My stove is an insert with a small shelf in front and I could not get steam to come out, it was condensing on the inside and dripping back into the base; so it was trying. I imagine if I really ramped up the stove maybe it would have worked. Thinking it would be better on top of a stand alone wood stove.
Comments about Product: I have wanted this dragon steamer for years.I saw it again and decided to take the plunge.Now, I wish I had bought it years ago. I have not found anything negative to say about the quality nor the design. It's heavy and looks like it will last a very long time. It would make an excellent gift!
Comments about Product: A safe option to scent your home. I add whatever I want to the "dragon", along with some water and ta-da...I have a natural air freshener. So far fresh cut citrus peel and ginger have worked the best. And it's fun to watch the steam come out of the dragon's nose.
Comments about Product: Bought and given as a gift. It's sort of cute and very effective; the kids are still intrigued by the clearly visible steam and the painfull dryness of skin and nasal passages has completely cleared up.
Comments about Product: I love the dragon steamer. It's sitting on my wood stove at the moment with steam coming from its nostrils. Not only is it quite the conversation piece, it's also a great way to put steam back into our dry winter rooms. If you have a wood stove, this is a fun way to put moisture back into the room without plugging in a steamer.
Comments about Product: The electricity seems to always go out in NH, so we use our woodstove all the time. This Dragon Steamer has put the fun into adding a little moisture to the air. It is well-made, durable, sturdy, holds lots of water, and looks HILARIOUS when the steam comes out of its nose. With all of the power outages around here - we finally have something to giggle about!! We LOVE it!!!
Comments about Product: These dragons are great! They're stylish, hold enough water, and hold the heat. I use them on my propane wall furnaces in my cottage. They're great in the winter when the heat is on a lot.
Comments about Product: I bought this for my best friend as she was using her good cooking pots on her stove!! It is really great! The steam comes out the dragons nose when the water is hot, it's really cute and everyone seems to get a kick out of it. Quite a conversation piece!!
Comments about Product: Me and my wife used on our wood stove throughout the winter and it kept moisture in the air in our living room, plus we both like dragons and the steam coming through it's nostrils was a added thrill to see. Durable and good quality. Very pleased with the use of.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
