Practice makes instinct


Bringing out and operating a fire extinguisher can feel overwhelmingly difficult. So, many use whatever they have at hand, such as a lid, a cloth or some water. But these are much less effective ways to stop a fire. Because you are able to practice with your Firemill at home, using it becomes instinctive and safer.


Fighting fire – with a twist


When it comes to fighting fire, the most crucial step in preventing a disaster is the time between noticing the fire and initiating the extinguishing. This is where Firemill can make a difference. To kill a fire with Firemill, all you need to do is twist it, just like a pepper mill. Firemill is designed to complement your regular fire extinguisher and is particularly effective for small fires in the kitchen.

Refill it yourself


When the CO2 cylinder is empty, it is easy to refill it, just like with a regular carbonator. The CO2 cylinder is attached to the bottom of the Firemill and protected by its casing. You will find CO2 cylinders in most household stores.


Development / Timeline


First test ever of the first prototype to Firemill in June 2016
Testing at the fire education center in Ågesta, late summer 2016 in order to get some feedback from the profession. We got more "praise" than we dared to hope for.
Prototype number 2 is subjected to tests in the backyard of Aspudden. Now it starts to look like Firemill a little bit.
Back in Ågesta now with the first completed prototypes for function test. We thought it was a great success, while we learned some important lessons.
Back in Aspudden, now it has got its final design by Kristoffer Rahr from Propeller, and the construction by Hans De Jonge from Sigma conectivity. It also has its name "Firemill". Aluminum prototype parts from Bredhälla Aluminum and plastic parts printed in 3D printers.
Simulation in the correct kitchen environment. Thank you to Licke Build! Our confidence is strengthened.
We took the opportunity to make an improv infovideo while we were at it.

Firemill in reality.


We thank one of our first "testpilots" Minge, who contributes with our first "unboxing" videos.
Again, our first "testpilot" that contribute a "test of reality".
More clips from "reality" mostly illustrating that it can be used without risking destroying anything.
