I received 2 Sterno S’mores Maker Jr. kits in exchange for my honest thoughts.
My kids absolutely love s’mores, but we really only get a few opportunities to make s’mores over a campfire during the summer months. I was excited when I heard about the Sterno S’mores Maker Jr., which allows you to cook marshmallows indoors or outdoors!
We couldn’t wait to get started, so we got out all the fixings for s’mores. This time we tried using some Plush Puff gourmet marshmallows!
My recommendation from making s’mores over the years is to get everything ready so you have an assembly line. And while it is nice to indulge, we make sure we have portions set up for the kids so that everyone gets a fair amount and not too much either. Plus, you don’t want to have to scramble when that perfect marshmallow is ready!
Setting up the S’mores Maker Jr is very easy. Each kit comes with S’mores Base, Roasting Safety Screen, and S’mores Heat Cooking Fuel Suspension Frame. The S’mores Heat is sold separately, so you can refill as needed.
You simply remove the lid on the s’mores heat can and place it in the S’mores maker stand. Light, then place the screen on top. It heats up right away, and while it works easiest after a few minutes of heating up, you can also use it as soon as you light it.
We started roasting our marshmallows right away.
The great thing about the s’mores maker is that there is no big flame. We are used to campfires where the kids light their marshmallows on fire all the time. I actually like that the marshmallows don’t roast super fast, because it lets you slowly roast it over the heat. When we go camping, I feel like it is a frenzy of roasting marshmallows, and we throw out so many that get burnt or catch on fire. As a mom, I can tell you that it is not relaxing! But with the Sterno S’mores Maker Jr, we truly enjoyed the experience of roasting marshmallows as we spent time together.
As the marshmallows were roasted to everyone’s liking, we started assembling our s’mores.
What gooey, caramelized perfection!
We had such a fun time making S’mores with friends and family, and I love our little S’mores Maker Jr! It took just a moment to set up – no fussing with making a campfire. I wasn’t worried about the kids getting too close to a flame or getting hurt, and I didn’t have to worry about their marshmallows catching fire or burning too quickly.

OK I am loving those gourmet marshmallows!!! I like the idea of this. Portable and easy to do. And smores? Oh so good!
Who could turn down a s’more. This would be handy when we didn’t want to build a fire in the fire pit. Have to try the gourmet marshmallows.
My husband and I ate at a Caribbean restaurant and one of the desserts was Make Your Own S’mores. They used Sterno makers just like that and I thought it was such a great idea. I’m glad that I can now have my own. We love S’mores at my house.
Heck yes, we need to get this! I just love s’mores. It will be a fun thing to do over the summer.
Now those look like some delicious smores! What a great idea for a way to cook them at home or away as well!
Oh my gosh this is so dangerous! Smore’s are probably my favorite dessert and I have never tried a flavored emotional. What a perfect combination.
Those marshmallows look better than my usual and I hope I could wait for them to be put into the smores. This sterno is a great idea for the best dessert all kids and parents love.
Interesting! Growing up in New England s’mores are basically a staple come summer, but I’d be willing to give this a try instead of straight over the fire when my husband isn’t home to start the fire!
This looks like the perfect backyard companion! My family would totally enjoy this and plus, more of an excuse to hang out outside over the summer holiday.
I’ve never seen a sterno smores maker before. It’s a neat idea. It’d be great for parties as well as good old family fun.
What a great idea!! Easy way to make yummy s’mores without having to build a fire or some other flame producing mess. This looks easy to use, compact and fun.
Oh man, it’s been a while since we made smores. My kids would love this one of this nights at our backyard.
Oh my gosh I have to try to find the gourmet kind! In a few weeks we will be camping so I’d love to find these to take with us!
These look like such good marshmallows. I love making s’mores around the fire pit during the summer.
Now this looks like my ind of s’more making!! I need one fo these and those fancy marshmallows!!
Now this is a high quality tool .Nothing beats the perfect smores!
This tool is invaluable! The kids and I could make smores all night long!
Love s’mores. My kids would definitely love having this Smores Maker on our Summer camping trip.
I do enjoy S’mores also! I would have a good time using the S’mores Maker Jr and I have not heard of that before seeing this.
This is definitely the first time I’m seeing this. I love smores
I sure would love one of these. Those gourmet marshmallows look really good.
Wow I love smores even Im a grown up. I havent known there could be a more safe way in making smores. So thanks!

Those turned out really nice! Looks delicious!
I love but didn’t know how to make them. Thank you for this. Those turned out really nice! Looks delicious!So yummy! I can’t wait to give this recipe a try! I’ll have to try them!
I love marshmallows in ice cream but have never roasted them myself. Now, that’s a fun winter treat for the family. I didn’t even know there was a utensil for roasting marshmallows lol.
I made smores for the very first time last year when I went on a trip to the States and it was actually really tasty. I like the idea of the plush mashmellows x
I love camping and its always been hectic carrying a gas burner to the site. But it seems very convenient to carry a Smores maker lol!
Perfect for a camping night out this portable sterno is amazing. Have never tried marshmallows but they look so intimidating to take a bite.
I never had smore till I was in the US. We don’t have anything like that in Italy, or London, so I wish I could get hold of this maker!
This is the best thing ever! You get REAL S’Mores without a campfire. I love it!
Wow! I am so loving this Sterno S’mores Maker right now! I should probably get one for myself!
I need those plush puffs in my life!! They look delicious.
Burnt marshmallows are the worst! This looks like such an invaluable tool for perfect s’mores every time.
Looks Yummy. I like the idea of outdoor cooking. And that caramelised part, oh my world. It’s giving me life.
Yes, to having it all ready before you start! Love this post, and yummy marshmallows!
This Smore’s maker is really cool. I love the flavored marshmallows I want to try that Caramell flavor and maybe even the vanilla bean or maybe I’ll mention to gather LOL great review!
I love smores and this does make it easy over building a fire and making them.
Making your own smores is such a fun activity. Now I want to make some smores
