A beautiful incense holder adds to the aesthetics of burning incense. The best incense holder allows you to burn incense safely and stylishly. These are my favorite incense burners that are available right now. I prefer materials like metal, stone, and ceramics for their durability and safety.

Overall Best Incense Holder

Nippon Kodo Large Bamboo Leaf Cast Iron Incense Holder 

Nippon Kodo Large Bamboo Leaf Cast Iron Incense Holder 

My favorite by far. The elegant design looks great and is practical. Use the included, movable cast iron holder for coreless Japanese style incense or cones, or use the small holes at both ends to hold Indian style incense on bamboo cores. The large size is large enough for regular 10 inch long incense sticks. The surface has a beautiful concentric rings design. This is my pick for best incense holder / burner. The design is beautiful, elegant, and minimal. This Japanese incense burner embodies the best of Japanese design.

Nippon Kodo Rocking Tray – Cast Iron Incense Holder

A close runner up, this conical incense burner is best suited for the shorter Japanese style incense sticks and incense cones.

It makes an elegant companion to the large Bamboo Leaf incense burner above. This one is also embellished with a concentric circle design on the outside. The moveable cast iron holder can be placed on the bottom surface, and the holder will rock if you give it a gentle push – but is stable and unmoving while the incense is burning. Another beautiful incense holder from Japan.
