A typical censer is a small metal or stone dish used for burning incense, often on small legs.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, censers are similar in design to the Western thurible, often with the addition of small bells.
Censers made for stick incense are also available; these are simply a long, thin plate of wood, metal, or ceramic, bent up and perforated at one end to hold the incense.

This, according to its etymology, indicated a censer which was among the appointments of the Temple required for the performance of holy offices.
In the English version it is rendered thirteen times as "censer," four times as "fire-pan," three times as "snuff-dishes," and once as "snuffer." Derived from the root "ḥatah" (to gather together coal or ashes), it was probably the name of various contrivances intended to remove the ashes or to carry live coals.
But this does not weaken the evidence of the documents to the effect that in post-exilic periods censers were not proper utensils for the burning of incense.

The being is trapped within the censer as long as it remains closed and activated; i.e., the user cannot refill the censer or put it away, and when the incense is used up, the being will be set free.

Metal and ceramic censers are known in China from the Eastern Zhou period (770-221 BC).
The use of incense in China may have been stimulated by contact and exchange with non-Chinese people on the southern borders of Siberia, who were known to have inhaled narcotics from basins in which hot stones were placed.
Censers were probably used in state rituals, funerals, the cult of immortals, and the enhancement of daily life and for more mundane tasks like masking unpleasant odors.
