The humidity, lower than 8%, allows the oven to reach the perfect temperature in less time, its efficient combustion reducing the emissions of carbon monoxide to the atmosphere and the soot in the chimney. The octagonal section ensures easy handling and stability by avoiding rolling in the oven. For the same weight and size it far exceeds the best traditional wood in terms of yield, thus making it very convenient and economical. Its high radiant power is ideal for cooking in refractory ovens because it generates heat not only by convection, but also by radiation. This difference in the balance of convective and radiant heat gives far greater yield that traditional wood logs, and maintains a constant temperature for longer. Storage is simplified, with each 18Kg box containing 8 briquettes, which are easy to store and to stack and maintain a clean environment under the oven.
But what are the concrete advantages ?
the stabilization of humidity below 8%, represents a fundamental characteristic of Faggetto, which makes it different from traditional wood which usually has a much higher humidity rate, around 23%. Thanks to this peculiarity, the beech guarantees optimal and constant cooking, without the risk of sudden changes in temperature or excessive smoke development. Furthermore, the high calorific value of the beech allows you to reach the ideal temperature quickly and keep it constant for the entire duration of cooking, thus allowing you to obtain perfectly cooked and crunchy pizzas and other foods.
Hygiene is essential to ensure maximum safety in the preparation of pizzas. Thanks to our drying chain, il Faggetto briquettes are free of bark and all the debris that can compromise the cleanliness of the working environment and the safety of the placer’s hands. This means that you will be able to prepare your pizzas in a hygienic and clean environment, without having to worry about dirt, moss or other debris that could be present in traditional wood. Furthermore, the bacteriological analyzes conducted on our briquettes guarantee maximum safety in cooking food. Choosing il Faggetto briquettes means making a responsible and ecological choice, without having to give up quality and hygiene in the preparation of your pizzas.

With our beechwood briquette, you can enjoy your favourite pizzas knowing you’re making the right choice for your kitchen and for our planet.
Il Faggetto can be broken into pieces so only the amount of fuel necessary is added to the oven. Because of this, il Faggetto is suited to ovens of all sizes, the addition of fuel can be carefully metered to meet the needs at the time.
Thanks to these aspects, the briquette guarantees optimal and constant cooking, without the risk of sudden changes in temperature or excessive smoke development, typical of wood logs.
Choosing il Faggetto therefore means making a concrete gesture for the environment, while saving on energy costs.
