Our kiln-dried Oak firewood, the uncontested powerhouse of wood fuels, is now available in plastic-free cardboard packaging, so you can enjoy all the benefits of a long, bright, and powerful burn with a clear conscience.
For lovers of authentic, leopard-spotted pizza, kiln-dried oak is the absolute best type of firewood to use in a pizza oven, as it is commonly used as the primary wood fuel for pizza ovens in Italian pizzerias. This is because oak is one of the densest firewoods on the market, burning slowly and at a high temperature with very little smoke.
The long and sustained burn is the perfect match for your pizza oven!

Why Choose Kiln Dried Oak Firewood?
High Heat Output: Made from premium oak, these logs have a higher calorific value than most other types of firewood, which allows them to generate more heat with fewer logs. This makes them perfect for pizza ovens and warming your home on cold days.
Long Burn Times: Thanks to their high density, oak logs can burn for as long as 3 hours. Which is better than most other types of firewood and on par with some briquette products.
Incredibly Versatile: Firewood is the most versatile wood fuel out there. Our logs will work well with every fire-burning appliance, from wood-burning stoves to pizza ovens, fire pits, and open fires.
Eco-Friendly, Plastic-Free Packaging: The logs will be delivered to you in easy-to-store, eco-friendly packaging, which is stackable, reusable, and makes for excellent tinder at the end of its lifecycle.
To ensure optimal performance, Lekto products must be stored in a dry place.
1.Open your air controls. Set the air controls of your wood-burning stove or chimney to their most open position.
2. Add fire starting material. Arrange your kindling in a criss-cross formation. Put a firelighter at the centre of the formation.
3. Start the fire. Light the firelighter and wait for the kindling to catch fire.
4. Add logs. Once the kindling is burning nicely, you can add the first logs. Place them at a vertical angle with enough room for air to pass through between them.
5. Reduce the airflow. Once the logs are burning, slightly reduce the air intake. This will help the logs burn longer and hotter..
