Forno1889® Beechwood Pizza Briquettes. 975kg Pallet
Crafted for professional pizza ovens
Forno1889® marries the sustainability of modern high-performance briquettes with the heritage of traditional Neapolitan pizza making.
As the story goes, on arriving in Naples, Queen Margherita of Savoy & King Umberto I invited Rafaele Esposito, Napoli’s most esteemed pizza maker, to prepare dinner. Deeming the traditional garlic topping unfit for royalty, Esposito created a pizza topped simply with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil — the Italian flag's red, white, and green. The year was 1889.
Made from 100% virgin Beechwood, Forno1889® pizza briquettes are our food-grade cooking logs that will reach the required 500-degree Celsius temperature in Neapolitan-style ovens whether cooking in a professional setting or at home. Due to the consistent burning, there has been a particular appeal from professional chefs who need consistent and reliable results every single time.
In our most recent DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 laboratory tests at AH Knight, which often are referred to as Chemical Analysis tests, the Forno1889® briquettes are shown to produce energy output with a gross calorific value of 5.37 kWh/kg. The moisture content ranges between 5.4 – 6.6%, with the ash content 0.5%.
By design, Forno1889® briquettes are octagonal in shape, and one can say they are custom-made for Neapolitan-style cooking where the fuel must be burned on the left side of the oven. The high and consistent temperatures will guarantee consistent and reliable results. This high performance also makes these briquettes suitable for stoves and fire pits, where a great flame and high heat output are important.
The 975kg pallet bundled up account for 65 x 15kg boxes. Each box measures 30cm x 24cm x 24cm and packs 9 octagonal briquettes, each measuring 24cm long and 8cm in diameter.
Finding space and organising an incoming delivery in a busy kitchen may prove to be a challenge, but not with Forno1889® Briquettes, palletised on a stamped EURO pallet and packed in clean to handle cardboard boxes. Storing Forno1889 briquettes in your kitchen can greatly improve the storage requirements due to the compactness of the briquettes compared to traditional firewood. The clean cardboard boxes will add a layer of compliance regarding safe food handling in all food operations. The box requires minimal but weatherproof storage for safe storage. Direct contact with water may result in the total loss of the briquettes or reduced or poor performance.
