At Fandango Fire Tools we’re very excited. That’s because we’ve brought the Kindling Cracker™ to the UK.
The Kindling Cracker is the patented, cast iron, Australian made wood splitter. Users love that it is safe and easy to use.
It was invented by New Zealand schoolgirl Ayla almost 10 years ago. We're very proud to help spread her story around Europe.
We started selling the Kindling Cracker in the UK in November 2021. This was after huge success in mainland Europe. We’ve been selling over 50,000+ per year there for the last five years.
We’re delighted with the reception in GB. We've sold over 6,500 in the UK since we opened our Manchester warehouse. Customers seem to love their Kindling Crackers!
There has been an increase in homeowners looking to wood as a fuel source. The outdoor living boom means more gardens have fire pits, pizza ovens, wood fired hot tubs and grills. Rising energy prices have seen more homeowners install log burners indoors.
There are more applications for firewood in the UK home than ever before.
In May 2021 the legislation around the moisture content of firewood that can be sold changed. Homeowners should be aware of the legislative changes. The sale of wet wood (where moisture content is over 20%) was banned.
Fuel that isn’t dried is particularly bad for the environment. Burning dry wood is far less polluting. Less nasty particulate matter is released into the atmosphere.
Oh, and it takes a lot of thermal energy to boil off the moisture in wood – energy that could be heating your home!
The Kindling Cracker lets you prepare this wood at home. Safe. Easy. Smart.
