Description

Help conserve forests, reduce landfill and save on heating costs by converting your old newspapers, junk mail, shredded paper, cardboard, wood chippings and wrapping paper into fuel.

The perfect way to recycle newspapers and save money. Simply soak your old newspapers in water, fill the Paper Log Maker then press down the handles to squeeze out excess moisture. Then leave to dry and the newspaper briquettes will burn steadily for up to 2 hours depending on contents and are non-toxic.

Alternatively, the newspaper briquettes burn easily and leave a minimum amount of ash, so why not replace it with your charcoal this summer as a source of BBQ fuel.

  • Creates logs up to 22cm long x 8cm wide x 10cm deep
  • Steel press for recycling paper into slow burning "briquettes"
  • Stock up in the summer for winter stove burning
  • When dry the “briquettes” will burn steadily for up to 2 hours, with no toxic fumes and minimal ash
  • Can also be used as a fuel for outdoor cooking
  • Coated steel press, with removable insert and instructions

Pros: easy to use
Cons: need space, for soaking paper etc, briquettes hard to eject from maker, take forever to dry out

Have made a few, but not dry enough to try burning them on our log burner yet - am hoping they will work! We see this as a summer job, as they arent drying out at all well at this time of year. Can be hard to get the made brick out of the former, and we have found you can get more moisture out if you stand on them afterwards!!

This contraption is very sturdy and easy to use. I have only been using newspapers to make the briquettes, as I find it to release the least smoke when burning. It takes a whole newspaper to make up one briquette, so you need quite a lot if you intend to rely on this to fuel a wood burner. I haven't yet tried to burn a briquette, so cannot comment on the burning time, I worked out that one month worth of newspapers converted into briquettes would easily cover the cost of the log maker. I'd say that a good investment, for my wallet and for the planet.

There are 3 Questions | 3 Answers for this product
Q: How easy is it to to use a Paper Log / Briquette Maker? 1 answer
A: Simple and easy to use. Firstly soak the newspapers, junk mail or cardboard in water. A bucket or water butt is useful for this. Try to get into the habit of adding unwanted paper to it so you will eventually have a constant supply of logs. Once they have become mushy, lift them out and place into the log maker until they are level with the top. Place the press over the paper and then press down the handles to squeeze out any excess moisture. Open the log maker and remove the paper log for drying. A rack in a shed or garage is ideal for this. Once dried the logs will burn steadily for up to two hours on an open fire

Q: How much could I save using a Paper Log Maker? 1 answer
A: The average UK household receives significant junk mail and envelopes through their letterbox each week which could be converted into paper logs for free heating. When you combine this with the used newspapers and magazines most households discard, it is estimated each household could recycle this waste to make at least five paper logs per week. This would give around ten hours burn time which could result in a significant saving to your heating bills
