Moisture meters are an essential piece of kit for getting the best out of your Chilli Penguin stove. They are a simple and quick way to check the moisture in your logs so you know whether they are ready to give you a safe and efficient burn or need further seasoning time.
The screen will glow green if your fuel contains less than 15% moisture, indicating that it’s ready to go.
Amber means the wood has less than 20% moisture and is OK to burn but would be all the better for allowing a little more drying time.
The screen will show red if the moisture level is over 20%. Put the wood aside to season for a few months. Not only will it then burn more efficiently, giving more heat, but it won’t cause damage to the inside of your stove like damp wood might.
2 AAA batteries are required & not included.
