Fandango Fire Tools introduce new Scandinavian outdoor living products


In 2023, Espegard’s range of fire pits and outdoor living accessories has been added alongside the Kindling Cracker firewood splitter to the offering from Fandango Fire Tools.


For more than three decades, Espegard has been a Norwegian household name, offering an exceptionally high quality range of fire pans, braziers and accessories. In that time, it has become a legacy brand earning a reputation for producing exclusive products that blend the finest materials and functionality to make outdoor life inviting and accessible.


All made in Europe, more than half a million of Espegard’s signature Fire Pan 60 have sold in Norway alone. Fandango Fire Tools had a very busy Glee 2023 and have already supplied existing and new dealers with products that were a hit at the show. This year, they’ve expanded their inspiring range so gardeners, campers and outdoor lovers can stay outside and do more of what they love for longer. Whether it’s. for cooking or a natural heat source, new introductions from Espegard allow everyone to keep warm outside.


This year, joining the traditional line up are new, contemporary fire pits and pans, of which four are designed with – REIN – clean burn technology. 


Customers love the new Fire Pan Pilar 50 and its larger cousin, the Fire Pan Pilar Premium 50 which comes with a handy space for storing logs and a really useful ash drawer for easy cleaning. Contemporary and compact, they are easy to transport to different outdoor places, and like everything in the range, have the option of a protective cover when not in use.


Also new in 2023 is the Fire Pan Rein Premium 60 with fire bowl suspended on a tripod and the Fire Bowl Rein Premium 60 supported by three sturdy legs.


Kindling Cracker – strength to strength

Thanks to the love for a real flame and two hugely successful years selling in the UK, Fandango Fire Tools has now sold over 21,500 Kindling CrackerTM firewood splitters in the UK. This quality and safe-to-use tool has now been added to the outdoor entertaining and wood fuel offering of many garden centres. Stockists onboard include Longacres Garden Centres in the South East, Burford Garden Co in the Cotswolds, Langlands in Yorkshire, Beetham Nurseries in Cumbria, Fire Pits UK, Kadai and groups like Blue Diamond.


With more and more homes and gardens having numerous products that burn wood – the Kindling CrackerTMis the perfect accessory for owners of log burners, fire pits, pizza ovens, grills, hot tubs and saunas. It’s not just in the UK where trade is brisk. Across Europe sales are passing 50,000 units a year and crucially, the Kindling CrackerTM now has a European and UK patent helping to secure its design against inferior copies and give confidence to both retailers and consumers.
