Vermiculite fire bricks are great for cooking authentic, savoury meals. They are used for insulation purposes and allow your stove to burn efficiently. They also work as a heat barrier to protect the walls of your steel stove. Better yet, you can cut them into any shape and size to fit your stove. 

If you’re shopping for Vermiculite bricks, consider this set of 4. With the Voyto Premium Firebrick set, you will enjoy an easy cooking experience. They are designed for fireplaces, stoves, fire pits, pizza ovens, and more! Read on to learn more about this set of clay fire bricks.

 

Who Is This Fire Brick For?

This set of bricks is made from pressed ceramic particles and high-temperature vermiculite. They’re a great option for anyone looking for a low-duty firebrick option. The Voyto Premium Firebrick Set does a nice job reflecting heat back into the fire. This means your oven will remain at high temperatures for a longer period of time. They also protect the walls of your stove by not allowing them to get too hot. 

 

Specifications

Weight: Each brick weighs 1.5Kg.

Dimensions: Every brick has a size of 230 x 114 x 25mm. 

 

What Separates this Fire Brick From Others?

Vermiculite fire bricks are capable of withstanding high temperatures. Voyto offers premium options that will last you a long time. Of course, with time and use, they will eventually perish, and when they do, you can recycle them by using their remains in your garden.  

This is especially great for individuals who use their fire brick oven outdoors. It will degrade nicely into the soil of your garden, leading to higher water retention and nutrients. This will result in healthier, more sturdy plants, hence adding to the appeal of your outdoor space. 

Moreover, these bricks prevent flames from going everywhere and damaging your appliance. To make them last longer, don’t overfill your stove with them or allow your vermiculite bricks to absorb moisture. If you’re cleaning the inside of your stove, make sure you don’t use a water-based cleaning agent.

Our Verdict

One downfall of these bricks is they’re a bit more fragile than others. While a hairline crack in a Vermiculite fire brick will not damage your stove, if the crack causes the brick to fall or it’s big enough you can see the steel body of your stove, you’ll need to replace it. If you need something that will withstand physical shock, consider regular firebricks. 

 

All in all, I would highly recommend these firebricks since they’re lightweight, offer great insulating qualities, and can be later recycled into the soil of your garden.
