Juup stoves – made from durable materials with Finnish handicrafts

Finnish, hand-made artisan stoves that offer versatile löylys.

Juup Iivari

9-18 m³

Compact stove for longer löylys

Juup Iivari is the next generation of Juup Original, born of the real need and feedback from of our customers. Juup Iivari is very similar in structure to its predecessor, but it is also suitable for smaller sauna rooms (9–18m³).

Like the Original, Iivari offers versatile löylys and is robust, thus serving its users for decades.

Iivari has two models, Iivari and Iivari Punos (= Plait).

Thanks to their solid and durable construction, the stoves carry a 10 year warranty in home use.

Juup Original

14-30+ m³

Durability and versatile löylys

Juup Original is the father of all our stoves, offering versatile löylys, a new way of heating wood-burning sauna stoves, as well as enjoyable sauna experiences for decades to come.

Juup Original is built from high quality materials that guarantee its long lifespan. Each stove is finished by hand, ensuring the quality we promise.

The easy-to-use CE-marked* stove heats up quickly, using less wood than traditional wood-burning stoves.

However, the biggest secret of this stove lies in its ability to offer its user exactly the kind of löyly they like. By pouring water on different areas of the stone nest, you can enjoy either hotter and sharper löyly all the way to soft, humid löyly.

Thanks to their solid and durable construction, the stoves carry a 10 year warranty in home use.

* Type tested according to EN 15821: 2010. Test facility identification number NB 2450.

Each Juup stove is handcrafted in Loimaa, Finland. The Juup stove is the perfect choice for both a summer cottage and a home sauna. Our stoves not only heat the sauna stones, but the entire sauna room with a comfortable, even heat.

Juup stoves offer a very versatile löylys, so you’re always able to create a sauna experience to your liking.

Our stoves are dimensioned for sauna rooms of different sizes. The smaller Juup Iivari is best suited for 9–18 m³ sauna rooms, and the larger Juup Original effectively heats even large 14–30 + m³ sauna rooms.

Customer feedback

Versatile löylys

We wanted to develop a stove that provides the best and most versatile steam. We have taken the long, moist, and soft steam of a smoke sauna as our model.

The ‘secret’ of the steam in smoke saunas lies in the way the stones are heated. The stones at the bottom get incredibly hot, while the surface stones remain relatively lukewarm throughout the sauna session. When water is poured onto the stones, it doesn’t evaporate immediately from the surface stones, but flows down to the bottom of the stone compartment where evaporation occurs. As this steam travels through the cooler stones, a condensation process begins which softens and moistens the steam.

In Juup stoves, the stones are directly above the firebox in a “stone bowl.” This allows the stones to heat up quickly and every drop of water to evaporate into the sauna. The stones at the bottom heat up first and remain hot throughout the sauna session, just like in a smoke sauna.

The stones on the surface of the stone bowl heat up slowly, allowing for the creation of different types of steam during the sauna session. The water that doesn’t evaporate upon contact with the hot stones flows down to the bottom of the bowl and evaporates gradually. This results in soft, moist and long-lasting löyly.

By adjusting the stove’s temperature and the amount of water, you can create exactly the kind of steam that you like. Crisp steam is created when you throw small amounts of water onto the hot stones on the edges frequently. If you prefer soft and moist steam, you can pour a larger amount of water on the lukewarm stones. This creates a steam bath-like löyly.

Fast and economical

Juup stoves challenge the operating model of traditional wood-burning stoves. Our stoves are designed primarily to heat the sauna room and secondarily the stone nest. When the sauna room warms up throughout, your toes do not freeze, even if the stone nest is above your feet.

Utilizing thermodynamics, the stove cycles the cold sauna room air between the mantle and the fireplace, from the bottom of the stove. This air heats up inside the stove and blows out hot from the top of the stove. Thanks to this, the temperature of the sauna rises steadily and quickly.

In a large combustion chamber, the wood burns clean and hot, with minimal emissions. This is best seen in the fact that there is little smoke coming from the chimney after the ignition phase, only hot air vibrating.


Se kaikkein rentouttavin hetki, jonka suomalainen voi kokea

Me Juupilla halusimme löytää termin, joka kuvailisi tuota hetkeä. Sitä tunnetta, jonka jokainen suomalainen tietää ja on kokenut. Se hetki, kun astut pitkän päivän jälkeen saunaan ja jätät kaikki huolet taaksesi, etkä ole enää ulkopuolisen maailman tavoitettavissa. Irtaudut täydellisesti elektroniikan täyttämästä arjesta ja olet täysin läsnä. Se hetki, kun ensimmäisen löylyn sihahdus kaikuu saunahuoneessa ja lämpöinen höyry syleilee vartaloasi. Tämä on se hetki, kun kaikki on hyvin. Tämä on The Finnish moment®.

Juup-kiukaat ovat kunnianosoitus tälle hetkelle ja tunteelle. Kiukaamme ovat suomalaisia saunainnovaatioita, jotka ovat saunaentusiastien suunnittelemia, kehittämiä sekä rakentamia – jo kolmessa sukupolvessa.


The frame of the stoves and the fireplace are made of 3 mm carbon steel and the fireplace has only one weld seam. This allows the stove to last from one generation to the next. The original stoves, built by Gösta Juup in the 1950s, are still in use.

Thanks to their solid and durable construction, we grant our stoves a 10-year warranty in home use.
