About the Saltfire Peanut 5

Imagine for a moment that it is deepest mid-winter, Game of Thrones style. You are sofa-deep in your newspaper, book, or magazine (or more likely the latest video box-set). You lay down your reading material (or reach for the remote) and head off to replenish your drink/grab a sandwich/take a moment. On your return, you notice that the fire is almost out. You frown. Kindling, firelighters, small logs, a bigger log or two on top. Not that all over again?
 
We have all been there. It's a chore. We enjoy lighting the fire - but once is enough.
 
But owners of Peanut 5 stoves chuckle to themselves. A few red embers left? A derisory smouldering? No worries - the Peanut 5 multifuel stove will deal with it.
 
Who needs kindling? Just add your logs and open the Saltfire Peanut 5's Primary air control: this concentrates airflow within a small square at the centre of the stove's base and is very powerful indeed: a wannabee fantastical flame-thrower. As long as you have just a few small red embers to work with, your logs will light, and at speed.
 
And that is just one of the reasons why we love the Saltfire Peanut 5 stove.
 
Not just that, of course. Finally, a contemporary stove range manufactured in cast iron. Here at Stovefitter's, this makes us very, very happy. There are examples of cast-iron stoves till going strong after a hundred years of use so well done Saltfire for such an innovative range of Peanut stoves - and Ecodesign-Ready and can be used in smoke control areas as well.

Air vent advice here

Body and door

Cast-iron stove (5-year body guarantee) with cast-iron door.

What to buy steel or cast-iron? Do not overthink. Steel heats fast. Cast-iron takes a little longer but retains heat longer as fire dies.

Hearth

The Saltfire Peanut 5 stove can, if sited outside of a fireplace recess, be sited on a 12mm thick hearth.

If in a fireplace recess, a full 125mm thickness constructional hearth is required. This will usually be in place as part of the recess design.

Hearth regulation advice here

Air gaps

Distance to combustibles SIDE: 450mm
Distance to combustibles REAR: 400mm

To non-combustibles there are no hard rules but, around the stove, a 50mm minimum air gap is recommended to brick/stone. This to be increased to 100mm for rendered or boarded surfaces. Prior to purchasing any stove download the installation manual to check that manufacturers do not have any additional requirements.

The best-selling stove of the autumn/winter 2019 - to the point that UK stores ran out of stock.

Love the fact they are cast-iron yet contemporary in design.

Love the "Fast Flame" feature.
