Peanut 5 Bignut - Light your fire, and fast!

Like all other Peanut stoves, the Bignut has the amazing capability of easily igniting full-size logs even after a fire has almost gone out. Just a few small embers left at the base of the stove is enough for the Peanut's flamethrower style primary air system. More info here.

The wonderfully named "Bignut" is a larger version of the standard-sized Peanut 5 and likely, we predict, to be the biggest seller of the range. The Bignut has an impressive 80.1% efficiency rating and is, as the name suggests, big.

Silvacore 5" Flexible 904 liner

Firstly some comments about Stovefitters
- the website is excellent with the guides and information being really helpful and this definitely influenced our decision to buy from them
- would be good if the website had a top level link to buying things as it is currently hidden away in sub menus
- the items were deliverd within days of ordering with excellent communication on progress throughout

With regard to the liner itself:
- yes you may find other liners cheaper elsewhere, but I have found that they are inferior in specification e.g. thickness and material that is why we went for this one
- when it arrived I was pleased that we chose this one as you can see the quality in the liner, it is very tough yet with sufficient flexibility to get it installed
- ftiing it went well, in fact it took about an hour from start to finish, we had perviously swept the chimney and did a trial run with just the nose cone to check the chimney. Then on the day we attached a weigth and rope to the nose cone and then attached the cone to the end of the liner. This was a reasonably sized chimney being 14M long. Luckily we have good access to the chimney so I was able to stand next to it and feed the liner down the chmney while my wife gently pulled the rope at the foot of the chimney to guide it down. We had one sticking point which was realy due to the front part of the liner being curled up slightly as a result of it being in a coil for a number of days. However with some gentle coaxing it soon freed up and the liner was in.
- Performance so far has been great and we get a tremendous airflow so much so that I might fit a damper in the vitreous pipe.
- Would defintely buy again

Pleased with Peanut purchase

We had the Peanut 5 fitted a week ago. It's a solid, sturdy and very heavy stove, looks nice, has a particularly big window, and the door handle closes the fire nicely. The stove seems to burn wood well, leaving little ash. The ash pan is surprisingly small but hasn't had a lot in it at all after the few small fires we've had so far as part of the paint curing and stove tempering process. There is a process that is set out in the instructions for building up the size of fires gradually over set hours and then days, so don't bank on having a big fire immediately. The instructions for this process are pretty clear though. The stove seems to light well and has a satisfying way of really drawing air up through the wood, and when adding extra logs it's almost like turning on a switch to ignite the new log when you open the primary air vent.
My only slight worry so far is that the glass has become cloudy very quickly. I still hope it will clean off but had hoped for a clearer view without too much cleaning because of the airwash system. I may have used the primary airflow for too long, or else it's the wood, though it was definitely dry. Other than that very pleased with the choice. It fits well into the space we have with a reasonable airflow on all sides and above.

Lovely matt finish and large firebox

I asked my colleague Emma to review the Peanut for me as I am remote working in Cornwall... Julian Patrick (MD Stovefitter's). Here is Emma's review: The stove looks great, like really great! I wouldn't of put it in the Saltfire range had I not known. It hasn't got the glossy finish some of the images suggest, it's got a lovely matt finish which makes it look extra stylish. Beautiful big window and great sized firebox (unfortunately It was lit before I could measure it but I will do before I light in the morning.)
It's giving off lots of heat, but you can't turn down to full slumber (slumbering is not good). I'm assuming this is because it's Ecodesign.

The top control (airwash) on the top door is a bit tiny but as a rule that's open all the time anyway to keep the glass nice and clean.

However, I really like the bottom air controls. Easy to use and a nice design.
