About the Saltfire Peanut Bignut 5

 

Like all other Peanut stoves, the Bignut is made of cast-iron and 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 the biggest seller of the range. The canny amongst you may have noticed that the Bignut is the same size as the Peanut 8 - fatter firebricks inside allow the stove to be sold as a "nominal 5kW", thus avoiding, in most properties, the need for an air vent in the room.

The Bignut has an impressive 80.1% efficiency rating and is, as the name suggests, big.

Fast Flame

The Peanut's "Fast Flame" technology - for easy lighting.

Control

Three air levers for maximum control.

Output & fuel

Multifuel (wood, coal & smokeless fuel)
Nominal 5kW
Max. 5.77kW

This stove will run happily at 2-6kW depending on fuel load.

External air NO

No, this stove cannot be fitted with an external air kit. Usually this option is not relevant unless an air vent is required and the property owners are aiming for an airtight space.

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

This 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.

Distances & heat shield advice

Technical info pages  and manual (distance to combustible materials and non-combustible materials on page 84/85 of Installation manual).

Julian's thoughts

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.

Top favourite without a doubt.

Buying online is a little disconcerting for some. What if I get a lemon? What if I'm happy when I unwrap it?
 
If your stove's retail price is under £1300: Should you not be happy with your stove for any reason, within the first three months from purchase, we will arrange to have the stove collected from your premises (we pay first £48 delivery collection cost, covers most UK postcodes, you pay additional in rare situation cost rises above £48 for any reason). Stove installed and has been used? No worry. We will pay you up to £100 to have it removed by a Hetas registered installer.
 
As soon as the stove is back with us we will provide a FULL REFUND of the cost of the stove. We will even post you a pallet and straps as required (you will need to prepare it ready for our driver). This exceptional guarantee lasts for a full three months from date of delivery EVEN IF THE STOVE IS USED as long as normal wear and tear.
 
Between three and six months, we offer exactly the same but without the £100 stove-removal offer.
 
On this, you have my word.

Saltfire Peanut 5

I had absolutely no knowledge of Log-burners but wanted one for my newly decorated lounge. The internet took me to this companies website and I was impressed with the depth of information and the quality and price of the products available.

Ordering was easy and the product delivered exactly on the day specified. Our HETAS engineer installed the product and also commented on the quality of the burner for the price.

Delighted with the purchase. Would definitely use stovefitterswarehouse again
