About the Saltfire Peanut 3

Saltfire Peanut 3

The Peanut 3 shares the contemporary design of the rest of the Peanut range and is the smallest in the family. As with the other Peanuts it is made of cast iron and is durable and long-lasting - all wrapped up in a compact body that could well give the Salamander Hobbit a run for its money.

As with all Peanut stoves this model has Fast Flame technology - lighting and re-lighting fires just got a load easier.

Peanut Fast Flame

EAll Peanut stoves have Fast Flame to make re-lighting a small bed of embers easy peasy.

Julian's thoughts

Saltfire Peanut stoves are the fastest selling stoves we have ever launched and deservedly so. Cast iron and contemporary - love it. Fast Flame is just great.

Saltfire Peanut 5 Wood Burning Stove
Great Service
Thanks for the review :-) The ventral area of the floor pan does indeed need clearing of ash regularly (I do it before each new lighting) although it is just a few minutes of work. The benefits of the 'fast light' system, to me, far exceed this minor hassle. The ash pan could be bigger but to be honest it really hardly gets much in it as the ash tends to stay in the firebox and is easy to remove. This design is different to many other stoves but again I say... Fast flame is awesome and a small focused air intake area is necessary for this to work. Julian

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.


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: 550mm
Distance to combustibles REAR: 150mm

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.

WHY YOU NEED OUR Exceptional guarantee (6-months even if stove used)

What if I get a lemon? What if I'm unhappy when I unwrap it? What if it does not agree with my chimney?
Chimney and stove not agreeing with each other? Although rare it really does happen and it is usually cured by swapping the stove for another. Why? Who knows? We have had a few stoves that "whistled". When we swapped the stove the problem stopped but when we put the stoves on a different chimney they do not whistle. We have had a few stoves that let smoke into the room when refuelling - swap the stove and the problem is cured. Test the stove on a different chimney and all is well.
Most retailers will not replace or refund if it is a problem with the chimney. You will have to sell your stove yourself (at a great loss as stove second-hand value is very poor) and purchase another.
If your stove's retail price is under £1500: 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.
