Great service/great stove

Looked around for ages and then found the Stovefitter’s Warehouse website. Really useful information and actually had a good range of stoves in stock. Rang up and spoke to one of the team who gave really honest advice about the pros and cons of the stoves I was considering. All we then had to do was confirm that the stove was right for our room with the fitter, placed the order and the stove arrived within days. Really great service and love the text message you receive if they are unable to answer your call. Bignut 5 stove now fitted and we love it!!

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.

Description

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.

Specifications

Output & Fuel

Wood-only (can only burn wood)
Nominal 5kW. Max. 6kW

This stove will run happily at 2kW - 6kW depending on fuel load. Note that running the stove at a higher fuel level than that specified in the manufacturer's manual may cause degradation of stove innards (firebricks, baffle etc.) although these are replaceable (and repairable with beige fire cement).

What size stove do I need?


Eco Credentials

This stove meets and exceeds the new 2022 Ecodesign regulations

This stove is approved by DEFRA to burn wood in a Smoke Control Area


Efficiency

80% (as a rough guide 80% of heat goes to the room with 18% going up the chimney).

Don't overthink efficiency. 75%-85% is fine and 90%+ efficiency may not work so well on shorter or difficult chimneys.


External Air

No, this stove cannot be fitted with an external air kit (draws air from outside via pipe direct to stove). Usually this option is not relevant unless a room air-vent is required and the property is airtight (by design or choice).

Air vent advice here


Body & 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

Hearth thickness: minimum 12mm non-combustible material (can include floor thickness).

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.

Delivery Promise

We offer 14 days from delivery to report any courier damage to your stove. If a stove is damaged by the courier we will replace or refund as desired.

Guarantee

Manufacturer's Guarantee

The manufacturer offers a 5 year body guarantee

Glass

Why do we sell glass insurance (pre-ticked box close to ADD TO CART button)? Because glass is classed, in the stoves industry, as a consumable item and not covered under ANY guarantee by any manufacture for any reason whatsoever. If it breaks or cracks on day one or day twenty it is not covered. If the inside of the glass goes cloudy or gets any kind of surface coating or etching then it is not covered (it will be to do with what you are burning according to manufacturers and glass makers). Glass usually costs £30-£60 plus postage but can be more on higher end models.

Performance

Defra-approved or/and Ecodesign stoves are designed and thoroughly tested before being allowed onto the market and every stove sold is identical. In the rare event a stove does not perform as well as expected it is always down to the installation, the chimney or circumstances unique to the property (pressure imbalances caused by local conditions, down drafts etc.). Here at Stovefitter's we have taken stoves back on a number of occasions for testing on our chimney and in every situation the stoves performed as expected (we may of course find a faulty stove one day but never as yet). We may, at our discretion, take a stove back once it has been used and in this situation a 50% refund would be provided (stove would be sold as second hand). We would, however, offer a 33% refund on a replacement stove.
