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.

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

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.

Distances & heat shield advice

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

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.

  • Delivery promise (14 days to report any damage)
  • Exceptional six-months guarantee (even if stove used)
  • Price match
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 tripped across the Stovefitters website and used it as a source of information whilst hunting for a stove because the site was well written, ‘friendly’, and with good quality information that I couldn’t find elsewhere. Although at the other end of the country to me, I wanted to replay their effort so I ordered the Peanut 5 stove from them, which was a great price (included delivery) and it arrived exactly as stated.

I am VERY pleased with it - it's a super looking little stove and I really can’t recommend 'Stove Fitters' more highly.

Wood burning stove

We are very pleased with our new wood burning stove. Delivery was quick and efficient, it was left by ourselves in a porch for 2 days and pleased that it was bone dry beneath the packaging. The stove looks lovely and is a great addition to the room. It burns very well and gives off plenty of heat. It has given a lovely welcoming family feel to our new dining room.
