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 wood burning 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.
Cast iron stoves take a little longer to get hot but retain heat longer as the fire dies down. 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.
Ecodesign-Ready and can be used in smoke control areas as well.

Stove Fitters Warehouse listened to what we wanted and the parameters of our project, our desire to keep an existing fireplace for example.
They were very helpful in suggesting different stoves that would suit, and explained the benefits and relative comparisons of each. They made sure they understood all other aspects of the project to ensure they advised and quoted for the correct accessories.
Communication was excellent and timely, we opted to collect our stove and it all was very straightforward.
Many thanks, we are very pleased with our stove and the help received is priceless.
I purchased a stove for my living room last autumn and love it. I wanted another one in a smaller downstairs room so I started doing my research. I already found the Stovefitter's Warehouse (SW) web page helpful in terms of guidance and I found myself there again. It had a handy guide for smaller stoves and I liked the look of the cast iron Peanut 5 Tall which also had an amazing review. Lucky for me the price on offer at the SW was less than everywhere else so it was an easy decision. The stove was delivered on the date I chose with no issues. It is as good as the pictures, very well made and so I am very happy with the purchase and overall service from the SW. They even threw in a free fireproof mit which was a nice touch. I would definitely use them again.
We installed our stove around a month ago and absolutely love it. Delivery was smooth and fast. The appearance of it would fit in with a range of styles, the large glass screen is lovely and the performance of it overall is brilliant. Kicks out such a good heat! Highly recommend.
