Peanut 3 Tall

A great little wood burner that really sets the standards for ultra low emissions and exceptional value... 

If you're looking for a wood burner that will have the minimum impact on your local air quality then the Peanut 3 or its variant with the store stand, the Peanut 3 Tall, are definitely ones to consider The Peanut 3 is amongst only a handful of stoves to have attained the tough ClearSkies Level 5 for its ultra low emissions – most of the others costing significantly more money too. Even if you just want a great looking stove that represents excellent value for money then this is one stove that should be at the very top of your list. If only for its bigger than average window. But there's much more to the Peanut 3 Tall than that.

For starters it features all-cast iron construction – not just the door and the lid, but the bodywork and firebricks. Not only should this stove last well beyond the manufacturer's five year warranty but it will also create a considerable sized heat sink to provide you with long lasting slow release heat long after it's gone out. Something to consider if you're going to install it in a log cabin, shepherds hut or yurt which are known to quickly dissipate heat during the night. The Peanut 3's top or rear fitted 100mm (4") diameter flue also makes it a great choice for these types of buildings, which are usually single storey, and where the usual minimum 4.5 metre tall flue system can be both impractical and costly to build.

The Peanut 3 Tall features Saltfire's unique Fast Flame quick start lighting system which makes it very easy to start the stove and this, combined with not just two, but three combustion air controls, also provides you with maximum control over the 2.0kW to 5.0kW heat output range and fuel efficiency. It has an excellent A+ rated efficiency of 82.7% – which is just about as good as it gets for a 2022 Ecodesign Ready stove. Not only that the Peanut 3 Tall is also Defra approved for burning logs in UK urban areas.

Practical options include a stainless steel cooking / hot plate with stainless steel Fiddle rail.
