Cooking On Our Extended Hotplate.

Cooking on our Extended Hotplate is an absolute joy! We have released this new stove option which is available now, in the stove extras area of our website. Our new Extended Hotplate has been specifically designed for both of our small wood burning stoves – it sits neatly on top of the standard Hobbit stove or the Hobbit SE. This option significantly increases the size of your stovetop, making it even easier to cook on your tiny wood burner.

Salamander Stoves Extended Hotplate For The Hobbit Small Wood Burning Stove 1

Exiting from the back of our small wood burning stove with a rear flue wedge will provide you with more space for cooking on your small wood stove.

The Extended Hotplate is a durable cast iron piece that adds 7kg of thermal mass to your Hobbit stove, whilst still being easily removable. You can choose to add the hotplate to your small stove as and when it’s needed – simply place the hotplate on top of your tiny wood burner when you’re ready to get stuck into some fire-powered off-grid cooking!

You will also benefit from more heat being radiated into the room, which will help you beat the energy price rises. As your small wood burning stove heats up, the hotplate will get very hot! Get the most out of your tiny wood burner by using the heat of your fire to boil some water in a beautiful Alessi stovetop kettle, and our Extended Hotplate can withstand any Le Creuset pan you decide to throw at it.

Cooking on our Extended Hotplate is easy, as it enables you to use a variety of cookware items all at the same time. Customising your small stove with this option will transform the cooking potential of your tiny wood burner, allowing you to add new elements to your dishes, and ultimately enabling you to cook a greater variety of meals. You can find plenty of inspiration in our free small stove cookbook.

Cooking on our Extended Hotplate will even provide you with some of the benefits of our stove cooking range. The hotplate option is particularly useful if you don’t have the space required for our Little Range Cook Stove, for example, if you are looking to install a small stove into a vehicle or an RV, a tiny home on wheels, a horsebox conversion, a caravan, or a canal boat.

Take it to the next level by customising your stove with our black or grey cast iron enamelled cookware set, our cast iron enamel griddle pan, and our T1000 small stove toasting fork!

If you are wondering how you might be able to incorporate our small stove into the design of your project alongside this option, then our Extended Hotplate measures approximately 50cm in length, 27.5cm in width and 2.5cm in depth.

We also have a number of useful documents in our help section that will show you the dimensions of the Hobbit stove and the Hobbit SE, as well as a diagram that illustrates how much space each flue position takes up.

This option can be added to your small wood burning stove by selecting the relevant checkbox in the stove options section when you go to purchase your Hobbit stove or Hobbit SE. Alternatively, you can also find it in the stove extras area of our website, where it can be added to your shopping cart.

Any orders for our Extended Hotplate will be sent with next-day delivery. Cook your dinner and make a cup of tea in the knowledge that you won’t be spending a penny on sky-high gas and electricity prices! If you have any questions about cooking on our Extended Hotplate, then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our Hobbit Stove Has Been Fitted!

"We had a Hobbit stove fitted this week by Alex Reay from Flues and Fires, and I just wanted to get in touch to say it is AMAZING and we love it! We have a lovely cast iron tiled fireplace which I was desperate not to lose when we installed a small wood burning stove, but until I found the Hobbit on Google, everyone told me it would be impossible to keep the fire surround. The Hobbit is perfect - not only does it fit very snugly, but it looks fantastic and the blue door complements the tiles very nicely. We are sitting enjoying a fire now and absolutely loving it! Thanks for creating such an amazing product."

The Best Stove Ever!

"It’s the best stove ever! It’s easy to light, very efficient, burns anthracite and stays in overnight (ours has been in for three weeks now). It even keeps a kettle of water at the ready for a cuppa! What more can I say, we love it! Just the thing to make our Yorkshire home cosy, and the cat loves it too!"

First Small Stove Installation

Was looking for a small stove for my first self-install. Found Mark very helpful. Knowledgeable, friendly service. Stove burns well and generates lots more heat than the previous open fire. What is not to like?

A Huge Thank You!

"Dear Mark and Gill, a huge thank you for designing and making the Hobbit stove! We had two different London-based fireplace companies tell us that we simply had to knock out the old cast iron and tile fireplace to fit in a woodburning stove, and that there was no other option! Then we found you online. We are delighted with our little Hobbit, which swallows up logs and kicks out a good amount of heat. Perfect for the winter! I will also be writing to the London-based fireplace companies to put the Hobbit on their radar. Best wishes."

It's Brilliant!

"Hi Mark, here's a photo of the Hobbit installed in my Yorkist grate. It’s brilliant! It also throws out a lot more heat than the grate did."

The Little Hobbit Has Stepped Up To The Challenge!

"We just wanted to say how impressed and how much of a life saver our little Hobbit has been! It was fitted a few months ago in our holiday home in Rhu, Scotland, which is a large open plan conversion in a Victorian house. This weekend our boiler decided it was not going to play ball. The little Hobbit has stepped up to the challenge, providing heat to a very large area, about twenty eight foot by twenty four foot with a high ceiling of about eighteen foot, keeping the room reasonably warm, warm enough for us not to use cardigans!”

Very Pleased With Our Hobbit!

"We are very pleased with the stove and think it looks great! We restored our fireplace (it was hidden under plaster!) and the whole look is better than we hoped!"

Our Pride And Joy!

"What a fantastic fireplace with the beautiful Hobbit stove. It fits perfectly into the small space and throws out a lot of heat. Here's a photo of our little stove, now our pride and joy and much admired by all who see and feel the warmth."

"Just to bid you all a Happy New Year and to say how much we’re enjoying having our Hobbit stove! It was easy to fit with the help of your excellent ‘how to’ videos and we’re just awaiting our inspection by building control for the certification. The Hobbit has fitted neatly into the hearth vacated by the old gas back boiler (with a little cosmetic rendering) and never ceases to surprise us how much heat it can deliver to the point that the new condenser boiler is having an easy life, thereby saving us on gas bills too! Everyone loves having a ‘real fire’ in the living room."
