SMALL STOVE REVIEW: Salamander – The Hobbit

SMALL STOVE REVIEW: Salamander – The Hobbit

Salamander stoves out of the UK make beautiful cast iron multi-fuel stoves for a variety of small spaces. The hobbit is a miniature version of large full-size cast stoves and is perfect for small spaces. Of all the small wood stoves – I like the look of the Hobbit the best. While these stoves are made in the UK they can be imported.

Notes: You can optionally get 1 or 2 colors for these small stoves and it looks like they have lots of color combinations. One SWEET feature in the Hobbit is an optional boiler ($150). The boiler is a stainless steel bladder that sits inside the fire box that can be used to heat water and an optional radiator for more efficient heating.






If you are considering a Hobbit and live in the US or Canada there is a brand new North American Dealer for quicker turnaround time, cheaper shipping and great customer service! A website is in the works but you can contact them directly at:
