After launching the Dwarf line, we knew we wanted to add the functionality of a baking oven; a cookstove is the heart of an off-grid home! Our first two versions of the oven integrated the oven with the flue of the stove, allowing the flue gases to travel around the inner wall, heating the oven. What we found through use in our home and feedback from customers is that diverting flue gases robbed heat from the chimney causing the stove to lag in performance.
We decided to take it back to the drawing board and redesign the oven to keep the stove drafting better with a shorter chimney and slower burns. In testing the latest oven version (3.0) we were able to achieve all of our performance goals! We hit and maintained baking temps of 500F as well as top cooking surface temps of 300F. So far, Nick has baked biscuits and cookies inside the oven and has used the top surface to scramble eggs and cook soup! What does this mean? The oven is moving to production!
We are excited to heat, cook, and bake with the NEW Dwarf 5kW Cookstove Combo!
DWARF OVEN FEATURES
(still in development, specs may change)
- Simple retro-fitted top mount design – The new oven design will be easily mountable to the top of any Dwarf 5kW stove that uses the rear exit flue flange. Don’t already have a rear exit installed? No worries, read on…
- Compact rear exit adapter – The oven will come standard with a new compact rear exit that reduces the footprint of our standard rear exit by about 4”. (Note: a standard rear exit tee or insulated tee will still work with the oven though the oven cooktop temps will be slightly lower. The interior oven and stovetop temps will not be affected.)
- No additional flue height limitations – The previous version required a minimum of 120” of flue height in order for the oven to function properly. By removing the oven from the flue system itself, you are now able to use the oven with a wider range of flue designs and heights.
- Larger baking capacity – The interior of the new oven measures 13”W x 13”H x 11” D
- Improved cooking surface – The new cooking surface will now be made of cast iron and have a removable cooktop ring to allow for more direct heat to a skillet or pot should you need to achieve higher surface cooking temps. The new cast iron top will also extend out further than the previous version, giving more cooktop real estate.
- Heat shield upgrade option – The new oven will have mounting holes similar to those found on the Dwarf 5kW stove. These holes will allow you to mount our new oven heat shields or other DIY shields and accessories.
- Spring Handle
