The Dwarf 3kw LITE is identical in size and heat output to the standard Dwarf 3kw but a fraction of the weight and price. To get these savings we removed all the bells and whistles for a very simple, lightweight and modestly priced stove. What’s left is a simple, efficient tiny wood stove that’s perfectly suited for spaces where size, weight and budget are top priority. The 3kW LITE is perfect for spaces that regularly move like: RV’s, campers, vans, buses and sailboats.  See the complete 3kW LITE vs 3kW Standard comparison here.

SKU: Dwarf3kWLITE Categories: ,



We stumbled into the Tiny Wood Stove business after trying to source a stove for our Tiny Home a 1966 Airstream. We wanted a modest-sized wood burner for affordable off-grid dry heat. After scouring the internet to find every possible solution we compiled a list of all the options. What we found was a bunch of stoves that were not ideal for our situation. They weren’t the right size, they didn’t have the right features or they were beyond our budget. So we set out to create the perfect stove for small spaces. The Dwarf is efficient, durable and affordable!

There has been a void in the market for a compact, fully-featured wood stove for spaces where size, weight, and efficiency are top priorities. The 3kw LITE is a chopped down version of our Dwarf line taking away all the bells and whistles but leaving you with a stove that is a fraction of the weight and price of our other line.

  • Cast Iron Door for Durability & Heat Retention
  • Large Window for Monitoring & Enjoying the Fire
  • Top Flue Exit
  • Fire Grate for Even Burning & Ash Pan for Easy Cleanup
  • Combined Primary and Secondary Air Control, and Separate Tertiary Air-Control
  • NEW! Spring Handle comes standard on all stoves!
  • Not compatible with our Direct-Air.



The sturdy body is made of thick 3/16″ top a bottom plate & 1/8″ body construction.



The door is made of high-quality cast iron which gives the face of the stove a classy look while providing optimal heat retention. (Cast iron remains hot much longer than steel)



The 3kw LITE uses a 4″ flue exit that exits out the top of the stove.



The Dwarf gives you complete control over primary, secondary and tertiary air supplies. Primary and secondary air are controlled by a single slide lever at the bottom of the stove and the tertiary air wash is controlled by a small gate valve just above the door.



The firebox of the Dwarf is made of a durable steel baffle, steel fire grate, and refractory firebrick. The fire bricks are made from lightweight ceramic fiberboard which reflect heat back to the fire for hot, clean-burning and protects the stove body from damage.



The bottom of the firebox is a simple cast iron grate that allows ash to fall away from the firebox. During a fire you can easily sift out ash by shifting the coals around with a long tool. Below the grate is a removable ash pan that catches ash for easy disposal.



400mm/16” sides, 450mm/18” rear. Clearances can be reduced by up to 2/3 with a properly designed heat shield.



The Dwarf 3kW LITE can safely burn: wood, charcoal, or compressed logs.

    Dwarf Stove, gigantic appeal! This stove has surpassed all my expectations. We use the stove aboard our 50′ sailboat on cool nights, sitting under the stars. A small amount of wood goes a long way to help keep us warm and the glass door does amazing things for the ambiance. We use Dickinson stainless stove pipe to vent the smoke downwind. Our sailing friend has a Dwarf installed inside her boat and it keeps the cabin toasty warm. A small stove with big performance that we gladly recommend!!!

    I just want to say that if i was able to give more than 5 stars i would. I couldn’t be happier with this product. I have had my 3kw LITE for almost a year now and have had zero issues with it. It is very efficient and will burn all night if needed. It is very well built and looks good to. I have this is my 308sq ft tiny house (including lofts) and have no issues at all heating it. The customer service i received while buying this was great, they answered any questions i had and was willing to help in anyway. you can tell they stand behind their product which is hard to come by anymore. Thanks again for a great wood stove.

    What kind of structure are you heating? RV

    Happened to be in stock when I purchased. It was shipped very quickly and got to me every quickly. Good instructions and works well in my 38 ft 5th wheel with 4 slides to keep it warm and enjoying the glow of the fire in the evenings. Good service and quality and have recommended to several friends.
