The Dwarf 3kW LITE has been discontinued and is replaced by our Dwarf 3kW Standard, which is the same size and output, but with added features like a coal bar, riddling grate, and a larger 4″ flue system that helps the stove draft better in less than ideal conditions, and makes a wall exit possible.

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 coal functions by decreasing the thickness of steel in the body construction, replaced the cast iron mechanical riddling grate with a simple grate, removed the coal bar and replaced the rigid firebricks with lightweight ceramic panels. What’s left is a simple, efficient tiny wood stove that’s perfectly suited for spaces where size and weight are a top priority. The 3kW LITE is perfect for spaces that regularly move like: RV’s, campers, vans, buses and sailboats.

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 has all the core features of our larger stoves but at a fraction of the size, weight and price!

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 3” Flue outlet can exit out the top or the rear of the stove depending on your needs. Exiting out the rear of the stove allows the entire top surface to be used as a cooking plate while exiting out the top of the stove allows are tighter installation with less clearances.



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 ceramic fiber board which is light weight and keeps the fire very hot which helps combust the wood thoroughly while buffering the body construction.



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.



You can customize the look of your stove by adding the tall cast iron legs or wood storage stand. We are working on additional off-grid features like: cooktop and water boiler.



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



The Dwarf can safely burn: burn wood, or compressed logs.


NOTE: This stove is not intended for residential heating. It is currently uncertified and only offered for recreational use.

    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.
