The Dwarf 3kw LITE Small Wood Stove

(8 customer reviews)


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.

We stumbled into the Tiny Wood Stove business after trying to source a stove for our Tiny Home a 1966 Airstream Travel Trailer. We wanted a modest-sized wood burner for affordable off-grid dry heat. After searching 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.

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, cast iron 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.


16” sides, 18” rear, 36″ top to ceiling. You can reduce required clearances by up to 2/3 with a properly designed heat shield.


The Dwarf 3kW LITE can safely burn: wood, charcoal, or compressed logs up to 8 inches long.
