THE PIPSQUEAK

Small Stove Review

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text use_border_color=”off” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” background_size=”initial” _builder_version=”3.2.2″]

Salamander stoves out of the UK make cast iron multi-fuel stoves for a variety of small spaces. The Pipsqueak is their smallest stove. Its super compact size and small flue size make it ideal for narrow placements where modest heat is needed. Its small size and weight make it perfect for small yurts and canvas wall tents.

Bottom line
We have not physically tested the Pipsqueak yet (we are awaiting a sample) but from what we have seen/read it appears to be a great little budget stove. I personally love the look of this little wood/coal burner and it has tons of character! The cast iron construction will last for years and it’s a great conductor of heat. The rear flue exit allows the entire top of the stove to be used as a cooking surface. Looking forward to getting this stove installed and firing it up!

Features
The Pipsqueak is pretty basic. Its features:

  • Handy Multi-Tool
  • Removable Ash Pan
  • Rear Flue Exit Only
  • Glass Window on Door for Viewing Fire
  • Coal Bar for coal use

Ease of use
Will update when we receive a sample.

Performance
Will update when we receive a sample.

  1. Bought one 3 winters ago and am very pleased with it and it Heats our 20ft caravan and supplies lots of hot water.

  2. We bought a Pip Squeak a few years back. It is amazing, but we cannot get anyone to certify it for insurance purposes. It is in our Shepherds Hut, but until we get the insurance certificate, we can’t allow people to light it in case of carbon monoxide leakage etc…any help greatly welcomed!

    1. Simon-

      That’s a good point. Most of our customers are installing stoves in spaces not subject to building codes like tiny houses, buses, RVs, and vans, so certifications aren’t a problem. If you need something for insurance purposes, I’d suggest contacting Salamander Stoves directly to see if it’s available. If anybody else is considering installing one of these stoves in a space subject to building codes, it’s best to talk to your insurance company and local code enforcement first, so you don’t have a problem later.

  3. I have had a pipsqueak burning for two years in my conservatory I keep two parrots in there, it goes through the roof on single wall pipe with a silicon bellows never had a problem you can burn 2 or 3 bits of coal, or up to eight, that’s when you need to open the doors and windows, Eastkilbride Scotland.
