When we fell in love with the Chubby 5 we thought that there could be no other…but we have a new guilty pleasure, the Chubby 8. This gives out 8 kW of chilli hot heat like the Penguin 8 but with more to love; extra chubbiness with the side convector panels and extra height to balance it up and store your logs underneath.
Convector stoves. This stove is one of our 5 convector stoves. Although often chosen for the appearance and large top plate, which offers a wider surface for placing a kettle on, the convector panels cause heat to move in a different way, making these stove particularly effective for heating large, well insulated rooms.
As hot air created by heat from the stove's bodywork expands, it becomes lighter than the air outside the stove and rises up inside the convector panels, exiting from the top of the panels. This is replaced by cooler heavier air drawn in at the bottom of the panels, which is in turn heated. The warmer, lighter air will fill the room while the colder, heavier air being drawn in at the bottom of the stove will create a continuous heat cycle, which gently moves air around the room.
See stove colours for more detail.
The Chubby 8 has an 8kW output with a large glass window. It uses the Chilli Penguin clean burn and air wash system, giving a lovely clear view of the fire and high efficiencies. Like all our domestic stoves the Chubby 8 is very controllable.
Air controls The penguin disc on the front of the stove is an air boost disc, it is designed to balance open as the fire establishes, then swing down. It should be free swinging. The primary and secondary air control knobs can be used to achieve the burn that you want and be adjusted for the fuel type.
