This stove has all the features of the Fat Penguin but has a taller oven box, ideal for bakers and bread makers, lover of sticky cakes and savoury bakes. This stove does it all, it keeps you warm, cooks your dinner and boils your kettle for a coffee afterwards. It allows you to make the most of the fuel that you’re using to heat your room, it feels like you are cooking for free!
It is also a convector stove, this is explained further in the “whats more” section.

WHY A TALL ORDER?
The tall order stoves grew out of a customer suggestion, it all began with a phone call, "this might be a tall order but can you make me a stove with a taller oven? I want to bake bread in it". We now make a tall order version of the Hungry Penguin, the Fat penguin and the High and Mighty penguin.
Although often chosen for the look and large top plate which offers a wider surface for placing a kettle on, the convector panels makes these stoves particularly effective for heating large, well insulated rooms.
How do convector panels work?
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.
You can also "tall order" the Hungry Penguin and the High and Mighty Penguin. All of the tall order stoves come with two removable cooking shelves.
COOKING ON A PENGUIN
All our cooker models have an oven box and top plate (oven top surface). The oven temperature can reach up to 300°C, but it will tick over comfortably between 140-180°C. You can fit a small saucepan and kettle on the top plate. The convector stoves offer a wider top plate. In the tall order stoves, there are two cooking positions, the oven bottom shelf and the mid height shelf. We have cookware designed for our stoves available in our online shop.
STAINLESS STEEL TOP PLATES
If you regularly use the top plate there is an optional stainless steel top plate available. This sits on top of the stove and has a U shaped cut out for the flue. Alternatively, if you plan to rear flue, you can order one with no cut out. (a flat stove top and/or stainless top without cut out should be specified at point of order)
There is also a steel corner top plate option, called a “triongl”, a perfect size for a single kettle or pan to sit on, available in our online shop.
There is a vent hole at the rear of the oven box, this allows cooking smells to escape up the flue. If you want any cooking inspiration see our recipe page.
In order to be an Ecodesign stove, a stove must be independently verified to meet stringent emission requirements. Particulates or PMs are the most commonly recognised of these measures. The maximum limit for these is 40 mg/m3. The Fat Penguin achieves 33 mg/m3 burning wood and 12 mg/m3 burning smokeless fuel. All other measures for the Fat Penguin are all listed in our technical details table below. Click here for further Ecodesign info.
