The Fat Penguin has all the features of the Hungry Penguin. It will warm you, feed you and make you a brew but it’s even bigger! The extra width is due to the convector panels, making this a convector stove. The output is still 5kW but this is a bigger, bolder penguin. Strong, simple lines, clear view of the roaring fire. Gorgeous in green, confident in black, radiant in red.

The Fat Penguin has a 5kW fire box, a top oven and top plate, just like the Hungry Penguin, but the side convection panels make it wider. This makes the Fat Penguin a convector or hybrid (radiant-convector) stove. It is an Eco design stove.
Although often chosen for the look and large top plate which offers a wider surface for placing a kettle on, the convector panels makes this stove particularly effective for heating a large, well insulated room.
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.
There is a "tall order" version of this stove with 200mm high oven box, called the Fat Penguin (Tall Order)
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 oven is 100mm high and comes with an oven bottom shelf. It will fit a small casserole dish or two small loaf pans. 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.
