The original version of the Hungry Penguin has now been discontinued, and replaced with an even more efficient Ecodesign version. Yes, really!
This stove does it all, it keeps you warm, cooks your dinner and boils your kettle for a coffee afterwards. It’s ideal for canal boats, studios and homes where you don’t want to be dependant on mains gas and electricity.
If you are trying to reduce your carbon footprint or your fuel bill, being able to heat and cook from the same fuel load makes a lot of sense.
If you want that smug feeling of warm toes and a hot pasty that makes sense too. It is a different experience to cooking with flick-a-switch power... but you’re off grid and the stoves on anyway!
See stove colours for more detail.
Cooking on a penguin
All our cooker models have an oven box and top plate (oven top surface). The Hungry Penguin comes out with a stainless steel oven bottom trivet, to put cooking dishes on.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. 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. There is a small vent hole at the rear of the oven box to allow cooking smells to escape up the flue.
Extra Height Oven (Tall order)
The Hungry Penguin is also available with an extra height oven. This increases the internal oven height to a total of 200 mm. See the Tall Order page
