Stove Story +

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.

This is the original stove that began the business. The design has evolved over the years, but the fire box and oven remain almost identical. Our very first penguin will always be a bit special for us!

Whats More +

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, we're with you all the way! It is a different experience to cooking with flick-a-switch power... but you’re off grid and the stoves on anyway!

The Hungry Penguin is also available with an extra height oven, called the Hungry Penguin (Tall order).This increases the internal oven height to a total of 200 mm.

Penguin Facts +


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.


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 Hungry Penguin achieves 33 mg/m3 burning wood and 12 mg/m3 burning smokeless fuel. All other measures for the Hungry Penguin are all listed in our technical details table below.  Click here for further Ecodesign info.
