We produce top quality stoves that do what they say and do it well. We also want them to last a long time. We spend a long time in the design and development process to ensure this. Chilli Penguin Stoves have very effective air wash and clean burn systems. All our domestic stoves meet the current and very comprehensive UK and EU standards, most are smoke control (DEFRA) exempt. All of our 5kW stoves meet the new 2022 emissions regulations, the 8kW stoves will follow soon. The stoves efficiency ratings are amongst the highest currently available in the UK. This means that you will get more heat out of the fuel that you put in. We sell through a carefully selected stockist network so that you will receive accurate, safe and current information to help you select the right stove and ensure it is safely installed and complies with all current regulations.
We design and and manufacture the Chilli Penguin Stove range

We are a small family run business located near the stunning coastline of the Llŷn Peninsula in North Wales. What inspires and excites us is beautiful, functional design. We love things that look amazing and perform brilliantly. We love fire and steel. We love the idea of stoves, objects that warm homes and lives, that can be fuelled by a renewable resource like trees. We want our stoves to burn as efficiently and cleanly as possible, a number of our stoves are already Ecodesign compliant.
Air wash system Pre-heated air is introduced via channels and jets at the back of the firebox and above the door. The jets over the door are directed at the glass, creating a cushion of air, this is called an air wash. The combination of the clean burn features and the air wash result in a clear, uninterrupted view of the fire. Our stainless steel handles have been re-designed to improve the feel of positive closure and to ensure that the handles remain vertical…we want our penguins to always look and feel good. Ecodesign stoves. 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. This stove achieves 36 mg/m3 burning wood and 15 mg/m3 burning smokeless fuel. All other measures are all listed in our technical details table below.
The Short Penguin Eco is an Ecodesign stove. It uses a combination of three new clean burn features to achieve lower emissions and over 80% efficiency. Secondary heat retaining glazing has been introduced. The combustion air jets have been redesigned and air flow diversion has been introduced. The combination of these new features mean that the temperatures in the firebox are higher resulting in a more efficient burn of the fuel. In addition the combustion gases remain in these higher temperatures for longer which causes more complete burn of the gases resulting in less harmful emissions and less particulates.
We are committed to UK manufacturing not only because the UK is good at it but also every order contributes to the salary of someone local to us or someone who we know. We sell through a national network of independent specialist shops who can offer specialist advice about stoves and their installation. We believe that a stove is a special product and should be sold by specialists, we don’t sell our stoves on line.
Very much enjoying being an owner of a 5KW Chilli Penguin stove. So is my cat! I’m really liking the little oven on the top – Welsh Rarebit comes out very delicious indeed. By far my favourite design wise of all the sources we looked at as it’s not trying to look Victorian or ultra modern. and looks just right.
