Fireplace stove with hob

Fireplaces never go out of style. They are constantly changing and improving. Not so long ago, a new product appeared on the market: a fireplace that combines the functions of a stove and cooking surface. Such a device has several advantages over an ordinary fireplace.

The main difference between a stove and a fireplace from a fireplace is the possibility of cooking on it. There are models with a hob and oven, but the latter are much smaller. Do not confuse the oven with the oven, in which they bake bread. Firewood burns in the stove and the temperature here is much higher than in the oven, which is heated by the heat from the firebox.

A stationary fireplace requires a foundation, and the stove does not need a fireplace. It can be installed absolutely on any surface. Its cost in comparison with a full-fledged fireplace is not great, and the cost of its installation is generally minimal. It is universal and easy to become part of any interior.The stove also serves as a source of heat and as a means for cooking.

A fireplace stove with a hob is an indispensable thing for a residential cottage or a country house, where there are often problems with gas supply or electricity outages. Having in your country house a fireplace combined with an oven, you can easily prepare both a light romantic dinner for two and a full-fledged banquet for a big party. And later you can enjoy its warmth and a reflection of the flame, comfortably sitting in front of him on a fluffy carpet. He will not let you suffer from cold and hunger in the literal sense of the word.

Material manufacturing stoves, fireplaces may be different. Consider the main options.

From cast iron

Her ancestor is a stove, upgraded in accordance with modern requirements. Cast iron is famous for excellent heat dissipation and resistance to high temperatures.

The shape of cast iron fireplaces are distinguished:

  • with streamlined shapes - round and oval
  • polygonal - in the form of a square, a rectangle, there are even triangular

By type of installation, the furnace is divided into:

  • recessed
  • attached to the wall
  • detached (island version)

The types of fuel on which pig-iron stoves operate:

  • firewood
  • Coal
  • peat
  • pallets - waste from the processing of the above products.

Some furnaces can operate on only one type of fuel, and there are options for mixed products of combustion.


Ideally, the ordering of the fireplace, combined with a panel and oven, is laid at the initial stage of construction. In all other cases, it will be necessary to carry out global restructuring of the whole house.

However, if you compare the stove with an oven and a brick panel with a similar variant of cast iron, then there are undeniable advantages. A brick oven keeps heat much longer than a cast-iron one.

Such fireplaces in finished form do not exist. They are made on a special project that needs to be ordered by a specialist - unless, of course, you do not own this skill perfectly. The services of such masters are expensive, but this is not the case when you can save. If the oven is laid out incorrectly, then the heat from it you will not wait, as well as delicious food. Improper traction does not allow the stove to flare up with full force. Soot and carbon monoxide will go into the room, and you risk poisoning.

Unlike a brick fireplace, a metal fireplace with stove and stove functions is very compact and mobile. Such a unit allows not only to cook and fry food, but also to dry vegetables and fruits, as well as to smoke meat and fish.

The metal furnaces almost immediately heat up and begin to produce heat. Warm air moves through the air duct, heating the room. In such fireplaces firewood slowly smolder, which allows you to get more heat. And even after burning down the wood, the stove remains warm for a long time. It is practically not necessary to look after them - it’s enough to load firewood once and the heat in the room is guaranteed for a long time.

Principle of operation

A classic solid fuel stove consists of several parts:

  • The portal is the front part of the stove, which is decorated with various accessories.
  • Fire chamber - the chamber where the process of combustion of fuel occurs;
  • The smoke box is a closed chamber in which all the waste of combustion is collected. From this chamber, carbon monoxide and smoke enter through a chimney exhaust.
  • Chimney. A vertical pipe that is responsible for creating air traction in the firebox and smoke exhaust;
  • Cooking stove for cooking.

The furnace consists of two sections.Firewood is laid in the upper part. In the lower part - the ash pit is poured ashes. This compartment can be closed with a decorative grille. A hob is located directly above. When the cooking process begins, the intensity of burning can be controlled by thrust. The hob can have a decorative cover that protects it from dust when not in use. Through the transparent glass of the door of the oven compartment, you can observe the burning process.

Food cooked on an open fire is significantly different in its taste, food cooked on a regular stove. And the aesthetic pleasure of observing live fire and the warmth emanating from the fireplace will make even the most simple interior cozy.
