This penguin started life as the Stock Cube, it was then developed into a convector model, and an integral plinth was added, so effectively a Stock Cube in extra large. It has all the qualities of the Stock Cube; strong, simple, efficient and clean burning. It shares the same firebox and performance as all of the stoves in the Stock Cube series. The Fubsy just gives you more to love…not only wider, but taller.
The name Fubsy we couldn’t resist, it comes from an old English word meaning “a short stature with a wide girth”, or “short and stout”. Who could walk past a Fubsy? It makes you want to dawdle, pause a while, fluff up a cushion, get a book, fill a glass.
If you want a 5kW wood burner, squarer and deeper than our Woody… taller and wider than the Stock Cube….this could be your penguin. Let a Fubsy warm you up and chill you out.
Although often chosen for the look and large top plate which offers a wider surface for placing a kettle on, the convector panels makes these stoves particularly effective for heating large, well insulated rooms.
How do convector panels work?
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.
This stove is beautifully simple to control, there is one air control knob. This is both the air boost, when fully extended and finer control when eased inwards. It comes with an air control tool to help you judge the boost control, but can equally just be operated by hand. Wood burns better on a bed of ash, but when you do want to empty it, you just scoop it out from the base of the firebox.
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. These and other measures are shown in the tech table.
