The Hobbit stove is a little 'beast'! It is small and compact but it produces an ample amount of heat. We use it to heat our relatively big living room and it does its job perfectly. And it looks very attractive too. Would highly recommend it to all who are tight on space and need a powerful, reliable and 'handsome' stove to keep them warm during the cold winter months.
