Villager Kitchener stove

The Villager Kitchener stove is easy to recognise - as the flue pipe comes out on one side of the top of the stove.

You can choose to have the flue out of the right or left hand side of the top.

It therefore lends itself to light cooking with a bigger flat top surface.

The Kitchener has 2 doors with plain glass panels.

There is an optional boiler available.

  • Brst stove

    I've been in the building industry all my life and have always recommended Villager stoves to customers. I have been using my Kitchener for 15 years and the only maintenance other than cleaning
    is replacement of the door seals about 2 years ago. Excellent quality, well made and designed. Best thing to be said for the approach of winter!!

  • Smallest cooking + boiler stove option

    R Wenner 11 years ago

    I have a small rural 1 room bothy --well insulated-- with open sleeping loft, which would normally require no more than a 5 KW woodstove. However I wanted DHW for small shower and sink, and
    also wanted some minimal cooking function from the stove, so I got an 8Kw Villager Kitchener with a back boiler--with a large dutch oven it is possible to bake scones and bread and jacket potatoes on the hot-plate, as well as boil a kettle. I invested in a flu thermometer to monitor the heat, and only burn 2 yr aged wood and it works fine. Excellent hut insulation means that although the stove, being airwash, doesn't burn all night, --the bothy isn't arctic when I start the fire again next morning. Kitchener is the smallest cheapest wood stove that you can do basic cooking on--invest in a large dutch oven and a trivet to fit inside it to raise baking pans so that the bottoms don't burn, and you can bake anything once you learn your stove, and how your wood burns. I wish that the glass windows were larger so as to have a broader view of the flames; but I really can't complain.
