Cooking with a Chilli Penguin Stove


The Hungry Penguin, the Fat Penguin and the High & Mighty all have a small oven box at the top of the stove, dimensions below. The Penguin 88 has a bigger oven box, on top.The oven temperature is variable as it depends on how much, which fuel and how long the stove has been lit for. The top surfaces of all the stoves including the Chilli Billie can all be used as a cooking surface and to boil a kettle. 


It is not the same as conventional cooking, you may find it takes you a little while to be confident using it, it is less controllable than a conventional oven and boiling a kettle is much slower than using a plug in one...but if your stove is on anyway....give it a go...the stove wants you to.
