Pictured here are the original Jr. Chubby (left) and Large Chubby. Each unit is over 30 years old. Many Chubby stoves are still in service with the original owners. A restored Chubby Stove is selling for more money today than they did new 30 years ago, double in some cases.

Plain but fancy

Our Coal Stove Chubby’s have been heating homes in New England for 45 years. Built with an outer steel shell, and inner cast iron fire pot. This combination has withstood the test of time for over a quarter century.

The graceful, time-honored Acanthus Leaf vines cast into the stoves top, doors and legs is a favorite of architects and designers.

Every Coal Stove Chubby made has had the Mayflower cast in front and center. Although we like to think of our Coal Stove Chubbys as supplemental home heaters many appliance owners will tell you different.

Anyone can use a Chubby Stove.

An anthracite nut fire can be established once the temperature is below 50 degrees and will run until the heating season ends in April. A single filling of the fire pot will supply you with plenty of heat, without attention, for hours on end. The Coal Stove Chubby will run at 300 – 600 degrees comfortably 24 hours a day, with or without electricity. Try doing that with your oil or gas thermostat. The cost to fuel this type of warmth right now, is about $325 – $350 a year, in most areas, per bagged ton delivered to your home in clean 40lb. plastic bags. Unlike a pellet stove, a Coal Stove Chubby requires – No annual maintenance or adjustments. Just an occasional freshening up with a coat of high-temperature stove paint. Be totally warm.

Next, have you heard coal was dirty? Wrong. Maybe in the days when central furnaces without gaskets were used. So, when I am asked this question, I usually reply, what do you mean, and people are not sure. Dirty to the touch, or dirty to burn in the house? Well, that’s just what I’ve heard.. maybe compared to wood for instance? – This is where the rubber meets the road. Read more.

Unlike the dusty non-gasketed central furnaces of yesterday, today’s parlor heaters are gasketed and are constructed in a manner that makes residential use a great alternative heating source. The piece of mind of owning a supplemental home heater (or one for daily use) is truly liberating. One other thing, once you experience the heat from an anthracite home heating parlor stove, you will wonder why you went without this wonderful heat. Be totally warm.

Start your anthracite home heating journey by calling us with your installation questions. Whether your interest is full-time use, or just keeping warm during a power outage, we are here to speak with you. For less than $350.00 this season, in most areas, you can purchase a pallet, of bagged anthracite nut delivered to your door. Some people heat exclusively with a Chubby Stove and use no oil or gas at all. The future belongs to those who prepare for it! Don’t wait for the power to go out or fuel prices to rise again before you consider a purchasing a supplementary home heating appliance.

Anthracite coal is environmentally friendly. It burns with virtually no smoke and few emissions, producing no soot or creosote buildup. Anthracite is a low sulfur fuel and can be delivered to your home in clean plastic bags that will remain ready to go even if not used for many years. Anthracite never goes bad.

Dear Friends.

In recent years we’ve been living in a cold home.  Even though our thermostat is set at 68 degrees the house just never seems warm. As a young girl, I remember our home always being warm. We had a kitchen stove which we fueled with anthracite. Mom used it for baking on a daily basis. When we converted our central home heater from coal to oil, it was never the same. The warm home disappeared. Sure it was easier, but even with very inexpensive oil back then the house was always chilly when the furnace cycled off. Like a warm home, the lure of inexpensive oil is also a thing of the past so I thought. I never forgot the beautiful heat of an anthracite burning heater. While visiting a home on a neighboring island here in Maine I saw a working Chubby Stove and I had to have one!! It is unlikely that I will go back to a coal-burning central furnace however, I am now the proud owner of a Coal Stove Chubby. The cold home is gone. The total warmth I was promised, has been totally delivered. Thank you so very much! We love our Coal Stove Chubby. ~ Peaks Island Maine.
