Types of miniature stoves include miniature wood stoves, pellet stoves and gas stoves. Cubic's mini wood stoves are only 12 inches tall, are very lightweight and can be used just about anywhere, even on boats and in RVs.
Despite their small sizes, some miniature stoves can heat fairly large areas. The Enviro Mini pellet stove stands at just 34 inches but is capable of heating up to 1,200 square feet.
Miniature gas stoves are used for heating and cooking. The Cottage Mini Soapstone stove can heat between 100 and 400 square feet, while the Coleman Camp Bistro stove is a lightweight cooking stove for use when camping.
