Well, worry not, because at Direct Stoves we’ve got an unmatched variety of small, compact gas stoves. Read on to discover the best small gas stoves.

How big is your fireplace?

Before we delve into our best small gas stoves, we want to ask you an important question. 

How big is your fireplace?

It may seem like a simple and obvious question, but establishing the correct dimensions of your fireplace before you choose a stove will save you any potential headaches further down the line. 

If you need some tips on correctly measuring your fireplace, check out this handy guide from our sister company Direct Fireplaces.

Make sure you have enough clearance

As well as establishing the size of the fireplace where your stove will fit, you should also make sure you have enough clearance. 

You want to make sure that you leave enough distance between the stove and things like wallpaper or plasterboard which could get too hot.

If in doubt, the instruction manual of your stove will normally detail any particular clearance requirements.

With those considerations out of the way, let’s take a look at the best small gas stoves.
