So, today we’re talking about tiny house stove – the heart of a small kitchen! As someone who’s always been fascinated by small living spaces, I’ve learned a thing or two from my friends who live in vans, 25 square meter apartments, and other cozy abodes. They’ve shown me that even the tiniest kitchen can be a culinary oasis with the right stove. And those are pure works of art. So, without further ado, let’s dive into some of the key considerations for choosing a tiny house stove.

Go for vertical cooktop

A vertical cooktop may be the way to go if you want to make the most of your small kitchen space. Most horizontal designs leave space above the cooktop that isn’t used, but a vertical design can make full use of this space.

A vertical cooktop may also be easily fitted into the width of your countertop due to its narrow design, making it a perfect match for your kitchen sink. Not only that, but a vertical cooktop can help save countertop space, giving you more room to work with. With the knobs and controls oriented vertically on a vertical cooktop, you can save even more room than with a traditional horizontal design.

Use induction cooktops instead of gas

Induction cooktops are a better option than gas if you want an effective and space-saving solution for your small kitchen. They are not only more energy-efficient, but they also heat up faster, making them excellent for busy cooks who need to rapidly prepare a meal.

They’re also considerably safer because they don’t emit an open flame, lowering the chance of accidental burns or fires. Furthermore, its sleek and modern appearance lends a sense of sophistication to any kitchen. Finally, it’s much easier to clean an induction cooktop than a gas stove!

Of course, it will depend on your cooking habits. For example, if you prefer to cook with a wok, you might look for a stove with a high-powered burner. But doing a Wok Hei in a tiny house kitchen? I’m not sure about that 🙂

Choose a portable cooktop

If you don’t cook often or have a super tiny countertop that can’t serve prep and cook at the same time, then a portable induction cooktop might just be the perfect solution for you.

Not only are these compact cooktops easy to store away when not in use, but they also provide a fast and efficient cooking experience. This is a life-saver for my friend Jeremy in his van, where he has one folding table for preparing, cooking and working.

The portable cooktop is very affordable, one of my favorite is the iSiLER 1800W Electric Induction Cooker Cooktop, not because it looks sleek and minimal, but it’s also cheap, durable and can serve all my cooking needs like simmer, deep fry, boil, sauté, sear, steam, slow cook and grill with ease.

Look for a stove with built-in ventilation (Downdraft Cooktop)

Proper ventilation is essential while cooking in a tiny house or any small place to prevent your living space from turning into a smelly sauna, but we also understand that implementing good ventilation can be difficult in a tiny house. Looking for a stove with built-in ventilation/downdraft cooktop can be a lifesaver in this situation. 

It not only saves you the trouble of figuring out how to build a separate ventilation system, but it also frees up valuable counter and storage space. Furthermore, there will be no smoke or grease hanging in the air and adhering to your clothes or furnishings. And yes, you won’t sweat like a marathon runner every time you fry an egg anymore.

However, this solution is considered a fancy upgrade. It cost more than $2,000 for a GE Profile Series Electric Cooktop below.

Consider Materials and durability

Because tiny houses are often subject to movement and vibration, it’s important to choose a stove that is made of sturdy and durable materials. Additionally, because the stove may be subjected to extreme temperatures and regular wear and tear, it’s important to choose a stove that can withstand heavy use over time.

Think about the style and design

In addition to functionality and cost, it’s also important to consider the style and design of the stove. Look for a stove that fits with the overall aesthetic of your tiny house and reflects your personal taste and style. No matter where you live, a tiny house, a VR or a mobile kitchen, make it you.

That’s it

As we conclude our discussion on tiny house stove solutions, we hope that these pointers were useful in generating insights and ideas for your own cooking arrangement.

Remember that a small kitchen doesn’t have to imply losing functionality or aesthetic. You can make a room that is both useful and fun to cook in by choosing the right stove, making the most of the vertical space, and making sure there is enough ventilation. So go ahead, be creative, and enjoy your cooking!
