The pot belly stove is an unmovable, contained fire pit. The pot belly stove functions identically to the player-made fire, the kitchen stove, the fireplace, and the fire barrel. The pot belly stove provides no advantage over fireplaces or kitchen stoves, but it does allow protection against wind, which the player-made fire does not.

The pot belly stove can be re-lit indefinitely.
