I would be careful. A heat loss on the kitchen should be done and the Btu/hr of the radiation compared. The iron may be in the attic because it didn't put out enough. Kitchens often have too little wall space and people go with little units with fans in the bottom of cabinets or taller wall mounted radiators or convector boxes in which you can stack a few elements. The other issue is the rate finned copper works at compared to the iron. The heat in the iron lasts longer in your other rooms after shutdown allowing the kitchen to cool. You might want to look in salvage yards for a wall hung radiator. They were made for baths and kitchens. You could look at improving the flow of heat to and from other rooms.
