Wood Burning Cook Stove
The ‘Ironheart’ cooking stove is a hybrid product, it is a cooker that burns logs beautifully and a stove that cooks to perfection.
Cooking only - Model EW
Essentially the cooking stove makes the most of the two things ESSE does best. An inspired combination of a superb log burning stove and traditional, cast iron range cooker.
And therein lies its charm and appeal… it is equally at home as a stove or as a range cooker.
The firebox has been specificially designed to burn 500mm logs, length ways, which it does in spectacular fashion, providing a splendid view of the flames through a large rectangular glass fire door. As the heat source for the oven and hotplates it has to be highly controllable, which it is, thanks to simple but effective primary and secondary air flow controls, the secondary control providing an airwash which keeps the door glass clear.
The Ironheart can burn multi-fuel and/or wood but for improved woodburning performance, a simple to fit conversion kit is available that will improve control and efficiency when burning logs. The kit comprises of a steel box that replaces the standard grate and ashpan creating a deeper firebox with no grate. This enables more logs to be loaded and provides a flat base for an ash bed to develop which is essential when burning wood.
We do not recommend that the Ironheart is used as a primary cooking appliance as it is also a stove designed to radiate much more heat (8kW plus) than our range cookers.
Cooking and domestic hotwater – Model EWB
The EWB is equipped with a boiler and is capable of running a single radiator as well as providing domestic hot water.
Unique satin steel hotplate covers
Our classic hotplate covers have been finished in stunning textured satin or polished stainless steel to complement the graphite finished surfaces.
Classic ESSE 'dog-bone' hotplates
The trademark dog-bone hotplates offer a large hob area with designated heat zones for easy 'pan slide' operation.
Simple and effective airwash control
This conveniently located slide operation control keeps the door glass clear.
Oven temperature control
A simple slide action lever enables a surprising degree of oven temperature control making cooking a pleasure.
High capacity glass fronted firebox
Designed to take 500mm logs the firebox does not require constant refuelling and provides a spectacular view of the flames.
Single large oven
Offering authentic ESSE range cooking this large oven has vented extraction so cooking odours disappear up the flue.
Easy and convenient ash removal
The generous ashpan can be easily accessed via the protective door and removed using a special tool.
Easy access to flue ways
Occasional cleaning of the flue ways is easy thanks to a removable access panel hidden behind a hinged door below the oven.
