READ THE FULL STORY >
Established in 1854, ESSE is the UK's oldest stove manufacturer. The entire range of cast iron range cookers, gas stoves, woodburning stoves and cookstoves has been designed to offer energy-efficiency and lower running costs.
The knowledge and skills developed over more than a century and a half, go into everything we do and ESSE range cookers and stoves are hand built to last a lifetime - just ask one ESSE owner, whose cast iron ESSE range cooker has been in continuous daily use since 1920!
From River cottage to the Himalayas, Australia to the Arctic, and everywhere in between... ESSE range cookers and stoves have been relied upon in the world's most demanding environments.
ESSE range cookers combine classic style with modern benefits so you don't have to compromise the way you cook; our oil cookers, woodfired cookers, gas cookers and electric cookers combine generous cooking capacities with energy efficiency and all offer rapid heat up times. Our EC4i electric range cooker even has a state-of-the-art induction hob.
Wood burning cookers are gaining in popularity thankd to their rustic appeal and carbon neutral status.
The ESSE Ironheart is a modern classic; unveiled in 2004 to celebrate 150 years of ESSE. It combines the quintessential features of ESSE's range cookers and wood burning stoves and is a firm favourite at River Cottage.
Energy-efficient ESSE stoves come in a wide variety of styles and fuel types: from the flueless gas Firewalls and modern gas stoves to the traditional cast iron woodburning stoves, we have something to suit every home, from chic and contemporary to timeless and traditional.
Thanks to their innovative design, many ESSE wood burning stoves and wood burning cookers are carbon neutral and many of our stoves are suitable for burning wood in smoke control areas under the DEFRA exemption scheme.
For the ultimate energy-efficient stove, consider one of our inset stoves. ESSE pioneered the first British convector stoves and continues to lead the industry in developing these efficient alternatives to an open fire.
If woodburning stoves aren't for you, choose one of ESSE's electric stoves or chic, flueless gas firewalls. Because their is no flue to consider, these stoves can be placed wherever you think looks best within your home.
