ESSE has been hand-building stoves and cast iron cookers for more than a century and a half. Our stoves have been tried, tested and trusted across the world.

From the frozen wastes of the Antarctic, to hotels and hospitals throughout the British Empire – ESSE cookers and stoves have historically been relied upon in some of the most gruelling environments you would ever expect to find them.

Every stove is hand built in Britain with pride, just as they have been for 160 years.

Not only are these stoves built with attention-to-detail by skilled craftsmen, they are also some of the most energy efficient on the market, helping save on energy bills and running costs.

A wide range of styles and specifications ensures there is a stove to suit you and your home perfectly.

There are models with hot water boilers, double door models and even a stove that cooks to perfection. Every ESSE stove (except the Ironheart) is also available as a smoke-exempt or ‘SE’ version which is suitable for burning wood in smoke control areas thanks to an innovative, clean-burning design. All ESSE stoves also feature Afterburn™ airwash technology for clear door glass and exceptional burn rate control.

All ESSE stoves offer an excellent energy efficiency rating of over 80% for glowing and economical warmth day and night.
