TRIED AND TESTED

1854 – National hero and pioneer of modern nursing, FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE, was passionate about ESSE cookers and would use no other brand at her field hospital in Balaclave during the CRIMEAN WAR.

 

1909 – Explorer SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON relied upon warmth to his shore partyduring his British ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION. The ESSE ‘Mrs Sam’ stove still stands in Shackleton’s base hut at Cape Royds.

 

1985 – ESSE makes its big screen debut appearing alongside SIR ROGER MOORE as JAMES BOND in ‘A View to Kill’.

 

 

2019 – and today, ESSE stoves and Cookers provide heat on HRH PRINCE CHARLES’S estate at Dumfries House in Ayrshire and they are counted on to provide delicious food in Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s RIVER COTTAGE kitchens.

ELECTRIC

Features independently controlled temperature settings and ESSE’s power share system continously optimises performance to ensure all elements work together in harmony whether a single hotplate or the whole cooker is in use. No flue is required so the cooker of your choice can be positioned in a location of your choice with standard power sockets. 

WOODFIRED

Taking slow-cooked casseroles  to the next level. It creates a focal point at the heart of the kitchen. The heat from the firebox fills the entire room with radiant warmth. Esse have developed clean-burning, low emission stoves for over 160 years and each model extracts heat from the wood, emitting minimal smoke and leaving a tiny amount of ash. 

HYBRID

Half wood-fired half electric range cooker with optional hot water boiler. The best of both worlds: the convenience and control of electric power with the cosy glow of a real fire. When your head wants the ease and convenience of electric power, but your heart still yearns for a real fire, ESSE has the answer.
