Esse adds to wood-fired cooking family
Esse, whose wood-fired cooking stove, the Ironheart, has been a best-seller with wood-fired cooking and rustic baking enthusiasts around the world, has launched two new British-built additions to its woodburning family. The Bakeheart and the Warmheart are both more compact designs, but are equally within the Ironheart tradition of providing a source of heat and a versatile means of cooking in a woodburner.
The Bakeheart provides radiant heat, a graduated temperature cooking hob and a 32-litre baking oven, in a woodburner format that incorporates convection panels to heat the room, and patented heat transfer stove technology for efficient channelling of heat from the firebox into the oven and hob. It is also compatible with a domestic boiler so its 5kW can provide hot water as well as heating and cooking facilities without the need for mains services.
The Warmheart is a smaller unit but still, says ESSE, has the capacity to “provide ample heat to cook for the whole family,” as well as heating the room. Using the same principles as the Ironheart, the wood-fired Warmheart’s hob can cook a casserole while steaks are cooking in the firebox.
Both the Warmheart and Bakeheart can, says ESSE, “be installed pretty much anywhere to provide a reliable, ‘off-grid’ source of heat for extended periods.” They are suitable for use in smoke control areas, have an efficiency rating of 82.3% and are Energy Rated A+.
