Kitchen Life: When An Ordinary Stove Just Won’t Do.

Did you know that, on average, we in the UK spend 3 years of our lives working or socialising in our kitchens? To break that down, that’s 1,132 days or 27,156 hours, and we usually spend 72 minutes a time cooking our evening meals. So why spend all of those hours and days cooking on an ordinary stove, when a range cooker would not only turn your cooking time into an exquisitely decadent experience, it could also add value to your home!

ESSE pride themselves, not only on the beauty and quality of their range cookers, but also on the fact that so many respected, well-known chefs choose their cookers to work on. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Matt Tebbutt use only ESSE range cookers when giving demonstrations at the famous River Cottage in Dorset and Kate Humble also uses them at her ‘Humble By Nature’ working farm in Wales. She is so enamoured, in fact, that she has become an official ESSE ambassador.

The wood-fired Ironheart and 990 models, the Electric EL 13 and the smaller, single hob Bakeheart and Warmheart are a cut above the rest, with each individual cooker still made by hand in Lancashire by master craftsmen, just as they were when the company started in 1854.

Steam? Boil? Roast? Seer? Bake? Fry? Whatever you’re cooking for supper tonight, cook it on an ESSE hob.  We guarantee it will be 72 minutes of un-adulterated joy.

But don’t just take our word for it. Below is a short film of Matt Tebbutt demonstrating his and ESSE’s mastery.
