Product Description

While ESSE’s enamelled cookers are designed to contain heat within the body of the cooker, the Ironheart has convection panels in the side to radiate warmth so it acts as a wood-burning stove as well.

There are primary and secondary air controls allowing a high level of control.

The Ironheart has plenty of cooking potential and is in use at River Cottage. The oven has a 47.8ltr capacity and trays can be placed directly on the oven floor as well as on the shelves, while the dogbone hotplate can accommodate up to six pans. So you can cook a joint of beef, potatoes and a crumble in the oven, and have four pans of veg, gravy or custard bubbling away on the hob.  You can even use the warm space around the edge of the hotplate to prove bread before baking.

The Ironheart gives out up to 9.7kW to the room depending on fuel type and settings; this heat output is comparable to two medium-sized woodburning stoves. However, it is supplied with a heat screen which can be hung in front of the firebox for your comfort while cooking.A clean-burning design and minimal emissions make for an efficiency level of up to 81.8%. The Ironheart is also available with a domestic hot water boiler.
