Roast, bake, steam, stew, simmer, fry, braise, grill, boil and toast...
...your ESSE will effortlessly manage all of these, with a warmth and friendliness that only a true cast iron range cooker can. It will instill a welcome leisurely pace to life in these frantic times and it will encourage you to cook in a more natural way.
The wonderful taste and aroma of superbly cooked dishes for every occasion, from the simple to the sumptuous, will be your constant reminder that you've chosen a rather special gas or electric range cooker.
Mouth watering meats, beautifully cooked with all the juices and flavours sealed in, are the order of the day with an ESSE range cooker. Chicken, turkey, duck and game birds are crisp and golden roasted on the outside, yet tender and succulent on the inside, whilst bread and pastries rise to perfection - and often disappear within seconds of removing them from the oven!
But although the cooking methods may be traditional, the range of food that you can cook is wide and varied. The versatile hotplate can handle up to six pans and is also ideal for stir-frying. And you'll find your ESSE makes the perfect pizza oven, cooking evenly and gently, retaining moisture in the toppings and baking the base to perfection.
And you don't need to be a passionate or experienced cook to get the most out of your ESSE. Satisfying the constant demands of family and friends has never been easier thanks to the superb controllability of an ESSE. In fact, it turns what some people might consider a necessary chore into an enjoyable and rewarding part of daily life.
On this part of the website you will find our complete range of cookers available in all fuel types, carbon neutral wood fired, solid mineral fuel, electric, gas (either flueless or conventionally flued) and oil. And unlike Aga cookers, ESSE range cookers can power your central heating system, and provide domestic hot water thanks to optional boiler models. All models cook food beautifully, and ESSE is the range cooker of choice at the famous River Cottage, whose head Chef Gill Meller contributes regularly to our online recipe section.
