The compact Warmheart wood-fired cooking stove is the perfect heating solution for a bijou country cottage or remote backcountry bothy.

While its rugged cast-iron design and simple styling may give the impression that the Warmheart has been around for decades, this state-of-the-art piece of quality British engineering encapsulates everything we’ve learned in more than 160 years of manufacturing stoves and range cookers.

Using the same principles as our best-selling Ironheart, the wood-fired Warmheart provides ample heat to keep things warm and toasty while a casserole bubbles away on the hob or a couple of steaks sizzle in the firebox.

No gas or electricity? No problem. The Warmheart comes into its own in an off-grid environment, making it the perfect choice for heating a bolt hole in the outback or a cabin in the woods.

While our standard range cookers are designed to contain heat, the Warmheart also incorporates convection panels that radiate warmth out into the room – just like a wood-burning stove.

ESSE’s unique heat transfer stove technology efficiently channels heat from the firebox into the graduated temperature hob, extracting energy from the combustion process for your wood-fired cooking adventures.

The graduated temperature hob offers additional heat control, with the heat reducing from 300˚C in the centre down to 190˚C at the outside.

Designed to accommodate dry, seasoned logs of up to 400mm (15in) length the Warmheart can be installed pretty much anywhere to provide a reliable, ‘off-grid’ source of heat for extended periods.
