ESSE has confirmed that its Ironheart wood-burning cookstove now meets stringent new air quality emissions requirements due to come into effect next year.

The new Ironheart Ecodesign complies with the new emissions requirements thanks to the company’s combustion technology. With an energy efficiency rating of ‘A’, the new Ironheart operates at more than 80% efficiency.

ESSE first launched Ironheart to celebrate the 150th anniversary of ESSE back in 2004. With 7.6kW of heat output, the Ironheart is equipped to bring out the very best in creative cooks – so no wonder it’s become a firm favourite at River Cottage HQ, the company says.

The Ironheart was joined by the more compact Bakeheart and Warmheart stoves in 2018, complementing the original Ironheart and providing heating solutions for smaller spaces where less heat output and cooking functionality are required.

Every ESSE is hand made to order at the company’s Lancashire factory, where it says it proudly uses UK steel and castings in all its stove and cooker products.
