Esse 990 Range Cooker


The 990 WN represents the evolution of ESSE's wood-fired offering. It draws on classic ESSE styling from the 1930s, blending vintage aesthetics with modern benefits.

Within its cast iron construction, the 990 embodies years of experience, innovation, testing and refinement: resulting in a range cooker which not only looks stunning but also flies the flag for technological and environmental developments.

As well as being one of the most beautifully- proportioned cookers in the ESSE collection, we believe the 990 is the cleanest-burning cooker of its kind in the World. Twin catalytic combustors below the hotplate 'reburn' any smoke particles which escape from the fire resulting in miniscule CO emissions of just 0.01% - an amazing feat for an appliance which refuses to compromise on performance in any way. The efficiency of the 990 has been independently measured at more than 85%. The 990 is a DEFRA exempt appliance suitable for burning wood in a smoke control zone.

With three huge ovens and the biggest cast iron hotplate in our range, the stately 990 does not simply offer more space - but more flexibility. Each oven operates at a different temperature to provide the widest range of roasting and baking options. Oven temperatures are extremely even, so your dishes won't need to be turned during cooking. The 990's expansive hotplate also features different temperature zones so you can simply slide your pans across to the perfect boiling or simmering spot.

The most distinctive feature of the remarkable 990 is its unique firebox.

Opening the upper left door reveals a secondary, clear, glass door through which you can see the fire and allow heat to flood into the room. The warmth and flickering light from the flames are particularly welcome on grey and drizzly afternoons.


Old Flames comments on the Esse 990

Three large capcity ovens with different cooking temperatures combined with vintage good looks and optional hot water boiler, make the 990 a popular choice.


Both the hotplate and oven temperatures are regulated by controlling the burn rate of the fuel. The glass door of the firebox makes it simple to monitor the fire and see at a glance when more fuel is needed.

And if that's not enough? You can even barbecue directly over the hot embers with all cooking smells swiftly disappearing up the chimney! (Just be sure to use clean, untreated wood).

When it has been necessary for the fire to be completely extinguished for cleaning or servicing, the 990 is able to quickly reach cooking temperature once again, even from cold.

The 990 can be specified as a solid fuel cooker and is also available as a model with domestic hot water boiler: the 990 WD is able to maintain a tank of hot water with minimal effect on cooking temperatures.
