Behind the classic 1930s ESSE styling, this is a truly advanced piece of engineering, capable of extraordinary day-in-day-out cooking performance with an absolute minimum of wasted energy. In fact, we believe the 990 WN is the cleanest-burning cooker of its kind.

This 100cm wide wood-burning range is a dream to cook on. With three large ovens (which can all maintain different temperatures), and four doors, there’s room for a larger cast iron hotplate – enabling you to keep more pans gently bubbling on the hob.

This AGA style wood stove is esse’s wood stove

Behind its cast iron door, the firebox features a secondary clear glass door, making it easy to check your fire – and to enjoy the flickering warmth of its flames, as it keeps your kitchen cosy. A mineral fuel grate option is available, if you’d prefer to burn solid fuel.

Returning to the 990 WN’s outstanding energy efficiency, twin catalytic combusts and “reburn” escaping smoke particles, resulting in practically non-existent CO emissions of just 0.01%.

Independently rated as over 85% energy-efficient, it’s also a DEFRA-exempt appliance suitable for burning wood in a smoke control zone.
