The 32-litre oven under the fire is massive, it’s a true oven that has ESSE’s patent wrap around heat can bake the perfect pie, and roast the most delicious leg of lamb.

The ESSE Bakeheart is design approved for passive homes

The Bakeheart is an elegantly proportioned wood-fired cooking stove that provides room-filling radiant heat, a graduated temperature cooking hob and a generous baking oven.

While its rugged cast-iron design and simple styling may give the impression that the Bakeheart 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, with a clear view of the dancing flames through the glass door to the firebox, the wood-fired Bakeheart provides ample heat to keep a cottage kitchen warm and toasty.

While our standard range cookers are designed to contain heat, the Bakeheart 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 32-litre oven and hob.

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.

Combine with a domestic boiler and the 5kW Bakeheart is a wellspring of hot water while the hob and oven will cook a limitless range of wholesome and hearty dishes from warming casseroles to heavenly home-baked bread.

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

Whether it’s providing heat and hot water in a bothy up in the mountains or wood-fired pizzas on the verandah at the beach house, the Bakeheart can be counted on to deliver heat and sustenance, day in, day out.
