ESSE 905 WN 90cm Woodfired Range Cooker

The ESSE 905 WN is a woodfired cooker designed for today’s kitchen: clean burning and easy to use.

In simple terms, you could load the firebox in the morning and just place some extra fuel on before cooking dinner. Another load before you go to bed would keep it burning until morning, giving the potential to keep the fire going for several days or even weeks at a time. The 905 is quickly back up to cooking temperature, even from cold.

Oven temperatures are even and can be adjusted to your preference via a sliding mechanism just inside the firebox door. This door also features a second latch setting which secures the door in a slightly ajar position. This allows extra air to be drawn into the firebox and is helpful during lighting, or if you want to ‘boost’ temperatures. Ash removal is necessary, but with good quality fuel this might only be once a month.

The Esse 990 WN offers the flexibility to bake in a moderate oven, while flash-frying or searing on the hotplate.The flue controls on the 905 WN help further allow an impressive level of control when cooking. You can choose to send heat from the fire around the ovens and via the hotplate before it reaches the flue, or you can bypass the full circuit and heat the hotplate without affecting the oven temperature.

The 905 WN looks beautiful as a stand-alone appliance, but it is so well insulated that you could install it as part of a fitted kitchen. It has a combined oven capacity of 80ltrs and its distinctive hotplate can hold six pans.The 905 WD cooker has a domestic hot water boiler which can supply piping hot water with minimal effect on cooking performance.

With your own clean, dry wood supply, the ESSE 905 could allow you to virtually live off the grid.
