Esse 990


The 990 represents the evolution in ESSE’s wood stoves. It draws on classic ESSE styling from the 1930s, blending vintage looks 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 a beautifully proportioned cooker in the ESSE collection, we believe the 990 is the cleanest-burning cooker of its kind in the world. Patented technology with twin catalytic converters below the hotplate ‘reburn’ any smoke particles which escape from the fire resulting in miniscule CO emissions of just 0.95 grams – an amazing feat for an appliance which refuses to compromise on performance in any way.

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.

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.

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 990WN comes standard with three ovens and the stunning glass firebox door, and ESSE’s trademark chrome plate hot plate covers.

The 990WD cooker has an additional domestic hot water jacket which can supply piping hot water with minimal effect on cooking performance.
