This cooker has a small compact ‘bakers oven’ style build with extreme quality. If you have ever contemplated a wood-burning cooker for your home, but worried you might not want to commit to using it all the time or if you’ve always wanted a cast iron range cooker, but didn’t think you had the space, the ESSE Plus 1 is the ideal solution.

  • New improved hinges – to stop doors swinging

The ESSE 500 Plus1 offers form and function in perfect harmony, made with cast iron and integral hinges which ensure cleaner ‘balanced’ lines.

The Plus 1 features a large firebox with a glass door behind the outer cast iron door. This door has controls to adjust the fire’s burn rate and the clear glass allows you to enjoy watching the flames while more heat is let into the room. The Plus 1 is even supplied with a barbecue shelf that fits within the firebox, so you can grill directly over the hot embers.

This wood burning cooker is the best of both worlds, combining traditional styling with modern technology to create a more eco friendly stove, ideal for smaller rooms. The Plus 1 looks stunning as a stand-alone unit, but we have developed a range of features which make it perfect for fitting alongside another ESSE. Available in a choice of 20 colours and finished to the same exacting standards as all our other cast iron cookers, the Plus 1 can be installed next to your main cooker with a continuous towel rail, kick board and colour-matched joining strip.

Available in Black or Cream colour finish, optional colour options available ex-UK.
