The Esse Ironheart wood cook stove is pricier than most cookstoves on the market but when you understand the difference in the way it's built you'll understand the reason. Europeans value quality cooking appliances and openly design them with generations of use and durability in mind. The ovens design offers gentle and indirect heat that won't dry out your food. Pizzas, for example, will be piping hot and evenly cooked from edge to center while toppings remain moist and the bottom is baked to perfection. Cooking temperature can be reached in approximately 60 minutes from cold start. The firebox is spaciously designed to accommodate 18" wood lengthwise. By using larger wood, you can avoid restoking the stove while baking and struggling to regulate the changing temperature.

Esse Ironheart Wood Cookstove - Overview
Esse Ironheart Wood Cookstove - Changes to the Stove
Oven temperature gauge reading is vague and seems to read higher than actual oven temp. Needs a very hot burn to get oven up to high temperature. We can get an overnight burn with coals in the morning if loaded correctly. After a long learning curve I am happy with my purchase. I regret not purchasing the water heat exchange unit.
It is extremely well made. Engineered to heat a small or large home.
Cooking surface and oven space are perfect for most things.
The oven will hold two quarter sheets or two 12 cup muffin pans.
two 10 inch cast iron or other pans, baking evenly and does not dry things out. With a moderate fire the stove top stays 400 - 500 all the time. The oven is always 300-350 and with a larger log will heat higher and maintain temp.
It burns clean and efficiently. With the wood box adapter it is deep and makes no ash mess. The hob lids helps control the amount of heat into the room.
It puts out an incredible amount of heat. In a large house, positioned well, it would be an awesome heat source.
In our home we build small fires. Our house is a 1500 sq. ft. two story timber frame. The stove is in a 2x6ft. alcove ( we had to build out to meet code for the chimney, making distance from two outside dormers.) We have put registers at ceiling level to move heat passively. Heat is even throughout. Fires are easy to start with very little paper and kindling. It keeps our house warm all night with just a small fire. The volume of iron and steel continue to heat long after the fire is gone.
You would not want to load this stove up with a full box of wood without understanding how it works.
I spent a year deciding on this stove. Obadiah's helped me with many ???? and made it easy when purchasing. I am grateful for their knowledge and integrity.
I can't say thank you enough for your help with the stove and your guidance in constructing the alcove for it, Woody. I will be recommending Obadiah's Woodstoves to others.
