ESSE Range

ESSE at the Kitchen Range & Cookshop

ESSE is a proud manufacturer of cooking and heating appliances which are sold worldwide. Since ESSE began in 1854, the world has seen a lot of change, but the human need for warmth, food and comfort remains the same. Shackleton and Scott relied on an ESSE in the Antarctic, and Florence Nightingale would use no other brand in her Balaclava hospital.

Today, ESSE embrace tradition and innovation. They utilise modern research and technology to design the most energy-efficient range cookers and stoves, and every model is still carefully hand crafted to offer quality, integrity and longevity.

Here at The Kitchen Range & Cookshop, we take pride in personally supervising your order right through from initial deposit to delivery. After all, with this outlay, personal service is paramount.

Your cooker will be delivered to our premises by ESSE and we take over from that point, delivering with care and our specialised equipment, right into the final position. Before leaving, we ensure that everything runs smoothly and your new cooker is working as it should.
