ESSE unveiled its much-loved Ironheart cookstove in 2004 to celebrate 150 years in business.
This model combined the quintessential qualities of the company's stoves and range cookers and quickly became a firm favourite with the team at C4's River Cottage.
The British-built ESSE Ironheart has now been launched as a gas model which is 80% efficient.
It offers traditional style combined with modern convenience and faster heat-up times; from cold, the oven can be up to roasting temperature in just an hour.
It has a maximum output of 6.7kW and offers a realistic log fire effect, virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
With no need for an ash pan, the manual control for the gas Ironheart is housed behind the lower left door.
