Esse CAT Flueless Gas Range Cooker


The ESSE CAT Gas is a range cooker that can be completely tailored to suit you and your lifestyle. Choosing the enamel in your favourite colour and having it installed in the ideal spot in your kitchen is just the beginning of how you can personalise the beautiful CAT Gas cooker.

This cast iron range cooker has a timer that allows you to run it exactly as you want to. For example, during the week you might choose only to have it up to temperature ready for you arriving home from work each evening. At weekend you might also have it programmed for a leisurely cooked breakfast on a Saturday, or a mid- afternoon Sunday roast if it suits your family routine.

The CAT does have the potential to be used as a simple on/off appliance but we recommend using it in 'slumber' mode. This means it can go down to an extremely low setting, which uses a negligible amount of energy - but from which it can be back up to cooking temperature in just 15 minutes.

Old Flames comments on the Esse CAT Flueless

As no flue is required, you have lower installation and servicing costs and more freedom to position your cooker where you like. The cooking performance of a range cooker with added efficiency.


This tireless workhorse of a cooker will cook dish after dish (after dish) without any drop in power and performance. And yet - the two generous ovens and large hotplate are all heated by a single 7kW burner; offering astounding energy efficiency. One of the comments we regularly hear about this cooker in particular is how well its even oven temperatures are maintained over long periods. Perhaps that's one of the many reasons it was chosen for River Cottage?
The catalytic burner within this cooker is so effective that it 'cleans' the gas as it uses it, so you don't even need a flue to vent outside.


It also means that there is virtually none of the smell you might usually associate with gas cookers.

The fact that you don't require a flue also means you are likely to enjoy lower servicing costs and more freedom to position the cooker where it suits you. Every single bit of heat generated is sent to the ovens, hotplate or into the room, rather than being lost up the chimney.

Like most ESSE cookers, the CAT features a large cast iron hotplate which has different temperature zones; simply slide your pan across it to see an immediate difference.

The warm area around the edge of the hotplate is ideal for proving dough, which can then be baked directly on the oven floor for a deliciously rustic, crusty loaf.
