The Ironheart has convection panels in the side of the cooker that radiate warmth like a wood-burning stove, while managing to cook your meal. 47.8 litre capacity oven, six-pan accommodating hotplate. The Ironheart is a favourite among many – including the River Cottage cookery team.
Cooking off-grid has never been easier: the massive 47.8-litre oven chamber utilises the raw power of your fire directly. The oven chamber sits adjacent to the main combustion chamber saving space and drawing the maximum heat from the fire itself, all the while heating your interior and water.
A six-pan hotplate allows you to fry, simmer and boil on these gargantuan top surface plates, complete with lids for when not in use. This controllable range cooker has been designed with efficiency at the fore.
Cast-iron has been renowned for its heat retentive properties for centuries, absorbing and then emitting the warmth of a fire over a prolonged period, far longer than steel, so you can get the most out of your fuel.
The Ironheart has a multifuel grate allowing you to burn either wood or coal. This puts you firmly in the driver's seat of your cooker, whether you prefer the reassuring crackle of the logs or the warm glow of the coals, every taste is catered to.
