Esse Ironheart and baking temperature

While out on our own for a glorious two hours on Saturday afternoon my husband and I found the oven thermometer that we’ve been needing to put inside the oven box of our Esse Ironheart. Why? So that we can be a bit more precise than ‘Cool’, ‘Warm’, ‘Hot’ and ‘Very Hot’, of course! (No more burned banana bread!) Initial readings gave a top temperature of 425 degrees Fahreheit, but we’ll be doing up a little chart with temperature ranges for each of those heat indication labels.  More to come on this shortly.

  1. Hey, can’t wait to see your chart with temperature ranges. I’ve started cooking a little in our oven but only simple items like pizza. I should probably get an oven thermometer too. Have you noticed any big differences between temps on the top shelf versus the bottom shelf?

    1. Hi Sharon – thanks for checking back in. I’m just getting ready another post about baking and cooking in the Ironheart, including our chart with our ranges. I have noticed that the top shelf is generally hotter as much of the heat passes in at that level. Would love to hear about what you’re cooking in the Ironheart!

I'd love to hear your thoughts
