Wamsler Cookers

High efficiency solid fuel cookers. 

Wamsler Central Heating Cookers are high efficiency solid fuel cookers that are able to duct heat into your water supply, a stovetop jug, the lounge, and a succulent joint of roast meat at the same time. Renowned worldwide for their fine engineering and exhaustive list of functions, Wamsler was first established in Munich, Germany in 1875. 

By this point, they certainly know what they're doing.

wetback options and central heating models for running radiators.

All available models are easy to use, provide excellent performance and will look great in any kitchen.
