Wamsler 900 series cooking range

The Wamsler 900 range cooker - used to be called the 148 model.

It is a cooking range with a big back boiler - so acts as a room heater & a cooker & runs heats the radiators & hot water too.

You can regulate the boiler size by moving the fire box up and down - if placed high up it will heat 10.000btu only & if placed as low as possible it will provide the full 54.000btu to the water.

You can also regulate the heat to go around the oven or not.

The flue pipe can come out of the top, back or side of the stove

&

the stove can have the oven on the right or the left side.

Wamsler is a German make.

  • Wamsler Solid Fuel Cooker

    John Boyce 3 years ago

    We have a Brown - Centre flue solid fuel cooker - fitted new in 1986 - over 30 years ago. Will burn everything you put in front of it - I mean - in it. Excellent stove when using a combination
    of seasoned timber and broken up pallets together - The quicker you need heat - more pallets - to keep the stove ''ticking over''- use more ''proper'' seasoned timber. ''green timber'' is ok - but stove is much harder to control as the fire is more likely to go out when you go away and leave it on ''Auto-pilot'' - ''Auto-pilot'' works a lot better with seasoned timber - when you do get back to it a few pallets will spring the fire into life again - Green timber - no hope.

    Stove expert replied: 30 years of service is very commendable for a hard working cooking range and it is still going!

  • Much better than any other for wood heating

    5 years ago

    I've been running a Wamsler 900 I got 2nd hand for 16 years and it has been great. Does heating, hot water and cooking all from wood. The whole of the top plate can be used for cooking and
    is controllable by vent positions and raising or lowering the fire grate. A good large oven too. Overall I think Wamsler are far superior to others stoves of this type which for all their mass provide 2 rings/pot positions one hot one warm and no control. The Wamsler output is greater than comparable sized Aga/Rayburn/Stanley options which I've looked at and they wouldn't produce enough to heat our home. Only thing I'd like to add is a glass door for the firebox.

    Took a bit of getting used to but it does exactly what it says on the tin! We run 12 good sized radiators, hot water and cooking off it using wood. Build quality on lids could be better and
    better instructions on how to prevent surface rusting of the hob - which is excellent when compared to Rayburns/Agas etc. Overall a really, really good piece of equipment
