Esse 100 stove

The Esse 100 is a 5 kilowatt multi fuel stove. It has 1 plain door with a big glass in it.

The Esse 100 is tall and wide but relatively narrow so you get a very large glass window with a relatively low heat ouput. The Esse 100 is therefore a good choice of stove where you want a big window but not too much heat or where there is a restricted depth of hearth.

The Esse 100 is made of steel and cast iron.

The Esse 100 SE version is approved for woodburning in smoke control areas.

  • Esse G100 gas fire stove

    I have had this fire two and a half years it has never worked properly I could sit trying to light it for 40 minutes. Door glass cracked had to order a new one 58 told it was normal for this type of fire Would not recommend this fire waste of money.... []

    Stove expert replied: Faults with any stoves should be reported initially to the supplier which in turn would be fed back to the manufacturer which in this case is Esse, if the supplier is not able to rectify the problem. Esse would then send out their Gas Engineer so this review seems strange when you say it has not worked in the time you have had it! Have you reported the problem, was any action taken by the supplier etc? Glass in stoves can crack at any point, it is something that is not covered by the manufacturers warranty and is not specific to this stove.

  • Baffle plate

    5 months ago

    Had this log burner in for 9moths now and company we bought it from went bankrupt so we can not go back to them.The baffle plate has bent really badly so needs replacing, but I cannot find out... []

    Stove expert replied: Spares can be purchased on line and the manual has been sent to your email for guidance on removal of the baffle plate. As this has distorted in such a short time you are advised to get the installation checked as you may have an over-drawing flue that is subjecting the internal components to higher than normal working conditions.

    We bought the 100SE which we thought was just a log burner, but is actually a multifuel stove. Its actually wider and narrower than most 5kw stoves so looks like a much higher capacity stove... []
