Esse 350 stove

The Esse 350 stove will fit into a standard fire place opening as long as the fire back has been removed.

It has a bigger fire box than the 300 model , so can take longer logs.

The Esse 350 stove needs an airvent into the room.

This stove is a convector model.

  • Firebox not under guarantee

    3 months ago

    I have made a mistake going for the Esse SE350 I was told this model was a 7kw convection stove. Only if you burn solid fuel, 5kw if you burn logs. The complete firebox is not guaranteed, only... []

    Stove expert replied: Glass and consumable items are not covered my manufacturers, the glass bloom (if a milky appearance) is likely to be caused by overdrawing of the stove and is not a manufacturing defect (it may be an installation problem or operator error). It would not happen on one firing but over a period of time and means that usage is exposing the stove to higher than normal working temperatures. This should be investigated fully as further damage may occur. You should be able to have the stove slumbering with a gentle flame, with short periods of fast burn and not a raging fire all the time.

  • Looking at the Esse 350 Se inset - advice

    Sulli 69 3 years ago

    I am considering one of these to replace an inset gas fire (Magiglo). Couple of things, it's a large room, 10m x 4m approx, is the 7 KW Esse 350SE a good option. Also, we wanted to get one of those Eco fans to circulate the heat, is there a lip at the top on the inset that one could sit on? Thanks... []

    Stove expert replied: The stove fan needs to sit flat on top of the stove so I do not think a fan would be suitable for this model.

  • Owned since 2008. Saved us a fortune and works great!

    Clive Turner 3 years ago

    We now use a 50/50 mix of small anthracite and homefuel nuts, which give a perfect balance of heat and ease of lighting. We also burn some logs and wood that we get free. The coal costs around... []

    Stove expert replied: A stove running 24/7 should have at least two short periods of fast burn (15 - 20mins) twice a day to burn off any deposits produced in the slow burning periods. A stove should be let out once a month to check that the airways are clear. A Carbon Monoxide Alarm is a requirement for any stove installation and should be retrofitted if there is not one currently installed. Great review and good savings being made.

  • Esse 350SE Stainless Steel

    We had this stove installed about a month ago - we chose it because we had an existing opening which we didn't want to alter too much, so this was the only stove which fitted that we could see... []

    Stove expert replied: Warranty on stoves does not cover glass however, normally after such a short period of time a replacement would be supplied either by the manufacturer or by the supplier perhaps at a reduced rate as a gesture of goodwill. Regarding the problems you are experiencing when lighting on a still day may be due to the flue which should be investigated further as there are ways to improve the draw. Room ventilators are a good option for providing the extra air required for a stove, have you got this or just a vent direct through the wall?
