In a legue of its own.

We have bought 2 of these stoves for our house. I was looking at the top of the range stoves and my wife brought me back to earth. For the price of one expensive stove I could almost get 3 of the Esse 1s. It is by far the best stove I have used or owned. Very easy to light, belts out the heat and is much bigger than it looks in the shop. It will take larger logs than you think could go in. For the price it will become a classic and I cant recommend this stove enough. Would I buy it again oh yes. Just love it to bits. P.s Airwash system excellent. Just buy it you won't regret it.
