Esse 100 stove, page 2 of reviews
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.

After doing a lot of research l decided that the Esse 100 was perfect for me with the look & the style. I have really gone by the book with what l burn on it which is why l am really disappointed... [ read more ]
I have this stove fitted in an extension to the house. It looks amazing with a nice wide firebox which gives the illusion of a big fire although it is narrow from front to back. This is ample... [ read more ]
I am a bit late in writing this review, as I have had this stove for over two years, maybe this will give a more broadened review as most reviews are only after a number of weeks! I work/own... [ read more ]
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... [ read more ]
I added a thermometer yesterday and that is brilliant for controlling the heat to optimal efficiency. I did loads of research over a couple of weeks and these stoves arn't the cheapest but... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Great feedback.
Initially we were pleased with the stove although it always seems to burn quite fiercely. We live in a smokeless zone so bought this as it is DEFRA approved. It burns too high and therefore... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: You may have an over-drawing flue as it appears to have little control and having to replace internal components so soon indicate something is not quite right. A smoke exempt stove will have a bleed of air passing through it at all times but you should notice some change in the control of the stove when the air controls are operated. It might pay to have a flue draw test undertaken to prevent further failures / damage.
We recently (May 2014) had an Esse 100 MF stove installed (cheaper now than later in the year!) We chose the Esse because of the good reviews on this site, we liked to big window and we wanted... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Are you keeping the air wash open? Try lighting the fire and leaving the door ajar until some heat is in the firebox (5 - 10 mins). Was the flue lined, is the house well insulated and if so have you an air vent in the room?
After several weeks of research and comparing reviews we decided to buy the Esse 100SE as it gave the required heat output of 5Kw with apparent good heat control, can be used in a smoke control... [ read more ]
After four estimates and many rushed intakes of breath I decided to source everything myself and saved thousands of pounds. I went for a 5k stove which is meant to heat up a large room, mine... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Good feed back and great to hear that the manufacturer rectified the fault so quickly. Producing heat well.
We bought our little ESSE 100 after reading lots of information on the internet. We live in a smoke-free zone and were limited on what we could buy without having to have the stove converted... [ read more ]
Stove expert replied: Anthracite is one of the hottest fuels that you can use and it may be better to change to an alternative smokeless product, if you over riddle a stove it can shorten the life of the grate system, try to leave a small bed of ash to protect it and empty the ashpan straight away. Do not leave ash to build up in the pan as this can also shorten the grates life expectancy.
