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.

    Am really pleased with my Esse100se stove. It lights with 6 small sticks and a few scraps of paper no problem. It takes about 5 minutes until it is ready to be closed down. The glass stays clear... []

    Stove expert replied: Smoke Exempt models can not be closed right down as this would mean that the emissions will not comply so overnight burning is normally not possible.

    My Esse 100 stove was installed in January of 2010. I bought it because I liked the rustic styling, in particular the wide glass door and generally pleasing appearance. However, after only about... []

    Stove expert replied: sounds a little like this stove was fired very hot, perhaps on coal, and perhaps with a strong chimney draw. A lot of steel stoves are actually made from 5mm steel plate.
