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.

    Bought this stove as we wanted a long and narrow stove that wouldn't encroach in the room too much and assumed esse was a a quality brand. when installed and fire on their was no control on... []

    Stove expert replied: sounds like there was at least one problem with this stove. The best recourse is really to go back to the retailer, who I would expect to rectify a problem like the one experienced with the air control slider.

    Had this stove for 3 weeks with a total burn time of about 60 hours. I've only had to clean the glass once with a scrunched up piece of wet newspaper after a nicotine- colour coating built up... []

    Good screen size, found the inside a bit small but good for a smaller room. Would buy Esse again but bigger one.
