Review of Esse 125 wood burning stove

Great stove

Martin Wray 8 years ago

Having this stove for 3 year now and having it on all winter 24/7 I think its been fantastic. Fire bricks have just cracked in the back and I think its time for a new rope seal now. Dry wood is the key for glass been clean, coal often stains it but dry logs clean it again . The handle does get hot so recommend a glove and the only downfall is the chrome fronts are now black but not rusted. Its been a great buy and looks great as well.
