Review of Esse 200 stove

200 XK

A very nice stove. Looks good and robust and certainly gives out a lot of heat. Not tried logs, but it burns anthracite and excel. Sometimes get a bit of smoke back in the room when you stoke it up, but not a big problem. I would recommend this stove.

Stove expert replied: If smoke coming back into the room persists this should be investigated further and rectified.
