Review of Esse 200 stove

Beautiful and easy to use

Fiona Bumpstead 11 years ago

This is a beautiful looking stove. Easy to use & clean - the glass door stays clear and gives a lovely view of the fire. It heats our 5.7 x 9m lounge with ease (we have to open the door sometimes as it can get too warm!). We cannot rate it highly enough and would certainly buy the same again. Top tip - leave a through draft ie door open when first lighting as occasionally the smoke comes back into the room otherwise (it might be our flue but I thought I'd mention this anyway).
