Review of Esse 300 stove

Lovely Stove

Kevin Howell 4 years ago

I''ve had my Esse 300 for close to 15 years and I love it.

The only thing I''ve ever had to replace is the glass.

I would like some technical advice though?

When you replace the glass there are two metal plates holding the glass at the top. I think this is a part of the airwash system.

The inner metal plate is curved.

Which way should this plate be fitted, convex or concave?


Stove expert replied: The inner metal plate needs to be fitted so the curve is farthest away from the glass. Great length of service for this stove.
