Review of Esse 350 stove

Esse 301 inset

D. Adam 12 years ago

Comments for the ESSE 301 which is similar to the 305. \nEasy to fit into a small traditional fire-place without really needing to add a chimney liner. Just make sure that the hearth gives the door clearance to open and of-course insulate the fire back with home-made aluminium foil / rock wool envelopes to give maximum heat output. \nThis stove's convector system really works well to deliver 'red hot' air into the room, even with a small fire burning.It burns best on small logs and they last a long time compared to using an open fire.\n
