Review of Esse 525 stove

Not impressed

Coleen Scargill 6 years ago

my log burner had been fitted by esse with iron screws, my glass cracked..............no replacement offered or in stock at esse when I needed it..

I received new glass at cost to me of £48 with instructions informing me of the correct screws to be used. Contact with esse to get correct screws..................YES THEY WANTED ME TO PAY FOR THESE!
