Review of Esse 700 stove

Esse 700

Louis Hart Hart 8 years ago

The Esse 700 is a cracking stove. The heat is amazing and left me stunned. Got it 3 years ago and it's my second Esse.. Throw some dry wood and a couple of logs any you are set for a couple of hours. Air wash is good but I seem to get condensation inside the fire. I live in a 400 year old Old hall and it has no problem heating the massive living rooms. The firebox is very generous and after sales is great! I would strongly recommend!!!

Stove expert replied: Condensation in the firebox may be down to damp wood, a moisture meter is recommended so that customers can check that the moisture content is less than 20%.
