Review of Esse 700 stove

Esse 700 Vista

Rod Hunt 5 years ago

Latest 700 is the Vista with a single door giving an unrivalled view of the fire. Air wash is superb and the heat output excellent. Just had one fitted and it exceeds expectations. One tip is to spray the vermiculite boards black as the airwash is so good that you can see them like a cardboard box otherwise. Easily heats a 10 m x 8m room with high Victorian ceiling.
