Review of Esse Ironheart cooking range

Don''t buy this stove

Denis Hawthorne 5 years ago

Utter trash. Nothing but hassle. Baffle replaced several times until I purchased a cast iron one. Design fault not mine. My firebox has split, fractured across several inches. Not repairable. Replacement parts almost impossible to get. I''ve requested "H" bolts several times and have been assured by their agent in Canada they will be mailed. When I was first in contact with Ease agent he said I was burning the stove "Too hot" Perhaps I shouldn''''t have lit it, it looked nice when first new.

Stove expert replied: What a shame that this has caused such an issue, spares should be available even if delayed until sent from the UK. The Ironheart has such a good track record and I have never heard of one splitting before.
