A new golden era for ESSE
From new concepts to new colours, Master British Stove Maker ESSE is unveiling a host of exciting stove developments from the company’s Lancashire factory.
As well as classic Black, ESSE will now offer stoves finished in Gold, Bronze, Ruby, Iron Grey and Ash White.
ESSE has also unveiled an innovative electric ignition system which is the first of its kind in the industry. Sales Director Mark Blewitt explains: “The historic charm of a traditional woodburner will never go out of style but that doesn’t mean to say that these stoves can’t benefit from the latest developments in modern technology.
“ESSE’s wood-burning stoves can now be ignited with the click of a switch or remote control!
“This ingenious British invention is simple to use and means an end to firelighters; simply load your dry logs in front of the air jet, close the door, press the remote and the five to eight minute lighting cycle begins.
“As well as being clean and safe it is a great solution for ‘cold flue’ or poor draught installations as it pre-warms the flue. It is also ideal for older or less mobile homeowners who don’t need to get down on their hands and knees to light their stove.”
The ESSE ignition system retails for £490 and can be specified with most ESSE stoves. See it in action here.
ESSE engineers continue to build on more than 160 years of experience to ensure that stoves are constantly evolving in both style and performance. From smoke-exempt models and after-burn technology, to gas versions of classic woodburners, cookstoves, electric ignitions, log stores and striking new colour finishes – ESSE stoves continue to fire up the imagination and combine timeless style with modern, convenient, and energy-efficient performance.
There are wood-burning, gas and electric stoves in traditional and contemporary styles, and customers can choose the perfect inset, free-standing, wall-mounted or even flueless model to suit their home.
The quality and reliability that encouraged Shackleton and Scott to take an ESSE to the Antarctic, is the same hand-built, British quality that ESSE owners enjoy today.
