When ESSE first introduced its inset type stoves to a pioneering Victorian Britain, they were an instant success. Several models were developed, aptly named Lucesse, Jeunesse and Bontesse.
After the Great War even the anthracite suppliers named their fuel after ESSE; Stovesse cleanburning fuel was born and is still burning today.
An ESSE 300 appeared in our catalogue as early as 1955, with the present 300 range of ESSE
inset stoves inspired by the Furnesse launched in 1993. True to the ESSE way, the modern inset has undergone several transformations to get to the extremely efficient, multi-fuel range of stoves that it is today.
