ESSE 550

Call for best price



ESSE’s stove range has a stylish new addition – the tall, dark and handsome 550. Based on the proven and super-efficient ESSE 500, the new arrival features cleaner lines, new longer legs and an oversize clear glass window offering an enticing view of the natural flames dancing within.

The unfussy new door design plus longer stove legs – inspired by the iconic ESSE Ironheart cook stove – combine to create a minimalist look that’s bang on trend for an urban industrial chic feel.

Ideal as the focal point of a modern open-plan living space, study or the centrepiece of a cosy lounge, the 550 has an energy rating of ‘A’, and ESSE’s trade-marked clean burn technology enables it to be fired in smoke exempt zones throughout the UK.

The 550 is economical to run and incorporates both primary and secondary air wash controls for precision adjustment of the burn rate and the ability to create some beautiful flame patterns.

EcoDesign Ready and DEFRA exempt for use in smoke control areas.
