ESSE was established in 1854 but our story actually starts even earlier…
ESSE is the UK’s longest-standing stove manufacturer, having been established way back in 1854.
This proud British company has a rich and interesting heritage which our onsite museum bears testament to; from a shipwreck in the Atlantic, to Florence Nightingale, James Bond and the famous range cookers and stoves we love so much today.
Each one of our modern stoves can trace its ancestry back through the decades to ESSE’s original models. The selling points in the very first brochure still hold true today: “Great economy in point of fuel, great economy in point of cleanliness.”
