ESSE is exhibiting once again at the Ideal Home Show this year. Why not pop down and see us at stand 1q40? The show runs from Friday 16th March, to April 1st.
We will be demonstrating the benefits of the beautifully-balanced electric EC4i range cooker, which has four, large, independently-controlled ovens and an energy-efficient five zone induction hob. The EC4i includes everything a modern chef needs, including: slam-shut doors, self-clean ovens, a full-size grill and an ‘A’ rating.
The beauty of the EC4i is that, unlike other range cookers, it does not have to remain constantly on as it heats up so quickly from cold – giving you all the benefits of the best modern cookers, combined with the iconic style of a traditional cast iron range cooker. It even makes use of ‘warm touch’ technology to give the welcoming feeling of warmth associated with an ‘always on’ heat store cooker.
With a generous combined cooking capacity of 124ltrs, the four ovens offer precise independent control, so you don’t have to compromise the way you cook. A stunning focal point – the EC4i has no flue to consider, so there is more freedom of where to place it within any kitchen.
Alongside the EC4i, ESSE is proud to be exhibiting the single-oven ‘Plus One’. This versatile wood-fired cooker can work as a companion module to a larger ESSE cooker, but it is equally at home as a stand alone appliance. It offers the look and feel of a traditional range cooker, without the width. The ESSE Plus One has an oven and hotplate and is available with a boiler for domestic hot water. The centre of the hotplate can even be lifted out in order to cook directly over the firebox – perfect for wok recipes!
Visitors to the ESSE stand will also be able to view the iconic Ironheart – this cookstove is a firm favourite at River Cottage. Alongside the famous cookers, visitors will also see ESSE’s 100SE stove: a beautiful cast iron stove suitable for burning wood in a smoke-control area.
ESSE was established way back in 1854, making it the UK’s longest-standing stove manufacturer and every hand-built British stove can trace its ancestry all the way back to these Victorian originals. ESSE counts some extremely famous names among its client list including pioneering explorers Shackleton and Scott, the ‘lady with the lamp’ Florence Nightingale and, more recently, the famous team at River Cottage.
