The electric EC4i has been designed for the home, but has been used and approved by Michelin-starred Chefs and Restauranteurs.
From soufflés and stir-frys to stews and sauces, there is very little this cooker cannot do. It will maintain its temperatures tirelessly and meet the demands of every cookery challenge, time after time.
Unlike other range cookers, where you may have to add a companion model to achieve the cooking capacity you desire, the EC4i has four large ovens housed within the body of the cooker itself.
You can pick and choose the ovens you want to use at any one time as each is controlled independently.
All four ovens are finished in a vitreous enamel for easy cleaning and are especially suited for different purposes so you can spread your culinary wings! There is a fan oven which has been rated 'A' for energy efficiency and is perfect for batch cooking thanks to its uniform temperatures. There are also two conventional ovens, the larger of which has a full width grill and the capacity to roast a perfectly tender Christmas turkey.
There's even a slow oven, which is invaluable for melt- in-the-mouth stews and casseroles.
The only ESSE range cooker without traditional bolster lids, the EC4i represents the next level of professional cooking. It features our biggest hob surface with five induction zones and yet it offers amazing economy and energy efficiency.
Induction only heats the pan, not the hob and surrounding space, so there is absolutely no energy wasted. Induction also offers precise control and extremely responsive changes in temperature.
Four independently controlled ovens and a 5 zone induction hob, with the practicality of electric cooking. We can see why this stove has been approved by Michelin starred restaurants.>
You can even pre-set the induction zones to bring a pan up to the boil and then simmer, so there is no chance of it boiling over.
This model demonstrates how a classic style can never look out of place: the modern induction hob sits perfectly atop this beautifully-proportioned cast iron cooker and the EC4i would be equally at home in a traditional or contemporary kitchen.
The EC4i also has the option of a heated towel rail which can offer gentle warmth at the touch of a button. This cooker is often paired with the Plus 1 (p18) for a choice of two completely different cooking styles.
