Esse 500 EL

£4,715.00 Enquire

A compact electric ESSE range cooker, the 500 EL can slot easily into the space reserved for a standard cooker, is ready to go once it’s 13 AMP plug is plugged in and provides the beauty of a cast-iron stove with the amazing roasting and baking qualities of an ESSE range. It also has a standby/slumber mode, using 0.32kW when the room temperature is at 18°C.

Comprising separate top and bottom ovens (both of which are vented and do not need ducting through an external wall), a full-width grill and a generous cast iron hotplate accommodating up to three pans, the 500 EL delivers the plug and play flexibility of a modern cooker with all the style and elegance of an ESSE.

The slim line (W: 350mm x H: 110mm x D: 65mm) external control panel housing the dials for ovens, grill and hob can either be standalone on an adjacent worktop thanks to optional feet, or mounted on a wall, maximising the heated space available on the hob.

Both the generous ovens – designed to be deep rather than wide to retain heat – can be used independently and incorporate ESSE’s patented 3kW wraparound elements and a 3kW ‘wall-to-wall’ grill element, providing even temperatures and consistent performance all the way across the top oven.

Suitable for use with all pans, the powerful heat of the 33cm hotplate is perfect for direct to cast iron hob cooking, and when the bolster lid is closed a ‘steam and sizzle’ environment is created.

Like most ESSE range cookers, the 500 EL can usually be placed on a kitchen floor without additional support or concrete base.

The 500 EL’s individual ovens, grill and hotplate elements work together in harmony thanks to ESSE’s Powershare system, which continuously optimises performance whether a single oven or the whole cooker is being used.
