The EL 13AMP

This stunning cooker's hotplate tells you the whole story.

A traditional cast iron hob, nestling up to an innovative induction zone. Yes, this really is a chance for passionate cooks to enjoy the "best of both".

Made, like every ESSE, by dedicated craftspeople here in Barnoldswick, Lancashire, the EL 13AMP looks and feels robustly timeless, with its two large ovens just waiting to welcome a ridiculously tasty hot-pot or that new sourdough bake you've been meaning to try.

Yet, at the same time, it's positively stuffed with advanced technology, for maximum energy-efficiency and "intuitive" ease-of-use - including our unique "power share" feature, which takes temperature control to a whole new level.

  • Top oven 42 ltr
  • Bottom oven 30 ltr
  • Integral full width grill
  • Cast iron hotplate

990 EL

Big brother to our EL13 AMP, this is the perfect choice for the larger kitchen, and for cooks who get their greatest satisfaction from feeding hungry hordes. Just like its smaller sibling, it offers the "best of both" - traditional cast iron solidity, combined with innovative electric flexibility. With three sizeable independently controlled ovens, and a full width integrated grill, this 100cm range cooker will never cramp your cooking style - whatever the recipe, however many you've invited.

The flat hob top is designed to unleash your creativity, too, with a cast iron hotplate for griddle cooking, as well as a large induction hob for instant boiling temperatures.

The controls for ovens and hobs are neatly housed behind the upper left door. And, of course, with no flue needed, your 990 EL can be positioned wherever you want, provided there's a 2 x 13amp power supply.

From melt-in-the-mouth meringues and slow-cooked stews to deliciously crispy roast potatoes, this cooker is a true all-rounder; an ESSE classic that's ready to plug in and get to work in your kitchen.

ESSE Plus 500

Electric Companion Hot Cupboard

A versatile left-hand-side companion to any of our beautifully crafted cast iron range cookers, this adds two valuable strings to any serious cook's bow: perfect slow-cooking, and simple but highly effective plate-warming.

The Plus 500 is beautifully simple. With its two capacious warming cupboards, which maintain a temperature that never wavers from 85-90°C, it couldn't be easier to keep everything at precisely the right temperature - no matter how many you're cooking for.

But we're not just talking about a versatile "supporting actor". The Plus 500 is perfectly capable of taking centre stage, enabling you to turn out mouth-watering slow-cooked dishes in your sleep. Or, for that matter, while you're at work.

Another lovely touch: the Plus 500 features an anodised black top, which can be heated, to keep your dishes warm immediately before serving.

As with all our electric cookers, plug-in-and-cook convenience comes as standard: all you need is a 13 amp socket.

  • Standard 13Amp Source
  • Only one plug socket required
  • 400 watt element
  • Temperatures reach 89-90°C
  • Anodised black aluminium top

The ESSE 500 EL

Electric range cooker

An Electric Esse Range Cooker that slots comfortably into any kitchen.

The small and perfectly formed wonderfully versatile mini range cooker that can be incorporated within a fitted kitchen or stand alone in even the smallest galley or compact city kitchen-diner.

Comprising separate top and bottom ovens, 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 dials for ovens, grill and hob are neatly housed in a standalone external control panel which can be wall-mounted or freestanding. And, of course, with no flue needed, your 500 EL can be positioned wherever there's a 13AMP power supply.

Both the generous ovens - designed to be deep rather than wide to retain heat - can be used independently and incorporate ESSE's patented surround heat engineering for even baking results every time. The grill and hotplate are also independently controlled.

Suitable for use with all pans, the powerful heat of the 33cm hotplate is perfect for direct to cast iron hob cooking while the bolster lid creates a "steam and sizzle" environment.

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 is compatible with a fitted kitchen or as a standalone appliance. The vented ovens do not need connecting through an external wall giving you more freedom to position your ESSE.

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

Both top and bottom ovens feature patented 3kW wraparound elements and a 3kW "wall-to-wall" grill element provides even temperatures and consistent performance all the way across the top oven.

In standby/slumber mode, the entire hob heats up - ideal for keeping dishes warm.

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.

  • Up to three pans can be used simultaneously on the hotplate. Suitable for direct to cast iron hob cooking. Bolster lid creates a "steam & sizzle" cooking environment.
  • Supplied with a slimline external control panel (350mm wide x 110mm high x 65mm deep), with 1.5m cable that can be wall mounted or stand alone on a worktop.
  • Both the top and lower ovens can be used independently. The hot plate and grill are also independently controlled.
  • Both ovens have moisture control vents that can retain moisture for baking or create dry heat for crisping roast potatoes.
  • Durable and powerful 3kW surround elements for oven, grill and hotplate = energy efficiency and even better cooking.
  • Designed and hand built in Britain by dedicated engineers drawing on the knowledge of more than 160 years of ESSE stove design.
  • Available in a choice of 20 colours.
  • ESSE 5yr guarantee from warranty registration when purchased through an ESSE specialist retailer.
