The EC2i illustrates how ESSE believes an electric cooker should work: there's no need to compromise on classic British design in order to achieve energy-efficient performance and modern control.
This electric range cooker shares the same ergonomic layout as more traditional ESSE models but it has been designed as an on/off appliance.
Beautiful bolster lids help this range cooker to offer traditional aesthetics, but rather than insulating an 'always-on' hotplate, they lift to reveal an innovative induction hob.
Induction hotplates offer the most economical and safest means of cooking on the hob: induction only heats the pan itself, not the hob - so you cannot burn yourself on the hotplate and there is no energy wasted by heating the space around a pan. Induction allows cooking temperatures to be altered instantly and with great precision. The top of the EC2i is extremely easy to clean as the nature of induction cooking means that spills and splashes do not become burnt on.
Like all ESSE enamelled cookers, the EC2i is constructed from cast iron. We have used this material continuously for generations because nothing beats cast iron for strength, quality, durability and heat performance. The age-old material still stands up to every new challenge we set for it.
The EC2i and EC4i electric, cast iron range cookers both have ovens rated 'A' for energy efficiency.
The EC2i has a spacious plate-warming oven behind the left door, and on the right, two generous ovens which can be operated independently of each other. These are finished in a vitreous enamel for easy cleaning.
The top oven houses a full-width grill, behind which the oven ceiling has a self-cleaning finish.
Just because the EC2i works as an on/off appliance, it doesn't mean you have to do without any of the comforting warmth associated with leaning against a range cooker (we all do it) - the EC2i's optional heated towel rail can offer welcoming warmth at the touchof a button.
The EC2i is particularly well-suited to being paired with the wood-burning Plus 1 for even more cooking and heating options.
