Innovative new 990 ELX range cooker provides extra space and versatility for creative cooks

ESSE’s exciting new 990 ELX electric cooker combines the convenience of electricity with the performance and versatility demanded by passionate foodies.

The new induction hob offers fingertip control for precision cooking while the large rectangular hotplate opens up a whole world of new possibilities.It can be installed in any kitchen with a double plug socket and because it does not require a chimney or flue, the 990 ELX can be positioned almost anywhere – including as a free-standing ‘island’ unit.

The ELX incorporates a three-zone induction hotplate for instant heat on demand and a large plancha-style steel hotplate. Rectangular heat-conserving ‘weightless’ hotplate covers incorporate recessed hinges to maximise usable hob space while doubling as easily cleaned splashbacks.

The 990 ELX will boil, braise, simmer, roast, fry, griddle and sear simultaneously – there’s no need to juggle a host of secondary appliances like griddles or steamers to get the results you want – the 990 ELX takes care of it all.

Both top and bottom ovens feature patented wraparound elements and a ‘wall-to-wall’ grill element and all ESSE electric range cookers incorporate a moisture control vent which maintains humidity for baking or vent moisture for dry roasting.

In line with the rest of ESSE’s electric product range, the 990 ELX offers rapid heat-up times (less than 20 minutes from Slumber mode to 200˚C) and a programmable timer for the ultimate in efficiency and control.

And in day-to-day use, the 990 is reassuringly energy-efficient thanks to the performance of the patented oven’s fast heat-up time from slumber mode and power share technology – which directs energy only where it’s needed.

ESSE is the first choice for professional chefs, food writers and enthusiastic amateur cooks around the world. You’ll find our cookers in Michelin-starred restaurant kitchens and cookery schools where reliability and consistency really matter.

ESSE continues to innovate and lead the market with a commitment to high quality product design, British manufacturing and performance at ESSE.

The 990 ELX is a true all-rounder; a modern classic that’s ready to plug in and get to work in any setting – from country farmhouse kitchen to contemporary open plan studio diner.

The 990 ELX is available in a choice of 20 beautiful colours including contemporary Matt finishes. RRP: £7950. For further details, visit
