ESSE granted patent for “surround heat” system
ESSE, claimed to be the UK’s oldest stove and range cooker manufacturer, and still building its products in the UK, has been granted a patent for the “surround heat” system used on the company’s electric range cooker models.
The electric elements “wrap around” each oven to achieve even temperatures, and it is these surround elements that have been recognised as unique and granted patent protection.
Sales Director Mark Blewitt said: “Our surround heat system means that the elements in our electric ovens offer the same radiant heat as our solid fuel, oil, wood-burning and gas models. Temperatures are consistent throughout the space, which means you don’t need to turn dishes or swap shelves during cooking, and you can even place dishes directly on the base of the oven to cook.
“The additional benefits of ESSE’s electric models include the fact that they are fully controllable, they offer fast heat up times, simple installation (just plug in and cook), a full-width grill, dual hotplate and versatile ovens, as well as low running costs.”
The new ESSE electric 990 EL (pictured) has a large dual hotplate (cast iron and induction), a full-width grill, two independently-controlled ovens and a warming oven which can be used for slow cooking.
