GN Espace unveils energy saving electric induction cooker
Galley manufacturer GN Espace will be revealing its brand new OceanChef XL electric induction cooker at Metstrade in Amsterdam.
Built in marine grade stainless steel and incorporating the latest energy saving technology, the new extra-large professional marine cooker is designed with large-sized luxury cruising and charter yachts, typically 60-90ft, in mind.
Manufactured in the UK, the OceanChef XL combines the benefits of induction cooking on the hob with the practical features of a multifunction oven and grill, in a single cavity.
At 62cm wide, the OceanChef XL features a versatile four-zone induction hob. Zones can also be combined into larger areas by bridging them into one or two oval cooking zones. Sturdy removeable sea-rail hob surround and adjustable pan clamps ensure safe cooking at sea.
The oven has a 53 litre capacity that can accommodate a range of Gastronorm dishes and trays like the professional standard full size stainless steel GN1/1 dishes, available from GN Espace. With a maximum heat setting of 250˚C the OceanChef oven can bake. It is fully insulated and has a flush fitting grill, giving extra height and a design that allows cooking on three levels at once. GN Espace says a unique ECO Fan setting reaches the most widely used oven temperature (180°C) in less than half the time it takes for a traditional electric oven to reach its higher equivalent temperature, saving time and valuable electricity.
The OceanChef XL’s energy management system is designed for optimum performance while conserving consumption to a limit of 8.5kW, 25% less than an equivalent domestic four-zone induction hob and electric oven which, until now, has typically been installed on larger sailing yachts.
As well as installation in new builds, the oven can be retrofitted by owners wanting to replace an older cooker. The dimensions are the same as GN Espace’s ubiquitous LPG version of the OceanChef cooker and will fit into the housing of this, and similar, cooker models.
