METSTRADE Amsterdam 15-17 November 2022 Stand 03.422
As the trends towards electric boating, sustainability and low energy consumption intensify specialist galley manufacturers GN Espace believes it is very timely to be showing two brand new cooker products at METS, each designed for the highest energy efficiency available to onboard electric cooking. Orders are now being taken for spring 2023 delivery.
(Pictured above): GN Espace’s brand new 2 Zone Built-in Induction Hob (Model HE103) combines traditional easy-to-use rotary controls with the cutting edge design of a low profile hob. The hob has sturdy removeable sea rails and two square heat zones which can be bridged to form into one for big pots and casseroles. Electric consumption is super-efficient – the induction hobs heat the pot and not the Ceran glass – while an integral energy management system ensures that the hob never draws more than 2.5kW. At 45cm wide it is the perfect size for a compact galley while providing a touch of luxury. It is also available without sea rails (model HE104) for a more minimalist look on inland waterways and other flat water areas.
(Pictured above): The second new innovation to emerge from GN Espace is the 45cm wide Levante 2 Electric Cooker with multifunction electric oven. Again boasting all the electrical efficiency that characterises the GN Espace electric cooker range the Levante sports a high quality stainless steel finish and is compact while offering a host of features including two induction hobs and Dual Zone bridging functions. The oven, with two anti-tip shelves, has standard and hot air grill as well as hot air and defrost settings.
“We believe we have a strong advantage as a company in that we focus very heavily on achieving low consumption values without compromising the cooking results, comments Ralph Olingschlaeger of GN Espace. “We achieve this through our own extensive in-house product development experience and very close working relationships with our component suppliers.”
The new models will join a full range of ever-popular current electric and LPG cookers on Stand 03.422 at METS, Amsterdam from 15-17 November 2022.
