It’s Everhot installation day!! Today is the day the our brand new Everhot 110i in graphite arrived! Eight weeks of waiting and I can’t believe how excited I am over a cooker! Weighing several kgs it took a lot of effort from the two Everhot delivery guys to manoeuvre her into position. The installation was simple and it did not take long to get her plugged in and up and running.
Everhot electrical supply
In reading about the Everhot and hanging out on the Facebook community page it was obvious people have a lot of questions about siting the electrics. As well as the supply you need so i thought I would include here.
- You require a standard 13amp socket to two standard 13amp sockets depending on the Everhot model you have purchased. The induction models need a separate plug for the induction hob so the 110i we bought needed two 13amp sockets (or a double). On the bigger models it is advisable to have two single sockets and Everhot can advise further.
- Siting the plugs can be trickier, especially if, like us, you have already installed the kitchen. The cables come out of the right-hand side of the cooker and the plus must be situated to the right or left of the cooker and NOT behind it. We had to cut a hole in a side panel, remove a drawer and cut into the back to position the socket. You can see how we did it below.
Once the guys had positioned and levelled our new Everhot we watched while she was switched on, which was a bit of an anticlimax. No crunching noises or flashing lights – just switched on – no issues. We were then given a quick tour of the control panel, ECO mode, three ovens, hotplates (boil and simmer), power grill and the induction hob. It all seemed remarkably straight forward, well at least it seemed so at the time.
Cooking with the Everhot
It takes a couple of hours for the cooker to get up to temperature from cold so we left her to it while we carried on with our normal routine. (it’s very tempting to just sit and stare at her ( a bit like a new baby or puppy)! When we returned some three hours later the kitchen was lovely and toasty and the cooker was ready to go. But we were in a rush and had no idea what to cook – the Everhot recipe book that comes with the range is packed with delicious sounding recipes. Feeling excited we decided on a bolognese which meant we mainly used the hotplates, though we did chance a home-made garlic bread in the top oven.
