EK Series: Outdoor Fireplace Kitchen

“For the serious flame grillers”

For those who love to showcase their culinary skills on the grill – the EK Outdoor Fireplace Kitchen is for you.

When designing the EK, Escea sought guidance from renowned chef, Greg Piner, to ensure the fire had all the functionality found in the kitchen.

Greg's expert advice along with the impressive creativity and innovation from Escea’s team of engineers resulted in an impressive ‘fireplace kitchen’ comprised of cooking plates, grills, meat hooks, an ember generator, and even an optional pizza oven accessory.

A favourite amongst families that love to entertain a crowd, when the cooking is done the EK transforms into a roaring outdoor wood fire – beckoning family and friends to share a drink and linger by the flames.

Dual function, this fire is hands-on – with a cooking plate to flame grill your dinner while you bask in front of the flames.

EF5000 Outdoor Gas Fireplace

“For busy lives and spontaneous nights”

Made for busy lives, the Escea EF5000 gives you warmth and ambience at the touch of a button – so summer days can turn into summer nights, relaxing by flame. 

Because the EF5000 is open fronted, there’s no need for a flue – all it needs is adequate ventilation making it perfect for inner city courtyards

And because it's gas, it's low maintenance, there’s no need to chop and stack wood or tend to the fire every half hour – the perfect accompaniment to those spontaneous later afternoon cheese platters.

The EF5000 makes summer easy, so you can make time for the things that matter.
