Size

This depends on the size of your kitchen and your personal preference. Range cookers are all about generous capacity, so you can cook big, hearty meals for lots of people. And, range cooker widths vary from 90cm to 120cm, so the bigger they are, the more flexibility you have to cook several dishes at once.

These days, range cookers aren’t all about the country kitchen look. Unless of course, that’s what you’re after. At AO, we sell a wide range of styles including the traditional type and super-modern, professional styles.

Cookers - gas or electric. Buying Guide

Fuel Type

Gas cooking is more traditional and is said to retain more moisture in your food, whereas electric cooking could give you a more even result across each self. If you want both, the choice is entirely yours. Dual fuel models feature gas and electric in a wide variety of combinations.

Cooking Functions

If traditional cooking is your thing, then you’ll love the more simple top heat, bottom heat and conventional oven settings that many range cookers include. These are ideal for casseroles and slow cooking, as well as baking. If you enjoy being a little more experimental, then look out for models with features like rotisserie roasting for a BBQ effect.
