    Range Cookers Size Buying Guide


    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.

    Style & Fuel Type

    Range cookers aren’t just for country kitchens. We sell a wide range of styles including the traditional type and super-modern styles too, for the more contemporary kitchen.

And for modern kitchens, check out sleek silver and black models.

    We offer a wide selection of electric, gas and dual fuel range cookers to suit your home. And if you live somewhere where you can’t get a gas supply, some of our models are LPG-convertible. Check the Key Information when looking at a range cooker on our site to find out more.

    Cleaning your range cooker

    When it comes to cleaning your cooker, there are a few different methods. Pyrolytic cleaning works by burning off all grease and grime at really high temperatures of 500 degrees. And once it’s finished, all you need to do is wipe away the ash and you’re good to go. Catalytic liners absorb dirt and grease, which is then burnt off at around 210 degrees. And enamel liners make manual cleaning easy, as their shiny, smooth surface makes grease really easy to wipe away.

    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.
