Which fuel type should I get?

Whether you want the precise power of gas cooking or the reliable results of an electric oven, picking the right fuel type depends on what kind of cook you are.

Gas flame on hob

Gas

Cook the traditional way with a gas fuelled cooker. The precise power of a gas hob lets you get the perfect temperature to nail that stir-fry, and the gas-powered oven creates moist cooking conditions for succulent roasts and perfectly raised bakes.

Samsung electric oven

Electric

Electric ovens and cookers are the popular choice for the everyday cook, as they’re easy to use and give you tasty dishes every time. Most electric ovens will be fan assisted, meaning they create an even temperature throughout the cavity for perfectly balanced results.

Dual Fuel

Dual fuel cookers give you the flexibility of both gas and electricity. Typically, they’ll come with a gas hob on top for instant heat and precise control over those mouth-watering dishes. And you’ll have the convenience and ease of an electric oven underneath for when you just want a quick meal to see you through the night.

LPG Options

LPG gas cookers are ideal for homes without a mains gas supply, as they are powered by bottled liquified petroleum gas. This means you can enjoy the power and control of gas cooking, even if you don’t have access to gas.

Features

Grill

Standard grills will give your dishes that lovely crisp finish, while a double grill Is ideal for making that extra-large lasagne golden brown. And, a variable grill will let you set the precise temperature for complete control.

Self-Cleaning

From pyrolytic cleaning that burns away food stains, to catalytic liners that absorb grease, modern ovens come with lots of handy cleaning options, so you can put those marigolds away.

Smart

Smart ovens let you cook with a tap of your finger. You can select and adjust settings and keep an eye on your food’s progress, all from the convenience of an app on your phone.

Temperature probe

Enjoy precise cooking with a built-in temperature probe. This clever tech lets you cook meats at the perfect temperature for delicious results.

Steam cleaning oven

Steam

Steam cooking delivers excellent results because it retains the moisture. This means roast meats are perfectly succulent and cakes are beautifully baked.

Lasagne in fan oven

Fan-assisted oven

Fan-assisted ovens use a fan at the back to spread heat evenly throughout every corner. This means those salmon fillets, roasties or cupcakes will be beautifully cooked wherever you place them.
