Britannia Cooking Functions Guide

Every Britannia range cooker represents a highly versatile, state of the art cooker designed with your cooking pleasure in mind. Britannia have designed every range cooker with the following special features:


Why wait? Britannia’s unique “Quickstart” feature enables the ovens to reach the ideal cooking temperature of 200°C in just six minutes. This is around three times faster than most ordinary ovens, which can really take the heat off you in the kitchen – especially when you’re pressed for time.

Multifunctional Ovens

Britannia multifunctional ovens will provide you with the flexibility to prepare dishes using the best cooking style for your recipe. By selecting different elements within the oven, the heat can be directed to the required cooking area. All 60cm and 90cm ovens feature the following nine functions:

BOTTOM ELEMENT ONLY – This is for the slow cooking of stews and casseroles and is also suitable for cooking pizzas and sweet and savoury flans.

CONVENTIONAL COOKING – This function is suitable for roasting meats and baking on one shelf only, e.g. roasting joints, breads, fruitcakes

TOP ELEMENT ONLY – Used for the browning and finishing off of dishes e.g. lasagne, cottage pie, cheese toppings on gratin dishes such as cauliflower cheese.

 TRADITIONAL GRILLING – This is suitable for bread and bread-based snacks, e.g. crumpets, muffins, teacakes and Welsh rarebit.

FAN ASSISTED GRILLING – This is an ideal function to cook chops, sausages, chicken portions and mixed grills.

FAN ASSISTED OVEN – This can be used for baked fish, roasted meats and poultry. It is also suitable for frozen potato products and breaded or battered fish and chicken.

TRUE FAN OVEN – This function allows several kinds of food to be cooked at the same time on several shelves, e.g. batch baking of small cakes, biscuits etc.

PIZZA FUNCTION – The lower element ensures a perfectly cooked base, while a gentle all-round heat browns the topping.

DEFROST – For safe defrosting of small items such as fish and poultry pieces. It is particularly suitable for gentle thawing of cream cakes and desserts.


Different speed hobs

Britannia provides a versatile range of gas burners and ceramic cooking zones. The variety of burner or zone sizes provides you with the choice of heat level and size to suit any food preparation style. Please note that all gas burners are convertible to LPG.


A Britannia range cooker quietly gets on with the job. There is no loud whirring of fans or buzzing of electrics to disturb the peace and tranquility, which is very much appreciated in open plan kitchens.

Ergonomic design

All Britannia range cookers are fitted with adjustable feet to enable the height of the cooker to be flush with your kitchen work surfaces, giving a sleek look. A Britannia cooker is made to admire and enjoy, but is also easy to clean. Take for instance the oven doors, which are removable for easy cleaning. Also, integral cooling fans keep the control panel and knobs comfortably cool.
