What to consider when choosing between range cookers
Whether we are cooking or entertaining, the kitchen is the heart of the home. When it comes to cooking for family or friends, a range cooker is the ultimate appliance to help you create culinary delights with ease.
Range cooking gives you flexibility to cook in different chambers at different temperatures. This means you can crisp your roast potatoes at the same time as your Yorkshire puddings are rising and the beef is browning. Typically, a range cooker has up to 50% more space than a standard oven. This is ideal for larger families or couples who like to entertain. There are many things to consider when purchasing a range cooker. Are you looking for dual fuel, ceramic, gas or induction? Other key decisions are colour, size and style. There really are more options than ever before. Here we take a look at the different trends for range cooking to help you decide!
Range cookers have been given a modern makeover. Now they are just as suited to the modern kitchen as they are in a country cottage or farmhouse. Mercury provide the perfect blend of contemporary design and functionality. Offering a variety of colours from Indigo to Oyster, Mercury range cookers are instantly recognisable. Whether you’re looking for a statement piece, or a seamless look to tie in as part of the furniture, there is a range cooker to suit your requirements. Each Mercury cooker has two high performance ovens and an energy efficient rating of A or higher. You can enjoy cooking with peace of mind that your bills will remain low. Why not continue the modern appearance with a sleek induction hob as opposed to gas or dual fuel? A slimmer model would suit more compact kitchens that are often found in newer homes.
When picturing a range cooker, what often springs to mind is a bustling farmhouse kitchen designed to feed many hungry mouths. A classic range cooker does exactly that! Cooking a Sunday dinner for the whole family needn’t be a chore with a brand like Rangemaster.
