A review of three of the world’s best range cooker manufacturers
Once upon a time a range cooker meant either an Aga or a Rayburn, and that was that. Today there’s a huge choice of beautiful ranges, from contemporary masterpieces with sleek brushed stainless steel good looks to traditional enamel range cookers in beautiful jewel-like colours. Whatever your choice, expect innovative features, considerable fuel efficiency and a satisfyingly green, environmentally responsible outlook.
Bosch Kitchen Appliances
Take Bosch. Way back in 1886 Robert Bosch founded the Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering in Stuttgart, Germany, which eventually became Robert Bosch GmbH, a firm that has always taken innovation and social commitment firmly to heart.
The Bosch HSB745055E 90cm single oven range cooker is excellent value for money as well as being small and neat enough to fit into a smaller kitchen. And their smart double electric oven has an enormous 83 litre total capacity, a flexible five-burner gas hob, a secondary oven with a capacity of 31 litres, an LED clock, automatic timer, integral cooling fan and loads more excellent features, all created with typical attention to detail and superb Bosch quality throughout.
Brittania Kitchen Appliances
Then there’s Britannia, a leading range cooker specialist that provides a wide choice of gorgeous-looking classic and contemporary ranges, smart built-in ovens, hobs and cooker hoods, all carefully made with superb design and build quality in mind.
The great value Britannia E-line dual fuel multifunction double oven cooker, for example, delivers a wonderfully sleek and modern stainless steel touch to your kitchen, with an LCD clock, digital programmer and handy adjustable legs for choosing the idea height. And it's adaptable for LPG too! This range’s two ovens sit side by and have tough double-glazed, removable doors and even removable glass so it’s really easy to keep clean. The second oven is a conventional one with a grill and rotisserie, and both ovens have a clever top and bottom finishing feature for browning foods nicely.
Falcon Kitchen Appliances
The Falcon brand is synonymous with professional cooking and their collection of domestic cookers come with sturdy, attractive, highly practical British design and top class build quality for decades of loyal service. And every Falcon range cooker enjoys a full three year warranty, perfect for professional cooks and amateurs alike.
The Falcon 1092 Deluxe dual fuel range cooker, for example, combines the versatility of two generous ovens plus a 17kW stainless steel gas hotplate, a 5kW central burner, four 3kw side burners and a separate 2.3kW dual circuit grill with handy variable heat settings. Plus clever, discreet storage for pots and pans, easy cleaning and height-adjustable legs.
If you’re in the market for a brand new range, it looks like you’re spoiled for choice!
