Perhaps the biggest attraction of a range cooker is that they’re designed to have
a large and flexible cooking capacity, which means that you can prepare food for large families, dinner
parties and more, all with relative ease.
The smallest range cookers (90cm width)
usually have at least two good sized ovens as well as a grill and five burners on the hob. Larger
variants can have significantly more space, with an extra compartment that can be used as either an oven
or for storing pots, pans and baking trays. This is especially useful for when you’re preparing
multiple dishes at once that require different cooking temperatures, or you need to keep certain dishes
warm whilst serving. It also means that despite having plenty of capacity, you can easily and
efficiently cook for just one or two.
In addition to the oven space, range cookers also come with built-in hobs, ranging from
five to seven burners. This gives good flexibility to those who require a lot of space for keeping pots
on the boil, or pans frying. Woks are easy to use too thanks to the extra large burners, and some range
cookers come with a griddle plate, which is
a healthier alternative to frying food. You can read more about range cooker sizes with our handy guide on
