You may have seen those huge beasts of cookers on display in kitchen showrooms and wondered what they are. Well, those types of cookers are called range cookers and are quite possibly the best types of cookers that you can ever put into your new kitchen, providing that is the style of cooker that you desire.

Here are some examples:

Rangemaster Cookers

Although these cookers are almost twice the size of your conventional built in ovens/hobs that extra space is needed to showcase the awesomeness of what these cookers can do.

Some key features of range cookers are:

  • Single, double or even quadruple ovens
  • 4-7 ring burners
  • Width 60cm-110cm
  • Power used is either Gas / Electricity / Dual Fuel / LPG


Rangemaster are one of the biggest names in range cooker manufacturing and the world’s oldest. They have been making range cookers for 185 years in their UK based manufacturing plant where they have been since 1830!

Some special features of the Rangemaster cooker series are:

  • A griddle plate that attaches to one of the gas hobs that allows you to cook food and allow the fat to drain off as well as getting a nice griddled affect to your asparagus
  • The handyrack that is fixed to the inside of the oven door so that when you open the door the contents of your oven come out with the door. This is very handy if you are grilling and need to turn items over or cooking a joint of roast beef that needs basting or the foil taking off
  • A multifunctional oven to cook your food exactly how you need it
  • A rapid response setting that heats the oven up 30% quicker than a traditional fan oven
  • Available in 21 different colours to ensure a good match for your kitchen

Rangemaster aren’t the only manufacturer of range cookers, other manufacturers that you may have heard of are:

  • Baumatic
  • Matrix
  • Stoves
  • Belling
