Now that the evenings are drawing in and it’s dark by about 4.30pm, our thoughts turn to keeping our homes warm and cosy. Whether you’re looking forward to family nights in or having friends round for a catch up, there are plenty of ways to give everyone a warm welcome this winter.0 Comments
5 Step Plan to cooking for a party
Posted by James McIntosh Wednesday, 18th November 2015
Four chickens cooked in one oven at a time. That’s right, Four. Or 4 lasagnes’ or 4 cottage pies or even 4 quiches. And I don’t mean small ones. That’s just one of the features of selected Rangemaster range cookers.
With Christmas coming up and family occasions to cook for, most of us host a big meal at least once. It can be stressful planning not only what to cook, but also to ensure it’s all cooked perfectly when served. Ovens can cook more than one thing at once, but do be careful of putting items straight from the fridge into the oven as it will lower the temperature. Rangemaster ovens will come back to temperature quickly though.0 Comments
Best of British: Scotch Eggs, Mature Cheddar Cheese and Pickle
Posted by Supper Club Monday, 16th November 2015
Whether you consider them a guilty pleasure or a well-deserved treat, the scotch egg is very British and utterly delicious.
Usually confined to the realms of picnic basket or pub snack we’d like to see the scotch egg given the status it deserves! This recipe for scotch eggs, mature cheddar cheese and pickle would make a fantastic dinner party starter; packed with rustic charm and hearty country flavours it’s sure to be welcomed to the table with nostalgic shouts of, “I haven’t had one of these for ages!”0 Comments
Defrosting Food in your Multifunction Oven
Posted by Alison Baker Monday, 2nd November 2015
We have probably all defrosted food in a microwave oven with varying degrees of success as the food often becomes partially cooked which isn’t what we want at all! The key to defrosting is to not apply any heat but microwaves do apply heat!
Defrosting food in your Rangemaster multifunction oven is easy; just put the food in the oven and select the defrost function and away you go! If your oven shelves are clean you can put the food directly on to them, if not, put the food on a rack over a tray, this way the air can circulate all around the food (check out my blog on oven cleaning!).
Edible Sparklers for Bonfire Night
Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 3rd November 2015
You don’t need worry about wearing gloves to eat these sparklers and you don’t need a bucket of water to put them in. However, I’m sure dipping them in a mug of hot chocolate wouldn’t hurt. If you’re short of time this ideas works perfectly well using bought breadsticks in a packet (the grissini type). The biscuit base here will make for a sweeter treat though.0 Comments
Welcome to the Supper Club
Posted by Supper Club Wednesday, 28th October 2015
At Rangemaster we think mealtimes should be about more than just eating. Don’t get us wrong, we love finding new recipe inspirations, discovering an unusual flavour combination or learning a cunning culinary trick. But what we’re really cooking up in the kitchen is quality time. An excuse to sit down with friends and family for a much needed catch-up – even if it’s just at the end of the day.
So to help us all get a little bit more of this good stuff in our lives we’ve created the Supper Club – a hub of foodie ideas from our kitchen to yours. For our first blog, we’re excited to share our first Supper Club collaboration with Adele Jarrett-Kerr, the Mystery Box Challenge!
Trick or Treat Pumpkin Chilli
Posted by Supper Club Wednesday, 28th October 2015
We’re just kidding, there’s no trick in our pumpkin recipe, just a hearty treat of a chilli to warm your cockles on those chilly October evenings.
While we may not celebrate Halloween with the same extravaganza as they do in the US, pumpkin carving is still a brilliantly fun tradition – especially if you’ve got little ones – but this year, rather than throwing out all the flesh you scrape out of the inside, keep your left overs and turn them into a delicious meal for the whole family.0 Comments
P-P-Pick Up A Pumpkin
Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 26th October 2015
I don’t buy into the idea of celebrating ghouls and ghost-type things for Halloween, but I’m more than happy to embrace the recent influx of pumpkin-based products to our supermarkets. In fact, in the interests of honesty, I should tell you that I have used a large amount of the UK’s pumpkin supplies in aborted attempts to make pumpkin-filled treats.0 Comments
The Rapid Response Function In Your Rangemaster
Posted by Alison Baker Monday, 19th October 2015
This function does exactly what you would expect it to – it heats the oven up quickly!
It is really useful for one of those 'oh blow it, I forgot to turn the oven on' moments that we all have! Rapid Response heats the oven up faster than normal with the extra heat from the element in the top of the oven. All you need to do is select Rapid Response - R - on the multi-function control knob and then the temperature you need; the oven will then heat to your chosen temperature faster than normal. The light on the fascia by the R symbol will come on and will go off when the temperature you have selected is reached. The fan function then takes over.0 Comments
