What Sort Of Cook Are You?
Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 28th March 2016
When it comes to choosing a new appliance, there are many elements to consider. From the size and style to the features, functions and cost, it’s always wise to make a list of everything you need and want. Rangemaster has such a wide variety of range cookers that there’s something to suit every home cook. To help you make your selection, think carefully about the kind of cook you are and what dishes you like to prepare…
Bakers should go for a double oven, as the tall slimline oven with its multiple shelves is perfect for batch baking. If you enjoy making your own loaves, the Nexus 110cm model also comes with a proving drawer – a unique feature on a range cooker, it takes the guesswork out of proving dough with its controlled, warm environment with slots in the base for the warm air to flow.
For those who love entertaining guests with exotic Indian, Chinese and middle Eastern dishes, look for a powerful gas hob with wok burner. A griddle is also handy for flat breads while a teppan yaki plate is worth adding as an optional extra for speedy seafood such as king prawns and scallops.
A range cooker with multifunction and fan oven will cover all bases and offers a flexible solution to suit the whole family. The second oven on the Professional 100, Elise 90, Elan 90, Classic Deluxe 90, Kitchener 90 and Hi-LITE 100 comes with multiple shelves for the big Sunday roast. Rangemaster’s Handyrack is also great for casseroles and large joints of meat, as it makes basting safe and easy, as you won't need to lift the hot, heavy dish out of the oven.
Cookers with a separate grill, such as the Kitchener, are perfect for making late-night cheese on toast or browning dishes before serving. Rangemaster grills are powerful with multiple heat settings and enable you to use the oven and grill at the same time.
The Elan 110 has everything a family cook could want, with six-burner gas hob with two powerful wok burners, a separate grill, full-sized multifunction and fan ovens, handy storage drawer, griddle and Handyrack shelf. It’s the ultimate appliance that will cope easily with everyday family meals as well as more ambitious dishes for entertaining at home.
