Easy Does It

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 23rd March 2015

If there’s one household chore that I really dread, it’s cleaning the oven. I’m all for keeping a tidy home and sometimes it can be quite therapeutic giving the carpets a vacuum and mopping the kitchen floor. I also love doing laundry on a spring morning - pegging out clean linens on the washing line in the garden is really satisfying and you get a lovely fresh fragrance on your clothes once they’re dry. But when it comes to cleaning the kitchen, it’s the workhorse that demands the most attention. Our cookers are used day in, day out, whether it’s preparing meals for the family, coping with large-scale entertaining or heating up a late night snack – so it’s no wonder they need a thorough clean every now and then. The good news is that with Rangemaster, the cleaning is done for you…

Pyrolytic Oven Cleaning

Posted by Alexandra Dibble Monday, 16th March 2015

As the Home Economist here at Rangemaster the most frequently asked question, by consumers, is “how do I clean my oven?”

Cleaning the oven or ovens usually instils dread in us!  No-one likes to do it but isn’t it lovely when the ovens are clean!  I have heard of some Rangemaster consumers keeping one oven for roasting etc. and the other for baking, which in theory means you only have one oven to clean as roasting is usually the cause for most oven soiling.  This seems like a good idea. Please let me know if you do this and how it works for you.

Pancake Day!

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 16th February 2015

I’m sure you’re like me and when it comes to Pancake Day the big kid comes out.  Then perhaps the mop comes out, as one may have landed on the floor?  (Clean up is made so much easier if you have a dog).

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, as I’m sure we all know, was originally a Christian festival to use up ingredients prior to Lent, 40 days before we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at Easter.  I always find it a good time to install a little self discipline. I overeat at Christmas, break my New Year’s resolutions by the 2nd January, then feel bad that, for me, it is not ‘new year, new  me’.  That’s why I like the tradition of Lent, it gives me a chance to prove to myself that I can be disciplined for a short period of time.  And I do find this instils an inner confidence in myself.

Sea Bream en Papillote

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 9th February 2015

When I was pondering what recipe to make on theme of “food to share with your valentine” I initially thought of a fondue. I like the idea of food where you can’t try to be on your best behaviour – you’re going to get messy and see the ‘real’ valentine, not the perfectly mannered dining partner you might encounter during a meal in a high end and terrifyingly well mannered restaurant. Fondue had one thing right and one thing wrong. Right – it’s easy to make, so one of you isn’t going to feel like they’ve been working away all evening when they should be relaxing. Wrong – I don’t know about you but a vat full of cheese is more likely to make me want to curl up under a duvet than engage in sparkling conversation (or whatever). So, here is my alternative suggestion for messy but tasty eating: Sea Bream en Papillote.

Trout With Almonds in the Handy Grill

Posted by Alexandra Dibble Wednesday, 4th February 2015

Trout cooked with almonds may be considered a classic recipe nowadays!  I do remember first cooking this when I was at college which was rather a long time ago! But it is still delicious cooked this way, crunchy almonds and tender moist trout flavoured with fresh herbs and lemon. And don’t forget how good oily fish are for us!

Shake Up Your Wake Up for Breakfast Week

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 26th January 2015

The 25th-31st January is officially Breakfast Week. It’s also probably about the time when all those healthy eating intentions that you had at the start of January are starting to slip. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and I particularly love a leisurely brunch with a good coffee and some friends (or the crossword). I recently had something similar to this at my favourite brunch spot in London and it occurred to me that while many brunch recipes are rather sugar or fat laden, this one is really quite healthy. So, I though Id see if I could re-create it. I reckon it’s got 2 or 3 of your 5 a day, the eggs provide good protein to keep you going and the yoghurt adds a tart creaminess whilst providing all the benefits that live yoghurt gives.

Once the New Year is underway, it’s time to brush off those New Years’ Resolutions and start as you mean to go on. For many of us, that means embracing a whole new healthy lifestyle, including moderating the way we cook. Okay, so the gym membership may not make it past March but I find that changing cooking and eating habits is a lot easier – and more fun, too.

Christmas Breakfast

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 16th December 2014

What do you normally have for breakfast on Christmas day? It’s a tough one – do you go light to leave space for extra stuffing (literally and figuratively) later on? Do you go decadent and rich? Do you wish you could go decadent and rich but really grab half a slice of lukewarm toast as the kids drag you to “see what Father Christmas brought?

 

After carefully considering the festive break-fast I thought that what would be most useful was a customisable option. Something that can be made easily and eaten either slowly in conjunction with a bucks fizz, or in a flurry of shredded wrapping paper with a mug of tea.

It's Not Too Late. Don't Worry.

Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 9th December 2014

Stir-up Sunday was a few weeks ago and traditionally this was the day one made their Christmas pudding, however it’s not too late to make one, it just won’t be as mature in flavour as it could be.  Relax, put the tree up, deck the halls and get ready for Christmas.

It’s Halloween!

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 27th October 2014

Spooky time of year, no sooner are we back at school than its half term time again for teachers and students. But having kids at home is fun, but they may need a bit of entertaining! 

In London where I live, one can’t help the night time ramble of ‘trick-or-treat’, my car is parked on the street and I do like to keep it clean and shiny, so I ensure I’m well stocked with sweets.
