Leftover turkey? Here’s how to use it up...

Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 21st December 2015

Turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, turkey curry, perhaps even turkey risotto, turkey stew… It can go on for days.  But it need not be a chore.

Planning leftovers, especially with too much turkey can be a pest.  From experience, ordering a full turkey of about 200g per person is plenty (including carcass weight).


Musings on Christmas dinner

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 8th December 2015

Christmas dinner - the most wonderful meal of the year?

I’m going to have come clean on this subject. I have only ever cooked Christmas dinner once. I massively over catered and I over cooked the veg. But, despite the spiced red cabbage mountain left after my attempt I’m not averse to the idea of trying again because you know what? I’m pretty certain that the cook is more critical on themselves than anyone else is of their cooking when it comes to Christmas dinner. In fact how about we don’t call it that? Let’s call it a turkey roast dinner to celebrate Christmas. It’s not your only dinner of the Christmas period after-all and there’s a lot more to Christmas than that one meal. 


Supersized Christmas

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Tuesday, 1st December 2015

They say that good things come in small packages and whilst this is true in many respects, bigger is definitely better when it comes to cooking the Christmas feast. When you consider all the elements that make up this traditional family meal, from the roast potatoes crisp with goose fat to the turkey surrounded by little pigs in blankets, not to mention the vegetables, the gravy and the Christmas pudding, as well as any extra sides and vegetarian dishes, it’s essential to have the biggest ovens you can sensibly squeeze into the kitchen. Rangemaster’s Excel 110 range cooker is guaranteed to take the stress out of the big day as it comes with two large A-rated ovens, a smaller slow cook oven, grill, warming zone, griddle and six-burner gas hob. Take your pick from silver, gloss black, stainless steel, royal pearl, slate or, perfect for the festive season, a mouthwatering cranberry shade to suit your scheme.


Winter Warmers

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 23rd November 2015

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.


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.


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!”


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.


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.


Defrosting Food in your Multifunction Oven

Posted by Alexandra Dibble 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!).
