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 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!).
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
It's Curry Week!!

Not only are they delicious they are easy to prep and cook on your Rangemaster range cooker too, utilising the various specialist features that make a Rangemaster so special.
The Rapid Response Function In Your Rangemaster
Posted by Alexandra Dibble 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
Winter Is Coming...
Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 13th October 2015
But the good news is it has not arrived yet. Anyone who watches Games of Thrones will know that line only too well. Last week I had the privilege of touring the locations of the Game of Thrones set in my native Northern Ireland. Places I used to visit as a child with my parents on Sunday afternoon drives, however they have now been turned into mass tourist attractions. “The Wall”, which is the cold face of winter, is a quarry, outside of the old port of Larne where one used to board the ferry for the 13 mile trip to Scotland.0 Comments
Ascot Festival of Food & Wine & Chatsworth Country Fair
Posted by Guest Blogger Wednesday, 16th September 2015
The Rangemaster Cookery Theatre made an appearance at the Chatsworth Country Fair and Ascot Food & Wine Festival on the weekend of the 4th and 5th September. Chatsworth is always a wonderful event attracting over 100,000 people over the 3 days, the biggest event of its kind in the UK, located in the grounds of the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth House.
Meanwhile, for the fourth year running, TV Celebrity Chef and Personality James Martin of BBC’s ‘Saturday Kitchen’ headlined the prestigious Food & Wine Festival at Ascot Racecourse on demoing some of his favourite dishes on one of the Rangemaster Cookery Theatres located within the main Grandstand concourse.
