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

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.
It's All A Bit Manic
Posted by James McIntosh Thursday, 27th August 2015
I don’t have any children, my lifestyle would not cope. I don’t find myself a selfish person or one that is adverse to children, I just enjoy travelling too much. Facebook, that thing that overtakes one’s life with pictures of every social gathering and new pair of jeans that enters one's life, available on all devices, has left me screaming this past few weeks. Friends buying school uniforms online, pictures of children sporting their uniforms pre-school and I’ve even seen a service where a photographer will come to your house on the morning of the first day at school.0 Comments
Best of British: Fish, Chips & Mushy Peas
Posted by Emma Line Wednesday, 29th July 2015
Synonymous with towns like Brighton and Bournemouth, fish, chips and mushy peas brings a quintessential taste of the British seaside to your dinner table. So then, with summer holiday season in full swing, what better way to start our Best of British recipe series than this traditional coastal dish? It’ll have you reminiscing about stripy deck-chairs, bracing sea air and rickety wooden piers.0 Comments
A Bowl of Delicious Salad
Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 20th July 2015
My late father was a farmer, he used to complain heavily when my mum would serve a ‘lovely salad’ for dinner after a hard days work in the fields. Dad had a point... Well, back then anyway. Generally, in the 1980’s, salads were bowls of iceberg lettuce with tomatoes and hard boiled eggs, however, today they can be fantastic tasting bowls of summer joy full of colour and flavour.0 Comments
