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!).
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
Base Heat in your Rangemaster
Posted by Alexandra Dibble Monday, 21st September 2015
The first time I had a holiday in Italy, I was amazed at the pizza! No thick crust, thin crust or stuffed crust, just beautiful toppings (I seem to remember Gorgonzola on a thin base which was amazing).
Not all of us have the time to make our own pizza from scratch but don’t forget that the ready-made pizza bases are good, just top with some passata and cheese and bake. Pizza that supermarkets prepare in store are good too, you can add extra toppings and more cheese if you like. So much cheaper than a take-away and much nicer!

Here we are, another in this series of blogs covering the functions in your Rangemaster multi-function oven. This time it is CONVENTIONAL COOKING. Sometimes there is confusion over this function, do I mean convection? No, I don’t. A convection oven has a fan, a conventional oven does not (unless it is a multi-function oven), but the fan is not used when this function is selected. Quite why it has always been referred to as conventional cooking, I am not sure, maybe someone out in 'blog land’ can enlighten me! Even Wikipedia offers no reasonable explanation!2 Comments
The Fan Assisted Function in your Multifunction Oven
Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 30th June 2015
This is another in the series of blogs on each of the oven functions you will find on Rangemaster ovens. I hope you have found each of them useful. Don’t forget, if you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
Not all oven manufacturers use the same terminology for each of the oven functions so it is important to know what is happening in your oven when using them. The fan assisted function in your multifunction oven operates using the fan without the fan element; the element in the roof of the oven and another below the floor of the oven produce the heat to cook your food.0 Comments
Fanned Grilling in your Multifunction Oven
Posted by Alexandra Dibble Tuesday, 26th May 2015
This is another in the series of blogs on each of the oven functions you will find on Rangemaster ovens. I hope you find each of them useful, don’t forget, if you have any questions or comments, please let me know. A great way to grill fish, chicken, chops or sausages is to use the fanned grilling function in the multifunction oven. This grilling is done with the oven door closed.2 Comments

Once the nights draw in and autumn is well underway, it’s the perfect time of year to invite family and friends over for a hearty meal. No-one wants to spend too much on going out with Christmas round the corner so entertaining at home is an ideal way to keep socialising on a more informal and inexpensive scale. I’m certainly no Nigella but I’d like to think that I can cook fresh, seasonal ingredients in a very simple yet tasty way. You don’t need to get bogged down in gadgets and utensils or even complicated ingredients – what’s more important is the basic tools for the job and this means investing in a cooker that offers flexibility when it comes to experimenting with different dishes.0 Comments
