My favourite Rangemaster function
Posted by Alexandra Dibble Thursday, 2nd June 2016
I have been asked to pick my favourite function on a Rangemaster but I can’t choose just one function, so I am going for the multifunction oven and all of the functions therein!
To explain why, I think it will be easier for me to describe cooking something in the multifunction oven which will use 3 of its functions. An all-time favourite – a quiche or a savoury tart, is a good example.0 Comments

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.0 Comments
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
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!).
It's Curry Week!!
Posted by Emma Line Monday, 19th October 2015
This week marks National Curry Week and here at Rangemaster we can’t contain our excitement. Seven days to enjoy a vast array of different curries varying in flavour, spice and sauce! 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
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

HEALTHY HOBS – HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT COOKER AND HOB COMBINATION TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS
Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 5th January 2015
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.0 Comments
