On Your Marks, Get Set, Bake...

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 5th October 2015

Once again, Wednesday evenings have been devoted to sitting down, feet up with a cup of tea, a slice of something naughty and The Great British Bake Off on the box. Now in its sixth series, the 12 homebakers have been tested on every aspect of their baking skills, from pastry and pies to bread and baklava. But it’s not just the cookery that I’m interested in. I always love checking out their workstations too – what colour the islands are painted this year, which gadgets and tools they bring into the tent and how they display their tasty treats.



Made in Britain

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Thursday, 27th August 2015

There are many reasons to choose Rangemaster, the world’s oldest cooker manufacturer. One of which is its heritage and the fact that their range cookers are still made in Royal Leamington Spa, 181 years after the very first Kitchener was created in 1830. To celebrate the very best of British, this month we take a look at some of the kitchen industry’s leading UK designs with something for every style and budget…



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. 


Easy Does It

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 23rd March 2015

If there’s one household chore that I really dread, it’s cleaning the oven. I’m all for keeping a tidy home and sometimes it can be quite therapeutic giving the carpets a vacuum and mopping the kitchen floor. I also love doing laundry on a spring morning - pegging out clean linens on the washing line in the garden is really satisfying and you get a lovely fresh fragrance on your clothes once they’re dry. But when it comes to cleaning the kitchen, it’s the workhorse that demands the most attention. Our cookers are used day in, day out, whether it’s preparing meals for the family, coping with large-scale entertaining or heating up a late night snack – so it’s no wonder they need a thorough clean every now and then. The good news is that with Rangemaster, the cleaning is done for you…


Show off your chef skills

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Friday, 7th November 2014

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.


Appliances for open-plan kitchens

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 6th October 2014

Over the past decade or so, open-plan living has become increasingly popular, as homeowners knock down dividing walls between kitchens and dining rooms to create one airy, open space. It not only lets more natural light in but it can also transform a series of poky rooms into a wonderfully spacious kitchen-dining-living area. Before you get the sledgehammer out, always check whether the walls you want rid of are supporting walls as, if they are, you’ll need to replace them with RSJs or steel beams for structural support. A structural engineer will be able to tell you and should also be able to give a guide price for doing the work.


Stuffed Armenian Lavash

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 18th August 2014

Originally I was going to bring you a recipe for pitta bread this month. I wanted something that could be filled with whatever is in the fridge and was easy to make fresh on the griddle. Then I thought about the amount of times I’ve made pitta bread since the first time … I’ve never made it again. Why? It’s nicer home made, that’s for sure, but it’s so cheap and so readily available that it’s just too easy to buy it instead. So I turned to my Armenian friend Briony to find out what their equivalent flat bread was. It’s called lavash (or lavosh) and is usually cooked in a tandoor oven where it is stuck to the side and falls off when it’s cooked.  I’m not sure how authentic my version is – it’s a combination of a variety of recipes I researched, but it’s easy, tasty, and versatile, and you can’t buy it in our local supermarket!


Cooking without recipes, cheerio to waste

Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 6th May 2014

I've seen Love Food Hate Waste demonstrate on the AGA Rangemaster cookery theatre all over the country in previous years. They have so many ideas on how to reduce leftovers and prevent waste at home. As an organisation I think they do a fabulous job, highlighting the public to the concept of saving food and reducing waste. A thing I work really hard to do. I'm great at using up all bits and pieces to make pasta sauces, stocks and freezing lemon wedges to add to my weekend tipple as citrus ice-cubes.

Classic or Contemporary - The Choice is Yours....

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 7th April 2014

When it comes to planning the perfect family kitchen, the first thing to consider is the style. There are two main looks - a contemporary finish with clean lines or a more classic scheme with a country feel, with variations in between.
