I love the launch of a new appliance and never more so than when Rangemaster brings out something new and exciting to add to its already-stunning collection of range cookers. The new Classic 90 FX is a dual fuel cooker in a 90cm size, so it’s perfect for most kitchens, big or small. Offering the same traditional look and styling that the brand is renowned for, this large 114 litre single cavity design enables you to cook multiple dishes at the same time. If you wish to cook up smaller meals mid-week, simply insert the energy saving panel to reduce the oven size, saving energy and cutting down on energy bills while you’re at it.
The new Classic 90 FX comes in five beautiful colours and two trim finishes – chrome or brass - so there’s a model to complement or contrast with all kitchen décors. Take your pick from Black, Cream, Slate, Stone Blue and Mineral Green. The Black, Cream and Mineral Green are ideal for a classically styled kitchen such as one with painted Shaker cabinets or natural wood grain designs. While for a more contemporary feel, Slate and Stone Blue are sleek and elegant with a modern tone. The cooker’s design is also enhanced by the iconic baker-style window and full width towel rail, classic control dials and an optional mini splashback.
Features of the new A-rated Classic 90 FX include a seven-function multifunction oven, two grill trays, two full-width shelves, three smaller shelves when the energy saving panel is used, four shelf levels and an easy-clean enamel interior. That’s as well as the massive 114 litre single cavity oven!
For flexible cooking there’s a five-burner gas hob that includes a 4kW multi-ring burner for high heat wok cooking and a teppanyaki griddle for healthy, fat-free dishes. The classic design of this family-friendly cooker also comes with triple glazed baker’s window, a full-width towel rail, classic dials for easy operation and a mini splashback. There’s also a timer, minute minder and programmable oven settings as well as a large pan drawer for keeping baking trays and pots within easy reach.
To complement this new addition to the Rangemaster family, here are some lovely accessories and textiles that will look fabulous alongside it…
This sage green tea towel in pure linen will complement any coloured range cooker or kitchen but it goes especially well with the Rangemaster Classic 90 FX in Mineral Green, Slate or Stone Blue. With a hand printed floral design from the Garden Collection at Helen Round, it’s made by a small team of skilled artisans in their Cornish studios and is lint-free so you can dry glasses, crockery and pans without annoying smears or fluff.
This blue and white striped apron is perfect for any home cook or budding baker. Made from coastal-inspired ticking stripe cotton, it has an adjustable neck strap for the best fit and a front pocket to keep utensils handy. Available from Rebecca Pitcher.
Sophie Allport’s Boxing Hares double oven glove features the hares on a duck egg background, perfect for classic and contemporary kitchens. Ideal for giving the kitchen a spring update, on the reverse of the glove and inside each hand pocket is a polyester thermal layer and a handy loop in the middle so you can hang it up.
Cook one-pot stews and casseroles in this Reactive Charcoal cast iron 24cm casserole from ProCook. It has a 4.7 litre capacity so is ideal for families or entertaining and is topped with a smart stainless steel handle. It’s also enamelled inside and out with self-basting dots inside the lid. It’s suitable for all hobs including induction and is oven safe to 260˚C.
We love this oil and vinegar glass and cork bottle set from Garden Trading. Use for seasonal spring and summer salads and leave on the table for guests to help themselves.
This walnut wood mini spice bowl set from Bohemia is hand carved in Morocco from sustainable walnut and is perfect for salt, pepper, spices and nibbles. It’s also a great gift idea for foodies and includes three small bowls, spoons and display board.
You can never have too many chopping boards and we love these Broste Copenhagen designs from Day True. In oiled oak, they come in three sizes and can be used for chopping, carrying and serving from cooker to table.
