Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to start planning that long overdue get-together with family and friends. It may not be barbecue season every day, as we can never rely on the great British weather to supply the sunshine. But that doesn’t matter when you have a Rangemaster range cooker at your service. With so many models to choose from in a range of different styles, each design brings professional-style cooking to your kitchen and alfresco dining. So, no matter if you’re a novice home cook or an aspiring chef, there is a range cooker to suit every culinary need.
Take the Rangemaster Nexus Steam shown above. Available as dual fuel and induction, this flexible range cooker allows you to whip up all sorts of dishes that guests are guaranteed to love. From seared salmon, steaks and seafood to charred pineapple and melon for dessert, there’s nothing you can’t do on the Nexus Steam. It has a dedicated steam cavity for healthy cooking that retains food’s vitamins, nutrients and flavour, as well as oven roasting, batch baking and rapid cooking. This multifunctional piece of kit can also grill, griddle, boil and simmer and there’s even a proving drawer for homemade bread. If you like the energy efficiency and fast response of an induction hob then the induction model is for you. Check out the griddle that comes with the cooker, which is perfect for summer entertaining. Lightweight and easy to remove, it’s made from cast iron so it’s durable and hardwearing and it comes on rubber feet to protect the glass hob during use.
For a timeless look, the new Infusion model shown above comes in three widths – 90cm, 100cm and 110cm - as well as a choice of dual fuel or induction. This simple and clean-lined cooker comes in six colours for classic and contemporary kitchen spaces. Guests will be wowed when you present them with spicy marinated meat, fish or vegetables on wooden skewers cooked on the removable Teppanyaki Griddle. This Japanese-style plate is perfect for healthy cooking and it fits snugly over the burners on the dual fuel model. What’s more, cleaning it is easy thanks to the non-stick coating. A double fan oven and glide-out grill also offer plenty of additional cooking space for sweet and savoury dishes.
If you’re planning a new kitchen in time for late summer, consider adding sliding doors that open out onto the garden so you get that inside-out look that’s perfect for entertaining. When you can open up the kitchen in this way, it not only lets in so much light and air but it also allows for an easy flow between the kitchen and garden. Family and friends can mingle more easily and help themselves to drinks, leaving you free to catch up with everyone. The stunning kitchen above features Rangemaster’s Elise cooker with its exquisite French look and gorgeous China Blue finish. All sizes and fuels feature a multifunction oven with seven functions, perfect for crisping pizza bases or baking soufflés when you want to show off! There’s also a fan oven, handyrack, storage drawer and glide-out grill.
The Rangemaster glide-out grill is a wonderful feature on all its range cookers. Just imagine mouthwatering grilled lamb steaks or chops with a fresh salad or mushroom rice on the side. The grill pan trivet has two height settings for different thicknesses of food while variable heat and smooth telescopic runners make it easy to keep an eye on cooking progress. The Esprit design above also includes a slow cook oven ideal for comforting casseroles and stews once autumn gets underway.
No summer party, no matter how big or small, should be without chilled wine or bubbles for guests. Rangemaster has just launched a fabulous new collection of wine cabinets just perfect for entertaining. The undercounter models come in Black or Stainless Steel in 30cm and 60cm sizes. Wine is kept in optimum condition thanks to a number of features such as two independently controlled temperature zones, an anti-vibration system, UV filtered glass door and UV-free light.
To keep all your ingredients, party platters and dishes cool, you need Rangemaster’s Deluxe SXS fridge freezer. Available in four finishes, it comes with a host of innovative food preserving technology. Vseal is a vacuum seal feature ideal for food storage or sous vide cooking, while the COOLPAC removable chiller caddy is perfect for cold beers. Now you’re ready to get cooking and chilling and send the invites out. Have a great summer!
