more information about ranges...
A Range Cooker is a free-standing unit that incorporates a hob on top and usually one large or two smaller ovens, often with a separate grill too.
There are many different combinations available from a number of manufacturers so understanding how you will use your Range Cooker, where it will fit into your kitchen, colours, fuel types etc. needs some help.

There are many options to consider when choosing a range cooker, but we can help.
When buying a range cooker, the most important aspects to consider are range cooker dimensions, fuel source, colour and style. When it comes to fuel sources there is a variety of options; Oil, Solid fuel, Gas, Electric, Duel or Hybrid fuel. Gas and some Duel fuel cookers depending on your fuel combinations need to be connected by a Gas Safe registered engineer so you need to make sure they are placed within reach of a gas supply.
Depending on your cooker choice your cooker may need to be within reach of a plug socket and some models need to be hardwired into the mains by an electrician. When thinking about your fuel source you also need to be aware that there are two kinds of gas; LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) and natural.
If you are having a completely new kitchen, we recommend that you consider your cooking needs and choose a cooker before finalising the kitchen design.
If you are replacing an existing appliance and you are not looking to change your kitchen cabinets, then you will be more limited in the style and colour you can choose. Not only will the range cooker need to fit the existing gap, it will also need to match the cabinets you have.
In addition to the above, you will also need to consider cooking features, energy rating; and cleaning and safety aspects.
How much space will I need in my kitchen?
Generally the most popular Range Cooker sizes are 90cm and 110cm. However, some makers are now producing a 100cm model to bridge the gap. There is a huge range of stoves starting from just 500mm width to 1490mm, depending on your combinations. Remember though, if placed between kitchen units, you will need to leave a small gap on either side of the Range Cooker for the heat generated to escape.
How do the various makes differ?
All the manufacturers of Range Cookers offer different designs and styles. This includes the number of burners and sizes of each oven. It is important to think about what you will cook where and when to get an understanding of the size and variations you will need. You will find many different colours now on offer to suit most interiors.
