5 Advantages of Range Cookers over Built In Appliances

Are you looking for a new oven but can’t decide between a range cooker or a built-in cooking appliance? Read on to discover why range cookers have some clear advantages, including some you might not have considered.

Even Cooking Heat – Range cooker ovens are 20-30% larger, providing a steady, even cooking heat and retaining moisture. For lovers of fine food you’ll notice the difference as your cooking is brought to life and dishes cooked to perfection.

Cooking Flexibility – Range cookers offer the space to express yourself. They have multiple ovens so different dishes can be cooked at different temperatures simultaneously. They also have extensive hob space – the Rayburn 600 (featured below) has twin ovens and a hob with space for 8 saucepans. Advanced digital controls also allow you to programme your cooker to come on automatically when you are out, so it is always ready when you need it.


Heat Storage – Range Cookers can provide heat storage, keeping your kitchen cosy all year round and providing a warming heart to your home. The Rayburn 400 series can can heat up to 20 radiators with ease as well as providing all your cooking needs.

Beautiful Colours – If you want a stunning centre piece in your kitchen which looks as good as it cooks, many leading range cooker brands are available in a variety of beautiful colours. For a characterful, handcrafted range cooker in a glorious glowing enamel colour Esse is a great choice. Colours include the delightful Claret Red, Teal Green, Primrose Yellow and Powder Blue.


Yours to Keep – Your range cooker is a lifetime investment and should you move house, you can even take it with you. So although the initial cost of a range cooker may be more than a built in appliance it is yours to keep.
