Cookers are freestanding, you can stand them on their own or neatly between your kitchen units. They come in three standard width sizes; 50cm, 55cm and 60cm. Make sure to measure up your space carefully, before setting your sights on a cooker and ensure it’ll be able to reach the fuel source as well as a plug socket.
Cookers are available in a range of different fuel types including Dual Fuel, Gas, Electric and LPG so you can pick one to best suit your home and needs. It’s much easier to choose a type that’s the same as what you’re replacing for a like for like switch. Make sure when choosing the position of the range cooker that it’ll be able to reach the fuel source as well as a plug socket.
Fan assisted ovens can speed up the cooking process by around 10 minutes for every hour its used, which means you’ll be able to turn off the oven sooner. With a glass door you’ll be able to check on food without interrupting the temperature inside, so the oven won’t need to work hard to regain that temperature and there are some ovens with double, triple and even quadruple glazed doors, to lock in heat, making them more energy efficient. With an oven that has a programmable timer you’ll be able to set the start and finish time of the oven, so no time will be wasted, making your cooking more energy efficient.
