    Range Cooker recommedations 4th Jan 18 at 11:16 AM
    My OH and I are looking to replace our current range cooker as two of the hob rings do not work. However, we have no idea what to look for and what features and brands are things to look out for or things to avoid. With a new mortgage (we only moved in four months ago) we're not looking for Miele prices but would prefer to pay for a quality cooker that will last than the cheapest which may not (unless the cheapest will!). Our only requirement as such is that it must be all electric as we don't have a gas supply. Also, if it has any impact, the current cooker is 110cm wide. Thank you!

    Take the rack out of the grill pan
    Put some tinfoil in the bottom of the pan
    Replace the rack upside down.

    We had a cream dual fuel Rangemaster Elan 110 for twelve years and absolutely loved it. Being shiny enamel, the gas hob/rings were the easiest to clean out of any we looked at - previously we had a smaller (90cm) Rangemaster, possibly the Classic, but that had horrid non-shiny gas hob/rings to which everything stuck like !!!! to a blanket

    We were so happy with the Rangemaster Elan that when we bought our next house that had oil heating/no gas, we purchased the all electric (not induction) model. Again the hob was super easy to clean, but despite having the whole house rewired we found that increasing the temperature of either oven to anything over 180 degrees caused the rcd to trip.

    Not having glass doors was only an issue when cooking yorkshire puds/souffles, lol!

    Imho, the Rangemaster - or at least the Elan - looks more solidly built/better quality than some of the slightly cheaper makes.

    Currently we're looking at the Bertazzoni Professional range, but that's probably more than the OP is looking to spend, although occasionally second hand bargains can be found if you're prepared to be patient.......
