Tips For Buying a Traditional Stove Cooker
Remember the good old days when buying a stove was easy?
There was only a couple of options and a few decisions to make and you could have a good quality stove in your home ready to go.
Now though you are sure to learn a new language and spend many hours in front of a computer before the mystery of which stove to buy is solved. Thankfully we have rules, if followed, they will make your life a whole lot easier.
Number 1: The first rule about buying a stove is know your needs. Have a think about what you use your stove for already.
What do you wish your current stove had?
Do you bake a lot?
Cook a lot of roast dinners?
Do you need double wall ovens or a single oven?
Having a think about what you use your current oven for and what you would like to do with your next oven is a great way of narrowing down your search.
Number 2: Consider variety. This goes back to getting what you would like out of a stove. Consider the key features that you love about your current stove and which ones you can live without. This is all about practical needs.
If a feature is ultimately going to save you time and stress in the long run then perhaps paying a little more is wise. If it is just simply a gadget that you have no use for then perhaps not so much but always consider variety.
Number 3: The most important rule, know your budget. You will find that there are many stoves out there offering amazing things at high prices. Be aware of your budget and then you know when to stop looking.

What is a traditional range cooker?
A range cooker is a free-standing combination of a hob and oven and is usually located between kitchen cabinets and other appliances. Traditional range cookers are usually found in country manors or farmhouses as there is a lot of cooking space and heat produced.
They are bigger than an average cooker with more modern designs and functions because their size varies from 70 to 150 centimetres. Bigger classic range cookers can include two ovens, a grill, a warming compartment, or a storage drawer.
What are the benefits of range cookers?
Compared to having an integrated standard oven, having a dual fuel range cooker, for example, in your kitchen comes with many benefits.
Why Should I Buy A Range Cooker?
So, why should you buy a dual fuel, electric range cooker? As we have mentioned before, there are many considerations to take before purchasing a new stove- but look no further because we are here to help.
Factor in any requirements you have for the capacity, design, durability, and aesthetic you want. Depending on what you choose will dictate how much space you have to cook, where the focal point of your kitchen is, how long the cooker lasts, whether it is automatic or manual, and whether it is fuelled by electric, or dual fuel.
You should search for your ideal range cooker by looking at functional aspects first and styles second. Let style be the factor that narrows down your final choices.
When looking for a traditional range cooker, you will be looking for one with a conventional aesthetic. The aesthetic of the cooker will dictate whether you have a different layout of two ovens or one massive oven recess.
Alternatively, a customisable range cooker could be the option for you if you cannot find the right model or design.
Lacanche-branded range cookers allow you to specify the size, layout of the induction hobs and ovens, fuel type, colours, and fit. It is a more expensive option to have a custom cooker built to your specifications.
Take into consideration the capacity of your chosen cooker. If your traditional range cooker takes up a lot of space, then your other kitchen compartments will only be able to take up a reduced amount of space.
Range cookers generally come in the following three sizes 90cm, 100cm, and 110cm. On the contrary, some models can be built up to 220cm wide, such as 4-Oven Aga and Lacanche. They are not ideal for domestic kitchens but are apt for commercial kitchens.
Be aware that the internal size of the cooker is just as important as the external because the amount of food you cook and bake relies on the depth. Most cookers are 60cm deep for optimal cooking, but many models are shallower or deeper.
