Range Cookers

In one form or another, the combination concept that range cookers boast has been a familiar sight in family homes for hundreds of years. Modern interpretations certainly uphold the heritage of these appliances, many of which having a retro or classic appearance that will really bring the feeling of traditional, good old fashioned home cooking into your home.  Range cookers are available in a range of sizes so no matter how much space you have empty to accommodate a new cooker you can benefit from the range cookers practicality and décor enhancing presence.

The Majority of range cookers tend to be an average of around 90cm in width, but can be as high as 110cm. The size of the unit will of course determine how many cooking areas you have. A Large range cooker for instance can have as many as eight hobs or burners on top and four main compartments including two ovens and extra storage. You can also get much smaller models that would be that same size as a standard freestanding cooker, but have the style and class of a range cooker, an excellent option if you don’t have much room to work with but still want to make a design statement.

There are four main varieties of range cooker fuels that can be found on the market and of course here at Chapman’s. Here is a quick overview of each type:
