Range style cookers are an incredible and very useful addition to any kitchen. Whether you are passionate about cooking, or cook to feed the family, you will find these range style cookers very practical and convenient.
These cookers have more features than the commonplace ones. These multiple functions allow you to create a great variety of dishes, from Mexican to continental, with greater ease. Not only that, you will not face any difficulty in using these ranges as they are basically similar to operate as previous cookers. You can do a lot of experimenting with this range too. Be it baking, cooking or grilling, this range allows you to put on your chef cap and create wonders.
Even in these ranges you have the option to go for either the electric or the gas range cookers. Some electrical cookers, like the Bertazzoni, can also be connected to gas if need arises. This cooker has a wide top with 6 burners, controlled by individual knobs. Available in three colors, this cooker is ideal for large families where each member wants something different in a meal. Another electrical range cooker is the self cleaning variety which has a stainless steel finish. This again caters well to large families with its different features.
The gas style cookers have a major advantage in that they are more efficient in saving energy. Also, you may have a power outage, but with these you will still be able to get the dinner ready in time. Many of the varieties in this range perform multiple functions, with many tops, burners and ovens (with multiple racks).
Yet another option is the dual fuel cookers. These overcome the electric gas dilemma by offering both! Yes, you can switch between both as per required. If you are out of either electricity or LPG, you can use the other.
Similarly you can have range cookers with built in timers and LED clock, such as the Smeg Opera. There are various other ranges too, some for suitable for home use and some specifically designed for restaurants. An example of such is the 60cm range with around 10 burners and two oven units. Other options include the Belling and Canon style of cookers.
