It may take a while but once you’ve settled on the style you can give some thought to the fuel type, there are a few to consider and as ever there's something to suit everyone. Most of the models are available with either induction or gas hobs.

Which Fuel Type Should I Choose for My Rangemaster?

When it comes to the fuel type you have a few options but this is a very personal choice that will boil down to your style of cooking.

Gas range cookers

With a gas range cooker, there are two types available; natural gas or LPG. Natural gas also known as mains gas is available in most areas so is the most common option. LPG cookers are often needed in off-grid rural areas you’ll have a cylinder or tank of propane gas which is used for cooking. If you require LPG jets for your hob we can supply these free of charge when you make your range cooker purchase, please make us aware so we can post the parts to you.

Dual-Fuel range cookers

Rangemaster dual-fuel cookers feature gas-powered hobs with electric ovens, combining the strength of both. The gas cooktop provides a hands-on experience of open-flame cooking and the electric ovens evenly distribute heat at precise temperatures which is ideal for baking.

Electric range cookers

Electric range cookers with induction hobs are the most popular type, they are the go-to fuel type if your property has no mains gas. You should check your energy supply and fuse to ensure the cooker you are wanting to buy is suitable for your home. All electric cookers should be installed by a qualified electrician.

Benefits of Rangemaster Induction Hobs

Induction is by far the most controllable cooking surface there is. It delivers a very high heat when you need it and it can be gentle enough to melt chocolate directly in the pan. It heats up pans quicker than any other type of hob and the best thing is that you simply wipe it clean after cooking.

The controllability of induction cannot be beaten. It is so easy to simply turn down or turn up the heat and watch as the pan responds instantly. This means you can achieve exactly the right amount of simmering or boiling depending on what you are cooking. 

It will deliver consistency, every single time you cook the exact same amount of heat can be achieved. Because the induction is controlled via a dial on the front of the fascia panel of the cooker it means you can swiftly turn down the heat to stop things boiling over, for example, as there are no touch controls the hob will not shut off if water is spilt onto the hob. Simply wipe up spills and carry on cooking!

Some induction range cookers include the bridging zone which heats the designated zone rather than the surroundings.

Which are the Best Features of a Rangemaster?
