A cooker is one of the most important kitchen appliances you'll invest in. Choosing the right one is a tricky decision but we are here to help. Our large range includes models to suit every budget and cooking style including range cookers, gas cookers and electric cookers.
There are several really important factors to consider when choosing a cooker for your kitchen. The shape, size and set-up of your kitchen is key, but you'll also need to think about the number of people you'll be cooking for, and weigh up the benefits of going for a gas oven, electric oven or dual fuel oven.
Finally, if you decide on a gas cooker, look for a cooker with a flame failure device (FFD) A cooker with a FFD will automatically cut off the gas supply if the flame goes out. This is now a legal requirement that came into force on the 1st January 2008 and is applicable If you live in a multi occupancy property, e.g. flat, maisonette or student accommodation. Any new gas hob you install after this date must now have an FFD. This term is sometimes referred to as a Flame Supervision Device (FSD)
If you opt for an electric cooker, check your cooker's energy efficiency rating. An Energy efficiency rating tells you how energy efficient your appliance is. It ranges from 'A+' to 'G', 'A+' appliances is the highest level and awarded to the most efficient appliances.
Choosing a more energy efficient cooker is a great way to do your bit for the planet by shrinking your impact on the environment and save money on your fuel bills too. See our Eco guide for more tips on being energy efficient.
