Things to Consider When Choosing a Range Cooker

If you’re looking for a range cooker, pause before you purchase! There are a few considerations you need to have accounted for first. Keep reading for everything you need to look for ahead of buying a new range cooker for your kitchen.

Range cooker vs. range-style cooker

When shopping around for a range cooker, you might come across “range-style” cookers. Conventional range cookers are usually only found in farmhouses nowadays, whereas “range-style” versions have their place in the modern home.

These are modernised versions of conventional cast-iron range cookers. Rather than constantly being powered by solid fuel and used to provide heat and hot water (in addition to cooking), modern range cookers typically consist of one or more ovens topped with hob rings. They’re usually powered by either electricity or a combination of both gas and electric.

The phrase “range-style cookers” is being used less and less now, and many manufacturers use the term “range cookers” to describe both types of cookers. But if you come across this phrase, you now know what it means! And unless you want an old-style AGA, this is probably what you’re looking for.


Choosing the right size of range cooker

The size of your range cooker is essential – it has to fit into the designated space in your kitchen. You ideally want a snug fit for a streamlined finish and no unsightly gaps. And thankfully, range cookers come in all shapes and sizes.

Standard sizes are 900 mm (90 cm), 1000 mm (100 cm), and 1100 mm (110 cm) wide, but some models measure up to 1500 mm (150 cm).

There are mini versions available too that measure as little as 600 mm (60 cm) and take up the same space as most conventional ovens. We’ve recommended a few different sizes on this page, so there should be an option to suit everyone!


Electric vs. dual fuel range cookers

You can purchase traditional 100% gas-powered range cookers from a few niche manufacturers. However, modern range cookers (also called “range-style” cookers) are much more common.

These are either all-electric appliances or use a combination of gas and electricity as fuel – electricity powers the oven while gas burners sit atop.

With both modern models featuring electric ovens, your main decision is choosing between a gas and electric hob.

Gas hobs are preferable as they provide more instant and direct heat, meaning quicker cooking and better temperature control.

Another great option is an electric induction hob. These heat your cookware directly, are easier to clean than gas, and are the most energy-efficient option.

Different Sizes of Range Cookers


Cleaning considerations

Although you can purchase smaller models, range cookers are notoriously big. This means you need to invest more time into cleaning your range cooker than you would a conventional oven. Fortunately, many models have additional features that make cleaning that bit easier!

There are two easy-cleaning oven options. Your first is enamel liners which coat the entire oven interior. These provide an easily wipeable surface so less elbow grease is needed to shift stubborn spills.

Catalytic liners are your second option. These absorb and oxidise grease that can be easily wiped away once you’ve finished cooking.

Another option is a self-cleaning or “pyrolytic” oven. These appliances use intense heat to burn grease and other food debris into ash that’s easily swept away.

Most pyrolytic ovens are conventional cookers, but some modern range cookers also feature this convenient cleaning capability.


Range Cooker FAQs

Are range cookers costly to run?

This is a question about range cookers that comes up a lot. Because of their size, many people think that range cookers must be very expensive to run.

However, while this might have been true a few years ago, range cookers have moved on a lot since then. For example, most of the range cookers on our list below have an energy rating of at least A.

This isn’t uncommon either. Most range cookers on the market are just the same. Some of the bigger, pro range cookers drop down to a B rating.

Still, most range cookers on the market today don’t cost that much to run. You likely won’t notice any increase in your energy bill switching from a traditional gas or electric cooker to a range cooker.


How much does installation cost for a range cooker?

The installation cost for range cookers varies greatly. It depends on where you buy your range cooker, the type of fuel, whether you have the right fittings and many other things.

While we can’t give you exact prices for all models of range cookers and situations, we can offer you this. If you are buying a range cooker from AO that uses a fuel type already set up in your home, it will cost £100 for installation (at the time of writing).


Can I install a range cooker myself?

No. At least, we would certainly do not recommend it. Range cookers are powerful and are far more complicated to install than simply plugging them in at the wall. To ensure that your range cooker is installed and works correctly, you must get the pros in.


Are there any major differences between range cookers?

Range cookers can differ when it comes to fuel types, size, number of ovens and hob rings and the size of the oven. Plus some range cookers have fancy features too.

Choosing the right range cooker can be tricky if you haven’t owned one before. However, think about what frustrates you with your current oven.

Is the hob limiting? Do you wish you had more oven space, or just a bigger cooker altogether? Finding out what you don’t enjoy about your current oven can help you choose a range cooker that will be perfect for you.



Well, there’s our list of range cookers that you should check out right now. If we had to pick just one to recommend it would be the Rangemaster Toledo + TOLP90DFFGB/C. It’s stylish, spacious and reasonably priced for a range cooker. It’s also very highly rated by users. If you didn’t find the range cooker that you desire on this list, never fear.
