Best Range Cooker 2021 – Buyer’s Guide

Buying a cooking appliance is a major kitchen investment, but most people find that they get more value out of their range cookers than they ever did out of their normal size freestanding cookers.

Within a relatively compact kitchen space, ranges offer loads of versatile cooking space. Because they can have up to seven hob burners and four or five ovens/grills, they are perfect for large families or keen home cooks.

Our team of experts have tested and reviewed over 60 models, listing the good and bad, in order to help you with your pre-purchase research. Here’s what our reviewers thought:

Best Induction Range Cooker

Induction ceramic cooktops use the latest induction technology in order to heat up pans directly, minimising heat wastage. These hobs look very smart and are becoming increasingly popular and many range-cookers are now coming out with induction hobs instead of the traditional gas ones.

Arguably, they don’t give you the traditional range look though. But in terms of ease of use, they completely trump the other options.
