We have a showroom showcasing all the features built in appliances have to offer, here’s some useful hints and advice to help you. Ovens – The first consideration when buying an oven is to decide what you want it to do. There’s much more possible than simply heating up food – as you consider models higher up a range more features become available. For instance basic models may offer a simple fan oven & grill combination but more sophisticated models will offer other features such as easy clean facilities and multifunction ovens which allow the user to select settings which mimic pizza ovens or rottiserie ovens. Built in ovens – Available as single or double options. We find that built in ovens are popular because they can be fixed at a height that is suitable for the person using the appliance. Double ovens have two separate cavities that is ideal for preparing dishes that require different temperatures. Slot in cookers With advances in design and size options, slot in cookers have become a popular focal point for today’s kitchen. We offer a variety of fuel types and sizes to accommodate all modern work units. As with Range Cookers, once a size is chosen a fuel type needs selecting from the following: All gas whether it be natural (mains gas) or LPG (bottles) Dual Fuel a combination of gas and electric. Electric ovens and a gas top are the preferred mixture. Electric with either a ceramic or induction top – both tops are finished in glass for a smooth surface area. Here’s a useful tip… An induction top works using a magnet so It’s worth checking that your current pans are suitable to use. You can find out by running a magnet along the base of the pan to see if it sticks – if it does your pans are good for use!
