Our Guide to Cookers

Whether you’re baking bread, whipping up a batch of cupcakes, or embarking on a full-scale Sunday roast for a family of six, your cooker is the all-singing, all-dancing culinary engine of your entire kitchen. Roasting, grilling, frying, slow-braising—these days, most modern cookers can do the lot. 

But which one is right for you and your family?

Well, much depends on the size of your household, how much cooking you do each day, and, of course, the size and dimension of your kitchen. There’re certainly plenty of options on the market and an abundance of styles, configurations and heat source choices to consider. 

So, let us guide you through the potential minefield of cookers and ovens out there and discover which one is right for you.

Cooking on gas

Gas cookers remain the go-to option for anyone with even a hint of culinary enthusiasm. For the budding home cook, they’re an absolute must. The beauty lies in the instant, easy-to-control heat which can be used with a variety of different pan types. Whether it’s steel or copper, gas hobs will make frying, sautéing, broiling, poaching and boiling a veritable breeze. The hobs can be deep-cleaned within an inch of their lives, too, thanks to their ability to be quickly dismantled.

Induction hobs

At one time just the reserve of professional and commercial kitchens, induction hobs have become increasingly popular as home cookers in the last decade or so, thanks to their ease-of-use, their rapid heat response, and quick cleaning properties. Also, because of their economic use of heat, induction hobs are also incredibly energy efficient. For the environmentally conscious out there—or anyone looking to shave a few pounds off their utility bills—this is a smart choice.

Induction hobs work by heating the pan directly by means of a spiral copper coil positioned beneath the glass surface, which then transfers energy straight to the pan. The coil doesn’t start kicking out heat until a magnetic iron pan comes into contact with it. The induction hob’s efficiency stems from the fact that the glass doesn’t need to be preheated before cooking. It’s instant. And, from a safety perspective, when the pan is lifted, the hob cools. A great all-round cooker with plenty of advantages and practical features.
