Role: Operations Director

Favourite Range Cooker: Fulgor Milano Sofia 48 Professional Series Pyro in Stainless Steel

"I like its rugged, commercial aesthetic, particularly in the Stainless Steel - it creates a bold design that is quite impressive"

This 48-inch range cooker gives a perfect mix of flexibility and performance. It features TWO multifunction ovens - a 125 litre main oven with dual internal fans, plus a range of non-fanned and grilling functions, and a smaller 77 litre oven on the right.

"The pyrolytic cleaning is also a great bonus!"

On top are six professional, brass-bound Crescendo gas burners, with dual control allowing you to adjust the temperature from a versatile 0.35kW up to a sizzling 4.5kW. Alongside this is a handy cast iron griddle, giving you a brilliant cooking surface for larger dishes.

The pyrolytic self-cleaning mode, when in use, reaches an impressively high temperature (approx. 470°C) to incinerate left-over dirt and grease from both oven cavities.

Favourite Range Cooker: Rangemaster Elise 110 Dual Fuel in Charcoal Matt

"I absolutely love the look of it and the fact it's got solid metal controls"

The Rangemaster Elise 110 captures the essence of a classic French range cooker and offers it with a contemporary style.

The elegant facia features geometrically designed solid metal control knobs with a brushed chrome finish. This is repeated on the towel rail, handles and plinth trim, which successfully brings both a traditional look and a more modern simplicity.

A multifunction main oven, with an integrated grill, and a fanned second oven are complemented by a separate glide-out grill and a storage drawer. In keeping with other more classically styled ranges, the Elise does not feature a clock/auto timer.

"Practically, because it's got two fanned ovens, it's perfect for how we cook at home and the catalytic liners are a bonus (less cleaning!)"

On top, a six-burner hob is enhanced by detailed semi-gloss cast iron pan supports and adds further to the flavour of this balanced Rangemaster range cooker.

With a choice of three different hobs and six different oven configurations, the Cluny offers you the choice to select a range cooker that suits your style of cooking perfectly.

"Plus, who wouldn't love a pop of pink in a timeless, understated kitchen!"

With one-metre wide being the standard size for a range cooker, the Cluny is one of Lacanche's best-selling range cookers. The simple, symmetrical design of the Cluny remains ever popular, with this entry-level configuration offering a 55 litre static electric oven with integrated grill and a 49 litre convection (fanned) oven.

Favourite Range Cooker: Rangecookers Select 70df2

"The Select 70df2 has practical and efficient functionality with a modern, sleek and minimal aesthetic"

The Select 70cm range cooker offers the same quality, style and value as its larger siblings, but allows smaller kitchens to benefit from the increased capacity of a range cooker.

The extra width allows the Select 70df2 to feature a five-burner gas hob, which includes a powerful central triple-ring wok burner and single-handed ignition.

"It packs a lot into its small size, the five burner hob and two ovens make it compact but versatile"

It features two ovens - a 53 litre fanned programmable main oven and a 35-litre conventional top oven with variable electric grill. The top oven can be used with base heat only, which is ideal for a crispy pizza...

Both ovens are A-rated and the rear upstand is there as a heat-shield but can be removed if fitting the optional stainless-steel splashback to the wall.

Favourite Range Cooker: Bertazzoni Heritage 100 XG Induction in Avorio

"I love the style of this cooker - classic, with a hint of steampunk! I would always opt for an extra grill (with a smaller storage drawer) as the more usable space the better for me"

This 100cm triple cavity range cooker suits a traditional kitchen with contemporary living, cleverly combining the classic appeal with the technology and advanced engineering Bertazzoni are renowned for.

Both ovens have triple-glazed doors to minimise heat loss, with one main electric oven with 11 functions, ranging from convection and baking to fast-preheat, and a second auxiliary oven with six different modes.

"Induction hobs are a dream to use and to keep clean - ideal with little kids as well. The build quality is fabulous, and the lead time is never too long!"

On top is a five-zone induction hob, delivering easy-to-control cooking power via rotary controls and digital display under the glass surface. The bridging function also allows you to use the two cooking zones on the right and left as one single cooking zone. This XG model also includes a separate "extra grill", complete with a full-width glide-out grill tray.

Favourite Range Cooker: ILVE Milano 100 6 Burner Dual Fuel in White and Brass

"The style of the Milano stands out, particularly with the brass trim and the optional addition of a plinth"

The 100cm Milano twin range cooker brings a 65-litre multifunction main oven, plus a 57-litre second multifunction oven alongside it. Both cavities feature easy clean enamel interiors and two-height halogen lighting for a great view of what is going on inside, as well as child safety locks.

There is also a steam discharge vent allowing you to control the humidity or condensation levels, letting out a little for wetter dishes or keeping it in for baking - a lovely touch that demonstrates ILVE's commitment to culinary detail. A soft close, full width storage drawer provides ample room for all of your trays and cookware.

"I like that this cooker has: soft close doors, the E3 technology, two multifunction ovens and a decent temperature range"

ILVE's unique E3 technology allows you to digitally adjust the temperature using a control dial to nudge the setting in 5-degree increments, from 30 to an impressive and pizza friendly 300°C, with minimal thermal fluctuation and a rapid start up feature that can get the oven to 200°C in just 6 minutes!
