I got a rangemaster 90 classic in November in the black and chrome with the cooker hood with chrome bar. I wasn't really sure because Belling did a range at half the price. However, I have had loads of comments about it, they do look so much better in situ than in the shop. It has taken a bit of getting used to but I am getting there. Even our kitchen fitter commented on what a nice range it was.
They tend to be very expensive to order from the bigger stores,but I bought locally and asked them to match the best online price and they did. We then also bought rangemaster integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher. They were around £250-£300 each and I got another discount.
I did consider a Stoves because they looked good in the showroom. However, I read a review site and the reviews were generally awful across the board. Rangemaster generally good.
They are owned by Aga and are their bottom of the range cookers - as opposed to £7,000 for some of their Agas.
We have a teknik. Not too expensive (but it wouldnt last you 30 years, ours is nine years and needed repairs to the element and drawers and one door is elderly) however, it's got a fab delay-cooking feature, the 5 hobs are great, and its v reliable in terms of temperature. One fan an one conventional oven gives good flexibility and I would buy one again.
I'm planning our new kitchen and I was going for a stoves oven and a smeg burner. However I saw my dream kitchen on houzz and it has a range cooker in it. Are they any good? What would I look in one if I decided to go for one? Can you program the oven? Tell me, tell me...!! (And if you can recommend a good one too, not too expensive then all the better!)
