The best range cooker is well worth tracking down, despite being generally higher in price than standard cookers. Not only do they look great – even some of the more traditional range cookers are now available in some really eye-popping shades – but they also offer a really flexible way of cooking. 

Whilst range cookers are traditionally thought of as being far larger in size than conventional ovens, they are now available in lots of different size options, from those worthy of a professional kitchen setting to models more suited to compact kitchens.
