Posted on November 16, 2015 by John Etherington

ILVE are pleased to announce the addition of precision, digital temperature control in their collection of bespoke rangecookers. New for 2015 and widely available throughout the UK, the new E3 feature allows for accurate control of oven temperatures which now reach from 30°C to an impressive 300°C.

 

The ILVE difference

Renowned for innovative cooking technology throughout the world, ILVE have accomplished adding advance features to their rangecookers which are usually reserved for the realm of built-in ovens. The new improved temperature control feature has so far been lacking from the range cooker market – no longer do consumers have to endure inaccurate cooking conditions.

Jason Harris, director of KitchenEX – the exclusive UK importers of ILVE remarks: “With the boom in home baking since The Great British Bake Off, consumers are more savvy when choosing their cooking appliances. For those looking for the same technology in a range cooker as is currently available in built- in appliances, consumers may have struggled to find a suitable product. With the introduction of the new E3 feature, precision cooking is now available to the rangecooker consumer.”

Technology you can trust

Combined with the impressive ILVE oven features such as quick start rapid heat up and catalytic oven liners, the E3 feature results in a professional quality home cooker.

How to choose the best range cooker to suit the way you cook.

Posted on January 14, 2015 by John Etherington

Range cooker with frytop hob

 

With so many options and models of range cookers available, it is a good idea to work out exactly what functions and features you would like from your new appliance to ensure you choose the best range cooker for you.

Key points to take into account when choosing a new range cooker:

Size:

Range cookers vary in size from a slim 60cm model to the robust 150cm versions. If you have a small kitchen space, a small range cooker may be more convenient. However, the extra 10cms between a 90cm range cooker and a 100cm range cooker can make a huge difference in the extra features that are available to choose.

Colour:

Range cookers are often available in an array of different colours and finishes. It is important to see a colour swatch for your desired cooker, especially if you are looking to match colours to the rest of your kitchen. You should be wary of trying A contrasting colour range cooker can look fantastic – consider a gloss black range cooker set against your cream cabinets for a dramatic effect.

Oven Capabilities:

It is important to consider oven sizes and features when choosing the best range cooker to suit your cooking style. With ILVE in particular, you could choose a cooker with a single oven or twin oven; with the option to add a separate grill, all on the same range cooker. Having a variety of different ovens in one station means that cooking demanding meals like roast dinners and complicated deserts is made easier by choosing a range cooker with the best oven combination to suit you.

Fuel type:

Many range cookers now have the ability use dual fuel, meaning that you can easily choose a combination of gas and electric cooking power. A common combination is a gas hob with an electric oven, allowing you to benefit from the speed and control of a gas hob with the steadiness of an evenly heating electric oven. You may however also choose a gas oven or an induction hob, the choice is down to your preference.

Hob Options:

As with built-in hobs, some range cookers have the ability to have a tailored hob to meet your own specifications. The ILVE Roma and Milano collections of range cookers can be customised to include a number of different hob configurations and cooking features that can make cooking easier and more fun for the discerning chef at home.

 Features to look out for include a fry top hot plate, ribbed griddles, a French style Coup de feu burner with multiple rings of varying heat, an electric BBQ for grilling and even an electric basket fryer. You could also opt to have a mix of both gas hobs and induction for those who want the best of both hobs types on their range cooker.

Finding the right range cooker

There is a lot to consider when purchasing a new range cooker, however the benefits of having a cooking station that perfectly complements your personal cooking preferences greatly outweighs the time spent making your initial research.

After all, a high quality range cooker such as those hand-built in Italy by ILVE could be with you for many years to come! Take a look at the Roma range to get an idea of the full scope of range cooker options available with ILVE.

The advantages of induction hob range cookers

Posted on October 06, 2014 by John Etherington

You may have heard of an ‘induction range cooker’ but not know precisely what this means, and how this differs from a standard range cooker. Induction cooking doesn’t use the traditional method of heating a hob which is infrared radiation generated from a gas flame or from electrical wires. Range cookers with an induction hob use an alternating electrical current to create something called an ‘eddy current’ which in turn produces resistive heating- and that’s how the food gets cooked. This intuitive method of heating is safer, quicker and more effective than traditional heating methods.


 

Extra safe with an induction hob range cooker

Induction hobs are particularly popular amongst customers as they are much safer than traditional hobs. There are two main reasons for this: the first is that induction heating is completely flameless, so you are free from the risks associated with a naked flame in the kitchen.


The second reason that induction cooking is so much safer is that only the pan itself is heated, not the surrounding area. This is because a magnetic field is generated between the hob and the pan so the plate itself does not become hot. The hob will actually shut down if there is nothing placed on it so there’s no more worrying about accidentally leaving it on! These safety features are brilliant if you have small children running around the kitchen and are worried about them harming themselves.


 

Easier to clean

Tired of scrubbing round the curves and indents of a traditional hobs? A range cooker with an induction hob consists of one completely flat surface, making it easy to wipe clean after a messy bolognese or unruly tomato soup.


 

Quicker cooking

You might not believe it, but induction hobs actually cook your food quicker than regular gas or electric hobs. Induction hobs heat up more quickly, provides greater thermal efficiency ensuring much less energy is wasted and also they produce a more consistent level of heat.
