A Short Guide to Buying Kitchen Appliances

Have you read our post, Kitchen Design click here!

There are three types of oven, conventional ovens, fan assisted ovens and microwave ovens.

1/ In conventional ovens, heating elements are located at the top and at the bottom of the oven. They are suitable for general cooking.

2/ With fan assisted ovens, there are two types single fan assisted ovens and multi-functional fan ovens. They spread the heat more evenly more evenly through the oven that conventional ovens. If you are using more than one shelf for cooking a fan assisted oven is preferred to a conventional oven.

3/ Microwave ovens, combine microwave cooking with conventional oven cooking. This makes cooking times quicker.

Special features to consider are telescopic shelving that makes access easier.

Energy efficient ovens, eco-ovens, with timers that switch the heat off close to finishing cooking. The heat in the oven finishes off the last bit of cooking.

There’s the location of your oven to consider too. Do you want it high at eye level, no bending or hunkering down or located under the hob or range, its more traditional location. If it’s built in to your kitchen cupboards it will save you space. Kitchen appliances continued.

Whether you’re cooking for one or the entire household, you can find the ideal solution to prepare meals with ease.

Choose between freestanding and built-in cooking appliances, including microwaves, ovens, range cookers and hobs.

Look out for useful features like pyrolytic ovens and induction technology to make the most of your kitchen.

There are three types of hob, gas hobs, ceramic hobs and induction hobs.

1/ With gas hobs the heat is instantly controllable. Lower heat temperature is more achievable and Wok cooking is possible. Modern versions come with a flame supervision device that shuts off the gas if it fails to ignite or if the flame goes out.

2/ Ceramic hobs are easy to clean and look cool but are not suited to Wok cooking and very low temperatures are difficult to maintain compared to gas.

Kitchen appliances continued.

3/ With induction hobs you’ll need a particular set puts and pans to use for cooking. The hob remains cool and only the pot or pan heats up. This make its it a safe option.

Other considerations are how many pots and pans will you be using at any one time. The more you use then more cooking rings or zones you will need. This will influence the width of the hop as more cooking rings or zones will mean a greater width.

Special features to consider are cooking rings or zones that are flexible and can combine to give you a larger cooking area. Some hobs are a connected to the hood and the extraction rate is automatically adjusted to what is being cooked.

Something else to give though to are ‘Gas on Glass’ hobs, There’s information here about them.

And there’s three types of extractor fan.

1/ Integrated fans sometimes just called cooker hoods can seamlessly blend into the kitchen design hidden by the front of a cupboard.

2/ Chimney hoods that are mounted on the wall above the hob or cooker. They can be style statements as well as being functional. They can incorporate lights that can illuminate your hob.

3/ Island hoods suitable for hobs that are located not against walls but are freestanding, islands. Height become more important with these as you do not want them to obstruct your view across the kitchen. They feature lights, low noise and they can be big style statements.
