Tips On Using a Freestanding Cooker for The First Time

If you like an appliance that can do it all, a freestanding cooker is the perfect choice for your kitchen. Freestanding cookers are great alternative to the usual built-in wall ovens. They consist of an oven and a cooktop combined into a single unit, which can be placed anywhere on the kitchen floor.

Whether you are renovating or designing your kitchen space, you should consider purchasing a freestanding cooker over a standard wall oven and separate cooktop. Freestanding cookers need not be kept in one fixed location as they can easily be moved around. This means that you can go about designing other aspects of your kitchen without worrying about installation.

Freestanding cookers are suitable for large families and people who love to bake. The large internal space is the biggest advantage for the freestanding range. Prior buying one, look at the oven’s cavity size to ensure it is spacious enough for your needs. The internal height is essential for you to confirm that it will fit any large roasts you have planned to wow family and friends with.

Factors to be taken into consideration before buying a freestanding cooker

  • Take into account your kitchen space– sizes typically range from 50cm to 150cm wide
  • Choose from gas, electric or dual fuel with a gas hob and electric oven combined
  • Stress-free cleaning
  • Flexibility for more ways to cook – go for a single or double oven

Here are some of the safety tips on using a freestanding cooker for the first time:

  1. Cookers must be earthed

Earthing is a proper connection of visible metal parts to electric circuit from the ground. To avoid the risk of electric shock, the metal body of the electric appliances should be earthed. This is used as a safety measure, especially for those appliances that have metallic bodies.

 2.They must not be fitted on a platform or pallet.

As these cookers are meant to be used freestanding, they are designed to fit perfectly between kitchen cabinets. The space on either side has to be sufficient to allow withdrawal of the cooker for servicing.

3. Installation

Please do not install the appliance near powerful sources of heat, such as solid fuel stoves, because high temperature near them can damage the appliance.

4. Follow instructions

Use the hobs guards as intended and designed by the instruction manual manufacturer of the cookers or indicated by the instructions for use as suitable. The use of inappropriate guards can cause accidents.

5. Domestic use only

These cookers are intended for household use. Please do not use it for any other purpose, such as room heating, drying of pets or other animals, paper, fabrics.
