How much/what type of cooking do you do?
Range cookers are loved for the endless possibilities they give when cooking and channelling your inner chef in the kitchen. You should take into account the type of cooking you and your family carry out on a regular basis. This helps you to identify the type of range cooker you would make the most use of. For example, does your family do a lot of baking? Or perhaps you enjoy the use of a slow cooker in the winter? Also consider how much you utilise the hob of your cooker, as these differ with each range cooker model and size.
How much time do you spend cooking?
For some people, cooking is a passion that they dedicate every weekend to. For others, it's a necessity that they don't take huge amounts of joy in. These two viewpoints will affect a number of factors when it comes to buying a range cooker. For example, if you thrive when cooking, you may justify spending more or buying a bigger oven. For others, they may only want a range cooker with simple functions that fit comfortably within their budget.
How many people do you cook for?
The size of your household and the number of people you have to cook for is also a factor to consider when buying your new range cooker. For example, if you have a large family with more mouths to feed, you're likely to need a bigger oven to facilitate larger amounts of cooking. Whereas if you live alone, you could get away with smaller amounts of oven space.
