Things to consider when buying a cooking appliance
Freestanding or Built-in
The first decision to make is whether you want a freestanding cooker to fit into a space between kitchen units or you would prefer a built-in oven and hob to fit in with your integrated kitchen layout.
Once you have decided, you can start to look at the various types and sizes of cooker, hob and oven, the fuel source that best suits your home and the accessories to match.
Whether integrated or freestanding, cooking appliances come in a variety of sizes. Make sure you measure the space you have and don't forget to take the space around the cooker, known as the recess, into consideration before buying. Also remember to remove obstructions like wallpaper, plugs or cupboards that might get in the way.
Pick the most suitable fuel for your kitchen and cooking. If you aren’t redesigning your home, your existing fuel supply will influence the type of cooker you can choose, and each fuel type brings different benefits to your kitchen. It is best to check before you start.
