Things to consider when buying a cooking appliance

  • Freestanding

    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.

  • Space


    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.
