Gas cooker buying guide

Gas cookers provide fast and responsive heat that cooks quickly. Cooking with gas provides a manageable, instantly adjustable heat and helps to give roasts a crisp skin on the outside whilst keeping the meat succulent.

Cheaper to run than electric cookers, when it comes to gas there are two options: natural gas and LPG. Natural gas cookers are more common than LPG but both need to be installed by a professional, Gas Safe Registered fitter to ensure that they work efficiently and safely. Many natural gas cookers can be converted to LPG with a kit, however this needs to be carried out at the time of installation by a registered fitter.
