So you’ve decided to purchase an electric cooker, but not quite sure what you are looking for. Well, the first choice will obviously be determined by whether you are investing in a fitted kitchen, where the cooker will be built into the kitchen design or if you by a free standing electric cooker, you must make sure it actually fits the dimensions of the space left to accommodate it. Sounds simple, but a few millimetres out and you suddenly have a unit that won’t fit, so your measurements need to be spot on. Standard free standing electric cookers normally measure 50-60cm in width, with larger models between 80-150cm.
You will find two types of electric cookers, single or double. The single oven cooker will have just the one fan and will usually come with a standard grill. Singles are a great choice of you have limited space in your kitchen.The double oven cooker, as it suggests, has a double fan and will heat up quicker than the single fan ovens and have extra cooking space needed if cooking regularly for a family or friends.
When it comes to choosing styles and colours for your electric cookers, they are not as wide-ranging as gas cookers. Most styles fit a contemporary kitchen, rather than the traditional kitchen, as the ceramic hobs do not have a “rustic” feel to them. Colour wise, generally they will come in either white, black or stainless steel, although some K suppliers have different colours to suit your kitchen.
Cleaning electric cookers is normally a far easier job than gas cookers. There are 3 types of electric cookers which are ring and ceramic element and ceramic top. Both the ceramic element and top are fairly straight foward to clean. Soak a cloth in vinegar as this is fantastic for getting through grease and wipe the top surface clean. Use a guard over your pans to prevent initial grease build up. Now the ring element electric cookers are more difficult to clean. Firstly, make sure you cover any unused elements with foil to prevent splattering on them and then place aluminium foil on the drip tray to take any unwanted spillages.
