How we test range cookers

In the shop it's easy to determine which style of range cooker you would like, but, you can't tell how well it will actually cook your food or how easy it is to use. And that's where Which? comes in. In our range cooker reviews we look at:

  • Useable capacity - we use fake turkeys, chickens and roast beef joints to see how much of the oven you can actually use, compared to what the manufacturers claim.
  • Heat distribution - we bake shortbread to reveal how effective the range cookers are at spreading heat right around the oven.
  • Pre-heating and accuracy - setting the ovens to high and low temperatures, we measure how long they take to reach the target and how accurate they are.
  • Grill and hob - we see how evenly the grill cooks using white crustless bread, and measure how quickly the hob heats up a pan of water from 15°C to 90°C
  • Energy use - to save you money, we check how much energy each range cookers uses.
