Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is the best oven/hob pairing?
AWhile it is very much a personal preference, the general opinion is that gas hobs and an electric oven give the best mix of a powerful, easy-to-control oven and powerful hobs.
QWhat is a 'flame failure device' on a hob?
AThis is a system to detect when the flame has died on a gas hob, and automatically cut the gas for safety.
QWhat is a 'wok burner'?
AA wok burner is a large burner specifically meant for evenly heating the wide base of a wok.

Cooker Buying Guide

A cooker is the central componant of many larger kitchens - they are usually made up of a freestanding oven, with a hob comprising of several burners on top. Their size mean that they have a sizable footprint in the kitchen, but can also be used to cook several dishes at once - making them invaluable for large families.

There are several different types and configurations of cooker, and your choice will be dictated largely by how much food you prepare on a regular basis, and whether you need the capacity for both oven cooking (such as baking cakes or pies) and hob cooking (such as boiling and frying).

Oven

The oven is the main section of a cooker, and is mainly used for baking, roasting and slow-cooking dishes. Most cookers will have a single oven with the hob placed on top - however some more expensive brands contain 2, 3 or even 4 ovens. In these cases there is usually one oven that is the larger 'main' oven (for cooking large dishes like turkeys or geese) and several smaller ovens.

The capacity of the oven(s) is extremely important since the larger the capacity, the bigger the dishes you can prepare. Oven capacity is measured in litres - we look both at the capacities of the individual ovens and the total capacity of the entire cooker to help you make an informed decision.

Hob

The hob is the second section of the cooker - a collection of hot plates or burners which allow several different dishes to be cooked at once. When comparing hobs on a cooker, it's important to look at the number of cooking zones (burners or hot plates) on the hob. Most cookers have 4 burners spaced evenly across the top of the machine - however some models have as few as 2, or as many as 7.

Another important consideration is whether to choose a gas or electric hob for your cooker. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

Gas Hob: Gas burners have no heat-up time, so are far quicker to use, and the heat levels are easier to control than electric. Gas flames tend to spread more evenly across the bottom of pans, meaning quicker heating and more even cooking. They are also cheaper to run than electric hobs, saving you money on daily use.

Electric Hob: Electric hot plates take time to heat up, and tend to have a far more concentrated heat radius, leading to uneven heat distribution with large pans. They are also more expensive to run than gas hobs - however they are easier to clean, and significantly easier to set up and use.

Power Level

The power level of both the oven(s) and hob is an important consideration - the higher the power level, the faster and more efficiently food can be cooked. All our ovens and cookers are measured in watts (W).

All our cookers are graded on their energy efficiency. The higher the grade, the less energy will be used during cooking, and the cheaper the cooker will be to run. Look for a cooker graded at A++ or above for the best efficiency in daily use.

Extras

Finally, there are a multitude of smaller features and functions to consider when choosing a cooker. These can involve safety features such as child locks and automatic shut-off systems and pre-programmed settings to make cooking popular dishes extremely easy. We also have cookers in a wide range of colours and styles, so you can match it perfectly to the design of your kitchen.

Biggest Cooker Retailers

The biggest cooker retailer by number of products currently for sale is eBay. We found 6 current cooker offers from eBay. The second biggest retailer is Overstock with 3 offers. That means eBay is much bigger than Overstock when it comes to cookers.

When Are Most New Cookers Released?

We couldn't see any noticeable pattern in the release dates for new cookers over the last 3 years. 67 new cookers were released in June 2020 making it the biggest month that year for new cooker releases. In January 2019, 32 new cookers were released making it the biggest month that year for new cooker releases. In 2018 most new cookers were released in March, with 75 new cookers released that month.

How Fast Do Cooker Prices Drop After Release?

In the first 6 months after release, cookers drop in price by 8% on average.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of $109 on a typical $1,336 new cooker by waiting 6 months before buying.

Product Types

Product type denotes whether the cooker is designed to be free standing, or to be built in to fixtures unobtrusively.

Freestanding is the most common product type amongst new cookers. We found 1,664 cookers that are freestanding cookers. We found 19 cookers that are integrated cookers, making integrated the second most popular product type amongst new cookers.

The category of oven e.g. gas, electrical.

Amongst new cookers, the most popular oven type is electric oven. We found 1,287 cookers that are electric oven cookers. Gas oven is the second most popular oven type amongst new cookers. We found 380 cookers that are gas oven cookers.

A hob (burner on top of cooker) can be gas, induction, ceramic etc.

We found 974 cookers that are cookers that have a gas hob hob type, which makes this the most popular hob type amongst new cookers. The second most common hob type amongst new cookers is electric hob. We found 472 cookers that are cookers that have an electric hob hob type.

Ovens

Some cookers have more than one oven compartment. The temperature of each compartment can be controlled separately.

The ovens of cookers range from 1 to 4. The ovens of most cookers range from 2 to 3. The AEG CIB6740ACM, which currently retails for $1,224.79, has the most oven and is a 2 oven cooker. The Samsung NE59J7850WG, which sells for $1,993.99, has the least oven and is a 1 oven cooker.

Having more than one oven allows you to cook two different dishes at different temperatures, or avoid smells from one dish affecting the other dish.

Burners / Cooking Zones

The number of burners (gas) or cooking zones (electric) on the hob.

Across the range of cookers, the burners / cooking zones range from 1zone(s) to 9zone(s). The burners / cooking zones of most cookers range from 4zone(s) to 5zone(s). The Thor Kitchen HRG4808U, which is priced at $4,999.00, has the most burner / cooking zone and is a 6zone(s) burner / cooking zone cooker. The Nordmende CTG61LPGBK, which can be purchased for $541.92, has the least burner / cooking zone and is a 4zone(s) burner / cooking zone cooker.

More burners/cooking zones mean that you can cook more food at once, making the cooker more efficient and meaning you can prepare large meals faster.

Main Oven Interior Capacities

'Main Oven Capacity' is a measurement of how much food can fit inside the main oven in the cooker, measures in litres (L).

The main oven interior capacities of cookers range from 18L to 178.4L. The main oven interior capacities of most cookers range from 65L to 75L. The LG LRE3061ST, which sells for $1,099.99, has the biggest main oven interior capacity and is a 178.4L 1st oven interior capacity cooker. The cooker with the smallest main oven interior capacity is the Nordmende CTG61LPGBK, which is a 41L 1st oven interior capacity cooker and sells for $541.92.

A bigger oven capacity will allow more food to be cooked and will allow larger items such as turkeys to fit inside the oven.

Energy Efficiency of Cookers

The Energy Efficiency Class of a cooker is a measure of how much energy is wasted when the appliance is in use.

We found 1,171 cookers that have an energy efficiency rating of A, which makes A the most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new cookers. A+ is the second most popular energy efficiency rating amongst new cookers. We found 393 cookers that have an energy efficiency rating of A+.

A greater energy efficiency class means that less energy will be wasted, meaning the appliance is cheaper to run, and better for the environment.
