I will be needing a new cooker, I would like a Range cooker.

No gas here so all electric or Propane, never got on with Electric as it takes to long to adjust temp.

I had a Rangemaster at my old house which was superb. any advice help would be great.

@aVdub I think I remember you posting in recent purchase a range cooker?

Yes we did buy a new range cooker but this one was all electric down below and gas up above.
The dual ovens have one fan assisted and the large grill is also fan assisted with 7 gas rings above with a large Wok ring and was made by Flavel.

Great prices for that range of cooker.

Can you give me feed back on how the cooker is looking after some use does it clean up well, are the burners still looking good would hate to buy something that looks shabby after a while. I know my old range master looked as good as knew after a spit and polish.

So far so good and cleans up with ease (the OH does it) and all the rings break down for detailed cleaning and there are no real tough to get to and build up with crud area's
Burners are still working as when bought and there are no signs of curling, peeling or discoloration.
We are not heavy users of the unit as we eat out a lot, but we are more than happy with it.

We have this one running on propane - Professional Deluxe 90cm Range Cooker - Dual Fuel | Rangemaster

It works well enough, except the electric oven, that thing is less use then a chocolate teapot. The build quality is quite poor for the price though IMO. It's a toy compared to proper AGAs, but they are silly money.

I think we paid somewhere between 1300-1500 euro for that.

I'd give it 6/10.

@Hixs thats the same model I had at the last house, not sure I would pay for one now tho, even second hand on the bay they fetch silly money. The grill elements were always going on my old rangemaster so always kept a few in stock.

The one avdub listed is a great price the only down size its listed at Currys and I hate dealing with them.

FWIW we have a Stoves Sterling - 110cm wide - gas hobs and electric ovens.
Make sure you get something that has the LPG conversion included or available as the natural gas jets won't work properly with LPG.
Sterling Range Cookers - Stoves

Ours has been in heavy usage since 2006 - we've had it fixed a couple of times in that time. Once for a bust thermostat and once for an overheating issue which was a combination of the steam vents being blocked and a perished insulation sleeve on the back - condensation creeping up the wiring and shorting it out. Both times I've used their own repair service which isn't particularly cheap but they sorted it out, unlike the independent who messed me about for 3 months claiming the thermostat was obsolete.
Over the course of all that time some of the paint indicating which dial does which burner has rubbed off but cosmetically it looks OK.

IIRC they're basically the same as Rangemaster but in less traditional cases.

Thank you for all the feed back.

Popped into currys today boo, love the Flavel cooker, still hate currys tho.

Need to find an alternative supplier if I can, so I can purchase without spending a penny in that place.

Can you get Falcon in the UK? They're part of the AGA group.

I have a Falcon with induction on top and electric below. Superb quality but the induction doesn't heat my cast iron griddle pan to a high enough temperature for my steaks. Previously I had a Falcon with propane top and that was brilliant. Only thing with both of them is the grill is useless, too close to the heating element and no provision for adjusting the height, turn your back for a second on the bacon and you have black carbon crisps.
