Interior Decorating Information

Cookers


If you are buying a free-standing cooker, oven or hob to makeover your kitchen, you may want to consider shopping for a few other important kitchen appliances, as well. Agas and cooker hoods are both important tools for the serious cook.

If your kitchen is on the large side, you may want to consider buying an Aga. These appliances may take up quite a bit of space, but they more than make up for their size with their convenience. Of course, if you have a small kitchen, you can still have a cooker manufactured by Aga, but it will not be as big or as flexible as the traditional Aga cookers. When you are entertaining, it is so easy to cook a large meal with an Aga. With the many ovens in an Aga, it is easy to cook the main dish and the side dishes and bread at the same time and have them all ready to serve at once, so that nothing is cold or overcooked.

Of course, many people buy an Aga for other reasons than the fact that it is a convenient way to prepare large meals. Some buy an Aga because of fond memories of the Agas in their childhood kitchens. Others buy one because they feel that a spacious kitchen does not look finished without an Aga in the center of it.

If you are frustrated with all of the smoke and strong odors in the kitchen when you are cooking, you may want to consider a range cooker hood. These hoods are big enough to run the width of your range cooker and can be installed on the wall over your cooker. Since they are free-standing, you can raise or lower them to a height that works well for you before installing them. You can choose from a hood that recycles the air in the house or one that is vented outside and draws in fresh air. Most hoods also provide lighting underneath so that you can see the food cooking on your hob more easily.

Built-in cooker hoods are similar to free-standing range cooker hoods. These hoods can be built in to the center of the kitchen ceiling to draw smoke and odors from the entire room, but they are most likely to be installed over the cooker instead.

Once you have your new appliances installed, why not invite a few friends over to admire your beautiful kitchen? After all, cooking for them will be much easier than it used to be.
