Oil cookers can fulfil all cooking requirements, in the home or at work. They were traditionally used for cooking before contemporary models came about, but are still identified as efficient appliances with fast heat up times. However, modern advances have led to added features to enhance their capabilities such as electronic programmers.
Oil fired cookers are usually large in size, and often come equip with at least two burners which enable the cooking and heating functions to be independently operated.
Although oil is no longer the fuel of choice for some because of heating costs, cookers are much more efficient and controllable when using this heat source, so it may ultimately still be an effective option.
Oil Cooker Features
These cookers are installed with or without chimneys, and can operate instead using a fan flue kit or a twin walled flue pipe, both of which provide adequate ventilation.
Most oil cookers heat up in approximately 30 to 40 minutes from cold to 200 deg C, though can be left on for longer periods of time in the colder months.
All oil cookers are available with different size, design, and colour options. They come in an appealing choice of attractive glossy coloured finishes and are a focal point of every kitchen.
These types of cookers can even provide efficient under floor heating as the oil fuel source can be used for many heating functions.
Temperatures can be controlled by modern oil cooker thermostats, allowing the owner to regulate the amount of heat and fuel consumption.
Oil Range Cookers
Range cookers are the main type of cooker that is heated by oil. They are very large appliances that usually consist of at least two ovens and at least six burners.
Oil range cookers are traditional in appearance, and maintain a distinctive look with cast iron constructions, though this does not diminish their rapid heat up times. They provide high levels of control, and the thermostatically controlled ovens can be conveniently turned on and off as required.
Oil Cookers and Hot Water
Not solely for cooking, the oil range cooker is also used for generating hot water, and can service the central heating system, heating any number of radiators within a building. These different applications can be programmed independently, allowing the cooker, hot water and central heating to switch on and turn off at a desired time throughout various times of the day.
Oil Cooker Installation
The oil fired cooker uses high quality insulation, incorporating insulated stainless steel hotplate covers, therefore heat losses are greatly reduced. Their thermostatic oven functions give complete control over when and how the oil cooker is used, another benefit of using cookers fuelled by oil.
Oil Cooker Safety Features
Some models have integrated fault finding diagnostics, ensuring the oil cookers operate safely, whilst not diminishing their powerful, quick heat output.
Given the many colours and designs oil fired cookers are available in, they are ideal for medium to large kitchens in the home, and would be perfect for those holding elaborate dinner parties. As they are large appliances, these cookers are highly suitable for business use, in commercial kitchens and restaurants, etc.
