Rangemaster Classic Deluxe Induction by Popular Demand
Since introducing their first models in mid-2008 Rangemaster’s induction range cookers have been something of a hit, pairing Rangemaster’s famous quality and reputation with the power and controllability of induction technology. Currently available in three model styles, Classic, Toledo and Elan, we have always felt that there is a conspicuous gap in the form of the high-spec Classic Deluxe, and customer feedback has certainly reflected this. Good news, then, as Rangemaster have announced the imminent launch of both a Classic Deluxe 90 Induction and a Classic Deluxe 110 Induction range cooker (dates yet to be revealed).
The handsome Classic Deluxe not only looks rather more impressive than its standard Classic counterparts, with its chunkier controls and handles and its improved plinth, it features a multifunction main oven which offers much more cooking flexibility than a straightforward fan oven (as well as an extra grill), and the separate grill compartment features Rangemaster’s must-have Glide-out grill tray. Colours have yet to be confirmed, but the standard finishes of Cream, Matt Black and Cranberry should certainly be available (with a choice of chrome or brass details), and Latte and Rose Taupe may be a possibility. The new Classic Deluxe 90 and 110 both feature five induction zones, including a powerful 3.2kW central zone with power boost, suitable for wok cooking. Induction is not only popular with those without a mains gas connection, it’s also becoming a firm favourite with professional chefs, who rave about its responsive controllability, as well as those with young children who appreciate the safety benefits of heating only the pans, not the hob surface itself. Energy efficient and easy to clean, induction seems to be hitting the mark for many customers, and this latest addition should prove a big success.
