Who are Belling and Stoves? Have you heard of them before? Are you a lover of the brands? Well here at Appliance City we are.


Belling is brand that has been in production since 1912. Originally started by Charles Reginald Belling in Enfield. Still to this day Belling is proudly made and manufactured right here in Britain.

Belling isn’t just another brand that’s been around for over 100 years. They’ve also been the pioneers behind some of the greatest cooking inventions we still use today, like induction ovens. The question you must ask yourself, is not ‘Why Belling?’ but ‘Why not Belling?’

Belling Stainless Steel Range Cooker - Appliance City

This induction range cooker from Belling is nothing short of gorgeous. Induction range cookers are probably one of the safest forms of cooking in the modern world. The cooktop only gets hot when in contact with a pan set made of magnetised materials. This means that if a little one turns the hob on, on accident they won’t get burned. Brilliant if you ask me!

Take a look at the kitchen above. The Belling induction range cooker looks modern and sleek amongst the black cabinetry and white granite counter tops. Coming with features like variable rate grill and easy clean enamel interior everything is cooked and cleaned to perfection. Plus with the two ovens, the main one being a fan oven you can cook enough to feed the whole family, and then some!

Cooking goes from being a horrid chore to a heavenly hobby!

The Stoves brand is nearly as equally as old as the Belling brand. Stoves originated in 1920 and since then they’ve been pushing the boundaries of what we call ovens and cookers for home cooks and professions alike.  Like Belling, Stoves originated in Britain and is still currently manufactured in Britain. So when you buy either brand you’re contributing to the local economy.

Choosing the right range cooker for you

When investing in a range cooker, carrying out the right level of research and planning is essential so that your final purchase is perfect for your kitchen and your lifestyle.

Read our guide to discover which features and options will be the most suitable for you.      

What size do you have room for?

Choosing the right size of range cooker should be the first step you take when finding the perfect appliance for you.

If you are renovating your kitchen, you can be more flexible with the size of your range cooker. However, if you are simply looking to replace your existing appliance, getting the dimensions right is crucial.

Range cookers come in a number of sizes, typically 90cm, 110cm and 120cm, which are somewhat bigger than standard cookers. While smaller range cookers tend to offer six hob burners or induction zones, an oven and a grill, the larger sized appliances include the standard six hob burners or induction zones, along with a built-in griddle, two ovens, a grill and also a storage drawer.

The right fuel source is crucial

Range cookers are available with different fuel sources, and choosing the right option is critical for gaining the best possible culinary experience.

Take the time to understand which fuel sources work well for different types of cooking, so that whether you are a baker or even a multicultural cook, you can invest in the right one.

Electric range cookers, whereby both the oven and hob use electricity as their heating source, are more energy efficient than alternatively fuelled range cookers. They also tend to be more stylish, with sleek, modern finishes on their induction hobs. For those who enjoy baking, electric range cookers with fan ovens can also deliver perfectly sculpted cake and cookies.

Dual fuel range cookers provide both gas and electric features within the one appliance. Their gas hobs tend to cost less to run than electric induction hobs, perfect for when you are saving towards your next kitchen appliance. Not only that, but gas hobs provide the perfect support for woks and other unique cooking accessories, so are great for those looking to try out lots of different cuisines.

Colour and style should be considered

Range cookers are available in many different designs. For more traditional houses, there are classic styles available, many of which resemble original AGA cookers. Whereas for homes with a contemporary edge, there are also range cookers designed with sleek, stunning simplicity.

Colour is also something to think about. While a few years ago, you would have had a limited choice of black, white or silver, you can now opt for appliances in any shade on the spectrum. So, think about your kitchen decor and the mood you want to emanate. If you wish to boost the appetite of dinner guests, deep hues of red work well, whereas blue shades are best for creating a sense of calm and creativity.

Any additional features are beneficial

Once you have chosen the standard features, it is time to turn your attention to personalising your range cooker.

Cleaning features are extremely popular as they can prevent the need for hours of oven scrubbing. Stay-clean liners for example, simply surround the oven and absorb any cooking spills, and are also easily replaceable.

Other popular accessories include adjustable legs, rotisseries, griddles and wok supports.

Think about how you will be using your range cooker

If you have a family, induction hobs are recommended as they come with child friendly features such as child locks and automatic heat reduction.

Meanwhile, those wanting to regularly entertain friends and family with their culinary creations should think about investing in a larger range cooker as well as warming drawers to prepare plates and keep food warm.

As these kitchen appliances play an important role in the home, taking the time to make the right choice will ensure a happy future for you, your home and your cooking.
