The Sigma 90cm Induction and Classic 90cm Induction combine the quality and specification for which Britannia is renowned with the very latest induction technology to create a cooker that is as stylish and attractive as it is practical and innovative.

Available on the twin oven models only, the hotplates of both the Sigma and the Classic offer five induction zones and nine power levels, which allow for greater heat control - meaning delicate sauces or the steaming of the Christmas pudding couldn’t be easier.  A child lock facility and residual heat indicators, meanwhile, are helpful safety features for those with kids who love helping out in the kitchen.

As well as all the advantages of induction cooking, gourmets will be delighted with the other features which include a nine function 60cm oven, a four function 30cm oven with rotisserie – just perfect for a succulent Christmas turkey, stay clean liners, a fully automatic programmer and minute minder and Britannia’s unique Quickstart function, which sees the oven go from 0 to 200°C in just six minutes.

Eight Tips To Make Sure Your Range Cooker Is Fit For Christmas

At this time of year many people are hurrying to finalise their new kitchen in time for Christmas. Britannia provides some tips to ensure you select the right range cooker for the festive season.

1.    If you are cooking for about 10 to 12 people at Christmas, you may want to prepare a 20lb (9kg) turkey. Make sure the capacity of the main oven is at least 50 litres.

2.    Multifunctional ovens allow you to choose the perfect function for your recipe. Make sure your oven includes functions like:

•    True fan oven – as the temperature will be the same in the whole oven, you can use the maximum oven capacity for batch baking mince pies or meringues;
•    Conventional cooking – the best function for baking fruit cakes as the slow cooking keeps the fruit cake moist;
•    Fan assisted oven – for the crispiest roast potatoes and parsnips;
•    Fan assisted grill – an easy way to prepare a traditional family breakfast as you only need to turn and baste your sausages once;
•    Bottom element only – ideal for a Christmas Eve or Boxing Day casserole, as it allows gentle simmering without the need for regular checking.

3.    Some second ovens are quite small - make sure it is large enough to prepare the stuffing, bacon rolls and chipolata sausages whilst the turkey is roasting in the main oven. A second oven is also useful for warming large dinner plates.

4.    Cookers with an electronic programmer take the stress out of Christmas cooking as you can relax while the cooker looks after your Christmas meal.

5.    Fast pre-heat systems like Britannia’s Quickstart cut waiting time so that there’s no need to stress if you have forgotten to prepare one of the dishes.

6.    Quiet range cookers and extractor hoods allow you to enjoy your aperitif (especially in an open plan kitchen) without the whizzing noise of fans in the background.

7.    Telescopic shelves (or roll-out shelves) take the backache out of Christmas as you only need to slide out the shelves with one finger to baste or check the turkey.

8.    Would you like to cook together with the whole family at Christmas? The Chef top will inspire everyone to cook on it, from stir fries to marinated meat, fish and seafood.
