The 8 key differences between E Line and L Line range cookers

16TH AUGUST 2011


There are many similarities between E Line and L Line range cookers. They have, for instance, the same oven functions and both feature a rotisserie. The main ovens feature Quickstart (Britannia’s unique fast pre-heat system).

Are you unsure whether you should select an E Line or L Line range cooker? Please find below the main differences.

1. The hob of an L Line range cooker has individual pan supports – these are much easier to clean under a tap. The E Line pan supports cover two burners and are therefore quite long.

2. The hob of an L Line range cooker has spillage wells – if something boils over, you don’t have to clean the whole hob. E Line range cookers, however, have a one-piece pressing which some people find easier to clean.

3. The ovens of an L Line range cooker have a stay-clean roof liner. E Line ovens don’t have stay-clean liners. You can, however, buy stay-clean liners separately for the back and sides of the ovens of both E Line and L Line range cookers.

4. The ovens of an L Line range cooker are A rated (the doors are triple glazed). E Line ovens are B rated for energy efficiency.

5. The L Line range cooker has a storage compartment to put away, for instance, your baking trays. The E Line range cooker doesn’t have a storage compartment.

6. The hob of the 100cm L Line range cooker is a full-width hob and the hob option with 6 burners has two triple-ring wok burners. The 100cm E Line range cooker hob is similar to the 90cm hob.



7. Last but not least, there are more hob options for L Line range cookers: if you like the Chef Top (a stainless steel hotplate suitable for anything from breakfast foods to fish, meat and stir-fries), then go for the L Line. Also, if you would like an all electric range cooker, L Line range cookers are available with a ceramic hob.

8. L Line range cookers are available in graphite and stainless steel, while the E Line range cookers are available in gloss black and stainless steel.

Should you go for an E Line or L Line range cooker? It’s up to you. The E Line is slightly cheaper, but the L Line is easier to clean, has a handy storage compartment and is A rated.
