Mastering the Art of the Esse, Aga or Rayburn Range Cooker
This is a must-have course seeing as we teach centre stage at Sandpits Heating Centre in a showroom filled with Esse and Rayburn Range Cookers. This is a family-run business that was started by Miranda’s father in-law Bob Macey more than 50 years ago. He has had a relationship with Rayburn for over 40 years. (See link to article). We are great believers in championing these superb cookers.
The heart of a home is most likely the kitchen, and these Ranges need a lot of love and attention. You have either taken the leap and bought an Esse, Aga or Rayburn because you love this type of cooker, perhaps you have grown up with them, or you have inherited one with your new home. We are here to help you maximise the use of your stove. We like to think that we have the skills to give you confidence to use these cookers properly.
From roasting meat, baking fish, tarts, pies and cakes in the ovens, to cooking welsh cakes, eggs, toasting sandwiches, and crepes on the top, we give you the lowdown on how to make that cooker sing for its supper.
Our courses are designed to help you get the most out of your range cooker by transferring 70 percent of your cooking to the ovens. Usually we use the top 70 percent and the ovens 30 percent. We show you techniques to switch that so that you do not lose too much heat through constantly cooking on the tops.
Once you know how to use them, and you have bought yourself several timers as you cannot smell anything that is cooking in one of these, you are half way there to making wonderful food and enjoying the beautiful surround heat that these ovens are built with.
If you have an expensive piece if kit, our philosophy is that you better make the most out of it. Guess what, even if you have had one of these for years, we are sure we can always teach you something new.
