  • Cooker Hoods
    Cooker Hoods

    An extractor hood, more commonly known as a Cooker Hood is an appliance containing a fan situated above the stove or hob in a kitchen. Other than looking flashy and slightly futuristic, the main purpose of the cooker hood is to extract the steam, airborne greases and fumes from the air through a vacuum like suction to keep the air clean and smelling fresh. A definite must have in every kitchen, for health purposes as well as the cherry on top to complete your desired kitchen style.

    Here at BBK Direct we have a diverse selection of Cooker hoods in different styles to suit each individual aesthetic. The more professional and formal the cooker – those who treat cooking more like a profession than a hobby – the sleeker the appliance. For the practical cookers, we have beautiful flat hoods and we even have ones that light up for those who just want something nice to look at. A Cooker Hood for every occasion and for every profession.

    Cooker Hoods are never to be bought first, rather think of it as an accessory to your kitchen – always to be put on last. When buying an extractor hood or a cooker hood you have to keep the rest of your kitchen in mind. You want it to blend in with your theme and have a smooth finish to the over all look.

    To start with, you will have to get to know the six main types of extractor hoods.

    Wall mounted Cooker Hoods

    The first one is the most common, the Wall Mounted hood or better known as the Chimney hood. Should your hob back into a wall, you may want to consider this style. Be careful with them though, as they are quite large it could either blend seamlessly into the rest of your theme or steal the show and become the main attraction.

    Island Hoods

    The Island hood, possibly the most popular hood due to the large variety of styles it comes in. It can be the usual chimney style with a flat hood or glass and slightly curved, there are some that mimic lights and hand quite elegantly from the ceiling; for a minimalistic kitchen there is the Downdraft hood that slides down under your worktop and behind your hob when not in use and pops smoothly slides back up at a press of a button. The Island hood is used when your stove top is positioned on your island unit, it is also typically bigger than the hob in order to trap all the fumes.

    This next one attaches to the roof of your kitchen, called the Ceiling hood. It typically looks like a light – such as with the island unit – and is usually used in Modern styled kitchens.

    Built in Kitchen Extractor Hoods

    The Built-in hood slots perfectly into the kitchen unit situated above the hob. It is designed to be hidden and usually does not stick out past that of the units unless it has a pull feature where it can be enlarged to properly cover the size of the hob.

    Canopy Hoods

    Canopy cooker hoods, the almost identical twin to the Built-in hood. This cooker hood is usually fitted to the underside of your kitchen cabinet above your hob, but whereas the canopy hood is always on show, the built-in hood is not.

    Slimline

    Last but not least is the Slimline hood which like all hoods – is situated directly above your hob. This hood slots un between the units above your hob and has a longer depth than that of the unit causing it to stick out.

    Now that we have had a look at the different types of hoods, let us have a look at the other important factors involved in your final decision.

    One of the main things to consider is the size of your hob. The cooker hood needs to sufficiently cover the hob when positioned centrally above it, too small of a hood will be redundant as it will not collect the unwanted substances and odours in the atmosphere. Too big of a hood will throw the whole kitchen off balance as it will look entirely too large and take up much needed and wanted space. Extractor hoods that are placed at the back of a kitchen should roughly be the same size as the hob below it, those situated above island units should be slightly larger as to adequately collect the fumes from the air and trap grease.

    It is not only the size of the hob that plays a role, but the type too. You will undoubtably want to match your cooker hood to the hob, so it is important to find out the make and model of your stove top before making your final decision.

    Speaking of research, do you know the difference between ducted and ductless hoods? Do not worry if you do not, not many people do.

    Ducted hoods are preferred over ductless hoods as the grease, smoke and other unwanted airborne particles collected from your stove top are taken outside instead of ventilated and put back in your kitchen. This is the main differentiation between ducted and ductless hoods.

    While having a ducted hood is preferred, you are limited as to where they can be put due to the fact that it needs to be connected to a duct to move the particles outside without obstructing other installations in the wall or the ceiling of your kitchen. Ductless hoods however can be placed anywhere as it does not need to vent to the exterior of your house. The way a ductless extractor hood works is by filtering the air sucked in and releasing it back into the kitchen while collecting the grease particles and the other not so great fumes. More often than not, the filter system contains activated charcoal to help lessen or take away bad odours and smoke from the air. The downside to having a ductless hood is that it is necessary to clean it quite regularly for it to efficiently work depending in the amount of cooking done.

    Another factor to consider is the amount of noise your hood makes. Not many people view this as part of the decision-making process but do not sweep this one under the rug – it is most definitely an important element when considering your options. Any good quality and good choice hood should have a noise level of less than 65 decibels, unless of course you do not mind a bit of noise, in that case the amount can be pushed up to 70 but no more if you make a habit of socialising in your kitchen.

  • Range Cookers
    Range Cookers

    What is a Range Cooker? Well it is all in the name really, ‘range’ meaning variation or variety. This cooker most definitely does live up to the word variety as it has quite a number of different benefits. Benefits such as multiple ovens, a large hob and storage space make this cooker’s extra couple of centimetres seem like more than a worthy sacrifice.

    Range cookers come in many shapes, colours and sizes and you will want to choose the one you like the style of. Yes, style is important when it comes to choosing the best cooker as this can potentially be the focal point of your kitchen. Although, do not let the style or the design of it be the deciding factor as where you want it to look good, you need it to work even better.

    Size is an important element that one must never look over when designing your kitchen, there is no point in spending all your time and money on something you will never use. At BBK Direct, our Range cookers start at 90cm depth all the way up to 120cm. The size you decide on will depend on how much space you have available in your kitchen as well as how much cooking space you will need. Space is great, but just remember that bigger is not always better. Range cookers are expensive so do not unnecessarily get something you will not be using. If you enjoy cooking or cook quite a bit for a large number of people, bigger might just be the way to go.

    Large Range cookers usually have about six to eight burners with four separate compartments. These compartments include two ovens, a storage unit for your cooking tools, a grill compartment as well as a warming drawer. Smaller Range cookers tend to have five or six burners, two ovens and a grill. Sometimes they only have one big oven and a smaller, thinner one on the side.

    On our website, we have neatly categorized the Range cookers into four groups to better assist you with your selection.

    Duel Fuel Range Cookers

    The first group is Duel Fuel. This is the most popular of all the range cooker types as it is both electric and gas. Duel fuel ranges heat the hob or the stove top with gas and the oven with electricity. One of the advantages of this type of range cooker is the precise control you have over the temperature of the electricity to heat the oven instead of the rise and fall of temperature that usually happens with gas types. Although, unless you are a cook that really enjoys baking, you might not even notice the difference between a gas oven and an electric one.

    What About Ceramic?

    The second group is Ceramic, these are range cookers with a Ceramic hob also known as an electric cooker. Sleek, easy to clean and stylish are just a few of the words many use to describe it. Ceramic hobs use electric elements to efficiently heat the tempered ceramic glass. This type of cooker features digital touch to control the heating pad and other systems such as child or control locks, pause buttons and even timers to ensure you do not over-cook your meals. Some have special features such as automatically turning off if nothing is on the top or a residual heat indicator to show where it is too hot to touch. This form of Range cooker is most definitely for you if you have a busy household or curious children. In regard to cleaning, it is important to wipe it down as soon as it is safe to do so as spilled food can bake into the surface making cleaning and maintaining the top hard to do.

    Gas Range Cookers

    Our next group is Gas. Gas Range cookers use gas to heat the stove top as well as the oven. They heat up very quickly and prove to be more cost effective in the long run when compared to electric Range cookers as they operate on either Propane (green fuel/eco-friendly) or Natural gas (Greenhouse gas), both are relatively cheap and clean burning.  Most Gas Cookers have cast iron grates situated on the stove top as to put your pot or pan above the open flame without smothering it or damaging the top. These grates should be washed regularly in hot soapy water, rinsed and dried before placing them back on the stove top. To prevent rusting of the grates, a light coat of cooking oil can be applied to the bottom of it.

    Induction

    Last but certainly not least are Induction Range Cookers. This type of Range cooker feature modern, energy efficient and easy to clean stove top. Smart Induction technology make use of powerful and high frequency electromagnets instead of heated coils, these electromagnets create a magnetic field that heat the pan or pot instead of the surface of the hob. This Range cooker might heat up very quickly, but it cools down fast too ensuring a safe environment for all those involved. Like the Ceramic cooktop, the Induction hob also makes use of digital touch to control the settings, this not only adds to the modern look of the range cooker but offers more cooking control too. Unlike electric hobs, Induction hobs react in an instant to the changing of heat settings whereas Electric types tend to do this more slowly.  Most Induction Range cookers (as well as Ceramic Range cookers) are smooth, flat surfaces which means they are easy to clean as there are no crevices for food to fall into.

    A couple other things to consider when choosing the best Range cooker for you are the added features some range cookers have. One to look out for if you have children or perhaps grandchildren are cool touch oven doors, this means that even when your oven is on a high temperature – the door will only remain warm. With gas appliances, check around for safety and flame failure devices. To make cooking easier and less complicated, make sure the controls are easy to use and clear to see. 

  • Ovens, Hobs and Microwaves
    Ovens, Hobs and...

    Ovens, Hobs and Microwaves – in short, Kitchen Appliances; in other words, a life saver. These appliances come in many shapes and forms, each essential to the creation of a home and crucial in any design. Due to the large range of appliances, nobody really wants to do their research on which style suits them best or which appliance has which feature. All they ever really do is pick the fancy ones and put it in any available space in their kitchen. That is why, here at BBK Direct, we have taken the time and put in the effort so that you do not have to.

    Contrary to popular belief, Range cookers and Ovens are not the same. Range cookers include an oven and a hob and are always free standing. However, an oven is always built in and not free standing. There are a lot of pros to having an oven in place of a range cooker, one of them being that ovens are usually built in at eye level. This means that it is easy access and requires no bending, crouching or any form of ‘acrobatics’ on your part. As it is simple to utilise, it will allow cooks and bakers of all ages to use the kitchen appliance.  The great thing about an oven is the amount of space it offers compared to that of a range cooker as only the widest of range cookers can compete with the room an oven provides.

    For those that do not live in the kitchen or are limited on space, a single oven is most likely what you are looking for. These ovens are made to fit anywhere in the kitchen, no matter the space availability. Most of the single ovens are made to be 60cm in height leaving plenty of room to fit pans, pots and other cooking utensils inside. 

    Double ovens are most suited to larger household or for those who cook in bulk. Ultimately, a double oven are two single ovens stacked one atop the other. The biggest benefit of this oven is the dual usage, one oven can be cooking a tasty meal whilst the other is baking a delicious treat or perhaps grilling up a snack.

    Other than size being a dividing block in the Oven industry, types are the main categories

    The first are electric ovens, the most common on the market as well as being expensive to use as it takes up quite a bit of electricity. There are two type of electric ovens – Conventional and Convection ovens. Conventional ovens often heat from the bottom up which can create inconsistent cooking and cause pockets of warmer and colder air. Convection ovens on the other hand, heat up from the back which gets circulated via a fan ensuring equal amounts of hot air in every corner. Although, you need to keep in mind what you use to cook your dinner in as pots and pans with high edges could impact the way the food is cooked as the hot air may not heat up certain areas of the meal.

    Gas Ovens are next on the list and second in popularity with the public. These Ovens are a lot more expensive to buy upfront but in the long run they are cheaper than Electrical ovens. The gas oven heats quickly and cools just as fast, it is best used for roasts and pots as the air is not as dry like with electric type ovens.

    A less well-known type of Oven is the Steam Oven. A steam oven has a tank that needs to be filled before any type of cooking starts. This either needs to be done manually or if the oven has the feature, it can hook up to your house’s plumbing and have water at the ready to steam whenever you need it. They might not be as popular as the electric and gas ovens, but the demand is steadily rising due to the health benefits. As water replaces the need for oils and helps retain a lot more nutrients and minerals, this oven is favoured by those that promote healthy living. The only two cons to this oven are that it is usually more expensive than a gas or electric oven and your food will not turn out as crispy due to the moisture. 

    There are five main types of hobs. They are Ceramic, Induction, Solid Plate Electric, Gas and Gas on Glass.

    Ceramic hobs are powered by electricity and sometime features digital touch to control the heating pad and other systems such as locks to keep children from injury, timers and pause buttons to help better manage your cooking schedule. Ceramic hobs have a smooth surface, meaning they are quick and easy to clean. This type of hob makes use of electricity to efficiently heat the tempered ceramic glass.  

    Induction hobs create a magnetic field between the Induction element and the pan. This magnetic field heats the pan or pot instead of the surface of the hob, therefore is more energy efficient ensuring that only the exact amount of electricity needed is used unlike Ceramic hobs which heats up the entire surface. The Induction hob also heats up a lot quicker than that of the Ceramic hobs and cools down faster too, this creates a safe environment for any little ones involved or clumsy errors. Induction hobs are perfect for those who want a modern feel to their kitchen due to its sleek and easy to clean surface combined with digital touch Induction technology to control the settings. Another benefit of an Induction hob is that it reacts immediately to the changing of heat settings whereas Ceramic hobs tend to do this more slowly.

    The next type is Solid Plate Electric. This hob usually has four black seal plates that are heated with electricity and cool much slower than any of the other hobs on the market. For those with a budget, this hob will be most suitable.

    Gas type hobs are quick to heat and are a lot more cost effective than electric hobs. These hobs have cast iron grates set atop the surface to keep your pan above the open flame to ensure the top is not smothered or damaged. To keep them in great condition, these grates need to be washed regularly in hot soapy water and then dried before being put back in place. A light coat of cooking oil can be applied to the bottom of it to prevent it from rusting.

    Last but not least are Gas on glass hobs. Theses hobs are a sort of mixed breed of Ceramic and gas as the gas burners are placed on top of ceramic glass to ensure an ultra-modern and sleek appearance. This also makes them easier to clean but slower to heat up.

    Believe it or not, there are three main types of microwaves.

    The one we all know and love, is the Solo Microwave. This is the most cost effective, basic and simplest of the microwave types; using radio waves to heat up your food warming it quickly and evenly, some come with a defrosting option. It does not offer grilling or convection cooking like some other types. 

    Next is the Microwaves with a grill, this is essentially the same as Solo Microwave just with the added benefit of a grill. This option usually comes with metal racks on the inside to raise your food closer to the heat elements situated at the top of the microwave. There are two types of grills, Quartz and Radiant. Quartz grills heat instantly and are best used for snacks that require instant heat such as pizza, sausages, etc. Radiant grills are best for proper food as it heats slower and over a wider area, this ensures an evenly cooked meal.

    A Combi microwave, also known as a Combination microwave. It offers more cooking flexibility than the basic Solo microwave as it acts as a grill, a microwave and a convection oven. Convection cooking works by using a fan to circulate hot air to ensure quick and even cooking. These microwaves often look like mini ovens with a drop down ‘door,’ adjustable wire racks and are ideal for those with minimal space due to the amount of cooking options available. For some of the high-end combi microwaves, they benefit from a steam function as well. As mentioned before, this is ideal for those who promote healthy living as it helps the food maintain all its nutrients and vitamins.
