    In this comprehensive and concise review, we have researched the best gas cookers to provide you with what we are worthy to be in our list of the 10 best gas cookers.

    In the UK the electric cookers sales outweigh gas cookers sales and there are many reasons for this. The main reason is most likely due to installation – every house has an electric point for an oven, but if you have never owned a gas cooker you will have the added cost of gas connection.

    This shouldn’t concern you, if you are in the market for a freestanding gas cooker many of the top cooker manufacturers are still producing freestanding gas cookers and the big retailers such as Curry’s, John Lewis and AO offer a fantastic choice of gas cookers to choose from as you will find out in this review.

Lock in the heat with its super-secure door, and you’ll spend less than you’d imagine in the long run thanks to the incredible energy efficiency rating.
    This is a classical design for a cooker, but that makes it all the more appealing. Built with a gentle aesthetic, it should be nice and easy to slide into any kitchen space. All your dials and functions are at the front, and this really is a gas cooker that benefits from having fewer frills and embellishments than most.

    Belling BI902G Gas Cooker

    Belling BI902G Gas Cooker

    This classic oven promises to look the part in almost any kitchen space, but it’s not all about looks. It’s a double oven with a brilliant energy rating, a full grill, and a price that is pretty much spot on as far as value is concerned. As a gas system, it’s amazingly efficient, and there is plenty of space here for most couples and small families to do the odd bit of dinner.
    What we really like about this oven is the fact that it comes with a minute minder. This means that once it comes close to the time for your dinner to be ready, you’ll get fair warning. The dual cavity will serve you well if you want to grill in one and cook in the other. The oven is also coated in enamel, meaning it’s really resistant against nasty grease.

    Beko KTG611K Gas Cooker

    Beko KTG611K Gas Cooker

    This Beko gas cooker is the epitome of great value. It can be bought for under £350, yet has some features which are more commonly found in units over twice the price.
    There is a main conventional oven which is great at preparing a range of foods, from meat joints to muffins and al forno dishes. Then there’s a separate grill chamber which can add the finishing touch to lasagnes or cottage pies.
    If you have been searching for a new gas cooker for a while, but are put off by models which look over-complicated and hard to control, then the simple dials of this Beko will be welcomed. Simply turn to fire it up, and adjust the power depending on how far they are twisted.
    The ceramic interior keeps the coating relatively clean – just wipe when cool to get rid of any crumbs and spills. The door inner glass is also removable for when you need to give it a scrub, and an interior light will allow you to both check on the cooking process and where needs some cleaning attention.

    Electra SG50B Gas Cooker

    Electra SG50B Gas Cooker

    Electra aren’t the biggest name in the game, but their cooker hoods and appliances which we have previously tested have all passed with flying colours.
    This cooker is no different. It is a standard four burner hob, with one cavity including a grill and easy to use dials to get everything just right. It is also a little bit smaller than many others around, making it perfect if you have a smaller than average gap in your kitchen.
    While it may be basic, with just one setting on the grill and additions such as a timer or screen missing, but for under £200 we can’t complain and are sure you will have many years of use out of it.

    The main conventional oven is good for both slow cooking and baking, as heat rises so the dishes are thoroughly cooked. It also means they are hotter at the top, for a crisp finish. A second oven gives you some extra space when it comes to the bigger meal times, and there is also a grill.

    How to Buy a Gas Cooker

    You will see from the individual gas cooker reviews above there you have many considerations and comparisons to make when deciding on the best gas cookers for your needs.

    Here are the main points for you to consider to help you with your buying decision:

    • Cooker Capacity – Will you need to use two ovens at the same time. For example, if you were having friends for dinner would you be likely to cook a starter that you could do under the grill or in the top oven while using the main oven for your main course or dessert? Or maybe you love to bake and would use the bottom oven for baking a cake while the top oven-cooked dinner.
    • Cooker Dimensions – It is most likely that you are replacing an old freestanding gas cooker for a new one. When it comes to buying your new gas cooker check the size of the space that you have to slot your new oven into. Check the room you have available in your kitchen and then take a look at the dimensions of the cooker before purchasing. Most freestanding gas cookers have standard widths – 50cm (500mm), 44cm (550mm) and 60cm (600mm).
    • Additional Cooker Features – Take a look at the extra cooker features widely available and decide which ones you absolutely can’t live without and those that might be ‘nice’. These might include, slow cook functions, timers, enamel pan supports, instant heat-ups, catalytic liners, easy to control knobs and numerous power settings.
    • Hob Space – Check that you will have the right number of hobs and burners and that they are well spaced if you own larger pans such as woks. Most 60cm wide gas cookers come with a four burner gas hob.
      If you are short on space you may wish to consider a gas cooker with a glass lid. This will act as a handy splashback but also provide you with additional kitchen space when not in use.
    • Gas Cooker Safety – Safety features are important, especially when working with gas, and we have highlighted many that come with an auto-shutoff function.

    What Types Of Gas Cooker Types Are There?

    All gas cookers are freestanding, this means they are all-in-one, stand-alone cooking appliances. They stand on the floor and in most cases slot between your kitchen units.

    As they are all-in-one they will include a grill, oven and a four burner gas hob with many models having double ovens for extra cooking space.

    Single Gas Cookers

    Single gas cookers have the oven and a grill within one cavity and tend to be 60cm wide and 80cm high and fit into 60cm gaps.

    Cavity sizes will vary. For couples of households of single occupancy, these may be more than adequate to cater for your needs as it’s not unusual for us to use smaller appliances such as toasters, or health grills in addition to cookers.

    Double Gas Cookers

    Double gas cookers offer more space and greater flexibility for cooking. Some may say they are the best gas cookers to buy because you can bake cakes and cook main meals simultaneously by using both the bottom and top oven.

    Some models even have warming drawers, great for warming plates before serving your meals or for proofing bread. Double ovens are a big hit with larger families due to the larger oven capacities they offer.

    Eye Level Gas Cookers

    Eye-level gas cookers are not as popular as they used to be so finding them is slightly more challenging. However, if you are tall or have back problems you may prefer an eye level gas oven to avoid bending down.

    FLAVEL FHLG51W-gas-cooker-with-eye-level-grill

    Range Gas Cookers

    Range gas cookers are larger than freestanding gas cookers and are available in widths from 70cm (700mm) – 120cm (1200mm) and provide plenty of space.

    With this extra size comes extra space and additional cooking compartments in addition to the main oven enabling you to cook multiple dishes at the same time. So you may wish to slow cook part of your meal such as a joint of meat whilst using a higher heat to cook potatoes.

    Dual Fuel Cookers

    Strictly speaking, some may argue that a dual fuel cooker doesn’t sit within the category of best gas cookers, however, we feel it important to mention this contender.

    Although not all homes have a gas supply, they do have electric and as such if you do have a gas supply, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with a dual fuel cooker. Dual fuel means your main oven will be electric, and you will also enjoy the benefits of an electric grill but your top can benefit from a gas hob.
