Separate ovens. Duel fuel with LPG connections supplied.
Largest hob at front. Open door grilling with tiny grill pan.
The Rangemaster Toledo 90 duel fuel is a brilliant compromise if you haven't the space for a wider range. Five gas hobs (including high power wok hob), two separate ovens and a separate grill. My last oven was massive so I expected to feel constrained by having two smaller ovens, but quite the opposite. There was no problem fitting in the 26lb turkey we had at Christmas, and it was great to have the second oven for all the trimmings. There is a plate warming rack for the smaller oven, but why bother when the grill area gets warm enough from the main oven to warm up plates and serving dishes? I'd set my heart on a closed door grill, but this isn't an option with the Toledo. I'm also irritated by the fact that the largest hob is the one at the front, so when I'm trying to bring a pan of water to the boil quickly, it's in the way of all the other things I am cooking. Perhaps it's just a personal quirk. Apart from that, I think this is a good value, good looking range, that has given me the benefit of gas cooking (via LPG) for the first time in 15 years.
