The Heritage Standard range cooker is meticulously built and hand finished using a combination of cast iron, heavy section steel and quality ceramics for durability and high levels of heat retention. This is aided by unparalleled levels of insulation to prevent wasted heat and keep cooking temperatures constant.
The serviceable components used are of extremely high quality: Honeywell, Bentone, Danfoss, Sterling – all of which are top quality burner and control manufacturers within the boiler industry.
In cold weather, the cooker burner can be switched to ‘continuous’ giving a constant background warmth in the kitchen. The temperature may be set to a comfortable level of your choosing and additional heat obtained by raising the insulated covers.
In warmer weather, when ‘traditional’ range cookers are let out for the season, simply switch the cooker to ‘timed mode’ on your programmer or set the oven at a low temperature for a cooler room (and even lower fuel bills) while still retaining the instant comfort of a traditional range for those colder mornings and evenings.
The Standard responds quickly to instructions; from cold, it is cooking within 20 minutes, a further 10 minutes and roasting temperatures are achieved in the main oven. The lower oven operates around half the temperature of the top oven.
Unlike many older style range cookers, once the thermostat is set on the Heritage range, the temperature will stay there as long as required. With the Trio, the third oven operates at a temperature between the other two ovens.
The Heritage Standard is a similar size to a two oven Aga. It can have a conventional chimney/flue or low-level fan flue, making it possible to be situated almost anywhere.
