COOKER BUYING GUIDE
How to select the perfect Scanfrost cooker for your home
We often believe it is easy to get right products for the kitchen. Not many people realize that selecting the right appliances will make your kitchen operate better. When choosing the perfect cooker, here are the main questions to take into consideration.
- Do you have sufficient space?
- How fast can the cooker cook?
- What is the warranty on the product and the customer service network for the company?
Space: Is the first thing you consider, so measure up your kitchen and decide how much space you have for that desired cooker.
How fast it can cook: No one wants to spend extra time in the kitchen. With Scanfrost’s fast and efficient cookers, cooking couldn’t be easier.
Warranty: Everyone likes to have a warranty on their purchased products. The Scanfrost brand assures quality and service with every purchase.
Go for the 5 series cookers, measuring 50 X 55 cm if you own a compact kitchen. This series is perfect for cooking everyday meals, so if you don`t plan on cooking dinner for all your friends all the time, this range will be perfect for you.
Also, you`ll need to consider convenience when choosing a model. The 5 series offers a combination of:
- 4 gas burners (Check out gas cooker models 5400 | 5402 SS | 5402 B)
- 3 gas burners +1 hot plate (Check out gas & hot plate cooker model 5312)
- 2 gas burners + 2 hot plates (Check out gas & hot plate cooker model 5222)
- 4 hot plates (Check out hot plate only model: 5042)
Gas burners are preferred due to the fact that they heat quickly and they operate on either propane or natural gas, both of which are relatively inexpensive. Still, a hot plate will increase the flexibility of the cooker, especially for slow cooking, simmering. Also, it helps if your kitchen is especially windy.
If you have a slightly bigger kitchen and are willing to sacrifice a little more space for cooking, check out the 6 series cookers, measuring 60 x 60 cm.
Once you have decided that this is the size for you, start thinking about other features that will impact you cooking and the time you spend on cleaning after.
The 6 series offers a combination of gas and electric models:
- 4 gas burners (Check out gas cooker model 6402)
- 3 gas burners + 1 electric burners (Check out gas & electric model 6312)
- 2 gas burners + 2 electric burners (Check out gas & electric model 6222)
Having at least 1 electric burner can bring some advantages to cooking regarding utility, safety and space usage, considering that they are easier to ignite and more stable.
Designed with a wok burner as well, models 6222 & 6312 will be perfect if you plan on cooking using a range of techniques like stir frying, steaming, pan frying, deep frying, poaching, boiling, braising, searing, stewing, making soup and smoking.Also, wok burners are 30% more efficient regular burners.
If space is not an issue for you and you usually cook for a large family, then we suggest you consider the 9 series cookers, measuring 90 x 55 cm.
These cookers feature an array of burners for a more efficient way of cooking. It will make your cooking faster, cleaner and more convenient.
