In all 5 models, the oven sizes are the same. A top oven is thermostatically controlled. The hot plate temperature is relative to the oven temperature. You have complete control over the cooker temperature and timing.

These ovens use heating oil or gas-oil/diesel/gozole for France, Europe, farms and boats.

Running costs
The hot plate will heat up to boiling in 4-5 minutes, whilst the oven takes 25 minutes to get to 180C from cold. A timer can be used with the ovens, and the cooker used as an efficient room heater by leaving the cooker thermostat on, say, 100C, and timing it to come on with the central heating. In colder weather the oven temperature is set higher.  A radiator in most kitchens is not then required. The cooker will also be ready to use. However, in the summer and on warm days, the cooker can just be turned on when required, saving a lot of expensive fuel.

Under £400 a year of oil ( £240.00 gas) for cooking & heating your kitchen!
We’ve calculated that, based on our typical usage values, your oil-fired cooker could cost under £400 to run a year for all your cooking requirements, plus heating your kitchen.

Under £140 a year for cooking only!
Based on our typical usage values, your oil-fired cooker could cost under £140 to run a year for all your cooking requirements.

Cooking usage based on:
2kW/hour warm up + 3kW/hour cooking
2 hours cooking per day = 8kW/day
10.3 kW/litre @ 50p litre of oil = £0.38 / day
352 days (allowing for 2 weeks holiday) = £133.76 per annum, gas @ 3p/kW just £ 80.00 a year.

Cost Comparisons
We could use electricity to heat the ovens, like an Aga range cooker Total Control, an ESSE EC4I or any of the Everhot range,  but as electricity is mostly made in the UK from coal and gas, it is a lot more expensive @ 14p/kW. So an electric iron range cooker will cost 14p x 8kW x 350 days to run. This gives a total cost of £ 325 per annum, and considerably more if a lot of cooking is done and the cooker used as a room heater. Click here to see Aga range cooker Total Control figures.

If the range cooker is used as a room heater in the place of a central heating radiator at the rate of 3kW/hour and used for three hours in the morning, two at lunchtime and from three – ten in the evening, 12 hours per day for say 210 days a year, the electric cooker would cost a staggering £1,130 a year, but the oil fired Thornhill Range Cooker just £393.12! A lot of the time a warm cooker in the kitchen and a wood stove in the sitting room is sufficient to heat the whole house.
