There are three main types of range cookers. Dual fuel range cookers provide the best of both worlds, combining an electric oven with a gas hob. Gas hobs allow for instant and accurate heat paired with the reliability of an electric oven, making dual fuel the most popular choice of range cooker. However, you can also find solely electric range cookers, often with a ceramic or induction hob. Gas range cookers are often a good choice for saving money, as gas cookers are generally cheaper to run than electric.
