The Baumatic range cookers are renowned for their elegance and style and the BCD925SS is no exception, its modern and minimalist looks really set it apart from a lot of the other range cookers out there and it has the features to back up the looks. This is range cooker for someone that wants a very high quality look and feel to there kitchen with a modern feel.
Will It Fit In My Kitchen
The all important question before you get too into detail about the features are the dimensions. It could be the prefect cooker for you but if it doesn’t fit it’s not going to work out. The dimensions of this model are pretty standard and should fit into a lot of kitchens, it’s a medium size range cooker. The dimensions are as follows:
- The Height is 94mm that can be altered a few millimetres either side
- The Width is 90mm
- The depth is 60mm
These dimensions are pretty standard UK kitchen measurements but check before you make your purchase!
Style And Design
Baumatic are all about style, a lot of thought goes into there range cookers making sure that they add a bit of wow factor to your kitchen as well as cooking capability. The BCD925SS is a modern style range cooker that is finished in a stainless steel finish that will look good with most styles of kitchen no matter what colour. The hob is a very clean robust design that looks like it can hold its own with a lot of use. The pan stands are thick cast iron with a flat no fuss finish. The controls are stainless steel and hide themselves well on the front of the cooker. A really nice little touch is the manual temperature gauge that gives it a feel of quality and style as well as differentiating it from the other range cookers on the market. The front to the cooker looks simple and modern with two doors, unlike most range cookers that have four separate cavities. A really stylish range cooker that will add glamour to your home.
This might look like a range cooker that is build for style and looks and not functionality for day to day cooking. It certainly is not, it is packed with a lot of great features that will make life so much easier for you in the kitchen and give you more time to relax with friends and family.
The 5 Burner Gas Hob
The gas hob has mixed size burners that offer plenty of power. The largest is the central wok burner for Asian style cooking. This is complemented with two medium and two small burners for your other pans. Again it looks great with nicely designed enamel a pan stand. Not a bad hob that will stand up to plenty of wear and tear.
Left Hand Oven And Grill
This is the main oven and has a decent capacity at 59 litres. This is an electric fan oven that can be used as a conventional oven as well with elements at the top and bottom. There is a programmable timer for setting accurate cooking times as well as a light to keep a close eye on your food as it cooks. This oven doubles up as a grill which is fairly useful. Again this is not the best main over for this level of range cooker, the belling range cookers offer a lot more.
Right Hand Oven And Grill
On this model there are only two cavities which does limit your flexibility a bit when it comes to oven space. The right cavity is a combined oven and electric grill with variable heat and a conventional electric oven. There is a light that enables you to monitor the food as you cook. The capacity of this oven is an ample forty two litres. I have to say that this is not the best auxiliary oven in this price range with other manufacturers offering much more functionality.
One thing that most range cookers offer you is four cavities if you include the storage that can all be set at different temperatures which offers great flexibility. This model does not offer this but it does offer good space.
Summing It Up
This is a range cooker that looks great but I’m not sure that it offers mane of the benefits that most offer. With two ovens that double up as grills you can quickly use up your space as you would with a conventional cooker and the hob is fairly standard. For someone who is looking for flexibility in a range cooker this is not the one. If you are looking for style and are not too worried about the functions then it is a great purchase. It looks great and really sits apart from the crowd when it comes to style. It comes down to how you will use your cooker. One thing we haven’t mentioned though is the build quality and this is good. The Baumatic brand has a great reputation and this means what this range cooker does offer it does well. It does come with a good warranty of two years with a five year parts warranty.
If you are looking for pure style and looks then this could be for you.
