Please note, this is a general description. Always contact a qualified installer for help with your specific installation.


When ordering your dual fuel or gas fuel cooker from us, it is important to notify us about the type of gas you intend to use for your stove. Different types of gas have different types of pressure and different burner orifices are required in the gas burner of the stove. We offer all of our gas cookers with orifice sizes that will fit natural gas or LPG (propane). Please let us know what kind of gas you wish to use for your range cooker, then we will ensure that you get the correct orifice size fitted before delivery. Information relating to what type of gas the range cooker is approved for is available in the information relating to each product.

Gas installation for range cookers

Our gas cookers gas cookers have a gas connection point at the back of the stove where a connection valve and an approved hose with a hose clamp may be attached. Please note that hose and clamp are not included on delivery. A different type of hose will be required depending on the gas you use. Be sure to use an approved gas hose and enlist the help of a qualified gas installer. In most cases, installation by a qualified installer is a necessary condition in order for the warranty on the range cooker to be valid.

Risks with gas?

Having a gas range cooker in your home means that you need to pay greater attention to fire safety compared to an electric range cooker. On the other hand, it is important to point out that modern range cookers are significantly safer than their predecessors and have safety catches on the knobs which make it impossible to accidentally turn them on and risk gas leakage. The knobs are connected to a spark ignition that causes the flow of gas to automatically cease as soon as the flame goes out. It has been the law since 2010 that all cookers must include a flame failure device (FFD) as standard. So you can rest assured that all the stoves we sell offer FFD. During power outages it is still possible to use the burners by resorting to manual ignition. Whit that said you should always be careful when gas is involved!

Installation of natural gas

The natural gas grid in the UK requires a connection of 20 mBar (G20). If you already have gas cooker a gas cooker in your home that is connected to natural gas mains, it will be simple to replace the stove. However, if you want to install a new connection to the natural gas network, the cost will depend on how close to the network you live. Alternatively, an LPG (propane) powered stove may be an option for those who live too far away from the gas grid.

Installation of LPG (propane)

LPG is a good alternative for those who would like to enjoy the benefits of a gas stove but do not have access to the gas mains. In this case, you connect your gas stove to an LPG/propane cylinder instead. Needless to say, you will have to replace the cylinder every now and then, but a gas bottle lasts a long time before needing to be replaced and many people opt to have two bottles at home, one in use and one in reserve. A stove that uses LPG requires the gas burner orifices to be designed for 30 mBar (G30). Notify us when ordering and we will install the correct burner orifices before delivery. Otherwise this can be rectified by modifying the stove later. There are rules for where you can store the gas bottles and how large they may be. The gas bottles should be stored in a ventilated area. If you store your bottle in a kitchen cabinet, the cabinet should be ventilated at both the top and bottom. Many people store their bottles outside the house in a sheltered area with a hose that leads in to connect to the stove. Consult a qualified gas installer to ensure that all rules are followed to make sure that your warranty is valid. R Brands whose range cookers are approved for use with LPG (propane): Lofra.

Installation of all electric range cookers

Almost all our cookers are supplied without a power cable. A range cooker can be connected to the mains in various ways. You can get single-phase or three-phase connections, plugs or fixed installations. Check which connections are possible in your home and with the type of stove you are buying. Information about this comes with your stove, but if you are unsure or want to know more, please contact our customer service for assistance.

A range cooker with a fixed connection must be installed by an electrical installation company. We recommend 20 Amps and a 3-phase connection in order to have all ovens and heating zones running simultaneously on a large induction cooker. For gas stoves with dual-fuel ovens.

Should you do it yourself?

You can install a range cooker that has a plug yourself, but the type of stove with a fixed mains connection must be installed by an electrical installation company. Choose a company that works with appliances and kitchen installations. Products that are to be connected to the natural gas network must be installed by a qualified technician. It is also good to investigate if there are any restrictions in your home insurance regarding the installation of a gas range cooker. Most of the time there is no restriction, but this may vary between different companies and different types of insurance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find answers to some of the most common questions we get relating to the installation of range cookers. Still have questions? Do not hesitate to contact our experienced customer service.
This can vary from cooker to cooker and is often stated in the product description. Our products all have an excellent energy class, which means they are of high standard when it comes to energy efficiency.
We recommend 20 Amps and a 3-phase connection if you want to have all ovens and warm zones on at the same time when using a large induction stove.
Your electrician can install a socket, but because the plug itself is quite large, the space behind the range cooker is often not big enough and therefore a fixed connection may be preferable.
Most of our cookers do not come with a socket or cable because they should be installed with a fixed connection. Stoves generally come without a power cable because you can choose, in agreement with your electrician, how you want to connect your range cooker. Not everyone chooses the same connection method.
You can install a range cooker with a plug yourself but cookers whit a fixed connection must be installed by an electrical installation company. Products that are to be connected to natural gas must also be installed by a qualified technician. However, you can install an LPG range cooker on your own. However, please note that the warranty sometimes also requires that you use an authorized installer for LPG (Propane).
Today’s modern stoves generally feature safety ignition, yes. Ask our customer service if you are unsure about a specific product.
If you specify which type of gas your cooker is to be used with, we will install the correct orifice size before delivery. Burner orifices for another type of gas may sometimes be included in the delivery in case the need for conversion arises in the future.
Yes, provided that the cooker is approved for use with more than one type of gas.
There are rules relating to where you can keep gas bottles, as well as how large they may be.
It may be a good idea to run the oven at a high heat for 1h before the first use. This is because there may be chemical residues left over from production. Do not forget to remove any plastic on the cooker and in the oven before doing this.
An induction hobe makes several different sounds during use. For example, if one of the cooking plates is on low power, a snapping sound can be heard, while on high power it may instead emit a humming noise. The heating zones also have a cooling fan that prevents the electronics from becoming overheated. You will therefore also experience a rushing noise from the ventilator, which may be heard even after switching off the cooker. All these sounds are quite normal, but should not be so loud that they disturb you. If you experience more noise than described above, it is probably because the pans you use are not optimal for induction hobs.
Your cooking pans should ideally have a thick bottom of magnetic iron, but many manufacturers today use other materials. Saucepans made of 100% copper, aluminium or non-magnetic stainless steel unfortunately will not work on your induction hob because it uses magnetism. If your induction hob makes snapping or buzzing noises, it is a good idea to review your kitchen utensils and possibly replace some pots and pans.
You can easily test which of your pots or pans can be used with the induction hob. All you need is a simple magnet (such as a refrigerator magnet). Put the magnet against the bottom of your pan and if the magnet sticks, the pan will work on your induction hob. However, to get the absolute best effect with your induction hob, you should use cooking equipment with bottoms made of 100% iron.
