    The Best Electric Cooker 2020

    1.
    AEG CCB6761ACM

    AEG CCB6761ACM

    This is a stainless steel cooker with multiple functions, meaning that it’s always nice and easy to bake, cook, grill and more. It’s rated as one of the most energy-efficient ovens of its kind on the market right now, too, meaning that it’s never likely to run up hefty bills.
    This cooker even boasts catalytic liners, which means if you have ever struggled with getting nasty bits of ground-on food up and moving from the inside of your oven cavities before, this unit will do more than plenty to take care of things for you. It’s just a case of taking a simple wipe down once you’re done with cooking for the day.
    What’s perhaps most interesting about this unit is the fact that it offers a fairly unique SteamBake option. As you might imagine, this option lets you harness the power of steam in-cavity, meaning that you can steam and cook through for crispy, delicious bakes. It’s likely to be a great asset for budding bakers as well as pros.

    AEG CIB6740ACM

    AEG CIB6740ACM

    With a nice design on the outside and packed with features on the inside, this is a great cooker for anyone who wants to spend that bit more but still make it well worth the money.
    The A energy rating makes it environmentally friendly and cheaper to run so you’ll be saving some of hat money here. 112 litres of capacity in all makes it brilliant for larger households which often struggle with trying to cram the chips and everything else for dinner in, and there are four burners at the top too so you can make some vegetables.
    You get three shelves included which already makes it a winner, as some other models seriously lack. A grill can be found in both oven chambers which is much more flexible than a lot of other models, and you have the option to use just half of it too.
    Despite this being one of the priciest, we think you get heaps for your money and this will appeal to some of you more than trying to find the cheapest option. And it is an induction hob, which is worth the extra alone.

    Which is the Best Electric Cooker?

    If you are wondering which is the best electric cooker then you are in the perfect spot. You can find the best electric cookers on this page as we break down all of the best features of each one.

    Buying a cooker sure to last you for years to come takes a lot of research and consideration. We have made the job easier by offering you our list of favourite cookers and we’ll also offer advice on what features you need to look out for. The best cooker for one person may not be the ideal pick for somebody else, it is relative to your household.

    Take a look at functions and things that you should factor in before investing in your new electric cooker.

    • Double or Single – Something often asked is whether you should buy a single or double cooker. This depends on your needs, if you’d like to use a grill and oven at the same time then you will need a double oven that allows you to cook sides, main dishes and more, all at once. If not then you can purchase a single electric cooker. There are single models that provide huge capacity.
    • Energy Efficiency – In this day and age, there is no reason to venture into C-rated energy efficiency. There are plenty of A and B rated energy cookers. Not only is that better for our environment but it will also save you significant money on your energy bill.
    • Function – Take a look at added extras such as Bluetooth compatibility, slow cooker features and keep warm functions. They are great additions and worth spending a little extra on but generally, all you need is different power settings, a grill and a fan that spreads heat evenly.
    • Self Clean – Eliminate the dreaded chore of cleaning out your oven with the self-cleaning functions. You can find cookers with enamel and special liners that absorb grease.
    • Dimensions – Before committing to a particular choice you will need to make sure that you check the dimensions of the cooker and what you have available in your kitchen. This list provides a range of cookers including compact ovens, double ovens and single ovens.
    • Capacity – For those preparing meals for an entire family, you will need to take a close look at the capacity. There are some huge cavities of 70-litres plus.
    • Design – If you are spending money on a working, innovative cooker then you want it to be stylish too. Find one that matches your kitchen theme and enjoy its pleasing exterior.
