Our January products have been selected by Sales Assistant Emir, who has worked at our Malmesbury store for two years.
Before I started working at Knees, I was a Chef for over 20 years. Moving to retail was a bit of a change but my hands on experience has been invaluable and I really enjoy helping our customers get the right product for the way they like to cook. When someone is interested in buying a new oven I find out about the time they have to cook, if there are any particular styles of food they like to prepare and the style and layout of their kitchen. Different ovens suit different people.
My own personal favourite is the NEXUS Rangemaster. It’s got so many brilliant functions: simmering and rapid power options mean I can be flexible with timing, and the Steadfast™ pan supports are great and hold pans steady even when I go into full on ‘chef mode’. The Handy Rack swings out on the main oven door and is a really good idea to make sure you don’t have to struggle getting hot, heavy dishes out of the oven. I also really like the bread proving drawer which heats up to somewhere between 30 and 45°C. It’s made a big difference to my bread-making. Finally, it looks really slick in my kitchen. I would highly recommend this range cooker to everyone who loves to cook.
The other products I would like to recommend are Stellar pans. They have a nice heavy base so the heat is distributed evenly and a clever lid system for draining. Plus they look really nice with my range and are great value for money.
