As bastions of Britishness fall by the wayside year on year, and the Country struggles to re-establish itself in a new World Order in uncertain times, it is a great tonic to read about an unshaken image of Britain standing the test of time for over 200 years.

It is almost inconceivable now to imagine a world where the United States of America was only one year old, freshly independent from Great Britain. But in 1777 Warwickshire, this was the world of the enterprising John Flavel. In that year, he established a foundry specialising in vapour baths, inspired by the spas of Leamington, soon moving on to manufacturing cooking stoves.

In 1803, the enterprising manufacturer moved to Leamington Spa, where generations of the Flavel family were to become civic leaders in the town and the factory became a major local employer.
The company, later to be known as Rangemaster, was responsible for the manufacture of the historic Kitchener, pictured opposite.

Notable owners of this British built domestic institution of the 19th Century included Queen Victoria, Edward VII, the King of Italy and the Emperor of Germany.But how is this relevant in today's Britain, and how could it offer benefits for your home in the 21st Century?

As the need for efficiency grows, it's easy to lose sight of the style and elegance of the historic cookers and stoves of our past. But their imperial origins have laid a direct path to the Rangemaster Range Cookers we see today.

Rangemaster range cookers have inherited all the elegance and style of the cookers and stoves of bygone years, and combined them with the efficiency and functionality that is demanded of today's products.
