I’m Paul and I have been working in the electrical and large-appliance industry for over a decade. Whilst taking on my own kitchen renovation in 2017, I saw that there was a lack of quality cooker reviews and took it upon myself to create a site that offered in-depth and independent advice for other potential consumers.

The Mission

  • To identify the best cookers and cooking implements available in the UK.
  • To curate articles that are free from jargon and present the pros and cons of each item so you can make an informed choice.
  • To seek out the best prices at the most trusted retailers.

Who We Work With

I have carefully selected a small group of well established retailers who offer not only fair prices but have a reputation that means you can trust them. My favourite retailers and those you will find featured on Cooker Base are:


Currys, also known as Currys PC World, are a well know British high street retailer specialising in home appliances and electronics. Their online store includes one of, if not, the largest collections of cookers anywhere, including a number of budget brands exclusive to them.


A relative newcomer compared to some, ao.com started in the year 2000 and has become synonymous with online shopping for cookers, white goods and electricals. As on online specialist they provide excellent supporting information, free home delivery on many items and additional installation/ removal services.


Hughes is another well know brand from the British high street that has been in business for over 100 years. They offer a broad selection of cookers and some of the best prices on microwave ovens.

Appliances Direct

There’s one stand out reason to buy from Appliances direct and that is their prices. With no high street presence their aim is to sell cookers at the lowest possible price. Whilst they don’t have the widest selection we will always refer to them if they offer the best deal to Cooker Base readers.


Amazon are not the ideal place to buy a cooker but are an excellent option for cleaning products, pots & pans and other accessories. With a little searching you will not only find the best price but you can also get them delivered quickly and for free as part of your Amazon Prime membership.
