Stoves Richmond 2018 - Familiar Elegance, Even More Refinement

Stoves have launched a completely revised and re-engineered collection of range cookers which takes their existing Richmond and Sterling styles and sets them on course confidently into the future. The new cookers not only look and feel great, a whole new list of features should gain the attention of many new customers who will love what is on offer from this historic and highly reputable UK brand.


The Same but Better

The Stoves Richmond has become hugely popular thanks to its very becoming looks, which manage to be homely and traditional whilst giving a very modern edge. This means it can look equally stunning in a traditional or country cottage setting, or in a modern kitchen looking for some softness and balance. A great formula, and Stoves have retained and refined this look for 2018, as well as making available a wider range of choice by segmenting the offering into standard Richmond and Richmond Deluxe models, the latter being a more feature-rich range which stretches the pricing up towards £2500. In doing so these solid and beautiful range cookers are competing more directly with their biggest rival, Rangemaster, which should prove interesting and is very good news for the consumer.

At the core of the Richmond is a new


frame - a one-piece steel construction which underpins every cooker and provides a very sturdy platform on which all the other components - all revised and improved - are mounted. The Richmond has always felt solid, but these improvements really do give these remarkable range cookers a high quality feel that is immediately obvious when you open and close a door. The new


cast iron pan supports have been redesigned from sunken to raised, giving better protection to the surrounding hotplate frame, and there is a new half-flat/half-ribbed griddle plate with every dual fuel or gas model, as well as a wok support on Deluxe.

All Richmond models have A-rated ovens with Stoves’ excellent easy-clean enamel interiors. The grill cavity doubles as a conventional oven, and 100 and 110cm formats have a slow-cook oven bottom right. The Richmond comes in three widths: 90, 100 and 110cm, with gas, dual fuel and electric models in each of these widths (all gas is available on Deluxe models only). Painted in a specialist


gloss finish, two colours are available: Classic Cream (a paler shade than the previous Champagne, following consumer feedback) and Black.

Standard or “Core” Models

With the same high build quality and overall improvements as the Deluxe models, and available in dual fuel or induction, the standard Richmond retains the specification level of the previous generation, but with the more evolved revisions of a full width


on telescopic runners, the new


with large LED display (white) and simple touch controls, improved


telescopic shelves and a more powerful dual control 4kW wok burner. On the 90cm models the tall oven gets the name


, with its impressive 83 litre capacity. New


fan oven technology ensures an even temperature throughout the cavity. At time of launch prices range from
£1495 and £2295
