I am seriously considering buying a Rangemaster

This answer was rated:

I am seriously considering buying a Rangemaster Professional+ 90 Dual Fuel Range Cooker. We currently have a Stoves range with Stoves cooker hood which is still adequate and I don't really want to replace. The clearance of the Stoves cooker hood is 70cm from the cooker. Is this sufficient or do we need to purchase a new hood.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Just begun to consider, but have decided to go for the Rangemaster Cooker
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: No, will be purchasing through John Lewis probably unless it's more efficient and quicker via yourselves or any recommended supplier
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Don't think so. Think that the existing Stoves is a similar kind of appliance. It's just getting old with oven thermostat now not working and with a kitchen revamp needed!
JA: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Bear with me, will just have to check information. Will be 2 minutes max!

Hi

Looking at the techincal specs on this it says a minimum height of 650mm (65 cm) above the hob so as your hood is 70 cm then this is fine and will be ok installed like that.

Hope this helps.
