Herefordshire Life looks at new trends in traditional-style cookers.


The Redfyre Electric is a revolutionary electric traditional range cooker (and therefore not needing a flue) perfectly designed for today's lifestyle. It is more than just a cooker: it adds style and warmth, and will become the focal point of your kitchen. Yet this is combined with modern cooking technology, with the option of induction hobs to give you the most control, speed and efficiency available. And Redfyre's patented Warmfront technology enables you to control the warmth of the cooker body. It's a perfect combination of classic design with modern technology.

The Redfyre Electric can be positioned anywhere in the kitchen: all it needs is a standard 40-amp cooker socket to be wired into. No expensive building alterations are needed: and it is remarkably quick and simply to install. And if you move house, you can take it with you.


Since its establishment by Friedrich Wamsler in Munich in 1875, the company has been a leading innovator in the field of kitchen and heating appliances. In the 1950s it developed the very first washing machine to incorporate an integral spin dryer; and in the 1970s it introduced a range of flat-packed gas fires.

Today, however, the name of Wamsler is mainly known for manufacturing solid fuel cookers and stoves which are sold throughout Europe.

In rural areas, Wamsler's central heating cookers have a particular advantage as they allow householders to burn readily available logs from local sources. In fact, if you live in the countryside, Wamsler makes greener cooking, central heating and domestic hot water a truly practical proposition.

Anthracite, manufactured smokeless fuels and peat turfs/briquettes can also be burned in Wamsler appliances, as each firebox incorporates a grate with a riddling facility.
