1. A central heating system and cooker in one neat package

Beneath the classically beautiful exterior of a Rayburn lies a highly efficient combined heating and cooking system that creates mouth-watering dishes, a wonderfully warm home and piping hot water, just when you need it. What’s more, with the added convenience of having all your heating, hot water and cooking in one, you can use valuable additional space for other appliances – or creative space!


2. Workhorse in the home

Nothing’s more honest than a Rayburn. Throughout history Rayburn has been inseparable from life in the country. When Shire horses ploughed the fields and generations of families worked the land, a Rayburn range was always at the centre of family life providing heating, hot water and cooking for all.


3. Better food

The Rayburn is a brilliant cooker that produces amazing succulent food from cast iron ovens. Using the principle of indirect heat, the ovens gently cook food and lock in flavour, moisture and goodness.


4. The green choice

With solid fuel and ‘A’ efficiency rated gas and oil options, the Rayburn is the ideal choice for those who care for the environment as much as they care about good food and a warm home.


5. Design classic

The iconic smooth lines, attractive colours and solid reliability of a Rayburn have created a design classic that blends in perfectly with any home. The compact dimensions of the 200 Series perfectly suit smaller kitchens, whilst the 600 has the largest hotplate on the market and a main oven that’s a full 16% bigger than other smaller Rayburn models.


6. Proud heritage

For 65 years, the Rayburn has been made by skilled craftsmen at the company’s historic foundry in Coalbrookdale, Shropshire – the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. We are hugely proud that time honoured traditions of skilled craftsmen have been passed down from one generation to the next and that each and every model is made here in the UK.


7. Options and colours to suit every home

Choice of fuel is becoming increasingly important so we have a range of fuel options to choose from. These include wood, solid fuel such as manufactured smokeless fuel (MSF) or peat briquettes, propane gas, natural gas and kerosene oil. Plus with seven colour options to choose from, you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your kitchen.


8. Controllable, flexible and programmable

In keeping with the latest home heating and hot water systems, all modern Rayburn cookers are fully programmable, fitted with thermostats. Some even benefit from digital controls. Sophisticated digital sensors monitor both the oven and boiler to ensure constant temperatures and an advanced control unit will alert you of any issues. The flexibility to decide when you need your Rayburn on or off, in turn means lower fuel bills.


9. 70% of every Rayburn is made from recycled materials

Unlike other types of cooker, every Rayburn is almost completely recyclable, with 70% of each Rayburn made from used materials such as lamp posts, drain covers, old cast iron cookers, old machinery and much more.


10. A wide range of boilers to power any size of home

From the smallest model in our 200 Series that can fuel two or three radiators, to the largest of the 800 Series that can heat up to 30 radiators, there’s a boiler to suit any size of home. What’s more, the use of the very latest boiler design and burner technologies deliver the high levels of efficiency you would expect from modern heating systems.
