There’s so much pressure on our time and money these days that fewer households sit down to a full roast dinner on a Sunday, which means that our ovens can sometimes begin to feel a little neglected. Then, all of a sudden, we’ve invited twelve hungry guests for Christmas dinner and expect the cooker to go from 0 to 60 in one frantic morning of Christmas cooking. Unsurprisingly some of our electric ovens don’t make it, and the family is left trying to squeeze a raw turkey into the microwave.
How to avoid Christmas Cooker Repairs
Here are our tips for avoiding the need for Christmas cooker repairs and cold turkey dinner disasters:
• Check that you have the right size of roasting tins (you’ll probably need more than one roasting tin) to avoid damage to the inside of your oven or strained hinges and the need for oven door repairs
• Plan your menu so cooking times can be staggered to take the pressure off the cooker element and you (if some dishes can be cooked the day before that can really help)
• Give your cooker a gentle trial run a couple of weeks before Christmas. If there are any rattles or funny smells call in an oven repair engineer immediately, before the last-minute rush, to replace any worn or corroded parts. Most professional cooker repair specialists carry stocks of electric cooker elements, fans for fan oven repairs and other spare parts for cookers.
With the cooker working as it should you might even find yourself with a spare few seconds to greet your guests and enjoy your Christmas morning together as delicious smells waft from the kitchen!
