A COOKER hood designed by a team of experts in Chester has pride of place in the kitchen of one of the most famous addresses in the world.
Chester-based online retailer, Rangecookers Appliances, is enjoying the limelight after its Rangecookers Select 90 slab hood appeared in a photograph of the Prime Minister’s newly refurbished Number 11 Downing Street kitchen.
The famous photograph was taken as Samantha Cameron entertained Michelle Obama in Downing Street on the first full day of Barack Obama's state visit to Britain.
Tom Wright, a sales administrator from Rangecookers, based in Seller Street in the city centre, said: “The Camerons’ kitchen has certainly been a major topic of conversation since the Whitehouse released the photograph. The Camerons’ choice of the Brittania range cooker and the Rangecookers Select 90 slab hood suggests they have a passion for cooking and a keen eye for style and detail, without any compromise on quality. The modern, fresh, open-plan feel to the kitchen and its appliances is common with contemporary Italian kitchens.”
Chris Parker, managing director of Rangecookers, added: “We were thrilled to see a range cooker and one of our cooker hoods featured in the Camerons’ kitchen. Samantha Cameron clearly has great taste in kitchen appliances. The Select 90 slab hood offers outstanding value at just £325 and it delivers a great performance.”
Chris Parker, director of Rangecookers Appliances says: "We are always delighted to see the results when anybody uses our in-house Rangecookers Appliances equipment in their kitchen, but it is particularly special to see a brand we have worked on so hard given the kind of global publicity this photograph has achieved. The whole team, from designers to customer service, was really chuffed to see a product like our Select 100 hood there in the background, and the Camerons clearly have excellent taste!
"As national online range cooker specialists we process an awful lot of orders, but do spot the occasional high-profile customer from time to time. It may a recognisable name, like Keith Chegwin, Stephen Gately or Joe Calzaghe, or it may be a member of a TV production team like Emmerdale or This Morning, a harder-to-spot football pundit like Lee Dixon or even the Crown Estate. It is best to try and be discreet about purchases like the this, but it seemed a fair opportunity for us to gain a little unexpected exposure."
