Rangemaster donates new range cooker to Warwick charity

Leamington Spa-based manufacturer Rangemaster has donated a new range cooker to the Lord Leycester Hospital in Warwick. The gesture comes over 165 years after Rangemaster first supplied the 450-year-old Grade-I Listed site with the iconic Kitchener stove, invented by William Flavel, in 1858.

The Lord Leycester is an independent charity that supports ex-servicemen, with the Hospital funded by visitor income. The ex-servicemen, Brethren and their wives help with the charity by acting as guides in return for accommodation. Steeped in centuries of history with awe-inspiring architecture and charming gardens, the Lord Leycester remains a symbol of timeless heritage and a landmark in the heart of Warwick.

The official range cooker handover ceremony took place at the Lord Leycester on 12th July 2023. Iskender Diker, commercial director at Middleby Residential (Rangemaster) presented the Brethren with the Professional Deluxe 110cm induction range cooker and took part in the ceremonious blacking of the original stove. The new range cooker will take centre stage in the attraction's new café, set to reopen its doors to the public in August.

Iskender Diker said: “Rangemaster is deeply honoured to contribute to the legacy of the Lord Leycester, a cherished Warwick treasure. As we supply the new Professional Deluxe, we also celebrate our longstanding heritage and the enduring craftsmanship that has defined our brand for over a century. We hope this modern range cooker will continue to foster warmth, community and delicious culinary experiences for generations to come.”
