April 24, 2012, 9:40 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Cooking programmes have become one of the staples of daytime and primetime television in recent years. Shows such as MasterChef create dishes that many of us would love to reproduce, but probably never will, while celebrity chefs such as Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Rick Stein and the Hairy Bikers use their programmes to cook food that viewers can at least attempt to knock up at home.
Having the right equipment however is vital, and 0800 Repair, the UK's leading appliance repair specialist, has reminded anyone planning to get their teeth into cooking gourmet meals at home, of the importance of having kitchen equipment that is up to scratch.
Having a fridge that doesn't chill food properly, or an oven with a faulty thermostat, can stop a chef in their tracks and ruin what could potentially have been a great meal.
Paul Feek, Managing Director of 0800 REPAIR, said: "There's nothing better than delicious, healthy meals cooked at home, but in order to get a finished article that you can be proud of, you need to have the right equipment to hand.
"A faulty oven, fridge, freezer or hotplate can turn simple tasks into marathon efforts and that's not what you want when you're trying to find your feet in the kitchen. Even if appliances are still working, if they're not performing properly then you're likely to have problems. 0800 Repair carries out cooker repairs and fridge repairs in homes up and down the country every day, and we regularly get feedback from customers saying how much of a difference it makes to have an appliance that works properly."
Chester-le-Street-based 0800 Repair is one of the largest professional appliance repair companies in the UK, with fully-qualified engineers based all over Britain. All the work they carry out is backed by a no quibble guarantee and so homeowners can book a repair service with complete confidence.
Paul Feek added: "We'd urge anyone who enjoys their cooking but has to deal with a faulty appliance to get in touch with a member of the team at 0800 Repair and find out how reasonable it really is to have a fast and efficient oven repair carried out."
