In the ever-evolving world of culinary excellence, Falcon stands as a stalwart — manufacturing premium range cookers in the UK continually, since 1830. With a heritage spanning over 190 years, Falcon has become synonymous with quality, durability, and style.
For this ultimate guide to Falcon range cookers, we asked Falcon’s Robin Werth to share the cookers’ features, contributions to the cooking experience, and why they are an ideal choice for both professional chefs and home cooking enthusiasts.
Falcon takes pride in its long-standing tradition of manufacturing range cookers in the UK, at the original plant in Royal Leamington Spa. The commitment to quality is evident throughout the production process, with each cooker undergoing stringent quality assessments at all stages of production.
“Every Falcon range cooker is continually assessed to strict quality controls throughout the production process and comes with a 5-year warranty,” says Werth.
Falcon understands that every kitchen is unique, and as such, they offer a diverse range of traditional and contemporary designs. With 16 colour options, chrome, brass, or nickel fittings, and three fuel types, Falcon provides over 170 design combinations to suit any kitchen aesthetic. The range cookers serve as the focal point of the kitchen, combining functionality with exquisite design elements.
Falcon range cookers are designed to elevate the overall cooking experience for home chefs. The multi-function ovens boast excellent temperature stability and cooking performance, while the powerful gas or induction cooktops offer flexibility and efficiency. Whether you're a professional chef or a passionate home cook, Falcon range cookers provide the ideal blend of build quality, design, flair, and high performance.
Embracing modern culinary standards, Falcon has incorporated advanced features such as induction cooktops and steam ovens. The induction cooktops are not only powerful and quick but also easy to use and maintain.
“Induction cooktops are exceptionally easy to keep clean, and are supremely responsive: bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil within a couple of minutes or delicately temper chocolate or slow cook for hours,” shares Werth. “An induction cooktop is rapidly being considered as the must-have modern cooking equipment.”
Each cooker accommodates a variety of cooking styles, from baking and roasting to grilling and beyond. The freestanding range cookers offer more than just a statement centrepiece—they provide larger oven capacities, multifunctional ovens, high-powered grills, and a choice of gas or induction hobs. This versatility allows users to explore and experiment with different cooking techniques, making Falcon range cookers a comprehensive solution for diverse culinary needs.
With a wide range of designs, widths (90cm, 100cm, and 110cm), and fuel options, selecting the right Falcon range cooker is a matter of personal preference and kitchen needs. Falcon offers large oven capacities across the range, ensuring that cooking any type of dish is not only possible but a delightful experience.
“Whilst some still think of a range cooker as an old-fashioned solution, the cooking technology that Falcon builds into its cookers is right up to date,” says Werth. “Falcon has developed induction and steam oven capabilities, as well as a host of features that makes cooking a delight, such as multifunction ovens with up to 11 different cooking functions, bread-proving drawers, and multiple hob options and accessories such as the Teppanyaki grill plate.”
Falcon remains at the forefront of the market by continuously seeking improvements in specifications, production, and design. The growth of induction cooktops has led to new models incorporating this feature, while upcoming launches, such as the Classic FX90, demonstrate Falcon's commitment to providing highly desired and innovative products.
In response to the growing concern for sustainability and energy efficiency, Falcon also prioritises these considerations in the design and manufacturing of their range cookers. With a focus on high-quality materials and energy-efficient technologies, Falcon ensures their products align with the values of today's environmentally conscious consumers.

While many users appreciate Falcon range cookers for their aesthetics and cooking performance, some lesser-known features greatly benefit users in their daily cooking routines. Falcon cookers are built to last, with a strong ergonomic frame, easy glide wheels, and height adjustability. The heavy-weight frame, unique to Falcon, contributes to the cookers' durability, as they weigh approximately 30% more than other brands on the market.
“Falcon cookers are 70% handmade and 100% hand assembled in the UK,” says Werth. “A quality inspection is performed on all Falcon cookers and each one is thoroughly checked and tested before it leaves the factory.”
They’re delivered in award-winning packaging, and are 99% recyclable. Representing a harmonious blend of heritage, innovation, and quality, Falcon cookers are a favourite of both professional chefs and home cooking enthusiasts.
Falcon continues to set the standard for premium range cookers with a commitment to versatility, sustainability, and continuous improvement, their cookers not only enhance the cooking experience but also stand as a testament to the enduring legacy of craftsmanship and culinary excellence.
