Rayburn 699K - Heatranger Central Heating Cooker
Lillie of Selkirk is extremely pleased to announce the launch of a totally new cooker from Rayburn the 699K
The new 699K has been developed to offer improved oven sizes, hotplate
sizes and over all efficiency. The 699K has been designed to exude the
same classic looks that our customers expect in a Rayburn and this has been
achieved with a variety of modifications to improve the overall look of the cooker
Features and Benefits of Rayburn 699K
The two insulated lids lift up to reveal a truly capacious hotplate - this is the
largest rectangular cast iron hotplate on the market, larger than any offered by
Rayburn 699K's competitors (it is also 40% larger than the Rayburn 699K 400 and
300 Series' hotplate, and 97% larger than the 200 Series' hotplate). The hotplate
can accommodate up to 8 pans at once using our specially designed Rayburn 699K
Cookware. Machine ground and solid, the hotplate is powerful and as the largest hotplate
on the market, gives an exceptionally generous cooking capacity.
The new 699K commands more presence than previous models with
it's larger size. The whole construction is manufactured to a high
specification with the main components being constructed from cast iron.
The durability of the brand is such that many of the early Rayburn 699K cookers
dating from the 1940's and 1950's are still in service today. The exterior is
finished in rich vitreous enamel.
A new colour; Aqua will be available with the new 600 Series - this will
replace Sable as one of the 7 Rayburn 699K colours; Cream, Black, Claret,
Dark Blue, British Racing Green, Aqua.
The 699K has enjoyed subtle, revised styling. The polished handrail
has been recrafted and the doors also feature new, more ergonomic
handles, larger lids to accommodate the large hotplate are also featured.
Two Cast Iron Ovens
Below the hotplate are two deep ovens. The Main Oven above is the
larger oven and uses radiant heat, so with no naked flames or elements in
the oven, full use can be made of the whole cooking space.
The top oven is a huge 47 litres capacity (15.8% larger than the current
Rayburn 699K ovens).
It's cast iron construction gives the perfect roast, sealing in all the juices
and flavour and it is large enough to accommodate a 13Kg (28.1lbs)
turkey. It is indirectly heated by conduction, radiation and convection,
which mean an exceptionally even, all-round heat.
Depending on the setting, this oven is therefore a roasting, baking and
simmering oven and it can be used for cooking different things at the
same time as it's fully vented. The venting ensuring that foods are not
impregnated with the smells or flavours of other foods being cooked in the
At a moderate to hot setting it features four heat zones, from grilling at the
top through roasting and baking in the middle with frying possible in metal
utensils on the floor of the oven.
The floor of the oven is an extra hotplate, which can also be used for
cooking bread and pizzas. At an idling setting the Main Oven can be used
for slow and off-peak cooking, with the ability to cook at low temperatures,
producing mouth-watering casseroles, soups and curries.
The Main Oven is largely self-cleaning as at a high setting splashes and
deposits simply carbonise to dust - an occasional brushing out when the
oven is cool is all that is required.
The Lower Oven is also of cast iron construction and operates at half the
temperature of the Main Oven above. With the Main Oven at a moderate
to hot setting, this oven is perfect for slow cooking casseroles and
steaming vegetables, rice and puddings.
The Lower oven boasts a 34 litre oven (26.8% larger than the current
Rayburn 699K ovens).
Up to six Rayburn pans can be stacked at the same time in the Lower
Oven (versus 4 pans in the 400 Series) and using the ovens in conjunction
means that foods requiring different temperatures can be cooked at the
The Lower Oven is also useful for warming plates and serving dishes and
for keeping cooked food hot. Using this oven for gentle slow cooking and
keeping food hot greatly simplifies even the most ambitious menu, and
leaves the customer to really enjoy their dinner parties and entertaining.
Timer For Intermittent Use (Cooking)
The conveniently situated control panel door opens to provide access to a
cooking programmer with a digital display. The single control regulates
the powerful rapid response cooker burner to provide the fastest heat up
times from cold. The cooker can therefore be regulated manually as
desired, or set to come on automatically in the user's absence, ready for
immediate use when they return home.
The timer means there never needs to be any waiting time for pre-heating
as the user is always in total control - with the easy to use timer, they can
ensure that the ovens are programmed to be up to temperature and ready
to use when ever required, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Heating and hot water
The 600 features an ‘Eco' setting for the boiler. This ensures that the
boiler is running at it's optimum setting and this ensures the highest
efficiency possible (at least 85%).
The 600 Series uses two independent fully automatic burners, so hot
water and central heating can be run separately from the cooking
The Rayburn 699K offers the best, most efficient and most
controllable cooking ever from a Rayburn
The thermostatic electronic sensors monitor the oven temperature
automatically ensuring a constant temperature. This allows the Rayburn 699K
owner to concentrate on the cooking, secure in the knowledge that their
Rayburn 699K will maintain the desired cooking temperatures for as long as
The Top Oven will reach cooking temperature (200°C) in less than 30
