I cleaned two Lacanche Range cookers in the same house last week. Lacanche's are semi professional ranges and are more suited to some one who is very keen on cooking and the owner of these was using them to make chilli chutney which they were putting into jars and selling. Usually Lacanche cookers are quite difficult to clean as they usually have stainless steel plates on the inside of the doors and the roofs of the ovens. To get these clean and sparkling means a lot of effort. Luckily these two Lacanches had enamel inside doors and oven roofs so making them a lot easier to clean and they came up sparkling.
As a bonus the owner showed me his chili pepper bushes, which he had in his conservatory and large greenhouse, ranging from the mildest chillis to the hottest, gave me a quick overview of the different types and how to grow them (apparently they are difficult to propogate – you need a heater – and they grow into small bushes) and then gave me some of his chillis. So I have been adding them to several dishes at home and they have really added a kick to our meals. Next year I'm going to be growing some chillis in my greenhouse alongside my tomatoes 🙂Google+
