A Christmas Maintenance Checklist for Your Range Cooker


Blake & Bull founder Matthewlearnt from experience one festive season when he was recruited by his parents to find an engineer on Christmas Eve to get the very much loved family 2 oven range cooker working again!

The following year, to be sure not to be scuppered by a mischievous machine, he put together a checklist of small jobs to be undertaken in the lead up to any big family event.

Matthew has popped this on our Christmas Inspiration page, along with many another festive cookery, gift and maintenance tips to ensure that you can cook with confidence on the day.

Katy Boys

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
