Chef Appliances Company Background

Currently a subsidiary of the Electrolux Corporation, Chef Appliances has been in business since 1937 when Scottish immigrant Edgar Ferrier and his sons Sidney and Frederick began making cast iron stoves in a shed in the backyard of their Melbourne home. The Chef name was coined soon after by Edgar's wife Rose Mary. Chef Appliances made its commercial debut with the invention of Australia's first pressed sheet metal stove in 1948. Chef Appliances have always kept pace with the Australian way of life, evolving and leading the way in the market for 50 years.

Chef is now a part of the larger Electrolux, granting them resources and expertise to make their range of appliances even better. However, the additional means at their disposal do not take away from Chef's stand alone achievements, beginning in 1948 with their first pressed metal stove. In 1965 Chef Appliances shipped their first international export to Hong Kong, starting the spread of their now worldwide reputation for quality. Innovation was the catchword in the 1970's when Chef created the first natural gas cooktop burner and pioneered a new enabling system. From having their appliances displayed at Harrods in London to being chosen as the main domestic supplier of appliances for the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Chef Appliances have a history of distinction.

With a goal of making their appliances versatile, efficient and easy to use, Chef continues to expand their reputation for quality. Their 80-litre capacity ovens are sure to be large enough for all your cooking needs. You'll please your family and friends with the ability to cook roasts, casseroles and biscuits with ease and you'll know that the stainless steel or classic white looks will blend seamlessly into your kitchen. Quiet and durable, Chef ovens don't need to be fussed over. With conventional, fan-forced or multifunction models, there's an oven that's perfect for your cooking style. And with a choice of either built in or separate grills, your options for making any dish you can imagine are wide open. Find your new oven today at a greatly discounted, best price guaranteed - only at Appliances Online.

Chef's freestanding cookers are compact on the outside so they can fit in any kitchen (they are designed to fit in the standard 550mm space of the Australian home) but have the same generous 80-litre capacity as their ovens. You'll have no problem cooking up a tasty, healthy meal that will be sure to please your family and guests. Built with quality and durability in mind, Chef enamel cookers come in conventional or fan forced models. Also available in both gas and electric models you'll be able to find the perfect cooker for whatever fuel supply you have in your home.

Since even the best recipes can produce unwanted odours and greasy steam during preparation, Chef's line of rangehoods will be sure to keep your kitchen fresh and clean. With equipped lights, a Chef rangehood will also shed a bit of light on your cooking. The centrifugal fans draw moisture and odours away from your kitchen meaning there's no need for any extra cleaners and the filters are easily removed for cleaning in your dishwasher. Chef rangehoods are available in three varieties: Canopy hoods that feature a slim, modern profile, Retractable hoods that are designed to blend into your cabinetry and Fixed hoods that are installed directly on the wall of your kitchen.

If your current oven is unable to meet your growing demands, why not consider a new one from Appliances Online. Our prices can't be beat and our customer service is second to none. If you have any questions before or after your new appliance purchase, we are here to answer 7 days a week. Our friendly and courteous staff will help you in all your appliance needs.

Review for: Freestanding Upright Chef Gas Oven GBC5486W
2 starThe oven is such an overall disappointment. I am not at all happy with the different style trivet (? the 2 rectangular raised components that the saucepans rest on when using the hob) Although they look good the design is very poor. When heating a coffee pot for instance, they are extremely dangerous as it is tricky to balance the pot over the metal support. Also the additional raised trivet bit over the wok burner is so inconvenient as I can no longer momentarily rest hot trays or other hot items from the oven safely on the hob for fear of them sliding off, this is annoying in the extreme not to mention very dangerous! My previous chef stove had a single trivet over all four burners that was by far easier to use and maintain. I am also disappointed with the 'fan' function on the oven. It definately does speed up proceedings, particularly when I have a full load baking, BUT the heat is still uneven, with definate 'hot spots' along the front and left hand side of the oven. So I still have to constantly be vigilant and move items around while they are baking. And finallly it would be so nice when buying a brand new oven, to have 3 shelves supplied instead of the given two!

5 starI have used my new Stove a few times now & I am very happy with the performance. It heats up very quick & the ceramic cooktop is very easy to keep clean. I would recommend this Upright Oven to others. The price was also the BEST around as I did my homework. Thank You Appliances Online I will be using you again in the future & telling my family & friends.

Review for: Freestanding Chef Gas Oven/Stove CFG504SA
4 starThe only problem is that it cost nearly as much as the stove to have it installed in place of the original ($500) it may be worth it to warn people of this additional cost as you are not allowed to install them yourself.

Review for: 600mm Chef Electric Cooktop EHC647UC
5 starI shopped around a lot, and can say with certainty appliances online is the cheapest. Free delivery and taking away of old appliances was an added bonus. Service and delivery were excellent, driver was very friendly and helpful. I am normally wary of purchasing off the internet, without seeing the product, but would not hesitate in recommending this website. I will be using this website again, and recommending to friends.

Q I have just ordered from you CFG503WALP cooker. What do I need in the way of Bottles, Hoses & attachment accessories please
Question for: Freestanding Chef Gas Oven/Stove CFG503WALP
Asked by John (18/09/2012 1:49:42 PM)

A All the needed attachments required for installation are included with this stove. You do need to have the required LPG gas bottles to connect the stove to. I would advise you to contact a licensed electrician to install the stove and advise you on anything that might be needed for your particular kitchen. If you are located in our own delivery area, you can probably have the stove installed by our own installation company called Handy Crew, for an extra cost of $380. If you would like to organise this please contact us on 1300 000 500 and any member of our sales team will be happy to organise this for you.

Q Can we have this hood in recirculation mode, ie no ducting, instead use carbon filters.
Question for: Chef Retractable Rangehood REHR6W
Asked by Trev (2/07/2012 7:16:55 PM)

A This type of rangehood does require some form of fluing even if it is to be recirculated. What I would suggest doing, firstly, is to take a look at the install instructions: http://www.appliancesonline.com.au/pdf/chef_rangehoods_install.pdf Please see page 6 which has the slide out range hood installation instruction. For recirculating you will require to flue through the cupboards exhausting through a top vent.
