Graham Thornhill of Thornhill Range Cookers Ltd fits the first five-oven wood-fired cooker

Quality of design and outstanding British craftsmanship are the makeup of every Thornhill range cooker. This unique five-oven cooker is one of very few A** wood-fired ovens, thanks to its patented Thornhill Turbo Technology, which makes it 85% efficient.

Graham Thornhill, Chartered Engineer, spent 25 years reconditioning and re-manufacturing Aga range cookers. His engineering background enabled him to design a new version of British-style iron range cookers that kept all of the looks and quality associated with top names such as Aga, Rayburn and ESSE, but with highly efficient burners that ensure low running costs and a more environmentally friendly product. He started up ECO Range Cookers and the business has grown from strength to strength.

Recently, Thornhill decided to change the company name to Thornhill Range Cookers Ltd. “I had originally intended for the word ECO to sum up all that was best about my new improved British iron range cookers,” Graham explained. “My range cookers are eco-friendly and economical to run. However, they are not economy versions of a better quality product, so I have decided to change the name of the company in case of any confusion. I am proud of the fact that our range cookers are made in the UK and much of the work is done at our factory here in Canterbury, using highly trained local staff who work alongside me. All of our iron work is cast in Oxford and our parts are enamelled in Birmingham. We do not own or use Chinese or Taiwanese foundries.”

Thornhill has more products in the pipeline, maintaining his commitment to his values of quality British craftsmanship, energy efficiency, and innovation.
