Foam Sealing Strip
Just as the door of your oven needs a door seal, each of your cooker's hobs needs a seal of its own to function properly. If the seal around one of your hobs has started to come loose or wear away, you'll need to replace it to ensure the continued smooth running of your appliance; fortunately, this task is relatively simple with the help of Cooker Spare Parts!

We sell a high-quality foam sealing strip that's compatible with the vast majority of appliances, allowing you to seal up your hobs again in no time at all. The hob sealing strip is supplied in lengths of 2.5 metres, and at time of writing, each one costs just £3.98 (please note that prices are subject to change). That's great value, especially if you were expecting to have to pay for a repairman to sort out your hob!

If foam sealing strip isn't what your appliance needs, don't despair - we sell a variety of other hob seals, including:
Autumn has arrived! The autumnal equinox occurred in the northern hemisphere earlier this week (Wednesday, to be precise), which means that we're now officially allowed to get our cosiest jumpers out of the cupboard and adding cinnamon to everything. Oh, and drinking pumpkin spice lattes, if you're into that sort of thing.

Now we're a gluttonous lot here at Cooker Spare Parts, so it should come as no surprise that one of our favourite things about autumn is the food. With the temperature dropping and the days getting noticeably shorter, we felt that now would be a good time to dust off some of our favourite autumn recipes and share them with all of you. Here are some of our all-time favourite autumn foods to keep you warm 'til spring arrives!

Roast Parsnip Soup
If you're finding the autumn air a little too brisk, there's nothing to warm the cockles like a nice hot bowl of soup (preferably served with a big crust of bread). Roast parsnip is a classic choice - click here for the recipe - but don't worry if you're not a parsnip fan because there are plenty of other classic soup flavours to choose from!

Coq au Vin
This French dish has all the components of a good winter (or indeed autumn) warmer: meat, mushrooms, red wine and plenty of sauce to mop up with your bread when you've finished! Find the recipe here, and try not to drink all the wine before it's finished cooking.

Apple & Blackberry Crumble
And for afters...well, what could it be besides this classic autumn dessert? Bonus point if you pick the blackberries yourself, of course. Cooking instructions can be found here, although we have spotted one glaring error in Raymond Blanc's recipe: he recommends serving the crumble with "vanilla ice cream", which is sheer blasphemy. What he presumably MEANT to say was "serve with lashings of custard - I mean, what are we, American?"

Hobs are an indispensable element of the modern kitchen. You probably use your cooker's hobs just as often - if not more so - than your oven, and there are loads of meals that can be cooked using the hobs alone (click here for a few examples).

With this in mind, it's easy to see how a broken hob could spell dinnertime disaster for the budding chef. Fortunately, a broken hob (or even two, three or four broken hobs) doesn't have to mean replacing your cooker; like so many other cooker issues, it's cheaper and often easier to fix your malfunctioning hob than to chuck out your appliance and stump up the cash for a brand new one.

To fix your hob, you'll most likely need a new part or two to replace the ones that have let you down. And that, naturally, is where we come in - we sell a huge variety of cooker hob spares here at Cooker Spare Parts, and we're confident that, no matter what kind of difficulty your hobs are experiencing, we have exactly what's needed to set things right.

Here are some examples of what we have to offer customers whose hobs have gone haywire:

Hob Rings & Hot Plates
If it's the element that's stopped working in your hob, we have a huge selection of spare hob rings and hot plates that will heat things up again in no time. We also sell a variety of elements for ceramic hobs.

Do you cook with gas? Don't worry - we've got loads of spare parts for gas hobs too, including burner caps, shut-off valves, hinges, springs, and more!

You can't turn on a hob without a control knob; if your cooker's knobs have gone missing or become unusable in any way, our huge range of replacement knobs will soon put you back in control.

Here at Cooker Spare Parts, we certainly love cupcakes and after asking everyone here in the office what their favourite cupcakes were, we decided to pick our top three favourite cupcake recipes and share them with you wonderful people! There are some tasty treats below, so we apologise if your stomach is getting the afternoon grumbles!

Tiramisu Cupcakes

Coffee and cake go perfectly together but they are normally separated and come in different forms. Well with these mouth-watering tiramisu cupcakes you can combine both of these things to form a little piece of cupcake heaven! We only hope that these taste as good as they sound and look, because they may possibly be the best cupcakes we will ever try! A delicious combination of rich coffee flavours and a creamy mascarpone topping, these cupcakes are sure to leave you wanting another one! See the full recipe by clicking here.

Oreo Cupcake Recipe

Another hit in the Cooker Spare Parts office were oreos, so we did some research and found these little beauties! Oreo Cupcakes sound good enough on their own, but when they are topped with a whole oreo cookie and oreo buttercream, they are made that little bit more delicious! There is a chocolate base to these cupcakes as well, so if you aren’t keen on oreos, you could just leave out the oreo buttercream. Take a look at the recipe here.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Another popular choice that we simply couldn’t leave out, red velvet cupcakes are fantastic! The name alone makes them sound irresistible and when you bake yourself a batch of red velvet cupcakes at home, you will find it hard not to eat more than one! The red sponge looks fantastic and the cream cheese frosting on top compliments the sponge perfectly. Bake yourself a batch at home by following the full recipe on the good to know website here.

A broken oven is a real pain in the neck, and unless you already know how to repair a cooker, you may think that the easiest way to deal with a breakdown is to simply throw your appliance away and buy a shiny new one.

However, this is far from the best response. A brand new cooker costs a lot of money, and if the problem is something minor like a burned-out element or a faulty thermostat, it will be far cheaper (not to mention far more eco-friendly) to fix your current unit instead of tossing it in the landfill.

Now, we appreciate that fixing a cooker sounds pretty difficult if you've never done it before, but don't reach for the Yellow Pages just yet - many domestic oven issues don't even require the expertise of a professional repairman. It may well be that all you need is a replacement part, and if that's the case, the Cooker Spare Parts team are here to help!

Our website makes it easier than ever to find the cooker spares you're looking for. Here's what to do:

  • Select your cooker's manufacturer (e.g. Belling, Stoves) from the drop-down menu on our homepage.
Select an oven manufacturer

  • If you know it, enter your cooker's model number in the 'Model Number' box.
Enter cooker model number

  • Click 'Search Parts'. You will now be presented with a list of parts that are suitable for your cooker; this list can be filtered by part type (e.g. Control Knobs, Motors & Fans) to save you scrolling through the whole thing.
You can also browse our range by manufacturer or part type. Of course, if you know the exact number of the part you're after, you can enter that number on our homepage and we'll take you straight to the item you need!
