Spark Generator

If your gas cooker lost its spark and your gas hobs or your gas oven is not lighting, this could be caused by a number of issues. First you will need to check that you have power and gas running through to your appliance, make sure that your gas supply is switched on. If it is all set up right then it suggests that maybe you have a faulty part in your gas cooker.  
Before your start cleaning or attempting any repairs to your gas cooker please ensure that you have switched the power and gas supply off. 

You can try cleaning the spark generator on your hobs or in your oven, as this can sometimes get blocked with food, or grease build up from your cooking. Click here to view our specialist oven cleaning products.

When a cold wind is howling and the pathways are glittering with frost, what better way to warm yourself up than with a tasty, festive beverage? Whether it's something spicy, sweet or deliciously decadent, there's sure to be a go-to drink to help get you through the winter months! To help you think of some ideas, we've put together a list to spark your kitchen creativity:

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

A rich and creamy hot chocolate is always a winner during the colder months, but this one has an added seasonal twist! Place chunks of your favourite plain chocolate in a pan with some milk, then heat until the mixture is steaming before adding some single or double cream. Pour the mixture into a mug and add some sugar to taste, before dipping in a Christmas candy cane and swirling it around to infuse your chocolate with a sweet, minty flavour! Full details can be found here.

Hot Spiced Wine

Almost everyone will have tried or heard of this iconic drink, so why not try making your very own at home this year? For a classic base, pick a smooth and inoffensive red wine such as a young Merlot; more bold and acidic wines can tamper with the flavour! 
To make, bring a pan of water, orange juice, sugar and spices to the boil then simmer. Once this is done, add your wine and heat until just before boiling (you want to avoid boiling as the alcohol will evaporate). For a non-alcoholic alternative, why not try a good quality apple juice instead? See the full recipe here.

Cinnamon Pumpkin Toddy 

Again, this recipe uses essential winter spices and flavours to create a drink that can be enjoyed both with or without the addition of alcohol! Combine water, canned pumpkin and pure maple syrup in a pan or slow cooker, then heat on low for 3-4 hours, or high for 1 1/2-2 hours. Add in some bourbon and apple schnapps once it's thoroughly cooked, or sub with non-alcoholic alternatives. Add a dash of ground cinnamon or a stick to serve, and for an extra indulgence whip cream, sugar and cinnamon for a tasty topping!  To see the recipe and directions in full, click here.

There you have it! Three drinks to tickle your taste buds and keep you warm this holiday season! For more fun, food inspiration, be sure to check our blog and follow us on Twitter!

Gas thermostats on cookers are designed to help you have complete control over the temperature of your appliance. Unfortunately, as with any part on your cooker, things can go wrong and parts may need replacing.

A question we get asked a lot is why are gas oven thermostats so important? The simple answer is that they allow you to have maximum control over the temperature of your oven. This is to ensure you don’t burn anything and don’t cause any unnecessary damage to other important components on your cooker. The reason they allow you to control the temperature of your oven is thanks to the thermostat phial that it attached to them. This phial is in the oven itself and has a small amount of gas in it. This gas expands and contracts according to the temperature allowing you to adjust the temperature as you wish.

The most common problem with oven thermostats that we see is the thermostat phial not registering the temperature of the cooker correctly, meaning your cooking will be disrupted as the appliance is unable to tell what temperature your cooker is operating at.

Here at Cooker Spare Parts we have a fantastic range of oven thermostats for you to choose from that will have your cooker back to its normal self in no time at all. Take this GTS 1388 for example. It is one of our bestsellers and this oven thermostat has been manufactured for the main oven on your gas cooker. Once fitted, your oven will be as good as new, but more importantly, you will safely be able to control the temperature of your cooker.
