Lacanche

Lacanche company logo

Lacanche is a very old brand hailing from France that specialises completely on range cookers and accompanying range cooker hoods, the only deviation from that focus if you can call it that, is the production of a salamader grill which, if you don't know what that is, you probably shouldn't be looking at it. Professional chefs however, will and many adore their Lacanche cooking appliances.

Much of the range of Lacanche products is available in almost bespoke configurations and colours, Lacanche is truly a unique brand in many respects.

Lacanche is distributed in the UK by Fourneaux de France (FDF) based on Poole, Dorset who also appear to distribute the E Caumartin, Westahl and Alpes Inox brands of range cookers as well.

The range cooker and hoods look to be of exceptional quality but with low volumes and no feedback from the repairers on the brand there is not enough information to form any really solid opinion on the durability or repairabiliy of the appliances. That said, it has long been recognised inthe industry that Lacanche is one of the best range cookers that money can buy and we can see no reason whatsoever to doubt that opinion.

At this level of the market there are few options as an alternative, many being supplied by FDF.

If you are looking to buy a new range cooker which is what is prety much all Lacanche do then you should probably read these articles as well:

  Lacanche Service

Little is known about service arrangements for the Lacanche brand other than it would appear to be covered in the same manner as the other brands distributed by FDF.

  Lacanche Spare Parts

No known supplies other than from FDF.

Like Britannia and others in this arena spare parts supplies seem to be extremely limited, if even available which severely limits repair options outside of the warranty period and hampers self repair with limited spare parts supply outlets.

We do not like to see this with any brand due to the limiting of repairs and an effective monopoly on spare parts which stifles competition in the area often leaving customers to pay much more for spare parts and service than would ordinarily be necessary.

Service
I have just tried it arrange a service call because the electric grills are tripping out our electrical circuit, apparently only Forneau de France can carry out the work. THREE WEEKS before any one can even look at it, and I have had to supply credit card details before they will book the service. I thought I was buying a premium brand.

lacanche - "Nice to look at but not well made and full of poor quality unreliable parts.The distributors have you over a barrel when it comes to ridiculously over priced parts"I couldn't agree more. The electrical panels are very poor quality and burn through with the non heat resistant bad connectors. The oven is not too difficult to work on yourself - so long as the power is off. I have replaced elements, fans and thermostats, the latter dreadfully over priced at about £100 each from Lacanche suppliers and even then they don't give reliable control. Only just discovered this site, so next time will see if they have something compatible. Can't get rid of the thing because my wife loves it, despite it's numerous problems!

I have owned a Cluny range all gas model for 15 years. Would never buy an other. They are a bit like French cars. Nice to look at but not well made and full of poor quality unreliable parts.The distributors have you over a barrel when it comes to ridiculously over priced parts.
