-- When launched in 1985, the original Paul Bocuse RBC127 model – named after the renowned French chef – caused quite a stir due to its symmetrical ‘two cookers joined together’ layout. The enthusiasm for the model continues to the present day, with loyal owners staying faithful to the brand when the time comes to replace their original purchase.
The Rosieres Prodige dispenses with the elaborate arched windows of its forerunner in favour of a cleaner letterbox-style glass aperture bridging both doors, and the decorative finials have been replaced by simple, geometrical design that does much to redefine the Bocuse and appeal to the modern chef. The Prodige has lost none of its forerunner’s legendary cooking power – the coup de feu is still evident on the hotplate, and the pyrolytic main oven still offers a grill and rotisserie and is supported by a conventional second oven. The two storage drawers beneath bear the familiar crescent-shaped recess of the original Bocuse.
The Rosieres Bocuse acquired its name from Paul Bocuse, the iconic French chef who continues to lend his considerable reputation and renown to these influential range cookers. It’s assuring to know that serious cooks still hold the Bocuse in such high esteem, and even better to know that the Prodige will continue to build on this reputation for generations to come.
The Rosieres Bocuse Prodige range cooker will be introduced to Rangecookers.co.uk in July 2012 – until then, view the original Rosieres Bocuse RBC127 online at http://www.rangecookers.co.uk
