About us

Lofra Cookers work in partnership with National Range Cookers


This dedicated Lofra Cooker website was born out of a partnership with the famous Italian cooker manufacturer and National Range Cookers. 

National Range Cookers are the UK’s leading range cooker company with the largest dedicated range cooker showroom in the country. The showroom is based in Wolverhampton and customers are welcome to come and see the vast stocks of range cookers we have available. National Range cookers is part of the Carver Limited group of companies. Carver (Wolverhampton) Limited was established in 1896. 

Lofra Cookers was founded in 1956 in near Padua, Italy by the Lovato Brothers who, in the post war period began their activity producing cauldrons with materials coming from the remnants of world war 2.

Through the years they added the design and manufacture of camping stoves, heating stoves and finally to stainless steel gas cookers for domestic use.

Today, Lofra is seen as a major manufacturer of high quality kitchen range cookers and appliances and we are proud to be the main distributor and retailer of their range in the UK.
