What are the sizes of the ovens?
The Cluny sized ovens are 16w x 12h x 18d. The warming cupboard is 13w x 20h x 21d.
The Cluny oven seems small. What will my limitations be?
The Cluny oven is smaller compared to traditional American ovens. The compact oven provides a more efficient use of space, concentrating the heat on the food instead of the empty space. You can fit a roasting pan with a 26 pound turkey inside! Standard-size cookie sheets, casserole dishes, cupcake tins and most dutch ovens will fit inside. The only potential issues you will have are with frozen pizzas and pastry sheets, however, we provide you with pastry sheets that custom fit onto your oven racks.
Are your ovens gas or electric or electric convection?
Your choice! You may make the ovens both gas, both electric, or one gas and one electric. Convection is not an option for the Cluny models.
Can I get a convection oven?
The convection fan will take up 2 inches in the back of the oven, so we do not recommend convection for the Cluny models, as you will be losing precious space.
What are the electrical requirements for the range?
All ranges operate on 208-240 volts (for lower voltage needs, please call). Please refer to our technical pages for further information.

Which colors are considered to be “upgrades”?

What are my trim options?
There are four options: brass, brushed stainless, chrome, and nickel. Brass is considered “standard” and there will be no upgrade charge. The trim upgrade charge will be $500.
What is the lead time on ordering my range?
Lead time for the arrival of your range is dependent on several factors: the size/model of the range you order, upgrading to a premium color finish, and then of course whether or not you choose air vs. ocean freight. As very approximate timelines, it will take about 3 months by air/ or about 5 months by boat from the time you place your order for your range to arrive at your house. *Note: Add 4 weeks if lead time includes August, as the factory is on Holiday during that time.To obtain a more accurate timeline for the specific range you’re interested in, please give us a call at: 1-800-408-2433.

My husband is not one to offer praise lightly - until he experienced the quality of pizza baked in my Cluny 1400 gas oven and the stir fries prepared on the wok burner in my traditional Chinese cast iron wok. In fact, he has stated that the stir fries are restaurant quality due to the high BTU output of the wok burner. This results in a "seared taste" that the Chinese refer to as Wok Hay. On a lesser stove top, this can not be achieved. Our pizzas are of artisanal quality and so quick to cook at temperatures exceeding the capability of most ranges. My Cluny 1400 is French Blue and a real stunner - and she is an absolute dream to create wonderful meals!

More detailed specifications.
A. For the Cluny 1400 model, choose an overhead canopy with the following optimum specifications: 60″ wide (66″ for Cluny 1400 island applications) x 24-27″deep.
B. Blowers should be rated at 900-1300 cfm, with 10″ round ducting, or equivalent. Size should be measured by the style and quantity of cooking, i.e. Asian stir-fry (vaporized grease) requires higher performance blowers than French reduction (steam).
C. Hood can be mounted to wall or ceiling 30″-36″ (from hood base) off cooktop. Check with your hood company for specific requirements.
Please see here for more detailed ventilation guidelines.
Art Culinaire/Lacanche does not distribute Lacanche hoods. For recommended hood dealers, please see the list here.
