Got our oven cleaned today and to say it’s like new is an understatement. How we managed to get it so dirty inside and to how it is now is night and day difference no matter how much I scrubbed I wouldn’t have got it anywhere near that clean. Fantastic job will be happy to use again thank you. More...

The job done by Captain Cooker was top class. Absolutely no mess left, thorough, and the oven was left in ‘good as new’ condition. Definitely recommended.



5 October 2018

Wow!!! My cooker is an old fashioned cooker, given to me second hand and I simply thought that if I couldn’t save it... it had to go. Well, if you could see the cooker now! It’s a completely different cooker! Absolutely immaculate I even posted photos on facebook to recommend him and everytime is amazed at how immaculate it is! HIGHLY recommend! Will 100% be a frequent user of this man now. Also might I add he is the most pleasant character and made absolutely no mess! Spotless work and stunning results - and at a fantastic price. Cheaper than what some big businesses are charging! More...

I'm so grateful to Peter for fitting me into his schedule at the last minute. I'm really impressed that he managed to clean the oven in my new place to an almost new condition, despite what looked like years of built-up grease and grime - and no smelly chemical fumes afterwards. Prompt, courteous and efficient, I will definitely get him back when it needs cleaned again. More...

Peter is a thorough professional. He is friendly, fastidious and fun! My oven is gleaming. He even used a toothbrush and torch to reach the places other oven cleaners couldn't reach. He took the back off and changed a bulb as well. Peter is a very pleasant professional who takes great pride in his work. He was great with our little dog. Nothing was too much trouble and he is very knowledgeable about lots of things. I highly recommend Peter. I will definitely have him back here to clean my double oven.

7 September 2016

Captain Cooker came to my home to clean a 10yr old cooker, with 10yr layered, cooked, grime. I had cleaned it sporadically (once a year half-heartedly with Mr. Muscle) & occasionally cleaned the glass with a pot-scourer.He cleaned everything to do with the cooker thoroughly, including gravy splash guard, tiles behind it, & all hardened grease around it. Shelves, glass & stainless steel parts came up like new.I was left with a 10yr old new cooker.I'll seriously consider contacting him again in 2 yrs & not bothering with Mr. Muscle ever again!!! More...



10 August 2016

Peter (Captain Cooker) is a very professional and friendly chap. He arrived on time, spent several hours meticulously cleaning every part of my oven including the shelves, racks, door etc. When he was finished it was like a brand new oven. Would recommend to anyone wanting a professional and thorough oven clean. More...



9 December 2015

Peter came to my house and worked so hard on cleaning my cooker. It is like new now and I won't feel embarrassed opening the oven on Christmas Day when the family come around. I would recommend him 100%. Well worth the money. I was considering getting a new cooker but Peter's hard work has saved me a fortune. Would use again without hesitation. More...



2 December 2015

I was thinking of buying a new oven especially for Christmas, but Peter cleaned my beloved twenty year old model last week, and brought it back to good-as-new condition. Thankfully that's a few hundred quid saved! Couldn't speak highly enough of Peter: hard working, efficient and a very pleasant chap to have in the house! Will definitely be asking him back again next year! More...



3 October 2015

Peter arrived at the arranged time and spent a few hours cleaning my range from top to toe !! I have had my cooker for 8 years - it works perfectly fine but has got a bit dilapidated - not anymore - it is like new again - definitely far cheaper than buying a new one. Would highly recommend Peter to anyone not only is he excellent at what he does but he is also a very polite gentleman to have in your home. More...



10 September 2015

We have just had Peter over to clean our main oven and it is like brand new. He worked so hard at it and you would think we had gone out and bought a new one. I would highly recommend him.



8 September 2015

Booked Captain Cooker after reading other reviews. Peter arrived punctually on the date agreed. He worked for 2 hours plus cleaning the cooker and hob and extractor fan and brought them shining good as new. Would recommend him without hesitation only problem is I don't want to cook to dirty it again :)) More...



14 August 2015

Peter worked efficiently & clean. Very knowledgeable & removed every part to provide a great oven clean. The end result was oustanding. It was a hard task as the oven was a disaster & thats putting it mildly. Would not hesitate to recommend Peter, he was a pleasure to have in the house. More...



20 May 2015

21 April 2015

I called Captain Cooker after reading reviews on Yell and I wasn't disappointed.Peter arrived on time after sending a friendly reminder of our appointment by text. He worked hard and left my oven clean and sparkling. He even helped me install a new washing machine that arrived while he was cleaning the oven. Now that's service!I would definitely recommend Captain Cooker and will be using him again More...



7 April 2015

I wouldn't have believed that anyone could get my cooker back to a near brand new state but Peter did! I have the cooker a number of years and not cleaned once (to my shame). He also cleaned my hob and extractor fan to perfection. A very nice man and I would thoroughly recommend. More...



26 March 2015

Peter cleaned our single oven, grill pan, hob and extractor fan. He spent about 3 hours doing a really thorough job and everything looks like brand new. I have very young children so was particularly happy that Peter uses only safe non-toxic products with no noxious fumes. Our extractor hood was quite wonky and Peter not only cleaned it but was able to fix the mechanism so it now works better than ever. Highly recommended and well worth the cost for the thoroughness and friendly service. More...



24 March 2015

Really happy with the service and standard from captain cooker. With my appliances only being 6mths old, I was hesitant about using a professional clean. However, not being able to afford the time I decided to contact Peter, and I'm so glad I did. I would never have got them as clean. They look like they did when I removed the packaging!Very happy, definitely recommend and will use again. More...



20 February 2015

My Aga hasn't been as clean since the day I bought it! Peter did a really thorough job and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great service at a fair price.



31 January 2015

While myself and my wife were out, the kids had a grill fire and emptied a powder fire extinguisher into the grill and the oven got a lot of it too!!Peter was here for nearly four hours cleaning and have to say he did a great job. Everything works and has saved us the cost of a new double oven!!cheers Peter!!!! More...

12 November 2014

Had my ovens, hob and extractor fan cleaned after thinking about it for ages. They look as good as new - just sorry I didn't get it done sooner. Peter is very professional and thorough and I like the fact that you can use the appliances immediately as there are no harsh chemicals used. I would recommend this service. More...



24 July 2014

I am absolutely delighted with the results! Both inside and out are spotless.Not only did Peter do a fantastic job, he is a lovely man and I would not hesitate to recommend him in the future.Well worth getting this done! More...



8 July 2014

I didn't know about cooker cleaning services until I was given a gift voucher for an oven clean.(Probably a bad sign). Peter turned up and set to. What a transformation. The oven, hob and extractor, all look like new. Brilliant! I can recommend him. More...



28 May 2014

I discovered Captain Cooker on the net as I was having trouble removing the glass from the oven door to clean it. Peter did a wonderful job on my old cooker, leaving the ovens and glass gleaming. I would recommend Captain Cooker to anyone who is thinking about having their oven valeted. More...



28 May 2014

Discovered Captain Cook on Google as I had problems removing the glass in the oven to clean it properly. Peter did an amazing job on the double oven and I was delighted with the result. The glass is now like new and the ovens are sparkling as well. Many thanks, Peter. More...



14 May 2014

Peter done a wonderful job not just on my oven but washing machine as well both look brand new sparkling clean would not hesitate to use again, certainly would recommend to everyone Elaine - Portadown



19 April 2014

10 year old 120 cm Britannia Range that has seen plenty of hard work was returned to as good as new by Peter. The entire machine is sparkling all Brass polished , steel perfect and ovens are spotless and look brand new. Worth every penny. We will be using again. Excellent service. More...



20 March 2014

Peter visited us last night and did an amazing job on our range and extractor! I don't think they looked that good when they were delivered and unwrapped. I couldn't recommend Peter highly enough and intend on arranging for him to carry out a regular deep clean. More...

Excellent Service. Oven like brand new. Highly recommend.



10 February 2014

I would highly recommend Captain Cooker. Peter is a gentleman to work with. He is reliable, polite, clean and made our oven look like brand new again. Amazing service.



5 December 2013

Not just the oven, Peter did a brilliant job on a badly soiled oven, bringing it back to as new standard in 2 hours. No caustic chemicals, so no smells, and in use straight away. Really friendly chap, and easy to pay. Ivan, Killinchy. More...



31 May 2013

Captain Cooker cleaned my mother in laws oven and she recommended him. He arrived this morning and literally worked away non stop from 10am to 3pm, and left the cooker gleaming clean. He's old skool and doesn't use caustic chemicals on your oven, Just some safe degreaser and elbow grease. If you want your oven cleaned to a high standard for a fair price give Peter a call. More...



8 March 2013

Was looking for someone to clean my ovens and after reading reviews on yell.com, decided to go with Captain Cooker (excellent reviews). Peter (Captain Cooker) arrived promptly and started to work on a 15 year old Rayburn (which was a little worse for wear!) and a gas oven. Its no exaggeration to say they BOTH look like new! The enamel on the rayburn is shining, the mirror finish on the gas oven door is sparkling! Can't stop looking at them :) Nice guy too .. ring Peter, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Captain Cook.. My Hero! :) More...



7 December 2012

I have reluctantly torn myself away from gazing at my lovely sparkly clean oven which Captain Cooker has just cleaned today! ! My oven was so dirty I was ashamed to open it in front of people!! A brilliant service which I would highly recommend! Emma. More...



4 October 2012

We recently moved into a rental property and were horrified to discover that behind a very attractive modern kitchen lay years worth of food detritus and grime in the oven, grill, hob and microwave. The grill and hob were so caked in carbon in particular I thought we'd have to throw the grill pan out/install a new hob unit.Then Peter (aka Captain Cooker) was recommended to us - and WOW! What. A. Transformation! Talk about bringing something back from the dead!! The grill pan is so clean as to be unrecognisable and I can see my face shining happily back at me from inside and outside the oven. And what is not the most pleasant of jobs all undertaken by Peter in a cheerful and highly professional manner. Brilliant :-) More...



16 August 2012

Peter, aka "Captain Cooker" came and cleaned my double oven, hob, and extractor hood a couple of weeks ago. It hadn't been cleaned properly in years, and he did an absolutely fantastic job!! It's spotlessly clean and looks like new, I just wish I had got it done sooner. An absolute gentleman, would recommend him without hesitation- thank you, Peter! More...



26 March 2012

After 2 hours its like i have a brand new ovenEverything is shining and stunningly clean, i dont want to use it to get it dirty again!!!!Such a gentleman, very pleasant.Will use again and recommend to family and friendsThanksNeill More...



12 March 2012

I got Captain Cooker into clean my oven as I had just moved into my house and the previous tenants left it in such a revolting state. Peter left it good as new. Would highly recommend him to anyone.Stephen More...

It's like getting a new oven, but better because it doesn't cost as much as getting a new oven! I booked this guy to come out and do my oven and my Mum's. We had to wait a month because he was so booked up, but he gave us a slot straight away in his busy diary. It takes a good few hours you see, to treat the ovens, because he does it properly - so prepared for him to be in the house for a while. See those Mr. Muscle Oven Cleaner yokes...forget about them - they are pointless. Just get this guy every year or so. I really didn't want to cook food in the oven - it was so pretty! He does hobs too, and removes the entire back of the oven and cleans every single micro-millimetre of space on it, he works really hard too - you can see where your money is going. He will travel to anywhere in Northern Ireland. More...
