Margaret, Barnsley Fair and honest feedback

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Compact and neat loooking
Bad points:
Dials are not marked so you can't see whether the rings or on or off and have been left on by mistake. The knobs turn anti clockwise which is frustrating. Oven door has gap at top and is not sealed so all steam food etc goes down and you have to unscrew the glass to clean. The fan oven does not seem hot enough to say it's a fan oven it cooks unevenly. It does not explain how to get the grill to work independent from the top oven. I've had two Belling cookers and loved them but this is a huge disapointment

Good points:
It has a fan oven
Bad points:
The clock/timer is not easy to set up. I also like to have lights to show a system is on, which this only has on the Ovens.

Botanics, Croydon

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Available at good price for double oven as end of line.
Bizarrely we quite like it, despite all the flaws.
Bad points:
DESIGN:
Unnecessarily fiddly to install with ridiculously small and lightweight wiring terminals.
No height adjustment, just front to back levelling, so only about 89cm high. Fine if your worktops are industry standard height exactly, otherwise tough luck. Other cookers can be raised 30mm higher.
No space at back of cooker to allow for pipes etc meaning might not push flush to wall. Other cookers have all free space under the rear vent.
If you power off the oven (as is sensible, especially with toddlers around) you lose the clock setting and so have to press two buttons before fan over can work.
Clock and timer setting needlessly fiddly.

PERFORMANCE:
Poor energy ratings.
Fan oven has very poor thermostat. Switches oven off and on several times before gets to temperature.
Both ovens only tend to get to about ten degrees below set temperature, sometimes twenty.
Ovens slow to warm up.
