Wendy, Birmingham

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Nice looking cooker, clear instructions, pretty good value for money.
Bad points:
2 slices of toast took over 15 minutes to do, the grill seems to have no power behind it.

Oven is smaller than our last cooker ( which was also a 50cm).
Also, we were told the first time we used it, to put it on full with the extractor fan on and windows open, as for about half an hour there would be a strong smell from whatever it is they spray the linings with. Once this had burned off, it would be fine. The oven alone has now been on ( not for cooking) for well over 10 hours and the smell has not gone away. Cannon suggested an engineer came out when I rang for advice, which he did. He said it was normal and to put a casserole in the oven, go out and leave it on all day ( should send him the gas bill). We did this but still have the smell and also a bill for almost £50 because he said there was no fault.
We are now thinking of getting rid an buying a second hand cooker from somewhere.

Margaret, Chorley

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is a well designed cooker which is easy to use. The removable handle on the grill was different but I so I soon got used to using it. It is a no nonsense cooker which I would recommend to anyone who wanted value for money.
Bad points:
My only criticism concerns the grill. I had a Cannon cooker before and the grill on that was very fast and efficient. The grill on this is a lot slower, even on high levels, and it can be a little difficult to light. There is a definate knack to doing it but once mastered it isn't a problem. I also don't like the way you have to hold the ignition in until a certain temperature is reached.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
reasonable value for money
Bad points:
difficult to clean and to maintain the shine ( i bought a black version) also the oven door swings closed as you are trying to remove items; could result in a nasty burn to an exposed arm.
