Anthony, Tavistock Budding chef

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Ergonomic, straightforward design and operation, amazing value for money. Gas burners very easy and efficient; small oven quick to heat up and useful for everyday meals (eg fish and chips) or small items such as cakes, pies or quiches. Grills are fast and effective, ovens well insulated and power-efficient. Looks good, seems well put together, highly recommended if, like me, you don't go for expensive names, just simple,good quality design and manufacture.
Nothing fancy to go wrong.
Bad points:
Pathetic little ping on timer!

Tufty, Stevenage Family cook

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Stylish design with double oven and useful storage area underneath and overall this represents great value for money when compared to others available in the market place.
Bad points:
The control knobs are a bit flimsy and made of plastic, which is a shame given the high quality of finish to the rest of the cooker. The timer function although useful is again poor quality and really does not measure up to the task.

Lucy, Hereford Family cook

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Looks fairly good. Nothing technical on it to get confused by. Good tray storage area.
Bad points:
I noticed that other reviews complained about the mechanical timer. Personally I think it's far easier to be accurate with the timer dial than with the temperature dials. It's impossible to be precise with the temperature as there's no marker and the numbering is so chunky you have to guess to anything within about 15degrees. My timer on the brand new oven only ever worked intermittently. Would sometimes ding mid-timing and then not at all at the end. Had it replaced and still doing the same thing which is incredibly annoying. I don't find that food cooks evenly (ie front to back and side to side seem to be different temperatures). Even using the fan oven I'm constantly having to swap trays between shelves as it doesn't distribute the heat well enough. Most annoying though is that the bulbs blew immediately. I followed the instructions for first use ie turning it up to max temp for set time to burn off any residue and with my next use one oven's bulb had blown, and the second use of the other oven that bulb blew too! Oh, and these don't come under the warranty so I'm told I have to buy new ones!! Basically I wouldn't recommend this oven. Might be cheaper than other similar spec models but they're probably more expensive because thay actually work properly! Personally I'd prefer the oven that works - even if a seemingly lower spec.

Rick , Knutsford, Cheshire Family cook

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Absolute bargain. This is a very smart, easy to use range cooker for the price of an average single oven. The twin ovens are a good size and with five burners you could cater a dinner party for twenty with ease. Pleasing design with good solid pan supports in cast iron. This could retail at treble the price.
Bad points:
I don't like the low rent plastic knobs but they work fine and are big and chunky so easy to use. Apart from that I have no complaints.
