Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Looks good, nice big grill pan, oven has good capacity, glass panels in oven door are easy to clean, burners are good & give variety of heat.
Bad points:
Grill is slow compared to my old cooker, detachable handle is irritating though it does mean I get a bigger grill pan. Black hob shows every splash, whole cooker is easy to clean but I have to polish it! Do I want to spend time polishing a cooker? No. But it does look good when I can be bothered.

Confirmed purchaser middle aged woman

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good price for a standard basic cooker. Sensible position of rings with a simmer, wide pan and two standard size jets. Good capacity oven with light and many shelf levels. A good even heat in the oven. Even heating across the grill. A venting system at the back of the stove which allows it to 'sit back' in spite of the protrusion of the gas pipe from the wall.
Bad points:
Having the hold the switches in for a little until the oven lights (I sometimes forget and assume it is on when it isnt).
The noise of the fan which operates continually when the grill is open (even if it is not on) and intermitently when the oven is in use. A quieter fan, or different cooling system would havebeen better.
The slightly unusual grid for resting the pans on makes an attractive design, but is hazardous for any old pans which have slightly rounded bottoms.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, straight forward controls. I like the fan for cooling control knobs. Electric ignition is convenient. Have had no problems at all.
Bad points:
Fixing handle onto grill pan took some fathoming out but gets easier with use.
