Jean, Neston, South Wirrql Family cook

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
My previous stoves cooker had double glass windows on both ovens. If food dropped between the glass plates, which happened often, I was constantly having to clean them. The new design has resolved that. I also like the black metal top which covers the hob.
My previous stoves cooker had a glass one - difficult to keep clean.
Bad points:
I'm still getting used to having to hold the nobs in until the gas remains lit. Still not sure about the black hob. Haven't had enough time yet to see whether it is easier to clean than a white one.

Roger, Banstead Family cook

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Looks good. Programmer is easy to use. Well insulated. Both ovens work well and cook evenly.
Bad points:
No grill pan handle is a cheap ommision. Finding one that fits isnt easy. Many who have bought the Stove handle say it doesnt fit.

The bars on the grill pan mesh are spaced too far apart (10mm) so small items can fall through. Turning an item over like a small tomato will send it through the mesh. I bought an entirely new pan of another make with a handle and tighter mesh.

A gas grill would have been far more controllable than a three setting electric one. The first two tend to be too hot and the last one not hot enough. You have to keep varying the height of the pan rather than alter the heat.

As soon as you turn on the grill a fan starts up to keep the control knobs cool (see the Stove manual). If something should start to burn the fan blows all the smoke into the room and in fact makes any flames worse by supplying more oxygen. Also standing in front of the cooker when using the grill means you have hot air (and any smoke) being continually blown up your front and into your face. Lastly the fan keeps going for another 7 minutes (I timed it) after the grill is turned off and it's fairly noisy.

The hob burners are wrongly placed in my view and wrongly sized. There are three sizes. The two at the back are the same size and should be at the front. Of the two at the front one is too small and the other far too big. The big one is for a Wok. Fine if you use a Wok constantly. Personally I might use one once a year.

The control knobs are plasticky and dont feel positive in use. There are nine gradation marks on the gas knobs but only the the last four begin to alter the flow of gas making precise temperature control a matter of moving it millimetres back and forth to get it just right.

The hob pan supports are not smooth enamel. Baked on food deposits are harder to remove because of their rough finish.

I would not buy this cooker again.

Good points:
Very solid, classy looking cooker.
Bad points:
Make sure your electricity cabling has sufficiently high ampage- we have had to have rewiring done to bring ours up to 32 amps.

Jane, Warwick Family cook

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I am very happy with this cooker, it is the best one I have ever had. I have no criticisms whatsoever I know other's have not been happy with the lack of grill handle and another comment was about lack of temperature control. I have not found this at all and I don't find not having a grill handle a problem either, this way you get a larger grill pan and just use your oven glove. I was not keen on having two ovens but couldn't find a single oven cooker of the right dimensions etc. I was wrong the two ovens are really useful, this is a great cooker for the price.

Manufacturer's Description

Pressed for space but want a range cooker to complete the look of your kitchen? The Stoves Richmond 550DFW is a mini dual fuel range cooker that should slot into even the tightest of kitchen spaces, and with a range of vibrant colours to choose from it will easily become the kitchen centrepiece.

The top features a fantastically retro cast lid with chrome handle, concealing the 4-zone gas hob and wok burner when the cooker isn’t in use. There’s electric fan in the main oven, and an electric grill with conventional electric oven cooking in the top compartment.

There are twin side lights for optimum illumination inside, and the interiors are coated with Pristine enamel, which is 3 times easier than standard enamel to wipe clean. The LED clock/programmer also makes it easy to set timers and avoid overcooking.

For added safety, this oven will cut off the gas supply if the flame goes out.
