Glenyse, Barnsley Family cook

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Attractive appearance and -well insulated.
Bad points:
It is not possible to clean between the glass panels on the main oven.
Both ovens are much smaller inside than my old 50 cm parkinson cowan gas cooker therefore many oven trays will not fit.
No handle supplied for the grill pan which seems a very petty way to cut costs.

Martin, Edinburgh Bought for elderly parent

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Neat, smart. Good for elderly parent. Small upper oven is ideal for small meals although it takes about 15 mins to reach temperature. Has larger numbers on dials and dials click from one number to the next - both things are helpful when sight is poor. More distinct markings for rings on ceramic top would have been good but the existing ones are perfectly OK for most people. Overall, very happy with cooker.
Bad points:
Wish cooker manufacturers would provide heat-proof cover to place over hot rings after use until they cool down as rings can still be hot after red light goes out.

Chris , Liverpool Family cook

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
It is only 50cm wide, so it fitted the gap from my old one.
Bad points:
Grill is useless. Not even a slice of bread fits under it on the higher level, and the lower level is wastefully far away. Keeps switching itself off so timing impossible. No handle on grill pan. Ridiculous suggestion from Zanussi that grilling be done with the door shut!
Using the upper oven for baking/roasting almost impossible as even a normal small casserole won't fit in unless I reverse the lid.
The timer alarm is so quiet it can't be heard over the oven fan. Zanussi's reply to this was the mind-blowing 'It can't be fixed, therefore there's nothing wrong with it'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fan oven works o.k., but internal space not well designed and you can get very little in. My old cooker allowed three shelves to be used if you arranged things carefully. This just hasn't been thought through.

Maureen , Havant Family cook

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Ceramic hobs good. Oven works well.
Bad points:
No handle for grill pan, so it is difficult to remove dishes and plates without risking burns. Dishes slide back into oven from lowered door.
Do designers actually try using the equipment they work on?
Food in the main oven browns more quickly at the back.
The oven light failed after 1 month.
The main oven door has to be slammed to be closed.
