Alan , Fareham Family cook

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Having to replace a 55cm cooker our choice was limited. We opted for this one as it had a glass lid. The cooker is very basic but excellent performance. No time, no display, no programs. Good size oven with a excellent seperate grill. Has nice safety features and auto gas shut off if the flame is extinguished. Ideal if you have a inquizitive 2 year old.
Bad points:
No real bad points. The detachable grill handle is a bit tricky to attach to the grill pan when its under the grill. Not a problem but it good be better designed.

Good points:
the style and performance of this cooker is excellent.
Bad points:
grill handle can be a lttle fiddly, although it is quick to do. i think a folding sideways permanently connected handle would have been a better design

Rosemary, Chester-le-Street Desire best results.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It has all the things I was looking for. The safety of the hob. The main oven cooks evenly and well, the grill is much more better in the distribution of the burners. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.
Bad points:
I have found none.

Ron,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The grill was a lot better than we led to believe. We can toast 4 slices of bread at the same time very quickly.
It is the best grill we have experienced. Distance from heat is adjusted by moving the shelf, like an oven shelf inside the grill area. This is no problem with oven gloves if the grill is in use.
We are still getting used to the oven, but can't see any problems.
The top gas jets are very efficient. Perhaps we have put up with an old cooker too long before buying this.
Bad points:
Moving the grill pan requires great dexterity. The instructions say that the handle has to be removed when the grill is under the gas jets. This requires gripping the handle and with the same hand holding a trigger back to allow the handle to be released. By the time you have struggled to take the handle off, the grill can be anywhere but where you want it. You poke it back into position. Just imagine the reverse operation of chasing the grill pan around trying to locate the handle back on. The trigger mechanism is supposed to make it safe so it does not fall off when you are moving the pan in the kitchen. I struggle with it and I am a do it yourself practical type of person. It would be far safer to have an handle without this mechanism so you could easily grab the grill pan and just be carefull when swinging it around the kitchen.
I would not let this put you off buying this oven. We use oven gloves to move the shelf out during cooking and afterwards, and not the handle. Perhaps we have not had time to practice our technique yet
