If you’re a fan of bacon sandwiches on a Sunday morning, the grill in the BDC5422AW is perfect. It’s variable so you can turn it up or down depending on how crispy you like your bacon, and it comes with a grill pan handle – something you don’t get with many new grills. The door’s counterbalanced as well, so it’ll hold its place wherever you leave it. No trapped fingers here.
If you’re cooking something you need to keep an eye on, like Yorkshire puddings or delicate soufflés, you might find yourself opening the oven door every 5 minutes to check on it. With the BDC5422AW, there’s a light in the oven, so you can see right to the back of the shelf without letting any of the heat out.
Cleaning’s easy because the oven and grill are coated in smooth enamel. This stops dirt and grease from setting in – just wipe it off with a damp cloth. The hob’s made from one piece of glass as well, so there are no cracks for food to settle in. It takes seconds to clean. And if you spill some sauce down the oven door, just slide out the glass and run it under the tap – the glass in both doors is removable.
