"Poor especially for such a high price tag"
Cons: poor quality, Expensive, as noisy as a cheap cooker
"Where to start !!
Awful to clean - too many nooks and crannies. You can't clean round the knobs. Crumbs and grease stay in the crevices even with a very careful cloth and sharp knife. Look at it carefully if you are a very busy mum.
Build quality. I used a typical grease buster spray to clean the inside of the oven door which dribbled down the front and stripped the paint off. Very expensive mistake.
There are screws to hold the VERY heavy cast iron pans holders in place which loosened within a couple of weeks and can't be tightened unless you call an engineer. 1 year warranty - called them but no different now. They will all unscrew and end up in the bottom of the cooker - one by one.
The decorative handle to the top. My son banged into it and it's now loose. Another call to any engineer & call out fee to fix. You can't tighten a simple screw without taking the whole top off - needs a gas engineer AND electrician to do so.
More on the decorative handle. I'm 5'5". You can't see the knobs as they are obscured by the rail/handle, let alone see which one is on or off or what temperature they are set at, unless you bow down and put your head to their height.
The aluminium jets are black - can't be cleaned no matter how hard you try - especially if you follow their cleaning instructions. The stainless is cheap and has discoloured underneath.
The wok burner jets are just the same as the large jet. Just not strong enough to be called wok burners.
The fixed tray in the 2nd oven. What is the point?? You can't use most of the rest of the oven as the metalwork shelves will only go in certain places - not designed with the pullout tray in mind.
The big problem that caused us NO END of problems with the kitchen fitted... the doors don't open if you have kitchen units close. We had to have separate end panels set back to allow for doors to open. Go and find one in a kitchen shop and open the doors. They push against the units as the design is so poor. 5mm gap, as stated, just isn't good enough.
The grill. Useless. It's completely fixed and only good for toast which we all have toasters. Typical supermarket sausages burn so don't even think about fat sausages.
Looks great thou but very expensive, all frills but no knickers"
