Pros: Value for money, looks good, heats up quickly
Cons: oven door can close on you, not very clear which hob has been used
"I have to say that I am very pleased with our new oven, it was easy to install and looks great in our new home!
Delivery was easy too we had it delivered the day after we moved in and it was VERY straight forward - the guys delivering were lovely!
It is very easy to use - the knobs are good and chunky and you can select your heat level with ease.
The hob heats faster than the SMEG ceramic hog I had at our old house - it is REALLY quick from cold to boiling water!
There are a couple of things that could be better in my opinion:
1) The lip around the edge of the hob means you can get crumbs/bits stuck - they are difficult to get 'over' the edge.
2) It has no 'markings' on the top of the hob to indicate which 'burner/ring' has been used. To begin with I thought it was just one light to tell you that you had used the hob full stop. It wasn't until after using it for a week and cooking with several pans that I realised it DID in fact have an indicator for each ring! It is a bit unclear and if someone hasn't seen you cook it would be difficult for them to discern which one had been used without doing a 'hand hover'!
3) This one I read about before purchase but assumed that it must be down to installation - it doesn't appear to be!
The Door 'closes' on you with gravity.
It isn't a fast close or a swing but it comes at you!
It should have a stronger hinge.
Sometimes it stays open but most often it begins to close on you.
We have found a way around it with my partner holding the door open for me, from the handle, if I am juggling in the oven or handling a heavy dish. BUT if you have kids or were entertaining and didn't want to leave guests I think this could be a problem.
Overall I am VERY happy with our purchase, it looks fab, cooks fab, well as well as the user can try! A great buy!"
