At just 50cm wide, this slim Zanussi ZCG563FX is excellent for kitchens where floor space is at a premium. There’s a total of 58 litres of space across the two ovens, which is only slightly smaller than standard full size models. It’s a great size for a home of 2 or 3 people, and with 6 individual shelf positions in the main oven, you’ll be able to adjust the space to suit the amount of food you’re cooking. For big items like a leg of lamb, pop a shelf in slightly lower to give your large roasting tin more space.
Gas ovens like this give you varied temperatures around the space, as the top of the oven tends to get hotter than the bottom. It’s fantastic for more traditional styles of cooking, so if you’re fond of pies, pasties, casseroles and proper roast dinners, it’s a great choice.
Up on the hob there are 4 separate burners, each of which is surrounded by enamel pan supports. The enamel coating makes it really hard for burnt on food and spills to stick, so when it comes to cleaning, all you’ll need is soapy water and a cloth. You won’t have to spend lots of money on expensive cleaning sprays.
There’s a handy glass lid too, which covers the hob when you’re not using it. By covering the burners that might still be hot after just using them, you’ll be protected from accidentally touching them. Very handy if you’ve got little ones in the kitchen with you. It also doubles as a safety cut out device too – if you close the lid while the hob is still lit the gas will cut out automatically.
