I purchased this cooker in November 2010 for £299. As I was on quite a tight budget this cooker seemed perfect for the cost and was everything I needed. As I live alone I knew it wouldn't be getting used a great deal.
It fitted fine in the space in my kitchen and looked great. When I came to use the oven I did find that it was rather narrow inside. Looking at it with the door shut had been a bit deceiving I thought. It certainly never looked that way from the outside. The capacity of it is 41 litres. However the tray that came with it fits inside perfectly and as I'm usually only ever cooking for myself this hasn't ever been a problem for me.
I found the controls on the cooker to be easy to use and clear to understand. The grill works fine, seems to cook evenly and I've done toast under it and this has been fine. There's also a safety feature called FSD (Flame Supervision Device). This means that the gas supply will automatically be shut off if the flame goes out.
Both the grill and oven viewing panels are double glazed and are very easy to clean as it the rest of the cooker.
There is a slow cook facility although I've never used this. I do think this is a useful feature though as you could have the dinner ready when returning from work.
Overall this cooker has been perfect for me so far. I don't really think it would be ideal for families who may be cooking large meals due to its small oven.
**New cooker at last!**
Ohhhhhhh, how elated I was when our spankingly new and gorgeous Beko DG5822 arrived! Ok, so I'd been dreaming of bigger and better cookers, but credit crunch n all that, meant this had to do!
As is per usual in our household, 2-3 main household appliances had conked out at the same time. Not having the money to whizz out and buy all 3 appliances new, we actually ended up waiting a good few months before replacing our old temperamental cooker. Fortunately the old one held out up until 3 months before it finally packed in. The ignited flame in the oven just wouldn't stay on, and if it did stay on, it stayed on for about 5 minutes at a time. Try cooking food like that for months! I was flippin glad to see the back of it!!!!
Little Beko joined the kitchen and fitted in a treat. Rather snazzy looking, in silver and black, this free standing gas cooker that's about 90cm high, 50cm wide and 60cm deep matched our black kitchen work top and flooring perfectly. Its fairly small for a cooker but at £330 it was the best out of the bargains around at the time and there was fat chance of stretching to a double oven just yet. One thing I would say before buying this oven is make sure you have ways of it being hooked up to a mains socket. I hadn't checked this out beforehand and it was a pain in the butt with the placing of the cooker being away from the mains, to sort out a connection. You'll need the electric to make use of the ignition button and light for the oven.
There are 4 gas burners on the hob. There is no hob cover which I now wish I had because it looks far tidier in my opinion when you can cover the hob up. There is a separate grill underneath and a single oven below. The oven and grill have see through panels which is a good feature for checking food. There is a light which you do need to put on as it's not easy to see through the panels without it. The oven has 3 removable shelves with the option for them to be at different heights.
We are a family of 5 and although we make do with this sized oven, ideally we would benefit from a double oven, especially when have visitors. If using the hob to cook a meal for all 5 of us, its 4 burners are more than sufficient. With the oven - it's big enough to do a joint of meat and some roast potatoes at the same time on different shelves, but pizzas and chips is always a pain in the butt to cook for all of us. We tend to have to do the children's first, and then our own as it's not big enough to fit 2 large pizzas in and a tray of chips. I have regular visitors from my family in term holidays and cooking for a total of 11 of us has to be done on the hob. It is possible to cook various things in the oven but it can be very time consuming and you need a way to keep food warm as you're going along.
Ideally this oven is for a family of 3 - 4 max, but with 5 you can get by but with some meals as i've already mentioned, you may have to use the oven in stages.
To light the oven you have to press and hold the ignition button in for several seconds whilst pressing in and turning the oven dial (or grill, depending on which you are using). This takes a bit of mastering and used to really annoy me because I'd never get the balance right and the flame would light and thennn........ go out again. Yawn! Safety first though - its that way for a reason and with my 23 month old being extremely mischievous, I'm glad if he did manage to get his hands on the ignite button, it wouldn't light up. Another good feature is if the grill fully closes whilst something is cooking, the gas turns off.
Our cooker is very easy to clean but as with any cooker, if you don't clean it regularly, grime and grease is going to build up and you'll have a job and a half on your hands. The hob surrounds remove easily so it only takes a quick wipe over to clean it, unless something has over flowed on the hob, its dried and you have to scrape it off. I have a tendency to over boil pasta mixes that you mix with milk and butter. It's a bugger to get off if you are a bit lazy and leave it to dry!
No hob cover
Ignition and light buttons are too close together so I'm always pressing the wrong one
That's about it!
hi i live in ireland. my mam purchased a beko gas cooker last year, it had a 1 year warranty, that was ok it was still under warranty when she reported the fault, the grill wont stay lit, they sent a guy out whom my mother thought was not very friendly and it turns out the part he thought was worn out was not worn out at all so he had to leave the cooker the way it was and my mother without a grill again so he could go and order the other part, this has been going on for nearly a month now because the guy never came back since, so then my mother rang up beko service repair and found the person on the other end of the phone very rude, that person said my mother slammed the phone down on them the last day, but she did not, she only passed the phone onto my dad so he could speak to them. now even the oven door is hard to open this was just after happening. in other words if anyone wants a cooker or any product that is reliable and has a great service repair back up with friendly staff, PLEASE DO NOT BUY A BEKO COOKER. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
A few months ago, it became obvious that our gas cooker was not going to last much longer. We got it around thirteen years ago, so it had done pretty well, but it was time for a new one, especially when it became increasingly difficult to get the gas hobs to light at all.
My Mum offered to buy us a new one, but as she is only working part-time now, she could only afford £350 at most and suggested we look at the Currys website, as they also do a home delivery service and take away your old cooker for recycling. We basically bought the best one we could for that budget, which was a Beko DG5822X for £339.94. The Currys website currently shows a price of £379.99 though. (Although the website lists our model as the DG5822X, our cooker has Beko DG5822 Mk II on it and it is part of the Beko DG582 range.)
Before buying our cooker, we had been warned against buying Beko by someone who fitted cookers, but there are only a few brands in this price range, so we just had to risk it. We got our cooker in February, so after using it for four months now, I feel I know enough about it to write a review.
We have only a small kitchen and a fairly small space between fitted cupboards for a cooker to go, so our first requirement was that any cooker would fit in this gap. The Beko DG5822X is 900 x 500 x 600mm (H x W x D) so a good slim size, while still being big enough to have decent space inside the oven and grill.
It is silver and black and made from stainless steel, so looks nice enough. It has four gas burners on the top, with a separate grill underneath and a single oven below that. The grill and oven have see-through panels so you can check your food during the cooking process. (I still usually prefer to open the door to check properly though.)
I use this cooker almost every day and cook for up to six people, so I often have all four hobs going at once and haven't had any problems with them. They ignite well, the gas is strong and consistent and turns off easily. The knobs across the front are clearly marked and easy to use. The only slightly annoying part is that there is a small button to turn the oven light on and this is the same size as the ignition button, so it is quite easy to confuse the two.
As with any appliance, there are advantages and disadvantages to it. It is touted as having 'easy clean enamel' and it is, in fact, quite easy to wipe clean without too much effort. I just gave it a quick wipe with a damp sponge and it got most of the grime off. If I had bothered to use cleaning spray, I'm sure it would have been sparkling, but I didn't have time. (I've got a review to write!)
One of the disadvantages I noticed early on was that it doesn't have a cover for the hob burners. Our old one did, so you could put it down when you weren't using the cooker and it became another usable surface. It also made the kitchen look tidier and if you didn't get chance to clean your hob, you could just cover it and no-one would know. So in future, I will try to buy one with a cover.
Lighting the hob is easy, but it is more complicated to light the grill and the oven, as you have to turn the knob then hold the ignition button for a few seconds. If you take your finger off the button too quickly, the gas will not light and you will have to try again. This can be a bit annoying and I usually need at least two attempts to get it lit properly.
You also need access to a mains power point nearby, as you need electricity to power the light and the ignition. While we have one, it houses our plugs for the kettle and the toaster, so we needed to buy an extension to put the extra plug in. This is useful to know before the cooker arrives.
There are advantages to this cooker though. Gas is much cheaper than electricity for running a cooker. (We are on pre-payment meters and have tried both.) It heats well and cooks efficiently and the temperature settings seem accurate, as my meals usually cook around the same time as is suggested in the recipes I use.
I like the grill's safety feature too. When it is on, the door will only shut so far and if you close it entirely, the gas turns off.
I am reasonably happy with this cooker overall, after four months of using it. The minor issues I have with it are ones I can certainly live with and for a budget cooker, it is good enough. If I had lots of money, I would buy a better one, but if you have a small budget like we do, I am sure there are worse cookers out there than the Beko DG5822X.
I bought this cooker about 7 months ago when I moved into my flat. As I was on a budget I bought the cheapest cooker with the best description. When the cooker was delivered I was pleased that it was small, as my kitchen is relatively small. I chose a gas cooker rather than electric which is better for me, as the heat is instant. The appliance has a top grill and a bottom oven, and both heat up quickly and cook food effectively. There are removable shelves in the oven which can be placed at different heights to meet your cooking needs. I have followed recipes and guided cooking times which have worked in my cooker. I do quite a bit of cooking and cause a lot of mess, which does not look pleasant on a white cooker, so I have to clean it quite frequently. With this, the surfaces of the cooker are smooth and are easy to wipe clean, which is important. The hob peices are removable making it easier to clean. The door on the oven is glass which makes it easier to check on food without opening the doors and loosing heat, this is essential for cakes or yorkshires which may fall if heat is lost. On a negative note, the oven takes a little while to light, which is a safety feature, and you have to hold the gas down for a few seconds as it will cut out. Safety is important, but this can be a bit annoying. Overall the cooker has been quality for money, if you want a basic cooker (which most people do) this will meet your needs. I cook all kinds of meals in both the oven, grill and on the hob, so unless you require a specific cooker, this will be effective for you.
I bought this cooker for £210 from Curry's after my last cooker stopped working two weeks before Christmas 2008.
It is a free standing gas cooker which I have found to work really well. It has a separate grill and oven which is big enough for most things including a Turkey. It has safety mechanisms installed, i.e. to light the oven you have to hold the button in for several seconds or it will just go straight back out again. The grill has the same said safety mechanism, also if the food you are cooking starts to spit a lot it cuts out to avoid a fire. This can be vital although also quite annoying, especially if you're cooking something fatty.
The glass fronts of the grill and enable you to check on the food without having to open the door. These are very easy to wipe clean. There is also an oven light which is great.
The one I have is white which suits a lot of kitchens and it's not too wide if you only have a small kitchen.
