“ Brand: DeLonghi / Type: Double Oven / Fuel Type: Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) / Cooking Elements: 5 (Burner) „
Due to the reason of moving house we were looking for a 5 gas burner cooker rather than the standard four as we tend to do a lot of cooking. However being on a tight budget meant that I could only spare 600 pounds. Majority of the range cookers were priced well over my budget and I was limited to a few choices only. This cooker being one of them. I opted to buy this cooker as I was amazed that comet were offering a free cooker hood with the purchase of this cooker. This offer was for a limited time only so I quickly snapped up the bargain.
The cooker has two seperate ovens one average size and one small as the picture depicts. This is very convenient as I can choose which oven to use depending on the size of my dish. There is a grill only in the big section of the oven. Both ovens have lighting, which is useful as I do not have to repeatedly open oven doors,whilst something is baking/cooking.
The flame of the gas oven is situated at the bottom of the oven, therefore it cooks from bottom up. This is quite different to my previous oven where the flame was situated at the back. There is also a timer, which is good. The glass on the oven doors is double glazed and the cooker is constructed of brushed stainless steel. I was aslo surprised to find that there is a storage compartment at the bottom of the cooker, where non-flammable products can be stored. I use this space to store all my cake tins, baking trays e.t.c.
Overall, the performance of the cooker is excellent. There are 5 gas burners and in the middle is one large burner, with two more on each side. The cooker has automatic ignition, which is very good as my previous cooker had a seperate ignition button.
In terms of cleaning, I would not say that it is easy, but I doubt that there are any cookers that are. The ovens do tend to get dirty depending on the amount of cooking you do and it requires elbow grease to clean. It is best to clean the outer oven doors with a glass cleaning product as cleaning it with a wet cloth can leave smears. In terms of looks, the cooker is a stylish and a modern type of range cooker.
Overall, was very happy with the product as it lived up to my expectations and I have not found any faults as yet.
