I bought this cooker over 2 years ago and it's been my best ever purchase. I paid around £400 for it from Kays Lifestyle, so I expect it was a little overpriced compared to other stores from the catalogue. This didn't include installation but luckily I have a friend who is Corgi registered. The main reason for this purchase was that I had previously been using an OLD cooker with eye level gas grill - space was limited. So this was a bonus to see that my new cooker not only had a separate grill, but the grill also doubled as a top oven too. The cooker looks fantastic, the internal glass door inserts are removable so are very easy to keep clean, and the non stick coating inside the oven and grill makes "cleaning the oven" somewhat less frown-inducing than what I was used to. All of the steel trays and holders are easily removable too. The main bottom oven pre-heats very quickly, you should follow the guides for fan assisted ovens when deciding cooking time with this oven. The reason i say this, is I was told it was not fan assisted (it has a fan, i'm no expert but i'd say that it assists) and the cooking times are brilliant. The main oven distibutes the heat perfectly, i've used several cookers which i've had to spin food around halfway through to make sure it's not being burned at the back - but this one never has. The grill only has one heat setting, but you can adjust the height of the grill pan to vary the heat. The grill pan itself is very generously sized and you are given a handle to keep unattached from the pan to allow for easy storage and is very easy to slide onto the pan. The top oven is ideal for things like pizza's or anything not worth using the big oven for, although it's not as good at distributing the heat around so I would only use this for cooking small things, preheating cooked food or finishing off things like roasties when making a roast dinner. The hob has 3 different sizes which I've found to be perfect for cooking any large meal, 1 large, 2 medium and a small simmer hob. The cooker has a digital display which you can set as a clock, and is really simple to use as a timer, there is a couple of different style beeps you can set too, depending on how well you need to hear it. The light inside the cooker works on both the top oven/grill and the bottom oven at the same time. It's bright enough to see clearly what you're cooking with the door closed, unlike many other cookers I have used. This oven got my attention by the brilliant safety features. If you lift down the glass lid when the hob controls are on, it will not only switch off the gas supply, but it will turn the knobs too. The grill is the same, and shuts off the supply when the door is closed. I am fully confident I won't have to buy another cooker for at least 10 years, this Stoves oven looks as new as the day i bought it. I would highly recommend this brand to anyone, just remember to tell them you don't want insurance on it the first time they write to you, or it never ends!
