Having received this cooker as a present from my in-laws (in order to replace the breaking-but-would-never-quite-die 1980s monstrosity that we had before), I can say that I am thoroughly impressed with this model.
Quite simply, this is an easy-to-use, good value product that is powerful and has everything you need for a basic cooker.
The ceramic top is very easy to wipe clean and comes with four hobs, in two different sizes. They heat up very quickly and when simmering stews, and sauces etc, I find that the lowest settings of 1 or 2 (out of 6) are more than enough, which proves to me the cost and energy efficiency (rated A).
The oven and grill compartments both heat up quickly and there is just enough space for a family roast (although don't expect to get a lot of veggies in if you're cooking a turkey). The shelves are easy to take out and the whole oven compartment cleans up very well, due to the enamel liners. It is also really handy to be able to check on the food without opening the door, thanks to the glass front and light inside.
All in all, I am extremely happy with this product. It provides very good value for a basic oven that cooks efficiently and scrubs up nicely.
