Want a great cooker? Want a cooker thats easy to clean? Want a grilled cheese but don't have a grill? Then this is the cooker for you. The four rings on top are easy to use with the 4 controls on the front after a couple of years use you can still see what the controls say and do some cookers let you leave it to chnce but not this one.The controls are on the front at the top of the cooker and all 4 rings have 6 levels for slow or fast heating. Two of the rings are for small pans and the other two are for large pans and they also have a red circle in the centre that shows when its hot but the rings have changed color after about a year so the non stick they are made of kind of rub off but i guess that comes with general usage. Now for the grill, it comes with a fully removable rack and a tray rack for grilling that has a detachable handle which makes it easier to clean and the control is on the top of the cooker the grill door pulls downwards to reveal the grill so its easy to rest the tray while cooking. The oven section has two metal shelves that are fully removable for cleaning making a large space when removed for easy cleaning. The oven door opens to the left and has a glass pane on the front so you cn check how your food is cooking.
We own a Belling this product as shown and have had this for over seven years this is my review on the product and the 'awesome guarantee' I hope it helps your choice.
We chose this brand mainly for the reputation, which we heard was good ad the price was just right for us at the time.
We made this purchase on Littlewoods.com and we also purchased a guarantee which has saved us lots of money for the extra costs of things over the years.
This is a freestanding cooker that looks compact and on the smaller side but actually is very durable and has serve us well for all these years.
The hob consists of 4 elements
Fan electric oven
Easy clean enamel
2 shelves [removeable]
The main door has a side door
Another conventional oven
I am not good with all the fancy speak and jargon all I can give in this review is my view as a customer.
There was an option for free installation and removal of our previous appliance which we were very grateful for.
The installation took half an hour and was tested before they left.
The fan was a lot stronger than we anticipated and we were glad of it but it did mean we had to sit with the oven a lot [ we looked slightly potty] to check the food and make those ammendments but that was becuase our previous oven was sooooo slow.
Now we were on track with the recommended cooking time from receips.
The Grill/ Oven was a godsend at Christmas because we now had that extra place to cook the potatoes and the bits and pieces alongside it while the turkey was doing.
Seemed like these were in a world of their own at first, our previous oven again was slow to heat up but these are rapid!
The boiling time was reduced which was great for the electric bills.
The whole oven is very easy to clean and has kept in good condition for seven years only because, we believe, the insurance, has helped us.This is recommended to save you time, money and hassle.
We have contacted Belling for three faults in seven years, which I think is reasonable.
The three issues were,
The knobs of the cooker came off and broke, they were immediately replaced without any fuss. There was no inconvenience in the 24 hours they came out because the knobs can easily be removed from the hob your using and clicked back on.
The fan in the over stopped And that was after five years. The man came out within 24 hours and replaced it within half an hour and tested the rest of the oven.
The oven door was slightly jammed again once in seven years.
Overall this oven has been great and we are really impressed wth their products and services.
Head to Belling.com where they have more choice available or Littlewoods to see how good the insurance can be for you.
Do not buy this product, after 2 years use timer gave up and cost £158.68 for new timer. You cannot use the main oven without the timer working, just what I wanted just before Christmas. More interested in flogging insurance policy which cost about £10 less. I had someone to fit the part who was qualified and only going to cost me £20 to have it fitted.
