Advantages: Easy to clean hobs, double oven very handy
Disadvantages: Quality control missed obvious fault
I bought one of these to replace a much older cooker unit recently, and what attracted me initially was the ceramic hobs. For those who may not be familiar, these types of oven have a completely flat top which looks like black glass, and the heating elements are underneath the glass.
Obviously this makes keeping the hobs clean much easier - and they look quite nifty too. One thing to beware is the temptation to use the flat surface to put things on - don't do it!
Hotpoint have always been a good make for ovens, and this model is no exception or let-down. The hobs work well, and the double oven feature is brilliant, not only saving electricity as the area heated is much smaller, but also allowing you do actually cook different items at different temperatures. The fan oven section works as advertised - the results come out nice and evenly browned.
There is a digital clock which is permanently on, and you can make use of timing functions should you wish.
The only fault I had on mine was the the screws holding one side of the top oven shelf slot had been mounted too high, which I spent a few minutes trying to sort out. Rather worrying as there were all sorts of stickers proclaiming 'quality tested' with the instructions. That said, the build quality otherwise really is very good, and it feels very solid.
Summary: Great oven from Hotpoint
