We replaced our faulty older oven with this beauty at the end of 2012. What you see from the picture is what you get - the oven is a striking red colour and can make a great feature piece in your kitchen, but it has very basic features.
Most important of all, there is no timer function - there is the grill (one heat only) and gas mark 1-9. There is also an option for 'slow' cooking which I've not yet tried, but could be a good option when you're cooking a shoulder of lamb for example.
To turn on, you hold in the dial until the gas in the oven is lit. I've found that it can take a few attempts for the gas to catch but this may be more to do with the way my oven was set up rather than the oven model itself. I use the oven regularly and find that it provides an even cook - it doesn't cook one side more than the other for example, and it does match the cooking times suggested in published recipes.
The New World oven is definitely easier to clean and maintain than other ovens I've had experience of. The side walls are easy to access and the front panel is removable, so straightforward to slide out, wash and replace again. I have to admit that I didn't realise this at first as you really can't tell that it can come out, it does look very integrated with the rest of the oven. Every oven should have this feature!
PRICE AND SUMMARY
The New World oven is a mid-range oven in terms of cost, which I think must be down to the outward appearance as it is so basic. We were limited on choice as we had to agree a model with the landlord, but I think an oven HAS to have a timer at the very least. I know these days people can use mobile phones for the same job, but it's such a simple thing to add.
If you're looking for a great feature for your kitchen, I would consider this oven, but only if your budget can't stretch further to include better functionality.
