This being our first electric cooker having used gas for the last fifty years has generally proven to be quiet easy and rewarding but have some observations which might be beneficial to perspective purchases.
First the positives.
Both ovens work well and we found the temperatures set to be accurate with a hysteresis of 15°C which we assume reasonable compared to our old gas cooker which had no obvious hysteresis.
The induction hobs appear to very efficient and with fine temperature adjustment although it’s taking a little time to get used to using these hobs.
We’re amazed by how little heat is introduced in to the top oven when using the lower oven, although we can no longer use the residual heat to warm the plates. Further there is very little if any heat introduced into the cabinets located either side of the cooker.
The major annoyance is the cooling fans, although whilst cooking there are just acceptable but once you’ve finished with the cooker the fans will run for up to two hours. So annoying we have to keep the kitchen door shut.
Minor annoyances are the dial marking could be brighter as you need good light to clearly see the markings, also the induction hob positions are also difficult to see and your not sure if the pan is correctly positioned.
The top oven grill dial shows a narrow grill and a wide grill symbol but it appears the narrow grill still covers the whole grill but have not studied this in detail.
Otherwise we are generally pleased with the cooker.
A self-cleaning cooker means spotless, every time
The Catalytic Cleaning feature prevents dirt and grease from building up in the freestanding cooker's oven. This self-cleaning technology automatically activates when the temperature reaches 250°C and removes cooking residue. Meaning no scrubbing, just spotless.
