How to go about choosing an oven

Key considerations are: â- Robust construction, longevity
â- Easy to clean
â- Easy to use
â- Preventative maintenance. Regular servicing is crucial to maximise performance and efficiency.

Often the smaller things are overlooked, when making such a big purchase: â- Look for a well-insulated oven door with recessed hinges to save time cleaning.
â- Avoid costly and frequent repairs by opting for solid brass control knobs. Replacing plastic knobs is extremely common and they are not covered under warranty.
â- Choose an oven with working height electronic ignition as it saves knees and backs.

Specific to open burner purchases: â- Burners with pilot lights are essential in these energy saving times and those with pilot shields allow for spills.
â- Ensuring cooking grates are dishwasher safe saves time cleaning, as do deep drawn spillage pans
