Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price and does the job. My favourite thing about this cooker is the look. It looks great in my 1 bedroom apartment’s simple Bunnings kitchen. No electricity connection required. Simple controls and easy to clean, apart from a strangely located heat escape vent right behind the burners, food can fall down there but you cannot clean it. What I like about the gas oven is that moisture is locked into your baking, there is less drying out of baked vegetables etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Bit Disappointed This cooker replaced our old 20 year Chef and the new one is no where the build quality of the old Chef. And its also slightly smaller in the oven compartment than our old one even though its bigger in the width and we had to cut down our bench tops to fit. Soon after being fitted by a gas fitter (which must be done by law) we have had to have the fan replaced and then a complete new oven replacement - refitted by Chef - all withhin a week of purchase. Things to note on this cooker: the gas regulator now sticks out the back of the cooker at a 30+ degree angle, between oven and grill height so if you wanted to put this oven up against the wall you will need to chase the wall out by at least 30-50mm. I had to chase the brickwork out and even after doing that the oven cannot fit flush against the rear wall because of the flexi hose having to be attached to the regulator half way up the cooker so its at least 10-20mm away from the back wall. The adjusting legs are the cheapest plastic legs I have ever seen and given this has to be locked into position by these plastic feet at the rear of the oven for safety compliance anything other than a dead level floor will cause problems as the plastic screw legs bend on fitting. To secure the front of the cooker with the compliance to law floor bolt, the bottom kick plate has to be removed each time it would need to be moved and this can only be done with the oven door open and down through the door gap which causes screw driver or drill driver bit to scratch the cooker even with professional fitting. The noise of the convection fan is louder than even the loudest rangehood which is very annoying (the noise only comes with the heat of the oven - so hotter the oven the louder the fan). In hindsight we should have done more research and purchased a different model of gas cooker altogether. The only reason we give it 3 stars other than 1, is it still cooks which is its primary function. Please note: If offered, do accept any retailers offer of fitting this oven because due to compliance laws and fitting of safety requirments, it cost us over $300 to have fitted by a gas fitter organised by us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good Unit The oven works well. The only issue is the legs are not very solid and if the floor is a little bit uneven, the plate at the rear where the legs slide can be difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very functional The grate on the large burner for the wok needs to be flat,a separate wok adaptor would be better. Otherwise extremely happy, a nice product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value stove We are so pleased to have purchased our stove. It works beautifully for baking and on top the small burner allows for very low slow cooking. The wok burner is perfect. The grill is electric so no shooting flames like our old stove! Couldn’t be more pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks nice. Had this stove a month and not very pleased with it. The double glass door allows heat to make all the controls very hot. The supposedly cool glass front, isn't. Ours arrived damaged & with no griller handle. Luckily the old griller handle fitted. The griller is a fool of a thing. The single side rails just hang there and move or fall out if you take the tray off. The reflector comes down too far so you can't put anything with height under the griller.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from bad design We have always had Chef stoves but this one is useless. It has an open grate at the back where food falls down and goes goodness knows where, mice food for sure. The grill is badly designed because you can't get the food close enough to the grill for it to cook at a decent rate ie you can't use the top shelf of the grill because the front of the stove is so low it scrapes off whatever you are wanting to cook. So the highest you can get is the second shelf and it takes ages and is extremely uneven. Would never buy another one. We've had this 18 months and are about to throw it away. The wok plate is a nuisance with its raised support, it interferes with pans going on the other three rings.
