Finally getting a new one - yay!
I like the look of this but it's not a brand I've heard of in terms of cookers and the knob and food settings are a bit weird. Anyone fancy finding me something similar?

I'm rubbish at shopping but I would definitely recommend Neff. Mine's an electric fan oven and gas hob and I love it

I think Neff are out of my price range, don't really want to pay more than £500 MrsE.

Ours is built in, it's a Hotpoint one so not a lot of help if you're after free standing.
I'll have a look in Which for you - electric I'm guessing.

Thanks DD that's very helpful I will google those ones you mention. I don't mind paying a tad over, but don't want to stretch into the thousands.
Would you mind seeing what the rating is on the cannon in my original post?

Sure, here it is I think, although doesn't have the S at the end - not rated quite so high at 65%
The freestanding Cannon C60ETC electric cooker is a multifunctional oven and grill; the main oven can be used in fan or conventional mode, and the top oven can be used for conventional baking or grilling. We put this electric cooker through its paces in our labs to see how well it works.
The Cannon C60ETC is easy to use and easy to clean, but the hob plates don't heat evenly all the way across.
The hob heats up quickly but the centre of the hob plate gets significantly hotter than the edges, so you'll need to stir food regularly to ensure that it's evenly cooked.
Fan or conventional oven options
The main oven can be used in fan or conventional mode, and the thermostat is accurate, but the oven heats slowly. The top oven can be used for conventional baking or grilling. Grilling isn't bad, but you'll have to work around the door, which has to remain open.
Easy to operate
The C60ETC is easy to use - both ovens have internal lighting and non-tip shelves, and the top oven has telescopic runners to help slide food in and out. Catalytic linings in both ovens help to keep them clean, and the ceramic hob is easy to wipe down too.
There's a timer that can be programmed in advance to give fully automatic cooking, which means that the oven switches on and off automatically according to your chosen cooking duration and end time. There's also a minute minder, which is a countdown timer that sounds an alarm when your cooking time is up. Accessories supplied include a grill pan, dripping pan and recipe book.
This model is available in cream (C60ETC) and stainless steel (C60ETX).
Pros: Fan and conventional mode, digital timer
Cons: Hob plates aren't evenly heated
If you want details of any of the which reports for the others let me know.

Thanks DD. I should have said in my original post it has to be cream to match the kitchen.
08/01/2014 at 09:59
It does look cream in the pics, and pretty much the same as what you posted
