Having recently moved property the only issue we identified ourselves needing immediately after dragging our possessions out of storage was an electric cooker.
Becoming on pretty a strict budget of 200 we were expecting to have to shop around a bit to get the most for our capital. Yet this turned out not to be the case as we identified highly couple of cookers falling into the much less than 200 range that corporations truly had in stock at the time.
The item we sooner or later settled for was the NewWorld ES50W, free-standing single electric cooker. The cost was nicely inside budget at 169.97 + 18.50 delivery from Tesco.com which also allowed us to choose our delivery date. The cost in honesty pretty shocked us as we were not expecting a nicely recognized brand name cooker such as this for prices we were willing to pay.
When the cooker was delivered it was undamaged and was precisely what we had been expecting. A simple white 4 hob cooker with a single oven with grill feature. The cooker has a glass panel in the door, this is not removable as with some ovens but is straightforward to clean as it is flush with its surrounding. The door opens downwards rather than swinging open which could be an inconvenience in smaller spaces, but was not some thing that influenced our getting selection.
The dials to operate the oven and hobs are on the front above the oven section, they are huge and clear enough to be understood and operate with ease. The only issue here is that the dials are produced from grey plastic which looks low-cost and is the only bit that honestly shows this cooker as a budget item.
The dials are not all that solid and wobble about a small in directions they are not meant to move in, yet they do not give the feeling they are going to fall off inside a week just that they are just about up to the job.
There is 1 dial for each and every individual hob all numbered 1-6, 1 to control the oven/grill temperature and one more to choose the mode of the oven. The possibilities here are top heat only, bottom heat only, or conventional oven employing both the top and bottom elements. This control also will allow the user to choose the grill function employing a separate top element. The oven and grill can be heated to a maximum of 250 degrees.
Inside the cooker we were supplied with a grill tray with a removable handle and a wire food tray insert, then one more wire shelf for common use.
We hired a qualified electrician to fit our cooker, and as he was a friend of a friend we managed to pay just 30 for this luxury. Everywhere else we had spoken to wanted 70 plus which is undoubtedly some thing to bear in mind when attempting to get a cooker cheaply. The job was carried out in a small much less than half hour and the electrician mentioned it was just a normal fitment requiring no modification to wire in.
A single issue we were advised to do when having the cooker installed was to fit the security chains that attach to the wall behind the cooker and stop it from tipping if the door is opened as well rapidly. Once more this was a minor chore for such a low-cost cooker and is unlikely to tip anyway because the feet are adjustable permitting the cooker to sit flat on our uneven kitchen floor.
The cooker is an A-rated appliance which means it isn't going to price us the earth to run, which I thought to be one more terrific bonus for such a low-cost cooker. It has a 48 litre capacity, that did not mean a lot to me on paper but is very easily huge enough for items such as huge pizzas, swallows up substantial complete chickens with no issue what-so-ever, and would likely just about do a half decent size turkey.
The external measurements of the oven are as follows:-
Width: - 500mm
Depth: - 600mm
Height:- 900mm 930mm (based on feet adjustment)
The maximum power usage is 7000W at any 1 time which means all of the rings can be employed on the maximum heat setting at when along with either the grill or the oven on at the very same time.
The oven typically heats inside ten minutes and there is a red light on the front that extinguishes when the oven is up to temperature. Becoming a conventional oven rather than a fan oven I have identified this to cook food pretty nicely with no obvious signs of hot-spots etc.
The grill is perfectly functional and also gets up to temperature pretty rapidly yet has the usual issue of element grills and however doesnt perform pretty as nicely as the oven in stopping hotspots directly below the grill element which means food needs to be shifted about a fair bit while cooking.
The hobs are swift to heat also and are straightforward to clean when cool with just a small elbow grease necessary. The only issue here is as with most electric ovens the hobs are not swift enough to lose heat when turned down while cooking, for instance when attempting to hold some thing at a simmer it is tricky to stop it just boiling.
The instruction booklet supplied with this cooker was also fairly comprehensive giving a chart with cooking directions for such factors as pastry, cakes biscuits and also a guide to calculating roasting times for joints of meat and poultry etc. This has come in most handy as these guides are particular to the cooker and as most of us know no two cookers are the very same.
General I have been highly impressed with this cooker, especially as it came at such a low-cost cost. As previously mentioned the dials could do with being a bit sturdier to the touch. This is the only issue I really feel that lets this great excellent cooker show its cheapness.
I would not hesitate to advocate this cooker to anybody hunting for a low-cost, and so far proving to be trustworthy means of cooking.
