“Lacanche Macon is a great cooker”

Written on: 15/03/2014 by Geodesic (2 reviews written)

We've had ours for over 11 years now and have been very pleased with it. We had taken out Domestic and General insurance on it as we figured things may start to go wrong. The only things we have recently noticed are a worn oven seal and a noisy fan when the oven is first put on, but D & G told us that they couldn't get the parts and that we had to replace the whole unit! First they offered us a silver Britannia model that is way inferior (our Macon is red) and when I told them you could still… Read Full Review

“Fiercely hot gas oven”

Written on: 10/04/2013 by Lindabeazley (1 review written)

Biggest mistake was choosing a gas oven. It's very much for chefs/French cooks because even at the lowest setting you can't cook casseroles, fruit cakes, meringues etc. It is fiercely hot, especially near the heat source at the bottom, and consequently I don't generally cook more than roast potatoes in that oven. Despite all my research I wasn't warned about this. Have never managed to satisfactorily clean the gas burners which detracts from the appearance… Read Full Review

Please feel free to contact FdeF Ltd. We will be happy to discuss the problems you are having. Please mention this review when you phone

Ps to clean the brass burner hats soak them in a 50/50 solution of lemon juice and vinegar for a few hours then scrub with a nylon scrubbing pad and rinse with water.

As the gas oven runs on commercial, not domestic temperatures, it is designed to reach far higher temperatures; this is a feature not a fault. You are correct, you cannot cook a casserole or a meringue but it is about using the right oven for the right thing. The gas oven is far better than the electric for searing meat for example. The gas oven is also not mandatory, the cooker can be ordered with two electric ovens instead. As per my review of my 15 year old Cluny, I think people must do their research before buying Lacanche; they are not cookers for people who cook oven chips, but for serious cooks. I do agree however about the brass burners, mine were long since a shiny brass finish! (I think the new models no longer have the brass burners.)

“Doe it get any better?”

Written on: 12/07/2012

We've owned a Lacanche Macon for almost 10 years and love to cook. Having a little time to see what is being reviewed about Lacanche I'm amazed at some of the negative comments on this site that the Cluny has received. Still, each to their own. There are comments on cleaning and the knobs getting hot. Cleaning first. The hob is easy to clean, just pour a little water out of the kettle onto the food spills or splatter when you have finished using the hob. When you come back to it, just sponge… Read Full Review

I'm really pleased you like your oven but I'm not impressed with mine. I made a mistake and put my two star review in the "Cluny" camp.
Cleaning is not a problem and I lay foil in the bottom of the electric oven to catch most of anything that finds it way there.
But the knobs do heat up when the grill is in use and also to a large degree when the ovens are on due to the vent that runs along the complete width just below the row of nobs.
I'm no expert on cookers but after 8 years the fan oven element burned out and was extremely difficult to replace because there was no slack on the two heat resistant wires that fit onto the element. Hoping a local spares for ovens would fit, I found in comparison that the quality of the element was no better than one from a cheap and cheerful cooker, although the element was 5 times more expensive. I also needed to replaced the rubber seal around the door at the same time.
Now 2 years on from that the fan is playing up and will soon need to be replaced.
For the past 5 years one of the hob burners has been difficult to ignite, when I press the ignition button I can hear that it is sparking from underneath the hob base which probably means the insulation on the ignition wire to that particular burner has deteriorated. I would have thought the wiring should last in excess of 30 years.
still cooking.

Hi, seems you like to cook to. Regarding the knobs, if the oven seal is deteriorating then it's reasonable to think that oven heat can escape and warm up the knobs. It's a 2 minute job to replace a seal. Can I ask if you grill with the door open because on a Lacanche you always grill with the door closed. Never open. If you go onto Youtube and type in Lacanche there are some excellent tutorials that show you how to adjust different things including checking out the spark and adjusting it if necessary as it may have moved a little when the hobs been cleaned.
