Glass lid cutting off gas supply when closed and has a timer, like my previous cooker.
Oven temperature - food takes twice as long to cook using guide lines on products especially using top oven. Have had engineer out who assures me the oven reaches correct temp but admits that the ovens are not insulated so heat loss does occur. Find this very frustrating. The grill handle is difficult to attach to pan when under the grill even using the indented shelf area. The flimsy guard that has to be attached to the shelf when grilling is a bad idea. The separate hob pan stands tend to move easy would of been better to be two long ones instead of four small ones and more substantial. (Presume small individual ones for ease of cleaning.)
Chose a Cannon 6 months ago as I no longer could get a New World Plan 6 gas cooker (had one for 18 years and cooked like a dream). Parts not available either so nearest I could find was the Chesterfield. Ovens do condensate and cooks better when both ovens on. The overall look is good but on closer inspection find that the quality that you expect from Cannon is not there.
