“Worst cooker ever”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Specialistdiabetesnurse (1 review written)

Bought this cooker for my new kitchen, trouble with top oven, had guy out on numerous occasions, just never worked. Now the grill won't work, will occasionally stay on after five attempts of igniting. Nightmare at Christmas or when entertaining, never enough working to cook properly, I will have to change it, could kick myself because the one I discarded worked fine, learnt my lesson big style, total waste of money… Read Full Review

“Looks good and thats as far as it goes!”

Written on: 14/06/2014

Bought this cooker in 2014 and was very impressed with the build and looks but once it was installed we realised what a duff piece of kitchen ware this is. The fan in the top oven/grill comes on as soon as the door is opened - WHY! The oven will go out on occasions if it feels like it. The grill has just two settings, you can either have it on or off there is no variation. The grill igniter is sited at the front of the oven space - ideally placed for hitting with the grill pan when being… Read Full Review

“complete load of rubbish”

Written on: 10/04/2014

I purchased this oven in 2012! I loved the look of it, but it does not live up to expectations, the top oven takes for ever to ignite and then it goes out, and it is the worst cooker I have ever had to clean out. the back panel on the hob has gone white and won't come off I don't recommend this cooker at all… Read Full Review

“dreadful cooker”

Written on: 25/03/2014 by eelcatcher (1 review written)

Had the gourmet classic black fitted when i moved in 2011. Really awkward to to work and light the top oven. Got the hang of this , being no Gordon Ramsey it took a while. The missus is a trained chef and she struggles with it. The bottom cooker nob broke, and i cant find a replacement anywhere. Tried the internet couldn't match cooker control up. Now the grill dont work, so creme brulee is a non starter. Ive worked with about ten cookers in my time and have been a male single parent for a long… Read Full Review

“Glass door exploded!!”

Written on: 07/01/2014 by janel1960 (1 review written)

I have owned this cooker for 3 days and had a gas safe engineer fit this morning. Having read the booklet I lit both ovens on their highest settings for a 30 minute 'Initial Heating' period (as stated on page 19 of the booklet. 10 minutes into the 'Initial Heating' period the inner glass of the bottom oven EXPLODED!!! The glass shattered into tiny pieces over the entire kitchen floor and inside the cooker. Having rung the manufacturer, which is Beko, I now have to wait for an engineer to ring… Read Full Review

“Quality compromised for looks...”

Written on: 05/01/2014 by Myview33 (1 review written)

I too bought this cooker based on looks but have to agree with almost every review on here apart from I've had no problems with the top of the cooker...yet. I'd have to scrap it to replace as couldn't even sell it on second hand if I wanted to. Would have to be honest about the item I'm selling and can hardly say 'top oven always has to be lit twice as always goes off on own' 'grill takes on average 6 attempts to light no matter how long you hold the button in' and the rest... It's… Read Full Review

“looks can decieve. i was”

Written on: 31/12/2013

i liked this cooker the moment i saw it. at first every thing worked fine i was really impressed. one the best things about it was the grill everything cooked quickly and evenly. now its a bloody useless piece of kit the grill takes a hour to light ( ok i am exagerating ) seriously it will not light at all for a few secounds, when it does and after holding the control button down as per instructions for 15-20 secounds it goes out again. i repeat this process over and over. after a few minutes… Read Full Review

“Drives me mad!!”

Written on: 16/12/2013 by wittersaxe (1 review written)

Like others, I bought this cooker (GR6GVCP) 3 years ago, mainly because it looked great. Soon after purchase the main oven's thermostat was replaced - I'd attempted to cook dauphinoise potatoes, which cooked for hours and were still semi-raw! Earlier this year, I finally capitulated and booked a service engineer, under the warranty, to establish why the top oven kept going out in the middle of cooking. I had put up with this fault almost since purchase. He "adjusted" things, and also discovered… Read Full Review

“Leisure no pleasure”

Written on: 13/12/2013 by Beanheater (1 review written)

We kept ours for a whole 5 months mainly due to the time it took for the guarantee technician to come out three times to fail to get the ovens to cook something properly. This cooker has a fundamental design problem and the sooner Leisure admit this and do something the better it will be for all. Currys took ours away today and delivered our chosen replacement - not, you guessed it, a Leisure and we just had a perfectly cooked meal, cooked in the suggested time at the suggested oven setting… Read Full Review

Can I just ask how long you have had this cooker? If it's for a substantial amount of time either you reviewing another product by mistake or you have been extremely lucky! Or on the other hand....you may work for Leisure(?)!

“Complete rubbish”

Written on: 30/03/2013

If I could stand outside every Comet store in the country , I would have a big banner saying " do not purchace this cooker." Lovely looking cooker. First we had no oven. No gas to oven or ignition. Guy came out and stuck a screw driver in the oven to adjust some screw. He got a massive belt of it. A month later It's gone again. Not just the oven , but the grill this time. As the oven is low please watch your toes. Myself and the wife AND Mmother-in-law have all been hurt opening the door which… Read Full Review

“Waste of Money”

Written on: 18/03/2013 by dianedethal (1 review written)

This cooker looks good for a short while and then the dials which are plastic peel, the hob is impossible to clean and the cooker seems to be going rusty on the joins. It has never cooked at the correct temperature,top oven cooks to quick and fan oven too slow. In fact after about 14 months the fan oven stopped working at all. I have not had it repaired because i don't want to waste any more money on it. It is without a doubt the worst product i have ever bought… Read Full Review

“Didn't live up to my expectations”

Written on: 16/03/2013

We bought this cooker in 2011 and I must say I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. First to go was the ignition for the grill, when I looked at it the ignition lighter had dropped down. So we had to by a lighter to operate the grill. Next to go was the grill itself we can’t light it at all now when we release switch the grill cuts out. So no grill now, as for the oven it’s very slow. Made a mistake should have kept my fan assisted oven and gas hob… Read Full Review

“Poor investment”

Written on: 01/03/2013

Purchased Leisure GRB6GVK cooker to replace previous Leisure cooker dreadful idea. Thought the new cooker looked good and would live up to the standard set by my old cooker. May look good but performance of oven awful so slow and takes ages for even the most simple dishes - my cooking has certainly deteriorated since using it. Bottom oven too low obviously not suitable for persons suffering from back problems and therefore not easy to clean! No adjustment available for Grill heat and why… Read Full Review

I actually own one of these and I would not recommend it to anyone
It takes forever to cook anything the shelves are too small .The grill wont stay on which I might say has not been used that often since it is out of warranty I cannot get it fixed. My overall opinion of this cooker is it may look nice but it is a cheaply badly made product
I am now looking to buy another cooker after only having had this one two and half years

“All style - no quality”

Written on: 06/06/2012 by body1works (1 review written)

I have bought Leisure cookers in the past and have used them for years. So I was quite happy to purchase a new Leisure Product when the time came. This model looks the business - modern and stylish. It was some years ago now when the Gourmet Classic first came out - I waited for three months whilst it was imported and was so excited when it arrived. It is nowhere near the quality of other Leisure products I have bought. The product is very 'tinny' with hardly any insulation which means that the… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2012

I totally agree with these comments. We also have had serious problems with getting the temperature right with the bottom oven. The top oven also will not stay alight and is difficult to re-light when it goes out. Yes, the overall feel is tinny and cheap, though the price isn't. Ours is black and the enamel hasn't peeled, also the griddle has been fine. All the other negative points however are absolutely true. We are considering giving it up, taking the financial hit and buying something else. Don't be persuaded by the classy looks.

This sounds just like my cooker all the things you say are true because the same things have happen with my cooker, to the oven going out all the time. And my grill won't stay on, and everything has to be cooked on the highest number or forget it being cooked come on leisure sort this out ?
