Over the years we have owned two Cannon range cookers. With our new kitchen almost complete we researched on line and decided that the Cannon Traditional 100 dual fuel range cooker would fit the bill perfectly. At a price in excess of £1,100 it was not a purchase we were prepared to make without seeing one first. IMPOSSIBLE!!. Firstly, we tried Curry's, then John Lewis, B&Q, Homebase no joy at any. We tried Rangecookers in Chester and Built in Kitchen Appliances in Liverpool still no... (read more)

I totally agree with the other reviewers. In our experience, the front of the door actually came away in my partners hands. She was lucky not to have been scalded. My official complaint to Cannon was efectivel ignored. I replaced the interior bracket and refitted the door, but it is showing signs of weakening again. In my opinion, the oven door handle should be vertical and not horizontal, as this would reduce the stress on the flimsy brackets. I have noticed that the newer models have... (read more)

this is the worst oven i have ever owned...it consantly cuts out, thats if you can get it to ignite in the first place, the oven door keeps coming loose and now the whole glass frontage has fallen off.
A terrible design, the front glass panel is only held on by two alliminum piece's that are only a maximum of 2 mm...how ridiculus is that, to hold something of that weight.
I personally think they should of been recalled as they are dangerous.
If your thinking of buying this product....DONT DO... (read more)

We have had the Cannon "Stratford" Oven about 18 months and have experienced the same issues as the other reviewers. Essentially,the gas cuts off which I initially thought was because of poor supply. I have since discovered that it is a "safety" feature!
However, the main issue I have is with the oven door. It has always been temperamental and this this evening,the outer skin came away in my partners hands!
It was a harrowing experience, particularly as our grandchildren were in the vicinity... (read more)

I had my cannon stratford for just over 2 years when a fault developed. The oven just wouldn't stay lit. Cannon wanted about £100 just to come out and look at it! I couldn't afford this so I bought a new thermocouple on Ebay for £10 approx. and fitted it myself, it worked fine for a week or so then the same fault developed again, the oven wouldn't stay lit. I bought a 2nd replacement thermocouple and fitted it but the same fault developed again. Wish I'd never bought this cooker. I now have... (read more)

I unfortunately bought a Cannon Stratford 18 months ago, and now the oven turns itself off in the middle of cooking for no reason. I notice that another user has the same problem. Anyone know what it might be? I would never buy a cannon cooker again, as one of the burner spark ignitions didn't work either on the day it was delivered. Total junk! (read more)

The Cannon Stratford fits into small areas. The safety feature enables the cut off if the lid is placed on top, which is fine but if you use a large pot/pan the cooker thinks the lid is placed on top and cuts out the gas! so as long as you use small utensils its fine. I don't think It is suitable for large indian utensils, karhis or dechkas. plus the gas output is mediocre for indian cooking it takes forever to buna meat ( thats after the initial fight to get the flame to stay put!) and a...

Oven needs a new thermostat which is apparently unavailable but nobody has informed me. I had to keep phoning customer services at my expense. Have been pushed from department to department. Eventually after six weeks we were told the part was obsolete. Not good for a cooker which is under 18 months old. To have it replaced by Insurance is also expensive, and the cooker recommended Cannon C50GLK has not even got good reviews.
Anyone contemplating a Cannon Stratford - don't bother.

The Cannon Stratford cooker (model number 10535G MK4) is a faulty badly designed unit. It now requires a new thermostat, but Cannon dont have any and have no idea when it will be back in stock! Result no cooker and its been nearly 2 weeks waiting.
Customer services is poor and the complaints department 0870 442 7665 option 3 have hardly ever answered the phone. (read more)

The Cannon Stratford has a stylish look and is easy to keep clean. Engineers have tried three times to mend a fault which causes the oven to just shut off without warning. hopefully this last visit has solved the problem. Cannon are always good quality and I would buy another Cannon without hesitation. (read more)
