The title basically says it all. The cooker and hob *look* quite nice, and the removable door glass is a nice touch. But the controls are poor quality, with the clock / timer buttons in particular sticking and seizing. The hob is the worst feature though, with absolutely no possibility to control it -- setting 1 is as raging hot as setting 8. The halogen is as bad as the ceramics. The service & support low mark is given because no owner's guide is available on their website… Read Full Review

My gas control knobs are in my view not fit for purpose. Customers are buying spares on a regular basis at inflated prices. This is a rip off. I would never purchase Stoves products again. When my third set of knobs disintegrate, the product will be replaced by a fit for purpose product from a reputable manufacturer - not Stoves … Read Full Review

The hob either boils or takes an age to heat....there is no chance to simmer. And it's ridiculous to have a grill with one temperature,there is no shield for the knobs either.It's a cheap and nasty work of absolutely no use to any-one who actually cooks and doesn't wing it. The designers were obviously away on holiday at the time this rubbish was ok'd for production !!!… Read Full Review

This cooker is dreadful for price paid, £600 knobs broke in 3months plates are all full on no regulation just three years on, we had the choice of this one or hot point at £300 may as well have gone for that, could have bought another if it failed with the extra £ 300 I spent on the stove, more money does not mean better cooker I liked the look of it. Wish I hadn't gone for looks.weve only had two cookers in fifty years before this one looks like we chose badly this time We did our… Read Full Review

Avoid this stove at all costs. After spending £600 on it I have had to purchase new knobs every six months at a cost of £24 for 3, so far this has cost me £200. The problem is they are plastic and snap. I would never purchase this make again… Read Full Review

Had this cooker for nearly four years and luckily had the sense to take out extended cover on second set of tacky plastic knobs and all four rings seem to have one setting which is take forever to heat up but then just boil it does not seem to understand simmer. This was my second stoves oven and I am sorry I replaced the first one the only problem I had was the gold transfers identifying which ring you where choosing had worn away. Stoves seem to think they can trade on their good name of the… Read Full Review

I have recently purchased a Stoves cooker as it ticked all the boxes and made in the UK, but unfortunately the good have now been out weighed by the bad . The problem I have is with the knobs, when you have both ovens on the knobs become so hot you need to use oven gloves to turn the hob knobs on. I contacted Stoves, who duly sent out an engineer, all he said was the cooker complies to EU regs. I have now emailed Stoves now on 3 occasions complaining of the design fault without any… Read Full Review

To be fair, the Stoves free-standing cooker was included when we bought the house. However, it was in perfect condition as it was almost new then, part of a full and fairly expensive kitchen refurbishment completed to sell the house. The control knobs are poor quality plastic and after a year half are broken. Replacements cost over £7 each! The cooker surface scratches very easily, and the top oven has stopped working. Apart from that.....! Unfortunately I can't think of many… Read Full Review

I have owned several Stoves Ovens in the past. Our latest purchase was the Electric Stoves 61 ehdo. This was not a cheap oven by any means however I was happy to pay the premium in a trusted name like Stoves. All my previous ovens were excellent but sadly this model falls far short in terms of quality, reliability and performance. As other reviewers have stated the knobs do indeed all break and crack within the first 12 months. The glass top cooking surface of the oven scratches very easily… Read Full Review

I have a Stoves model 61GDO and although it is not the same model as the other reviews they all share the same problem as I do THE RUBBISH KNOBS. For a cooker that is as expensive as these models are the knobs are appalling and as I said to their customer services if I continue to replace the knobs at the present rate at around £40 a time in 6 years I could have bought a new cooker. TIME TO LOOK AT THE DESIGN, STOVES, as we can't all be wrong. I will say that when I complained by e.mail they… Read Full Review

My Stoves gas oven is less than 2 years old and I hate it.
The useless 'foil' coating on all the knobs has come off, revealing the plastic underneath, which in turn has even melted to a bubbly blob on one and cracked clean in half on another!
I contacted Stoves to tell them how appalled I am with my purchase and even sent them pictures of the ruined control knobs...they just said I could buy new ones for £7 each!!
Why should I pay out £42 just for them to go the same way?… Read Full Review

Control knobs are too weak and made of plastic. They disintegrate and break very quickly and at £13 each to replace thats over £80 extra you will need to pay!
Rubbish build quality and not what you would expect from stoves!… Read Full Review

We have owned this cooker for just over a year and the built quality is appauling. The control knobs are now splitting and becoming useless at the rate of one a week. Please do not buy this cooker find one with sturdy metal compotents.
The grill tray distorts when hot! great idea what else do you expect it to do. I cannot wait to replace this and i will certainly not be buying from this manufacturer again… Read Full Review
