I bought the Hotpoint BD52 cooker one month ago. Found that timer alarm is pathetic, you can hardly hear it from 2 metres away. (read more)

Bought my Hotpoint BD52 to match the black gas hob that looks and cleans great. Oven sleek and modern looking but really not too happy with how long it lasted. Only use it once a week too so been used150 times max - not happy bunny tonight. (read more)
