“Dangerous Design & Unreliable”

Written on: 08/06/2014 by PhillipCook (1 review written)

Clearly not a well thought out design that would not go to market today for a host of reasons, not least health & safety issues. Constant melting front knobs, no safe option offered by Dimplex. Front convection is hopeless with the vents indelibly burning the front facia. Constant sparking of both ignition systems is alarming. Upper grill has no gas adjustment just on/off. Timer/clock runs as it wants has a mind of it's own. Never used the timer for fear of it doing the same. Stoves… Read Full Review

“THE WORST OVEN EVER”

Written on: 18/01/2014

Like all the rest our knobs have melted, we are also on our second lot (at our expense) which also melted after just 1 use. We are so disappointed and think that the control panel getting that hot is really dangerous. Needless to say we will not be buying Stoves again!… Read Full Review

“Stoves 700GDO Visual attraction the only good thing...”

Written on: 21/10/2013 by Mazza2 (1 review written)

This cooker may look great but it is appalling and impractical in every other way. Cakes and pies do not cook evenly, the heating is pushed out of the sides and the top of both ovens so when you're using the hob to cook it is a very hot experience and dangerous. The cupboards each side of my cooker have been singed because of this. Also it is a nightmare to clean. You cannot keep the lights on to see what you are doing so have to use a torch and there are parts which would have to be… Read Full Review

“Poor Quality”

Written on: 30/12/2012 by Customes (1 review written)

In 5 years have had 3 heater elements, 3 fans, 2 valve blocks, 1 grill, and a number of circuit boards. The stoves engineer now tells me that when you are cooking and the ovens switch off themselves, and spoil your food, just disconnect the electrics for 30 minutes, it should start again,and not to worry this is normal. So spoil food and inconvienience is acceptable to Stoves. What a farce… Read Full Review

“Do Not Buy This Oven - Waste of money”

Written on: 20/10/2011 by annelovelace (1 review written)

We bought this oven 2 years ago as we liked the way it looked, ironically we had bought the exact same oven 5 years before that and had nothing but trouble with it. The first time we bought this oven the knobs peeled within a couple of months, we spoke to the manufacturers and they sent us replacement knobs twice as the same kept happening. In the end after several calls they sent out an engineer who altered the fan in the top oven/grill and the problem with the peeling knobs ceased. So 2… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2011

Love the looks of this double oven but wish I had read the reviews before parting with my cash. I am now onto my second pair of control knobs and they have melted too, heating to such a dangerous level that I almost blisted my fingers. The grill ignition sparks continuously and the oven kicks out so much heat to the outside that its a wonder any stays within the oven to cook the food… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/11/2010 by Christine Ann Whaite and Michael Holmes (1 review written)

We have had this oven for just two years. Like all the other reviewers we have had problems with melting control knobs and poor performance from the grill. Looks good but don't be fooled. Stoves no longer exist and the name has been bought by some mickey mouse outfit. Our previous Stoves cooker was brilliant with years of trouble free service. We will replace the whole lot with something more reliable. We will be consulting Trading Standards… Read Full Review

“You buy because it is a great name and looks so stylish. ”

Written on: 27/07/2010 by Gill B (1 review written)

You buy because it is a great name and looks so stylish.
It fails to deliver in any practical sense. Is dangerous due to the excessive heat it throws out and the constant re-igniting of the flame.
Don't touch - a total waste of money and I'm extremey disappointed… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2009 by carol bain (1 review written)

I have had this Oven for just over a year. The control knobs have melted with the heat and we have had numerous replacements. The fan has now broken down and it is no longer under guarantee. The flames from the grill lick out and have nearly burnt my eye brows on numerous occasions. Trading standards have been informed and I am awaiting their response. A poor piece of equipment. I would never recommend this oven to anyone… Read Full Review

“We have had the same problem as the previous reviewer...”

Written on: 06/10/2009

We have had the same problem as the previous reviewer with the control knobs being destroyed by the heat from the top oven. We have bought 2 replacement pairs but the same happens each time. They get too hot to touch therefore the oven design probably doesn't meet standards. Don't be fooled - the original Stoves company does not exist any more - the name badge was bought by a company called Glen Dimplex appliances. The rubber seals around the ovens also failed very early on. Having said… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/08/2009

I have owned the GDO700 for around 3 years now, and have had nothing but problems with it, the grill melts the controls as there is no guard (bad design) the fan broke down, the oven doors had to be realigned twice by an engineer. The display panel had been replaced twice as the thing is glued and the glue is useless. Now I am in the process of looking for another oven as the burner on the main oven is now not working. When I purchased this oven I thought I was buying a decent product, I would… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/02/2009

I have had the Stoves 700GDO fixed by stoves more times than I've cooked hot dinners and its not 5 years old yet!! and it is always the same problem you also wait 2 weeks between each fix. My Mother had a stoves gas cooker for 20 years never had a problem me I seem to have a dud and when you pay in the region of 800 quid you kind of expect it to work but the pcb board has a shelf life of 12 months and costs me 149.00 to fix every time thanks stoves!!!… Read Full Review
