Probably wouldn’t have picked it but it’s the only one 55cm wide and either that or nothing. The door handles are too big we can’t open the door fully without taking it to pieces just to alter the trays. The solid tray is too big, heavy and unwieldy so we have dispensed with it. The controls are nut intuitive and the grill is awkward. No way to set the oven to switch on at a time. Seems to have been designed by someone who doesn’t cook. But getting used to it no choice.

Hello and thank you for your review and 4* score of your new cooker. It seems that some of the features have not met your expectations and we'd be happy to talk with you should you wish to reach out to our customer care team.
All of our cookers have 5 cooking positions within the cavity and the cooker door is designed to open wide enough to allow you full access to remove the shelves and trays from the cavity. With regards to the large meat pan, our customers tell us they appreciate the build quality of the various furniture that comes with our appliances, so it's unfortunate that we didn't meet your requirements in this regard.
This cooker does have a minute minder which will have an audio alarm when you have pre-set a cooking time, it's a great way to achieve consistency with cooking. The feature you mention is a 'fully programmable timer' which is present in other Zanussi appliances.
The research we undertake before we bring a product to market is extensive. We involve anyone from experienced cooks and chefs as well as those who are feeling inspired to cook and is across many different groups of people to ensure that we have a product which performs well and is easy to use. Again, we are disappointed this product doesn't meet your requirements and I'll ensure it gets passed to our design team for their perusal.
Thank you again for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on your new appliance.
