I rushed into this purchase as I was in need of a cooker and this was the only make and model with next to no lead time. I now see why and wish I had spent the time researching before spending so much money. They have their own heat setting system. I don't understand the need to recreate a perfectly functional gas mark/oC/oF system?! What's worse is that the numbers on the settings are so close and the cheap plastic dial is quite lose, so it may look as though it's on one setting and be on another. I suppose I will have to kiss goodbye to my love of baking as it will quite honestly be a disaster with this cooker. The gas ignition on one of the hobs doesn't work so I will be back in touch as it's under warranty. I'm hopeful that it's enough to rid myself of this Zanussi nightmare and start over.
