Style And Design
The Classic 90DFT is cleverly designed to fit into many environments well and be a truly versatile design. As the title suggests it is a classic design and some of the colour finishes would look very at home in a more classic style kitchen or even a retro style kitchen. The chrome finish that is available looks a lot more modern and would fit nicely into any modern kitchen.
The colour finishes are broken down into a two tone design with a black hob and bottom to the cooker with the main colour on the oven doors, this is a nice quirky touch and makes these range cookers stand out a bit from the usual chrome or black models.
The controls are robust and strong but well defined to look modern and well made.
The colours that are available are chrome, white, red, cream, black and wild berry! This is a lot of finishes for one model which is great. It means if the feature set is for you then there will also be a finish to suit.
The list of features is long and comprehensive. Have a read through and see if they line up to your needs. If you like the look of the model then click through to Amazon to have a look at the prices and buy your new cooker!
The Gas Hob
The hob is a very nice quality gas hob with five burners. It is built to last and with stand daily use for many years of cooking for a large family. The pan stands are cast iron which will take any knocks you throw at it. The five hobs are ample for most home chefs, there is a powerful wok burner kicking out 3.5kw of heat followed by one large burner at 3kw, two medium sized burners of 2.0kw and a small burner at 1kw. You have to be catering for quite a lot of people to need more capacity than this, so this hob offers a good balance between cooking capacity and size of the cooker. The flame ignition is automatic with a push button electric lighter.
This thirty five litre electric grill is a good variable heat grill with a dual circuit. It works well as a conventional grill and also doubles up nicely to keep food warm whilst dishing up. The extra space is handy if you get you timings wrong in the oven as you won’t end up with one cold bit if food!
The Left Oven
This is the wider of the two fan ovens and offers plenty of space with a 62 litre capacity. The space is used up with two shelves that are moveable and will take some big pans. The A energy rated oven has an easy to clean enamel finish to avoid lengthy cleans and has a good light so that you can monitor your food as it is being cooked. This oven is controlled with a programmable LED timer that also has a defrost function. This is a very practical size oven for every day use

The tall oven is very versatile with three removable shelves that can be placed in twenty five different positions. If you are cooking a meal with a lot of courses or components this is a really good oven as it can hold many different trays of food and combined with the main oven offers masses of cooking space.

For most families this is more than enough and will cover every eventuality. The 91 litre capacity oven is also A rated for energy efficiency.
