Rubbish and will never buy another
The oven has never cooked evenly. The bottom is burnt and the top is white. Even when fan forced. After 2.5 years the ignition for the main burner is broken
The top burners are great. The oven it takes hours to cook a roast. Worst oven I have ever used. They went through a bottle of gas very quickly. There must be a problem somewhere. You also havent got separate knobs for the grill and the oven. They are both on the same switch and there is no book to help you.
Gets the job done. It's a small oven - have had to re arrange shelving to cook multiple cakes etc and even then was only able to cook two tins at a time. Oven does cook a little unevenly but able to get away with it. Gas stove top is fantastic. Again small but much prefer gas over electric.
It is ok for small family
Eventhough it have many options to choose but I still dont really understand each option like under/above grills, with/without fan. Last time when I grilled a whole chicken, it made my house full of smoke even I used the fan+grill option. So it is ok with small cupcake or saussage
Its a serviceable unit
I have been using my Emilia stove with dual fuel for the last year. What I like about the stove is: The electric oven which heats up quickly and cooks well. I like the stainless steel frame. Its easy to clean. What I am not as keen on are that the gas burners on the stove top are not as adjustable heat wise as I have been used to. (And I have always loved cooking with gas!) Each burner is a different size and I think - intensity of flame - I haven't measured it!, but I find that I often have to move saucepans etc to different burners to ...lessen the temperature rather than leaving it on one burner and adjusting it right down or right up. There is movement on each burner, but not a great deal. Also, there is a timer on the stove, but the volume is so low (and it can't be adjusted. I contacted company to check) that there is not much point using it. Overall though, it is a serviceable unit.
Worked well enough, until........
Purchased our Emilia Oven 2 years and 1 month ago and was happy enough with it until the oven element just died. Warranty is 2 years, so the cynic in me thinks that the designing engineers are to be congratulated for their precision. $210 later the problem has been rectified by a local tech,who has told us he thinks the thermostat isn't working properly. If that goes, then it's almost like buying one oven for the price of two.
good oven, only stainless choice i could find for a small freestanding
I decided I would put a review on this site 2 years after using it to decide to buy it. Havent regretted. good little oven. easily performs as well as the previous white enamel westinghouse it replaced and has given my kitchen a real facelift. I would purchase the Dual Fuel model(gas top, electric bottom) again. oven works well with a nice even heat.
I think its a worthwhile upgrade to a kitchen on a budget. Sure its pricey for a 53/54cm size oven, but it looks good and performs well.
very bad service
I am a very unhappy customer for Emilia. this is the second time i write a review. Emilia did not allow the first one to print.i believe all you above ae not Emilia customer and write nice thing. i am waiting for refund of new cooker because oven and grill do not stop produce extrem bad smell. it could be poison.

$1464.90 EM534EI3 (latest release) Duel Cooker 53cm – Predecessor Simpson Nova Electric 53cm, 23 years. I had thought to renovate my kitchen for the sake of a 60cm upright stove, but common sense prevailed.
For a 2 person household I chose 2 NEW 9kg bottles, and I am yet to see how long they last ...on Auto setting. In my homework, LPG is a much more efficient than Natural Gas 29.5Mj/h; LPG uses less and burns hotter 25.5Mj/h. Note; Natural Gas pipelines are not underground on the Southside of Brisbane.
Cooks well. No problems.
This oven does everything you expect an oven to do, and nothing that you don't. It cooks well both on the stove top and in the oven itself. Be aware that the oven is actually electric, not gas, with gas for the burners on top. Installation of the gas requires a gas fitter, however the electric just plugs into a normal power point. Ignition of the gas is electronic, just press a button. Oven is fan forced with options to have heat from the top, bottom or both with or without the fan. It can be set up to use either mains natural gas or bottled gas (LPG).
Cooks well. Having electric for the oven and gas for the stove top is a good combination.
Doesn't have a clock or timer but that's a minor hassle only.
Great value and very reliable
We have owned this model for 5yrs plus and it is still going strong with everything working just as it did when new - this surprised me as I didn't think a cheap Italian stove would make it this long and be so reliable. The over is also a good performer being pretty consistent and effective.
Cheap, reliable, good for small spaces
Excellent well built and attractive - picks up the kitchen (and shows up the legacy white appliances). Very happy with purchase.
Modern styling shiny easy on eyes
Stainless is easy to clean while the chrome burner surrounds do attract and bake on splashes. Still it is a stove.
I was a little dubious about buying a cheap import gas stove.
After I installed the stove (I'm a licensed gas fitter) we noticed markings on the stainless steel bottom cover and the starting of rust on the inside base of the unit.
Then after a month the ignition stopped working.
So I called up on the warranty, and within 2 days the part was replaced and the damaged (rusted parts) ordered.
2 weeks later we has all the damaged parts replaced.
The stove has been excellent and we are very happy.
Stylish. Eazy to clean. Eazy to use. Excellent manufacturers warranty.
The fact that parts had started to rust. (we were told that this occurred durring shipping)
Questions & Answers
G'day, I have just bought an Emelia EMCER64 cook top. Only 2 of the 4 hotplates work. The 2 on the right do not light up or get warm although when they are switched off the display has the H flashing. The 2 hotplates on the left work with no problems.
Hi Steve - please call our customer service team on 1300 307 917 for assistance with this. Thank you
