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.
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.

$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.
