$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

Know better, choose better.
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)
