Lots of design faults
The brand new stove has a lot of problems with gas jet ignition and often I have to use a gas gun. This was one of the reasons we got rid of our old Chef expecting a new Westinghouse would not give any problems. I also can't understand why the very front gas jet on the RHS is the smallest as most cooking needs a large jet at the front. So I have to lean over this small jet to stir the contents of saucepans at the back. The Chef had larger jets at the front and smaller at the rear - this is definitely a backward step. Not happy!
Not user friendly
Unfortunately there isn't much choice in 60cm upright stoves. I settled for this all-gas Westinghouse model which has just recently come onto the market. I had hoped that some problems noted in reviews of earlier models would have been rectified but it seems not. All the control knobs get uncomfortably hot when the oven is in use and the burners are more difficult to light than my old Chef that it replaced. In fact I often use a gas gun instead of the ignition button because it's easier. Not right for a brand new stove. The installer could...n't get the wok burner to stay lit so we've had a service call already - not a promising start. At least they came out promptly. Hopefully I'll get used to it and warm to it a bit more but the hot knob issue is a design fault that should have been rectified. Who tests these things?
