I need a new cooker, I have decided on gas as I like the gas hobs and I believe it is like 10x cheaper to run gas than electric.

I can put in 50, 55 or 60 cm cooker.

Is the build quality better on the 55 or 60cm cookers?

There is not much choice at 50cm range, apart from a hotpoint ultima - are these any good?

They are all simple technology an insulated steel box, a burner with a flame failure device and a thermostat. The hobs are basic with a spark ignition and the grills are sometimes a double oven feature. Read the reviews carefully as loads are continental built cheap sh*t.

Build quality is nothing to do with size, some manufacturers are better than others.

Go for 600mm if you have the space as it makes the hob less crowded and you can get a bigger joint/nut roast in the oven. Have a look at leisure cp (google) for some well made cheapish ovens.
