What would make cooking easier for you?

Our independent research on cookers can help you make an informed choice of what cooking appliance to buy.

  1. Identify the features found on cooking appliances for your needs and situation at home.
  2. Ask retailers which products have the features you need
  3. Be prepared to compromise.

The compromises that you may need to make will depend on:

Your needs

  • How much can you see?
  • Can you easily turn knobs or press buttons?
  • Do you remember things easily?
  • Will your future needs be different?

The practicalities

  • How much can you afford to spend?
  • What space is available in the kitchen?
  • Who else uses the kitchen?
