Boss price shame guarantee isn't labour included. Hot from me.

Parts only guarantee's force you to use the manufacturer's service agents who often have excessive labour charges. Not knocking the deal but the 10 year parts only guarantee is not really a plus point.

Surprised if it's not a standard gas bayonet and a 3 pin plug - in which case, why pay someone for less than a minute's task?

Cooker won't be supplied with the hose to connect to the gas supply, they cost around £15 and then you should also get an anchor kit, if you then balls up installing it then your house could go on fire or you might damage the cooker. If you're happy to do this kind of task yourself then maybe, but in my mind £70 to pay someone from the manufacturer to do it in the event of problems is worth it especially if you have any problems like we did (detailed below).

The issue we did have with this cooker when it was installed was that every so often in the first week the oven burners would simply go out. We called Hotpoint out and we were told our gas pressure was "too high" and as a result it kept making the oven burners go out as they are more "efficient" and therefore a high gas pressure doesn't suit them. At first Hotpoint blamed our gas supply for being "wrong" despite it being well within the UK limits and got very difficult along with Tesco about how they'd resolve the situation, in the end Transco came out and they were able to reduce the pressure for us by fitting a new regulator valve on the meter although they were reluctant to do this as it was within spec. I'm not sure what would have happened if it wasn't resolved this way and when speaking to Hotpoint about this they were finding a small number of customers having the same problem and there was no fix for the problem.

Anyway, good deal for this cooker, I have the exact same model myself that I got 9 months ago for about £350 and about £60 of Tesco vouchers (which we turned into £240 of day out vouchers!). Also worth noting if Hotpoint call you up after delivery trying to give you the hard sell on an extended warranty and that if you have told Tesco to not share your details then if you complain to Tesco you might get a £20 gift voucher like we did for the hassle.

My assumption was you'd already have an existing cooker. If not, then you're correct, you'd have to factor in a bayonet hose (sheesh!)
You'd also have to factor in the provision of a gas supply pipe, and a 13A socket - if one wasn't there.
Equally, you might have to build an extension to house a kitchen, if you don't already have one.
Finally, yes, you might also have to buy or rent some accomodation too. If you currently live with your mum.

So you would reuse the hose? Not a great move in my opinion. But then, if you're that cheap why buy a cooker when you could get a second hand one from ebay or the dump. Jeez.

The new cooker and whole installation should also be checked for leaks whenever a new appliance is installed. A proper gas installation including tests before and after fitting should take between 40 and 60 minutes. The fitting on the wall also has to comply with manufacturers recommendations in terms of location so as to ensure the hose hangs in the correct way, not kinked.
Like paying a designer for a logo, or a musician for a song. You are paying for their experience, expertise and their abilities. Not just to plug a hose in.

Meh. It's not rocket science. Soapy water to check for leaks, PTFE as a solution in the extremely unlikely event the ISO approved Safety bayonet fitting fails.
If you're the sort that needs to employ a handyman for the smallest of tasks, so be it.
If you think a rubber gas hose "wears out", so be it.

after having a few hotpoint fridge freezers develop faults Peery much straight away I stay well clear of them. their products are inferior and their customer service rubbish.

I have this one, i didn't really want to get a Hotpoint but its the only double oven that fit the space in my kitchen. Exactly the same thing happens with the oven and hobs, the light goes out, then a few seconds later it cuts the gas off. A lot of people seem to have this problem so my guess is it's bad design and they're trying to cover it up using the 'its more efficient' crap... it's usual rubbish and lies from hotpoint/indesit. If anyone's looking at buying this I'd stay well clear.

Good price.
Customer service is shocking if it goes wrong though.

Hmm. Just got one of these fitted about a month ago and have experienced the top oven light had gone out after a few minutes of cooking a couple of times. Now I've read these comments I'll see how it goes and let you know.
