    Need a new Cooker, FridgeFreezer and Shower!

    They say these things come in threes. The Fridge Freezers been on it's last legs for a while, the electric shower died just before we went on holiday, and we returned yesterday to find that the gas cooker doesn't cook (I think it's just the thermostat bit Mrs Mike has been after a new cooker for a while and his is her best excuse yet - I wouldn't mind but I do most of the cooking!)

    Anyway, I need to replace all three and was wondering if anybody could suggest which brands to go for / avoid. I was expecting to spend around £100 on the shower, and probably between £300-£500 on each of the cooker and fridge freezer.

    Shower - basic electric shower should do.

    Cooker - Gas, 600mm width. Not too bothered about double oven, but definitely a separate grill.

    Fridge Freezer - Cannot be more than 750mm wide so unfortunately cannot get one of those fancy big American ones, but needs to be quite big.

    We're probably going to go and have a look around the big Currys tomorrow to get some ideas before hopefully buying cheaper on the internet, but like I said, it would be nice to know which barnds stand out. Also if anybody knows of any good online stores to look at then that would be much appreciated.

    Cheers all!

    My shower died as well, I bought an Aquatronic from Wickes, they are actually Wickes branded 'Triton' showers... good value and much cheaper.

    How about apollo 2000 they have on line deals. x

    You don't say if you want white or a different finish?

    I'd recommend a Mira or Triton shower

    Thanks for the replies, can I just apologise for any typos, I said things come in three's, but I think my keyboard might be on it's way out aswell, it seems to keep missing keypresses, although it could just be the 8 hour drive home yesterday!

    It's actually an Aquatronic one that's jus died, but I'll certainly consider another one. I remember now seeing the Triton label inside when I had to retile last year.

    I'd imagine we'll go for white or silver finish. I saw an LG fridge freezer last night that looked quite good, so I'm glad that you like yours. Cheers for the links, I forgot about that site. I guess I'm more used to searching for more interesting things!

    Any other thoughts on brands to go for or avoid like the plague?

    OK, we've made our purchases now, so I hope they're good enough! They should be here this week.

    Cooker - Cannon Chesterfield (Dixons £380 + £65 to install and remove old one)
    Fridge Freezer - Hotpoint FF40P (70cm wide seems to make a lot of difference, it's a shame there aren't many more this size really) Dixons again £330 - could be slightly cheaper elsewhere, but less hassle to get both delivered together.

    Shower - Triton something or other from Screwfix for about £60

    Thanks for all the help, rep has been left, apart from Den38 as I've recently left you some for something else abd it won't let me - I'll try to remember to leave you some at a later date.
