Thanks op, might get a couple for gifts
A friend gave me one of these that he got from Gearbest. I actually enjoy the challenge of flying it (yes it's possible). If it was easy it'd be dull..
No need to argue, the OP's on these Chinese deals are made to post them as part of their employment.

At least that's what I gather since they've never denied it on dozens of threads.

On second thoughts, may be different to the Amazon £12 one.

It is very common for single ovens and hobs like these to be installed in …It is very common for single ovens and hobs like these to be installed in the same kitchen workspace where the oven is fitted into a standard single oven base unit with the hob fitted into the kitchen worktop above it. We have a Beko single oven (different model, but same dimensions as this one) and induction hob (different make but same hob dimensions) fitted like that and these can be as well. In fact, apart from fitting above an oven, manufacturers warn you not to install a hob over any other kitchen appliance. Good luck if I've read your post correctly and you did mean that you are thinking of making a unit yourself. I couldn't do that easily and most people who 'DIY' their kitchens just buy a standard self-assembly flat-pack oven housing base unit for their oven and a worktop to fit over it and adjacent units. The worktop cut-out for the hob is not difficult to do using a drill and electric jigsaw while the assembly of the flat-pack unit involves more patience than carpentry skill. Assembling when no one else is in the house and closing all the windows is probably a good idea too unless you really don't care if family and neighbours hear you swear when something doesn't fit where the instructions say it should !


That's good to hear, thank you. I will have a look at the self-assembly work units, but I do enjoy a challenge I must say. I made myself a nice entertainment centre/computer desk all-in-one last year., and if I say so myself it looks pretty good. There are some things I wish were done better, but I had a window of time to do it in, so had to do the best I could with the time allowed... mainly because I had to disassemble my old computer desk and move a LOT of stuff around - if I had had to put stuff back, I would have ended up with only a few hours working each day at most. So I gave myself 2 days to do it in for the actual building of the unit, including stain and varnishing. It's not fancy, but it does what I wanted it to do. I have 3 moveable "units" or modules, All the same height and they form most of the base for holding up the desktop. The rest of the support is take care of with lengths of baton fitted to the wall, and the desktop screws down onto that. The 3 modules are different widths that fit some of my goodies that sit in that entertainment area, such as my servers/NAS's and games consoles. I wanted it like this so that if I wanted to move some stuff around I could. And thios way you don't even have to take stuff from the top of the desktop as long as you move them in the correct sequence so that you still have one unit at each "end" of the desktop. It works very well IMO, and have moved them a bunch of times now when I needed a change to fit with some re-adjusting of my networked devices for instance. I only used 12mm MDF 3* 2440mm sheets for the whole job, and had enough left over to make an additional unit, which is being added to the entertainment area soon... and also I am fixing some stuff that just isn't up to my standards. Mostly that it needs more staining and varnishing to look a little better, and add some more holes for cabling and such. On the desktop I have my main PC, ultra-widescreen monitor and so on... and the other side I have my 55 inch TV, modem/router and a couple of switched etc and it handles the weight very easily. I was a bit annoyed I didn't get to finish it properly to how I envisioned it, but it was my own time-frame that I was working to, and just couldn't afford to spend more time as I needed my OC back up and working, not to mention the things that did need to be on at the same time I was working, and had to work around like the servers, modem/router etc.
I plan things out very thoroughly before starting work.. measure twice cut once as the old saying goes.
Anyway, thank you for the confirmation, I shall have a bash as the cooker is very easily moved as I made sure I had enough cabling so it could be moved and cleaned thoroughly when I put that in... you know how bad cookers can get, lol. That will give me the freedom to measure at will and double check measurements and do test fittings while making it.

Sorry for the wall of text, and TLDR: thank you I shall give it a try

Are these easy enough to fit carpentry wise? I have been looking at these …Are these easy enough to fit carpentry wise? I have been looking at these kits for a while now, but always end up doubting my carpentry expertise, lol. Reason I ask is we have only room for a 60-65cm free standing oven, but from the plans it's hard to make out if you could actually use these as a bottom oven with the hob on top, with the required carpentry needed too and gaps I mean.. or is there some reason these can't be used like that?I know they have to have a frame for the oven to sit in, and gaps at rear for cabling and ventilation, also understand that the hob has to sit in a hole made for it, just can't seem to fidn out if they can be used one on top of the other with those things in mind is all. Even if I miss this deal am not worried, would just really like to know if they can be used like that, thanks

With code KT10 found on another kettle page which seems to be working price goes down to £35.99 for this stylish kettle!
Russell Hobbs terrible quality and poor customer service.
I wouldn't recommend this kettle. We have one but there is a design flaw.....the fine mesh that is supposed to stop limescale getting in your drink does act as a filter as you would expect.....but the problem is that the water (and limescale) flows over the top of the filter and through two gaps, then straight out of the spout and in to your drink. Obviously we descale the kettle regularly but there are still bits that circumvent the filter.

It is a nice looking kettle but only buy it if you like limescale in your tea or coffee.
It's got a VU innit!! Just like your old Technics!! Shame it's not stereo though.
Retro? I don't remember kettles looking like that when I were a lad.

There is a good video review which is quite honest. It is ideal for 1 good cup of coffee in a thermos type mug with lid so it stays warm. It was much appreciated this morning. I am sure you could put a teabag in the strainer and get a cup of tea. It is pretty quick.
As the review says do not overfill as it will spill out of the hole at the back. Also fill with the amount of water you require or it will just overflow the cup. I am very pleased with my buy.

For the gas fans, I should say I was brought up on gas; I didnt get to use an electric hob until I was in my mid 30's in a rural cottage with no gas. It was quite a shock how awful electric hobs are!!

I got to use induction in China; as above - a single ring portable of about 2KW; it was so much faster (and safer) than gas (especially the Chinese gas burners!!), that when I came back to the UK 6 months later, the first thing I did was rip out my electric hob and replace it with an induction hob, then try to persuade my boss at work to rip out the gas hobs and replace them with induction.
I even took in my 2KW portable, to show her how much faster it was; it was 3 times as fast at heating a 2 gallon pot of water than the huge commercial gas ring, and without all the wasted heat turning the kitchen into a sauna.

Thanks, my experience has been similarly inconsistent i have tried a few pans and like you say some don't get hot enough, we have some expensive copper bottomed ones that were superb on the old halogen hob. Will try some more like you suggested.

* I bought several, as the Pro cook fryer couldnt handle our over-powered induction hob - the non stick just peeled off after a month of use.
The alu with steel fryers took full power just to get hot enough to gently fry anything; with my older, "bare" solid stainless steel fryer from Lidl, I only needed 30-40% for the same heat (but it weighs a tonne and SWMBO doesnt like it).

Lidl do a non-stick alu with steel ring fryer that isnt too bad, the steel ring is several mm thick, but it still uses twice the power of the solid fryer, and the heat isnt even.
I have a similar Bosch oven which I got following a deal posted on here a few years ago. Very well built and highly recommended.
I use approx £12 ceramic 28" frying pans from Amazon, they work fantastically amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1 - easy to clean too. Also have a ceramic wok too.

Looks like a great little thing i could use for allotment, i currently use gas canisters or an electric kettle when my leisure battery is charged (although 2-3 kettle boils drains it)

Also could mean i could get rid of some wood before the allowed bonfire hours lol and boil my kettle at same time

i nearly bought it but then amazon recommended this one amazon.co.uk/Lix…R6/ £10.99 but there's a £2 off code if you buy 2 or more .... it seems the only difference is there's no grill option, ignore me OP is still the best you get the grill accessory too and it only costs £10.99 total where as the one amazon keeps recommending me you have to buy 2 to use the discount voucher

I used to have a similar looking one that burned unleaded petrol, could boil a big pot of water in 10 mins. Hugely cheaper to run than Camping Gaz. Great if your vehicle is petrol anyway.

a strong wind actually helps them burn better, and rain, well rain with any kind of wood fire is going to problematic to get going, but with the way these work once you get them going they will dry wood lower down in the chamber you can use inner bits of dry wood to get it going.

I have a couple of them, and they work fantastically well, if you set them up and use them correctly.

the correct way to load them is to use finger thick pieces and place them vertically in the chaamber, they want to be a length up to just under the top air holes.

then use some dry tinder material, feather sticks made using dry bits of split wood or even just a cotton wool ball dipped in some vaseline and chuck it on top, the flames will get pulled down through the wood and turn it in to charcoal whilst producing wood gas, that gets circulated and burnt.

No the jet boil is one trendy folk love. It's like the shoppers with Marks & Spencer bags shopping at Lidl.

& a jet boil costs about £70. I have a blast furnace...It much better than a crappy jet boil....Cost £4000.00 but that not the point. It's BETTER!
These may not be the best in the world but with some compressed wood pellets they work great & with wood they work well too.
