    zero stock of anything that fits the gap virtually anywhere
    Difficult finding replacements for built in stuff if the old model ain't around. Took me weeks to replace a microwave a while ago.

      It's a free standing range cooker so the issue was find a range cooker that is 100cm wide, in stock with sensible oven sizes (Leisure for instance have very wide sides that make the ovens virtually unusable.

          Hell will freeze over before I use them again (plus currys give 7% cashback, ao is 1%).

          Also Mrs Eek wanted Red and AO don't have one - mind you no one has any range cookers as Covid has screwed up production - one company is quoting January (if you are lucky).
          Try RDO | Washing Machines | Dishwashers | Fridges | Ovens | Kitchen Design
          Not sure if they deliver near you, and you might not get cash back, but they are normally good on prices and delivery.
          And you can pick up the phone to talk to them, call in to collect, or just use their website.
          If that fails, what about John Lewis?

            It wasn't bad, but the TV series is still the definitive version for me.

              Try Mark's Electrical. I bought cooker hood, wine fridge and they were great. Speedy delivery, best price too.

                The issue is one of availability - the problem with the cooker has been obvious for weeks but there was no stock of anything Mrs Eek wants anywhere - so we were hoping the cooker would last until whatever is screwing up production is fixed.

                I've found one and it's ordered (see my complaint about a bug in Currys website above) just need to use other means to cook until the 15th when it will arrive and be installed.

                Now just working out if we should replace the cooker hood (which has always been tulip) at the same time.

                  Sunny for most of it but there's some very big black clouds out there at the moment.
