Cooker width (cm)
Four-ring freestanding cookers come in four standard widths, 50cm, 55cm and 60cm. Actual measurements show that some cookers are about 5mm wider, but should still fit into standard sized gaps. The measurement given here is the standard width of the cooker, rather than the exact width measurement.
Cookers can come with catayltic liners that absorb splashes, pyrolytic programs that burn of food spills at very high temperatures or conventional linings that need to be cleaned manually
Cookers usually come in more than one colour, so if you're looking for a black oven but we only have the stainless steel, check with the manufacturer.
