    Hi guys

    Need quick response for my question.

    I have an IP that requires a replacement of a gas cook top and oven.
    60mm Euromaid costs $998.00 to purchase but further costs to remove and install. The gas fitter recommended a Chef or Westinghouse which would be $1760 to remove the old one and dispose of it and install the new one.

    Any bad experience with Euromaid?

    it is a generic brand, not particular bad or good, as long as it has insurance, the manufacturer/ insurer will fix it if problems arise. if it is for your own home, I will not recommend it.

    We moved into a home with Euromaid oven - it was crap and when the clock broke, the whole oven died. Cost $400 to replace the clock, and the customer service was appalling. We ended up replacing it with a Fisher and Paykel oven and we love it.

    For IP. The gasfitter recommended Chef or Westinghouse but even with 5 year warranty, i will be paying $1,133 as opposed to $1800.

    As @JessicaP said, Euromaid is crap. Personaly, I'd go Westinghouse out of the 3 x options you've provided or make sure the extended warranty on the cheaper brands is likely to be honored for the next 5 years.

    Good guys have 20% off everything on their ebay shop online. Free delivery if you click and collect. You might be able to get a decent brand. I think the sale ends tomorrow

    They are all pretty much the same in my opinion! Can't see Euromaid being considerably inferior to the others.

    You have never had a Chef oven or stove then? I live in a shared house where the builder installed these abysmal appliances. I went halves with the owner to get rid of them. I hated them that much. Oven got replaced with a Westinghouse. Stove got replaced with a Blanco. The replacement appliances are brilliant! Both are secondhand too. Gumtree specials. Gotta love gumtree. :)

    I have a preference for mid range items. No point buying cheaper items if it's costs just as much to install it - costs you more in the long run.

    I tend to stick with Westinghouse and
    Bosch.

    I'm surprised by the negative comments about Euromaid. We have a washing machine and dryer and they have been fine for the three years we've had them. The dryer in particular is excellent and great value for money (it is a condenser dryer which is normally quite a bit more expensive in competing brands).
