Replacing quake damaged oven-opinions?

sarahj1, Mar 25, 1:21am
My St George double wall oven got damaged in the quake (fridge went for a walk into it!) Have been quoted over $3k to replace the broken door so it will be cheaper to replace the whole thing - have looked at Westinghouse and Electrolux - both a bit narrower inside than the St George unfortunately, but apparently all NZ ovens are "European" size now
Anyone have any experience with either of these brands - or any other you would recommend?

Hi.. I searched for an oven that had the former usually wide interior, rather than the narrow ovens often available now - which wouldn't fit a lot of my baking, roasting, etc.. tins, trays, dishes..

None on display anywhere, so asked if one could be ordered, and, through Smith's City,purchased a Westinghouse (a Fisher and Paykel brand) wall oven..

A double wall oven is here:

:-) Westinghouse is an Electrosux brand :-)
