Possible sources of cheap kitchen appliances (we need an oven & hob)



We already have a fridge.



We have an oven! It is sitting in the Workshop waiting to be installed.


Something good, with a big glass door. We want to see the yummy stuff as it cooks. Bread, crumbles, flapjacks, pizzas, all recipes to be well documented in the wiki.

A bad oven can seriously impede caek baek, and can waste a lot of heat.

Double or single ?

  • I'd suggest single, because as far as I can tell you just end up with two small ovens that you can't fit anything big into. But it depends whether we're getting a freestanding one, I guess. Any more thoughts?

We won this EOU 5330 W electrolux oven & EHP 6602 K hob, not single and not as shiny as the Neff hob but better than it looks in that picture ; and only a fiver so we can chuck it out when we find something better.


We won this for £20 in an auction, which is a decent hob. We need to determine whether it should be used instead of the cooker hob.

  • There's no special reason to use the electrolux hob - no controls integrated or anything, and the Neff hob has no knobs to capture dirt. But there's also the possibility of fitting both - would be useful for cooking larger meals, and wouldn't really affect the use as a worktop when not in use.
    • I think 8 hobs is overkill for any purpose we will realistically have. This hob is nicer, but if we are keeping the other one then the knobs will be there anyway - can't see that it is reasonable to fit both. Can the hob on the elecrtolux be separated from the oven? If not I think it would be best to keep this one in a box until we get a modern oven. Robert 08:16, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
    • Yes, the electrolux hob is completely separate from the oven and probably interchangeable with the Neff in terms of worktop cutout.
      • I would be in favor of just scrapping the electrolux then, assuming there is no technical justification for using it over the Neff. Robert 20:08, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
Model T1722 W0
Surface Black Ceran glass-ceramic
Dimensions 575mm (width) x 505mm (depth)
Control Touch with residual heat indicators

Electronic boil start control

Back left 0.75/2.2kWh - 12/21cm (dual)
Back right 1.2kWh - 14.5cm
Front left 1.2kWh - 14.5cm
Front right 2.0kWh - 18cm


We're currently thinking of just a counter to turn the kitchen into a C shape. We could then add something like Noisebridge's mosaic.


The auction also got us over 200 beer and other glasses. I propose we put 50 or so in the space and put the rest on sale to members & visitors at 50p each. If this is successful it will pay for the cookers ! It may be possible to etch them with the laser.

Better ideas are welcome.
