Gas ovens built in and built under
Something that is getting more tricky to find these days is the good old gas oven. Electric ovens seem to have taken over as the format of choice for most manufacturers however there are still a few gems to be found.
New World make some excellent value gas models that are two cavities built in and built under but the top cavity is grill only and therefore not a double oven. Built in model is NW901G and this is available Satin steel or White. The built-under model, suitable for fitting under a worktop, is the NW701G again available in Satin steel or White.

Belling also make some lovely gas ovens - they do a single gas oven the BI60G or they make double ovens BI90G (built-in) and BI70G (built under). It is worth noting that the while both ovens are gas, the grill is electric in these models.

And finally to Stoves. Top of the range gas ovens from a quality brand, Stoves make some beautiful products in their range. Their gas built in offering is SGB900PS and the built under version is SGB700PS. Both extremely attractive and built to a very high standard but again both use an electric grill.

Here are some facts and figures on the relative differences with pros and cons of using both gas and electric cooking appliances.
Your choice of gas or electric cooker is likely to be influenced by your previous experience of cookers and your personal cooking preferences.
But there are significant differences in the costs of cooking with gas and electricity. If you use an electric cooker you’ll use fewer units of energy but, because electricity costs more than gas per unit, this will end up costing you more.
If you use your cooker’s oven, grill and hob for about one hour and 20 minutes a day for a year, an electric cooker will cost about £53 to run.
A gas cooker will only cost £16, giving you an annual saving of £37, or £222 over the life time of your cooker.
Polti Vaporetto Steam Cleaners - For a healthier life!
Polti have for many years produced steam cleaning products to help around the home. Not only are they great for cleaning dirt and grime but also for killing harmful allergens and mites that live in our carpets, mattresses and curtains etc.
All the dirt and grease that is detached is collected by the cloths used with all accessories or, in the Vaporetto Lecoaspira, by the vacuum function.
Steam offers great benefits and contributes to improving our health. How?
Cambridge University and Lyon Dermatological Hospital tested Vaporetto to dermine its effectiveness as compared to a vacuum cleaner for eliminating dust mites and scabies mites.
In Cambridge University two carpets and two mattresses containing live dust mites were compared. One carpet and one mattress were cleaned with an ordinary vacuum cleaner, the others with Vaporetto. Then the live dust mites on the samples were counted. Vaporetto had eliminated 97% of them from the carpet and 98% from the mattress, cutting allergens by 86%. The ordinary vacuum cleaner had eliminated only 57% of dust mites and 46% of allergens.
Lyon Dermatological Hospital tested Vaporetto’s effectiveness for decontamination of linens and rooms infested with scabies mites. The mites were killed by only five seconds of exposure to Vaporetto’s jet of steam at over 120°C.
These results leave no doubts: the high temperature (120°C) and high pressure (from 3 up to 5 bars) of Vaporetto and Vaporetto Lecoaspira not only drastically reduce the number of living dust mites but neutralise the allergens they produce, providing an extraordinary powerful decontaminating action.
Above results have been also confirmed by “British Allergy Foundation”, that awarded both Vaporetto and Vaporetto Lecoaspira as well as Lecologico vacuum cleaners with water filter its “Seal of Approval” for the effectiveness of these products in eliminating mites.

Miele goes Hybrid!
Hybrid cars may be the talk of the motor industry at the moment but a hybrid vacuum cleaner? Well that is something Miele have developed and brought to market.
The S4812 features an 1800w motor with special filtration bags called hygiene shutters that hold in more of the allergens that are vacuumed up. It has some nice features such as electronic suction power controls and an overheating indicator but what sets this vacuum apart from the rest is it has an on board Li-Ion battery that allows this cleaner to be used cordless. Really handy when vacuuming the stairs or the car - no need to reach for the extension lead and trip over the wires.
Not sure if other manufactures will follow suit to develop their own version of the hybrid cleaner but it will be an extremely interesting experiment to see how successful the format is.
Is Internet Shopping Killing Off the High Street?
As more big names reduce their presence on the High Street and some disappear altogether, we ask is Internet shopping really killing the High Street - or is the High Street killing itself?
I am constantly astounded at the lack of merchandising skills, poor customer service and 'head in the sand' mentality of High Street retailers. They want us to enter their less than attractive shops and be served by less than helpful people and then expect us all to actually spend our hard earnt money with them. Of course there are also many retailers that are excellent operators and strangely enough you don't hear of them closing down, do you?
Internet and retail are a partnership. Without retail there could be no Internet. Where could you go to actually see the products? How would you know what your washing machine or tumble dryer would actually look like? How would your new DAB radio sound without listening to it first? I think retailers are quick to find an easy blame source for their woes rather than being pro-active to what is going on around them. If they believe Internet is killing their business, what is their own Internet site like? You can be sure it will be information driven rather than sales driven and be more about 'who we are' than 'what we can do for you'
Internet allows customers choice and value that they simply can't find in many retailers - customers looking for big brands such as Neff, Siemens, Bosch and Elica can view the whole range rather than only be shown the cheapest one by a salesperson more concerned about their commission than finding the customer what they really want. Others such as Luxair, White Knight and Belling wouldn't get a fair representation on the sales floor but are embraced on the Internet.
I agree that times are tough out there but all the more reason to do more for the customer to provide more service, more choice and more value.
Science fiction or fact? Robots to clean your house..!
Many a low budget science fiction film has long held the presumption that in the future we will all own a robot and it will do all the cleaning in our homes for us. Madness? Well not really...
i-robot have long been in the business of producing robotic machines to assist with cleaning processes. They started out with a robotic swimming pool cleaner in the States and have progressed their idea from there to the domestic cleaning machines we see today.
Roomba is a robotic vacuum cleaner that you simply charge up, switch on and leave to its own devices to clean your carpets and hard floors with ease. It moves itself around your floors cleaning as it goes, avoiding obstructions and 'learning' the layout of your floor to ensure the whole area is covered. It has what they call 'cliff sensors' to avoid falling downstairs from the top step and has bumpers to gently sense where walls etc are so as not to mark them.
Roomba is easy to clean as well, the brushes and dust storage box remove easily and even better reassembly is straightforward too. Perfect for everyday cleaning, particularly on hard floors where dust is a constant frustration (especially if you own pets) although beware what your pets get up to when Roomba is around - check out this clip on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQ-jv8g1YVI

The Scooba is i-robot's answer to take the strain out of washing hard floors - it scrubs, washes and dries the floor as it goes leaving a great result behind it. A superb way to keep floors looking sparkly clean and shiny.
