Advantages:

For those of you who have limited space available in your kitchen and don’t want built-in units, slot-in cookers provide the most economic solution. These stylish freestanding designs are ideal if you are looking for:

  • extra flexibility
  • easy installation
  • affordable investment

Disadvantages:

The downside of a slot-in appliance is that it is more on display compared with other integrated designs which are hidden into the room seamlessly.

integratedIntegrated Ovens

Advantages:

If you are looking for a sleek and stylish cooker, integrated ovens are proving to be more and more popular with homeowners. The built-in design of integrated ovens means appliances can be installed behind cupboard doors in your kitchen, ensuring a neater appearance and providing more room to get creative! An additional advantage of having built-in ovens and hobs is that it is significantly easier to mix and match electricity and gas supplies.

Disadvantages:

The major disadvantage of integrated ovens is that once they’re put in position they’re difficult to remove, making tasks such as cleaning or fixing leaks rather challenging.
