    Hi there,

    Probably off-topic, but I'm struggling to find out any information about Caple the company, or their products - reviews wise. We're approaching completion of our kitchen extension and are now in the position of picking appliances to put in it (yay!). The Caple 9200 looks like a great range for our needs, but we're hesitating due to the lack of impartial review information.

    Does anyone here have experience of Caple (or this cooker specifically)? Have tried all the usual review outlets to no avail...

    Cheers,
    Gary.

    I was a repair agent for Caple and Cuisina about 4 years ago they are not very good and Lofra avoid like the plague as well
    stick with Flavel/Leisure reasonably reliable kit

    Cheers for that. Guess Caple are *def* off the menu then. Saw Leisure and Flavel yesterday, looking good.

    Only thing now is the missus wants an induction hob, and looks like only Britannia do them, and my pockets suddenly got deeper...
