    I obviously appreciate electrical safety is the most important issue with cookers and any other electrical appliance or fitting. But having recently investigated a cooker problem, I would caution others, unfamiliar with this kind of work, to take care when handling/removing the rear metal cover. Certainly with low-end cookers, the edges of these covers are razor sharp and it's all too easy to slice open a finger (as I've discovered!).

    Anything cut from coated steel sheet tends to be like that, they don't do anything to the edges after shearing. Computer cases are another one where some of the edges are razor sharp. Don't ask me how I know! :)

    I think on the better quality appliances they have the decency to put a lip around the edges so they're not quite so lethal!
