Samsung PKG100

The Samsung PKG100 is a beautifully versatile and practical oven and hob combination.

The PKG100 is a built-in electric oven and hob, both of which are extremely well engineered. The oven itself has a massive 65 litre capacity, which is more than ample to fit the needs of a large family. The depth, height and width mean that large roasts or several items can be cooked at once with no problem.

Moreover, the Samsung unit can cook with conventional and fan assisted heat, and several combinations of both, giving plenty of choice for how food can be cooked. For instance, it can pump heat solely from the base to cook a pizza to perfection. The oven also has a full surface grill in the top of the cavity, which also has several heating options.

The controls for all of this are very simple to master, and the control dials themselves are easy to read and turn. The hob has four heat pads, which heat up very quickly and evenly, and are also very simple to control. The hob is designed with safety in mind, as it lets you know when the pads are still hot, even when turned off, and the controls have a child lock for added protection for the family.

Both the hob and the oven are easy to clean, with specially designed wipe down surfaces that only require warm soapy water to remove grease and spillages. Both the oven and hob are rated as highly energy efficient as well, meaning the bills will not be through the roof. The only issue with the PKG100 is that it requires an electrician to hardwire the units when it is being installed. But besides this small inconvenience, the Samsung is tough to fault. It is a great appliance, which should make cooking a lot easier and a lot quicker.
