Thanks for replying. I love the Élan but dh feels it's too country for our kitchen.. I find the brouchure rather confusing, it's hard to compare models, apart from cosmetically. Would love to talk to someone who uses one already of there is anyone out there?
we had the toledo (lidded one) with the gas hob - got rid of it, as i hated the gas hob part, also hate stainless steel appliances in general now as they mark so badly!!! live and learn!! I was forever cleaning it!
I have the classic 110.I have only had it a few weeks but i love it.Although i havn't used the griddle or plate warmer yet.Because the top is black it also doesn't show the dirt or oily marks like a white one.The only disadvantage i can see is that the vent at the back at the hob means that grease can spatter onto the wall behind and we need to tile not just on top of the worksurface but also all the way behind.
