These days it’s quite hard to find a cooker with an eye-level grill. Most modern cookers have the grill built into the inside of the oven, so you have to bend down to check on what you’re grilling.
This isn’t ideal for people with back problems, and it makes it harder to keep an eye on what’s under the grill.
This begs the question, is it possible to buy a cooker with an eye-level grill in the UK?
Yes, you can buy a cooker with an eye-level grill. However, at the time of writing it’s only possible to buy a gas cooker with this feature, not an electric cooker.
After researching the market, we found a few models of electric cooker with an eye-level (or “high-level”) grill, but they aren’t available for sale at the time of writing and appear to have been discontinued. These models are:
- New World NW 50HLGE
- New World NW 55HLGE
- Hotpoint HL500EW
If you really want an electric cooker with an eye-level grill, you might be able to buy one second hand. Gumtree is a good place to look.
Alternatively, see this list of gas cookers with an eye-level grill.
