Using Our Website

We try to keep browsing within our web site as simple as possible. However, with the large quantity of products we offer and the range of manufacturers, size, colour , fuel type etc. you do need to be sure that any selection matches what you want.

Use the filters on the left-hand side of our catalogue pages to narrow your options and select from the listed results. The result can be sorted by price or manufacturer. We may top the page with some current special offers that may match your requirements.

Once you have found what you are looking for we ask you double check a few vital points. Is it the correct size? The correct colour? The correct gas or spin speed? If you are purchasing built in appliances we strongly recommend you double check the dimensions and that it is suitable to fit in your kitchen space to avoid disappointment. Please ensure you read out notes on built in appliances before you order.

When you are sure you have found the product you wish to purchase you should add it to your shopping basket using the highlighted button. Here we confirm the goods you have chosen. You can now make any changes by returning to our online showroom and adding more products, delete any products no longer required or once you are happy with your basket contents continue through the checkout.
