I bought this model as my old one died. I must say this one is really rock-solid, and good looking. Ceramic plate gets hot veeery quickly which of course saves a lot of €€ :) The same goes for oven - gets hot in few seconds which is perfect. Front doors don't become hot, so it's perfect when you have small children (like I do). I don't regret decision to buy this Siemens, and highly recommend other who is thinking about buying fully electric product, then it's very good choice.
