  1. Hi Anonymous,

    Are you referring to a particular model or company? There are 5 different brands on this list and at four different retailers which we have selected due to them currently offering the best prices on that product.

    If you can let me know which cooker(s) in particular you feel are of poor quality, I can look over the customer reviews.

  2. Hi Lianne,

    Thanks for bringing this up. I hadn’t heard about this before so spent some time reading around. Seems that during a self clean there are additional fumes that birds are much more sensitive too than us. With yours not having a self clean cycle it shouldn’t heat up to the same temperature and cause the same fumes. I wouldn’t however want to confirm either way when a beloved pet is involved.

    If you haven’t already I would suggest checking with the manufacturer to see if they can shed any light on the situation.

  3. You may just want to find an adjustable one like this over on Amazon. Hope this helps.

  4. Thanks for pointing this out Pat. Have updated it again. Unfortunately the prices seem to fluctuate a lot throughout the year.

  5. Hi Rita, I have found some images from behind and side on. There is a relatively flat back but there is a box for the plug low down on the oven. It doesn’t look like it sticks out and will cause a problem but is very much borderline.

    Here is the view from behind so you can see what I am talking about: https://www.cookerbase.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/hotpoint_hd5g00ccw_wh_08_l-back-view.jpg

    This is the view from the side so you can see how close the box is to causing an obstruction: https://www.cookerbase.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/hotpoint_hd5g00ccw_wh_07_l-side-view.jpg
