essential especially at Christmas!”
This is a really useful extra shelf for my two-shelf oven.....but I also found it great in my fridge at Christmas for all the extra food!

this was invaluable over the festive season giving an extra shelf in the oven. as with another reviewer i removed the plastic coating very easily as it seemed to smell, cam off really easily and the product is still effective.

worth every penny”
by catherine bamber
I bought this the first time it was in the catalogue, and I must admit I baulked at the price a little! however it has been worth every penny, and I have probably got my money back several times over in the electricity I've saved by only needing to use one oven. It is such a simple, effective idea.

Brilliant idea but.....”
by Mrs Hibbert
.......despite not putting it in an oven higher than 200°C (the instructions say it will go in an oven up to 230°C), the rubbery bits have started to disintegrate. That's my only reason for not giving it 5 stars.

After trying to cook roasts in a smaller oven and running out of room this is the perfect solution. Although I have to agree with the above poster, I had to cut the plastic bits off the bottom as it was making a weird smell in the oven, Really great addition to the oven though, very useful.

Great oven expansion”
by Alex Rees
Having read the mixed reviews for this shelf I decided to take the plunge and purchase one and I haven't been disappointed. The first time I used it there was an unpleasant smell coming from the oven. So I have simply cut the rubbery feet off with a sharp knife (which was very easy). I can't really see why they were there in the first place. Now it doesn't matter what type of oven I use there is no smell and it works fine. It is a great tool for saving the amount of time that the oven needs to be on as I can get more baking trays in at a time.

Great for Christmas!”
Got this for a Christmas present and it was fantastic! Does exactly what it was supposed to do! My oven is nice and wide, so no problems there. My oven is an electric fan oven, so again no problems. My only 'niggle' would be that the shelf sits quite high on its little legs, which made all my other shelves have to go right to the top of my oven. A small price to pay, to have an extra shelf, though!

Great solution but flawed”
I have had one of these for a little while and find it makes my single oven space go a lot further. Only problem is that the white base rods are degrading into powder, which is not ideal and will probably shorten the life of the product.

Panic --Blue smoke from oven”
by Mrs Judith Fisher
Measured my gas oven carefully and double checked that the shelf was suitable for gas. BUT on first use I smelt burning in the oven and discovered that the rear of the shelf was in close proximity to the gas flame. This had heated the bars and they were emitting fumes. The chrome had burnt off. My husband was not amused as a retired fire officer. NOT suitable for gas ovens.

The shelf fits perfectly in my fan oven, just the job, I wish I had this at Christmas as it would have solved a big space problem. Well done Lakeland

Brilliant extra shelf to house my portable TV in the spare bedroom with enough room for a DVD player underneath. It means I can watch my favourite DVDs whilst ironing without trailing wires and balancing acts! Looks really trendy too! Excellent.

Was really excited to get this home, so disappointed that such a great idea wasn't as perfect as it should have been. I live in Kuwait where we all have huge gas ovens...with just one shelf. Although there is plenty of room for it and it does not come into contact with the flame at the base of the oven, the rubber 'feet' have all cracked and are ready to peel off any day.

Rectangular one needed!”
by Nicky Huskinson
Like others have said, it's too deep for my gas oven and would sit in the flame. I'm going to have to get round to going to Solihull again to take it back. Hope it doesn't matter that I ripped the packaging! Fantastic idea though. Please please produce one that's not as deep so that those of us with gas ovens can have one too.

This item is wonderful and has increased the cooking capacity of my oven. I have a goose cooking now and this has enabled me to also cook a crumble at the bottom of the oven. The package clearly states that it is unsuitable for ovens with bottom heat and it is a simple matter to measure your oven prior to purchase A must have in my opinion

Not for gas ovens”
by Mrs Hartley
Having just bought this oven shelf at one of your shops, I now find it won't fit in my gas oven because of the gas jets at the back. I feel you must make customers aware of this in your catalogue.

Oven Shelf - not for gas ovens”
by Mrs Church
I was very disappointed and I'm not sure that this product is suitable for any gas ovens. Although I checked the measurements and have a big range cooker the back of the shelf went over the flame. Even if it had been narrower there is no upturn on the back of the shelf stopping cooking trays from falling down onto the flame as the exisiting shelves have. I would imagine it would be great for electric ovens though.

Check the depth of your oven as well as the width”
I recently bought this product, and was really looking forward to using it (I have sometimes put extra trays on the bottom of the oven when making holiday dinners, so thought it would be extremely useful -- 2 shelves is sometimes not enough). Unfortunately, while the shelf fits just fine in terms of width, with plenty of room to spare, there is a shield in the back of my oven (shielding the food/etc from the open flame) which prevents it from lying flat on the bottom of the oven. So I won't be able to use it after all. I would definitely recommend looking INSIDE your oven to make sure there is nothing that will keep the shelf from fitting before you order it. In my case the shelf seems like an useful product and I will keep it in the back of the closet getting dusty until we do a kitchen remodel with a bigger oven. I'll have to figure out something else in the meantime...

I had misplaced my second oven shelf and therefore could only cook one thing at a time. However, since purchasing a 'add a shelf', I am now able to cook two items at a time and this is perfect! No more burnt food as I used to use the base of the oven as a shelf!
Published 23 08 2009
A perfect item, just what I needed. The only doubt I have about it is that I have a gas oven and the shelf sits over the flame. I think a rectangular one would of been better for me. Will it cause any problem? I take it out when it is not in use so then I have to find somewhere to store it.

Oven add a shelf GREAT”
Like the other reviewers, just what I have been looking for! I can cook more dishes in the oven and great to keep plates warm. Also useful as a stand to use outside the oven to put hot roasting tins on!!
