Electric cooker recommendation in the UK

My electric cooker, after 27 years, has finally died and I think it's time to replace it.  I live in a fairly remote spot and am not connected to mains gas.  I have thought about going down the bottled gas route but not entirely sure I want the hassle of that - although it would be nice to have a gas hob for using the wok and suchlike.

So, my question is do any folks on here have any recommendations on currently available cookers that have ovens which work well for baking bread?  Or, conversely, are there any models that don't bake well and which I should avoid? 

This is a very broad question I know but any views, suggestions etc would be most welcome.  As you will appreciate from the age of my failed appliance, I'm not really up to speed with the cooker market place just now.

Best wishes from Wales.

I have a cooker made by Canon. It has a full fan oven and is great for baking bread and all baking in fact. It has a temperature range 80-230C (with or without fan) with control in 5C increments. I think it does a great job all round.

Thanks, Michael.  Which model of Canon cooker do you have?

Cheers
