‘Cooker with chrome trim will ruin my gold-plated kitchen’ 

But it then transpired that this model was no longer available – back to square one.   You spotted a Rangemaster Classic Deluxe at another retailer, Capital Appliance Centre, for £1,800 and thought this would fit the bill.

It is dark green, has the right dimensions, and crucially, a gold trim. There was just one problem: your vouchers were only valid at Currys. 

Currys didn’t take long to decide that you should have this cooker, and agreed to convert the vouchers into cash, allowing you to buy it.

Currys has gone above and beyond on this occasion, and you now have a rather fabulous new addition to your golden kitchen. I hope you enjoy it.
