Gas top with 5 drivers is excellent. However, oven door HINGES and seal replaced twice in 8 years I've owned it(1st time-within a year) $400 each time. Both times didn't last longer than a week. Lived with oven door not closing properly, but now, the escaping heat has burnt out oven setting buttons and clock, causing spark. Turned off its electricity and am buying new stove. Oh and SELF cleaning ? Haha
Great stove, very happy with it.
Love cooking on this gas stove, the oven cooks great, the only issue I have with this stove is the stainless steel top is soft and scratches easily, the cast iron trivet has a chip on it and the oven is a little loud. If you can live with this the stove/oven is fantastic.
Once again another BAD REVIEW
Do not buy this Brand at all - seals broken on oven door - grill doesn't work and now the oven fails to heat - blew safety switch on the house - called Arisit - absolutely useless customer service apparently under warranty (means nothing) keep being told a technician has been contacted (I haven't heard from one) called Arisit again (who seems annoyed to even have customers?) wouldn't listen to what I had to say (useless Warranties Receptionist) - so I had to ring Telefix (Adelaide) who apparently is their chosen Technician - put on hold as soon as the phone is answered (twice) firstly for 22 minutes (I hang up) second time I rang same again - Telefix Receptionist then proceeds to tell me - yes we are waiting on parts 1-2 days (wth - how do they know what parts - they haven't even looked at it yet?) she didn't even ask my name? I know it was just their standard fob off answer - I know I'm being lied to - geez - took my number and tells me they will ring me in a couple of days? - really? I ring Arisit AGAIN to be told - they will have to email Telefix as no parts have been ordered - surprise, surprise! Meanwhile...
November 7th 2017 Update: Arisit or Telefix - still getting the run a round
Still no word from Telefix to fix (under warranty) my Ariston oven - Arisit says parts have been sent 5 days ago yet a Telefix is awaiting parts? That's if you can get through to Telefix on the phone - straight away once phone is answered your placed on hold for 20 minutes or more? Arisit you need to get another repairer organised for your customers in Adelaide- this is ridiculous!
Same problems as others
The oven door doesn't close properly, wasting a lot of energy (ie money). We have had the stove about 7 years and the rubber seal on the door has broken twice. Needless to say, no interest from Ariston in replacing it free. And a new one cost $67 including GST and postage!! For a piece of shaped rubber that will likely break again. I won't buy another Ariston product, full-stop.
Any stove manufacturer can make a stove with good stove-top gas rings and trivets, but it's the oven that requires special consideration, and this is why I initially chose the Ariston CP859MT (Australia). The 'self-cleaning' function sounded great, and although it doesn't work for the racks - which still need to be removed and cleaned by hand - it does the job on the walls, roof and floor of the oven. But I've had a few problems:
1. The rubber door seal broke about 18 months after installation of the stove, and the repair man took around six weeks to come and replace it. While I do live in a rural area, the repair man lives only 15 minutes' drive from our place, and we're within 40 minutes of Tweed Heads, Lismore and Ballina (all) - quite large centres.
2. The oven does not seem to provide even heat. When I bake 3 loaves of bread, the loaf on the right hand side bakes quicker than the one on the left.
3. There were only 2 racks provided with the stove - the griller rack and one other rack. This seems quite 'mean' considering it being a 900mm stove which assumes the purchaser is wanting to bake larger quantities at one time.
4. Two months ago the timer bell stopped working properly and became very faint, so that I could not hear it if I wasn't in the kitchen. I contacted the Arisit Warranties people and although I received an automatically generated reply acknowledging my request, I am still waiting for the repair man to come and fix this. He told me, four weeks ago, that I should contact Arisit myself and tell them to send him the replacement part, which I did, but as I say, that's four weeks ago now and I've heard nothing more about it.
So, I would not recommend buying this model as the price is far higher than the quality of the product and the after-sales service is absolutely abysmal.
PS I emailed them this morning to warn them of my impending 'bad' review and wouldn't you guess? I have just received (another) automated phone call acknowledging my request for repair. I'm not holding my breath.
Stove ok; door will not close
We have been living in a house with this stove for a couple of years and we've never been able to really assess the performance of this stove. The reason is that the door will not close.
Curiously we have friends who own the same product and they have the same problem. Further to this we do have problems with timer, but we have had to live with that.
Door hinge broken
So upset with this oven the door doesn't close properly & never has no one wants to know about it. How can u cook in this oven with the door open?? So upset I will never buy this brand of oven again.
I thought I was buying the best oven.
We purchased an 800cm freestanding electric oven, gas hop, ariston model, I have to agree with the top comment, the door won't close. Ariston doesn't want a bar of it, it is worthless. Don't buy an ariston people look at other models please. The top element has gone, the fan doesn't seen to want to move of its own accord. Very disappointing.
This is a piece of JUNK
Like most other people there are few choices for a 800mm oven so we settles on the Ariston CP859, well what a piece of junk, After 12 months, the door won't close properly, the timer doesn't work, the thermostat in oven is 40 degrees out, and the hot air (by design) which comes out of the top of the oven door had been recorded at 48 degrees so if you cook anything for any period of time the dials become so hot you cannot touch them. Ariston service well I get a better response from my dog or cat, at least they listen. Would I buy another, you have to be joking. Move away from the the Ariston............move far away.
Piece of junk
I also have this model oven and it's a piece of junk. Ariston service is non existent, their tech department useless. the oven door hinges seized 6 months after it was installed and at great expense have now been replaced 3 times and all have failed, leaving the door virtually unusable. The door has dropped and is now so out of alignment it leaves a huge gap at the top and will not close which allows hot air to escape heating the above dials to almost untouchable and erasing all signage. The last technician we had into fix it says the door is poorly designed and too heavy for the hinges, which result in the hinges crushing under the weight. Ariston do not want to know about the problems and ignore all request for repair, explanations or responsibility and in fact will not address the issue at all. Do not buy this brand oven.
The Ariston CP859MTX is making baking cakes and cooking roasts a pleasure, roast meats are mouthwatering and just does a superb job of baking any cake, my most memorable cake was our beautiful rich fruit Christmas cake.
The normal fan force operation would be my main favourite.
Our thermostat failed, the service from Ariston was great, it was up and running in no time.
December 5 2018
I still stand by my comments about The Ariston CP859MTX door seals are still original and it still behaves as it did when new, the thermostat replacement is still good, I give the stove top marks for all the things I mentioned when I did my first review
Waiting for answers!
I have owned this model for over 5 years. I needed an 800 wide oven to fit into the opening left by a previous (other make) cooker.
The oven has and still does bake really well, although I've found it a noisy cooker, even when not in fan-forced mode. Oven bulbs blew in the first six months, and the piezo ignitions on the stove top sometimes work and sometimes not. Just outside the warranty period, the Oven temperature light has stopped working, and a tech guy (not from Ariston), reckoned that the piece that holds the bulb has melted and therefore dropped. To see if the oven has reached temperature, I have to look between the crack in the stainless steel join to see if the light is still on or not.
A few months ago...it became impossible to open the door, as the hinges had seized. so I purchased replacement hinges from an appliance spares place. Whilst the replacement hinges appeared to be the same as the ones we were replacing, these new hinges wouldn't close the door completely, nor keep it open at right angles, enabling me to insert or remove the food easily. I put up with this problem. although have burned my wrists several times.
Now, one of the replacement hinges has seized, and in removing the door from the oven, the inside of the door has buckled, meaning that a whole new door is required.
Do you think I can get an answer from Ariston, about whether or not I can get a complete new door, fully assembled, so I can keep this going for a while longer? the answer is no. I have phoned twice, I have emailed, and I am appalled that I am told they will get back to me once the tech department gets back to the receptionist. How hard can it be for them to ring a department within the same company to give me the answer I need. I think she must be waiting for a call from Italy, where they are made.
I'm tired of this planned obsolescence...where things seem to go wrong just outside of warranty, and replacement parts are difficult to source or so expensive that it isn't worth the bother. At least the hob still works, but the oven for me at the moment is useless without a door!
I would advise that if you want a cooker to last or be able to be maintained...stay away from a European model, or be prepared to replace the whole darn thing every 4 years or so. And if your building a new home or renovating your kitchen...don't put in an 800mm wide model, go for 900mm as you have more choice of manufacturers, and not be stuck with Ariston or Ilve. If the company chooses to not give me an answer I will renovate the whole kitchen and replace with Westinghouse, manufactured here in Australia.
Bought Ariston CP859MTX 80 cm cooker 3 weeks ago, very happy with cooking aspect and the stylish model has lifted my kitchen area. I agree with previous reviewer about top element inside oven being too close to front of door, I also burnt my hand and this needs to be looked at. All in all a great cooker, easy to clean and the oven settings are accurate. Was nervous about cooker being stainless steel and scratching surfaces but have soft cloths for cleaning and no problem
Looking for weeks to find a good 800mm size upright cooker. CP859MTX came to the party, and it can cater for a party too. All features cook well and the unit is very easy to keep clean.
I really love my new Ariston 80 cm stove. Have cooked quiet a few things in the oven using two trays at the one time and they both turn out beautifully coloured and perfectly cooked. Gas hot plates are a bit slower than my last stove but will just be a case of getting used to it. The top hob is easy to clean. Very happy !
Great Oven but
Great oven temp is accurate.
Only pitfall is the griller setup that uses the standard oven rack as the griller tray. Strange set up and not good to clean:(.
This can be fixed by providing a standard griller tray.
Thanks Ariston for everything else in this oven cook top !
A hardy 'professional styled' cooker for the home...
The 80cm Professional Upright Cooker from Ariston is everything it's name implies. With sturdy, stainless steel construction combined with stylish looks, this cooker performs as good as it's pleasing to the eye. To use so far, the gas cooktop is everything one would expect from a 'professional styled' cooker that's designed for the home. The cast iron grilles are sturdy, rustic and easy to remove for cleaning. The electric oven boasts a range of settings for roasting/fan-forced cooking/grilling/self-cleaning and is easy to use. All considered, this product is a winner.
Italian manufactured with sturdy, stylish and functional design makes this oven a practical addition to the home kitchen.
The only thing wrong with it, is that the top element inside the oven is too close to the opening, making it easy to sear yourself when it's on. This is a major design flaw that should be considered by Ariston. Some kind of guard in front of the elelemen would have made this oven perfect.
A great oven
Purchased my new oven about 4 weeks ago knowing it was a good brand and have found it fantastic. The only issue and it may be a standard thing but the gas fittings did not come with the oven so had to then go search for them but once it was up and running it's been superb. Heats super quickly. Again one small point to note be careful when moving the cast iron plates to clean as they do scratch quite easy I haven found this with other ovens. All in all very pleased with my purchase and feel extra confident with a 5 year warranty.
Great looking great brand
Scratches very easy no gas attachments included
So far So good
Have only had the unit 2 weeks and it has delivered what it promised. Bread baking is successful with accurate temperature controls. the 5 year warranty is a bonus and we hope that we will never call on it
Solidly built with good steel knobs for a change. The hobs are strategically placed to minimize splashing
Build and warranty
Fantastic no waiting around like most electric ovens you can cook straight away!
This was bought as replacement for our old CP 858 MTX who sadly died after 14 years so faithful service. We'd shopped around but found this was still the best on the market for us in this price range :) and the only one out there with a 5 year warranty.
Can cook straight away if you have it on the right setting
Nothing so far!
