Very good electric oven with good features, good strong heat and circulation
This is my review of the ASKO Pro Series Oven model OT8636S, Series 3 Multifunctional Oven. I will do a comprehensive review of this appliance because buying and using a contemporary electric oven has many aspects to it.
Functions I like about this oven: My preference was for some dial/knob selection controls. However this oven had both dial knobs with use of a sensor touch control panel. The Aqua Clean surface was in my price budget because I could not afford the other very expensive pyrolytic clean oven models. The OT8636S came with 2 larg...e shallow Asko baking trays and 1 deep Asko baking tray and 1 wire grid. The 3 Asko baking trays were of good solid quality and not flimsy. This oven also has telescopic arms on one level only which can accommodate any of the 3 Asko baking trays and/or the wire grid. I prepared a huge tray of meat lasagne using the deep Asko baking tray and I had placed it in the telescopic arms. As it was a huge meal it was a heavy tray of food and the telescopic arms supported this heavy tray well and they extended easily. It was better or safer than using slide out wire grid racks in my opinion. (Although I wish that all oven manufacturers listen and create matching oven baking trays with big side handles because none of the brands offer side handles. We need side handles to lift such large heavy trays of food. They’re all difficult to hold or grab). Other features I liked about this oven: 73-75 litre oven volume capacity, a large upper heater grill with adjustment for small or large heating, the bottom heater, the fan heater, the soft closing door, the big long handle on the door. Good interior visibility with the 2 interior lights with automatic switch off as well as separate ON/OFF selection for the light switch. The automatic switch off for the heaters while the oven door is open. The heaters come on automatically after the oven door is closed. The oven is marked on the side with 5 levels for wire grid/trays. The OT8636S does not have a visible Vaulted cavity ceiling as the Asko Australia web site states but I’m happy with that anyway (although I wish they get their information correct). Asko say, cooking with this OT8636S oven on at least 2 levels can be done simultaneously using their baking trays so thats good and efficient. Using and setting this OT8636S oven was easy. Select the mode or function using the the large left dial knob and press START/STOP on the sensor touch. I can add the cooking time or timer or adjust the oven temperature using the right dial knob. The knobs had a good grip and good visibility including easy to read settings with good brightness and contrast. The sensor touch electronic control panel displays the temperature, clock and cooking time etc.
