Bargain and still good
Everything is still working well after about three years. There is a very slight gap in the attachment of the top plate to the chassis only on the left side. So slight it is only discernible when pressing on the top while cleaning and no problems with cooking. Don't think it allows spilt fluids to drain - no evidence anyway :) .
Top oven is great for browning lasagna and the like but a little inconsistent for baking. The main oven is brilliant but, only apparent when baking something like very light and fluffy cup cakes, cooks very, very slight...
Poor finish, appalling customer service.
White plastic trim on oven door already peeling off., after less than 6 months. Local customer service SAY that they have ordered a replacement, but it hasn't appeared in the last 2 monthly parts shipments. Looks like the manufacturer is NOT IN THE LEAST INTERESTED. And, they don't keep me updated, I have to keep chasing them.
Purchased in September 2018.

Induction hob issues after a few months.
The induction hob on this oven failed after a few months, have had people out to fix it but still no luck and still waiting. Now been going on for a few months and the repair man doesn’t know what to do. Having read reviews for previous belling ovens with induction tops it seems that they have a design issue. So disappointed as the ovens are great but would not buy aminduction top again.
DONT buy a Belling
I upgraded my free standing cooktop/oven with a Belling as I believed they were a premium product and I wanted an induction cooktop. My original purchase lasted just over 12 months, and then trying to get someone to actually come and have a look at this brand is a nightmare. It ended up being replaced as the small part that I needed would not be in Australia for months. Now my second, replacement stovetop is not working, again just over 12 months. I have the replacement warrenty, and I will NOT be getting another Belling.

Pretty good for the price
Needed a new electric oven and decided to get rid of the old built in stove top at the same time as I was sick of cooking with those very old electric elements that take forever to heat up. The installer was able to also cut out the bench top to make it fit.
The main oven has been great to use. We use it everyday but admittedly, really only use the fan forced operation. Have not really experimented with the others.
We have used the smaller 'oven' only a few times. It does not seem to heat up and cook like the regular oven so its really ...just a glorified grill in this house. The induction has been nice to use. It is so much quicker at heating up than the old elements - but like a previous reviewer mentioned, the levels seem to jump a bit. I suppose we arent paying big money for just an induction cooktop so it wont rival those. Pretty happy overall.

The perfect stove, I now cook like a chef.
The induction cooktop is so consistent, quick to heat up and simple to use. Selecting that perfect level of simmer or high temperature cooktop cooking gives perfect results every time.
Grilling is simple with the dual element control, the ability to use the grill as a small standard oven for those small single serve meals is a bonus.
The belling oven, with its multiple modes of operation (from fan forced to grilling and standard oven. The results have been consistently perfect, miles better than any previous oven I have owned in the past 45 years.
I now am confident to cook any dish with confidence.
At the end of cooking, clean up is quick and easy also
the product is good but we are still waiting to hear back about a couple of dents we found on it, we emailed Glen Dimplex about it over a week ago.
Bought this oven abought 4 months ago has been amazing induction heats up really quickly only down side is that from high heat to medium level is a large jump medium seems to be about 7 instead of 5. Having two ovens is great for such a little space would definitely recommend this to someone else
Questions & Answers
I use the fanned oven for my baking, but find that I need to turn the trays half way into the cooking time, as muffins at back cook faster. Is this normal?
I love the oven, have had it 3 years.
I do notice a white mark on the induction top.??
I have read on Whirlpool (https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2560250) that the Belling hotplates are 1.4 kw and will only boost to 1.8 kw. Is this a problem with cooking?
Sorry for the delay in our reply.
The inductors on this unit are rated (on boost) at 1.85KW ( normal operation, 1.4KW).This allows a rapid heat / boil facility and will not pose any issues with cooking.
Can I use "Easy Off " to clean slight build up in oven? Soapy water not working.
