3.5 years old and dead!
Unfortunately, we thought Bosch were a good brand. We purchased oven/cooktop package. Seemed to work reasonably until now, with exception of some uneven browning. But only 3.5yrs later, the oven has died. Still waiting 1 week for Bosch technician $80 call-out, and $99/hr, excluding parts? Some research and I wondered if it was the fan oven element, but when my wife called to check that part was available (to not more waste more time without an oven - as this has been extraordinarily disruptive, given we use the oven almost daily!), the Bosch person said there is no stock of that part. Apparently, it's quite a common problem. Unfortunately, I'll definitely be buying another brand! Not recommending bosch! That's sad.
In addition, one of the zones in our electric Bosch cooktop also has died. seems to be very poor reliability. My cousin works for Siemens is similarly disappointed.
Purchased in December 2015.
Perfect depth for tight space
This was the only oven I could find that would fit flush in the space available in my kitchen. That alone is worth 5 stars! Nice modern look and it cooks quickly and evenly. Great value for money but it did only come with one wire shelf so I needed to buy an extra shelf after purchase.
Thought it would last longer
4 years old and the fan has completely burnt out, thought Bosch was a great brand.
Would have expected no problems for years as every one says Bosch is great you will have no issues, went by recommendations. A bit worried now as i purchased a Bosch dish washer recently too.
Will look to another brand now i think.
21/12 Just got the replacement and it’s broken, well done Bosch.
Excellent starting range oven
I have been using this oven for the last 6 months now. It has all basic features required in an oven and it does perform well compare to other ovens. I use it for baking cake, pizza etc and so far happy with the cooking. This oven cook the food evenly and also easy to clean after use.
I highly recommend this oven if you can get it for under $550.
I think it's a good oven, I have not used too much but it works well. Only regret is that there is no separate TOP section just for Grilling fish or Veggies. I saw some ovens have a separate tray on top to grill fish or chicken which means easy cleaning and no mess.
Although, this model also works great and I have no complaints as of now.
Love this oven
The oven works very well- as expected for a bosch appliance plenty of functions comes with one wire rack and 2 x solid trays one deeper than the other with comprehensive instructions and temp guidelines if required but it is easy to use. I have baked cakes and cooked a caserole and roast in it so far (only purchased in June 17) it cooks and browns evenly I love it!

We bought this oven after our previous one died and nearly set our house on fire. Given the dimensions of the space our choice was limited. Ever since we received the oven it has been fantastic. It cooks relatively evenly and my roast potatoes come out superb! The only downside was we couldn't access the service to have it installed for us on delivery. Luckily we found a local electrician who did it for us the same day the oven arrived so we didn't have to go without for too much longer.
Was best and good for baking just love it
It is just Awesome
Good for baking and best for pizza

Good for cooking and baking
I love love love love love love love love the oven so much
If u was to buy a oven I would buy a Bosch brand because I know they have plenty of room to cook in the oven. I would buy one that is a 5 star rating and i would buy a black coz they easier to clean then a white one
Love my oven!
I absolutely love my Bosch oven. It’s really hot so I generally have to make sure I set it to a lower heat than suggested in my recipe. Very easy to use and came with a lot of handy trays in it already so I didn’t need to buy any for baking!
I really love everything that this company produces, all of very good quality. The oven, which I use now is very practical, does not dry, bakes perfectly. The most convenient for me is that the oven can be set for a certain time and it bakes itself and turns itself off. I advise everyone to the oven Bosch.
Great addition to the kitchen
This oven is great, self cleans but still have to give it a wipe down now and then. Cooks very evenly and the look of the oven makes it feel like it was just meant to be there. So far cooked pork and beef stues and a few roats all turned out very nice
Great to use
It looks modern, goes well with a modern stylish kitchen. Works very well. Easy to use. Wish to be more affordable price tho. Other than that, it is a nice oven that you should have. 5 shelfs give you many options to position your racks. just be aware that the timer is very touchy. You should be careful to set the time by slightly feathery touch the screen :)
I love this oven it cooks beautifully and, the self cleaning function is amazing leaving only a little ash after uses, but you still have to take the racks out and clean manually which is annoying it bakes evenly I would recommend this oven to my friends you wont be disappointing
Total waste of money. Not what I expect of Bosch quality at all.
The user interface is totally unusable.
It is VERY touchy and the timer runs away just having your finger near it. It does random things if you get close to it while cooking (typically it locks itself) and tapping the touch screen doesn't work consistently.
We had the controller replaced under warranty but the new one is the same therefore the design is rubbish.
The technician thought it was very hard to use as well so it is not just us who think it's problematic.
I use 1, 2.5, 4 and 5 minute as well as 1 and 1.5 hour timers very frequently when I'm cooking and for the sub 10 minute timers they are so hard to set by the time you have set the appropriate timer the time is expired or longer.
The tech couldn't set a 1 hour timer either. +- 10 minutes seems to be as close as you can get.
As far as cooking is concerned I cannot comment as the unit is so dysfunctional we are selling it before heating it up so it is like new and buying a Westinghouse which we had in our last house which was great.
Love this oven
Oven heats up quickly and cooks evenly. I love that it has the low temperature settings which help when proving bread and making yogurt when the weather is cold. The grill is insanely hot so it doesn't take long at all to cook. The child lock is a very convenient feature with small kids.
Oven heats up quickly and the food chines out great too. Definitely an upgrade from my old gas oven. Besides not having to change the gas all the time which is nice because I use the oven a lot, the surface is made from stainless steel which makes looks sexy and gets dirty/rusty less quicker
I’m so glad I got this for Christmas last year my parents brought us this beautiful new over I love everything about it I like to cook and prepare food it’s just make my life more easy to cook my meal for gym and it’s best option for everyone who need it
High quality oven
I have been happy with my purchase of this oven from Bosch. It is easy to operate, cooks food quickly and evenly, and has some useful features such as the express pre-heating mode. The build and finish of the oven is of a high standard. The two control knobs can be depressed so that they won't obtrude when they are not in use. It is higher priced than other ovens, but it is well built and offers some additional useful features.
Good value, no frills, looks good in kitchen
Cooks food well and more evenly and heats up rather faster than the more expensive oven we replaced which had nothing wrong with it, we just wanted a new oven that hadn't had meat cooked in it.
We have had it for 4 months and have had no issues. I prefer the manual controls. I understand this model is not made in Germany, I hope it lasts as long as my other Bosch appliances that are made in Germany. For the price it seems very good value.
