Plenty to like. Only one flaw.
We bought our oven through Retravision. We have had our kitchen renovated and opted for all Bosch appliances and I wanted them made in Germany. We wanted a quality oven to replace its el-cheapo predecessor. When cooking with our previous oven, you had to stop half way through and rotate the food to get it to cook evenly, the element blew routinely and the temperature was largely guesswork.
Enter the Bosch oven and we found a whole new world. I should mention that it was delivered to my front lawn packaged in flimsy styrofoam wrapped with shrink...
Purchased in January 2020 at RetraVision for $1,798.00.
Don’t buy this oven
We chose this oven as in our prior renovation we had the older series equivalent and were extremely happy with it. The newer model (serie 8) is not user friendly and my husband and I curse at it at least once a month. Yes it cooks - however this should be a non-negotiable with ovens at this price bracket. What we find endlessly frustrating is the complexity of selecting the appropriate settings, a timer that does not display (instead the oven displays how long it has been on for... who cares?!), the 2 telescopic shelf rails are too close togeth...er so we constantly use a different shelf so our two trays of food fit (prior series had this right... why change it?!). It requires additional brain function to select the appropriate setting when again the prior series was so simple. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve accidentally (a) turned the oven off when meaning to amend something else, (b) selected an incorrect setting, (c) used a separate timer (phone/watch etc) as I can watch it count down as the oven doesn’t display this, (d) had to refer to the instruction manual to work out how to do something as the oven is not intuitive. In a brand new home build our only regrets were purchasing this oven and the second oven which sits next to it in our kitchen the Serie 8 HBG633BS1.
Purchased in May 2018.
Questions & Answers
Hi. We have just bought a house with this oven in it. They left the manual which has been great. Does this oven beep when it comes to temperature, because mine is not doing after 19 minutes of running oven at 180 it must be at temperature by now?
Thank you in advance
no beep. the red line indicates progress to target temperature
hello our bosh HBG6753S1A is not very old and we are having real problems moving the control dial around. It seems to be very sticky. In fact, most often I need to use a non slip plastic drawer liner to move the control dial around. It certainly wasn't like this when first purchased, and as both of my children have left home and it has only been my husband and I here since it was installed, it doesn't get an awful amount of use. is this normal for the dial to get sticky and difficult to move around? Is there anything I can try to fix this please?
Hi Melissa Coleman,
Thanks for you question. No the dial shouldn't be sticky. We're sorry to hear that you're having issues with your appliance. We'd like to help, if you contact us on 1300 369 744. Be sure to provide your model number & we’ll investigate for you. Regards, Bosch Home Australia.
The rotary dial piece can be removed (it just pops out) and the back of it wiped clean with a rag to remove cooking vapours from the oven which collects there! It takes a minute and makes it just like new. We have just been shown this by a salesman at Harvey Norman and now LOVE our oven again!!
Can I leave the racks in for the pyrolitic cleaning. The manual says to take them out.
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch Oven.
Unfortunately, you cannot clean any of the wire racks when using the cleaning function. The wire racks are not suitable for cleaning while using the cleaning function; this will discolour them.
If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.

We have a new Bosch wall oven. I want to clean it and really don’t want to use the self clean option in a wall oven. Can I use the Easy Off that I always used in our previous oven?
