Great oven with a few issues
I would have easily given this 5 stars were it not for the 24-hour clock and the poorly designed and cheap wire racks. The clock is so annoying, I want to cook food not plan a military campaign. The only reason manufacturers do this is so they can include it as a "feature" in more expensive ovens, it's not like it costs them more to make the clock adjustable or that it's more technical. And the wire racks are sloppy and move side to side about 2cm, there is also no stop so they hit the enamelled back of the oven. You can tell there was little t...hought put into the design of the racks, which is a shame as the rest of the oven is wonderful. It is easy to install, preheats quickly, has even heat distribution, intuitive and simple controls, bright interior light, powerful and quiet fan and cooks food wonderfully. It's also very well insulated. This oven is so good I no longer use my expensive air fryer. Shame about the annoying clock.

It's a beast of an oven with extremely efficient heat retention and distribution. I have never used its Pyrolytic self-cleaning feature, as I use the oven quite clean, but that would be a bonus feature. I also consider the fact that it doesn't have unnecessary fancy features such as telescopic shelving, much better as that means there are less number of things that can go wrong.
It's only con is the two plastic buttons used to adjust heat and the program, and the way they turn a bit too easy. I don't like cheap plastic components on these kinds of devices.
It's a fantastic practical oven, easy to use, and easily deserves the top mark.

This oven, with it's pyrolitic cleaning function is very good indeed. It has a function to preheat rapidly before you switch to fan forced or normal cooking. The fan forced is quite intense and cooking times can be reduced. The pyrolitic cleaning function works very well, reducing everything in a dirty oven to ash that you just sweep out afterwards. Excellent product.

Good basic oven - neat, tidy and does it's job
Bought a new oven when we bought our unit. Overall a good worker though would put it at the more basic end. I do have a few niggles with it
1) When coming up to heat - there is a light indicator, however no sound notification. This is fine if you are in the kitchen, not so helpful if getting on with other jobs while getting the oven to heat.
2)The dials are not that easy to read as we do not have the luxury of being able to have it mounted at eye height. the most commonly used temperatures are under the dial
Do like that the dials get pushe...
