The self-cleaning option actually cleans. The dough proving option has been fantastic. The built-in meat thermometer is amazing, some of the best roasts we have had in years! There are so many options you really can't make a mistake and when it thinks your food is ready it just stops!

Love love love - easy to use, quick to heat, perfect temperature control and easy to clean
Bought this oven to upgrade our 3 year old 90cm Westinghouse which took forever to heat and cooked unevenly. We were always burning or under cooking.
This oven actually does everything it advertises. Easy to use - once you figure the modern touch dials, it's actually very intuitive. It heats very quickly and has a timer to let you know how long it's been heating for and when it's reached the desired temperature and the best thing - it actually cooked like you imagine a great oven would - at the temperature and evenly! For the first time in yea...rs, we are actually able to follow a recipe and it turns out like it's supposed to. So impressed by this oven and it's so easy to clean. Also being a 60cm oven, it's actually more than enough for our family of 4 and I love the telescopic trays. No more reaching in the oven and risk burning myself. You just pull these great little trays out on smooth runners. Just so easy to use. Can't recommend this oven enough. Well worth the price tag. Also cool to touch so great when you have 2 toddlers. Thank you Bosch for such a great product.

5 stars - pure & simple
5 stars in every aspects including cosmetics, functionality, performance. Heats rapidly, appears to stay clean more so than normal ovens, easy to wipe off & back to new condition. dial function is very handy, modern & different too, than boring dials with numbers. Love it.

Bought this oven along with the CMG633B.1B compact oven with microwave function to go in our brand new kitchen. After 25 years with our old oven, the last 12 months not having it working at all, our new oven is a god send. Cooks beautifully BUT takes a while getting use to the preprogrammed settings, time and heat settings which differ significantly from our old oven. Comes with a manual that had extensive instructions for a wide variety of meals telling you exactly which setting and time to put them on for eg: leg of lamb, boned, medium - cook...ware, uncovered - shelf position 2 - fan forced - 170-190 degrees - 50-80mins. Can’t really go wrong with that but to be truthful , we’ve done a lot of trial and error rather than refer to the booklet. Tried the pyrolitic cleaning function after doing roast pork that spat fat all over the interior of our nice clean new oven. Have to say I was a little disappointed. It did burnt to ash most of the fat splashes but needed to clean the oven door glass again. The control dial and touch settings are well set out and easy to use. Just makes sense once you get use to them. Get ready for lots of beeps and for the fan to keep going for around 5 - 10 minutes after you finish cooking to cool the oven down. You can adjust the fan cooling time in settings though . Overall a much better oven than what we had and looking forward to mastering it over the next 25 years.

This oven perfectly cooks everything we place in it. To get the best out of it you have to read the user manual and become familiar with its many settings.
The pyrolytic feature is brilliant for cleaning the oven. It leaves a white dust on the sides which you just wipe out once it’s finished cooling down. The oven is extremely quite in its operation as well! Well done Bosch.

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.

We should have purchased another Brand
The oven is great, Oven appears to cook food evenly the grill is good, the best feature is the rapid heat setting (preheat) that gets the oven up to temperature very quickly, the only reason for the 1 star they do not have a Service Agent in Gippsland where I am located and if it develops a fault it's my problem which has been the issue with a cooktop I purchased at the same time. Bosch don't want to know you when this happens. They don't call back, Customer service is not good. I have been chasing them for weeks.

Love this oven
Easy to use; quick heating; plenty of preset options and easy to set custom settings; even baking at all oven levels using fan bake. Absolutely no complaints and would recommend as a non expensive all rounder without the bells and whistles of steam cooking etc.

Great oven that cooks evenly
This oven has served us well, we like to bake lots of breads and pastries which requires the oven to heat and cook evenly. It has only ever not done that when we put it on the wrong shelf (shelf 2 is the best for baking).
The bakery proving feature is really handy and can speed up the making of a cake to a couple of hours.
Only issue I have with it is the touch screen sometimes not responding, it doesn't happen enough to really be a hassle though.

Quiet, but worst designed oven, uneven cooking hard to clean.
Good little oven because It is soooo quiet. Preheats quickly and bakes ok. Trays are good size and clean easily. Oven gets VERY steamy and sometimes there is water dripping from the bottom shelf into the door hinge after the cook. The dial does not behave most times -- gets jammed and it is hard to move it to change temperature or time. Baking is usually uneven for cookies on the trays or cakes....one side gets cooked more. The on/off button is extremely sensitive and when I am cooking at the stove above the oven, oven turns on by my clothing...or movements. Oven seems to steam up a lot when cooking roast vegetables especially Pumpkin. You really have to be extremely careful to not get steam burned when opening the door of the oven. Allow the steam to pour out before sticking your face closer to see items in oven. It asks to be eco cleaned too often. For that you have to take out the side rails which is tedious and very hard. To fit rails back is real pain and impossible to do even after multiple attempts. Even electrician who installed struggled and even scratched surface trying. Hate eco cleaning which oven requests almost monthly. Worst design. Would NOT recommend.

All product faults are installation faults
I bought this oven from Appliance Online and got it installed from licensed carpenter. We noticed that door is not aligned and oven does not sit properly in the cabinet. My carpenter showed me that the diagonals differ by few millimetres. When I raised complaint for the first time they warned me if it is installation fault I will be charged. Since then I have sent many photographs details and two engineer have visited from their partner as Bosch do not have their own engineers. First engineer tried to fix the door to an extent. The second engin...eer showed spirit level that since the oven is not levelled it is unaligned. We have tried to explain Bosch that my cabinet is perfectly levelled but we had to intentionally put support as oven is shorter on one side. However they are not ready to listen or escalate this issue. The oven has no functional issues.

Worst Controls on the planet
Worst Oven Ive ever had the misfortune to own.
- Oven Heats decently when it decides it wants to operate.
- Open Oven at any decent temp and Steam will scald you so stand back.
- Try and set timer and press start and it doesnt start it sits there waiting for you to press start again. Set time and wait for it to start it sometimes does, sometimes doesnt. Set time watch it start to count down and walk away; come back 10 minutes after the end time should have happened and its paused at 2 seconds past when it should have starte...

Not the greatest oven, especially for the price.
This oven sounds great on paper but has really annoying little features that make me wish we looked elsewhere. You have to shut the door when grilling, making melting cheese on an omelet for example pretty hard, it turns off no matter what after your timer is finished, so you need to remember to re enter all the settings if it needs a bit more time. Our display screen broke and was covered with red lines until we reset the whole thing at the mains. For the amount paid, it’s annoying and not worth it.
Would give it 0 if I could
Renovated my whole kitchen and purchased everything for Bosch. Our oven sat in the Garage for 3 months while I Kitchen was completed. Once it was installed I use the pre set settings. The fan doesn’t turn on and a strong burning plastic smell Started. Grease went everywhere and destroyed the interior on the oven. We had 2 technicians come out , one replacing the seal and the other saying everything is fine. 4 MONTHS ON back and forth with customer service they have say it’s our fault as the smell is from grease.APPARENTLY I can’t tell the diffe...rence between grease and plastic . The head office never calls back and when you call the 1300 number they said head office is handling the oven is less then 12 months old!!!. I have now lodged a complaint with consumer affairs

Love it !!
The oven we have is the HBG6753S1A Series 8 made in Germany oven. (No idea why the review header has the same model number as a Series 6 oven)
We have previously had a top of the range AEG pyrolytic oven back in the early days of pyrolytic ovens.
It cooks very evenly and the fast heat up function is brilliant. I have read reviews on this and other websites where people have commented that the rotary dial is hard to operate on Bosch ovens having this control system. My wife and I have not found this at all. The dial is very easy to operate and control and the oven is in fact simplicity itself to operate.
I can't recommend it highly enough. We really love this oven.
Great oven so far
The oven looks very good and cooks very evenly and certainly quicker than my old appliance although have only used a few times to date..Took a little time to master the controls correctly.Yet to use the pyrolylitic function. Cools down relatively quickly and can’t wait to try some cake making as I think it will do an excellent job.
Very Good So Far
Did recent kitchen renovation so farewelled 37 year old oven (still in good working order!)
However am enjoying fast heating of this new oven, though told not to expect same lifespan as old one. Would prefer 2 racks to be supplied rather than only one. Seems easy to clean, though access to top surface above griller would be impossible to do. Pity it wasn't hinged to drop down as some other brands do.

This oven is brilliant! The cooking options are endless and there are so many programmed settings cooking literally anything is so simple. Find something to cook and there will be a setting there all ready for you! We love to do a roast chook now, you literally select all the info down to the cut and weight of chicken and insert the temp probe, hit start and wait! I’ll never forget the first one we did it came out looking and smelling so professional! We were so proud! Shocked at how easy it was to use! The pyrolitic cleaning function ma...kes short work of the clean up too. The easy gliding tray and rack guides are super sturdy and will let you glide out the tray or rack completely to make it easier to lift out or see progress. Easy to use roller guide select knob and very functional settings. Makes alert sounds that are not at all annoying but modern and kind of uplifting, as strange as that sounds. Love cooking with this oven, I get excited every time I use it!
Good oven but
I am very satisfied with this oven but one problem which I wasn't told prior to purchase is that you cannot use any non stick pans or silicon baking papers in the oven. So I had to purchase all new cake pans etc.
Other than this so far I am very happy with cooking of oven.
Very nice oven. Good size. It reaches temp quickly and maintains it well (ive used a thermometer to check).
The control dial is awful. It can take ages to set it depending on how fast it feels like moving. At other times its fast. My concern is that this may deteriorate over time. So, not sure whether thats normal or not, but I suspect its badly designed. I like the look of it but wish it worked better.
The meat probe works easily and well. Happy with that.
Havent had to clean it or use the Pyrolitic function as yet, but hope its straighforward.
Steam function is great. Although emptying water tank awkward due to the placement of the filler.
Questions & Answers
We have a new Bosch oven. I want to clean it and really don’t want to use the self clean option in a wall oven. Can I use Easy Off like I always used for our previous oven?
Hi. ! My touch panel is not working correctly. I want to access "Basic Settings" menu button. It will not respond when you touch the sensor button. I have tried touching the "Basic Settings" button using a number of different pressure and length of time. I have also now found that the "Clean button" is also is not responding. Using other menu options I have found these 2 buttons either do not work or take sometime to respond. I did have a service person come out some 8 months ago with a similar problem I was having with the Oven. I was advised by a Bosch technician that keeping the surface clean and dry helps, plus the way that you touch the sensor button may effect the buttons response. Things seemed to work for a little while. Now the problems have returned, only worse. The oven is now only 30 months old ! Have turned it off at the house fuse box a number of times but no change.
I would be interested in any thoughts before I put in another "Service request" Which obviously will cost me. Any ideas ?
