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.
Purchased in October 2016.
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.
Purchased in April 2017 for A$1,700.00.

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.
Broken after 2 weeks
I did like how the oven performed after install, however after only 2 weeks it failed. An error was displayed E0532.
I have had to contact Bosch 3 times to arrange a technician, who was due today. After no one showed up and chasing the technician again,
I have now been told, parts are required which will take an additional 5 business days, once Bosch has approved the repair.
Come on Bosch, I expected better from you! Extremely disappointed!
FAULTY, UNSAFE OVEN! NOT HAPPY BOSCH!
Purchased my Bosch HBG6753S1A pyrolytic oven on 11/11/2016, and have been happy with it until recently when I began to experience the following issues when using the oven;
1. Oven no longer appears to seal properly as I have steam vapors leaking out;
2. Grease patches leech out onto the kickboard below;
3. Excessive smoke fills the kitchen when using the pyrolytic function;
4. Grease drips between the two glass panels of the oven door.
I had the Bosch technician attend the house on the 11th September and he advised: "that he had not co...me across anything like this before, that he had the exact same oven at home and had never experienced issues" like the ones I have identified. I also have two friends with the exact same oven, they have not experienced any of these issues. Further, he recommended that I not use the oven as I would run the risk of it catching on fire" and that accordingly the oven, in his opinion, should be replaced. He stated that this would be his recommendation to Bosch. A representative from Bosch contacted me on the 12th September and completely resiled from the technician's oral advice. She insisted that the best Bosch could do was to send me some "gel" which I am supposed to put in the oven and leave overnight. Obviously this Bosch representative (possibly Vicki?) has no interest in customer safety or indeed customer satisfaction. If I am informed by a Bosch technician that the oven is not safe to use, then under no circumstances would I be foolish enough to use it. No responsible Bosch representative should ask me to put myself or my property at risk. Gel is not going to address my safety concerns around this Bosch product. I explained that I was most unhappy with her response and she reiterated that this was all she could do. After reading some of the Bosch oven reviews, I understand that I am not the only one to have experienced issues with my Bosch oven and I believe that as the oven is still under warranty, it is incumbent upon Bosch to address the significant safety and product faults that I am experiencing.
It is a great oven with stream added. Although the price tag is a bit of expensive, it is worth to have it in your kitchen. I highly recommend it! It is very easy to clean after using it. I was warned by shop assistant before I purchase the oven about the wheel control panel. However I found it is quite easy to use.
Good looking unit
Well I have only had this for 3 weeks as I moved into our new home and here was no dishwasher. Very clever unit. tells me when there are only 2 rinses left so add some more rinse aid. No buttons on the outside so kids cant play with the switches, very very quiet which is a plus, easy manual instructions, I pressed the wrong cycle and it was easy to change it over. didn't have to read the whole book. I love it
Great oven although a bit slow at top/bottom heating mode
Great product overall. Working well and nicely designed. The only thing which could have been better is the power at the top/bottom heating mode - it's way lower than one at 4D mode. So it takes longer to cook same meals. It also beeps a bit too loudly when finishes the program. Otherwise excellent oven.
I love this oven! Easy to operate and great results. I didn't used to be a baker, but this oven is fabulous and have done a number of successful cakes. The pyrolytic cleaning function is great. I like this oven so much I moved it from my old place to my new one.

Not as advertised. Doesn't have door lock feature!
I bought this model specifically for its door lock feature as I have young kid. However, the oven does not have the Door lock feature as advertised in The Bosch Kitchen Appliances Catalogue - June 2018 edition (http://v3au.zone-secure.net/drive/5424/815432/#page=84). This model can only lock the control panel, not door and control! False advertising!
If I activate the Childproof lock, only the control panel is locked, the door can still be opened. When I go to Basic Setting, the 'Childproof Lock' option, where I'm supposed to be able to choo...se between Control only or Door & Control Lock is not there. I can only see 13 options as opposed to 14 in the manual. I have tried to contact Bosch's customer support via phone and email several times but all I got is 'if you can't see it in the settings, then it's not available on this model'. They're not willing to check further with product demonstrator, or the technical division, or even apologise!
The oven that cooks for you
This was the best investment in our new kitchen. The settings do all the work for you, adjusting temp and cooking times depending on the food cooked. I also love that it also cleans itself. It not only gets to temp quickly, but is extremely accurate (within 1-3 degrees). I can't fault it!
Questions & Answers
I need to purchase a new oven sooner than later. I have been looking at a Bosch series 4, Are the issues that everybody has with rotating the knob applicable to this oven we both have arthritis and concerned it will be to difficult to operate and as we are pensioner is this the best for value or oven for us. Regards Christine and Alan Wood
Can you change the language on a series 8 oven?
Hi I purchased a new HBG633B.1A oven approx 1 month ago.
For the past 2 days, since last using the oven, the fan has been running constantly & has not stopped. I am concerned there is a fault with the oven.
Would you kindly advise ASAP.
