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!
Looks good, works well, pyrolytic cleaning so so
I have recently had 2 of these ovens installed as part of a new kitchen renovation. We bought these ovens as we have used their sister brand siemans (loved those ones) in another renovation however the price point on the bosch this time was the selling point for us. I like these ovens, they're ok, would I buy them again or recommend them? Probably not. My biggest gripe would be the pyrolytic self cleaning function, it's pretty woeful. Even after a clean on the highest setting I'm still left with marks in the oven which I have to get in and scru...b which defeats the purpose, if i wanted to do that i wouldn't have bought a pyrolytic. It just doesn't seem to heat high enough to turn the dirt into dust which our last siemans oven was amazing at. While this oven is by no means cheap, I guess you get what you pay for.

A little complicated
We are quite happy with this oven but we quite often have difficulty with the finger touch control. Maybe our fingers are too dry but we always do get to where we want to go, so not a big problem. The settings make things easy to get the right programme for cooking the various meats or cakes etc to get them to turn out nicely. The Pyrolytic cleaning system is a really good benefit.

Great Oven, easy to use and full of programs.
I recommend this oven. Very quiet, and my favorite feature is the quick heating, it heats so fast it's unreal.
The oven is quiet and well constructed. The soft close door is fantastic.
My unit came with the rotary dial full of gunk and dust, I could not rotate the dial I had to use a crazy pressure to rotate it, after calling Bosch they advised me to clean the dial.
Efficient and sleek
This oven is great. It is simple to use (once you get the hang of it!) and intuitive. It seals well and doesn’t let hot air out once it is closed. There is a function where you can set what time it starts and when it finishes so you can set it and then leave the house and come back to a cooked meal! It seems to steam food more than crisp it up.

Love this oven
This is a great oven – easy to use, super stylish and not ridiculously expensive. The dial interface is surprisingly easy to use, and the child lock is a great feature with three little kids in the house. Heats up really quick, and holds a constant temperature. Pre-programmed settings are handy too.
Great value & easy to use
Used my new oven this week - cooked beautifully, and the independent timer worked well too. At first glance, dials, etc. looked confusing, but if you're like me and not particularly interested in the many included cooking programs, and just want to use as a regular oven, it's not difficult to use at all. Just turn oven on, select fan-forced, dial your temperature, then press start. It doesn't come with a useful telescopic shelf, but I can order that separately (1 or 2 shelf) RRP from $149, which still makes the appliance good value.

Love this oven!
LOVE this oven! Looks exceptional in a new kitchen - so sleek. So many functions (though I use say I haven't used them all). Really like the fast heat up - it would be up to 200 degrees in a matter of minutes. Grill plus function for browning the top of dishes is a particular favourite. Also love the telescopic arms for the trays. 10/10!
Second Bosch Oven I've owned
I purchased this oven simply because I had purchased another Bosch pyrolitic Oven 6 years ago which was left in our house when we sold. I loved it back then and I still love it now. Cooks evenly and is so easy to use. I haven't used all the functions yet as there are so many.
Nice looking but can be annoying.
Bought this oven because it looked great and I liked the idea of the dial and the pyro element. The pyro part is excellent, it cleans the oven really well.
The dial is fun, but a bit of a pain esp when trying to explain to older people how to use the oven. I would often think I'd turned the oven on and only realise later that I hadn't and it hadn't been warming up. Has a few aspects to it that are a bit frustrating! Also the screen kept going a bit funny at times & I had to switch it on and off to make it come right again.

Very easy to use. The auto menu for cooking is amazing. Added stream function keeps everything perfectly succulent. Self cleaning function works great. Looks good in a modern kitchen. Really can't fault anything about it.
Easy to use, but still learning settings...
I love my oven. In fact, I have 2 of them mounted one on top of the other.
They are super easy to use and cook evenly and quickly, consistently.
I have had a little trouble finding the perfect setting for baking cakes, but I’m sure with a little time and experimenting I’ll work that out too.
Questions & Answers
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?
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 ?
