I am not use oven frequently, I bought this one after my kitchen renovation done, choose it because it is made in Germany. It looks good, easy to use, easy to clean, cook food evenly and nice. Preheat is very fast. It is also very quiet when working. I love it.
Works until it doesn't
The product was okay, it worked well for the first couple of months and then the heating component gave in. Was covered by warranty, but it was a little bit of a hassle in getting it sorted with Bosh. It's definitely value for the price you pay, just make sure you get that extra warranty in!
Best oven in history and no wait times or burnt meals!
Bought this oven after old one died. The oven cooks perfectly and evenly. The rapid heating only takes 2-3 mins before the oven is ready. All meals cooked in the oven have been perfect no burning. Being a pyrolytic oven this means you wont need to use chemicals to clean it. It's great.
Only fault is price is a bit high but if you can get this at a discount grab it!
Best on the market
This oven does everything you want it to do and then more. It took awhile to read through the manual and familiarize myself with the large selection of settings and assist options. I cannot fault this product. I have had it for a bit over a year and I have never had any problems with it at all. It is easy to use and easy to clean. Would 100% recommend as it makes cooking a delight.
Easy to clean, good quality - made in germany
We chose this oven as it was made in Germany and had the pyro cleaning function. We have only used the cleaning function once but it works very well. Much better than having to use harsh chemicals! The oven is very easy to use, easy to clean and cooks nice and evenly. I’m also amazed at how quickly it preheats (love that feature).
Quality. Great machine
My wife and I purchased from Harvey Norman when doing our kitchen reno. We replaced an old Westinghouse and were unsure whether to spend the extra to get a good oven. We made the right choice. It doesn't burn the food. The timer and different options are great even though we usually just use the normal oven functions.
Overall would recommend to anyone wanting a new oven. Bosch quality and reliability.

Amazing oven, cannot live without it
We bought this oven to replace a very old Smeg. I cannot begin to describe how amazing this oven performs, and how it has totally changed my perspective on what you can do with this humble already-in-every-home appliance.
To begin with, the manual provides simple but detailed recommendations for cooking almost anything, down to which type of oven tray to use, on what level, what type of heating mode, and the temperatures and cooking times. This is great for things like oven-baked chips - a disaster in our old Smeg, but in this oven, with t...he recommended "Pizza" mode (who would have thought ??) they come out absolutely perfect every time. When you register the oven, they send you out a cookbook specifically for the oven - which has some great recipes in it, that the family have loved - including roast chicken, beef and pork, and some amazing cakes and desserts. The oven boasts once particular magical automatic setting, that needs to be mentioned - "PerfectBake". When cooking a cake (or a number of other different types of baked items) you simply follow the instructions on what level to place it, and tell it what you're baking, and the oven takes over completely. You don't tell it - and it doesn't tell you - what temperature it is at, there's no pre-heating, and you have no idea what stage it's at. But when it tells you that your cake is finished ... it is! It's amazing and every time we have used it the cake has come out absolutely perfect. It truly is amazing! The roasting probe is also great - allowing great control over cooking meats. This oven has truly transformed my opinion on what you can do with an oven, and my wife is even happier that I am doing more cooking (guys beware) - especially when I turn out amazing and perfect roast pork belly crackling (yum!)
Great oven! My wife and I purchased this oven twelve months ago and it has been one of the best additions to the house. Intuitive, easy to use buttons and menu. Gets up to temperature within a few minutes and the fan turns off when the door is open. Would recommend to anyone looking at renovating and updating their kitchen
Stylish and Easy to Operate
I would say the over is worth every penny as it does not give me any problem for the past 1 year. I cook almost every day and this oven never let me down. Great oven with accurate temperature. Great German build quality. Always happy with Bosch products. Would recommend to friends and family.

Purchased April 2017. Since then 4 warranty service calls over a two month period to date. Electronics completely replaced. Now found exhaust fan failed. Attempts to install a replacement failed with error messages so old fan reinstalled to allow the oven to at least be used while the issue is reviewed. Random shut downs during preheating meaning it needs to be watched closely. Clock resets to a different time overnight for reasons yet to be explained. Have requested a replacement and been advised by Bosch they are waiting on the latest service...report. Will update on progress but it is my strong suggestion based on our experience to buy something else if you prefer roasting reliability not to be an electronic lottery. A follow up on my post above. After the service report was lodged I had to chase Bosch about whether they had received the report and what was to happen. They agreed to a replacement but all was still not smooth sailing. I then received an sms from the original supplier to say my new oven was to be delivered the next day. I had to contact them to there would be no one there to receive it so could we make it the next day? No problem - delivery made and lemon removed. Luckily my son-in-law is an electrician so he was able to install. Replacement oven in use then a couple of days later I get a message from Bosch regarding making arrangements for delivery of my replacement oven!!! Had to ring them to say it had happened some days earlier. Replacement has functioned since installation without issue.

Great & not so great
We were looking for a pyro oven and found that only two brands on the market could have oven racks in the oven while on pyro function. As cleaning the racks was a priority for me my search was instantly narrowed to Bosch and one other brand. We decided on the Bosch serie 8 as it was their top of the range (at the time we bought it). I was hesitant about the wheel, thinking it would be a pain to use. It is! I would much rather have had a knob/dial to control the oven. If your finger is very dry it slips on the wheel and the wheel doesn't turn, s...o I dip my finger in water slightly to make my finger damp before using. The range of cooking options are good, although I tend to use the 4D hot air function the most. It does have a perfect bake setting, where you can pop a cake in the oven and the oven turns off when cake is done. I haven't been brave enough to use the function to the end of the cycle, you put your cake in a cold oven and turn on perfect bake. I did this but after an hour I got worried I would burn the cake so opened the oven door to check. As soon as you open the oven on this setting you end the bake and cannot get bake to perfect bake. My banana bread was actually underdone, but would have been perfect had I left it, the consistency was looking great and it wasn't burned, I just needed a bit more patience. I had to finish it on a normal bake setting. The meat probe function is great, you can set what internal temp you want and the oven will switch off when it reaches temp. You do need to be at home to take meat out of the oven or it will continue to cook due to warmth of the oven. The only issue we have with the meat probe is the position of where you plug it in inside the oven. They couldn't have picked a more awkward spot. I burn my hand every time I try to insert it (if I didn't insert from a cold oven). Also removing the probe is incredibly difficult due to positioning, so if I didn't burn my hand putting it in I certainly do taking it out. The digital display isn't great, I think again because of the wheel. You can also accidentally change the temp or the timer if you forget the click on temp or time before touching the wheel. Overall, we bought this oven mainly for its pyro function and the ability to put the oven racks in the oven while on pyro. This part of the oven is really very good and simple to use. You do need to clean out the ash at the end and the racks feel a little rougher than brand new, but they look good still. The area near the door hinges does get grubby and is hard to clean though. I don't think this oven is great value for money, and there are annoying parts to it, but it cooks well, has good functions and I especially the pyro setting. Unfortunately the door glass has discoloured slightly too.
Professional kitchenware, overwhelming technology but easy to use
This Bosch oven was an upgrade and has surprised us with all the high tech features and technology. It's so incredibly thorough in the little things that Bosch has thought of; from childproof locks on the doors, a way to tell if the oven is preheating or at it's optimal temperature, a way to cook for a certain amount of time and many different ways to cook. It feels like a professional oven in that there are many cooking options from slices, cakes, pizzas, meat, reheating, etc. I was and am still quite overwhelmed with what to use; but we tend to stick with a couple of features. Overall happy with the purchase and great value for money.

Fantastic alongside our Bosch compact oven with Microwave function.
Just to confirm our OVEN model is HBG675B.1B. Compact Oven with Microwave CMG633B.1B. Just LOVE our new appliances. Both my partner and I love cooking and have put it through its paces over the last couple of months. Soufflé, cakes, biscuits, thin apple tart, slow cooked Pork Belly with very crispy skin, slow roasted lamb shanks, beef cheeks, roasted veg, Pizza (our own base). We are still yet to use ALL features but all great so far. What we really appreciate is that we can use our "microwave" / compact OVEN when not needing a full size ov...en, saving both "heating" time and energy. The ovens also heat up nice and quickly. The majority of the time we have been using the 4D Hot air/Fan force option. Like the idea of the "Dry" setting you activate after using the microwave for lengthy cycles. Runs at 150C for 10min....to ensure the compartment is left dry so no moisture remains. We have found it very easy to use from day one. But we also made the effort to sit down right from the start and read the manuals. We are previous SMEG and Westinghouse owners and are very happy with our new Bosch double ovens.

Really happy with my two new ovens. They sit side by side in my kitchen and are fantastic! They heat-up very quickly and cook brilliantly. We were lucky to have a cash back offer on both ovens so they were really well priced. The only draw back was that I had to read the manual in order to work out how to use them - it was not an intuitive process. You also need to press the start button in order to change the settings - very much like hitting the enter key on a computer. But, overall, I am very happy. I think that these issues are minor as ovens these days are so much more sophisticated. I would have preferred to give a 4.5 out of 5 as I see this as a minor issue.
My Bosch oven heats up very quickly and heats food evenly, it is on the smaller side inside but works a treat, i love cooking cakes as they turn out perfect so far. I haven't tried the griller option as yet but the option is very simple and the oven is so easy to use.
Used the pyrolytic function to clean my oven it started to smoke burned my glass, I rang warranty they said I needed to clean the grease in oven first so what was the point of buying a self cleaning oven extremely disappointed very unhappy waste of money. Warranty dept were not helpful.
Is it worth the extra money?
I really love a lot of things with my new oven. The style is beautiful and easy to clean the outside without leaving marks like some others do. The sliding trays are really well worth it, it makes it so much easier to get things out of the oven. It cooks beautifully and the self clean sold me haha. The only thing that let me down was the oven is quite hard to learn to operate
Can be difficult to operate
Food cooking is good. Front panel can be cumbersome to operate. Item was purchased as a replacement for a Bosch device which had a PCU compromised by an adventurous cockroach. Product came with a $200 gift card. That took a couple of months to arrive. Easy to clean. Roasting the best feature so long as the food is covered with foil to facilitate convection.

Great quality, with loads of features
Brought this as a replacement oven in an established house I recently purchased. Having had high end German ovens in the past (Neff & AEG), I knew I wanted to stick to another German brand. Once I weighed out all of the features in this oven against the cost, the decision was easy.
Am yet to use all the features and settings, but the can say that the overall quality is excellent. Nice even heat, cooks extremely well with fast heat up times and appears to be super energy efficient.
I haven't run the pyrolytic function as yet, as there...hasn't been a need to (even after doing a couple of pork roast) the cavity has remained very clean. My one gripe with this oven would be the grill function, and the heat settings. Unlike my previous ovens, I'm not able to select a temperature with this function. Instead there's a low (1), Mid (2), or High (3) setting. I'm sure once I get used to it, it'll become second nature.
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.
