Great oven, we bought this oven 8 months ago from the Good Guys and so far it has been perfect. The internal lights are very good, they provide a great view of the meals while being cooked. Very consistent cooking performance with a variety of meals, also reheating, grilling and defrosting food.
Waste of money
The light had rusted and burnt out then blew out.... electrolux and the manufacturer didnt want to know about it claiming that its wear and tear cooking my food in higher temperatures.... then what made it worse is the griller burnt out within 12 months and to get that replaced was going to cost around $350 including call out fees..... the whole bloody thing cost me $390... so what a waste of money to get it repaired when I can buy a new one but different brand.... load of rubbish.... unreliable
Best Pork Crackling!!
This oven has replaced an awful Ariston that was about ten years old.
There is great width for two trays, lots of light and consistent results so far. Very quiet and little heat release/escape.
Most used function is the fan forced - roast pork twice now with all over, crispy crackle. Baked a couple of cakes with normal oven and these have been evenly cooked. Roast veggies perfect.
For $850 I cannot complain...
Worst appliance I've ever owned
I paid $1500 for an oven which is worse than the 25 year old oven it replaced. Comes with 10 settings, none of which cook food in the recommended time or temperature.
A roast meant to take an hour at 200 degrees takes two hours at 220. Oven chips are still cold and soggy after 30 minutes. Fruit pie is cold and hard in the middle after 55 minutes at 180 fan forced rapid heat (suggested setting, but 30 degrees hotter than recommended). Lamb chops grey and tough after being under the grill.
I was so excited to get my new oven and it has disappo...
Excellent oven and very easy to use. For someone who had not had very much experience with the oven I found it very easy to use with the different functions. It heats up very quickly and has a number of settings to suit every occasion. Great for baking cakes and large roasts.

Great going so far
Consistent cooking and very spacious . Very good value for money. Tried cakes, roasts, pizzas,sausage rolls, cookies and meatloaf. Very satisfied overall with the performance of this oven. The rapid heat function really helps putting the final touches. The various fan options - top only bottom only or both are very handy too. The digital display for cooking time i.e. start time and end time could have been made a little simpler but really cant fault it so far. If you do get a lot of meat fat debris charred on to the trays then its a bit of effort getting them out but this is not too different from many oven i know. Overall a great buy!

Solid Build, Modern Stylish, Cooks Well, All the features you need
What can I say, apart from I LOVE this oven. With Decent cooking capacity 73L, 2 wire shelves, 1 baking tray and grill tray which is more than enough to cook multiple items. Love the large knobs to select cooking function and temperature, and has an overall high quality feel, unlike other brands (Fisher & Paykel, Bosch to name a couple) in the same price range i was comparing with. 3 oven lamps is the best thing I love about this oven. 1 at the back top for grilling, 1 on the right side half way down and 1 on the left 3/4 way down. One thing I ...really dislike is not being able to see how the food is cooking, having 3 lamps makes me really happy! 2 Telescopic runners are brilliant, 1 for grill tray and 1 halfway down for wire shelf or baking tray. Both telescopic runners allow the shelf and tray to be pulled all the way out making for easy access, and easily glide back in them back in with small push. Cooking - I've had a few hits and misses. I find at lower cooking temperatures its spot on to what the recipe recommends, but at higher temperatures I find I have to bump it up a little more (10 degrees) to match recommended cooking time. But overall this oven cooks evenly, even with 2 different items at the same time. I have tried most of the cooking functions, and for the first time ever I actually use each function to cook whatever the item is as per recommended function. 99% of the time with previous ovens I've always just selected Fan Force because I find other functions didn't cook as well. But with this oven I have found each function works even better to match the item I'm cooking. To finish up - When comparing to similar priced brands I believe this oven is far superior. Look and feel, build quality, number of useable functions, 2 telescopic shelves, 3 lamps and even cooking ticked all the boxes. After researching ovens for 2 months before I purchased this brand and model, I could not find any other brand in similar price range that could offer all of these features.
Highly recommend. good value for money. Great consistency with the heat throughout the oven. Everything we have cooked has been a success. much better than any other oven we have previously owned. They even gave us a bonus baking dish with the purchase worth over $120. Purchased from Harvey Norman.
Questions & Answers
Sliding shelves pop out automatically, seems to be a regular problem, any idea how to fix
Hi there, we recently bought an Electrolux evep616sc 60cm . after some advice please .the top sliding shelf which has the grill plate on seems to slide out slowly when we open the oven door. this may be a problem when grilling as opening the door allows the grill plate to move outward. is there something we are doing wrong or have incorrecly installed ?
We have not had this problem with ours. I’d be talking to the supplier about this for sure.
All the best
Just purchase our oven which was installed today. The first time I tried to use it the top sliding rack came out almost burning me as I tried to put the baking tray on the lower shelf. I’m a little concerned as I have now seen this problem pop up on some reviews. I haven’t seen a solution yet. I have sent this issue to Electrolux support today. Awaiting reply. I’ll you know when or if I hear back.
The light stays on while cooking. How can I turn it off?
