I bought this oven believing it would be better than my old Westinghouse that I have had for about 20 years.
Unfortunately I am finding that making in particular biscuits that they don’t bake very even at all. Have to constantly be watching them and turning them and changing the shelves while baking. I am very disappointed as I waited a long time to get a new oven and now I sometimes wish I had the old one back.
Cooking roasts and vegetables is good but not baking biscuits in particular.
Also the vent is at the front of the oven so blows hot air into the kitchen.
Probably would try a different brand if I ever have the opportunity of buying a new one again.
Very disappointing paid top price for Pyrolic ofen
It does not cook food evenly I am satisfied with the design but. Performance wise I find it not as good as my previous oven.
The lower oven burns when you grill.
Pyrolytic by name and pyrolytic by function
Really disappointed with the lower oven which acts like a furnace with pastry - runs way too hot (especially from the base) and torches pastry (on the base) in three quarters of the required cooking time. I have used other wall ovens and not had an issue but in my opinion, the Electrolux EVEP626SD is best used for cooking vegetables or for melting lead or other metals (... is that what it was originally intended for?). The base of this strawberry galette was completely burnt, at the recommended temperature (200 degrees) in 3/4 of its suggested cooking time. This is not the first torched bake and I would not recommend this oven to anyone.
Bought the oven paying well over other brands to get the exciting facilities! However, straight off, how on earth do you use the grill? The instruction book is adamant that you must grill with the door closed but if you do, then the thermostat cuts off the grill when its reaches temperature so that you cannot grill anymore. If you attempt to leave the door open, the grill stays on as it should but the heat coming out the front if the door opening trips the temperature safety with and the whole oven unit switches off until it has cooled. In effect, this product is not fit for purpose and hopeless if you intend to do any grilling.

Excellent! Love this oven!
Went in store and was up sold this oven and so glad we were. It has all the settings we would need, very user friendly, and has great safety functions such as cooling down mode and not hot to touch from the outside when on. Best oven we’ve had in terms of double oven where you really can cook two totally seperate meals perfectly.
After putting up with our very old gas oven for many years, this oven is a delight. The functions are clear (no interpreting symbols) and easy to use. Everything I have cooked in it so far has turned out beautifully, and I'm thrilled to be able to bake cakes again that aren't burned on the edges and undercooked in the middle. I like the telescopic runners (however, I would prefer them installed on different rack levels, but haven't found an easy way of removing them) so that I don't have to lean in to the oven. The smaller double oven is great and more efficient for just the two of us. I couldn't be happier with the oven.
Purchased in October 2018.
Purchased this oven after looking at many models. Chose this one for easy slide roast/grill trays to avoid difficult rack pull out to check on food status. Perfect for cooking roast and adding veg etc. Stylish look and great cooking features. For middle of range price, this is a great oven And is very easy to clean. Very happy with purchase.
Perfect - incredibly easy to use - even has temp probe for roasts
Love it - has so many preset cook settings (Roast/Casserole/Pizza/Pie - Fan bake - Fan Grill and more)....easy to adjust temp - two individual ovens that can be used at the same time. Top features more functions but bottom certainly offers what you need as a second. Racks pull out on extended struts so very stable. Baking dishes/ roast trays/ grill trays/ temerature probe just wonderful....these are not extras but included with the oven. Temp probe even better as it is electronic and switches oven off when internal temperature reached....so easy to use. Recommended - even tells you when a clean is due and that is beyond easy too.
It's pyrolytic, tells you when you need to put it on a pyrolytic clean. It comes with telescopic runners which enable the shelves to slide out smoothly on runners.
It has many functions for baking. Fast heat up and it's a double oven.
I am not sure whether any oven I have had browns evenly to perfection, I just switch my tray around.
The display is bright and clear.
Browning the top
The oven is great but biscuits never brown on the top no matter where I position the slide in the oven. The double oven is 5he best idea since sliced bread. With 2 I constantly use the lower oven. Easy controls and no thee problems in the 8 years we have had the oven.
Buzzer volume on EVE models too quiet - would not recommend
We were so excited to finally make the investment in an Electrolux oven and it has many great features (heats quickly, grills golden and cleans) but unfortunately the deal breaker is the buzzer volume, as others have also commented. Although under Settings the volume can be adjusted up to Volume 10, even that volume is impossible to hear outside of the kitchen. Effectively, it makes it useless for doing any timed baking (which is most things). Other reviewers have pointed out this problem as well and Electrolux haven't offered any solution to fixing the inaudibility problem. So unfortunately despite some great features, do not buy any of these models if you rely on an oven timer.
Double the baked goods
We really love the double oven.
We've used both ovens plenty of times simultaneously and separately to justify the inclusion into our new kitchen.
Being able to cook two things at different temperatures has been great, especially when having friends and family come over for dinner. E.g. Mains in the big oven and Dessert in lower oven.
If we are only cooking something small we'll just use the smaller lower oven.
The self-cleaning pyrolytic function is great, although the first time we used that feature it was quite smokey and set off the smoke alarms in the house... nothing a bit more regular cleaning wouldn't fix though ;-)
Graet helper at kitchen
This oven is very spacious has lot of racks . With pyrotic cleaning function very easy to clean afterwards. I had a little issue with the light. I had to replace it two times. Except it is excellent. Has pre programs to assist with cooking too .excellent product . It heats up very fast

this is a great oven with a easy to use display.heats quickly and fan is super quiet. The soft close doors are good and we use the cook from frozen feature a lot. So far all the food we have decided to cook has come out great and we are happy with the oven.
Wish we hadn't bought it!
Not happy can't cook in the bottom oven, as everything burns, even though I have reduced the temperature by 20deg, and shifted the cooking shelf to the top position, I had to turn the scones over to get any colour on the top.
We have had the oven over 3 months and it still hasn't been sorted.
Amazing, didn't know what we did before it!!
This oven is the best one we have owned by far.
Cooks perfectly every time with no hot spots.
The half oven is extremely handy for putting on a tray of biscuits or cooking desert whilst the roast is on in the main.
Pyrolytic function works a treat and brings it up spot on every time.
Very Good Double Oven
Both ovens are multi function and both have an auto reminder when time to clean your oven. Simply remiove the shelves and shelf supports - select the clean oven function..... then wait until the cycle is completed and wipe out the soot. Pretty good!
I find both ovens to be fairly accurate with temperatures and more than happy with the cooking results.
I love the telescopic shelves - saves me stretching in.... no more burnt wrists!

Feature packed oven, great results
This oven replaced our 17 year old De Longhi double oven and our only regret is that we didn't upgrade sooner!
This oven includes features that the Europeans charge extra for as standard, like telescopic runners, quad glazed doors and pyrolysis cleanin on both ovens - not just the main oven as I have seen on some more expensive Euro ovens. The user interface is slick and intuitive and both my wife and I were able to operate it without consulting the manual - again, something the Italian manufacturers in particular need to take note of.
I ...do have some criticisms - the aforementioned telescopic runners are a little flimsy and indeed one was broken on delivery of the oven. Electrolux replaced this at no cost however. Also, I would like the option to install the runners at different shelf positions, which cannot be done. Overall, we are very happy with the performance of our new oven and are baking a lot more than before - everything seemed too hard with the old De Longhi. If you are looking for a double oven, put this one on your shortlist.
Great oven, modern brush steel finish.
This oven is quite well built and is modern in design. This oven was bought brand-new and has been used quite regularly. The great feature about this oven is that the set temperature is reached quite rapidly and maintains that temperature easily. There are many features of this oven, but my favourite is the start and stop time.
Perfect cooking oven. Looks great and many wonderful functions
Perfect cooking oven. Looks great and many wonderful functions. Double oven is a great feature. The customer service has been exceptional and I bought the extended warranty from Electrolux as I would be dealing with them direct and not a store or third party. They even open on Saturday's. Australian made and came from the factory in Adelaide.
