Nothing comes close to this exceptional oven
This is my first review for this site. I'm reviewing for two reasons - to give credit to an exceptional product and to connect with serious cooks who may be contemplating purchasing a Falcon Classic Deluxe. I have now had this dream oven in my kitchen for 4 months and have put it through its paces. I cook dinner for my family every evening and I bake sweets, cakes and treats at least 4 times a week. I've had excellent ovens from Gaggenau and Miele in the last 12 years, but the Flacon Deluxe is truly exceptional.
The visual style of the oven s...uits all but the most futuristic or antiseptic kitchens. Behind the stylish facade are two versatile and spacious ovens. Both ovens reach heat within minutes - the rapid response function on the left side oven seems almost unnecessary considering I get to 180 degrees in under 5 minutes when using just the normal fan-forced option. I have had to mentally recalibrate the time it takes to cook everything, considering the speed at which my actual cooking now starts. The baking tray attached to the left door seems such a simple innovation, and it makes quick basting a breeze. No longer do I use the microwave to defrost meat from the freezer. I use the Falcon defrost setting and I don't have to worry about the microwave cooking the edges of my defrosting meat, leaving the inside a solid block of ice. Pizzas and home-made bread crisp evenly from below. Parmigiana and dishes that require a crispy topped finish benefit from the internal grill function. The smaller top right hand grill is awesome for healthier sausages and chops, and grilling salmon is a delicious alternative to using a frypan. The importing company was helpful on the telephone when I had initial queries, and the rep in Perth at the time (Aaron) provided exceptional service during installation. Let's face it; if you're here reading reviews of the Falcon range, you're a serious cook, willing to spend serious money on an investment for yourself and your family. You will not be disappointed if a Falcon Deluxe is delivered to your home.
Purchased in July 2019.
Awesome stove, works beautifully, easy to clean.
Expensive stove, but worth it, and the only one we could find with gas grill. We are off grid so needed just gas. Only things that would be an improvement is if you could turn and push the knobs to make starting with one hand an option - at the moment you need to turn and push the gas button then push another ignition button. Also, need to be able to remove the rack that fits under the grill to enable you to put another dish in there, than the one provided. Still an awesome stove and really delighted with it.
Purchased in January 2019 at Harvey Norman for $8,500.00.
I love this oven. I've been waiting to get one for years and finally bit the bullet.
I love all aspects of this oven. Easy to clean, temperature perfect. Looks great in a country kitchen. Would have liked a glass view window for the side oven, didn't realise how useful it is to see things while cooking. Definitely recommend this oven to anybody who is a serious cook.
We all love our Falcon. The quality, versatility and effectiveness of the oven fantastic. Being able to use multiple ovens a the same time for a roast is a great. The gas cook top with hotplate and wok attachment is very useful. The Black oven looks great withe the range hood.
Best investment I made for my kitchen
I was a little worried about purchasing this oven and I had not heard of the brand before - but it suited the style of house we have and seemed like better quality when I compared it to brands that looked similar when I tested it in the show room. I've now had it installed for around 6 months and i can honestly say its the bees knees and if i ever move I will buy a falcon again. Not only is it the showstopper everyone asks about when they come into the kitchen becuase of how good it looks, its functional to boot. The 2 ovens make cooking so flexible and the burner area is really easy to clean compared to my old gas oven. You wont regret dropping your money into this fantastic oven
Beautiful great oven
Lovely looking oven that functions beautifully easy to clean and keep clean. This oven is definitely a focal point in any kitchen. Do check you have enough power coming into the house as the wattage is very high and needs special expensive cabling to hard wire. Otherwise it is wonderful.
Best stove ever
Love my Falcon stove, moving house soon and I cant take it with me, I bought the dual fuel option and I love the gas on the top as it so easy to get the temperatures you want and the ease of an electric oven for cleaning.
Havent had any issues with keeping the top clean either. One oven is fan forced the other is regular, its great for parties or xmas time too. It has a built in timer mode so you can set and forget.
The Joy of the Kitchen
I really researched getting my cooker. I have a small kitchen and was thrilled to get two ovens, a separate grilled and five burners. Plus, my stove is in a stunning Cranberry that brightens the kitchen. The ovens cook evenly and quickly. The burners can be moderated easily and everything cleans easily. It is a pleasure having so much cooking opportunity in a small space and to have wow factor.
looks great, works fine, but probably not worth the money
This oven looks great, that's probably the first thing that leads you to choose a Falcon. The SMEG also looks fabulous but they didn't offer induction and I'd heard they weren't as good.
The induction cooktop has cracked once in the first year. A pot was magnetically stuck and I twisted it, resulting in a tiny crack that grew across the top. This was replaced under warranty. (Next time I will be sure to video this if it happens again as the repairman, (and my husband!) was skeptical.)
The two ovens are handy but I do miss having a wider o...ven. I guess you can't really have both. Perhaps if I'd had a bigger oven I'd be wanting the ability to cook savoury and sweet items in separate ovens? The smaller size of the ovens means they preheat quite quickly. The grill at the back catches food and there's no way to clean down there (except when you're having the whole top replaced!). This is a concern and I'm considering using alfoil or something when I cook to cover them up. The griller is a waste of space as we rarely use it, and when we do we manage to burn everything.
Questions & Answers
are the rings around the outside of the burners aluminium. I find al very hard to keep shiny !
I use the cheapest soap-infused steel wool scrubbers from the supermarket. Steelo brand. They keep the aluminium rings shiny and clean.
Thank you for your enquiry and apologies for the delay.
We can also recommend using Autosol, a metal polish that can be purchased from hardware and auto stores.

To me that seems a bit lame... why not use a more robust material (cast? stainless? nonstick?)
Our kitchen benches are taller than standard so I was wondering if the oven could be monted on a plinth to match the bench height?
Yes ousr had to be mounted on marine ply which is quite thick.
Thank you for enquiring about the installation of a Falcon Classic Deluxe cooker. Unfortunately the cooker cannot be mounted into a plinth/base as per the installation instructions. The cooker does have adjustable legs though and the height can be adjusted to 930mm if required.

Hey Guys absolutely love my Classic Deluxe 90 Dual Fuel Royal Blue Cooker just have a question with what diameter pot size goes on the largest burn ring (also wok burner)? I thought my stock pot/saute pan was large enough but when I put them on the burner the gas ignites but then goes out? await your reply Marina
Thank you for your questions and allowing an opportunity to respond.
Make sure that the flames are under the pans. Using a lid will help the contents boil more quickly. Large pans should be spaced well apart. Pans and kettles with concave bases or down-turned base rims should not be used. You should also avoid using unstable and misshapen pans that may tilt easily, and pans with a very small base diameter, e.g. milk pans, single egg poachers. The minimum recommended pan diameter is 120mm. The maximum allowable pan base diameter is 260mm. Do not use cooking vessels on the hotplate that overlap the edges.
If the above is being followed and the issue with the flame going out continues, please contact us on 1300 650 020 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your Falcon order number and serial number.
