Poor Design and Expensive Pyrolytic First Use
The oven seemed to work ok for the first year or two. However on the first pyrolytic clean it failed. The overheating thermo switch at the rear of the oven failed and as a result the main circuit board appears to have failed as well. The thermo switch failure caused the oven door to lock closed and the oven to completely stop working. The door could only be unlocked by removing the oven completely and dismantling the unit to trace the fault. Unfortunately the oven was one month out of the two year warranty. Experience with F&P warranty (not thi...s oven) in the past has been very poor. The thermo switch is about $8, but I've yet to price the main circuit board, but would expect around $300 or more. The oven may be OK for general cooking, haven't tried the rotisserie yet, but I think it is an expensive and poor design compared to say Bosh.
Purchased in April 2018 for A$3,200.00.
Great oven,just love it.Tested the temperature and it is correct.So easy to read,no silly little signs to follow,lights up,easy to use and even clean!
Recommended it to sister and she bought the 7 option model and she is not so enthralled with that
Love it, so simple to use
Although once the oven was installed I was a bit angry that the manual told you so little about how to cook with it, once I had a go at using it and trying the different settings, it really is so easy to use that you dont need a manual.
I've read other review that complain about the time to preheat, I think it is really quick. I've cooked a variety of food from usesing the rotisserie to cooking cakes and pavlova and everything has worked out beautiful. So happy I bought the 90cm version, great for grills for a few more than 2 people and great for cooking roask veg and meet side by side
Best oven ever!
This is the best oven I have used, and after 45 years in the kitchen, I have used quite a few, including all the European brands. I bought it about a month before Christmas, so the real test was the pavlova: cooked perfectly to the minute. Everything I have cooked so far (haven't tried the rotisserie) has been recipe perfect, including gluten free recipes that in the old oven were hit and miss.
The well lit display doesn't require me to find my glasses to read the cooking method; there is no ambiguity with tiny pictures, just a brilliant choice of cooking methods with an easy turn dial, so no pressing combinations of buttons. So quiet you hardly know it is on, except for the cockpit standard display!
I can't fault it; just love it!!
