A brilliant European oven fully loaded
After I’m not sure how many years of putting up with an oven that was noisy, inconsistent with temperature and ever so slow, I went on the hunt for a new oven. I figured that whatever oven I got would have to better than what I currently had so my requirements were simple:
Fit in the original space
Be reasonably cheap
Hopefully be stainless steel
I decided to go to our local H/N factory outlet and see what they had in stock to get an idea of models, functions and prices etc, and the Scandium oven caught my eye. It certainly ticked all my pr...erequisites, but I’d never heard of that brand before. So after taking down the model number (as well as make/model numbers of about 8 other ovens), I went home to do a bit of online research and comparison. What I discovered is that the appliance is made in the Netherlands (it certainly looks very European) and it supposedly quite popular in Holland. It also had a ton of features that left the other ovens for dead. The H/N outlet were asking $399 for this oven which was insanely cheap (the next cheapest oven was a very basic white Westinghouse at $480), so naturally I was concerned that the quality was going to be subpar compared to the other ovens, but it came with a 36 month warranty, which was only equaled by $900+ Bosch ovens (there may have been some others, but not from what I could see). I also discovered several other retailers selling this model interstate for $699 (on special from $849), so I knew that the asking price was very cheap indeed. When I went back to the H/N outlet store and asked why it was so cheap, the salesperson told me that they had had it sitting on the floor to “too long” and it was the last one and that they just wanted it gone. So I took and gamble on it and purchased it.
