Love this oven
I bought this oven to match the steam shot oven also from Siemens that was already in our kitchen. I'd had a Panasonic combi microwave that I loved but the laser packed up when the oven was barely 5 years old and exactly the same thing had happened to my father's a few months before and at exactly the same age so I swore off that model forever. I chose the full size model over the 45cm combi as it was 2/3rds the price :crazy:.
While the microwave is lower powered than most these days at only 900W and some foods take a little longer to cook, ...that's just a matter of getting used to using the oven and planning accordingly. The combi function works well, great baked potatoes in their jackets in 30 mins (25 on combi and 5 on normal oven), speeds up all sorts of other cooking too. Menus are pretty useless in reality, for example the roast leg of lamb doesn't go up in size nearly enough for our big Aussie lambs so I've given up trying to use them and just cooked by time like in "the olden days". The pyrolitic feature works perfectly/ I has an upside down caramel cake boil over with caramel burnt on everywhere. Ran full clean function (2 hours) and all it needed was of wipe the ash out with a damp cloth. It's really good too for the racks, they are the same as the steam shot oven so racks and trays can go backwards and forwards at will (but trays can't be in when using it as a straight microwave). The biggest gripe I have is that the single wheel to change the timer is very frustrating, it takes lots of effort to set lengthy cooking times. Ok for the oven functions and the temperatures but a pain in the proverbial for the timer. Whomever designed this never used it in real life.
Questions & Answers
Having trouble baking cakes, not cooking in the middle and raising then sinks. Not sure what function to use. Cake function, not finding reliable, it’s confusing!
Thanks for the question regarding your Siemens HM676G0S1A Oven.
You can find full cooking instructions for different types of cakes on page 46-47 of the appliance user manual. As an example for a sponge cake in a cake/ring tin, we recommend the Hotair eco function on 140-160 degrees for 60-80 minutes.
