Bad choice. Find another brand.
Had another brand for 10 years - so long I can't remember the brand. It got worked to death and was the most useful appliance in the kitchen. Temp and timer controls were positive and precise. Eventually, a switch failed so in Oct '20 Mthr-inlaw bought us a Sunbeam, assuming they're all much the same. And anyway, it was the only brand available at Good Guys and Bi Rite.
That first one had a really imprecise temperature dial. We had no idea what the temp was as the switch 'floated' with at least a 20degree variation; eg 160-180, 200-225, etc, et...

Didn't last long
Good little unit used it 5 times and then the fan died. The fan didn't stop while it was in use either, we only noticed the next day when we went to use it again. Pretty disappointing.
Puzzled when temperature is reached
Bought my nutrioven CO3000 about 6 weeks ago, so dont know whether this is a fault, but I have no idea when the temperature I select is reached as the temperature light just doesnt go out. But having said that - I will switch on to the 240 temp, after 15 mins I will slowly dial back to see if I can find how far temp has reached, but I can reach the minimum and light is still showing on as if it hasnt even reached the lowest (150) mark Can some one enlighten me please.

The bowl has an enormous crack in it..
I bought my Nutri Oven in January,all was fine until the bowl developed a huge crack. I have bought a much cheaper K-Mart convection oven in the past and it lasted for years.I tried calling and I have tried to email you without success,I am very disappointed.
Purchased in January 2020 at The Good Guys.
First time use. Roast chicken and vegies. Followed the roasting instructions to the letter. After about 30 minutes the chicken was almost burnt. Turned it down to 150 for the remainder of the recommended time for a 1.8kg chicken. Vegies were perfect after the last 40 minutes. Had I not turned it down it would have been charcoal chicken...literally.
Purchased in March 2019 for $100.00.
Just got the oven, and was assured anything you baked in the oven you could bake in this appliance. Baked a fruit cake. Took twice as long and had a stodgy bottom. Was very disappointed as it was a Christmas cake as a present for an elderly friend. It was cooked in a conventional tin at the recommended temp.
First time i have used it, holes in handle trap food, and a hassle to clean out, no visible marking on knob so you can be out by 180 degrees,how much would a line of black or red ink have cost?. mine never got to 250 after half an hour i shoved in the chicken breast pulled it out after 20 minutes, it was brown looked good but was dried out, one of the rubber feet came out, not impressed by it, only good thing is it is easier than the oven to clean
the machine was broken down
I have a problem with the oven. it is because I bought it for 03-2016(2 years ago), but I had moved the house so I left it into the another and have not used yet. So the first time I used it 3 months ago( 3/2018) amd it was working well.But the second time was so bad, The timer is still working, but the degree was not. I do not know what was happenning. Even the grill is still very new.
I know it is more than 1 year so I can not return it back.
But I do not understand why It was happen like that!
Can you please give me some idea about it.?.?
Bubbles in the glass bowl
Have had one for 18 months- Lucky A? The cracking bowls- these things are made to a price- not to a standard- look at your bowls- they have bubbles in the glass- they can't be "pyrex-"- i saw that in mine when i bought it- and wondered if this may be an issue. i mean- 78.00 i see them advertised on the coast- i paid 120 remotely, and man how can we expect 10 years from 78.00?...My issue is with the switch, however, and am trawling through how other folk are faring ....R
Does the job
My mum purchased this for me as a Christmas present when I was living in a unit with a terrible oven and this helped so much with making meals. Easy to use and cooks things perfectly, just not the easiest to set up, clean and dismantle. Would recommend for anyone in a similar situation
Hi when cooking coconut and raisin bread it burns on the top before it cooks. Just wondering what I am doing wrong as I have it on the right temperature and the ink is coming off the guages so I think that is quite bad. so when cooking you are not going to know what time or temperature is and ir does not tell you when the oven is heated so you have to guess Thanks Barbara
Not sure yet
I was given this as a birthday present. My only problem is the thermostat. It's very hard to get it too temperature and keep in there. The light doesn't seem to go off so I never know when it has reached temperature. I think it needs a proper gage on top. I don't know where it was purchased as it was a gift.
Oven failed to work after the first use, machine was dead when we went to use it for the second time, it was replaced without fuss but hope the replacement lasts longer
Very noisy, rattly fan
Fan startling rattling after first week & is so loud it's unbearable even when in the next room. Nice roasts, best chicken wings & snack foods but best to get to know your machine & not rely on recipes which result in burnt food. Should've paid the extra & got a better oven. Think I'll try to return it.
It was great til tonight when it cracked while cooking!
Have had this for sometime now. Loved it until tonight. Cooking a roast dinner and heard a crack sound. Didn't know what it was ignored it. The timer went off so I proceeded to go to serve dinner to find that the glass bowl had cracked and broken in 2. The only thing keeping it together was the base it sat on. Not very happy. Do have photos to show. Cannot find the receipt therefore have put this date just to submit. Can probably get the receipt from the good guys
Do NOT follow the heating instructions
This was a gift from my husband. As a foodie, I had been looking to try this when we travel on the road. But what a disaster. The small 1kg roast pork recipe saw burned outside and very undercooked inside. (Req 200C) The roast veggies were so overcooked they were almost inedible. As a disaster, it rated right up there with some of the results I had as a young teenager over 40 years ago. I'll experiment with it, because I don't like anything beating me, but it is glaringly obvious that whoever wrote the recipes for the book provided for it nev...er tested them. I also cooked the big breakfast, which was fine because I watched that like a hawk... but as for roasts; not happening. I'm a little afraid to try other mains because of the extent of getting it so wrong.
higher prices than others but does the same job
I bought this from Myer ($85) to replace my old from from Harris Scarfe (used 4 years, $39). First impression is - they are the same.
same dial, same function, same design.
One thing that I don't like about Sunbeam is it doesn't have any "light" in the oven. So you can't really see too clearly if the area is not bright enough.
I have only used the Sunbeam for 2 days, so far so good. It does the job but so did my cheap one from HS.
I will report back in 6 month time to see how it is travelling.
When it works its Great!! BUT!!!
Last time I used it,after maybe only 7 or so uses, it appears the fan in the cooking lid unit packed it in.
Got smoke from the cooking lid,obviously the cooker section was overheating.
Its out of warranty now,so not much one can do.
Servicing in australia can now cost as much as the product cost originally,still i'm not willing to cough up another 190 bucks for another new replacement.
OK but deteriorated very quickly.
I wrote a review on another brand that died within 18 months and this unit is nearing that vintage. It is working OK but the heat markings have worn off (common problem) and it came minus a silicone plug that helped steady the bowl on the unit. This was actually needed as the whole unit would vibrate t certain times but do you think I could get any sense out of Sunbeam? No way. They initially replied that they had a unit in their work kitchen but the support staff said he wrecked it trying to get it out. He just pulled at it and sheared off the...flange at one end. Didn't think to push it out! This led to many emails and they had no idea and just stopped replying to me. The concept of these bench top ovens is brilliant and the Sunbeam unit is OK but I wouldn't buy another. Plus if you have a problem good luck with getting any sense from their 'technical' staff.
Ok if you are desperate
I bought this item,as my wall oven was unrepairable, and I was trying to avoid buying a new one until I had the kitchen completely renovated. Unfortunately it is not really good enough. You can't fit much in if you are trying to bake something on a rack ( e.g. 6 muffins at a time only or one very small frozen pizza) and things burn on the top and undercook on the bottom ( even on setting and rack position as per instruction book). I did try a number of recipes and different settings, but it was next to impossible to get it right, so in the end ...I gave up and bought the wall oven. As a result, I never tried to cook a roast in it like the claim on the box, but it also says you can bake in it and you really can't. On the up side it heats up quickly and comes with enough accessories to use it for many functions so if you had to have a bench top compact item, and you had the time and patience to learn how to avoid burning the top of things, it's OK for the price.
Questions & Answers
Is the cooking element hallogen?
No it isn't sorry.
Thank you glad to hear it is not halogen
As I have already returned the item I can't be sure but I don't think it was halogen. Whatever it was, I'm glad I don't have to guess the temperature every time. My new Anko works much better and cost $45!
Can I cook a Turkey Roll wrapped in alfoil in the Cooker?
Yes you can cook Turkey in the CO3000 cook on between 65-75 degree's & for around 25-30 minutes.
However please don't use foil as it can restrict the airflow. We do say not to use oven bags or silicone bakeware either.
Went to use my new nutriOven for the second time to cook a roast. Lined the base with alfoil and turned oven up to 250c within 7mins I heard a pop,turned around and the lid had shattered! How could this happen when I’ve followed instructions to the T. No mishandling at all. Very disappointing.
I have just sent you a private message of you could kindly respond via this please.
Would like to make it clear that only the BASE of the bowl was lined with alfoil before placing the bottom rack in position,so absolutely no contact was made between the alfoil and fan causing a restriction on airflow.
