Great Oven that is simple to use
We renovated our kitchen and we wanted to purchase 'middle of the road' appliances that was within our budget. We can't recommend Kate @ E&S Chadstone enough. She was knowledgeable, patient and very helpful. After several brands we decided on Westinghouse and one of the reasons was that the ovens are made in South Australia. We bought two ovens side by side. The WVEP618DSC and this one - WVEP617DSC. They are similar in function except the 618 has Steam Assist & Touch Screen. Both ovens work exceptionally well and I tend to use the 617 model mo...re as it has a dial for the settings and a dial to set the temperature. Super Easy and it has a pizza cooking function! What more can I ask for? It's very easy to be dazzled by all the latest tech in ovens and if you are a gourmet cook, there are ovens that can do amazing things. If your used to cooking a particular way and want to continue that way, then the Westinghouse oven will do that. Both ovens have an Airfry setting and tray and work well. We haven't used the Pyrolytic Cleaning function as yet. These are great ovens that are easy to use. Just be mindful when installing the oven, they are a full size rectangular oven. There is no 'dip' in the back to allow for space for a the piping for a gas cooktop. Just make sure your measurements are correct. If you need to get through to Customer Service, well that takes a bit of time... (Maybe because everyone in Victoria was coming out of lockdown)

U need to download your own user manual! +Poor knowledge at retail distributor
With a price tag of well over $1000, I am amazed that the product doesn't even come with a user manual in the package. Funny that even relatively much less costly home appliances that I bought lately all have instruction manuals including my Smeg microwave, Cook4Me pressure cooker, Philips Airfryer. I have downloaded but they should have at least a easy reference booklet of some sort. I think Westinghouse is just not v customer focused. Also, it's strange that even the HN retail sales person does not know where to put/ fill the water for the s...team assist function to work! Apparently I dont see the point of buying at the shop and just bought online instead! If u like the product, Westinghouse expects u to support yourselves from downloading your manual to reading all details to find out how to operate it!! In the meantime after almost half a year, I am still scrambling with minor troubleshooting (even the manual now downloaded is not very helpful!) So beware! All DIY!! or be prepared for long waiting time ringing up support desk! As for my next purchase I will definitely put other manufacturers first who are more caring.
