Really happy with this oven
We can't install an electric oven (apart from the very cheapest ones coming in at under 10 Amp), so had to replace our previous gas oven with another gas one. Really limited choice. Seemed to come down to Ilve, Euromaid or Westinghouse. Decided for a few reasons (including where the oven was built) to go with the Westinghouse WVG615G. Really glad we did. It if fantastic. Can't fault it. Looks good (esp in white rather than SS), works well, not a single issue with it in the 8 months we have had it (except after the power had been off once - ...it wouldn't light when the power came back on, but then found out that you have to set the clock again for all of the controls to kick in). Glad we bought this model, with the integrated grill, rather than the alternative with a separate grill (WVG655G). There haven't been any times when I needed to be both grilling and baking at the same time, and having the grill in the oven offers you the option of 'fan grill' which has been really useful in browning things while finishing off baking them. And glad we got this one with the electronic clock rather than the cheaper model with just a timer. This one has the option of delayed start and auto shut down, not to mention that it looks much better and doesn't cost a lot more. While being COVID housebound, having the oven turn itself on and off is not really needed, but it was useful pre-COVID when we were out and wanted dinner cooked when we got back. It used daily and cooks well and pretty evenly, heats up reasonably quickly, is fairly quiet although you can hear the cooling fan a bit, glass door stays cool, good view of what is cooking due to the large window and good lighting. And we were happy with the installation from Appliances Online. We paid extra to have it installed because it was replacing an oven that was a different size, so needed a cabinet maker to make some adjustments as well as the normal gas fitter who comes out to do the installation. Their price for all this was OK. Removed the old oven for no cost, whereas some other retailers charged for that bit.
Buttons wear off not made with quality
I have used over around 30 times as i use air fryer for most meals. The buttons within the first year have faded. Manufacture warrenty is only 2 years which suggests poor quality. Stay Away from westinghouse as you will be disappointed
Purchased in October 2018 for A$1,499.00.
Brand new and shiney
Wow the oven is easy to use , the controls are easy to understand and the oven size is perfect inside for all type of baking trays, oven is easy to wipe out after cooking
Purchased in May 2019 for A$600.00.
Overall I'm pretty happy with this oven the features are great easy to use easy to clean .It cooks food well with no problems the heat seems to work well the only bad side is i can feel hot air coming from the top of door this needs to be fixed . Cooks food evenly.

Good oven replacing an older model
The renovation of our kitchen prompted us to look at replacing our existing Westinghouse under bench gas oven which had given us reliable service for around fourteen years. This oven was still going strong but was looking a little tired. As there are few choices to be had for gas under bench gas ovens, we looked again at what Westinghouse had on offer. The new oven is superior to the original in the operation of the electronic timer and the way the oven is started. Now with touch controls the new timer is far easier to operate. This oven has...piezo ignition which lights instantly and is superior to the older ignitor system. The burner is much better now and is placed out of the way beneath a metal cover which means there is a reduced tendency for any stray edge of a piece of baking paper to catch alight. The oven is a little slower to heat than the older model but we are very happy with the way it cooks. The electric grill works well. The new design of oven door means the outside remains cool to touch. Overall we are very happy with this oven and hope we get a similar life from it as we did from the old one.
Bought two of these for our recently built new home. Super easy to use. One dial selects the cooking mode (these do actually make a difference), the other the temperature. The different modes do actually pre select different temps so really you only need the one dial. Timer is easy to use also. Just goes to show appliances don't need to be complicated.
Good oven! Roasts well!
The Westinghouse 615 oven has many function setting which help you decide on how your food should be cooked, for example, bake/pizza and defrost modes. The oven also has a screen that has a clock and timer so you can time how long your food is in the oven. The oven cooks the food well and makes really good roasted vegetables. Perfect for a Christmas Roast!
Very good Oven
We had a old oven and was time to replace. Was fine for something in same dimension but we worried it might be compact as the old one but to our surprise there was lot of room inside.
It cooks very even and fast. The only problem is if you go close to it u can feel heat coming out.
Good oven, over priced.
We found this Westinghouse oven to be stylish and cooks really well. It seems to take a few goes to ignite when it hasn't been used for a while. I found the lack of gas wall ovens to pick from made our choice easy, but I must say I feel it was overpriced.
Very nice oven
Very efficient oven. The grill heats quickly although the oven itself for bake, fan bake, rapid heat do take a little while to heat. So be prepared to wait a little while for a pre heat. Once heated dynamo!
Bakes evenly. No need to turn the item around for even browning and cooking.

Hot air from oven door
I have lived with very hot air coming from the oven door - thinking this was normal. The oven was installed less than 12 months ago. The oven actually heats the kitchen and created a very hot kitchen in hot summer months. Is there something wrong with this oven? IT was ordered from Winnings in Sydney, and delivered in September 2016. I'd love to hear from Westinghouse about this issue... as I am not satisfied with this situation at all.
Very good product
Oven has good space. Can cook 2 big cakes. Has finger print resistance. I made few cakes all of them were good. Time was less than the other ovens. I can make dinner for family in no time. Energy consumption was good. No black marks on pan. Easy to clean.
Love this oven
My Westinghouse gas oven works brilliantly, easy to use dials no electronic clocks. Oven always cooks really well, our roast are done to perfection, and I love the fan force option. We even do pizzas in the oven and they come out with a perfect base. We are so glad we changed to gas cooking. especially with a Westinghouse oven.
Good but tenants wrecked it
Good but tenants wrecked it, this is a good oven, however my tenants wrecked it and I would advise no one to install this in a rented property. We have moved back in and it has scratches all over it and it is rusty, I would expect better from a 1 year old oven.
The oven is very good at heating the food very quickly and it has the whole shebang. The fan is also impressive and it doesn't make any noise. I think it also makes my kitchen a lot more modern and get complements from it. Very impressed so far, really is a good oven.
Very effective and also gets hot very fast. Comes with a range of heating options, which I have found very useful. Very quiet and faster than any other oven that we have had in our household. You'll sometimes need to turn on the timer to turn on the heat, sometimes not. I don't know if this is a fault or not.
It's pretty cool, it maintains the good temperature in all compartments for long time. It's very quiet and I can't hear the noises. I am happy with it. I never buy anything products before like it. I will use it for long time. Cleaning is very convenient and I clean it for several month. I like it very much.
The oven has standard features , and knobs and dials feel sturdy and looks stylish. The fan oven and grill work very well with even heat for roasts and the like. It's a decent size but a good fit for our small kitchen. A very capable oven that won't disappoint
I'm honestly pretty happy with this oven. It does get hot fast! Much faster than my old one. This oven cooks food very well especially roasts! I wish the timer was a bit easier to use. It's fairly easy to clean also. Great value for money oven! Can't complain. The husband hasn't complained either.
Food is cooked quickly and easily. Functionality is easy to use with only three knobs to use. Easy to clean as well with the detachable window and easy wipeable surface, both inside and outside. Looks very slim, both height and width. Looks great with matching Westinghouse appliances. - rangehood abf gas cook top.
