High quality oven

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 21, 2018

I have been happy with my purchase of this oven from Bosch. It is easy to operate, cooks food quickly and evenly, and has some useful features such as the express pre-heating mode. The build and finish of the oven is of a high standard. The two control knobs can be depressed so that they won't obtrude when they are not in use. It is higher priced than other ovens, but it is well built and offers some additional useful features.

Good value, no frills, looks good in kitchen

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 19, 2018

Cooks food well and more evenly and heats up rather faster than the more expensive oven we replaced which had nothing wrong with it, we just wanted a new oven that hadn't had meat cooked in it.
We have had it for 4 months and have had no issues. I prefer the manual controls. I understand this model is not made in Germany, I hope it lasts as long as my other Bosch appliances that are made in Germany. For the price it seems very good value.

Good oven

I am happy with the way my food is cooked in this oven. I have used the oven for approximately 6 months and haven’t had any issues. It is easy to use and has a touch screen lock feature, which is great for preventing kids from playing with the settings.

Great oven.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 09, 2018

This oven was bought to replace our 18 year old Simpson. So far so good. It cooks so much more evenly than the old oven. Controls are easy to use. Only issue is that the stainless steel finish attracts fingerprints very easily but what doesn’t. Hope it lasts as long as the old one!

Excellent oven

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 05, 2018

I have found this oven to be excellent and very fast in cooking food. I did alot of research into ovens and this had good reviews. I am glad i purchases it. The only issue i have had is that the bottom of the oven near the door melted and has a dent. It happened after i had a pizza accident and the hot cheese and toppings fell behind the oven door into the gap. I was surprised that the metal could be dented from that.

The bet oven I’ve ever bought

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 28, 2018

This oven is hands down the best oven I’ve ever bought. I love the 3D heat, it cooks chips in 15 min and pork crackling is to die for, which I’ve always struggled to do since changing to electric,but this oven is the bees knees. I haven’t cooked any cakes yet, so that will be interesting, but I love the instruction book gives examples for everything, right where to place trays on the racks. The fact that it comes with two wire racks and two trays that do not need to sit on a wire rack is awesome. It allows me to use 4 of the five racks at once, which for sausage rolls is great instead of waiting to swap out they all cook at once. Absolutely pleased I chose this oven. Price was great as it was on sale, and was only a little more expensive than the cheapest oven. Well worth it.

Best oven ever

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 06, 2018

The best oven I have ever owned. It is so easy to use and is extremely efficient. Cooks fast and baking in it produces excellent results. The beeping when time is up is great; no more forgetting the oven's on. The black is very classy. I'm glad I chose Bosch.

So happy with this oven. Purchased from The Good Guys with the best price offer.
It works perfectly fine as expected.
Very good finish quality. Very affordable price.
It matches with the gas cooktop purchased. The product look is great.

4 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 23, 2018

Purchased the Bosch oven a few months back. Requires some effort in cleaning though. If you want something to cook thoroughly without burning your food. It is defiantly a good buy. I am so over buying oven after oven. If your on a tight budget, the Bosch is very good.

Excellent - very pleased with product

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 22, 2018

Brought this originally to replace a super old one. Can't praise German technology more. Heats food evenly and very easy to adjust and monitor cooking. Very easy to clean and maintain. So far have not found anything that needs improvement. Love the timer and custom function controls. Appearance very pleasing to the eyes and a great addition to the look of the kitchen. Will not regret the buy.

It seems to work pretty well, but what's with the pictures?

4 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 14, 2018

Generally speaking, it's a nice oven and having fan forced is always good to have for an oven as well. However, the little "symbols" without writing out what the different oven functions are is rather annoying as I'm not interested in pulling out the manual every time I'm going to use the oven. I also find that it doesn't work too great with things like cakes if you want a perfectly level cake. That being said, it heats up fast, cooks well and fast for things that don't require perfection like a cake.

Pretty good oven

4 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 08, 2018

We bought this oven when we were renovating our kitchen. I like the stainless steel finish and it fits in well with our colour scheme. The oven itself is quick to heat up and cooks the food well. The only negative point I would have is that I have found the outside can get very very hot, so you need to be wary of this when cooking. Otherwise, a great product.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 07, 2018

This oven has done the best cooking I have ever seen. I love how fast it preheats. The handle feels great under my hands. The smoothness when your opening the door is super smoothing. Nothing on the oven is rigid or slow. I would recommend this exact oven to anyone who is looking to buy.

This oven does a great job for roasting and baking. Although, I wish the size was a bit bigger... both depth and width as I often use some baking dish in the oven at the same time. The temperature is accurate and the oven heats up quickly when I turn it on.

It is very helpful and help me save my time. It can automatically shut down when the heat is too high. This feature can prevent oven to burn out.

Hi there, i have the bosch hba13b253a oven and i have no idea how to use the oven function without the fan.... Can someone plz help as i bought it today and the instruction manual has no answer?

Hi Hayla
Apparently I wrote the wrong oven series (sorry!) and it sounds like you just have the oven which is a fan oven only and not both the fan and conventional oven. And I also paid over $1,000 for mine to get both functions.
