This BEKO oven is a built in version and we also have the matching hob. Our landlord picked it and installed it, so I assume it's one the cheaper ones on the market, and I can see here that it can be bought for around £175, which seems ok.
The oven has various settings and a grill incorporated in to the top of the oven it (a grill-pan is also included that slides into the grooves either side of the oven to hold it in place). As you can see on the picture there are 2 dials on the oven. The one on the left is used to choose the setting you want, but basically you can turn the light on, turn the fan on, turn the oven with light and fan on, turn the frill on, turn the grill and fan on. so nothing too complicated. The middle dial is a timer, you can flick it the the left and just have it on unlimited or pick the time by rotating the dial clockwise - up to 100 minutes, and it pings when it's done. When it gets to zero though it turns the oven off. The third dial, the one on the right, is a temperature dial the runs from 0-250oC.
Inside the oven you get two adjustable shelves and the grill pan (mentioned above), which I find sufficient for the two of us. The oven door opens towards you and has reinforced glass.
As for usuage I do a lot of baking and cooking and I find for baking the oven is good. As with any oven you have to get used to the temperature and I find that this oven is hot so I set the temperature at 10oC less than any recipe asks and this seems to work fine. One thing that did happen quickly was the light bulb broke, but we've replaced it and it seems to holding up ok now.
The only issue I have with this oven is that you can't grill and bake at the same time, it has to be one or the other. This can be a bit of a pain, but by no means is a deal breaker for us.
Cleaning the oven is easy enough and the shelves are removable so you can really get into the rest of the oven and give it a good clean.
All in all a good cheap little oven....but if you need to use the grill and oven at the same time you might want to look for an alternative.
