We replaced a (very) old oven with this double oven from Bosch.
We were initially concerned that the measurements suggested that it may not fit the cupboard space but it seems all manufacturers measure slightly differently but they all seem to fit into the standard cupboards.
The oven also has a clock with a timer.
The top section can be used either as a conventional (non fan assisted) oven or as a grill and inludes one shelf as well as the grill pan. While we use the grill regularly, we have only used the oven on occasion when entertaining - the lower section is almost always large enough. When we have used the upper oven as an oven, we have found that it takes an age to reach the required temperature.
The larger lower section is a fan assisted oven. We generally use this with two shelves but sometimes use three when necessary. This oven heats up very quickly.
Both sections are lit, meaning that you can see what's cooking without having to open the door and let the heat out.
The doors do not get hot on the outside, and the oven doesn't radiate too much heat, so it's no trouble to be stood next to it in the kitchen.
One slightly strange thing is that the oven makes quite a bit of noise once it's switched off - there must be a small fan somewhere blowing the hot air out.
We always buy Bosch products as they seem to be the best balance of quality at an affordable price - we got ours online from Boots, so got points too.
Having just had a new kitchen fitted, my husband and I went out in search of a new electric oven. Knowing that Bosch are generally a reliable make, and having seen that curry's had this oven on offer, we decided to give it a try, and thus far have been exceptionally pleased with it.
Efficiency: the oven consists of a top oven- controlled by two of the dials on the front, and a bottom, main oven- which is a fan oven, controlled by one temperature dial on the front. The top oven has energy efficiency rating B and the bottom A
Size: the capacity of the top oven is 1.06cu. ft, and the capacity of the main oven is 2.05cu ft. So overall a nice size
Controls: the front has 3 dials, the one on the left controls the type of heating you want in the top oven (grill, oven etc), the one just off centre controls the temperature of the main oven, and the one to the right controls the temperature of the top oven. In the centre there is also a touch control panel, displaying the time. This is where your timer is- which can be used as an alarm, end cooking time or counter so you can see how long is remaining before its cooked.
Accessories: the main oven comes with 2 shelves, the top oven comes with one and a grill pan
Price: RRp on this item is £799.99, but you can pick it up for around £500 with a one year warranty as standard.
Overall we've been very pleased with it- it cooks evenly, and most importanly looks lovely. It is available in Stainless steel, black and white.
