Advantages: Cheap and easy to use basic controls.
Disadvantages: Internal light and extractor fan.
I bought this oven just last thursday from comet for £199 i could actually have got it cheaper from Currys but as they made a complete mess of my order i decided i would rather pay more elsewhere. This same oven actually comes in Black as well but i chose the white option. The price for this oven is very reasonable because prices for these things can be very high but as we had an indesit before that had been very reliable over a number of years i decided this was enough to pay. Its a fairly basic oven but meets all my cooking needs. Its a single fan assisted oven with a grill and as a minute timer dial that goes up to 60 minutes. Inside it comes with a drip tray and two shelves that can be slotted into five different positions. Inside it also as a light that comes on when you start cooking (or at least its meant to).The inside of the oven is designed to be easily wiped clean. As soon as we got it we put the oven on for 30 minutes without food in it as when first used the new oven can give off some bad smelling fumes, this was all as per the instructions. At this point all was well. When we turned the oven off an extractor fan continues to run for a few minutes to cool the oven down, except in this case it stayed on and would not go off. It actually stayed on for the next 3 - 4 hours spewing cold air out into my kitchen. After reporting the fault to Comet i was informed to turn the oven on and off again and it might re-set itself something to do with it being a new install ? I did so but it stayed on so they said an engineer would come in 2 days, meanwhile the extractor fan would be on for 2 days. That evening we cooked our first meal in it and the internal light failed to come on, probably just the bulb to be replaced but with the fan problem as well i was not impressed, when buying a brand new product one at least expects it to be perfect on the first day. Miraculously after turning the oven off after cooking our meal within a few minutes the extractor fan turned off as its meant to and as worked fine since.
In the past 3 days since, the oven (apart from the light inside) as operated properly. The food is cooked very well and evenly throughout and the oven seems to heat up very quickly. All in all its a good basic oven that cooks well, but beware the possible extractor fan problem if you do decide to buy. Oh and i am still waiting to have the light replaced.
Summary: Cooks the food very well
