Good points

  • Excellent oven performance.
  • OK to use.
  • Very good visibility through oven door.
  • Soft opening and closing door.
  • Grill element can be lowered for easy cleaning.
  • Mostly glass exterior is easy to clean.
  • Baking trays and pans have a coating making them easier to clean.
  • Has a child lock (for controls).

But

  • Controls can be tricky to use initially, you’ll need to refer to instruction manual.
  • No fan-assist function.
  • No telescopic shelf-runners.
  • No separate grill tray supplied.
  • No shield in front of grill element.
  • Oven shelves move out loosely and can accidently be pulled out (even though they have stoppers).
  • Gap between door and glass can trap condensation and spills.
  • EcoClean Direct coating (performs similarly to cataylic liners) on back wall only provides limited coverage.

How we test

Overall score includes:

Oven performance (60%): Based on toast, scones, meringues, roast chicken and pizza.
Ease of use (40%): Evaluated controls and displays, ease of using the grill and oven shelves, replacing light bulbs, and cleaning.
