Good points

  • Excellent oven performance.
  • Easy to use.
  • Has very easy-to-use dial controls (which can be retracted when cleaning exterior).
  • Grill element can be lowered for easy cleaning.
  • Visibility through the oven door is good.
  • Has catalytic liner on the back and “perfect clean” treated surfaces on oven interior and baking tray.
  • The stainless-steel exterior is fingerprint-resistant (so it’s easy to clean).
  • Has a child lock.

But

  • No separate grill tray (the tray is “universal”).
  • Tray and oven shelves roll out loosely and can be accidentally pulled all the way out (even though they have stoppers).
  • Grill element has no shield.
  • Smokeless grill tray is available (but is an optional extra).
  • Baked-on residue requires extra effort to remove.
  • No telescopic runners supplied (optional extra).

How we test

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.
