Clive, Birmingham Family cook

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Controls that push in so they are flush. Really easy to install, even though built in sits on the floor with four adjustable legs. Self clean liners. Dual grill and really fast to reach temperature.
Bad points:
Minute timer alarm needs to be louder.

Confirmed purchaser Family cook

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
The oven looks nice. It heats up quickly.
Bad points:
The top oven/grill door fell off on the second day of using it and I suspect there may be more trouble to come with these hinges. Hotpoint can only give me a repair date (not time) of nearly 2 weeks after phoning them. I understood that fan ovens were wonderful at cooking evenly but this one doesn't seem to be the best. Having saved up for years for a new oven maybe I was expecting too much but it's definately not as robust as my previous 25 year old gas oven

Confirmed purchase: 18 Aug 2010

Confirmed purchaser Family cook

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fan oven heats up quickly. Nice wide ovens easily fits 2 trays side by side. Self cleaning sides brilliant.
Bad points:
Fan oven doesn't cook evenly i.e. food has to be turned half way through cooking. Fan quite noisy.
Although it states in the instruction book that the main oven light can be on without the fan or heat the knob does not turn far enough to reach the light icon which is at the 11 o'clock position and would have to be turned right through all the heat settings to get to it. A big mistake I think.
