Jane, Kent Family cook

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
NB: We have only had the appliance installed for about a week, so there are preliminary observations. The primary good point for us is that the facade nearly matches a Siemens Quantum Speed oven immediately below the new one in the housing. It replaces a Quantum Speed combi-oven. We wanted to maintain the Siemens stainless steel look as we also have an excellent Siemens warming drawer. We also found it fairly easy to adjust the basic settings.
Bad points:
1. Installation: the Siemens Quantum Speed combi oven that this model replaced was plugged into a professionally installed electrical socket with isolator switch. We thought we would be able to do the same with this one, but it must be hard-wired so we incurred an electrician's bill of about £80.00 on top of the considerable price of the new oven. 2) Microwave features: The previous oven had a glass turntable whereas this only has shelves/pans. While we knew that this was the case when we ordered this unit, we preferred the turntable for microwaving . We are probably still on a learning curve as to which settings to use on the new one, but initially we have had some hiccups in figuring out times. For an oven which features a microwave feature, we were disappointed that a glass tray is an optional accessory (another £60 or so). 3) Build quality: This does not seem as robust as the QuantumSpeed unit, for example the knobs seem flimsier. 4) Temperature selection (non-microwave): this is done by turning the dial; again we preferred the digital display on the Quantum Speed.

One general observation: for the size of the unit, the actual cooking space is small in comparison (46 litres I believe), with the rest of the space occupied by controls.

Finally, as pointed out in the good points, these are comments made after using the appliance for just over a week. If we had had an opportunity to see the appliance in store and had known about the hard-wiring plus glass plan not coming with it, I'm not sure whether we would have purchased it. The need for hard-wiring, in particular, could be made more obvious in the product descriptions online ( this is not particularly directed at the website/company from which we purchased the product, as we looked at several sites.
