"Great oven once you master the control knob, cooks so much better than our old one lots of options for different cooking styles only wished l had upgraded to the next model
With pyrolytic function for cleaning but that doesn't take anything away from it would definitely recommend "
"Ordered as a replacement to the one originally supplied as part of the Kitchen upgrade - not quite the same model, but fitted in the unit perfectly, lots of different heating programs, easy to use controls, bang up-to-date. "

"This Bosch Serie 8 HBG634BS1B oven is a joy.
It is stylish, sleek looking and a pleasure to use. Do read the instructions fully to get the most out of it.
It heats to the required temperature super fast, and cooks really evenly. So quiet you wouldn’t know it’s on.
I needed two ovens, and so glad I chose this one."
"Smart easy to use. Cleaning is quick and simple. This is the best oven I have ever had the experience of both gas or electric. Settings are easy to understand and to use providing perfectly cooked food every time. "
"Very good oven, very easy to use and has lots of settings, I didn’t rate the pizza setting but I could be doing it wrong. I would definitely recommend "
"I've had the oven for 3 months and recently remembered the really high scores it got on this website. Those scores played a big part in my purchase so I though I'd leave a review.
All in all, the oven seems to be performing decently. It's done some basic cooking or baking every day since I got it and there haven't been any bad results so far.
The user interface is a little style of substance though. It looks great, but there's little need for the dial on the front. The normal up and down arrows you've been using on countless other models for decades work far better.
I often like to use the timer on an oven and it takes longer than it should to set it. Minor grievance, but you have to scroll past '1 second, 2 seconds, 3,4,5' and so on. It does finally start incrementing in 5s, 15s, 1 minute increments, but it is a little annoying. Who sets a timer for '4 seconds'? It's just basic badly designed UX. I'm a full time graphic design & UI designer, so I feel like I have some understanding of these things.
The wheel is also brushed metal (minor textured grooves). But the direction of the brushing is the same direction as you spin the dial. If you have slightly greasy fingers from doing an activity such as, say, cooking... you get slippage. Whoever designed the wheel should have had a quick look at how HiFi systems implement their knobs or the dials of a SLR camera. These design problems were solved years ago.
The child lock - again, it's not a deal breaker and maybe I should have read through the manual before purchasing (who does that?). But it's pretty pointless. It doesn't lock the door and it doesn't lock out all the buttons from usage. It has a very specific usage. It locks only the 'touch sensitive' buttons when the oven is on and it locks the 'on/off' button when the oven is off. My kid loves switching the oven off when I'm out the room for who knows how long before I realise.
Other little silly UI decisions: The main display tells you how long the oven's been on for as its main screen- even if you've set a timer. But who cares how long it's been on for unless you're doing some slow-cooking?
One more: oh my lord, how many times I'm sitting eating my dinner and glance over to look at the time and all I see is "oven cooling down" on the main screen. The message stays on the screen for maybe an hour or 2 after cooking, which I suppose means it's probably got great insulation.
I clearly need to pop a clock up on my wall.
Ending on a high - It gets up to temperature insanely fast. No more - 'aw naaw I forgot to preheat the oven' when you want a quick frozen pizza. It gets up to 180 in about 6 minutes. If you use the ultra fast preheat button, it'll do it in about 4. It really will.
Anyway, decent oven, does it's primary job of cooking very well, but has some niggly issues that are a bit bizarre.
