    We haven’t made great use of this so far, but we have been satisfied so far.

    Like that I can cook anything in it like that it has a flat bottom and no turntable.

    This is a good product, Ive used it for 2 months so far. I preferred the previous incarnation with the pull down door which meant you could access the interior from either side, but this is as good functionally. It works well as a convection oven but I suspect the temperature is lower than that indicated and takes longer to cook stuff than in a normal convection oven. The upside is that it uses much less energy and only takes 3mins to heat to temperature. I’d buy it again.

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersThis is a good product, Ive used it for 6 months so far. I preferred the previous incarnation with the pull down door which meant you could access the interior from either side, but this is as good functionally. It works well as a convection oven but I suspect the temperature is much lower than that indicated and takes longer to cook stuff than in a normal convection oven in face when cooking stuff that’s supposed to go in at 180 degrees I cook at 220. That’s a huge difference, otherwise your food is still raw or you need to double cooking time. The issue appears to be that the convection oven isn’t really a convection oven, it’s a grill with a blower. The upside is that it uses much less energy and only takes 3mins to heat to temperature, but to be honest I’ve all but stopped using the convection oven for cooking oven chips since they need high temperature. I’d buy it again if I was looking for a decent microwave but beware of its limitations.

    The microwave has to be repeatedly paused so that you can reposition the food. I wish I had bought one with a turntable.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersI’ve been using this for a week now without any problems at all. I didn’t think I’d need the grill/convection oven aspects, but on offer it wasn’t much more than microwave-only ovens. I’ve found myself using the grill/convection as it cooks better than my main oven (electric fan). Heats up far quicker (less air/space to make hot) so cooking starts almost immediately. I’ve certainly found no need to preheat the oven as with my main oven, although preheat is programmable and it’ll keep it hot for 30m before automatically turning off (in case you fell asleep waiting for the preheat complete beeper) – a nice safety feature.

    I kept the glass turntable from my old microwave thinking it’d make a good base plate and that was a great bit of forward planning. I can put any type of plastic container on the glass plate without fear it’ll sully the flatbed or stick to it. It’s become a permanent fixture until such time I need to pack more square things in.

    The keypad beeps with every press but you can turn that off. It only beeps 4 times (moderately) when your meal is ready. Short beeps too – my old one did 8 long loud beeps that kept going even when I’d opened the door – drove me up the wall – felt like it was screaming at me “BEEEEEP BEEEEEP BEEEEEP…”. I’ll give this 5* just for that alone! It goes into child lock mode after a few minutes of non-use. Just press mute for 3s to unlock, or open/close the door.

    It looks lovely in black. The door is slightly mirrored and you can use it as such if you want. The clock is a nice clear white. You can turn it off by pressing stop for 3s – I don’t need 3 clocks in the kitchen.

    Nothing to complain about regarding this oven at all – works perfectly and probably more efficiently than using my main oven for simple frozen fish/chips type easy meals.

    I do find the manual lacking though. 9 pages of warnings. 2 pages for installation. 1 page for “control panel”. Just 3 pages related to cooking. The “auto cook” (program) table A01-A13 is sorely lacking. It just tells you “code=food type”. eg “A10 = oven chips”. It does not tell you if that program uses microwave, grill or convection, how long it runs for or what power levels. If you don’t know a program is going to use the grill and you put a plastic container in then you’re going to have a serious problem. I tried A10 for my first cook and it uses both grill and convection. I could only tell this by staring into the microwave and seeing the grill element turn red – just for a few minutes then it turns off while the convection oven does the rest. It would be nice if the manual stated how each program operates. I’ve drawn a table in the back of the manual to write down how each program works as I nervously venture through the programs possibly using the wrong type of container. Much better to use the manual combos/settings methinks.

    However – the A10 did my frozen fish and chips really well (using the supplied “baking tray” – no idea if I was supposed to use it for that). It runs for 20 mins (not adjustable) and needed another 5 mins to get them just right. Exactly how long depends on many things including how cold your freezer actually is. Live and learn.

    A thumbs up for the oven. A thumbs down for the manual if it’s the programs you specifically need. If you prefer manual operation then all that is explained well; microwave only, grill only, convection only, microwave+grill (eg lasagne), microwave+convection (eg chicken and steak). There doesn’t seem to be grill+convection so I’m still not sure how my A10 fish and chips cooked! I used the metal baking tray so it can’t be microwaved, the grill did come on so it must be grill+convection even though it’s not manually possible.

    All in all a very capable oven. Flatbed rocks – you have the entire expanse of the square base available (12″ x 12″, 30cm x 30cm – a tiny bit more but that’s about right). The manual states internal dimensions of 330 x 220 x 335 mm (W x H x D). That is somewhat misleading. The base is not that size. It’s only 330mm wide if you measure from the indent on the left hand panel half way up. It’s only 335mm deep if you include the inner indent on the door – 335mm actually comes out of the oven a little. I’d not be buying any dishes based on the manuals dimensions. I’ve a 12″x12″ pizza stone that fits with just a little room to spare on each side.

    we wanted a do-it-all microwave to replace our old Panasonic. This had good reviews and good spec (and not too bad a price). Very pleased with it. Simple to operate and keep clean having a flat base and not a turntable. Using the convection oven a lot too for more and more food rather than use our main oven. Excellent.

    A good purchase but the interior light is not fit for purpose making it difficult to see the interior when operating requiring much door opening to review progress.
