. You know: for grilling (or 'broiling', if you're an American. ) View More ▸ This same tech also allows you to cook a number of different dishes at once without any intermingling of flavours – no more chicken-flavoured apple tarts, then.
And speaking of chicken, this oven is by no means only for baking – it'll roast things very nicely as well, although on this model there's no built-in temperature probe to help out more hapless, meat-charring cooks.
However, the multifunction appliance really comes into its own once you start exploring its array of features. The Neff comes with a suitably ample 71-litres of interior space, a grill section – though it doesn’t come with a grill pan – and pyrolytic self-cleaning. According to its army of disciples, it’s very quick to heat up and its 2.

+Specially tinted oven glass +Steam cleaning +Keenly priced +Sabbath compatible +Wireless probe makes meat cooking foolproof +Steam-assisted cooking +Touch door opening +Pyrolytic self-cleaning The bottom oven has 61 litres of room for large stuff like chickens, turkeys and anything else you want to throw in it, while the top 43-litre cavity also doubles as a grill big enough to brown six slices of Warburtons. Rather like the winning Neff, this model also cooks evenly on any one of its five shelf positions, making it another top choice for discerning bakers who demand consistently accurate results for every bun they bung in the oven. Let’s have a look at the control panel first.
This one comes with a multicoloured M Touch display providing access to a myriad of features, including a raft of fully automatic cooking configurations dedicated to specific meats, breads and cakes. You can also wave goodbye to complaints from family members about your overcooked roast grouse because it comes with a digital wireless probe that lives in a recess in the oven door. Simply pull it out, stick it in the grouse and when it’s at the precise temperature, the oven stops and presumably sounds an alarm along the lines of ‘ding, your bird is ready, sir or ma'am’.
The fun starts with the white LED digital display, which features a minute minder along with a child lock for safety. Controlling the John Lewis & Partners JLBIOS634 is a doddle, with a beefy selection of functions that cover all kinds of cooking tasks. It’s great for everyday recipes, thanks to rock-solid conventional settings, but the oven is also brilliant for gentler moist fan baking duties.

The ‘cool start’ function is a boon as it lets you pop in something directly from the freezer if you forget to take it out the night before. Which we all, inevitably, end up doing. 2019-05-06T11:17:05Z This is another popular oven with few user quibbles though one or two have had issues understanding the fiddly digital rocker switches.
Nevertheless, it’s keenly priced for a Smeg, is well specified, heats up quickly, cooks well and looks the dogs’ gonads. As you’ve probably gathered, this stunning kitchen centrepiece is completely devoid of ostentatious bling and filled instead with the kind of tech that turns a crap chef into masterful one. That's worth nearly £4,000 of anyone's money, surely? The John Lewis & Partners JLBIOS634 also boasts a pizza setting, which is mighty handy when you’ve got a family and distractions can result in ruined meals.
Similarly, the plate warming function is convenient and we also love the turbo grilling function that lets you achieve the crunch factor without overdoing it. Another plus is the food heat sensor probe, which keeps tabs on whether dishes have been cooked through or not.
There’s more; the child lock is a nice addition, while the non-tip shelves make a lot of sense too if you’ve got hot juices sloshing around, as do the telescopic runners that aid entry and exit shenanigans. The timer works a treat and there’s pyrolytic self-cleaning, but you can switch on the interior light manually if you prefer wiping the interior down yourself.

Its gear is generally well built, efficient and mostly reliable. And it's made by BSH, the same mega-brand as Neff and Siemens, as it happens.
However, some users have reported that the temperature isn’t as accurate as they’d like and even more have lambasted the perplexing manual. What’s new? It also uses a hefty slice of electricity when both ovens are at full bore. On the plus side, the touch control panel is easy enough to navigate (unless you have fingers like pork sausages), both cavities are swathed in self-cleaning catalytic linings and the whole shebang looks pretty darn swish in all that brushed silver trim.
The pyrolytic cleaning isn’t quite as impressive as we’d like, although it’s also an easy appliance to clean manually, so that’s not to dismiss the John Lewis & Partners JLBIOS634. In fact, we’d say it’s a superb choice on most fronts. Another big bonus is the speed with which the Siemens HB578A0S0B heats up and it’s similarly impressive when it comes to providing consistent heat.
In fact, it’s ideal for baking where blips in temperature can often render sponge cakes and other delicate recipes useless. The powerful heating credentials do, of course, also make it perfect for across-the-board meal making. The best blenders 2019: it's time to beat food into a fine pulp

T3's top tip when it comes to ovens? If you can’t be arsed with scrubbing fatty muck off the oven walls every few weeks, we'd recommend a model with fat-absorbing catalytic linings or, better still, a pyrolytic model that uses extreme temperature (500ºC or higher) to carbonise the crap out of everything, reducing stains to a fine, slightly sinister dust. When it’s finished cremating, you simply vacuum out the remnants. Installing a built-in oven This premier piece of Germanic engineering represents the best that Miele has to offer.

All of this requires expertise and a pair of strong arms so be prepared to fork out extra on a carpenter or specialised kitchen fitter.
