60Cm steamcrisp latest ways to make money oven (bsk774320m) aeg australia

Rated 3 out of 5 by rod M from problems latest ways to make money with our new AEG oven (BSK774320M) problems with our new AEG oven (model BSK774320M 60cm steamcrisp oven): it should be noted: we have a LOT of criticisms about the poor design latest ways to make money of many of the oven’s features BUT from our comparisons with other ovens from latest ways to make money other companies it appears that most have the same design latest ways to make money problems. So the AEG is probably no worse than other brands. We are adapting to the new oven but having to latest ways to make money find ways around how the manual says to use it latest ways to make money (poor manual?) in order to get food cooked properly. Should NOT have to do this. Note: we are both very experienced cooks and cook a very latest ways to make money wide range of foods. ***our (accurate) oven temp. Gauge indicates our AEG oven’s temp. Indicator is OFF (reads high by up to 15C sometimes even after an latest ways to make money hour). ***GRILL function is bizarre and very slow and hard to latest ways to make money use: 1. If any reasonable temp is set then oven goes into latest ways to make money a mandatory heat-up mode. Why? Set temp is reached in about 1-2 mins, BUT the heat-up still continues until the grill is red hot and latest ways to make money then it cools back down to the preset temp. Overall takes 6 mins before you can use the griller. What on earth is it doing for the extra 4 latest ways to make money mins? (heating the entire oven? Playing cards? A grill function should NOT do this). 2. Grill function is a bizarre design. Oven cooking works by heating the air which heats the latest ways to make money food. Grilling should work by heat (infrared radiation) from the hot grill element directly heating the food below latest ways to make money it. AEG oven seems to waste many minutes heating the air latest ways to make money in the oven first on grill function (wrong – too slow and this is not “grill" cooking). 3. Note: all of the above was confirmed by staff at spartan latest ways to make money electrical – they “tested” 3 of their showroom AEG ovens and found the grill latest ways to make money function to be strange in all three. ***minute minder (MM) is VERY poorly designed: maximum timer alert volume (at maximum setting) is very very low. Why??? Timer alert only runs for 2 minutes. Should beep (forever) until turned off. MM does not count up when it reaches zero. In certain modes minute minder is stopped when you touch latest ways to make money ANY button on the oven (even to just check temperature). Aaaarggh! Is this a bug? Only happens sometimes. The minute minder (MM) time and the operating time keep swapping between the bottom latest ways to make money and middle display lines. Why??? Confusing! Crazy design!!! ***turbo grill function is unpredictable and very variable: E.G. Followed manual for roasting chicken pieces using turbo grill. Should have taken about 1 hour at most, took 2 hours, didn’t brown the meat but cooked it with a slightly latest ways to make money “boiled” texture (not so nice). Note: we asked the demonstrator at our free AEG cooking class latest ways to make money demo and they said: “oh, you probably need to let the oven heat up for latest ways to make money at least 30 minutes after the fast heat up period, i.E. At least 36 minutes, before putting your food in. I often need a heat up of 60 minutes before latest ways to make money using the oven”. This means that AEG brochures, web site and sales people are being somewhat dishonest as latest ways to make money they say that modern electric ovens have a fast heat latest ways to make money up of about 5 minutes, are better than older electric ovens and on par with latest ways to make money gas ovens. This is not true. ***installer had two major problems with the oven: 1 installation manual (diagram and dimensions) suggests a “proud” install is best. In fact oven can ONLY be installed flush with cabinet. 2 the top right corner of the oven door did latest ways to make money not line up with the top oven (display) panel of the oven and would catch (hit!) the edge of the wooden cabinet the oven was installed latest ways to make money in. ***manual is terrible. Omits certain features and minor functions, errors in installation section, etc.: 1. No explanation of why you can’t install telescopic runners on the top rail. (AEG staff DID help explain this). 2. No mention of flush only install. In fact installation manual indicated a “proud” install was best. 4. Manual section on “fast heat-up” setting does not say if this includes the grill function. 5. No mention of how the minute minder works.(except how to set a time). E.G. No mention that holding the “up” and “down” arrows at the same time for 3 secs will reset latest ways to make money the timer to zero (a convenient feature!). 6. A lot of information is missing when using the table latest ways to make money on cooking different foods. 7. And all the other problems mentioned above and below. ***the maximum temperature the external bottom (i.E. Underside) of the oven can reach is way above what AEG latest ways to make money staff state. ***AEG do not make a smokeless grill tray: AEG in australia is owned by electrolux and they do latest ways to make money have a smokeless grill tray which actually fits the AEG latest ways to make money (only by good luck). ***pyrolytic cleaning mode has minor problems. If run for 90mins. Two areas in the oven do not get hot enough latest ways to make money (front left spot on the base, front right spot on the base) and any grease here is burnt onto the base (but not turned to powder) and so is even harder to remove after pyrolytic cleaning. These two spots NEED to be cleaned by hand first. ***the operating time resets on too many changes (e.G. If a new cooking function is chosen, etc. Etc. ). So the total operating / cooking time is lost (and coupled with a minute minder that is too quiet latest ways to make money to hear and only runs for a very short time latest ways to make money ==> very confusing). ***too early to really tell but the "steam crisp” feature seems fairly useless. (NOTE: actual steam cooking in the very expensive ovens is probably latest ways to make money useful but not “steam assist”). Good things: • overall the oven is well built and can be quite latest ways to make money usable (manually). It has enough “manual” control over all the heating elements that one can learn latest ways to make money to use it effectively manually (and mostly just ignore the fiddly “automatic” features and ignore the useless manual). • minute minder (MM) is fairly easy to SET. It’s just a pain to USE overall (and it’s unbelievably quiet and I have good hearing!). • great operational display (shows programmed start time, duration of current operation, minute minder time remaining, current function, heat up progress, set temperature, temp. Probe temperature all at once in a very readable display). • the control (touch buttons) work quite well (note there exist features NOT mentioned in the manual). • note: the temperature probe seems very accurate for roasts etc. • the favourites menu is excellent. Easy to set and easy to use. • the demonstrator at our free AEG cooking class demo was latest ways to make money excellent. She was an experienced chef, knew how to use the ovens and was very open, honest and helpful with usage problems. 10/10! • overall good value for money – many features and accessories such as 3 pairs of telescopic latest ways to make money runners included. • purchased from spartan electrical (at torrensville store in adelaide) – very very helpful staff.
