Best oven brands: Zanussi ovens

Zanussi logo

The Zanussi brand was founded in Italy by Antonio Zanussi in 1916, becoming best known for its range of gas cookers. In the 1980s, Zanussi became part of the Electrolux AB Stockholm group, and it continues to manufacture a range of household appliances, both for cooking and cleaning.

Zanussi’s range of ovens is broad: the company makes single and double, gas and electric, and built-in and built-under models. It also makes those with side-opening doors, easy-clean linings and, more recently, ovens that can cook with gas. To see how Zanussi ovens have scored in our range of tests, take a look at the Which? oven reviews, which will give you the full breakdown.

The Which? verdict on Zanussi ovens

Our oven tests cover a range of different functions, from how accurate the temperate controls are to how energy efficient a model is. We also gather information on how well heat is circulated around the oven, how evenly the grill spreads heat, and so on.

Zanussi ovens tend to pre-heat quickly, control temperature accurately, and have good grills. They also tend to be reasonably priced. To see the full range of test scores – and if any models have been awarded Best Buy status – take a look at the table below.

How much do Zanussi ovens cost?

While you’ll pay more for double ovens or additional features, most Zanussi ovens are reasonably priced, and those we’ve tested generally cost around £250 to £350. There are some concessions made for this price – such as ovens sometimes only coming with one shelf – but we’ve generally found them to be good value.
