Bosch ovens reviews
In our tough lab tests, Bosch ovens typically score very well for oven heat distribution. To test heat distribution, we bake two trays of fairy cakes on different shelves. The best ovens produce 24 cakes that are all well-risen, uniformly cooked and an even golden brown colour.
Bosch ovens also tend to score very well for evenness of grilling. However, scores for accuracy of controls range from excellent to average, as do scores for ease of use, and some models score poorly for how easy they are to clean.
All the Bosch ovens we tested are childproof and just over half have catalytic liners. This means they have rough surfaces inside, which catch, absorb and break down food spills. These are burned away during normal cooking, and should make your oven walls easier to keep clean.
If you’re considering buying a specific Bosch oven, check how well it scores on a variety of criteria, by visiting our ovens test results. Here you will also find our compare ovens tool which can help you find an oven that best suits your needs.
As well as testing ovens in our lab, we also survey thousands of ovens owners to find out how happy they are with their oven brand and whether they’d recommend it to a friend.
