Indesit ovens reviews
In our tough lab tests, Indesit ovens tend to score excellently for heat distribution. To test how effectively an oven distributes heat, 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.
Most Indesit ovens also score well for how easy they are to clean. However, several models score poorly for evenness of grilling and scores for accuracy of controls range from excellent to poor.
If you’re considering buying a specific Indesit 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.
None of the Indesit ovens we’ve tested are childproof, but three come with catalytic oven 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.
As well as testing ovens in our lab, we also survey thousands of oven owners on the reliability of the model they have. Which? subscribers can see Indesit’s reliability rating in the table below, or visit the reliability page in our ovens review to see reliability data for all oven brands.
