|Testing information||We introduced new oven tests in 2011 which include additional assessments of performance, energy and convenience. This oven has been tested to the new test programme. Results for ovens tested before 2011 aren’t directly comparable.||This oven was tested before 2011 and the results aren't directly comparable with ovens tested from 2011 onwards. More recently tested ovens will have this listed in the full specification tab online.|

Whether it's a gas or electric, has a single or double oven and if it is a double, whether it's built-in or built-under.
The colour we give here is the colour of the oven that we tested. Built-in ovens usually come in more than one colour, so if you're looking for a black oven but we only have the stainless steel, check with the manufacturer.
Claimed oven capacity (l)
This is the total volume of the top and main ovens. The litre figure given is worked out based on the height x width x depth of the ovens, rather than the actual usable volume. For double ovens we have given the claimed capacity of the top oven, followed by the main oven.
Main oven claimed capacity (l)
This is the total volume of the main oven. The litre figure given is worked out based on the height x width x depth of the main oven, rather than the actual usable volume.
Main oven usable volume (l)
This is the actual space that you can use to cook with in the main oven. It's the space available above the lowest shelf in its lowest position, up to 3cm below the top of the oven.
Size hxwxd (cm)
This is the actual space needed to install the oven into a kitchen cabinet. The actual height and width of the oven front will be slightly larger.
Whether it has a probe to test if meat is fully cooked.
Whether it has a child lock function preventing the oven from being used. (Retractable knobs are not regarded as a true childproof feature.)
Type of self-cleaning lining
Annual running costs (£)
This is based on roasting a chicken three times a week in the main oven.
Oven heat distribution
We measure how evenly heat is distributed around the oven cavity.
Oven controls accuracy
This is the difference between the set oven temperatures, and the temperatures the ovens actually reached in our tests.
Oven preheating speed
How quickly the main oven heats up to set temperatures.
How evenly it toasted using the grill.
We bake a large fatless sponge cake and measure the evenness of browning and how well it rises. This test was introduced for all ovens tested from 2011.
Ease of use
How easy the oven and grill are to use. This includes the controls, visibility, doors, how easy it is to adjust shelves and to load and unload food in both oven and grill.
Ease of cleaning with self-clean functions and by hand.
Flexibility of space
We test the flexibility of space inside ovens with joints of beef, chickens and turkeys on roasting trays to see whether the space provided, and the shelf arrangement, allow them to fit in. We then check whether the ovens are flexible enough to allow another roasting tray to be fitted in above. We carry out this test on both top and main ovens.
We simulate roasting a whole chicken by heating 2kg of bricks in the main oven for 1hr 40 mins. Electric conventional ovens are set to 200ºC, electric fan ovens are set to 170ºC and gas ovens at gas mark 6. This test was introduced for ovens tested from 2011.
How reliable this brand of oven is.
