Poor quality, with a few design flaws (noisy fan, warm air blowing)
All of our appliances were replaced with Bosch recently. Unfortunately, this oven is subpar, and if I had my time again, I would choose a different brand, such as Kitchenaid. br>Pros: It has a lovely appearance and cooks up nicely. The controls are simple and straightforward. It has a number of appealing features.
Cons: a poor product The cooling fan is loud and blows warm air into the kitchen, and the customer service is poor. br>Details: br> A fan turns on when one of the ovens heats up, blowing warm air from beneath the touchpad. Because it's chin to face, it's a little annoying. level for a lot of people. In addition, the fan is quite loud. These are minor flaws, but I wouldn't expect a $3000 appliance to be without them. Plus, having a device blow warm air into my Florida air conditioning system isn't ideal. a kitchen that is cool Moreover, the oven had serious design/quality issues from the start, beeping and flashing 'convection bake' on the display whether it was on or off. The oven would then turn off by itself if it was turned on. This was completely unrelated to the topic at hand - Occasionally every few minutes, and occasionally up to twice a day 3 days. The Bosch factory service representative contacted Bosch, who informed him that this was a "well-known issue" that would be resolved in two weeks. They'd 'identified the problem with the touchpad, and expected to have a replacement part soon,' according to them three weeks later. The guy took another three weeks to install the new touchpad. There will be no changes - However, there is a problem. He confirmed with Bosch the next day that they'd sent the same old touchpad and that a replacement part would arrive in another 1-week. 2 weeks. There are still three weeks left. There are no new parts in stock. br>Finally, after nearly three months and four repair visits, the project was completed. I made 20 phone calls to my local dealer, Bosch customer service, and the company's repair technician. Bosch agreed to replace the still-non-functional system. oven in good working order The new one is installed and has been functioning satisfactorily for the past month. br>Overall, I'd steer clear of Bosch ovens. Microwaves are used in the kitchen. (At the same time, we replaced a built-in microwave that had gone bad and had to be replaced right away. ) It, too, has a problem with noisy fans.
