Hello!

After twenty five years of faithful service; cooking the family meals; roasts and cakes and all manner of delicious food; our oven has finally retired. It has stopped working and needs to be replaced. I became used to our temperamental oven and will miss it! We will need to save for a new oven and in the meantime will use a little camping/cook top oven for cooking! I am passionate about cooking and I would dearly love Mom’s stories and opinions on good oven brands.

  • I can’t recommend a particular brand.. But If it is something you use everyday id invest a bit for something that will make life easier!

  • I need a new oven…mine is dirty! Sorry I can’t help with any brands as I really do need a new one myself but not going to happen for a while. I’ll be following with interest (while I scrub my oven…)

  • I have a Westinghouse that has been going strong for quite some time now.

  • We got ours online and saved so much by doing this. We went for a Westinghouse and love it and it really is a amazing oven

  • My tip is, once you know what you want, look on line. We saved $350 including the shipping from buying online.

  • If you are getting gas Chef are a bit cheaper than Westinghouse and are exactly the same. I am not sure if they make Electric or not. We were replacing a gas one. Some Companies (e.g. Radio Rentals, Harvey Norman) have clearance stores – either superceded models or marked ones. There are posssibly others but I live in Adelaide so there may be a lot more companies in larger cities. It may only be that the packaging is damaged not the item itself. Some disposal places have brand new ones. Watch in the paper for Liqudation Sales. There are some places that stock goods such as electrical appliances of all sizes, possibly gas too. Check shops that specificly sell stoves. Even if you don’t buy it from them, they will have bigger displays and you can research those you think you like.

  • Buy the best you can afford, but if keeping costs down, look at the scratch and dent sales, we have a appliance warehouse in our city that has a lot of discontinued models etc, that are brand new but the companies change the models every few months so they discount the old model. Still has same warranty and usually features just a lot cheaper, also make sure that it will fit where the old one comes from, also if you have gas now, stay with gas, as it costs a lot to get elec feed to a new oven, also from experience, Westinghouse and any Australian brands are good, avoid the nice European ones, I have had 2 in 5 years (over 10k worth) and they are great when working well but very expensive to repair, one had over $500 worth of elements in the oven blow alone without the actual repair costs, so keep it simple, and look at repair costs as well because they do break and you want to be able to repair it at a reasonable cost.

  • Westinghouse ovens seem to do the trick. My oven is 30 year old and I fear I will have to replace it one day. About 7 years ago the element blew and my husband bought a new element and replaced it. It is still going strong! When I get a new one it will be one without all the bells and whistles!
