EASE OF USE The tem­per­a­ture and timer con­trols are neatly marked and easy to set; a di­a­gram rec­om­mends modes and set­tings for dishes like pizza and cake. A light in­di­ca­tor switches from red to green when the oven reaches the se­lected tem­per­a­ture. It was the eas­i­est to clean – it let me wipe out crumbs and stains with­out re­mov­ing the tray, un­like the rest.

GRILLING Though not the most moist of the lot, my grilled chicken fil­lets were ten­der, juicy and evenly cooked.

BAK­ING My muffins had the nicest rise and colour, ex­cept the ones at the outer front cor­ners of the pan, which were flat and pale. The crumb was moist and fluffy, but lacked the crusty top that the Sev­erin oven pro­duced.

TOAST­ING This oven had the most even heat­ing; the un­der­side of the bread was slightly darker only in the cen­tre of the oven.

VERDICT The best all-round per­former that heats evenly and is easy to use and clean.
