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.
