Rounded to the nearest litre. We measure the internal volume from the lowest shelf of the oven or baking tray to the grill element, side-wall to side-wall, and the rear wall to the door. For the glass convection ovens, we measured from the floor to the rim and the top and bottom radius.

This overall score is made up of cooking performance (60%) and ease of use (40%).
enter value/s in increments of i between 55 and 76
Ease of use score
We looked at how easy it was to clean, how easy it was to understand and use the controls, how well the shelves moved and how stable they were and the number and type of shelves and trays.

Cooking performance score
We toasted bread to see how even the grill was, roasted a chicken to see how well and evenly it could roast and baked a fresh supermarket pizza to see whether it could give a crisp crust and moist topping.

Chicken cooking score
We roast a 1.8kg whole chicken to assess baking a non-uniform food at moderate to high temperature over a long period while retaining moisture and crisping the skin.

Grilling toast score
We toasted bread to see how even the grill was.

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
