Our home economist cooks a range of meals to test the oven's ability to perform over a range of temperatures, times and functions. The performance score accounts for 60% of the overall score.

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

Ease of use score
Our home economist checks how easy the controls are to use, the clarity of the labels, using the grill and oven shelves, and cleaning the inside and outside of the oven. The ease of use score accounts for 40% of the overall score.

Measured internal baking volume (L)
The internal baking volume is calculated from measurements of the lowest shelf of the oven or baking tray (if supplied with one) to the grill element, side-wall to side-wall, and the rear-wall to the door.

Self-cleaning surfaces (catalytic liners)
Often referred to as 'self-cleaning' surfaces, catalytic liners work by absorbing fat splatters. You need to regularly heat the oven to 250°C for an hour to burn off the splatters and wipe them with a damp cloth when cool.
Self-cleaning function (pyrolytic)
True self-cleaning ovens are pyrolytic. Set on the cleaning mode, the oven locks itself and heats up to around 500°C, converting food residues into ash, which you wipe away when it cools.
Telescopic runners allow you to smoothly pull the oven racks and trays all the way out of the oven while keeping the shelf stable. They make loading, unloading and checking food while cooking much easier.
Child lock on controls
This is a safety feature that locks the controls so children can't use them.
Assisted, or automatic cooking, lets you cook certain dishes without having to enter the temperature or time required, thanks to pre-programmed settings.
Stainless steel fingerprint resistant
Fingerprints are less likely to show up on this surface.
Viewing through door
We rate how well you can view food cooking through the oven door.
An increasing number of ovens can connect to your home wi-fi network, allowing you to remotely control some functions or monitor the cooking process.
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.
