Hi everyone!

We are looking at kitcehn renovations and need to decide on which oven and hob to buy.

We have lived overseas for 6 years and we're out of touch with this kind of thing. Any recommendations would be grateful as well as negative feedback on what not to get.

We have been told by our neighbours that their ovens are uselss, they take too long to heat up and forever to cook anything.Not sure if they have useless models or whether it's our power supply. we live in Paraje Natural near La Siesta.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks, kiwi gal

We bought a Beko oven from Euronics and it works fine. No problems in a couple of years and it certainly heats up quickly, especially on fan.

14 years ago we bought an AEG Fan Oven from Tien21 and I have been very pleased with it.   Tien21 staff are very helpful - when they delivered the oven they also fitted it at no extra charge.   A few years later we also bought an AEG Hob from Tien21, a different branch though, and again when they delivered it they also fitted it at no extra cost.

I would definitely say it’s down to the ovens they have. We have literally just got back from our new property on the same urbanisation.

The oven in there isn’t the best either so we are buying a new fan assisted one when we are back in January. There is nothing wrong with the voltage .

We looked at a few at Garcia Mubeles I think it’s called, reasonably priced.

Hi Kiwi Gal,

I'd recommend Tien21 too.  We bought a Miele, fan-assisted oven from the Almoradi branch and a Teka induction hob (because it was one of very few brands which supplied 4 ring hobs, rather than only 3 rings), and we were delighted with the price and service.

Kind regards

Hi Kim, I'd always recommend Tien21 for value and service, although we bought our oven at Euronics who also installed.

Regarding the hob, I thought about replacing our Bosch one with an induction hob but one of our neighbours said she had to return hers as it tripped out the power as it was too high. They have a 5kW potencia, as we do. In the end I bought a single ring induction which we plug in when we want to use it.

Have you experienced any problems in that way with your's?

Hi Ray,

No problems with ours, not even since the roll out of Smart meters, despite reports that they're less forgiving if you go over your potencia.

In the mornings, I may have the washing machine on at the same time as hob, microwave, kettle and toaster with no problems - on the odd occasion when it has tripped, it's usually because our pool pump has come on, but I think our supply seems more stable now than it was when we first moved here 3 years ago.  Our rating is 5.75 kw - that's 15% greater potencia, so I suppose that may be enough to make the difference? 🤔

Kind regards,

Kim

Hi, having been in catering for 30+ years, and married for 43 years, I have always used Bosch, I’ve never ever had a problem. I’m under the frame of mind of buy cheap buy twice. 😎

There was a Bosch oven in our house when we moved in, but it was a strange one.

The oven door opened like a cassette and the insides pulled out horizontally, with the shelves one above the other in a block. It was impossible to look at food on the bottom one without taking the food off the top one first. Wierd.

So, after a few burns trying to stir food on the bottom one, we got a Beko, which has done us very well.
