This looks good but can anyone explain the '4 in one' description. It seems the same as other '3 in ones' ive seen (micro, combination and grill).

Is this in for delivery? or pick-up only? any details plz..thanks
#3
It has a BOTTOM grill as well as top.
A Godsend for pizzas and pastry goods, as well as other items as it heats quicker than the full convection oven, and prevents soggy bottomed food!

Only Sharp seems to have this feature on some models, and I had a bit of a job replacing mine recently as they don't do it on all the range, and other manufacturers don't seem to do it at all!

Fortunately I manage to hit lucky with a deal from www.offeroftheday.co.uk in early December, and only paid £97 quid for a R879SL instead of prices up to about 150 quid (Currently is around £118)- so if this has the same features (NOT suggesting it is a Sharp, btw as it looks different) for that price, with a 3 year warranty thrown in, then it is very good pricing, and I would be buying if mine wasn't SO new.

seems like a good buy heat added

I'm going to get one of these, but is it that hot that it can set you house on fire?

Any sparkys out there?

To my reckoning 2000 watt oven on a normal kitchen ring will equal 8.7A then you might knock on the kettle for a brew 4.1A, then maybe you'll start to make some pastry in your 800 watt mixer 3.5A etc you get the picture.

Would I be right in saying that the maximum load for a ring main is 7200 watts hence 32 or 30 amp mcb, so in effect it would be hard to overload a good circuit. Its just with so many high watt products coming out it does make you think. Nonetheless its exactly what I've been looking for, hope I land one ;-) Hot

If you house has been wired properly, then your Kitchen should be on it's own 32A ring, the oven and hob (assuming they are electric) should be on separate radial circuits, so you would have to have quite a lot of things on all at the same time to pose a problem!

Then there is allowing for diversity too, as the oven won't be drawing 2000w all the time, only when the thermostat s calling for heat.

Assuming your ring main is wired correctly, it will all be protected by a breaker or fuse, so the worst that could happen is that will trip or blow, if the wiring catches fire, then you have a serious wiring fault!

If your kettle really is only 4.1A, or 943w, then it will take an age to boil, most decent kettles seem to be 3KW!

So say we have the kettle on – 3KW
The new microwave on – 2KW
Mixer - .8KW
Total so far is 5.8KW
We still have more than 1.5KW spare before we have a problem.

Most breakers will allow an over-current for a short time too, by which time the kettle will have boiled, and the thermostat on the oven will have probably clicked off, so the oven will just be taking a very small amount of power for the light and turntable!

Well, seeing it is a LOT lower powered (at any one time) than a washing machine or a tumble drier or any number of electric irons, then you have a lot more to worry about before you get round to worrying about this!

...and if you are on rewirable fuses, then the 1.25 or 1.5 over capacity of mcb's will seem minimal, and will probably blow slower than a six inch nail (jsut kidding!) :whistling:

The cable is fine though, after all, in a ring main, it is like having TWO cables supplying the power to each socket outlet, not just the one 2.5mm sq!

Has anyone bought this microwave? Any good?
#12
Hi all, I got one of these. Only used the microwave and top grill functions(cheese on toast) so far. Not the best instructions with it but so far it seems ok. HTH

I had a glance at the box in a nearby Aldi yesterday, (they had several left) and was puzzled by there being TWO grill options only - my Sharp has
1.TOP,
2.BOTTOM and
3.TOP AND BOTTOM
ie. THREE grill functions, this is fantastic for many items, so is the TOP AND BOTTOM at the same time option possible with this one?

A friend of mine is thinking about it, but having seen mine, he would be loathe to get it if it doesn't do this like mine does!

Yes it is, should be ideal for pizza's, pies` and, cakes. But you can't use the bottom grill on it's own, not that I can think of a use for that. HTH.

got one of these last week seems ok for the money.

few little niggles
it doesnt heat the food up as good as my old 700w argos cookworks cheapy in the same time
anything like veg or soup and it seems to want to blow the stuff up making a right mess inside when not covered again my cheapy never did this.

got a question for anyone that got one.
when using the microwave for more than a few minutes the machine will beep when finished the correct time and then it sounds like the fan kicks in for a few minutes then it turn itself off.
is this normal as i see no mention of it in the book.

thanks

Just bought one of these (Aldi Nottingham) since my 18 month old £150 Russell Hobbs one blew something Sunday night (loud noise and flash of light, now doesn't work). Currys wont help me at all. This one looks good (better than every single one in currys and dixons for the price) and has the 3 year warranty (sealed the deal for me) which is great. Ill update once i've used it a few times...

Tho I never shop at Aldi, i do seem to buy a lot of their Electrical goods (PC's, Stereos and now this microwave)... why is it that all the top brands only offer a 12 months warranty - do they not have confidence or faith in their own products to last longer than that - if this is the case, how can they charge top-whack? There are a lot of non-top-brand names i see (especially in Aldi) which have a 3 years warranty - does this mean they have more faith in their products that they are prepared to support them for 3 whole years - speaks volumes to me. I don't think ill be a 'named brand buyer' anymore.

Because they are paying for the TV you may or may not watch, the newspapers you may or may not read and the billboards you may or may not see.
#19
just makes me wonder how non-top-brand names can support their products; to ensure they are 'fit for the purpose' and last a 'reasonable amount of time'. where as major companies with profits in the high millions simply says 'sorry, bad luck you are out of the 12 month period" or maybe it is because they say this that their profits are in the millions....
#20
It's simply because people put too much faith in brand names (Sony being a prime example) and will still buy on brand even if the product is inferior. The non-brands therefore have to try harder. And there's also the marketing costs I have already mentioned (which establish these brands in the first place).
#21
I think you are spot on. I too have put faith in brand names in the past, but i think this has opened my eyes slightly and dont think ill be rushing out to buy the latest brand name like i normally do - ill shop around and support the smaller guy who seem to offer a better service.
#22
Course , if you'r unlucky you've only just seen this, got all excited about replacing your broken microwave, then realised the deals a month old and only jst gone hot.

Gonna go away and cry now........

:oops:
#23
Can you put this directly against a kitchen wall or does it need a good gap to help remove the hot air?
#24
I have a Samsung combi-microwave and the fan kicks in after using convection for a few minutes.

It's normal to expel the heat to the above poster. I can also grill with the door open. I've had it for 17years now.

I'm now thinking of getting a new combi as when baking you have to use the stupid round metal racks. I want one with proper shelves.

I mate of mine had a combi that also had built in rotisserie.

I need a self cleaning one as my gf left me and burnt food has since built up.

Aldi sold the earlier model of this microwave about two years ago and I bought one. It was great and worked well, we used it every day and it died after two years. It also had a three years warranty. Phoned them up and they said send the receipt with a job number which they give me and we will send a full refund which they have done. They also picked up the dead microwave. it just happened when aldi got this one in so hot footed it to aldi and grabbed one.:w00t: not bad I think two years use for free. I was in the shop the other day and they had three more in and my mate bought one two left now.

Yes you can put it against the wall as it has stoppers on the back to stop it going to far back.
#26
Aldi are good. I bought a PC Wireless Mouse 2 years ago and the middle scroll wheel came loose. Took it into the store and they wouldn't give me a new one that had just came in.

Complained to head office. Ended up with 2 PC Wireless Mice and 3 Dab Radios for my troubles.

They have thes ein again- just got one (many in Hereford ysterday still)7But the one down side is very poor instructions
Anyone worked out how to use all the functions?
What does the potato programme do for instance? Does in combo cook? And if so, do you use the metal platter or the rack?
#31
