I've had this microwave on price watch for over two years now and it has never been cheaper. It's usually £245 or more. Also available for the same price at John Lewis. Read More

Why
#4
paid 299 for this last year in use every day fantastic

Sorry if this is a stupid question but just want to know what is different in this compared to some other sub-£100 combination ovens.
#6
I've had one for 18months and paid way more. but to be honest very dissapointed. Majority of the time it doesn't heat the food uniformly also the plates get really hot but the food is still not hot enough. Does look nice though. it's huge BTW.

Not in the same class as the old panasonic we had for 12 years. Sent the new one back, plenty on the market half the price.

So what did you buy instead that was as good as your old Panasonic for £100?

Well for one thing I don't think there is a "true" combination convection microwave for less than a £100. There are cheap combination ovens that claim to have a convection function but do not actually have a convection element to heat the cavity. What they have is just a grill element in the roof, so you end up with an uncooked bottom and a burnt top.

Russell Hobbs was £60 with 3 years warranty included. Been working for 4+ years with no problems

Thanks for that, I'll cancel my order for the Panasonic, pop back four years in my Tardis, and order the Russell Hobbs ;)

Seriously though, does the convection function on your RH actually work properly? The review pages on Amazon, for every one of the current Russell Hobbs combination ovens, have loads of comments saying that the microwave function is fine but the convection function doesn't heat up enough and food comes out uncooked.

The RH I have as 2 elements, both can be used to pre heat the oven in 3/4 minutes.

Personally I would recommend, but I expect they have cut corners over the years.

I know Panasonic have done the same with their low end and middle spec convection combis which now only have a single combined grill/convection element with apparently unimpressive convection performance. This was annoying to me when, two years ago, I went to buy a replacement for our superb, but now 15+ year old, mid-range Panasonic when the door mechanism failed. So, after looking at the competition, I decided to buy one of these. It's just I wanted to pay closer to £200 rather than £250.

As it was I managed to fix the door mechanism in the old one and have waited for the price drop, which has turned out to be excellent timing because the magnetron has just started failing with microwave performance dropping by about 25% Hopefully we will get on with the CF778 better than you did with yours.

Shame that Dualit don't make microwave ovens.
