Seems a good price especially given it's Bosch not your cheap wickes electric rental job

Stunning price!!

I paid about the same for a Beaumatic one so this is amazing! Wish this deal was around when I needed one.

I need a new oven !! fits the bill !!!

Looks like a great deal!

Does it matter what type of hob you have?

Got a cheap lamova (probably beko) gas hob and oven. Hob seems fine, would just like to replace the oven part with this bosch.

This oven does not come with 13am plug, it has to be hard wired to fuse box by an electrician.

Like every other oven.

Presumably 'eye level' cabinet fitting, not 'under counter'??

That's not correct though is it? Some do come with a 13amp plug attached.

I'm sorry but your are incorrect, not every oven need to be connected to fuse box, some have a 13am plug.

It's 16A draw (3.8kw) so would often be on its own ring main (not spur) at 32A. I wouldn't recommend anything less than this, such as fitting a plug, for safety reasons.

I'm not an electrician but have designed wiring systems. It would probably work on a spur with the correct hardwired switch but any weaknesses anywhere and your house may well become a pyrolytic cleaning house!

Indeed, that's NOT correct. Many modern ovens are 13A or less, it's older, high tech or pyrolytic ovens that require a higher current draw. These should be hardwired in with the correct size triple core wire direct to the Consumer Unit (with an appropriate fuse). Consult an electrician if unsure or if your house wiring hasn't had a recent safety check.

Self clean ?

Sounds like mumbo jumbo

This oven will fit a standard single oven housing, either under counter or anywhere else you have a suitable space. As noted, this oven is rated at 16 amps so will not be suitable for plugging into a 13 amp socket. Please consult an electrician, else you may end up with considerably more heat than you bargained for.

Beware, Bosch ovens have a high control panel failure rate due to poor insulation.

I've never known a modern electric oven to be plug and play, but I can stand to be corrected, I've always hard wired them in, plugging an oven into a ring main socket is asking for trouble IMHO.

Slightly off topic, I've seen what happens when you plug an electric shower into a 3 pin plug, the guy thought he had done it correctly, but didn't realise the consequences as socket started to smell fishy hidden in a stud wall, he couldn't find the source of the smell until smoke started pluming out of the socket on the neighbouring kids bedroom stud wall..... Luckily nobody died!

Nevertheless.
Heat added for a good deal

Lamona is Howden joiners brand, you can replace oven only (assuming you don't have hob controls on the oven section - though I've not seen this system in the UK).

If have a Neff (same house as Bosch) with pyrolytic cleaning.

It is very good. After the cleaning is done all that remains is a fine dust residue which you wipe out with a damp cloth.

pyro is great, ultra high hear cycle leave ash residue after cleaning, been recommending these for years and would not have an oven without it. that said Bosch are not the brand they used to be but this is a v good price. should be standard oven aperture for built under or in single oven housing. if in doubt use a sparky, this is not OK for standard connection.

Is it not just whack it up to full power for a certain amount of time ?

Can you not use a single Main Fuse for Hob and Cooker, wire this to a 45 AMP cooker switch and take a spur off to a JB for the Oven?

Thanks..
Put me off now as sounds abit more trouble than what it is worth if it needs hard wiring.. Hadnt seen that on the descriptions..Am sure it is easy enough - but would rather go with a 13amp socket draw

you say it as if you need a degree in quantum physics to install this.

2 ordered, had to phone up as their payment system having issues. Will sell one and keep one, making it almost free

You would have to have the ring back to the Consumer Unit at something like a 60A capacity wire, which is *thick* and expensive. The current capacity of the switch has to be less than the wiring capacity to be safe. For example, a 30A switch works perfectly fine on a 6A circuit breaker (MCB) with 16A wiring (lighting wire) but if you then draw 30A you will trip the MCB. If the MCB is faulty you will, in effect, turn your entire lighting system into a resistance heater - also known as an electric bar fire.

That should read "the current drawn from the switch should be less than the capacity of the wire"... Or words to that effect. I've not been to bed yet.

I bought one, tcb 2,1% and quidco 2 %

I am unsure what capacity the current wiring is going to the RBC, it is however quite thick, a lot thicker than standard lighting wire.

Agree - customer service is very good and not surprising they are the biggest supplier in the UK and putting those knuckleheads at Currys etc out of business.

Thanks OP. Been looking for ages for a new oven, this fits the bill ages as I wanted to get a deal. Havent seen anything like this out there. Delivery is next month but I can happily wait.

How's it asking for trouble if the oven was designed to run off 13A plug, as some still do, even modern ones? If it's designed for that purpose and something happens, it will trip, just as hard wired would at the appropriate level?

Thank you - great deal, ordered and delivery set for 5th September.

Can someone find me a good deal on a good induction hob now, then I can get started on kitchen renovations!

Great deal!

Thanks OP, just bought one. Our oven is on the way out and I was looking for a new one (possibly a Neff). This seems like an excellent deal so ordered one. Not getting it until September so I hope they do not cancel.

This is the stainless steel version, HBA63B251B.

Does anyone know if the black version is on offer too? model is HBA63B261B.
