can they accurately build an appliance with a 20 year life?
As with anything I'd say it's pot luck how long it lasts.
it does seem overly expensive for a single oven, but in the context of a deal if this in fact the cheapest price for this model then I can't see why it shouldn't get hot.

This one: blanchford.co.uk/sho…tml free delivery over 250(looks to be the same one), have not used the site, but on the challenge is cheaper.

They can, and they do. All appliances are made with a pre-designed average service life - the quality of components and the build quality determines that. With Miele it's 20 years. Way, way less than that with almost all other manufacturers.

This one happens to work out at not much more than the equivalent Neff/Siemens/Bosch, but it's far better quality. Check them out and you'll see what I mean. It's a bit of a bargain at this price, particularly as this model has most of the features found on much more expensive models. Believe me - I did a lot of research on this!

It's Miele so it's the best there is for the domestic market in my opinion. Their white goods technology is better than anyone else's and the products are built to last. They quite often offer 10 year guarantees by redemption on things like washing machines and vacuum cleaners.

Voted hot. Just got the top of the range one with touch screen and pretty much everything else and it's really amazing. So much better than the crummy zanussi it replaced.

Just a point of interest that this oven cannot be plugged into a 13A socket and requires a dedicated cable from your FCU. If you don't have a dedicated cable the cost is £200- £400.

Good point - though I assumed that was the case with all ovens, and that they all had to be hard-wired. Are there still standard ovens that don't have to be hard-wired?

yes there are ovens that can be plugged into a 13a socket, if that help,

I suppose it depends on the maximum kW rating, and this one's 3.6kW so it would have to be wired in. I'm guessing the effective maximum for a plug-in would have to be below 3kW but I'd still be happier to see it wired into a separate circuit.

German manufacturing at its best.

Well that's a surprise - I'd have expected this to approach Absolute Zero! There are more devotees of Miele engineering, build quality and long life on HUKD than I thought! That's quite encouraging - and maybe good news for the planet.

Yes I just had to return a Neff oven as it was 16A and have a replacement Neff 13A series 3. Luckily free exchange, they even swapped it out on Sunday morning within 24h of me calling, god bless ao.com

two thirds of the way to a grand? my 15 yr old b&q green enamel paint oven was still going strong last year when I chucked it because I found a nicer looking oven chucked out in the street by a neighbour.

Certainly HOT! My crumby old Bosch oven needs cleaning so I think I'll buy this one, much easier!

if its supposed to last for 20 years, why is there only 2 year warranty???

My oven is still going fine - 16 years old.
Looking a bit tired admittedly, but I presume Miele's 2 yr guarantee and 20 yrs built to last promise would not cover looks.

Simple - because a 20 year design life doesn't always mean 20 fault-free years. And a 2 year warranty doesn't necessarily mean that an item will fail in year 3.

​then it's not a 20 year built design.......
if it built to last 20 years this implies it will last 20 years (fault free)

it's a bit like the 20 year old broom that over the years has had a new handle several times and a new head a few times as well........

I'm afraid you didn't quite read what I said - you missed the key word 'always'. The 20 year design life is a hard fact - but it's impossible to guarantee that no faults will arise in that period, because you don't know the way it's going to be used.

However:

Long service life

"Forever better" – The founders of Miele stamped this guiding concept onto their first washing machines at the beginning of the twentieth century. Their basic idea was to use high-quality materials and elaborate manufacturing methods to create products which delivered exceptionally high quality and a long service life.

Today, "Forever better" remains the company's central motto and is reflected in the fact that Miele is the only manufacturer in the industry that tests its products for a service life of 20 years. The requirements that Miele appliances must satisfy in these life-cycle tests are defined in the company's own internal standard (MWN 197/000). For domestic appliances, this standard contains the following specification, for example: washing machines are to be tested for 10,000 operating hours. This is equivalent to 5,000 programme cycles over a span of 20 years when using an average of five programmes per week as a basis. The specification for dryers is also 5,000 programme cycles (five per week), which is equal to 7,500 operating hours. The difference in operating hours in these two cases is the result of the shorter programme cycle times for dryers. Miele expects its dishwashers to remain functional for 15,000 operating hours, which is equivalent to 7,500 programme cycles when used daily over a period of 20 years.

I bought the lower model H2561. Fantastic quality. Miele don't do double ovens so I bought 2 single ovens. This price is great and well worth it. Miele often do cash back deals when you buy from any supplier. So always check out what is available on there website promotions.

thank you

​you have exactly proved the point I was making......

you cannot say it's built with a 20 year life......
nothing (electrical anyway) can be guaranteed fault free for any amount of time due to the random nature of component failure. the best and only thing they can do is offer a guarantee (not that it won't go wrong) that if there is a fault they will repair or replace within their guarantee period.

To say this particular product is designed with a 20 year life span is silly. It could completely die after 5 years.......it's no different whatsoever to any other similar product, you could buy an oven for £100 and it could last 20 years without the bold claim.

As I said it's complete pot luck, you MAY be edging your bets slightly with a model such as this if it contains superior components with better reliability but dumb luck still plays a part

I guess it all depends if its a Friday night oven or not!
I still think it should come with a 5 year warranty at the very least, even if they then charge you for the following 5 years. I think two years is a pretty poor show if they really do have faith in their products.
A Beko comes with two years and is only £150

See post 3 above, which deserves its own post as a separate deal! Still £637.63 and John Lewis should match it because it meets all the Never Knowingly Undersold T&C.

Inevitably, though, they'll never lower their own price from £849 even though they know they're being undersold, but you may well be able to persuade them to match it on an individual basis.
