Just saw this on the Lidl app and thought hmmm that could save some money in the long term. I've never had one let alone used one so I've no idea if they're all that. However, based on the comments from one posted just over 2 years ago I would say it is a good buy.

Ignore the 120w power consumption, slight typo on Lidl's part! I'd guess it should be 1200w which is about 1kw less than my main oven.

Spacious oven with 2 rack levels and variable temperature control from (°C): 100 - 230
With a 60 minute clock timer with audible signal
Grill rack, baking tray and tongs included
Size (cm): H25 x W40 x D35
Capacity (L): 14
120W
3 Year Manufacturers Warranty

Thanks, the app wouldn't accept the direct link to the image (_;)

Ideal for short lengths of cooking, if longer time you may find a main oven will be more economical as these are generally poorly insulated.

I've owned two of these over the last 8 years and they're pretty good. I used them several times a week and averaged three years out of each one. They heat up quickly and the fact you can use top and/or bottom heating elements is useful plus you also have a fan you can use to boost if you wish. The only slight negative is that the internal bulb blows quite quickly but with a glass door its not an issue. Slightly confused by former comment on poor insulation? The door is double walled as is the rest of the oven. You can easily cook a 2/3 kg chicken or roast in it.

Thanks for the heads up, tempted.....

​Thanks for that info, much appreciated

If 1kwh = 10p cost and you use the oven for 30min 4 times a week = 2 hours use, so saves 20p per week by using 1kwh less electricity than a standard oven, if it lasts 5 years it saves £25 or pays of its cost in 2.5 years.
[If my kwh calculation is correct]
Good deal even better if it breaks in warranty and you get a refund (_;)

When I said earlier that a 'proper' oven can be cheaper for a long cooking period I meant that these ovens are generally cycling on n off with greater frequency than a large well insulated oven. I have both and my large oven only has to come on very occasionally to maintain temp, the small oven cycles with much greater frequency. That said these small ovens are great.

I pay 13.02p per KW (not including standing charge @ 15p per day). So I would only save about £6.76 per year (1 hour use per week approx) but it would take 4 years to pay for itself....hmmm....not that excited about it any more lol.

Hmm, there is a chance then that it could end up costing more to run then if it comes on more than a 'proper' oven to maintain its temperature. I think I may well give it a miss now.

As I said earlier it's great for short cooking times, heating bread, ready meals etc.

Not much use for me then. I don't do ready meals but I do occasionally cook some part baked rolls, not enough to warrant £26.99 though. Its a real shame as I would have used it as my main oven and only used the 'proper' one if something wouldn't fit in the mini oven. However, I didn't realise the measly amount of money it would actually save me until today which killed it for me, even more so when you said they go on/off a lot to maintain the heat within them.

Mine was not a technical reply. As I say its my opinion. It's also my opinion that they are useful if you have the space and money. Don't let me put you off.

Bump!
Will be buying this tomorrow, thanks OP

I got put off by the on /off a lot comment. Transpired the saving was nothing like I'd hoped for anyway.

my mini cooker which packed up after today after 6 years of everyday use cost 30 quid so when i saw the identical model from lidle i went straight down and bought one .as it turned out this one is smaller inside does not light up inside it sounds like a fan running but ive cant see any vents for one inside . its not as good as the previous silver crest model but fooled me look is the same . well i got some chips in it now so then i find out its performance ................? auntie bessies of course they are the best oven chips

I was a little disappointed it didn't have an internal light but I reheated my dinner in it & it worked fine.

I've bought the latest one - our third over the years - and am very disillusioned. The other two performed well and saved me using the 90cm oven. No internal light now, but the main problem is it just doesn't get up to temperature. Chicken tonight was only warm round the edges after an hour at 200+. It is now in the big oven and hubby is hangry! Could just about reheat meals, or do a pizza, but anything that needs proper cooking I suspect the power rating is too low.

How can I purchase this Oven/Grill please. Our nearest Lidl is Blackwater but no telephone number available.

I doubt they will be available now as this was 3 months ago. However, a quick Google of Lidl, Blackwater reveals this...

Address: 21 London Rd, Blackwater GU17 9AP
Phone:0370 444 1234

Agree totally with the you about temperature. Needs to be run flat out. Also the shelf and tray are too narrow, so when any weight is used they collapse down to the elements. Going back to Lidl next week under their guarantee, which they are usually very good about. I do keep receipts!

Only bit that I will be sad to lose is the rotisserie function.
