One day my old oven stopped working, so I had to buy a replacement. After a careful search on the internet the IKEA oven caught my eye. However I thought better to see it before I buy. So I planed a visit to IKEA in Croydon, in which a Chinese superstore Wing Yip is nearby.

About IKEA:

IKEA is the world's largest furniture retailer. It was founded in 1943 in Sweden. IKEA mainly designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture such as beds, desks, appliances and home accessories, etc. The one Iím writing about is one of IKEA kitchen appliances, given the full name, IKEA FRAMTID OV5 Oven.

Packaging and Features:

My IKEA oven comes in a recycled box. It contains an oven, a drip tray, a grid, an instruction for use and other documents. The oven is approximately 65cm wide, 63cm high and 69cm deep. The oven is 41.2kg and in a black colour.

The oven has three turn buttons. From the left to the right they are functions, timing and temperature. It provides 5 functions: top and bottom heating, Grill, Dual grill, Turbo grill and Pastry function. It has one 25W light bulb inside and the usable volume is medium. The area of the largest baking sheet is 1200 cm≤. The voltage is 240V and the efficiency class is A.


Usage:

IKEA is not responsible to assemble it. So I paid a qualified technician to do it for me. Before using the oven you should remove the accessories from the oven and heat it 200 degree for about an hour to eliminate the smell of the protective grease and insulating materials. Keep the window open during this operation.

After the operation you can combine the 5 functions for different ways of cooking. The oven turns off automatically at the end of the set cooking time.

Price and Availability:

In the UK you can buy IKEA FRAMTID OV5 Oven in IKEA stores as well as their website. As a guide, I paid £209 in July 2011, £60 less than the original price. Itís currently priced at £239.

My personal experience:

I have to say I donít have much experience about oven. In IKEA oven area there were some choices. The one I bought was the cheapest. There was a white oven in same model too. However it was sold at the original price. I would not like pay extra £60 just for colour. So although the black oven doesnít match my kitchen, I still chose it. After almost one year use Iím satisfied with its performance.

The five functions can totally meet my needs. Inner glass on oven door is smooth and the door is removable for easy cleaning. The oven door has a child-proof lock, which is not useful for me though.

The only downside to me is the oven does have a timer, but it doesnít have a clock to show you the time. I was used to a clock on oven. Out of habit I like to look at the clock when I cook, even I donít use the oven.

In conclusion IKEA FRAMTID OV5 is a very basic oven, which does its job. Iím pleased to recommend it if you are looking for an oven in this price range.

I didn't know that IKEA were selling ovens - a good idea though with Win Yip temptingly almost next door there in Croydon! R. xxx
