I'll swap you my experience for a piggy back/hijack on your thread, since I came in to ask the same question
We built last year, builder sales guy talked me out of a Meile and into a Baumatic. I did also visit our local Retravision who highly recommended the Baumatic - the guy said something like "quality is as good as Meile but half the price". Oh the lies!
In 10 months, at no time have both our Baumatic rangehood and oven been working - ie we have had one broken at all times. The rangehood, even when working "as it should" can barely hold a piece of paper up at maximum suction and is so loud even in our large open plan living area you can't watch TV or have a conversation when it's on. After dozens of calls over those months, I have finally told the builder to come and remove both appliances ASAP (even though Baumatic had eventually offered me a replacement) and I am demanding the builder give me a refund. The quality has been horrendous but even worse, the customer service from Baumatic's local agent and call centre absolutely pitiful. So, I would avoid Baumatic at ALL COSTS (although, if you're considering Belling, you are probably not looking at the cheap brands anyway!).
From my oven research online, and I suspect my experience at Retravision, a resounding theme seems to be that salespeople get different margins/commissions/whatever on various brands and their recommendation or otherwise often relates to that. I haven't read much in the way of reviews online on Bellings though.
So, once I get my teeny tiny cheque back from the builder, I need to find a 90cm standalone oven/cooktop (as well as a wad of cash it looks like
). I am leaning towards a Bosch HSB745256A, as I have and am in love with my Bosch dishwasher and front loader. So here's my hijack OP, sorry and I hope you don't mind, but can anyone comment on the quality of Bosch ovens? Or recommend a quality brand of oven that does a 900mm freestanding dual fuel unit?
Thanks and sorry again OP !
