5 Reasons For
Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Ovens
Ovens manufactured by Bosch generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
Very Low Forced Convection Energy Consumption
With a forced convection energy consumption of only 0.69 kilowatt hours, the HBG656RS1 has a quite low forced convection energy consumption compared to most of the other ovens of this age and type. The forced convection energy consumption of big interior capacity ovens that are a similar age to the HBG656RS1 range from 0.68kWh to 1.3kWh, and the average forced convection energy consumption is 0.79kWh.
Quite High Total Power
The Bosch HBG656RS1 has one of the higher total powers (3,650 Watts) amongst big interior capacity ovens of this age. The average total power of ovens that have been available for a comparable time to the HBG656RS1 is 3,500W.
Very Low Conventional Energy Consumption
The Bosch HBG656RS1 has a fairly low conventional energy consumption (only 0.87 kilowatt hours) compared to most of the other ovens that have been on the market for more than a year. The average conventional energy consumption of big interior capacity ovens that were launched around the same time as the HBG656RS1 is 1.4kWh, and the conventional energy consumptions range from 0.56kWh to 110kWh.
Ovens of this type and age have weights of between 4.7kg and 79kg, and the average weight is 42kg. At only 32 kilograms, the Bosch HBG656RS1 is fairly light compared to most of the other comparable spec ovens that have been available for a similar time to the HBG656RS1.
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Feature Top and Bottom Heating
Most big interior capacity ovens that have been on the market for around the same time as the HBG656RS1 do not feature top and bottom heating. The Bosch HBG656RS1 is no exception to this as it too does not feature top and bottom heating.
We compared all the other ovens which also feature top and bottom heating to this oven and we think the B47CS34N0[pl_2555228_price], or the BCR 2522 N[pl_3105353_price] both from Neff is also worth considering.
Very Loud Noise Level
When compared to other ovens of a comparable type and age to the HBG656RS1 that we have assessed, the HBG656RS1's noise level of 50 decibels is one of the loudest. Similar spec ovens that were released one year ago have noise levels of between 44dB and 50dB, and the average noise level is 47dB.
Only One Separate Oven
Most ovens of this type and age have one separate oven, including the Bosch HBG656RS1 which has one separate oven.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 1 separate ovens currently available including the Neff B47CR32N0[plb_2555212_price], or the Fisher & Paykel OB60SL7DEX1[plb_2878031_price] which is cheaper.
4 Other reasons to consider the Bosch HBG656RS1
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this oven was released.
The HBG656RS1 has a pretty typical height (595 millimeters) compared to most of the other big interior capacity ovens that were released around the same time as the HBG656RS1.
Other 595mm tall ovens currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper ovens such as the Bosch HBG675BB1[plb_2781694_price].
Ovens with a taller height that might be worth considering include the Siemens HB678GBS6[plb_3113821_price] (595mm), or the Neff B48CT38N0B[plb_2889804_price] (595mm).
At 595 millimeters, the Bosch HBG656RS1 has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other ovens of a similar age and spec to the HBG656RS1.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 595mm wide ovens currently available including cheaper ovens such as the Neff B47CR32N0[plb_2555212_price].
