2 Reasons Against
Does Not Feature Top and Bottom Heating
The Bosch HBM13B251B does not feature top and bottom heating. Most of the other comparable spec ovens that have been on the market for a similar time to the HBM13B251B also do 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 BO87ORA (£495.00), or the BO73ORA (£495.79) both from Gorenje or the Siemens HE23BD510 (£583.70) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
When compared to other ovens of this spec and age, the HBM13B251B's height of 880 millimeters is one of the tallest. Across all the medium interior capacity ovens that have been available for around the same time as the HBM13B251B the heights range from 320mm to 890mm.
3 Other reasons to consider the Bosch HBM13B251B
Released Over Six Years Ago
This medium interior capacity oven was released over six years ago.
The HBM13B251B has a relatively standard width (595 millimeters) compared to most of the other ovens of a comparable spec and age to the HBM13B251B.
We compared this oven to all the other 595mm wide ovens and we think because of it's better review score, the HBM13B221B (£499.99), the HBA43B250B (£399.00), and the HBM13B150B (£499.99) all from Bosch is also worth considering.
At 550 millimeters, the HBM13B251B has a fairly typical depth compared to most of the other ovens that were released around the same time as the HBM13B251B.
There are a number of alternative 550mm deep ovens currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the HBM13B221B (£499.99), the HBM13B150B (£499.99), or the HBM13B160B (£499.99) all from Bosch.
On the plus side it looks quite good, but for me, its downhill all the way after that. The controls are easy enough to figure out but the layout is totally unergonomic, not being grouped by... Read more…
