7 Reasons For
Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Ovens
On average ovens made by Bosch are rated 80%, which is in the top 45% of all oven manufacturers that we have looked at.
Recent Price Drop of £150.00
The HBM56B551B has dropped in price by £150.00 in the last 36 days.
Two Separate Ovens
The HBM56B551B is a two separate oven oven. Most of the other big interior capacity ovens that have been available for around the same time as the HBM56B551B only have one separate oven.
We compared all the other 2 separate ovens to this oven and we think cheaper ovens such as the Smeg DUSC36X (£799.00), and the Neff U15E52S3GB (£799.00) is also worth considering.
Features Top and Bottom Heating
The HBM56B551B features top and bottom heating, which is unusual. Most of the other ovens of this type and age do not feature top and bottom heating.
We compared all the other ovens which feature top and bottom heating to this oven and we think the Bosch HSG636XS6 (£1,418.72), and the Siemens HB672GBS1 (£844.09) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Other ovens which also feature top and bottom heating that you might also want to look at include the Siemens HB55MB551B (£899.99).
This oven has an Electronic timer, which is typical of many comparable spec ovens that have been around for more than a year.
Quite Big 2nd Oven Interior Capacity
Across all the comparable spec ovens that were released around the same time as the HBM56B551B the 2nd oven interior capacities range from 35L to 71L, and the average 2nd oven interior capacity is 44L. At 66 liters, the HBM56B551B has a quite big 2nd oven interior capacity compared to most of the other ovens that were released one year ago.
+2 More reasons for
40 Auto Programs
The Bosch HBM56B551B is a 40 auto program oven. Most of the other similar spec ovens that are a comparable age to the HBM56B551B have between 2 and 86 auto programs.
4 Reasons Against
Quite Small Primary Oven Capacity
When compared to other similar spec ovens that have been around for around the same time as the HBM56B551B that we have assessed, the primary oven capacity of the Bosch HBM56B551B of only 35 liters is one of the smallest. The smallest primary oven capacity of big interior capacity ovens that are a comparable age to the HBM56B551B is 29L, the biggest is 91L, and the average primary oven capacity is 68L.
The cheapeast ovens of a similar age and spec that we found costs £130 and the most expensive costs £6,599. We think that this oven looks expensive for a oven of a similar spec and age.
Quite High Conventional Energy Consumption
Big interior capacity ovens that have been on the market for more than a year have conventional energy consumptions of between 0.56kWh and 110kWh, and the average conventional energy consumption is 1.4kWh. With a conventional energy consumption of 0.96 kilowatt hours, the Bosch HBM56B551B has a quite high conventional energy consumption compared to most of the other big interior capacity ovens that have been around for a similar time to the HBM56B551B.
The shortest oven of this spec and age is 450mm tall, the tallest is 1,100mm, and the average height is 650mm. When compared to other ovens of a comparable type and age to the HBM56B551B, the Bosch HBM56B551B's height of 890 millimeters is one of the tallest.
If you would consider a oven with a taller height then you might want to look at the Neff U15E52S3GB (£799.00) (888mm), or the Electrolux EOD5460A (£649.99) (888mm) which is also cheaper.

3 Other reasons to consider the Bosch HBM56B551B
Released Over a Year Ago
This big interior capacity oven was released over a year ago.
With a width of 595 millimeters, the Bosch HBM56B551B has a fairly typical width compared to most of the other ovens that are a comparable age to the HBM56B551B.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 595mm wide ovens currently available including the HBG675BW1 (£742.08), or the HBG636ES1 (£775.36) both from Bosch which is cheaper.
Ovens with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the Bosch HBG676ES1 (£853.02) (595mm).
At 550 millimeters, the Bosch HBM56B551B has a fairly standard depth compared to most of the other big interior capacity ovens that have been on the market for a similar time to the HBM56B551B.
We compared all the other 550mm deep ovens to this oven and we think cheaper ovens such as the U17M42S3GB (£668.99), and the U15E52S3GB (£799.00) both from Neff or the Stoves SGB900MFSe (£673.97) is also worth considering.
