The Bosch HBM56B551B features top and bottom heating, which is unusual. Most of the other big interior capacity ovens that were launched around the same time as the HBM56B551B do not feature top and bottom heating.
There are a number of other ovens which feature top and bottom heating currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper ovens such as the Neff BCR 5522 N[plb_2983676_price].
Alternative ovens which also feature top and bottom heating that you might also want to look at include the Siemens HB55MB551B[plb_2917806_price], or the Neff U17M52N3GB[plb_2911567_price].

4 Reasons Against
Quite Small Primary Oven Capacity
The smallest primary oven capacity of ovens of this age and type is 29L, the biggest is 91L, and the average primary oven capacity is 67L. The Bosch HBM56B551B has a quite small primary oven capacity (only 35 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec ovens that have been available for around the same time as the HBM56B551B.
Ovens of this type and age range in price from £129 to £6,599. We think that this big interior capacity oven looks expensive compared to other ovens of this type and age.
Quite High Conventional Energy Consumption
At 0.96 kilowatt hours, the HBM56B551B has a quite high conventional energy consumption compared to most of the other big interior capacity ovens that have been around for more than a year. The average conventional energy consumption of similar spec ovens that were released one year ago is 1.4kWh, and the conventional energy consumptions range from 0.56kWh to 110kWh.
With a height of 890 millimeters, the Bosch HBM56B551B is one of the tallest big interior capacity ovens that have been available for more than a year amongst ovens of this age. The heights of similar spec ovens that have been available for around the same time as the HBM56B551B range from 470mm to 1,100mm, and the average height is 650mm.
Alternative ovens with a taller height that you might want to look at include the HBM53R550B[pl_2978102_price] (888mm and cheaper), or the HBM13B550B[pl_2978099_price] (888mm and cheaper) both from Bosch or the Electrolux EOD5460A[plb_2913643_price] (888mm and cheaper).
