4 Reasons Against
A Bit Expensive
One customer who reviewed the Smeg SF485 said that it was not cheap. Last year A. Sharples scored the Smeg SF485 60 out of 100 and mentioned “Smeg did agree to pay for the new circuit board, which is good, because it is almost as expensive as buying a new oven!”.
Does Not Feature Top and Bottom Heating
The Smeg SF485 does not feature top and bottom heating, although it is worth noting that most of the other big interior capacity ovens that have been available for more than two years also do not feature top and bottom heating.
It is worth considering other ovens which also feature top and bottom heating including the SFP125[pl_2017152_price], the SF109[pl_2628523_price], or the SF372X[pl_2651828_price] all from Smeg which also has a higher rating.
