Any ideas for which is the best brand and which one's I should keep away from, please? I'm looking for something reasonably priced - around the $1000 - $1500 mark.
Also interested in a good hob, ceramic top, electric with knobs down the side as opposed to in the front.
Any help would be appreciated

I cant help you with brands and prices gail but make life easier for yourself by getting a self cleaning one. they are brilliant. You never have to wash the walls, only the chrome work and glass, and the door, which are all easy to do. it's the walls that are hard.

I noticed this subject is a bit old but would like to resurrect it. I am looking for a new stove/oven which is really good for baking. Years ago I had a Shacklock wall oven and the baking (cakes, scones, profiteroles eetc.) were brilliant. I have had two ovens since, and results are definitely inferior. I know its the oven because when I bake these items
in my daughter-in-law's very old Shacklock the results areonce again excellent. Are there any other finicky home bakers out there that can recommend a good baking oven. Shacklock are off the market now, my last unsatisfactory oven was a F & P and I know very little about the new brands. Here's hoping. Bev

I bought a new Westinghouse Saturn last year, it is not a wall oven though, a full stove and it has a multi-function oven which I find to be brilliant. The stove is old fashioned looking (hubby went right off when he saw it, said it looked like one his mother had) but really upmarket in its functions. I am really happy with it. Check Noel Leeming, which is where I bought it.
Thanks, I will put that on my list.

I'd like to resurrect this question, I need a new wall oven, the Simpson in the house I've moved into is terrible for baking. I'd like to get a self cleaning one, but the most important thing for me is - it HAS to be good for baking. Any ideas please.

We built a new house nearly 3 years ago and installed a Fisher & Paykel
OB60 D Double Wall Oven, got all the Bells and Whistles.
Not cheap but the baking results are excellent.
It is 'self cleaning" but I have never used the function because I never cook meat or any liquid based dish in it that is uncovered.

Ruth did you get a wall oven, I need a new one and would like some advice too
thanks for the advice, I'll look at the F& P. Beachbelle, I haven't got one yet, I did join consumer and get their recommendation for wall ovens, I'm going to take my time doing a lot of research as they are not cheap and I don't want to make a mistake. I can give you the results of the consumer tests if you want. I'm after one that's real good for baking and easy to clean.Sorry I took so long to answer, I couldn't get back into this site for ages
