Awesome product. At a reasonable cost.
Reviewed in India on 16 October 2018
I had bought this product after reading reviews about a lot of different OTGs. I was looking for a price drop and bought it during the Amazon Sale, for about 8,700. Was delivered the next day itself. I am putting up the review to share my experience and a few precautions to avoid disappointment after the purchase.
The product is an OTG , not a microwave oven. You can google the difference, this is for making a perfect dish, not for a quick cooking or reheating.
Upon delivery , I unpacked it and saw if all the components mentioned are there. The product had everything as mentioned. I wanted to be sure that everything worked as expected, so tried to connect it to the power outlet. That's when i felt that the cord is too too small, max 1 1/2 feet and it was a 16 amp connector. Made a few adjustments on the kitchen counter and connected it. Turned it on with rotisserie,both top and bottom heating and the convection fan function , to make sure that all the rods are working and the fan and the rotisserie are spinning. In a few min ,I felt a little heat on the glass and the inside was well lit with light, could see the rotisserie rod spinning, but could see or hear the convection fan running. I turned off after a few minutes, carefully touch the heating elements to see if all where working , felt all the six rods where hot. Tuned on the convection function with the door open and i could feel the air from vents (so the fan was working and super silent). The outside of the oven gets hot too, be careful and keep it out of reach to children.
It is better to have a oven thermometer as the temperature on the dial is just for setting, to know the actual temp we need an oven thermometer.
I have tried making pizza , it came out awesome.
Some pros and Cons:
Looks elegant and good quality built.
Heats up really quick (about 10 - 15 min).
Accessories supplied, gives a good start to the oven experience.
Size is good enough for a large pizza.
The light and the convection fan , makes cooking a lot easier.
Quality could have been better (I found that the door needs to be a little adjusted every time i close it)
The power cord is too short.
Overall satisfied, with the product.
Updated : I just got the oven thermometer, verified if it reaches the set temperature. I had set the temperature at 230 and the temperature in the oven was 250 when it turned off the heating elements(heard a click when the temperature reached 250),after about 10 min . The extra 20 degree could have been because I had placed the themometer on the top most slot, anyhow it reached the said temperature. But the heat is not very evenly distributed, as the fan is too slow.
