Faulty, dangerous, unreliable, terrible customer service
This oven has been a huge disappointment, as has the customer service. It can take several minutes to ignite the burners, just standing there pushing and turning the knobs while it ticks hoping for it to light every night- very frustrating. Then often when it finally lights it will erupt in a burst of flames and you want to be standing well back when it does. The power of the burners is irregular and you have to judge how hot it is by the size of the flames under your pot as they differ from use to use. When I had a technician come to look at i...t under warranty he suggested I call another technician he knows (whose charges start with a call out fee of $400 plus hourly rate) who might be able to fix it. That was the only solution offered. Also while under warranty the digital display started flashing and became dim, this was replaced. It has developed the same problem again a year and half later, I have just phoned Arisit Warranties and they informed me that issues fixed under warranty are only covered for THREE MONTHS. So when your part fails again, after only that short period they don't care. My oven is just over three years old. I would never buy from this brand again. Definitely avoid.
10 years young
Bought a CP 059 MD.3 (X) F model Ariston in 2009. It's been a great appliance, cooking for a large family.
Looking to change ovens so checking what others think. This model is still around, without change, so shows how good it must be.
All the functions work well. It has stood up to 10 years of cleaning without a hitch. Only thing I replaced this year was the oven seal, which was readily available on-line and an easy job. Well done ARISTON
Bought a CP859 in 2005. Looks great and two dinner plates fit side by side in the oven. Thermostat failed when first switched oven on. Repaired under warranty but blew when the technician switched oven on. Third thermostat lasted for several years. Fan element blew as did top element. Door seals replaced three times. Stencils wear out if front of oven cleaned so fascia replaced and it no longer gets cleaned Jets on two of the burners replaced right front burner still pathetic.
Clock had to be replaced.
Thermostat has failed again. Looking to buy another brand.
Looks great but prefer a reliable oven to cook with.
Purchased in April 2005 at Austec for $2,500.00.

It’s an okay oven, but parts keep breaking and aren’t cheap to replace
We have had this oven in our home since new. It is now about 7 years old and in this time we have been through 2 oven fan elements (now on our third) at over $100 a pop plus an electrician to install. And about 2 years ago the time display started to dull and now doesn’t work at all. This was over $200 just for the part so never bothered to get it repaired.
We find the oven gets hotter than what it is set to and the trivet for the small burner is too big for our little pots. The cast iron trivets also aren’t quite right, causing pans and pots ...
Purchased in December 2011.
Excellent at breaking
Out of warranty now (9 yrs old) and the following is broken/need replacing: clock, back right burner, door seal, thermostat (not always reliable), oven door hinges, upper element (grill doesn’t work), oven door seal. I have already replaced the following: oven door glass (it just shattered while I was cooking!), oven door seal (3x). Even when it was working it had cold spots and wouldn’t bake evenly. I feel cheated. I cook a lot and endure this price of garbage every day. I’m saving for a replacement.
Ariston 90 cm free standing oven
This is the most terrible oven/gas cooker, and I recommend you don't buy this oven. Everything that can go wrong has, and Ariston do not want a bar of you once you have gone out of your 2 year warranty. All components of the oven have broken down or do not work, from the electronic ignition for the gas burners, to the oven door not closing, to the light in the oven failing, the front light panel where you choose options for the oven also faded and does not work, to the oven door not closing, which by the way cost $675 to fix and the repair ma...n said, bad luck can't fix it. it is so disappointing when you $3000 and it is really so badly made and there is not service. full stop. Cleaning the depressions where the gas top is, is impossible, I even tried oven cleaner, but that just took the coating off. so in summary, steer clear.
A good stove
After 3 years and a couple of initial problems I would like to add to my initial rather negative review and say that I am quite happy with my Ariston stove. I love the wok-burner which provides very high heat necessary for restaurant quality Asian cooking. Also the extra frypan trivett, the small, simmer trivett (which I also use for my Bellman Espresso coffee maker). I'm enjoying the large oven space and the self-cleaning option. I do find it necessary to clean the glass door however, and for this I use a gentle non abrasive cleaning agent and soft cloth.
Best appliance I own
Great adjustable burners& amazing temp control in oven,I can make yogurt in it 37-38 degrees.Timer very easy to use.Have to use fifty words so I am now wasting space but I am very happy.The first night I cooked at 9 pm (normally 6pm) because I had to throw away the old Eurolec (thank goodness)& the 3 pizzas at once were perfectly cooked
Ariston has designed a brilliant oven here.. it comes with a 5 year warranty as well as being an Italian company .. they know food .. most importantly the oven has only around a 3° variation in temperature so is a very accurate cook due to the way they have built in the insulation.
Oven Door is almost impossible to remove for cleaning inside oven. Self cleaning does not work well.
Temperature indication is not accurate, according to oven thermometer.Otherwise cooking is reliable.
Timer is easy to set.We have not had any other problems since installation. We had to ask for the slide out trays as they were not deloivered with the oven. It turned out that was because it was a misprint in the brochure. However Ariston honoured the mistaken offer and sent the parts.

Poor quality smoke machine.
I have had my oven for a year and a half, within this time the ‘self cleaning’ oven has never self cleaned, rather it fills the house with smoke. Any oven cleaner used voids the warranty. The included oven tray warped after first use and is now completely unusable. The rubber seals have deteriorated, becoming cracked and brittle. I wish I had purchased another oven. This one is a cheap imitation of a good oven.

Ariston Oven - so good!
We have the 90cm upright Ariston oven with 5 gas hobs. It’s about 10 years old now but still works perfectly. We cook on or in it almost every night. Gas can take a little getting used to if you used ceramic tops before but once you get used to it gas is brilliant. Oven has all the usual functions - fan bake, bake, grill. I also use the timer and auto cook settings so I can pop dinner in the oven and leave it to cook for a specified length of time when I have to drop/ collect kids from activities in the evening but want to come home to a cooked dinner. Overall I have been really happy with it - except it needs a good clean, I see Ariston does a self-cleaning version now and seriously considering an upgrade!!!
Dodgy hinges, fan broken - under 2 years old
The oven is a lemon. It was installed less than two years ago and needs repairing again.
The door seal was repaired after 10 months and then broke again a week later. This has never happened on any other oven I've owned. It remains broken because I'm not paying for the repair of a part that will immediately break again.
The fan is now broken and the oven can't be used. It's less than two years old!
I would be very hesitant to buy Ariston in future, the quality is exceedingly poor.
Unlike the glowing reviews which are clearly fakes (written by the same person presumably) this one is a real one!
High End Oven at affordable price
Purchased just recently and very impressed, early days though but with that said the wok burner lives up to my expectation and beyond. Love cooking with a wok and the double burner allows you to get the heat in the wok really quickly . We are on lpg and the burners I believe are just as efficient as being on natural gas . Didn,t think it was possible to cook a chook straight from the freezer to the oven and this was another impressive feature this oven had, yet to use the rotisserie however I am sure it will live up to my expectation. Looks impressive in the kitchen and look forward to many years of trouble free cooking
Oven door seal issues
Like many many other reviews, our recently bought home has a 7year old ariston cp059. Obviously the seals are useless however can we get new door hinges to try and fix the ajar door issue. It's not good to be wasting electricity. I'm starting to use my outside hooded BBQ. ...and we are in nz
This item is very convenient especially in my fast paced life and environment- where there is no time for any malfunctioning kitchenware. It's preheating is quite fast and it sufficiently heats up in time for putting any food in. It performs its job without burning any dishes and hence i'm overall quite happy with this product.
Very happy about this purchase. Good size and able to fit quite a few things on it. Very nice and it's a good buy. The 5 burner stove works well when I have a few pots and pans on the go together. The only problem seems that it's easy to have scratches when clean the stove.
It is a pleasant shopping experience as it has brought a lot of convenience to my fast paced life. I used to cook food with much oil and smokes, which is unhealthy to our bodies. But food cooked by oven is much quicker and healthier. I can also make some cakes.
Nice size as it is big and able to fit many things on it. The fire is very big and make the food become well done quickly. I love it so much. Very nice and worth to buy. I suggest you all need to buy product like this. Very nice colour also and safe to use. Recommended to buy this product
Questions & Answers
I need to replace the fan element in the oven. The back plate has unusual screws. What do I need to be aware of when tightening.
Please contact our technical department on 1300 762 219 who can assist you with further information on replacing the fan element.
Our CP 059 MD.3 (X) F is just out of warranty and surprise, surprise, the rear element appears to have blown. It sounds like this is not uncommon given it has happened to another in this thread 3 times. Given the cost of the oven, I find this unacceptable. I called the repairers provided by Ariston and the call out prices are exhorbitant and don't include replacement of the part there and then. Please advise price of a rear element. Oven is working with fan on all settings except for the Rear round heating element + fan option (fan is working but no heat). I want to know what the cost of this part is so I am not totally ripped off. Very disappointed.
Our Ariston CP859MTX is just over 2 years old and tonight, the front glass door of the oven just exploded. Is this model still under warranty for this fault after 2 years and 2 months??
When such an unreasonable occurrence happens, the maker will usually help out.
It's not the retailer, but the manufacturer you should contact. It's outside expectations.
Even if the warranty is up, that's not good enough for that appliance
For replacement of the glass and repairs of the oven, please call Arisit Warranties on 1300 762 219.
