simple time change made hard
recently bought an eletrolux 614 series oven from a reputable * trader and installed by their tradesman went to change the time on the clock as per instructions, no go looked up on internet and find out I have to turn of oven or remove plug I can not do this without turning of at fuse box as oven plug is behind the oven I would have to remove oven to pullout the plug . should not the manufacture insist this is mounted in the in accessible area per install instructions as clock can not be set as per instruction manual. I am 84 yrs and can not remove oven to set clock every daylight time change,
regret buying the electrolux EVE614SC
I purchased 2 of these 600 Electrolux ovens to fit into my old space, what a mistake they cost about $900 each and do not cook well at all does not matter which setting you use if you bake or fan force middle does not cook and outer burns if you try cooking cakes or pizza does the same thing very unhappy with this product avoid purchasing this as you will regret it unable to clean between glass door as need to dissemble door to clean between glass door, but the cooking is terrible anyone that believes this oven can cook obviously they cant cook themselves, I cant urge you enough don't make the same mistake as after almost a year I"m replacing them.

Rubbish - Do not buy
Terrible oven. So expensive but cooks very unevenly even with fan cook on. Burns the edges, the middle undercooked. I literally sit in front of it and watch to see when the edges are done and then take them out, then rotate and spread out the center biscuits. Cooks cakes badly as you can imagine. Absolute rubbish. Ovens have one job - to cook properly - and they cant get it right.
Oh and the handle came off after 12 months and it wasn't covered under the extended warranty. Wear and tear they said. Electrolux did eventually send me the broken washer for free but I had to find the part, order it and install it myself - over an hour for this run around. They wouldn't send anyone out without charging me.

Electrolux EVE614DSD and EVEP614DSD Too much Fancy, Not practical
Bought these two ovens, replaced side door left and right White Chef Electrolux ovens. Was disappointed as they didn't make the side door openings anymore, best thing for my bad back like half the population. Firstly they are not identical in size the Pyrolytic is an inch taller opening. The clocks are different and dont match one lighter and bigger the Pyrolytic is smaller and duller. Second the knobs are too smooth and round and are slippery and difficult to turn so I found out after using them. Next the Pyrolytic cleaning and you still have...to remove gut the oven and clean everything that is not attached anyway, then still do a wipe out, then use the oven which takes 90 mins quick or 180 mins long clean, chew the power right, still then you have to wipe it out again and put everything back in. But does avoid chemicals which is better for the lungs. The panel doesn't light up so it makes it impossible to see what function your on, and so many useless functions, overkill. Also the light and timer need to be simpler. Personally if I could go back, I would not have bought these ovens. But they are black and heat up well and look pretty and the quality is better than most other brands. If Electrolux wants to make these oven perfect dont have push in slippery round knobs but odd shaped to grip/turn better, next light up the panel and take half the functions away all you need is fan oven and no fan oven and the same for grill that's it. Next side door openings left and right. Do that and ill buy those ovens again!. Love the colour of the ovens the design, quality just not practical. Your ovens 15 years ago were better what happened?
Perfect family oven
I searched for a very long time to find the perfect oven that would suit family cooking and was safe for my children to be around.
The Electrolux certainly has not disappointed! I was tossing up being the Electrolux and the Bosch within the same price range and went with the Electrolux due to its huge capacity.
The oven itself looks super sleek in my kitchen. The glass doesn’t leave obvious finger prints which is great when my kids touch the glass which happens quite a bit.
The glass is cool touch so if the kids do touch the glass while the ...
Most difficult oven for cleaning ever
I purchased this pyrolytic oven as it was self cleaning and I thought that would save time and be easy. The reality is it takes three adults to get the door off it’s so difficult and then the cleaning of the glass and the hassle of getting it all back together is also really difficult. Then you need to lift a heavy door and get it back on the oven before you can start the pyrolytic process. Anyone who is a bit older has arthritis or who simply doesn’t have the strength to lift this heavy door is going to have major problems. I could clean my ol...d oven in its entirety in a tenth of the time this oven takes to clean the doors alone. I was advised they were a crock by both an oven serviceman and a professional oven cleaner. I only wish I had listened to them. Do not be taken in by the marketing. This is NOT an easy clean oven but extremely difficult. Never again. Get the liners save your money and spend far less time cleaning.
Good... and Bad, but overall OK
Purchased as part of a new build 18 months ago. I cook almost every day, so it's very much the 'workhorse' of my kitchen. It heats and cooks well. Lots of useful cooking modes.
My dissatisfaction is more with the structure of the oven. I feel that the distance between the grill element and the grill tray is a bit too much, and therefore the grilling function takes a lot longer to cook than it needs to.
The telescopic shelf holders can be fiddly when putting trays into the oven, especially when hot, and sometimes damn annoying; When n...

Happy customer but there's always room for improvement
I must say what an absolute joy it is to use this oven. it heats up pretty quick on most of the oven settings. best oven ive had for baking. The only down fall is the grill take a really long time to get going even on the max grill function but apart from that my family and I are pretty happy with it.

This is the same oven as the Ikea Kulinarisk, just rebadged. Rapid heat function is a very handy function and it tells you how long to go. I also love the defrost function. Recommended as a cost effective oven for a basic kitchen reno and couldn't be happier. Mine also has the steam function which I am still learning to use, but so far so good! I also like that it is Australian based and getting parts will not be difficult if required. I have a lot of trouble getting out of the kitchen now!
Excellent family oven
Great oven, easy to use and clean. Great reliable cooking results. Well made and well finished oven. Pyro clean is great and so too the meat probe. Simple to operate and follow menu display. Setting time is easy and so too using timer functions. This is a great family oven.
Extremely satisfied with this oven. The features are brilliant with the telescopic oven trays that come standard with this model. Food is cooked evenly and quickly. I love the rapid heat function saving time..highly recommend this oven. Looks great and easy to use. Cleaning the oven, especially the glass is so simple without having to strain my arms scrubbing..
Control panel and surrounding cabinet work get hot after oven turned off
I had my new Electrolux oven installed about a month ago and have been disappointed to find that the control panel and the surrounding cabinet work gets very hot after the oven has been turned off. I have tried to contact Electrolux by phone and email to ascertain if this is normal or whether I should keep the fan going after I have turned the heat off but they have not replied.

Fabulous stylish kitchen addition
Sleek glass face fits well with modern kitchen design. Very hard to mark with finger prints. The shelves are all on rollers, including the grill tray, making transferring food in and out a breeze. It is simple to change the level of the shelves to allow for larger items. Well worth it, decently priced as well
Door collapse - plastic door
Purchased one because it was so called Australian Made, has had so many issues with it since I purchased it and am really regretting it. The door has collapsed with the plastic lugs that hold the glass in, the inner glass has shattered and requires a whole new door. The plastic handle has cracked from the heat and the shelves have started to fall apart!
Best oven I have owned in 20 years
We recently put in a new extension which included a new kitchen so I did a lot of research and read a lot of reviews on ovens . We have owned 3 ovens in our lifetime of owning a house and so far haven't been that impressed with what we had before.
We purchased this Electrolux oven and the matching pyrolitic in the same brand as we have two ovens in our new kitchen. We were very careful in our selection process to not be drawn in by branding ... you shouldnt just buy a product because you see it on a home Reno show and you need to keep up wi...th the jones' and buy smeg or Miele for double the price This oven is great, it even has a rapid heat setting so you are not waiting for what appears to be ages for it to reach the temperature you need.... the price was mid range so it's not a cheap and nasty oven but a medium range in price. The sales person from good guys referred to it as the top of the range in medium priced ovens. We installed this oven in October 2017 and it's perfect and easy to use. The temperature hits the mark and my family even comment on how much nicer my cooking is... I think we have suffered too many years at the hand of a cheap oven with intermittent temperature. Cooks scones and bread to perfection Can't fault anything on this oven so far
Looks really good except faulty design on plastic Door
Got one in new house supplied by the builder. Really happy with the design, looks great! However there is a few faults which make me wish I purchased another brand. The plastic door frame is faulty, has already cracked after 6 months use. Plastic door handle, the bar handle is metal, but what connects to the door is plastic - again also cracked. The enamel on the inside of the oven has cracked and there is rust in the oven.
Definitely wouldn't purchase again, great looks but poor build quality.
Oven has all the heating features that are required.
Appearance looks slim and modern.
The oven handle is loose so when you open and close it, doed not feel firm.
Did not come with PowerPoint cord so i had to buy a separate one and ensured the voltage was the required.
Stylish and Affordable
This Electolux oven looks excellent in our new kitchen. The black glass with the chrome features is great. It performs exactly as expected for a basic level model and I have nothing to complain about. It is a small step up in price from the rubbish base brands/models but looks like it is high end.
My husband and I bought this oven in November 2017 and are so happy with it. It comes with 2 wire racks, grill pan and oven drip tray. 2 of the runners are telescopic which makes it really easy to pull out the rack. The oven selections are simple, all you need and easy to use and understand. Setting the clock is so simple rather than having to press 2 buttons which has been my previous experience!! But best of all it heats up quickly and does the best roasts we have ever had!! Love the look of this oven too with the black and silver!
Love the look of it.
Seems to roast a perfect chicken and baked dinners are always a favorite with the family. Cakes seem to cook a little uneven towards the back of the oven. Its hard to see the temperature selection selection with the black glass. I dont have to worry about children burning themselves as the oven door is triple thickness.
Questions & Answers
Sliding shelves pop out automatically, seems to be a regular problem, any idea how to fix
Hi there, we recently bought an Electrolux evep616sc 60cm . after some advice please .the top sliding shelf which has the grill plate on seems to slide out slowly when we open the oven door. this may be a problem when grilling as opening the door allows the grill plate to move outward. is there something we are doing wrong or have incorrecly installed ?
We have not had this problem with ours. I’d be talking to the supplier about this for sure.
All the best
Just purchase our oven which was installed today. The first time I tried to use it the top sliding rack came out almost burning me as I tried to put the baking tray on the lower shelf. I’m a little concerned as I have now seen this problem pop up on some reviews. I haven’t seen a solution yet. I have sent this issue to Electrolux support today. Awaiting reply. I’ll you know when or if I hear back.
The light stays on while cooking. How can I turn it off?
