Hi, here is my experience of our new addition, the Combi between a convection oven and a microwave function of the AEG KME768080M. You can never know in advance how everything works once you buy a nice-looking oven. I also look at reviews from others and that is why I would like to write a piece about my experiences intended for others who are still going to make the purchase.
It takes some getting used to using this oven. Everything is touch key operation and it takes empathy to use the oven. I have good news for the app users among us. Pretty soon I figured out to download the app and connect it to the oven. You set the preferences via the app, this is easier than expected. The AEG app is easy, works well and you can do a lot of the operation with the app.
For example, the settings are easily accessible via the app, but also on the device itself. Empathy is very important here because a lot can be set.
What can you set? The times are of course adjustable and the temperature is adjustable and the choice used is adjustable, but this is of course no surprise.
So what is different in terms of settings? The oven software is written so that you can apply the weight of your dish to use the oven. The display also shows your cooking and baking assistant. The oven adjusts the times to the weights of your product and also to the type of your product. If you want to bake bread, there is a function for that, if you want to prepare meat, you can also use a nice preset for that. There are many more like this one.
In addition, there are plenty of functional choices, including: grilling, keeping warm, warming plates, hot air, frozen dishes, pizza, dough rising, bottom heat, top heat, au gratin, baking bread, circulation grill. Enough choice. Do you have a favorite position? Then this oven gives you the possibility to use this function easily, a kind of shortcut without having to go through the entire menu.
Does using this oven take some getting used to? Yes definitely. This is mainly due to the number of options that are in any case more than our previous oven.
Is this oven difficult to use? No not at all.
You make good use of the prescribed functions that the manufacturer has already developed for the user. In addition, you will of course find the options that you expect from an oven.
Is this reliable? Yes, I am quite surprised about the correct functioning of the adjustable options. So far we have baked delicious dishes: let me take you into our arts for a moment: cloud cake, butter cake, normal lemon cake, various oven dishes, sandwiches have come out of this oven very successfully. We think the warming plates function is super, because a warm dish on a hot plate gives the dish a great start to the dinner. That is not the same as heating your food in the microwave function and I will also tell you a bit about that.
The microwave function takes some getting used to. On the right side of the control panel is the button for the microwave. You have to hold it down for a moment to activate the microwave. What we found difficult in the beginning is to master the microwave better. However, this has now succeeded.
We can say that the microwave functions also work fine, you can regulate the wattage as well as the time. There is a standard fast function of 30 sec, but this 30 sec fast time can be adjusted if you frequently use a different fast value. During the preparation, the time can be adjusted if you still want to add some time to it. Time is a nice adjustable item anyway, so the wattage also has many settings.
Everything we've baked or prepared in this oven so far comes out as desired.
Just put another pre-baked baguette in the oven, the oven set to pre-baked bread. Put bread in it, put it on and the oven takes care of it itself. Delicious crispy baguette as a result. Nice brown and no rottenness.
This (Combi) oven does not have a turntable, but grids, a baking tray and a deep baking tray. That makes this oven quite complete. If you compare this oven with the bigger brother, it does very well. If you want to prepare large quantities, the consideration is of course whether this oven is large enough. We have enough for our family where we are three and regularly with 5 people.
I hope that this review has helped others, that's what I do it for.
