I am not the primary cook in my house. I actually hate to cook. I had a very old oven that went out and I tried to convince my husband we didn't need an oven. WELL...he bought this oven for me. It literally has changed my life. I LOVE this oven. It is so nice and so easy to use. If I am not using it I am using the timer on it. It heats up fast and it cooks everything so perfectly. It makes me feel like I know what I am doing. There are so many settings you can put this oven on, I used the good old bake setting every time. This oven is really amazing. There are fans that come on to cool it down once you turn it off. I really am amazed that I could like an oven and Bosch really has impressed me with this one. Glad my husband didn't listen to me because my daughters have enjoyed making cookies and cupcakes in it. Well worth the price and Bosch really has me wanting to see what other kitchen appliances they make. Oh and it makes my kitchen look so nice and beautiful!
