Looking to Buy IKEA Oven for The Kitchen

Im in the process of renovating my apartment that I plan to live in for 12 months before selling.

While shopping at IKEA for furniture I decided to check out the appliances and was surprised to find out that

  1. Most are made by the Elextruox group (AEG, Whirlpool. Electrolux)
  2. Come with a 5-year Warranty
  3. Made in Europe
  4. Well priced

What I haven't been able to find much of are actual reviews of how people find them apart from a handful of short reviews on the IKEA website itself. Very limited content on YouTube too!

Does anyone have any experience using their appliances? Im looking at both the KULINARISK $999 (steam feature) and the top of the range FINSMAKARE $1,499

The oven will be used mainly for baking bread and pastries. Interested in to hear from anyone who owns these ovens and their experiences baking bread/pastries.

  • Im in the process of renovating my apartment that I plan to live in for 12 months before selling.

    Depends on what buyers perceive as better value I would say. You don't want to buy a $1k oven and the apartment isn't going to sell much more than a $500 oven. It is like most people don't realise Skoda is a budget version of Audi.

    • That's true. The challenge I have is I don't know how long ill live there for. Could be 6 months or 3 years hence the desire to get a decent oven that doesn't break the bank.

      And if we go into another lock-down I'm imaging the bread I'll be able to bake.

    Had one for 6 years, it was an ikea named one, one of those Nordish names. It has been faultless and is still going perfectly.

  • Love my Ikea oven. Not sure on the name, sorry, but it was priced around 500-800 I think…?

    Very easy to use (pop-out dials, beeps when it reaches target temperature, etc). Oven door doesn't get hot enough to burn a toddler if they try and touch it.

    Much more even cooking and more room inside than the cheapo no-name oven it replaced.

    • thanks for the feedback. I was surprised by how much value you can get for the lower end models. Some sub $700 models have self-cleaning

  • They don’t have any branding on the front so it will look to prospective buyers like any generic oven.
    I like how when something is manufactured in a well regarded manufacturing country, it will nominate, Made in Germany, France, Austria, etc. But when made in Turkey, Spain, Poland, Albania, Slovakia etc its branded more vaguely “Made in Europe”

    • Most of their appliances are made in Italy and even include the Electrolux logo alongside the model. End of the day I guess they are Ikea ovens unless I etch out a fake Elextroux logo on the front glass panel lol

  • The value for the oven will be "new oven still with 4 years warranty". That will be about it for an apartment.

    • Would you believe most of the extended warranties don't transfer to another owner or location. Which makes it impossible to sell appliances to others along with the extended warranty. Beko is one company that doesn't allow the transfer or location or owner.

  • Thanks for the comments folks. I started off looking at Electrolux ovens (1200-1500 mark) before realising they have a limited 2-year warranty.

    Then thought of buying a well-featured Beko steam oven for $999 with over 90l internal capacity and 5-year warranty.

    But after reading reviews of after-sales support on productreview.com.au I decided to go down the IKEA route.

    Most of their appliances are made in Italy and even include the Electrolux logo alongside the model. I did think of how to market them when it comes time to sell and was thinking of stating they are built by Electrolux.

    The apartment is located in an older 1980s complex in South East Sydney (Matraville) and unlikely to attract buyers in my opinion who would come looking for specific appliances.
