Baumatic In-built Obsolescence leaves the coin purse empty and cold!
8 January 2014
Summary: Had this Microwave oven for a year and 4 weeks, contacted Baumatic who when asked of the common faults with these Microwaves was told by Judith in customer services: "It's not our job to tell you, it's the engineers". When a simple query is shot down with such a hostile tone and manner: one begins to worry about the companies credibility & reliability.
Summary: we bought this microwave and after two years and 5 weeks it stopped working, Beaumatic agreed to sell us a new one with a two year warranty. After two years and 9 weeks this one has gone again. Beaumatic now say they are are once again prepared to sell a new one!! They are no longer in stock but they have a new delivery in December. We wont be taking up the offer and are looking for a more reliable make.
Summary: After just 18 months of light use, the microwave in this combination oven stopped working although the fan oven and grill are still working ok. Baumatic gave us the option to purchase another microwave oven for £123 (with delivery), but we will not be taking up this offer as do not trust a second microwave to last any longer than the first.
Summary: Super value Beko oven: does exactly what it says on the tin. Oven and grill both fast to heat and then retains temp well. You hardly know its on, compared with my old oven. The dials are simple and self-explanatory. Not bothered to read any instruction book, as its so straightforward. All in all delighted with bargain purchase.
Summary: The Baumatic replaced a 12 y o built in Microwave/Grill/Oven which had given up the ghost. It is offered at a remarkably reasonable price, looks good, does the job well, was simple to install - and the instructions are clear. A good purchase.
Excerpt: "I bought this to fit into my new kitchen above a new stainless steel oven. It compliments the other appliance and has been easy to use. So far no issues. It looks better than others that are much more expensive (some of which have less features)...All in all, a good purchase.
