Rated 5 out of 5 by francofile Great product
We bought this mini oven for using when we are away in our motorhome, so far it has proved to be great buy meaning we can cook in the kitchen tent rather than in the motorhome.
Easy to use dials for the top hot plates which can also be used at the same time as the oven which is not the case as with some other mini ovens. 5 stars.

This mini cooker is ideal for the small kitchen or bedsit.
Cook just as you would on a normal full sized cooker, for roasts, grilling, boiling and frying, etc. Easy to use temperature controls.

I have used mini ovens by preference for years. I chose the Holme 28L Mini Oven and Hob because it is one of the few that still allows use of both oven and hob at the same time. I've been using this appliance for about 3 weeks now.
This oven/hob is quite neat and compact but the oven is still a decent size. I would say it will take a large chicken - though I haven't tried that yet. I don't think the oven is quite as effective as my old Cookworks one but it is still pretty decent for an oven of this type.
I find the hob performance excellent. The rings heat up quickly and are more efficient than my old Cookworks version.
My main criticism of the oven/hob is the vents that run along the top of the double skin glass oven door. To be fair, the instructions do say to be careful not to allow anything to go down these vents but in practice whilst cooking on top of the hob it can be difficult to avoid odd splashes etc making their way into these vents. It proved a challenge to clean between the double skin glass so my solution has been to prop a piece of baking (greaseproof) paper across the vents whilst I'm using the hob.
I do like the crumb tray in the base of the oven - that makes the task of keeping the oven bottom clean much easier.
The operating knobs are quite firmly fixed - not flimsy like some I've seen on other ovens.
All in all, I would say it is a decent little appliance for the price. Ordering from Asda was very simple and the next day delivery by courier went smoothly too.

It was bought for my daughter who had no cooker so it has been a good stopgap. She has found it very useful especially over Christmas.

Bought this for my 83 year old mum to replace one similar that the door catch broke. She's really pleased with this one and said it's very efficient and better than the last one. Also said the delivery man was lovely and unpacked it for her and put it in place - very impressed!

bought this as I only had a hob. Stylish seems solid, crumb tray useful, fairly easy to clean, hot plates function well, cooked a whole chicken, roasted well, time in a fan assisted oven would be 1hr 20 mins, but took 2hrs, found the chicken slightly drier, cooked at 180 but still good, will increase the temperature next time, roast potatoes were good cooked at 230, so far it does the job, and capacity is good.
