The stunning DB490DFTProf is made up of two fan ovens, a highly responsive hob and electric grill. The electric ovens have loads of space to cook in – the lower left one has 47 litres of space, while the tall, right oven has a whopping 76 litres. Both the ovens use fan cooking to circulate heat around the cavity. This ensures they heat up quicker to get your dinner on the table as soon as possible. Fan cooking also ensures an even temperature throughout. Dishes on different shelves cook at the same rate – great for batch baking.
On the hob there are five really responsive gas burners, one of which is a super powerful wok burner. This is perfect for cooking up a hot stir fry as the large flame covers more of the wok for an even and fast heat. All the burners have cast iron pan supports which are sturdier and more durable than enamel ones. They give you better support while you cook.
The hob is LPG convertible too, which is great if you don’t have access to mains gas. This hob also has a flame safety device, which automatically turns off the gas should the flame go out, and so dangerous gas leaks are prevented.
When you’ve got a busy day you’ll appreciate the programmable timer in the main oven. It lets you preset what time you want the oven to come on and off. Pop your meal in the oven early in the day, set the oven to come on an hour before you plan to eat. You can be out all day and the dinner will take care of itself.
Inside the ovens is really easy to clean as they have an enamel coating which is really smooth and resistant to grease and dirt, spills will be easily wiped away. The top left cavity is a variable temperature grill which allows you to utilise a small area. This is great for saving energy when you’re only grilling for yourself.
