“do not buy”

Written on: 26/03/2015 by Dicksonpy372 (1 review written)

purchased Howden kitchen and appliances July 2012 - worktops are worn at the edges - oven has today completely died. Options include £130 call out for repair, if possible or pay for extended warranty - however if oven is not repairable will have to replace at own expence. Terrible product and even worse customer service. … Read Full Review

Only thing is I can't afford to change it.There is NOTHING I like about this. By the way I can cook and bake but I worry everytime I use it what it's turning out like… Read Full Review

“Lamona grill is DANGEROUS!!!!”

Written on: 28/02/2015 by JackieDavis (1 review written)

I came online precisely because of the nightmare I've just had trying to grill two burgers in a Lamona grill (top oven on grill setting). Cut to the chase: the grill set oil from the burgers in the tray alight!!!!!! Actual flames when I just happened to look in the door! Worst thing: burgers still raw in the middle and no idea how to cook them as every time I try, it starts spitting and trying to set alight again. Madness! If this wasn't a rented property I'd hoik it out and get a proper… Read Full Review

“Worst oven ever - avoid at all costs”

Written on: 10/01/2015 by Propertylandlord (1 review written)

Completely dead after two years. Slow to heat up, inconsistent with heat so sometimes cooking time was almost twice what the cooking instructions quoted, and very bad at gushing hot steam when opening the door unlike any oven I have ever owned. Fan became noisy, then broke and entire oven was then uneconomical to repair… Read Full Review

“Absolute Pile of rubbish avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 09/01/2015 by euBlackburn172 (1 review written)

Absolute poor quality oven. Burns food all the time. Had engineer replace some parts under warranty, including the temperature sensor. When I had my oven on at 160 degrees, I actually discovered it was cooking over 225 degrees! Engineers said it was my fault though and I wasn't covering food or using oven correctly! Yeah ok, pull the other one mate!!! Anything cooked on the lower shelf burnt all the time. Glad I didn't pay for it as it came with the house, but I couldn't recommend it to… Read Full Review

“Seasring heat escape”

Written on: 12/11/2014 by Daniel394 (1 review written)

Poor build quality, difficult to clean and hard to control temperature ..... but that is only the positive things one can say. When you open the door, even on a relatively low heat setting, a searing blanket of heat streams from the top. Forget for an instant and you will need the cold towels. This searing heat is so bad, I have had to disconnect the kitchen fire detector, because every time we opened the door, it set off the fire alarm. If we were not renting, this appliance would be on… Read Full Review

“worst oven I have ever had”

Written on: 24/08/2014

This oven was bought in May 2014. White smoke filled the oven when the grill was switched on. Only cooks on 160C otherwise it gets too hot on higher temperature. Oven very hard to clean.Still getting white smoke from the grill after 3 months.Had 2 engineers to look at it and was told it is not faulty.It was smoking because of splashes from cooking on roof of the oven. impossible to clean behind the grill element.They suggested I cover food being cooked ( not a good idea when roasting).I would… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/05/2014 by RylieMcNamara (1 review written)

This oven is dangerous and awful comes highly recommended and part of Howdens kitchen. I bought my house a year ago and had a new Howdens kitchen and electric fan oven and separate hob. My wife was using the oven when it made a loud pop sound and caught fire from behind. I've since ripped it out and thrown it in the garden, totally awful and almost burnt my house down stay well away! I was so concerned and worried about my hob too as it was the same make that I decided to throw that out too… Read Full Review

“Fan Not Working!!!!”

Written on: 15/05/2014 by Caz1963 (1 review written)

We moved into our property 2 years ago in July. The house had just been refurbished with a brand new kitchen. Has a built in Lamona oven and hob. Suddenly the fan refuses to work unless I give it a helping hand with a scewer to start it off!!!! This oven is used every day but surely the fan should last a lot lot longer!!!! As it is built in does this mean I need to buy new oven???? Would not recommend Lamona to anyone!!!!! … Read Full Review

“Do not buy Lamona appliances!”

Written on: 01/04/2014 by dudberg (2 reviews written)

Glass exploded on my cooker too. Large oven not working now when selecting fan mode and is useless for making cakes as it just seems to burn the top while the inside is raw. Washing machine doesn't work on one of the cycles and the fan on the fridge freezer is making a really irritating loud noise all of the time. The gas hob has plastic knobs that are really easy to burn. I telephoned Howden's about this when it was still under warranty and was told that I shouldn't have put a large frying… Read Full Review

“Howdens should be ashamed for recommending Lamona...”

Written on: 29/03/2014

Oven markings came off within a few months. We are just about to replace the inner glass on door for THIRD time. The glass has exploded during cooking. Temperatures and cooking Times were not excessive on any of the occasions. This seems to be a huge problem- doesn't take much searching to find a massive amount of unhappy customers. Wish I read more before trusting Howdens recommendation. Howdens have charged full price for a replacement each time. Warranty last for 12 months. Glass explodes… Read Full Review

“Howdens droitwich are shocking !!!”

Written on: 07/02/2014 by Unhappycustomer1962 (1 review written)

I recently went to purchase a kitchen from the droitwich branch well what can I say they were rude unhelpful & I later found out all branches charge the customers 10% more so the builder can make more money and this is true because is was informed of this by a lady who worked in the depot. So as you can imagine I was livid and went to b&q where they were brilliant and I am over the moon with the kitchen . … Read Full Review

“Shoddy and unreliable product”

Written on: 31/12/2013

I purchased a fitted kitchen from Howdens nearly three years ago, which included a Lamona oven. I felt from the outset that the oven was poor quality - something seemed to be wrong with the buttons used to set the time and alarm, and I couldn't adjust them. The oven controls are positioned in such a way as to make them awkward to read - you have to squat on the floor, if your oven is low mounted, and the temperature indicator is not clear. In the time since I bought the cooker and hob, I have… Read Full Review

“Howdens Lamona Oven”

Written on: 10/10/2013

Absolute rubbish. Poor quality, totally unreliable - some parts impossible to source even though the appliance is only 3 years old. Quoted over £400 for a replacement oven thermostat! Will never buy from Howdens again and would encourage others not to until they support their products correctly and sort out their appliance suppliers. Also had an american style fridge freezer with the kitchen; also a Lamona product, very poor quality and unreliable - just like the oven!… Read Full Review

“Dreadful oven and hob not much better!”

Written on: 02/10/2013

When we moved into our new house there was a Lamona oven, hob and dishwasher fitted in. The oven is dreadful it will not cook evenly and cakes are a disaster. I've never had this problem previously with other built in ovens. There is only one shelf and when we rang to see if we could get another one were told £67. What a rip off. They also said that the inner glass door does remove for cleaning so now we have an oven door where the glass is very dirty with splashes etc but impossible to… Read Full Review
