“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

“Keep well away even if it's free!”

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

we've just had a Lamona double oven fitted, and it is excellent too! Reading the other poor comments, we must have been lucky!

“Very poor quality oven”

Written on: 14/08/2013

The oven cooks food reasonably well but condensation and liquid seems to get between the inner and outer glass doors which are impossible to take apart and clean. Only had this oven a couple of months when all the markings (temperature, grill etc) washed off despite NOT using anything abrasive. Now I have to guess where to turn the dial to for temperature etc. Have had quite a few ovens in my lifetime but nothing as poor quality as this. Would definitely never buy this make again!… Read Full Review

“HOWDENS - GET A GRIP!”

Written on: 10/08/2013

I purchased an expensive kitchen from Howdens and the Lamona equipment was included in the package. Disaster.....microwave and dishwasher playing up constantly and paying out for parts to fix. DON'T buy this brand. AND HOWDEN'S.....stop pushing this rubbish onto people. I no longer recommend Howdens to anyone....because of this. So disappointed… Read Full Review

“Worst Electric cooker I have ever had!”

Written on: 30/07/2013

Had a beautiful kitchen fitted and went with the Lamona Cooker to finish it off! What a mistake, within a year I had problems with noise when fan on, I was told it was out of guarantee time! 2 years on I have had to replace the fan, I bought this through a local electric shop as Howdens were going to charge ridiculous amount!! The light blew and melted onto cooker and now the ball bearings have gone !!!! Wish I had read reviews, the cooker was not cheap either !… Read Full Review

Hi I'm sorry to hear that Howdens appliances have let you down so badly, we're just about to have our initial Howdens design meeting and am very worried after reading these reviews. Can you please tell me which Howdens you are dealing with? Dereham, Tunbridge Wells, Leeds, Thetford? Hope you can get it resolved soon, Good luck.

“rubbish”

Written on: 02/05/2013

I am 64 years old and have always had no problem with my ovens. Having had a new kitchen fitted with Howdens these appliances come with the range. They cook unevenly so whilst one part of the food is burnt the other part is not cooked. This weekend had a roast in the oven for the family when all of a sudden pop the glass shattered into tiny shards all over the food. Good job my grandchildren and dog were not nearby. The mess was terrible to clear up. I am not getting it repaired but will… Read Full Review

“Why didn't I read this before buying!!!!!!!”

Written on: 11/03/2013

I made the huge mistake of buying a £10k kitchen from Howdens Burnley, and the design included four, yes four of these ovens, My biggest gripe with them is you cannot clean them and strip them down so if you get food splash in between the glass then it's a pig to clean, any tips from others on this website would be appreciated The ovens are not constant temperature wise so we only use the one, we have complained to Howdens on 5 occasions, phone calls are NEVER returned and don't get me… Read Full Review

“Lamona Howdens Rubbish”

Written on: 28/12/2012 by mycat (3 reviews written)

I had Howdens kitchen and appliances fitted 2 yrs ago. Consistent problem with oven and grill, no back up service, unable to get manuals, or help. After many calls, Howdens/ghda asked for £140 for engineer to come out. Its broke 2 times.I am still unable to set the clock, and without the clock set the oven will not operate, there are hundreds of unanswered forum questions to this particular problem all over the net so I cannot be the only one with problems. Wish I had gone for a better brand… Read Full Review
