“A load of scrap.”

Written on: 16/01/2022 by Johnmcaleese (1 review written)

Had a new kitchen installed. Unfortunately this included a Lamona oven. Complete disaster over the Christmas period. Does not cook within any recommended cooking time. Avoid like the plague!!… Read Full Review

“The worst oven I've ever come across. Been cooking 55...”

Written on: 14/01/2022 by YaelWeeks490 (1 review written)

I had a Lamona single oven previously and it was ok. Upgraded kitchen so bought double oven and it is truly terrible. I advise everone to steer clear. I even had an engineer look at oven as I was convinced it was not working properly. He tested temperature and said it was ok, it wasn't!… Read Full Review

“The sun cooks bettee”

Written on: 05/05/2021 by Tinafluff (1 review written)

These ovens are terrible and I'm lumped with it in a rented apartment! Like other comments either burnt on the bottom or stone cold on the top despite it being fan assisted, absolute joke, the manufacturers had a right laugh when they made these. Awful don't buy, spend your money on an oven that cooks, the sun stands a better chance of producing a warm meal, they must have employed Stevie Wonder to draw up the plans!… Read Full Review

“Digital clock broke down last August,”

Written on: 09/11/2020 by nocustomerservice15 (1 review written)

Kitchen installed August 2017. Lamona fan oven with grill. August 2020: the digital clock controlling the oven and grill malfunctioned, fortunately within guarantee. The engineer installed a new clock. November, 10 weeks later, the clock has malfunctioned again, so no oven or grill. I contacted Howdens in Hemel Hempstead but because the guarantee had expired, they were not interested in helping me. The manager gave me a free phone number for Pacific, which I rang but nobody answered the phone… Read Full Review

“rubbish oven”

Written on: 08/06/2020 by llwynon (1 review written)

I bought the Lamona fan oven and grill when I had a kitchen fitted 9 years ago. I stopped baking several years ago due to lack of demand when my son went to Uni. He has returned home while job searching and asked me to do some baking. How I wish I had changed this oven before now.Uneven baking despite fan rattling away,temperature control innacurate. Either rock hard tops to cakes or soggy bases! Next job after lockdown will be another oven but not from this brand… Read Full Review

“USELESS!”

Written on: 12/05/2020 by itsme1010 (1 review written)

Can't understand why they manufacture such useless ovens. I like baking my own bread, and with my previous oven, they always came out good. But with my Lamona one, they were always rock hard, heavy and absolutely awful. It took time until I realised the oven was to blame and not me, but in the meantime I lost my confidence in baking bread. Cakes are also awful. The only thing that came out semi-decent were biscuits. Top rack half burned bottom rack half raw but still semi ok. Chicken/meat also… Read Full Review

“Avoid, Avoid, AVOID”

Written on: 20/02/2020 by Geoffford (1 review written)

DO NOT BUY ANY LAMONA OVEN! It does Not cook anything properly. Food is either burnt or uncooked! At the same time. Cold sot in centre of oven even though its a fan oven. Have to cook food for longer than specified to get it edable, but then it is burnt. We are replacing ours ASAP… Read Full Review

“Load of rubbish”

Written on: 31/03/2018 by SidneyHays (1 review written)

I have had this useless piece of equipment since July 2014, the fan packed up in March 2015, luckily within the guarantee. After service practically non existent. Had new fan fitted, packed up a few weeks later. Engineer then fitted new fan, new thermostat and new element. Cooker has just packed up again just in time to ruin Easter, thanks Howdens. I would not recommend Lamona cookers to my worst enemies, I just wish I had never heard of the make… Read Full Review

“Don't touch with a bargepole”

Written on: 26/01/2018 by Garrett315 (1 review written)

Had this oven for 2 years and deeply regretting it - already had the fan replaced twice and element replaced and now, judging by the noise its making, the fan probably needs doing again. Temperature is hard to gage - on the same alleged temperature one day food burns, next it undercooks. Grill function is worse than useless - takes ages to heat up and then just burns everything. Howdens not interested.....I did try the fit for purpose approach but they couldn't care less… Read Full Review

“avoid”

Written on: 12/08/2017 by hfhgldmjbsjajsa (1 review written)

I was given one of these ovens by a friend who had hated it so much he wanted it out of his house, immediately. On its maiden cook in our house, chicken and roasties, it got half way through the job then exploded. Luckily nobody was near the oven at the time but the kitchen floor was showered with red hot bits of glass that melted through the vinyl. The chicken was a right off too. Never again. … Read Full Review

“What a piece of junk!”

Written on: 08/04/2017 by 329Robertson (1 review written)

We had a new kitchen fitted in 2013 and got a fitted lamona fan oven. So far the element has failed 3 times, element once and seal twice. This week the fan is making a terrible noise. I've tightened everything up and it's still making a noise. Probably needs a new fan but I've had enough! I'm pulling it out and and throwing it down the skip where it belongs!! Never ever buy a product from Howdens. Utter rubbish!… Read Full Review

Janettedean's Comment

Written on: 28/10/2017

I also had my kitchen fitted in 2013. My Lamona fan oven failed just after the guarantee ran out. The fan had to be replaced and paid for. The thermostat is faulty and I have to have an oven thermometer attached at all times otherwise everything burns (ruined 2 Christmas cakes on the trot!!) Now the door seal has fallen apart.
The Lamona dishwasher broke down and was unrepairable this year so had to be replaced and the hob, also Lamona, had to be repaired out of guarantee. The only thing not to go wrong is the extractor hood (watch this space) The fridge freezer and the combi microwave are fine and NOT Lamona!! I would NEVER buy another Lamona appliance.

“Howdens Goole Saved The Day”

“Not safe”

Written on: 20/04/2016 by 1962Grady (1 review written)

Do not waste your money I have followed guidelines and oven still produces lots of condensation and when open the door steaming water runs out of oven and down my new kitchen cupboards and onto floor. The respond I got was it is down to price !!!! So its ok to buy basic as long as you don't mind risk of getting scolded and cupboards ruined. I am so angry and don't want others to go through it. I know oven is bottom of price range but still didnt expect to be unsafe and damaging units it's… Read Full Review

“DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS BRAND!”

Written on: 29/02/2016 by Juliet220 (1 review written)

Within less than 3 years of having our Lamona oven and cooker hood fitted, we have had an engineer out 5 times to repair our faulty cooker hood and 3 times to repair our oven. Our oven was last 'repaired' in about 4 months ago and surprise surprise it has started making horrendous noises again! It sounds like someone is drilling in the oven. I have complained so many times to Howdens and I told them that had I read all the reviews beforehand I would never have purchased any Lamona products… Read Full Review

“No to lamona”

Written on: 04/01/2016 by Amyk666 (2 reviews written)

My lamona oven has always been noisy. The thermostat failed in 18 months and the oven went off with a bang completely just after the two year guarantee ha finished. For Hodens to fix it now you have to buy extended warranty at £24 a month, plus all the months since the guarantee ran out.. Even in this throwaway age, I would hope to have about 5 years from an oven… Read Full Review
