I have one !Posted 3 years ago
Apparently it’s a very good one.
Following Mrs CFSB ‘s departure a year ago, though , it hasn’t been used to do anything other than nuke the odd lazy ‘ pinger’ meal.
So, as a Luddite, ( read dim wit ) ,of the highest order as far as grill and oven functions are concerned, it’s the traditional oven, or , the George Formby grill for me .allthepiesMember
I’ve got a Panasonic and rate them.
I’ve not used it as a full-on oven but have used the grill function to brown crumbles etc 🙂
Mine has a Jacket Potato mode which microwaves the spud + puts the heater element on to brown the skin at the same time.

I have one and its a very useful addition to the kitchen. It occasionally gets used purely as a microwave but more often it’s used as a smaller oven or a grill. It does the best non open fire jacket potatoes that I’ve eaten, inside is soft and fluffy outside is crunchy.Posted 3 years agosomafunkSubscriber
My oven/cooker blew the element 4 odd years ago (along with the grill element) so as i didn’t have a microwave i bought a cheap/small combination fan oven/grill/microwave from aldi. I think it’s brilliant, for me having an oven so small means less electricity used but i guess if there’s two or more of you in a household then you may need a larger oven.
I’m down to 3 rings on the cooker as well but that’s not an issue, i only use one at a time so when they all go pop I’ll take the cooker to the dump, it’s lasted 22 years so i can’t complain.Posted 3 years agoCHBSubscriber
We have a Panasonic one and its BRILLIANT.Posted 3 years ago
Find it really good for chilled/frozen pizza, but especially useful for part baked bread.
They can pay for themselves as they are cheaper to heat than a big oven, so for a couple of people they are ideal.
I would happily recommend Panasonic.CougarSubscriber

Same here. The microwave is the same as any other (well, it’s actually better cos I got a high powered one, but that’s nothing to do with the combo side of things).
The oven is, well, a small oven. The only real issue I had with it is cleaning, uncovered microwaved food can splatter up onto / behind the element and it’s a sod to clean behind. Make sure anything explody is covered and you’ll probably be fine.
Since replacing the cooker for one with a working oven I don’t think I’ve used it as anything other than a microwave since. In fact, until this thread I’d forgotten all about the oven feature. Might be an idea to run it in combo mode next time I do jacket spuds, see how they come out.Posted 3 years ago
