Hotpoint UH53WS Double Built-Under Electric Oven, White

Product information

The streamlined white UH53WS built-under double electric oven from Hotpoint makes for an efficient and easy to use addition to your kitchen.

It boasts a Circulaire cooking system in the main cavity, where the fan and rear element circulate even heat between the shelving positions. This reduces cooking time by 20% and temperature by 10-20°C compared to a conventional oven, and is ideal for pastries and batch baking.

The Slow Cook setting maintains a constant temperature of 90ºC and cooks casseroles to perfection. The Hotpoint UH53WS also features a defrost setting. This uses the Circulaire fan to circulate ambient warm air around the food, and speeds up the time taken to defrost food. This is perfect for items that are too big for your microwave, or items that you don’t want to start to ‘cook’ as you defrost them, such as a frozen gateau.

The top oven features conventional cooking and has a twin variable grill, the half grill option providing a solution for small portions with maximum performance. Cleaning the Hotpoint UH53WS is straightforward too, thanks to enamel linings, while double-glazed doors provide peace of mind. Finally, the electronic programmable timer offers added convenience and flexibility when cooking.

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good oven and great value for money I purchased this oven to replace a predecessor Hotpoint model in which the thermostat was failing. We wanted an oven that does the standard job required ie heat up and cook, which this oven certainly does without a host of unnecessary additional features which we won't use. It's a very good price compared to others in a similar functional range. JL customer service was excellent, especially as I had to change my original order having mixed up 'built in' and 'built under'. JL fitting and disposal of the old oven was straightforward, efficient and customer friendly. 29 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by does what it is designed to do We chose this oven to replace existing one that was broken. There are not many white cookers on offer. We purchased from John Lewis knowing we would enjoy good service and were not disappointed. Delivery as promised. The cooker has proved to be all we expected. It feels well made and cooks well. Our cakes are evenly cooked wherever they are placed. The controls are simple and easy to use. I know that white is a difficult colour to match but I was surprised to find that the doors are a different colour to the control panel, a point not noticed in the store lighting, but both are different to our old hob. I suppose that the fridge, dishwasher and cupboards are all different again, means that we now have six shades of white instead of a possible five. Having said that we feel this cooker does all that the advertising says and it cooks beautifully at a really great price. We are well pleased. 10 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Good customer service, disappointing product! Bought the oven to replace one that broke. We tried to look in store at a suitable replacement but could only do online. Disappointing to find that although the measurements were a perfect fit, what they failed to say was that there is a six inch gap at the bottom of the use when it is filling an existing hole. Rather misleading however John Lewis have offered excellent service and came to collect the oven, offering a full refund. 07 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent customer service After my old cooker died, I had a gap to fill, literally less than two weeks to Xmas. After frantically trawling the internet I found the perfect replacement. I bought it and it was delivered on time, after a few problems installing it and a couple of phone calls to customer services, everything was running smoothly. Xmas was saved and my daughter, the baker, continued to make wonderful cakes. Not the most expensive oven, but it does what it says on the tin and produces good evenly cooked food. Thank you John Lewis for excellent customer service. 08 January 2014
