Scope of delivery
The TZS First Austria - 45L 2000 Watt Mini Oven is delivered in a box, which already contains first information and pictures. The oven is simple and modern, in black and makes a high-quality impression.
Included in delivery:
- Baking tray
- Crumb tray
- Spit handle
- Instruction manual
Before first use
You must clean the oven before using it for the first time. To do this, wash all removable parts either in the dishwasher or by hand with detergent under hot water. Then put the stove back in and let it heat for 15 minutes at the highest level to burn it in.
The oven has baking and grilling functions. You can set different ventilation/heating options on two rotary controls.
- Circulating air
- Rotating spit and circulating air
- Top heat
- Bottom heat
- Top and bottom heat
This oven has comparatively many combinations, so you can make the right setting for every baking or grilling situation. By using both controls, you can combine the respective heating and ventilation settings.
You can also set the temperature from 100 °C to 230 °C and a timer from 0 to 60 minutes.
The temperature and timer controls have intermediate markings that make it a little easier to set them accurately. With the temperature controller, these take place in 10° steps and with the timer controller in 5-minute steps.
In our test, we baked pizza in the ovens and grilled chicken with the spit.
For the pizza, I preheated the ovens to 200 °C for 10 minutes. I baked the pizza on the grill and the result was perfect, just like any normal oven!
The spit also worked well. Here you should make sure that the chicken is not too big. In our test, we had a 1.8 kg chicken. Because the weight distribution was not completely balanced, the spit jerked a little. As soon as the heavy side turned from top to bottom, the spit always turned a little faster. However, a good result came out also here.
Unfortunately, the mounting clamps on the spit were missing in our delivery. They were sent to us afterwards without any problems and are normally included in the scope of delivery.
All removable parts, barbecue grill, etc., can be washed like normal dishes. They are easy to clean by hand, but can also be cleaned in the dishwasher. Only wipe the inside and outside with a damp cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents as this will permanently loosen the coating. Grease residues can be wiped out easily.
The following thermal images show how hot the oven gets from the respective sides after continuous operation of 20 minutes at 230 °C.
The outer walls of the oven become hot during use and should not be touched or anything placed on them. The included handle for the spit allows the safe removal of the spit from the hot oven. For the grill rack and the baking tray, you must use a potholder or similar, as there are no handles included in the accessories for this oven.
Unfortunately, the handle of this oven gets hot, especially the inside of the handle gets very hot. Thus, the handle does not seem to be very good, insulated and processed.
We have evaluated approx. 400 customer reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 85 percent of the buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars).

The following points were noted negatively:
- The spit does not have enough power to grill two chickens.

Is oven lighting available?
Yes, the oven has oven lighting.
Does the oven only run when the timer is set, or can it also be used without a timer?
The oven only heats when the timer is set.
How do I set the oven for a grilled chicken?
A recommended value would be 60 minutes at 180°, but this might vary slightly depending on the size of the chicken.
Is the oven loud when it is in operation?
The oven has a volume of 36.6 dB when in operation.
