Description
The oven has a large easy-grip handle. A slide-out cutting board is located under the oven.

Users comments
A slide-out cutting board under the oven is useful. The large handle works well; it is easy to just stick one hand under the handle and pull/tug on the oven door.

Local government

Editors comments
The handle is not produced anymore; you can find ovens with easy-grip handles on the market.
