Oven smells when used for the first time – what to do?
Does your oven stink when used for the first time? Don’t worry: a certain “new oven smell” is perfectly normal. If you want to quickly get rid of the strange smell coming from a new appliance, we at Bosch Home Appliances recommend that you start by wiping the appliance with a damp cloth. It also helps to heat the oven on top/bottom heat for 30 minutes at 250°C. This should be enough to get rid of any unpleasant smell coming from the new oven.
If your new oven smells of plastic, please double-check whether you have removed all the packaging in the oven’s interior prior to using it for the first time. This may be the reason why a burnt smell is coming from your new oven.
