Caple, C2901, Built In Single Oven.

Complete with two sets of telescopic fully extendable runners, the shelves glide out effortlessly and safely making it easier to check food during cooking. We love the fact this oven has a rotisserie function too allowing you to cook a succulent chicken or roast with ease. Meat cooked with this function stays beautifully moist as the meat bastes in it’s own juices as it turns.
