Philips HD6975/00 25-Litre – Description

The Philips HD6975/00 25-liter OTG is the newest OTG available in India. It has a modern look and feel, sleek design, and a digital display. At the time of review, the only available option from Philips is this 25-liter OTG.

Unlike other OTGs, Philips differentiates its OTG with a digital display and electronic controls. This OTG also has ten one-touch pre-set menus and a recipe book that is to the point and with clear instructions on modes to choose for each recipe.

Overall, it is an excellent choice for a small family. The modern digital display and electronic controls make this OTG expensive. End of the day, you want your OTG that can not only bake but also grill and roast. Without a motorized rotisserie, you miss out on the fun of grilling and roasting. At this price point, Philips should have included it.
