Hi all

i want to ask if someone of you have Experiences with the Evenheat Knife Ovens or the SUGAR CREEK ECONOMY HEAT TREAT OVENS from Koval Knives.

Im comming from Germany and here you can only find Ovens what are al lot more expensive, i think about to buy such an Oven in USA but Iam not sure if such cheap Ovens work well. Can you give me some Tips?

I use the Evenheat with the rampmaster control, and am very happy with it.

I use the Evenheat also. I had about 6 or 7 years service with no problems.

A few months ago it stopped working on a Friday afternoon. I called Koval and had them give me the phone number for the Evenheat manufacturer. The folks at Evenheat connected me to a technician who helped me diagnose what part had gone out.

The part that had gone bad was a relay in the control box. The technician explained to me how to remove and replace the relay with the least amount of trouble, and said he would overnight me the relay. Sure enough, at 9am on Saturday morning, the relay arrived. Using the steps described to me by the technician, I had the new relay in place and was heat-treating in about 15 minutes.

I was very happy. :D

I also use an Evenheat Oven (Rampmaster II) and have had good service out of it. I recommend the Rampmaster controls. Worth the extra money.

Hi all,

thank you for the information, that sounds really good.

I speak with the people of Koval to find out, how expensive it is to ship the Oven to Germany, than I will see if I make an order.

thank you Peter

Digital controlled Even Heat is tops.
Mine has been cooking for over a decade without a single problem.
Two thumbs up.

I juist did 6 more blades in my new Sugar Creek oven. It works fine after you get the temp scale adjusted. Great tool for the money.
