One alternative to traditional range units that people should consider is a wall oven. If you don’t enjoy bending over while cooking, wall ovens are great by allowing you to keep a better eye on the food without having to strain yourself. These ovens are designed to fit any kitchen regardless of the layout or amount of space, but it can be difficult to choose which one is best for you since there are many factors to consider.
Shoppers can likely expect to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars depending on the model, so feel free to reference this guide to give yourself an idea of what you need out of a wall oven.
Gas: Natural gas prices determine the oven’s operating cost. There may be electronic controls, but fewer units may be available compared to electric ovens. So, you may come across a small selection of lower-end models.
Electric: These are usually cheaper and a little bigger in size. They require a 230/240 V connection. Electricity prices determine the operating costs. Electric ovens are the most popular and include a vast selection.
Capacity: Wall ovens are usually 24-, 27-, or 30-inch varieties. They come in both single and double oven models. Some wall ovens may have a small unit dedicated to warming, grilling, and reheating while another may offer convection heating. Multiple rack positions also accommodate larger cookware.
Heating: Most wall ovens use thermal or standard heating technology, but there are also microwave and convection cooking ovens. Convection heating comprises of moving air with a fan to provide even cooking on all sides. There are also steam ovens that combine steaming power with standard thermal cooking. This allows food to heat thoroughly without losing moisture and succulence.
Accurate Preheat: Most wall ovens monitor preheating according to a set time, but some measure the oven’s temperature indicating that the oven is fully preheated and ready to use.
Self-Cleaning: A self-cleaning feature is common for many ovens to make post cooking cleanup slightly easier. Removable oven bottoms for cleaning are also something to consider, which involves taking out the bottom, washing it, and then sliding it right back in place.
Delayed Start: Delayed start features allow you to program the oven to start cooking even when you are away from home.
Safety Lock: Safety lock features prevent the oven from being used unless the oven is turned off. This works great as a child proof feature, preventing accidents and keeping children from accidentally turning on the oven and burning themselves.
