A built-in oven is an oven located within a wall. Built-in double ovens are set in a wall and generally feature a larger over under a smaller one. This oven style is popular in larger kitchens where a stovetop or range is on an island. A double oven allows you to bake two items simultaneously at different temperatures.
Double ovens may come with special features such as fans and convection cooking as well as upper and lower heating elements. The best built-in double ovens come with independent timers, are easy to clean and are able to meet your baking needs. If you are building a new kitchen, use a built-in double oven you can place at eye level. To ensure the safety of those in the home, the outside of the ovens should remain cool to the touch while food bakes. To prevent confusion, consider purchasing a built-in double oven that comes with independent screens so you do not accidentally set the wrong temperature or turn on the incorrect oven. In addition, the best built-in double ovens have removable glass panels, which make them easier to clean.
A built-in wall oven can cost more than purchasing a range with a built-under oven. Built-in and double ovens may be smaller than single ovens. If you need to replace a built-in double oven in a kitchen, it may be difficult to find one that fits the space. While built-in ovens have standard widths, the difficulty is finding one the correct height. Most built-in double ovens have drop-down doors, which can be difficult for those with a bad back, short stature or short arms.
While gas built-in double ovens are available, they may be more difficult to find. Such gas ovens are generally larger than electric built-in double ovens and have many of the same features, but should be installed by an individual experienced in hooking up gas appliances. Gas ovens have the advantage of heating up faster than electric ovens. Moreover, if there is a power outage, you still may be able to use double gas oven to cook. Electric ovens, however, give you the ability to regulate the baking temperature better
You can purchase a built-in double oven at home appliance retailers, home improvement stores and department stores. Many of the same establishments have websites that sell the same products and offer several delivery options. You may find that a retailer may offer a promotional discount on appliances sold online that you cannot take advantage of in the physical store.
