A wall oven is a great alternative to a standard range oven. These ovens make it easier to place and remove heavy food items. Here’s everything you should know if you find yourself in the market for a wall oven.
Price. The price of a wall oven can vary anywhere from $700 on an entry-level oven to $3,500 or more for a double wall oven with convection heating.
Size. Wall ovens come in a standard width of 24, 27 and 30 inches. On average a wall oven is going to be smaller in capacity compared to a range oven. A double oven helps overcome this limitation at a higher price tag. If you find yourself under a tighter budget needing more space, be sure to look at the oven’s maximum interior space.
Convection. Wall ovens will be predominantly electric. One of the deciding factors is if you want your oven to be standard or convection. A convection oven will have an internal fan to circulate hot air throughout the oven. This will reduce cook times and give a more even heat distribution. Higher-end models will have something called true convection. This also has a fan inside but with an additional heating element.
Features. Bigger viewing windows and brighter interior lighting will drive up pricing. Some ovens can contain a temperature probe to alert when food has been cooked properly. Full extension racks can aid in moving dishes easily in and out of the oven. Wall ovens can also have cooking features such as delayed bake to start at specified times. Sabbath modes override safety mechanisms that normally shut off ovens after a certain time. These kinds of features will be found in ovens that range from $900 to $1,200.
