How to Choose an Oven
An oven is an essential kitchen appliance that many of us cannot live without. We utilise them for cooking our weekly roasts, Christmas dinners, sheet pan meals, cakes, pizza, party favourites, amongst other oven staples.
It’s vital that they perform as intended and don’t let us down, which is why, when it comes to choosing an oven, considerations need to be made. Investing in quality is essential; however, an oven also needs to provide the right functionality and be affordable to your budget. An oven’s design should be the least important consideration.
Types of Ovens
There are two main types of ovens; wall ovens and freestanding ovens. However, there are also gas ovens, electric ovens, steam ovens, combination microwave ovens, multifunction ovens, and double ovens, just to name a few. Each type of oven has something different to offer; some provide more cooking functions and features, while others may be more economical and quicker to heat.
The first step in choosing an oven is to weigh up your options to see which type best suits your cooking needs. If you think yourself as a bit of a Master Chef, then a multifunction oven or double oven may be the best choice. If you rarely use an oven, then a standard electrical wall oven would suffice.
An oven’s quality, as with any appliance, should be high to ensure longevity. You can gauge an oven’s quality by its warranty, power consumption, safety features, brand, and rating. Look for ovens that feature triple glazed doors and a 2-year minimum warranty.
The design of an oven should be the last consideration. In most cases, you won’t have much say. If the oven offers the functionality and features you desire, and is at an affordable price, you should choose the oven, regardless of design. Generally, the only design options available are the finish, which can be stainless steel or black. However, in most cases, stainless steel is the only finish option.
