4 Questions to Ask When You Are Shopping for Built-In Ovens


So you are thinking about getting a new kitchen or just replacing your old oven? If you’re narrowing down potential built in ovens solely on price, you’re doing it wrong! That’s because built-in ovens offer a whole lot more variety than just different prices.


If you want to make the best purchase for your kitchen, you’ll need to ask at least these four questions:

1. How Big Does Mine Need To Be?

Because it’s going to attach right to the wall, built-in ovens can be as big as you want! The good manufacturers will have different options to choose from, so that you can get a size that’s just right. Most ovens come in 30″ or 24″ variations. That way, you’ll be able to cook even the biggest of turkeys!

Nowadays it’s also very trendy to have actually two ovens: it’s called a 
double oven and it’s very handy to cook your meat and your cake at the same time!

2. Do I Feel Like Cleaning It Myself?

If you’re like most people, the answer to this question is a loud and definitive “no!”. Luckily, today’s quality built in ovens come with all of the same conveniences as their stand-alone counterparts — including a self-cleaning option.

3. What Kind Of Finish Do I Want?

One of the biggest perks of built in ovens is that they look a whole lot more streamlined than traditional stand alone oven stoves.  If you want to play up that modern look, opt for stainless steel. The quality manufacturers will offer a shiny stainless steel finish that makes your kitchen look as sleek as possible.

4. How Fast Will It Heat Up?

This is the one question that you’ve got to ask your manufacturer — instead of yourself!  Remember, for every minute that your oven is on, it’s burning energy. That’s why the best built in ovens are designed to heat up quickly.  For instance, Fisher & Paykel ovens  use special technology that allows them to reach 350 degrees in less than 10 minutes!

As long as you can combine good looks with the most modern conveniences, it’s easy to make a brand new built in oven fit perfectly in your kitchen!

Happy shopping!
