If you’re thinking about which oven to purchase, first review the following:

Should I choose gas or electric?

This choice depends mostly on cooking preference. Electric stoves are usually less expensive, available in more varieties and have a larger capacity. However an electric stove top might take longer to heat up than gas stoves and you’ll need to keep in mind the extra energy expenses. Gas models can be more efficient and help food retain moisture, but they are available in fewer options, require a gas connection, and must be vented outside.

Should I consider a convection oven?

Convection heating prepares food quickly by moving air around with a fan to cook food evenly from all sides and fully through to the inside. These ovens are often more expensive and have smaller capacities due to the additional fan. Some ovens will combine standard cooking power with convection heating technology for quicker cooking, while some even feature a built-in microwave.

What type of oven should I consider?

Consider how many people you’ll be cooking for on a daily basis, and the amounts of food you plan to make. If you have a large family, you may want to consider a double-oven configuration for twice the space. You can choose to have one oven equipped with standard cooking power and the other with convection cooking, and try to find ovens with multiple rack positions to accommodate varying sizes of cookware. In general, ovens are available in black, white or stainless steel finishes, so choose whichever is most complementary to your kitchen.

What size should I get?

Wall ovens are usually offered in widths of 24”, 27” and 30”. The height generally depends on the type of oven configuration you choose, and what your kitchen can accommodate. Be sure to carefully measure the opening in your kitchen to be sure your chosen wall oven will fit.

How can I make cleaning as easy as possible?

Consider a self-cleaning oven to save you both time and energy. Ovens with removable items like bottoms, doors and knobs will also help you be sure every item can be easily and thoroughly cleaned. Be sure to find appropriate cleaners according to your oven’s finish to avoid scratching or eroding the finish.

What additional features might I want to consider for my oven?

Today’s ovens offer a variety of extra technological features to enhance the cooking process. Some ovens measure the inside temperature so you know exactly when the oven has been fully and precisely preheated. Some can be programmed to begin cooking even when you’re home through a delayed start. Oversized windows offer a better view of the contents inside, while electronic controls allow you to set precise temperatures. If you have younger children who want to help out in the kitchen, consider adding safety locks so they can’t open hot ovens and risk being burnt.
