It may have been a while since you have been in the market for an oven and things have probably changed. We have created a practical guide with helpful tips to choose a good oven for you and your home.
The benefit of having a built-in oven is the ability to place it wherever suits you. If you are replacing an existing product, you are in most cases limited to the size and style of oven you want.
On the other hand, if you are starting from scratch or willing to adjust your cabinetry, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. You need to think and assess what the right oven is for your design and what will work best for your cooking style.
Your ideal oven size depends on the type of cooking you do, your cooking frequency, kitchen space and household size. Apart from width and height, ovens are also measured for volume in liter.
You can refer to the capacity guide below to choose the most suitable oven for your needs:
1 - 2 people
A 30 - 40 liter oven suits single households or couples, who eat out regularly, but like the compact convenience of a small capacity oven.
A 40 - 70 liter oven suits most households and can fit a large roast and the trimmings if you opt for one with multiple shelf positions.
A 70+ liter oven is best for large households or those who like to entertain, offering unparalleled capacity.
Size, style and cooking functions are all important things that influence your final oven purchase decision, you will also need to consider whether you would like a gas or electric oven.
