You’ve been in the market for a Oven and it’s been a while since things probably changed. We have created a practical guide with helpful tips on how to choose an oven for you and your home.
The advantage of having a built-in oven is the ability to place it where it suits you. If you’re replacing an existing product, you’re mostly limited to the size and style of oven you choose.
On the other hand, if you’re starting from scratch or willing to adjust your cabinetry, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. You need to think and evaluate what is the right stove for your design and what will work best for your cooking style.
Oven size and capacity
Your ideal oven size depends on the type of cooking you do, your cooking frequency, kitchen space and family size. In addition to width and height, ovens are also measured for volume in liters.
45 cm height: a compact oven
60 cm width: A single standard size oven
90 cm width: A large model with side-by-side trays
You can refer to the power guide below to choose the most suitable stove for your needs:
1 – 2 people
A 30-40-litre oven is suitable for single families or couples who regularly eat out, but like the compact convenience of a smaller capacity oven.
3 – 4 people
A 40 – 70 liter oven is suitable for most households and can be suitable for a large roast and trim if you choose one with multiple shelf positions.
A 70+ liter oven offers the best, unmatched capacity for large families or those who love to entertain.
