Oven buying guide

8 minute read |

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. 

1. Oven size & capacity

Size


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.

  • 45 cm in height: A compact oven
  • 60 cm in width: A single standard size oven
  • 90 cm in width: A large model

Capacity


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.
  • 3-4 people: 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.
  • 4+ people: A 70+ liter oven is best for large households or those who like to entertain, offering unparalleled capacity.

2. Fuel type


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.

Electric ovens

Gas ovens

-    More common than gas ovens.

-    Generally provide more even heat distribution, especially when equipped with a fan.

-    Require pre-heating, this process has become quicker with modern innovation.

-    Generate drier air which can assist with crisping and browning.

-    Majority of models need to be hardwired by a certified electrician; some ovens will come with a plug and lead suited to a particular amp rating.

-    More expensive initial outlay than electric ovens; however, given energy efficiencies with gas cooking, they will cost less over their lifetime.

-    Cook with greater moisture, making them ideal for roasts.

-    Faster heating than electric models and more precise temperature control.

-    Generally contain fewer parts than an electric oven, so the lifetime maintenance should be easier.

-    Can run an LPG bottle - model dependent

Oven FAQs

  • What is a Steam Oven?
    A steam oven has a function that combines steam with hot air throughout the cooking process. Dependent on the level of steam the oven offers, steam ovens come with a water tank accessible from the front of the oven, that feeds water to the inside of the oven or there is a well at the base of the oven cavity in which you place water.
  • What is fan forced oven?
    Fan forced oven has a heating element and a fan on the oven’s back wall. The electric element heats up and the fan circulates the warm air through all the levels of the oven evenly. The main benefit of a fan forced oven is the even temperature distribution, which allows several dishes to be cooked at once with no need to rotate..
  • How do you clean your oven?
    Depending on your oven model you can clean your oven following the two methods.

    Steam cleaning

    Cleaning is a breeze with steam. A 30-minute light oven cleaning that's chemical-free. Just add water and vinegar, turn on the steam cycle and wait until the grime is softened and loosened. Grab a cloth, some detergent and wipe. Your oven is clean again. Easy.

    Traditional cleaning

    Mix four parts of baking soda with one part of water and mix it together until it forms a thick paste. Then use a cooking spatula (some similar utensil that helps spread the mix) and spread the mix on the dirtiest parts of your oven only and let it sit for about thirty minutes. After that, grab a grout sponge and dip the sponge in straight vinegar and then just scrub vigorously. All the dirt should come out easily.
