Best Double Wall Oven Buying Guide 2017

A double wall oven is a great device for a serious cook. Double wall ovens allow you to cook several meals at a time using different temperature and timer settings. Most of such ovens come with extended functionality and have a lot of capacity, allowing you to cook dishes for big families and gatherings. This guide will explain to you what features to look for in a double wall oven and at the end will have a bonus for cooks who find a double oven to be not enough. From the bonus, you will learn about how you can create your own triple wall oven combination.

Double wall functionality

Since a double oven is an appliance for those who cook a lot, most double wall ovens come with a lot of features.

Convection

In a double wall oven, both ovens would usually have convection functionality. This means that the ovens have at least one fan each. Some ovens have two fans per oven. The fans distribute hot air evenly in the oven, which improves the quality of cooking.

Probe sensors

Most ovens also come with probe sensors. A probe sensor has a part that looks like a needle. The needle goes inside of the meat and poultry during the cooking process and monitors the internal temperature of the food. When the food reaches the desired internal temperature, some ovens shut off automatically and some switch to “keep warm” mode. This means that your food will be cooked to perfection every single time.

Delayed timer

A delayed timer allows you to turn the oven on and to start cooking even when you are not home. By using a delayed timer you can have the oven prepare foods for you in your absence and have the food ready when you arrive.

Child lock feature

A child lock locks the ovens and does not let children open oven doors or change any of the mode or timer settings.

Convection microwave sensor cooking

High-end convection ovens, including many in this guide, come with probe sensors. Some ovens are convection microwaves that come with sensor cooking functionality. This means that you can specify what kind of food you want to cook in your convection oven microwave, how you want to cook it and how much food you are going to be cooking. A microwave with a sensor cooking option will then adjust the cooking time and cooking temperature based on the data it gets from the sensors inside of the microwave.

Capacity and power
