Selecting the right type of oven can be a challenge, and is something that you don’t want to get wrong, as it’s probably one of the most used elements in the kitchen. From the cooking of a succulent pork, to baking a cake, an oven is meant to last decades. Electric, gas, steam; double, single, freestanding, with so many choices, we strongly suggest you do your research before making a purchase.
Different Types of Ovens
- Single/Wall Ovens
- Freestanding Ovens
- Double Ovens
- Toaster Oven
- Steam Ovens
Even though gas ovens tend to be more expensive, they can be a better option, as they cost less to run. All you need is to connect the oven to a gas pipe. One of the main complaints of having a gas oven is the uneven heat distribution, with many of the ovens having hotspots. If your main goal is to get an oven that will lower the cost of your bill, and you’re not fussed about the potential heat problems, this could be the option for you.
There is more of a range when it comes to electric ovens, which come in a number of different sizes. Heat elements are placed in the walls of the oven, and while they are cheaper to purchase, you run the risk of having large electricity bills. Maintaining an electric oven is easier than a gas one, as they are easier to clean and use.
After deciding on the type of oven you would like, the next step is to identify whether you seek a conventional oven, which has no fan, while convectional ovens have fans and can eliminate the smell. Depending on what you cook, how often you cook and whether the odour of food lingering bothers you, you should take into consideration a number of benefits that a fan can have.
One of the best ways to determine the right oven for you is to set a budget, and take into consideration the running costs of the oven.
