Buying an Oven? Here is the Ultimate Oven Buying Guide

When it comes to buying an oven, you want to make sure you choose one that is going to get you the culinary results that you want, every time.

In order to make your search for a new oven easy, we’ve put together a comprehensive and useful buying guide with helpful information, so that you can make sure you buy the right oven for you, with the right features, for all your cooking needs.

First let's start with the type of oven.

Oh! One quick safety tip! We always recommend when buying any type of oven, that you have it installed by a certified professional.

What type of ovens can I choose from?

When it comes to ovens there are two style types that most fall under.

 
  • Freestanding oven
    Freestanding oven

    First there is the freestanding oven, also known as a cooker. This type of oven has a hob on top and can stand on its own without support, or without being built into a structure. An oven with a hob on top is also known as a range.

     
  • Built-in oven
    Built-in oven

    The second type is a built-in oven, or also known as a wall oven. This is the type of oven you get installed into your counter space, kitchen island, or wall. The built-in oven blends into your kitchen design and can be installed under your counter or at a height that is convenient for you.

     

Freestanding or built-in?

Whether you are moving into a new place or remodelling your current kitchen, you are probably wondering which oven style, freestanding or built-in, is the best style for you. Here are some pros and cons.

 

Freestanding oven
A freestanding oven, also known as a cooker, can stand on its own legs and doesn’t need any additional support. Also, as long as you measure the size of the space you are going to place it in, it will fit nicely in your kitchen, just make sure you place it near a power source. In addition, its top is a hob, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing a separate hob.

 

Built-in oven
If you are trying to decide between the latest in contemporary design, culinary function, and trendsetting looks, then a built-in oven can give you all of the above. This style of oven harmonises with your kitchen by fitting under your counter space, or it can fit into the wall of your kitchen at eye level. You will need to purchase a separate hob though, since unlike a freestanding oven it does not have a hob on top. The plus side is that with this choice you have the ability to play with the configuration of your kitchen, by placing the hob in one spot and the built-in oven in a different spot, offering flexibility to your kitchen design choices. Another great benefit of built-in ovens is that you can install them at different height levels, so you can have the ovens at the most convenient height for you. Also, you can save space by getting a compact oven with a separate hob.

 

Single vs. double oven cookers

Now that you have decided whether to get a freestanding oven or built-in oven, the next options to choose from are whether you need a single oven or a double oven.

Single ovens are also a great choice for your home if you don't have too much space available. For people who plan on doing a lot of cooking, then a double oven tends to be the popular choice. Double ovens give you more options, as having two ovens allows you to cook a roast in one oven and use the other oven for baking a pie at the same time. Having a lot of guest over for a feast often means that timing is important when preparing meals, this is where a double oven can help give you the cooking flexibility you need.

Fuel types

Now that you have chosen the aesthetic and build function of your oven, it's time to choose what fuel type you want it to run on. Ovens come built to use the following fuel: Electric, gas, or dual fuel.

 

Electric ovens tend to have the latest features and be more technologically advanced than gas ovens, and many users find them more convenient. Also, before you buy a gas oven, you need to make sure that your kitchen is equipped to allow for the installation of a gas oven. If you don’t have the proper gas piping necessary for a gas oven, then an Electric oven is the way to go.

 

 TYPE OF OVENS 

Now that you have chosen how you want your oven to be powered, let’s take a look at the most common types of ovens.

 

Fan-operated (Fan assisted)
Fan ovens are also known as convection ovens, this category of oven uses a fan to circulate air throughout the oven. This function is great for dishes that require delicate cooking.

Conventional (static)
A static oven is your classic conventional oven that uses heating elements usually on the top and the bottom to radiate heat in the oven and cook food.


Multifunction

Another type of fan oven is a multifunction oven. Like its name sake suggest, it offers several different cooking settings, so you are able to try different cooking methods such as baking, roasting, and grilling. The combination of a heating element around the fan helps distribute hot air throughout the entire cooking chamber. So, unlike a conventional oven that can only evenly cook the food on one oven rack position, a multifunction oven can evenly cook food at various oven rack positions.


Gas ovens

Now let us take a closer look at gas ovens. When it comes to ovens that use gas, there are two types to choose from, LPG or natural gas.


• What is an LPG oven?

Note: Since these ovens use gas you need to follow the requirements designated by your country on how to install them.


• Conventional gas ovens

Conventional gas ovens use natural gas. Admirers of gas ovens love them because gas ovens give you more heat control than electric ovens. Gas ovens tend to have a shorter preheat time. The heat generated from gas ovens also tends to have more moister, this is great when cooking roast and other dishes that you are concerned about coming out dry. Note: Since these ovens use gas you need to get them installed by a certified professional.


• Dual fuel

Can’t decide between an electric oven or a gas oven? Well with a dual fuel range you can get the best of both worlds. A dual fuel range has a gas hob, with an electric oven. The gas hob provides precise heat control. While the electric oven helps you to cook food evenly and is great for baking.

 

Note: AEG offers a broad range of electric and dual fuel cookers but not with conventional gas ovens.

Features to consider when buying an oven

Steam cooking is great for cooking healthy meals. Steam cooking also locks in flavour and keeps your dishes succulent. Many modern ovens offer a feature which allows you to easily and precisely add steam to your cooking.

Oven-cooked food
Hand cleaning an oven
Oven cleaning

Looking for easier ways to clean your oven? With these features you can get the thorough clean you want, without the use of harsh chemicals.

 

Self-cleaning pyrolytic
Pyrolytic ovens will heat up to 500°C, reducing dirt to a fine ash that you can simply wipe away with a cloth.

Catalytic
Catalytic liners make cleaning easier by absorbing grease spills. And by heating the oven to 200°C or higher, the grease is then oxidised leaving the surface clean. Something good to keep in mind is that catalytic oven liners, come in two options: Replaceable and non-replaceable. The reason this is important is because catalytic liners lose their cleaning effectiveness over time. So, for an oven that has replaceable catalytic liners, all you need to do is to replace the liners. But for an oven that has catalytic liners that are not replaceable, once the catalytic liners lose their effectiveness, you will have to buy an entirely new oven.

Aqua clean
Keep your oven naturally clean with steam, created by humidity inside the oven.

Steam cleaning
Steam cleaning is a built-in cleaning program in steam ovens that remind you when it's time to clean. Select from a variety of options and the oven does the work.

Temperature probe
This is the easy way to monitor the core temperature of your food. A temperature probe can also automatically turn the oven off when cooking is complete in regard to your preferred level of doneness, whether you want your steak medium rare or well done. It also works for other types of food, helping you remove the guesswork of when a dish is done, whether you’re roasting a chicken or baking a pie.

Grill
Grilling is the easy way to brown, toast, or crisp your dishes. A great convenience to have is an oven with a separate grill. It gives you more space to cook larger meals.

Fast preheat
Save time with the fast preheat feature. It gets the oven to your desired heat quick so you can start cooking fast.

Plate warming
Have a large family? Have a lot of guest about to come over for a party? Well thanks to the plate warming function you can easily warm up a stack of plates. The plate warming setting uses the fan and the heating element around the fan to warm up your plates. So, your food stays warm for longer after plating it.

Soft-close doors
We all tend to multitask when we are in the kitchen and it’s easy to forget to quietly close the oven door, which can result in a loud noise from the door slamming shut. But thanks to soft closing door technology, the oven door always shuts softly and silently.

Rotisserie function
Make sure your meats come out juicy and succulent with the rotisserie function. It continuously spins meat or vegetables so that you can easily baste them.

Defrost setting
The defrost setting is an easier and faster way to defrost foods such as fruits and vegetables. It has a timer so you can choose how long to defrost an item. The time it takes to defrost an item will depend on its size.

Slow cook
Slow cooking is a healthy and tasty cooking option. It allows you to retain more of the nutrients of your food. It makes meat tender and softens root vegetables.

Pizza function
Whether you want it with just cheese and tomato sauce, or you want to get adventurous and add pineapples. The pizza function provides a great combination of heat so your pizza can get gentle browning, and a crispy bottom.

Dough proving
Many steam ovens have a helpful bread baking function that applies just the right amount of steam to make sure that the bread's surface is kept supple, so that the dough can rise for longer, helping you get the delicious results you desire.

Capacity
If you have a big household or frequently entertain, then getting an oven with a capacity that can handle cooking large meals is a good idea. Oven capacity is measured in litres:

70+ litres – Ideal for a bigger household of four or more

40 – 70 litres – Excellent for a house of three to four

35 – 40 litres – Just right for one or two people

We are committed to helping you not only create the most delicious meals, but also ensure that you are able to cook safely.
Such as with our child lock feature, where you can set a code so a user cannot activate the oven until the code is entered correctly.

Our oven doors also are safe to touch even when the oven is running. And our pyrolytic safety feature, which locks the oven door after a certain temperature is reached during pyrolytic cleaning.

 

Frequently asked questions

Are there different oven sizes?

Oven sizes and installation: Both 45 cm and 60 cm ovens come with similar features. A 45 cm oven is perfect for a small apartment. Some 45 cm ovens also come with a microwave, while 60 cm ovens do not.

Want a pro tip? If you got room, consider buying both a 60 cm and a 45 cm oven, together they allow you to prepare multiple dishes at the same time. So, you can bake a pie in the small oven, while cooking a big roast in the other.

Installation options include a built-under oven. You can also go with an in-column installation, which provides you with more comfort by having the oven at eye level. As always, we recommend getting your oven installed by a certified professional. 

 
Where does my oven need to be positioned?

When installing ovens, the first thing you need to consider is safety. As always, we recommend getting your oven installed by a certified professional.

Do electric ovens have a plug?

Some do and some do not. Whether an oven has an electric plug or not depends on the country that you are in. As always, we recommend getting your oven installed by a certified professional.

Can I fit an induction hob over an oven?

An induction hob may be able to be installed above the oven in worktops as thin as 28 millimetres, but this depends on the brand. 

What do energy efficiency ratings mean?

An energy label is given to new cooking appliances. This energy label shows the appliance's energy efficiency rating, which ranges from A+++ which is the most energy efficient, to G which is the least energy efficient. Check the European Commission’s energy efficiency guidelines for the most current information.

Which is best, single or dual fuel?

It is up to your cooking needs and preferences. With a full electric range, meaning electric hob and an electric oven, you get the possibility of more advanced features such as steam, and induction hobs.

Full gas, meaning gas hobs and gas ovens, allow you to cook without using electricity. Again, make sure if you buy a gas oven you have a certified professional technician install it.

How do I find out about the amp rating?

This will be given in the product specification documentation of the appliance.

What is the Hot Zone?

The space directly above your cooker or hob is known as the “hot zone”. Named so because this area will be exposed to lots of heat from the hob. As a safety precaution, no gas or electric hob can be installed if there are furnishings within the hot zone which are not heat resistant, this includes but is not limited to: Power outlets, drawers, cabinets, and switches.

What is the difference between a conventional and convection oven?

A conventional oven only uses top and bottom heating elements. This results in the food closest to the heat element heating up the fastest. While a convection oven has a heat element along with a fan to circulate the air, and makes sure that the air in the oven is distributed equally throughout the cooking chamber so that food cooks evenly.

What is a multifunctional oven?

It is a type of convection oven that has a heating element ring around the fan. And also has several different cooking functions, such as grilling, baking, and roasting.

What is a steam oven?

A steam oven adds steam to assist in cooking.

The first type of steam oven is known as Steamer or a Full Steam oven. These types of steam ovens go all in on the steam aspect. The maximum temperature they reach is 100°C, and they give your food 100% humidity. But this also means that these ovens don’t offer standard convection oven functions.

Then there are other types of ovens that are not full steam ovens, but allow you to cook with the benefits of steam.

Then there are ovens that offer you the means to have full convection capabilities and full steam oven capabilities. These ovens are knowns as Combi Ovens, or Combination Ovens. See below for a description of Combi Ovens.

Find out more about steam cooking here

What is a combi oven?

A combi oven is a versatile appliance with many functions that allows you to get the benefits of a convection (fan-assisted oven) oven, and a steam oven, all in one. You can use the convection function by itself. The steam function by itself. Or you can combine both functions and get the best of both worlds when you cook a meal, hence the name combi oven. Some combi ovens also have a microwave function.
