Are you looking for a double wall oven? Which type of oven? Gas or Electric? Convection or no? Check out this post where I go over the best double wall ovens available.
A double wall oven is an oven (duh) that goes in your wall. What makes a double oven special is that instead of just having one oven – you have two.
If you’re in a hurry (or just curious!) –
✅ This double wall oven is the most popular.
Simple, right? Not so simple in practice though. There are tons of options to consider when choosing a double wall oven. Do you want an electric double oven, or do you want a gas double wall oven? Should your new oven have convection? What is convection even?
See what I mean – not so simple.
Which is better, a gas or an electric double wall oven?
I personally don’t have a preference as long as the oven gets hot, and stays at a consistent temperature. If you do not have gas available in your house, then you would want to choose an electric double oven. A gas line won’t magically appear overnight just because you buy a gas oven. Gas ovens tend to heat up faster but can have more variations in temperature. Electric ovens generally cost more, but hold a consistent temperature better.
Gas double wall ovens are also significantly harder to find. So much harder to find that I am not including them in this review here. Sorry folks! There isn’t enough choice to justify calling one ‘best’. Also, the lack of gas double wall ovens means that there will be fewer people who can work on them, and fewer parts for them.
Your best bet would be to go with an electric double wall oven.
Should your double oven have convection? What is convection even?
Convection is movement caused by differences in hot and cold areas. In ovens, some movement of air around the oven due to hot and cold spots happen naturally. A convection oven takes this movement and intensifies it. A convection oven has a fan in it that assists with moving the air around. This means that your oven has more even heat – the hot and cold spots are reduced by the movement of the air.
