Gas Single Built In Oven

Built-in Gas Wall Ovens Bring the Heat

Are you mulling over the decision between a gas or an electric wall oven? Sure, electric is more popular, but gas isn’t down for the count just yet.

First and foremost, if you already have a gas hookup in your kitchen, then a gas wall oven is a no brainer; just decide on a size. Make sure to measure your space (either under the counter or in a cabinet space or wall) once, twice, and one more time to see if you need a 24-, 30-, or 36-inch built-in wall oven.

However, if you’re debating whether to upgrade to electric during your kitchen remodel, here’s what you should know about the advantages of a gas wall oven.

How Gas Wall Ovens Work

Built-in gas ovens work with tube burners or glow-bar oven igniters that spark and ignite the gas when the heat rises to a certain temperature. This means that gas wall ovens heat up and cool down faster, resulting in higher efficiency. Standard models’ broil burners also use tube-style burners; however, high-end models use infrared burners over a metal or ceramic mesh to create an intense heat throughout the oven for delicious results.

Besides heating up and cooling down faster, gas wall ovens also have the benefits of locking in moisture as your food cooks. The flowing hot air and igniting gas create a moist environment that’s ideal for baking, so every dish turns out mouth-wateringly succulent. Just be sure to rotate your food as you cook to ensure all-over browning and crisping!

Snazzy Features & Functions to Look For

Whether you pick a single built-in wall oven or a double wall oven, here are a few key features to keep in mind:

  • Convection cooking should be number one on your list; convection uses an internal fan to circulate hot air, which improves the heat distribution for more even cooking and shorter cooking time. Higher-end models improve on the standard with “True Convection,” which introduces a third heating element that boosts the benefits of regular convection cooking.
  • Self-clean mode is great for maintaining your wall oven. It burns the mess away and keeps arduous scrubbing down to a minimum—just wipe out the ash with a soft cloth!
  • Electronic controls, a child lock, and a wide window give you full access and control over your oven and help to prevent accidents.
  • Adjustable racks, delayed bake or start, warming drawers, proof mode, and broil options let you master your oven recipes with the appropriate space and temperature for every dish.
  • Don’t forget to look for convenient French doors or side-swing and removable doors for easier access to your oven.
