Ovens that combine convection with microwave technology can significantly reduce cooking time and save energy. For spacious kitchens with a corresponding budget are a good option to buy wall ovens - it's a great alternative to standard plates such as "2 in 1". They are mounted high off the floor, so they are easy to use - you do not have to bend over to get something out from the oven, or pick in it. But, for this convenience you will have to pay - wall ovens cost from $ 400-500 (not counting the cost of installation).
Questions to consider when choosing a wall oven: What models are typical for similar homes in your neighborhood? What is your budget? Do you have enough space to install a wall oven? Where will be the other devices in relation to the oven? What features are desirable for you?
Resolution. It is important to observe the exact dimensions if you are replacing an older model to the new. Wall ovens are of width of 60, 68 and 76 cm, but may differ from these default values by 2-5 cm, so it is advisable to stick to the same brand.
Single and double. Standard wall oven volume is less than a conventional oven - 100 liters compared to 140 liters, and the installation of an additional oven can make up for this. If your space and your budget don’t allow you to buy a double oven, look for models with a maximum internal volume. Manufacturers are constantly finding new ways to increase the useful volume of the built oven.
Hand or self-cleaning. The next important decision is the kind of cleaning (hand or self cleaning). Ask yourself if you are ready to pay for the opportunity to save time, which will be spent on oven hand cleaning - it should be several times a year.
Convection. Convection uses an internal fan to circulate hot air, providing uniform heating. It is believed that this improves the heat distribution in the oven, and reduces cooking time. Luxury models are equipped with an additional heating element, which is located around the fan. It is often called the "true convection".
Additional functions. Some additional features greatly facilitate cooking. You need to decide what features are important to you. The more expensive wall ovens are the bigger its door for cooking observing and brighter interior lighting. In addition, it is equipped with temperature sensors that notify the end of the cooking process. The expensive models enameled lattice withstand thermal stress better than chrome - chrome grilles are spoiled by the high temperatures used in self-cleaning, and it have to clean up before the self-cleaning. Expansion racks facilitate the cooking too.
Contemporary wall ovens are equipped with electronic displays. But this does not mean that all models are the same. You can set the time when the plate starts cooking, as well as to maintain the temperature level - such functions will appeal to people who want to come home after a long day at work and ready to get dinner out of the oven. Another function provides a smooth heat for rising dough. In these ovens are different modes of quenching and roasting. People can purchase the oven with the regime of automatic shut-off, which turns off the oven at the set time also.
