Choosing the Best Built-in Oven For You
Your oven is one of the most important parts of your kitchen. A good oven can transform the way you cook, allowing you to turn out culinary delights and prepare tasty and healthy meals for friends and family. A poor quality oven however can have a distinctly negative impact on your cooking prowess leaving you looking more disaster chef than Masterchef. Recipes will be difficult to perfect and lasagnes, cakes, bread and roast dinners could all be off the menu for your nearest and dearest.
So, to make sure your new built-in oven is a winner, take the time to do a little bit of research before you buy. By thinking about the features you want and the quality you need, you can make sure you find the perfect built-in oven for your home.
Single or double?
The first thing you’ll need to decide is whether you want a single or a double oven. If space is an issue, a single oven may be your only option. However, if you have room for extra built-in appliances, the extra capacity of a double oven could revolutionise your culinary life.
A double oven, like the Bosch HBM13B251B or the Neff U12S53N3GB, will give you crucial extra space when preparing large meals. It also makes it easier to cook different dishes at the same time, allowing you to start on that birthday cake while the dinner is still in the oven.
If you like to serve dishes that contain various elements, or if you enjoy eating from pre-warmed plates, a warming drawer is an essential kitchen accessory. Though it takes up a little more space, the versatility that a warming drawer can give you will make it worth the sacrifice.
As ovens become ever more advanced, the cooking technology they contain comes on leaps and bounds. One of the latest innovations is the steam oven. Unlike traditional convection ovens, steam ovens use heated water to cook your food. This is ideal for vegetables, fish and other delicate foods and can help you to make your meals healthier.
Products like the Miele ContourLine Steam Oven come complete with automatic user programmes and fit seamlessly into your kitchen design.
Steam combination ovens
If you like the idea of cooking with steam, but don’t have the space for a separate steam cooker, a combination oven could be the perfect solution. Giving you the ability to switch from steam to traditional convection cooking, combination models like the Miele DGC6300 are some of the most versatile cookers around.
