How is a wall oven different from a traditional oven?
The traditional combination of oven and range are built together as one appliance placed in-line with your counter. Wall ovens, however, save space by being stored in the wall instead. A separate countertop range completes your kitchen. Wall ovens are generally placed at eye level, making it easy to see inside and get items in and out of. Combination wall ovens come with a microwave, and by installing your microwave and stove in the wall, you can free up additional room in your kitchen.

What are the benefits of a double wall oven?

By eliminating the need to shuffle dishes between racks, double wall ovens save you time and ensure that everything is evenly done. A single wall oven still offers two to three racks to bake on and could be enough if you generally do small amounts of baking.
How does the type of wall oven affect baking?
- Gas wall ovens — By heating with gas, wall ovens heat up fast and are energy efficient. The temperature and humidity inside can fluctuate though.
