We have been researching and evaluating electric wall double ovens since 2016 to find the best oven in terms of features, convenience and overall design. The Electrolux EI30EW45PS is the best we found with the most attractive overall feature package of any wall oven we researched. It has a large capacity as well as features like convection cooking and specialty features that let you defrost frozen foods and dehydrate food by cooking it at a low temperature for an extended time.
The Electrolux EI30EW45PS has advanced features that save time and simplify cooking. The upper and lower ovens have the same capacity of 4.8 cubic feet and both have a convection option. There is enough space to cook multiple dishes in both ovens at once, and this oven’s IQ-Touch panel displays all the settings so you can easily access its many features.
In addition to its advanced functionality, this oven has all the essentials, including heat self-cleaning cycles, a clock, timer, roasting, broiling and baking options. Unfortunately, it lacks a steam-clean cycle for lighter cleaning jobs. It has a temperature probe inside that lets you quickly check the internal temperature to know if your food is thoroughly cooked. There are 10 baking options, including rapid preheat, a bread-proof setting, and delayed bake so you can schedule the oven to cook at a later time.
This oven has some uncommon settings. You can dehydrate food by cooking it at a low temperature for an extended time. It also has a defrost setting that lets you quickly thaw foods. This Electrolux model comes with a three-year warranty for parts and labor.
At the time of writing, the Frigidaire FGET3065PF is the least expensive electric double wall oven we reviewed. That's impressive considering its excellent design and useful feature set.
Each of its two ovens has 4.6 cubic feet of cooking space and three racks, and the upper oven has a built-in probe so you can check your food's internal temperature. Both the top and bottom ovens have convection cooking capabilities – there is a small fan inside each one that distributes hot air, so food cooks faster and more evenly. In addition, the ovens have a rapid preheat option that can bring them to temperature minutes faster than the normal preheat, a delayed bake setting and a warm setting. The ovens can also self-clean using either steam or heat.
The Maytag MEW9630FZ is an electric double oven with 5 cubic feet of cooking space in each oven. The upper oven has convection heat, while the lower has traditional thermal cooking technology. It also has convenient features such as a rapid preheat setting and a delayed bake option. This oven also comes with a generous 10-year warranty on the parts and labor.
If you regularly cook for a large family, this versatile, large-capacity oven is a good choice. It has a total of six oven racks that you can adjust to fit whatever you’re cooking. The lower oven is best suited for dishes you want to slow cook, while the convection capabilities in the upper oven will cook food quickly and evenly by circulating the hot air with a fan. It has an easy-to-use touch display to control the settings, which is easier to clean than knobs and buttons.
This oven has a self-cleaning cycle that uses extreme heat to burn away baked-on debris. There are six different cleaning levels ranging from three to five hours. Unfortunately, there is no steam-clean feature for fast, chemical-free cleaning. For safety, the door locks automatically to ensure no one is exposed to the extremely high temperatures, and if the oven is left on for an extended time, it shuts off automatically. Other nice features include a rapid preheat option and a cook-and-hold setting that lets you cook for a preset amount of time, then reduces to a warming temperature for an hour. Maytag stands behind this electric wall double oven with a 10-year manufacturer warranty for parts and labor. This is the longest warranty you can find on one of these ovens.
Best for Dehydrating Food
The Viking 3 Series RVDOE330SS has all the features most people would want in an electric wall double oven, including convection cooking and extras like defrost and dehydration functionality.
The 4.3-cubic-foot capacity of both the top and bottom ovens, while not as big as several of the ovens in our lineup, is still a decent size and will cook plenty of food. Both ovens have convection cooking, which means fans circulate the hot air to cook food more quickly and thoroughly. The top oven has a built-in meat probe to give a precise reading of the internal temperature of your dishes.
This oven has the advantage of doubling as a food dehydrator. In dehydration mode you can make fruit leather and beef jerky. This is a great feature, especially for people who are into food storage. This is one of the pricier ovens in our comparison. The extras may justify the price for the right person, but if you’re not going to use the extras, there are more practical options out there.
Why Trust Us?
We have been reviewing electric double wall ovens since 2016 and have spent more than 100 hours researching and evaluating. In addition to extensive online research, we contacted manufacturers and industry insiders to get their input on the best brands and important features. We read blogs, articles and dozens of customer reviews to get a feel for the models people liked the most and common issues.
How We Picked
We wanted to find ovens that would serve the needs of all types of people and families, finding ovens that cooked food efficiently with as many options as busy people need. We selected ovens with the right convenience features, cooking options, warranties and design features. Cooking features were of primary importance, but conveniences, like self-cleaning, are also an important consideration. We took that into account and selected the best wall double ovens we could find and did in-depth research to help you find the best one for you.
Finding the Right Electric Oven for You
Convection vs. Thermal Cooking
Thermal and convection are two main types of cooking technology on wall double ovens. Thermal ovens are traditional with the usual heating elements that raise the air temperature to cook the food. Convection ovens use similar heating elements to thermal, but these ovens also include a small fan that circulates the hot air throughout the interior, allowing the food to cook faster and more evenly. Many double ovens have one thermal and one convection oven.
There are three types of convection modes: bake, broil and roast. The convection bake mode emits heat from the lower heat element in the oven, making it ideal for foods with crusts, such as pizzas and pies. Convection broil emits heat from the upper element, which is great for searing vegetables and meats. On the convection roast setting, heat is emitted from both elements, so you can roast pork or beef.
Find the Right Size for Your Needs
As you look for the right oven for your kitchen, the capacity is one of the most important factors. Keep in mind that even though two ovens may have the same exterior dimensions, each oven's cooking capacity may differ. When looking for the right oven, a good rule of thumb is to find a double oven with a minimum of 1 cubic foot of space per oven for each individual in your family. For example, a family of four or more will need an oven with at least 4 cubic feet of cooking space per oven.
How Much Do Electric Wall Double Ovens Cost?
The electric wall double ovens in our comparison range between about $1,500 and $4,500. There are many options between those two price points, and many fall right in the middle. An online search on sites like Lowes and Home Depot reveals that the best-selling models fall in this range with the majority between roughly $1,500 and $2,500. Most people can find an oven they need in that price range, including ovens with convection cooking, but you may have to pay more for specialty features like dehydration.
The Electrolux EI30EW45PS has the best feature package of any of the electric wall ovens we reviewed with two large-capacity convection ovens, 10 baking options and a dehydration feature.
The Frigidaire FGET3065PF has lots of features and a low price tag. Its rapid preheat and dual convection oven settings are just a few reasons it’s a good buy.
The Maytag MEW9630FZ is a good choice for large families, with time-saving features like rapid preheat and cook-and-hold options. It is a durable oven with a lengthy warranty to back it up.
