KitchenAid KODT100ESS electric wall oven: What you need to know  

The standout feature of this wall double oven is its large interior. Both the upper and lower ovens provide 5 cubic feet of cooking space. This makes it easy to cook multiple dishes at one time. It comes with three racks for the upper oven and three for the lower oven. This allows you to customize the space and to cook multiple dishes at the same time.

Both the upper and lower ovens feature thermal cooking technology only; there is no convection mode. Convection ovens, like the one in the Viking RVDOE330SS (opens in new tab), circulate hot air with fans so that food cooks faster and more evenly than it would in a standard thermal oven. 

KitchenAid KODT100ESS electric wall oven: Features  

The controls on this oven are fairly straightforward. Touch controls are located above both ovens. The touch controls include basic settings as well as a number pad, so you can easily enter exact times and temperatures instead of scrolling through numbers to get to your desired setting.

Another feature of this electric wall double oven is its Even-Heat Preheat option. With this setting, the oven reaches the desired temperature throughout the interior, and you don't have to worry about cold walls or cold pockets that may cause your food to cook unevenly. The oven also features a self-cleaning option to remove spilled food and debris. A temperature probe is built into the oven, which helps you know when your food has reached a safe temperature to eat. However, there is no warming feature, defrost or dehydrate options. A one-year parts and labor manufacturer warranty is included on this oven, which is relatively short considering the price of the oven.
