This Viking unit is more expensive than the other double wall ovens we reviewed, but it is a high-quality oven with some unusual features. Some of its standout settings include a defrost and dehydrate setting. The dehydrate option is not common in wall ovens, and it allows you to make your own fruit leather, beef jerky and more without having to purchase a separate appliance. This can make it a good choice for hunters or those interested in food storage.
This Viking oven also provides a delayed bake option, which allows you to program the oven to turn on at some future time. A meat probe is built into the upper oven to give you a precise reading of the internal temperature of your dishes. However, there is no setting to keep your food warm without overcooking it, nor is there a rapid preheat option to heat the oven at a faster rate than the standard preheat setting. If these are important features for you, the Frigidaire FGET3065PF is a more affordable oven with convection cooking, rapid preheat, warming features and a larger capacity.
