    Cooking a whole chicken

    If you’re looking for something a bit more versatile when it comes to ovens in your kitchen, or if a gas range just doesn’t work for your entertaining needs, then you’re probably ready to invest in a double wall oven.  

    A double wall oven gives you two separate spaces for baking, roasting and broiling. They are stacked vertically or side-by-side, and allow you to use each for a different part of your meal.

    Never again worry about how you’ll have enough oven space for something as simple as Thanksgiving dinner. Not to mention those times when you’re entertaining a crowd. 

    With two ovens that work independently of each other you’ll have plenty of space for main dishes, side dishes and desserts, without the hassle of splitting cooking times or switching temperatures.

    We did a bunch of research and testing and looked at a number of double wall ovens. The one that we like best is the GE JK3500SFSS Double Wall Oven

    We like its modest price point, but it also looks great in any kitchen, has a variety of cooking options, and is easy to use. Even better, this great oven is intuitive to use, and is easy to clean, so you don’t have to worry about boil overs or messes.

    Now, we know what we like, but how did we come to this conclusion, and how do you decide which oven is right for you? Well, we’ve also put together a list of features and a bit of a shopping guide, so that you can find the right product for your kitchen and culinary needs.

    Many of the features of the Empava oven we’ve already found in our first few ovens. This convection double wall oven provides great temperature control for even heating and consistent cooking results. 

    Dual broiler functions allow you to brown without burning, and the one touch control panel is pre-programmed with standard cooking options for things like cookies, pizza and French fries. It also has a self-clean function and covered heating elements, so spills are easy to manage. The Sabbath mode and bread proof options are however, features that many other ovens don’t carry on their standard models.

    Where we think that the Empava oven really shows its value, isn’t in its construction or features, but rather their standard warranty. You’ll find many of the same features on this oven, on others.

    Our pick for the best double wall oven, the GE JK3500SFSS Double Wall Oven, looks great in any kitchen, but also has plenty of great cooking and convenience features that make using this oven, simple. 

    These feature filled ovens will easily handle large family dinners, or parties with a large crowd. They may even inspire you to take your skills up a notch.


    How to Choose the Best Wall Oven

    So perhaps our favorite picks aren’t yours. In that case, you’ll probably want a bit of guidance on how to choose the right wall ovens for your space. We’ve selected five of the features that we think make the most difference in the oven you select.

    Size

    Generally, you can’t just shove a double wall oven into your kitchen. You need to have a space for it prepared, or are replacing an existing double wall oven. Prior to shopping for your double oven, make sure you carefully measure the space where the oven will be installed. This will ensure a proper fit, and avoid frustrations if your oven turns out to be too big or too small.

    Besides the space in your kitchen, you’ll want to consider the internal capacity of the ovens you select. Many double ovens have a roomy 5.1 cubic feet of space, which is more than enough to cook a couple of dishes at a time. However, bigger doesn’t always mean better, so do select ovens that will best fit your normal cooking needs.

    Cooking Power 

    Having plenty of temperature range is important when it comes to selecting an oven. However, there are other cooking options you should look for. 

    Since most ovens will easily get to 500 º F, you’ll want to focus your attention on things like convection fans, broilers, temperature programmability, and dual temperature cooking. With today’s ovens, max temperature isn’t really the guiding feature for cooking power.

    Features

    Today’s ovens have tons of features that they just didn’t have just a few years ago. Some of the features that we really like are programmable cook timers, self-cleaning, easy to use touch screen controls, dish specific one-touch programs and mobile apps. Yep, that’s what we said, many of today’s ovens can be controlled from your smartphone. 

    Some basic features that have become more standard over the last few years are convection fans and drying/dehydrating options. And with the smart phone capability, you also get Wi-Fi connections and ovens that are even Alexa enabled. 

    Design

    Your double oven is going to be a focal point in your kitchen, so it better look good. Traditional, silver, stainless steel is always a good, timeless option for just about any kitchen décor. 

    However, higher end double ovens may come in other stainless steel finishes, including custom colors like blue, black, bronze or even orange and red! 

    These newer hues in stainless steel are far more durable than the enamel and aluminum covered options of the past. Colored stainless steel is scratch resistant, and highly durable, so it will last a long time. 

    Other than color, your design options are limited, but there are a variety of handle styles and control panel styles that you can choose from, and should be considered if you want your new double oven to fit in your kitchen décor.

    Price

    As you’re shopping for your double oven, keep in mind that there are a full range of prices that you’ll be working in. Price doesn’t always equate to quality, but it can. Make sure that you fully understand what you’re getting for your money, and do check reviews of the products you’re considering.
