Is a Double Oven Worth It?

Why Trust Us?

If you are an avid cook, you are never not in the kitchen frying, sautéing, cooking, baking, or steaming something. Making all of your family favorites can be time-consuming and troublesome when you only have a single oven to take care of the brownies, roasts, casseroles, pies, and other side dishes. Well, a double oven may ease your minds and stomachs — as they say, two is better than one, right? With a double oven, you can cook twice as fast since you won’t have to wait to use the oven between each dish and dessert or fear your cookies being overbaked while your chicken is undercooked. Although there appears to be no downside to having twice the oven power, is a double oven worth it?

Well, our Colder’s team is here to answer that question for our fellow Milwaukeeans! We’ll break down everything you need to know about double ovens, from what this appliance is to the pros and cons of owning one. And as a bonus, we’ve even gathered and created a list of our customer’s favorite double ovens!

What Are Double Ovens?

A double oven has two cooking chambers, increasing the amount of food that can be cooked. There are two types of double ovens: a dual oven range and a double wall oven.

Here is how a double wall oven and double oven range compare:

Double Oven Range:

  • Double oven ranges consist of a typical cooktop, a smaller top oven, and a larger oven beneath
  • These appliances easily fit in a standard 30” range space.
  • Both ovens have independent and simultaneous operation capabilities. One baking sheet, a small chicken, or a roast can fit in the top oven’s smaller space. Although it has less room than a standard single oven, the bottom oven can fit a roast or turkey together with many baking sheets.

Double Wall Oven:

  • It consists of two full-size ovens that may be stacked vertically or side by side.
  • Customized wall space is required.
  • With two standard oven sizes in one unit, this oven setup has more space than a double oven range. This enables you to cook various dishes — regardless of size — at various temperatures concurrently.

How Much Does a Double Oven Cost?

A double oven range costs between $1,200 and $3,000, depending on whether you select a wall-mount or standing unit. A professional and high-end double wall oven can cost up to $5,000. However, you can expect even less for a double wall oven at Colder’s, with our models ranging between $1,500–$4,800. And if you choose to buy a double oven range from us instead, whether it’s gas, electric, dual fuel, or pro style, you can expect to spend anywhere from $1,000 to $11,500 for a commercial style range.

Why Should You Buy a Double Oven

While there are several alternatives for double ovens, owners generally agree that they make life easier. Read on to learn why, starting with the most obvious reason.

Saves Time

Baking in two ovens saves time and can double your output twofold, giving you extra leisure time. No more spending all day watching one or two baking pans. Put multiple baking pans in two ovens, set the timer, and you’ll be cleaned up and ready to leave the kitchen by the time the alarm goes off.

No More Flavor Mingling

Are you making cookies for dessert and roasting chicken for dinner? Bake your cookies in a different oven if you don’t want them to have a lemon and pepper flavor. With a single oven, odors can linger and mix with the food that will be cooked after it. To avoid mixing tastes, there is no need to wait for the oven to cool and air out. Food tastes as it should when you utilize two ovens.

Prepare Multi-Course Meals

The bulk of us are all too acquainted with the holiday meal being served cold because the roast required additional time, or the pre-cooked dish did not fully reheat. Planning and maintaining multiple dishes in one oven all day can be challenging.

Use double ovens to host multi-course meals and spend more time with your family and friends. Adjust the temperature in each oven appropriately to ensure that neither the roast at 400 degrees nor the roasted cauliflower set at 450 degrees are overcooked.

Cook Plentiful Portions

Do not let a single oven restrict your proportions while cooking for a large family, hosting events, or preparing meals in advance to freeze for later use. To cook and bake effectively, double or even quadruple your recipe and let your double oven electric range handle the rest.

Get plenty of appetizers that are prepared to be served at a cocktail party. Make a lot of macaroni and cheese so that everyone can get together after the big game to refuel. Purchase in bulk and put lasagna, enchiladas, and baked potatoes in the freezer for quick dinners or side dishes after work.

Best Double Ovens: Wall Oven & Range

A double oven is often more energy-efficient than a conventional single oven and allows you to cook multiple items at various temperatures.

How to Choose the Best Double Oven

How can you choose the best models and brands if a double oven suits your cooking expectations and preferences?

When buying a double oven, keep the following things in mind:

Size: Confirm that you have enough wall space to accommodate a double wall oven. Take into account how much oven space you actually need for your family’s size or preferred entertaining style

Features: Double ovens can provide a range of contemporary and practical features like bigger capacities, smart oven technology, convection cooking, air fry options, multiple cooking settings, and steaming methods.

Electric vs. Gas: Electric double ovens typically cost less to buy outright and have more capacity. Furthermore, because they are more well-liked, more designs are used. Nevertheless, double oven gas ranges have devoted followers who appreciate how much moister food is kept in these appliances. In addition, gas typically performs better than electricity when it comes to preparing a meal on a cooktop. 

Price: Double ovens can cost anywhere from $1,000 to several thousand dollars, depending on their features, setup, brand, and size.
