    There are so many types of ovens on the market and it is important to know the difference between each before you make a purchase.  We have listed below a few different types of ovens to help you during the selection process to choose what is right for you.

    Gas Ovens

    Just like gas cook tops there are also gas ovens available, which, have been a popular option in the past however, your home requires a connected natural gas line in order to be able to connect gas ovens.  If your homes doesn’t have a natural gas line it’s important to factor in the additional cost into your renovation plans.  Typically these types of ovens maintain a high moisture level, which, make them perfect for cooking a juicy Sunday roast.

    Electric Ovens

    Electric ovens are one of the most common types of oven on the market .  They are in many cases a cheaper to buy than gas ovens.  Electric ovens are known for providing a more even heat distribution, which makes them perfect for cooking cakes and slices.  Electric ovens can be separated into two categories conventional ovens and convection ovens.

    • Conventional Ovens – A Conventional oven heats from the bottom up, which, can create inconsistent pockets of cooler air meaning the temperature can vary at times.
    • Convection Ovens – Convection ovens circulate warm air from the back via a fan and can usually be set to a lower temperature than a conventional oven.

    Steam Ovens

    Steam ovens are renowned for keeping nutrients in food and cut down of fatty oil absorption when cooking.  This water based oven works by pumping water into a boiler through a waterline or cannister using the steam to heat the oven.  These ovens can reduce on cooking times but does not allow for making food golden and crispy like a standard electric or gas oven.  They are generally more expensive than a standard electric oven so it is important to allow for the additional cost in your renovation budget.

    Warming Drawers

    Warming drawers are an item you may find in some kitchens but not all.  Warming drawers are exactly what the name suggests they keep food warm or are great for defrosting food. They are also great for keeping plates warm.  They are generally located either above or below the main oven.  They are perfect if you like to host guests on a regular basis with a sleek design they look great but they do not come cheap starting from around the $800 upward to $2000 price range.

    It is important that you purchase the right oven for you and your kitchen space.  If you would like to learn more or book a free measure and quote appointment click here
