The Complete Guide to Kitchen Ovens

Good to think about when buying an oven for the kitchen.

Bread, buns, cookies, steaks, vegetables, gratin … think what sweet scents are spread in the kitchen when you open the oven door. With a good oven, there are basically no limits to what you can do. Just think first about what type of oven you need before deciding. Here are some good things to keep in mind.

Which oven should you choose?

For many, the design is important so that it matches the kitchen’s other appliances, such as the microwave oven and the refrigerator. Some want a large oven with features such as an extra grill and hot air. Others value cleaning functions, pyrolysis, and an extra cool oven door. Or maybe both. If you have young children, we recommend an oven with a mechanical child lock. Below we explain more about different functions and models so that it will be easier for you to choose.

Most ovens also have a grounded connector mounted from the factory. To get the oven in the right space, it is important that you first look at the dimension sketch so that the oven fits. Most ovens have similar dimensions, but please check one extra time.

Oven program

Feel free to familiarize yourself with the different oven programs by looking through the operating instructions that you find under the respective oven model here on the website.

Energy consumption and energy saving

The energy label indicates how energy efficient the oven is. Today, most people have an energy consumption from A up to A +++ (which is max). The energy label indicates how much energy is needed in a predetermined standard program. Hot air cooking is in most cases lower than conventional over/under heating and can separate about 20% in energy consumption.

Tips on how to save energy:

  • Turn off the heat a little before the set time to utilize the after-heat.
  • Do not turn on the oven too soon so that it is unnecessarily switched on before cooking.
  • Use the hot air function because it has lower energy consumption than over/under heat.

Features/programs

The various programs including cleaning are described in each individual instruction manual. The same applies to the various optional buttons. The options make changes to the programs such as the setting of time, temperature, meat thermometer setting, and automatic program.
