Buying an oven?
Looking for a new oven? You've got options--freestanding, slide-in, drop-in or wall-mount; gas, electric or dual-fuel. Many come with cool specialty features. The type you currently have might dictate the type of replacement you need. However, you may be able to choose the type and features you really want if you're remodeling or building a new home.
According to the viewpoints.com oven-buying guide, many builders are installing wall ovens in high-end and gourmet kitchens. If you're willing to pay $1,750 for a single electric wall oven, the ConsumerSearch website recommends Bosch as the best all around choice at 4.7 cubic feet with convection. Although most prices for this type hover around $1,000, Maytag offers a 3.8-cubic-foot, single, electric wall oven for $850 without convection. For the double electric model, sized at 3.5 cubic feet for each unit, look at Frigidaire for around $1,300. Frigidaire also offers the top single, gas, wall model for $650, although it is relatively compact at 3.2 cubic feet. Research your options online to make an informed choice.
