If you love to cook, you might find that the oven is on for hours at a time as you try to cook dinner, bake a cake for dessert and so on. This is inconvenient and can cost you a fortune! Save money and time by installing a dual oven in your kitchen. Not sure what that is? We’ve outlined everything you need to know here.

About Dual Ovens
A dual oven can perhaps be more simply defined as a double oven. That is, it has two separate oven cavities that each have their own temperature controls within the one unit. The ovens can both be full size ovens or you will have one full size oven and one half or three quarter size oven. Depending on the type of dual oven, you can use just one oven at a time, both ovens together, or even remove the divider to create a single large cavity. Dual ovens can be freestanding or mounted into your cabinetry as you need.
Advantages of Dual Ovens
The first and most obvious benefit of dual ovens is that you have double the space! That means that you can cook a roast and all the trimmings without any trouble at all, or juggling dishes over the day. As well, you can also set each oven to a different temperature if necessary. This is great for when you need to bake and roast at the same time – roasting is usually done at a hotter temperature while baking benefits from lower temperatures.
Most dual ovens are convection ovens which means that a fan circulates the air evenly. This makes for more evenly cooked foods with more even browning. What does this mean for you? Food that looks and tastes great every time! They also tend to come with easy to use, intuitive controls.
Considerations with Dual Ovens
The main thing that you need to remember with dual ovens is that they are more expensive than a traditional single oven. This makes sense though as you are getting more oven space which is often invaluable! However, if cost is a factor for you, you will need to decide if the advantages of a double oven are worth the extra cost (that is, you wouldn’t get one if you hardly ever cook or bake!). you also need to measure the inside width of the dual oven like you would with any other oven, to make sure that you can fit your large, wide cookware in!
