    The Best Electric Double Oven 2020

    1.
    Hotpoint Class 2 DD2544CIX

    Hotpoint Class 2 DD2544CIX

    Hotpoint are generally unrivalled when it comes to providing good quality for less. This built under electric double oven reiterates that notion, with its sleek design, double oven compartments and a number of features and automatic functions.

    In many ways, this built-in double oven could go understated as it does everything well and doesn’t need to shout about it – quite literally as this oven remains quiet during all settings. It has a powerful electric fan oven that heats all food evenly boasting convection technology. This means that regardless of what shelf you are using it will heat uniformly.

    It has a second built-in electric oven that can be doubled up as a grill with the simple use of a setting toggle. It has been designed to fit effortlessly with your lifestyle to prepare two meals for the family simultaneously or make a start on the tasty dessert at the same time as you cook your main meal, you can also put that extra golden crunch to your lasagne with the second grill.

    There are a number of handy features on this oven; including a setting that automatically shuts the power off once your food has been cooked. This innovative Hotpoint oven also boasts Catalytic Liners that ensure the oven cleans itself whilst in use. The special liners absorb, dissolve and rid your oven of unwanted grease, making easy cleaning and ultimately saving you the expense of dedicated oven cleaners.

    Bosch Serie 4 MBS533BS0B

    Bosch Serie 4 MBS533BS0B

    This is a great eye-level built-in electric double oven from the Bosch Serie range of ovens. If you love cooking and being creative in the kitchen the main multifunctional oven has plenty of cooking functions to choose from baking for cakes, a function for cooking homemade pizzas or the perfect toppings for fish pies and lasagnas.
    The second oven comes with a grill setting for cooking fish fingers, toast and of course burgers and sausages (just in case the weather lets you down in the middle of a BBQ!)
    We love the 3D Hot Air cooking system that you get with Bosch ovens which provides even temperatures and prevents the transfer of flavours for example batch cooking or if you are cooking a main meal and dessert simultaneously. This is achieved by the super-efficient fan.
    If there is one job we all hate (I’m sure it’s not just me) then it’s cleaning, so one feature I always look for in a built-in oven is self-cleaning. One of the best features that come with the Bosch Serie 4 is a Pyrolytic built-in double oven. This clever technology enables you to heat your oven up to 480°C to reduce grease or food residue. At the end of the cleaning cycle, you are left with dust which you just need to wipe away, making it easy to clean. To use, you just need to select one of the three cleaning cycles (your choice will depend on how dirty your oven is) and let your oven do the rest.

    Hotpoint K002970

    Many customers choose built-in electric double ovens due to the low installation costs and consistent cooking. This Hotpoint protégé delivers on both of the aforementioned. The built-in electric range excels in all areas with its double oven, ceramic hobs and spacious shelves.

    This oven produces innovative Multi-Flow Technology that ensures that food is cooked uniformly. It thoroughly cooks all your dishes regardless of what shelf they have been put onto. The multifunctional oven has easy-to-use controls and even comes fitted with a programmable timer.

    To top it off it has a pizza function that eradicates any worries of an unevenly cooked pizza or one that has been ‘burnt to a crisp’.

    This has everything you could imagine, from a stylish design to a touch-sensitive user control that is simple for users. It has a four-zone ceramic hob and boasts a remarkable 74 litres capacity.

    Beko BRDF21000X

    Beko BRDF21000X

    This Beko built-in electric double oven would be a great addition to any home which needs a lot of cooking space but doesn’t want to be spending over the odds for the privilege.

    The main fan oven circulated heat evenly, no matter which shelf the food is on, so you can cook pizzas just as well as deep dishes and quiches. The second conventional oven contains a grill too, so bacon and burgers can be made at the same time as oven chips or roasted vegetables.

    Thanks to the adjustable shelves, you can place your food wherever you need it. Both ovens also have a grease-proof enamel coating on the interior chamber, which makes grease simple to wipe away when the oven cools.

    It is designed to fit at eye-level cabinets, so bear in mind before buying.

    Zanussi ZOD35802XK

    Zanussi ZOD35802XK

    This oven is the perfect mid-spot between something which is simple and easy to use, and also has all of the little extras and mod-cons you require to make dinnertime much easier. Zanussi have a great reputation and the ZOD35802XK sits at a good price point.

    There is a main electric fan oven, which is great if every shelf is taken up with a tray of food as the hot air still circulates evenly. It also has a second fan oven which is perfect if you need a bit more space or want to give something its own chamber so the temperature doesn’t fluctuate when you check on everything else.

    In this second chamber is also an electric grill, which will rustle up bacon for your fry-up in no time. The Set&Go timer will help when you have to put dinner on for 6.30pm but have a mountain of washing to do, the dog to walk and the garden to water while it is cooking; just let it tick over, and it will alert you and turn off when done. 

    And, if you are like me and loath cleaning the oven, especially after cooking bacon and other fatty foods, then the ZOD35802XK makes easy work with catalytic lining, which burns any fat, grease & spills at 220oC, so you can just wipe away with a damp cloth when the oven is cool enough to do so.

    Belling BI702FP

    Belling BI702FP

    This is an oven which looks a little bit different on the outside, but still has the reliability and features we know and love.

    Equiflow technology spreads the heat evenly throughout each chamber, so you get perfect results and it also prevents the flavours from interchanging. So you can have a roast beef at the bottom and an apple crumble at the top of the chamber, and one won’t come out tasting like the other.

    The smooth enamel interior aids cleaning meaning any splashes and spills can be wiped away with a damp cloth, no wire brushes or scrubbing needed. It benefits from loads of other nice touches too, from soft close doors to a slow cook feature and a bread proving setting.

    AEG DUB331110M

    AEG DUB331110M

    Another built-under double oven, this time from AEG, and as you’d expect it is packed with features which you didn’t know you needed until you had the privilege of using them.

    The main multifunction oven will have your back no matter what you’re having for dinner or pudding, and SurroundCook boosts the even heat throughout the chamber so it guarantee that your meals are reliably cooked too.

    We loved the retractable controls, which are out when in use so they are easy to turn and manoeuvre, yet remain flush to the oven when not in use for a sleek finish and easy clean surface. Talking of cleaning, the catalytic liners are simple to wipe on the inner if there is a spillage as they use high heats to reduce it all down to ash.

    Zanussi ZOF35601XK

    When you’re busy running around after everyone and getting the jobs done, the last thing you want to be doing is juggling all of the dishes for dinner and tomorrows lunch.

    An intelligent Multiplus system allows you to roast the vegetables, bake the chicken and cook the chocolate brownie tray bake all in one chamber, without any risk of transferring flavours or one taking all of the heat.

    What is the Top Oven Used For?

    It’s possible after reading our reviews on the double ovens, you might be wondering if a single oven might be for you. So we thought we would add a little extra to this review on electric double ovens to demonstrate the benefits of having a top oven and to make sure that you have all the information you need.

    Use Your Top Oven for Extra Cooking Capacity

    There are many instances where you will be grateful for having a top oven. I find this particularly useful when cooking a roast dinner and I have my meat and potatoes at the bottom and want to cook a cauliflower cheese or Yorkshire puddings.

    Prepare a Meal That Requires Different Temperatures

    The example above for cooking a roast dinner is another great example here. Yorkshire puddings don’t take long to cook and also need to be cooked at a higher temperature than your meat. So you can keep your meat moist and succulent in the bottom oven and cook your Yorkies in the top oven.

    Baking Cakes and Bread in Your Top Oven

    Part of the process of making bread is to prove it. You can heat your bottom oven to the desired temperature for cooking your bread after proving and use the top oven for proving.

    Also, if you like to bake, you may find you lose track of time and before you know it you have a cake in the oven and its time to start cooking dinner. With a single oven, you are stuck until your cake is ready, but with a double built-in oven, you can continue to cook your main meal.

    A separate Grill from your Main Oven

    One thing you can’t do with a single oven is to use the grill and oven at the same time. On the whole, you may not find this a problem, but there are times such as cooking breakfast were you are grilling your bacon and you want to keep your sausages and other items warm, or maybe you just want to cook some toast. Another example would be when you have cooked a lasagne or moussaka and just want to finish it off under the grill – you will have a delay while you turn the oven off and wait for the grill to heat up.

    What is the Best Double Oven to Buy?

    As experts in built-in ovens, we pride ourselves on how we analyse and score different double built-in ovens. Although we take into account the style and contemporary exterior when we review built-in double ovens we also consider numerous factors to handpick the best electric double ovens to make it into our top 10 list of ovens.

    Considerations When Researching the Best Double Ovens to buy:

    Extra Oven Features

    Ovens come with many features and the more you pay, the more features you will get, however, will you use all those features? Should you really spend more when you won’t be making full use of oven features such as wi-fi or Bluetooth technology to enable you to control your oven from your sofa or your car on the way home from work? First and foremost look for ovens that heat quickly and cook evenly. Digital controls can be more precise than dials, programmable times will allow you to set specific times for auto cooking and for people like me I prefer a self-cleaning (Pyrolytic ovens) that can be programmed to reduce burnt spills and splashes to ash.

    Oven Design and Style

    For many ovens look very similar with many coming in black and stainless steel but brands such as Smeg have a reputation for design and style and offer some beautiful designs from ultra-modern to retro. Take a look at controls, digital controls can be more streamline, however, some dials can be pushed in and out to give a streamline appearance when not in use.

    Ease of Use

    Ovens need to be easy to use. We appreciate that you may find using your new oven slightly different to your existing oven, but ultimately it shouldn’t be a challenge and many ovens are similar by design and easy to operate. If we have found that an oven may be more complicated to use we have stated this within the pros and cons section of each individual review.

    Double Oven Prices

    From our experience, we know that you can basic built-in double electric ovens from around £150 and a good oven for £500 with an average of around £250-£300. Some brands such as Miele, Smeg and AGE have many models within their ranges that reach the upper ends of some budgets but they also have mid-range models too.

    Oven Reliability

    Check the reviews, what have customers who have already purchased the model you are interested said? Defiantly lookout for comments regarding seals, even cooking circulation and comments regarding good fans.

    Cooked Food Results

    Well, the old saying ‘the proof of the pudding is in the tasting’ is very true here. The sole purpose we have ovens is to cook food. Be sure to consider reviews into how well the ovens you shortlist perform. They may look stylish and suit your budget, but if they don’t cook your food evenly or are slow to heat up you are going to be disappointed with your purchase.

    What is the Most Reliable Oven Brand?

    When we conducted our research into the best built-in double ovens we considered many criteria as outlined above. One factor is reliability, and for us to recommend a reliable oven brand we spend many hours researching what consumers who already own these built-in double brands have to say about reliability, i.e. if a brand is prone to faults, it won’t make it to our recommended guide into built-in double ovens.

    The most common complaints that can deem some built-in ovens to be unreliable are broken oven lights, poor door seals and fans that are prone to break. So, for us, and from conducting our expert reviews we feel the most reliable oven brands include: Hotpoint, Zanussi, Hoover, AEG and Bosch.

    Range Cooker Vs Double Oven

    Both oven styles will give you extra cooking capacities, however, ranges are freestanding units which contain many smaller ovens within their unit with the exception of a microwave. They will sit almost anywhere in your kitchen in between cabinets and will have the hob directly on top. You will have a choice of different fuel types for your hob.

    Both provide additional cooking space, but if you have a smaller kitchen you may find a double built in electric oven a more feasible space-saving option. For further information on range cookers, you can read our review on the best electric range cookers.

    Electric Double Oven Buying Guide

    To make your selection process easier when buying a built-in oven, follow our ultimate oven buying guide with the tips and specifications you should pay attention to:

    Size & Capacity

    One of the most imperative aspects of an oven to bear in mind is the size. What you require is dependent on the size of your family and how many people you generally cook for. If you need an oven for two people then you need no more than the standard width size of 30 inches and 2 cubic feet of space in the oven itself. If you are hosting a meal for four people then you will need approximately 4 cubic feet of space and 40 to 50 inches.

    Power & Output

    You need to ensure quality – mere wattage or power output alone will not be sufficient. That is why it is great to make the most of the electric range that has a fan oven sure to uniformly cook all food.

    Cooking Modes & Features

    If you are paying good money then it doesn’t hurt to embrace some of the added extras such as cooking modes and functions. Some of the desirable ovens have a pizza function, timers, baking pre-programmed functions and more.

    Are Double Ovens Any Good?

    Double built-in and built-under ovens provide flexibility and are great if you are limited for space as they stack on top and can be positioned either under a counter unit or at eye level. Having had a built-under oven and now having an eye-level built-in oven my preference lays with eye-level as I find it easier to place food in the oven and also for removing hot dishes.

    A point to note between a built-under double oven and built-in oven is capacity. Built-under double ovens they tend to be smaller due to manufacturing constraints. These ovens are only 12 cm taller than a single oven.

    Double ovens offer great benefits:

    • Low installation costs
    • Less energy usage
    • Easy to clean
    • High quality
    • Uniform cooking
    • Reliability

    How Much Does a Double Oven Cost?

    Prices for double built-in ovens can vary and generally you get what you pay for. When it comes down to cost, a double electric oven with what is seen as a good price for one person may seem expensive for the next, however, in our guide to the best electric double ovens we have selected a range of ovens to find what we believe to be the best value for money available on the market. Regardless of your budget, you will be able to find the best built-in double oven that suits your needs.

    Prices generally start at the £150 mark for something basic in the oven world, but the cost for a good built-in double electric oven will range from around £300.

    Conclusion

    Hopefully from reading our double electric oven review guide, you are now confident in making a purchase or have a better idea of the functions that you would like from your built-in oven to make sure that you purchase the right oven designed to fit your budget and lifestyle.

    If you are still wondering if a single oven might be better for you then you can read our review on single electric ovens or maybe you would like to check out our review to find more about the best double oven electric ranges.
