GE PB960SJSS

Easy Double Cooking

One of the biggest benefits provided by a double oven is in its ability to allow you to cook two different dishes at the same time. Of course, this can be trickier than many people realize, but the GE PB960SJSS Electric Double Oven actually makes this about as easy as it can possibly get. This double oven contains a number of features that help make it stand out from many other models in its ease of use, and offers cooking performance that lets you cook virtually any dishes that you desire.

This double oven has an upper compartment that uses traditional heating that while limited in size, gives you a variety of cooking options, especially for both Broiling and Baking. The lower oven, which has a larger compartment, uses convection heating and allows for the thorough cooking of even traditionally difficult dishes, delivering up to a whopping 3600 W of power for broiling. The baking performance of each oven is also quite good, with up to 2650 W. Both ovens offer baking and broiling modes, while the lower oven also offers a convection roasting mode, adding to this oven's flexibility.

One thing to note about this model is that unlike all of the other double door ovens reviewed here, this is a free-standing model, so this will be the only choice for those who require such, although what a good choice it will be!

Review of GE PB960SJSS Electric Double Oven

Powerful in Use

This powerful double freestanding GE PB960SJSS oven with an ideally smooth seamless cooking surface and touch controls combines impressive features and superior performance and allows you to cook a wide variety of hot dishes in a minimal amount of time.

The oven includes an LCD timer that can be used for both ovens, letting you program timed cooking for auto-shutoff whenever it is finished. In fact, you can even use the timer for a delayed baking option, which lets you start baking at a specific time instead of needing to start the process immediately. This can be particularly useful for when you want something to finish at a specific time.

Plenty of other features are included here, including self-cleaning modes for both ovens, various programmable cooking modes, temperature and recipe conversion, and many more. For anyone who wants a double oven that is not only high tech but also offers high performance while remaining easy to use, this model will be a great choice.

Frigidaire FGET3065PB

Beautiful in Appearance and Performance

To some people, the appearance of an oven can be almost as important as its performance. Many people like having a pleasant kitchen interior, which of course is dependent on the appliances that are contained within it. With this oven, you can have an appliance that both looks and works wonderfully. The Frigidaire FGET3065PB built-in double oven with Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel finish does not attract fingerprints or dirt, so it always remains radiant thanks to its polished black exterior.

Despite this, you are not limited in the number of dishes you can bake or broil. Both oven compartments are spacious, offering 4.6 cu. ct. of capacity, and both also offer baking, broiling, and roasting modes, giving you equal capabilities. In short, you won't have to rely on one specific compartment for a specific cooking mode like what is necessary with most other models.

Review of Frigidaire FGET3065PB Electric Double Wall Oven

Accurate Cooking Temperatures

A problem that plagues many an oven is the fact that the internal cooking temperature of a compartment can often drastically differ from the temperature that was set. Fortunately, this oven makes this problem a thing of the past. In the upper oven there is an Effortless™ Temperature Probe, thanks to which you will no longer have to guess what the actual temperature inside the oven is. In addition, you yourself can set what temperature you want to reach, and the oven alert will notify you when this happens, letting you cook your meals at the exact desired temperature, which will inevitably lead to the best results with whatever dish you cook.

This is far from the only feature on offer with this model. This oven offers self-cleaning modes, including a steam clean option that will let you make the interiors of both compartments spotless, as well as timed cooking options, including a delayed start. The controls for the oven are quite simple, featuring the modern touch controls that are common on many new models instead of the traditional dial controls, which makes precision cooking easier, as well as the ability to set a particular cooking mode with just a single touch. At the end of the day, this powerful high end oven from Frigidaire will amaze you with not only its appearance and performance, but also with its ease of use.

GE JK3500SFSS

Even and Thorough Cooking

One of the biggest issues that people tend to have with ovens is their inability to evenly and thoroughly cook its contents. Not that most ovens are necessarily to blame, as this can be hard to accomplish for every food, but it's a problem nonetheless. Thankfully, the GE JK3500SFSS Double Wall Oven was made specifically to do away with this problem, allowing anything and everything to be cooked evenly, without the risk of leaving cold spots. The hidden baking elements promote an even distribution of heat throughout the volume of both ovens, which makes it possible to bake food at the same time on both levels with the same efficiency. So, not only do you get thoroughly cooked food in one oven, but in both.

This double oven from GE sports two oven compartments of equal size, measuring 4.3 cu. ft. in capacity, with an equal power output of up to 2600 W for baking as well. Also equal are the capabilities of both compartments, featuring thermal bake and thermal broil modes for giving you plenty of cooking options. Both compartments feature multiple rack levels that let you set the ideal positioning of your food, and the above mentioned hidden heating elements also help make cleaning of the oven a breeze, which should be welcome news to those who use their ovens quite often.

Frigidaire FFET2726TS

Excellent Results

When people think of the company Frigidaire, they usually think about their excellent and well-known line of refrigeration products, including home refrigerators and freezers. Just as they have cold products perfected, though, they also have ones that produce heat close to this same level, as is evidenced by the Frigidaire FFET2726TS Total Capacity Electric Double Wall Oven. The Frigidaire FFET2726TS is a double oven of optimal power and spaciousness, which allows you to achieve equally excellent results when cooking at all levels. In this case, you can easily adjust the temperature, as well as choose between two heat levels for both oven compartments.

Speaking of the oven compartments, they are both of equal capabilities and size, featuring traditional heating with a capacity of 3.8 cu. ft. each. Although the capacity of each compartment is small when compared to several of the other models reviewed here, they should both be spacious enough for regular use, letting you cook even large portions with ease. These compartments feature thermal bake and broil modes for the usual array of cooking options that are found on most double ovens, so you won't find this oven lacking despite the smaller compartment sizes.

Review of Frigidaire FFET2726TS Total Capacity Electric Double Wall Oven

Optimal Grill Positioning

The size and features of an oven compartment won't mean much if you're unable to optimally position your food within it for maximum cooking potential. Fortunately, this oven excels in this. In the kit there are 2 grills, the position of which can be changed at 10 different levels (5 in each oven). In addition, the grilles have a well-thought-out design so that you can comfortably get them out and put them in place, even while holding large pots. Those who are often changing out dishes to be cooked will find this especially helpful, making the process of removing hot pans much easier than it is in many other ovens.

Many of the usual features are found in this double oven, including self cleaning, timed and delayed cooking options, and easy programming for cooking in both compartments. The controls are of the usual touch interface that is popular on most modern kitchen appliances, letting you set exact cooking temperatures and times instead of having to fiddle with knobs in order to get the exact setting you want. If you have an older oven and need extra cooking capacity, or if you just want the modern conveniences offered by a double oven at an affordable price, then you can't go wrong in choosing this model.

What Is a Double Oven?

Virtually every home has an electric or gas-powered oven, a device that is used to bake various kinds of food. In fact, this has been the case for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Old ovens usually were simple devices that were powered by lighting wood afire within a small, enclosed and insulated space, where baking bread was very common. Nowadays, with electric and gas-powered ovens in almost every home, such types of ovens have largely been relegated to being things of the past. The modern oven has proven to be an extremely handy appliance that allows for cooking almost anything a person could want.

Where traditional ovens fail, though, is in being able to cook multiple things at once. Baking can be an extremely time-consuming process, and baking one type of food needs to be completed before you can start on something else. That is where double ovens come in. These appliances are just like traditional ovens, with the main exception that they contain two enclosed spaces for baking instead of just one. Each baking enclosure will have its own temperature settings, letting users bake two different things at the same time, even if each item requires its own temperature settings.

If you are looking for something that excels at baking bread, you might be best served by purchasing a dedicated bread maker.

What Features to Compare

Double ovens tend to be similar to regular ovens in many ways, especially in their primary purpose. However, those who aren't familiar with the nitty-gritty details of ovens may not have much of an idea of what to look for. Furthermore, double ovens sometimes contain some features or characteristics that most single ovens don't have, further complicating the process of finding out which one is best. Below are the most common characteristics to look for in an electric double oven, which should help you find the best double wall oven for your kitchen.

Installation Type

Probably the first thing to be aware of with any double oven that you buy is the installation type. This basically shows the method and area of installation in the kitchen. Just like with standard single ovens, most double ovens tend to be the "built-under" type, including most of the selections in this review. This allows for easy installation in the vast majority of kitchens. A freestanding oven, on the other hand, is meant to be installed by itself, not within any kind of enclosure. You will want to choose the correct type for your kitchen, so make sure you pay attention to this characteristic with any model you choose.

Power

The power of an oven can go a long way towards showing just how powerful the oven is, in regards to the maximum cooking temperatures that can be maintained. Most double ovens are usually at least 4000 Watts (when combining the power of both ovens), providing plenty of power for cooking more than one dish at the same time. If you plan on using the oven for cooking items with high temperatures, you will be best served with the most powerful oven you can buy. Be aware, though, that each oven compartment will have its own power setting, so pay attention to the power supplied to each separate oven in any model you purchase.

Capacity

The capacity of a double oven shows how much oven space exists in both the top and bottom oven compartments. In most double ovens, the bottom compartment will have a higher capacity than the top one, although this isn't always the case. Regardless, those who will be cooking large amounts of food will want to make sure that the capacity of the oven will be able to meet their needs.

Cooking Modes

Most modern double ovens will have a selection of cooking modes available for each compartment. These cooking modes will give you a choice of the type of cooking that can be done in each compartment, ranging from your standard baking to grilling, slow cooking, and even defrosting. If there are any specific cooking modes that you plan on using, you will want to make sure that your double oven supports them.

Usability

Along with the cooking modes mentioned above, double ovens will typically have some type of usability features that allow for convenient use of the device. Most of these features will include things such as integrated timers for each oven compartment, as well as interior lighting and even various grills and pans that come inside a given oven compartment. As with any of the other characteristics listed here, you will want to make sure that whichever double oven you choose comes with the usability features that you want.

Did you know?

Cook More, Work Less

Double ovens, just by their nature, offer a huge number of benefits for those who often spend lots of time slaving away in the kitchen. However, the benefits they offer may be beyond what most people will initially think. Double ovens don't just help save time spent in the kitchen, they offer many more benefits that help make the entire cooking process much easier than ever before. If you are the proud owner of a new double oven, and are looking for ways to maximize the benefits you get from such an appliance, below are some handy ideas for helping to create some culinary masterpieces with a minimal amount of effort.

Appetizers and Main Course

Do you host dinner parties where you have multi-course meals, including appetizers? If so, this can be done easier than ever before with a double oven. You can heat a light appetizer in the top oven while the main course cooks thoroughly in the bottom one, letting you have the appetizers ready and waiting for your guests while the main course is still cooking. Heat up some potato wedges or cheese sticks quickly while your casserole bakes, giving you the quick and easy appetizers with just the right amount of time before the main course is finished.

Dinner and Dessert

Many people often don't have a proper dessert very often just because it can be a pain to cook both dinner and dessert at the same time. With a double oven, however, this can be quite easy to do. In fact, a double oven allows for some really fancy desserts, especially cooking cakes or cookies while dinner is heating up. That way, you can have a freshly made dessert as soon as you finish eating dinner!

Hamburgers and Fries

Most double ovens include grills inside of them, which lets you cook a greater variety of food. If you're in the mood for some good old fashioned fast food, but don't feel like going out, then make it yourself! With a double oven, you can cook hamburger patties and fries at the same time, without having to share the oven space for both. This, in fact, lets you cook larger portions of both, which is perfect for when you have some friends over to watch a match on the telly.

Gourmet Delights

Having a fancy gourmet meal at home is always nice, but they can be difficult to make, especially when a dish involves multiple ingredients cooked at different temperatures. As you can already guess, a double oven makes it much easier to make such dishes in a minimal amount of time, letting you bake multiple ingredients simultaneously without having to guess about cooking times for things sharing the same oven.

Perfect Taste and Smell

One of the biggest drawbacks with having to use an oven to cook multiple things is that some ingredients tend to leave a smell or taste behind that will get into the other dishes. Cooking fish tends to be one of the biggest culprits, as the smell and even taste of fish can be left behind for whatever else is cooked afterward. With a double oven, however, you no longer have to worry about this. You can cook fish or another similarly offending ingredient in solitude, letting your other dishes taste and smell exactly the way they are supposed to.
