Wall Ovens FAQ

Wall ovens are available in several configurations. They may be single or double (over-under) units or a combination unit featuring a traditional oven and a microwave. Steam ovens heat with steam instead of hot air, ideal for reheating and moist cooking. And for the ultimate in cooking, a speed oven: a combination of convection oven and microwave that, as the name says, can dramatically shorten cooking times.

In years past, wall ovens were vented to the outside, but not anymore. Most modern wall ovens are fully-contained units that do not need a vent to the outdoors, making them much simpler to install.

Wall ovens are made to fit in with kitchen cabinets, so the process of installing a wall oven is usually straightforward. Like those from Coast Appliances, a professional installer will create a "box" within the cabinet to hold the oven and add power (and gas if needed) taps. The oven slides into the box and is connected to power, trim is added on the outside, and it's ready to use!

A single wall oven is similar to what you might find in an all-in-one range unit: one door, one set of controls. A double wall oven features two separate oven units stacked on top of each other, giving you two cooking spaces at different temperatures.

Modern wall ovens are reliable appliances. When selecting one, it's best to first focus on what you need from your wall oven, then choose from a reliable manufacturer. At Coast Appliances, we have many excellent wall ovens from Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Wolf, Bosch, Fisher Paykel, JennAir and Dacor, among others.
