All ovens are integrated so if you are looking for a freestanding unit you need to visit our cooker or range cooker pages where we have freestanding options. You should always check the exact measurements of any appliances to make sure it will fit into your kitchen

2. Do I need a built in or built under oven?

Single ovens can be installed in either built in or built under position. If you would like a double oven, you need to decide where to position it in your kitchen before you choose. Double ovens are designed to be installed in a column at head height, or under your worktop, but not all sizes with suit both positions.

3. Do ovens come in different sizes?

The standard width size of most ovens is 60cm, heights of ovens can vary depending on the number of ovens. It is always best make sure if you are replacing an existing appliance that you measure the space which the appliance will sit in your kitchen.

4. What types of oven are there?

Ovens come in a variety of types depending on the method of heating they utilise and some ovens are multifunction ovens allowing for a variety of cooking methods to suit any dish.

Conventional ovens use heating elements in the top and base of the oven.

Fan assisted ovens use a fan to circulate the heat from heating elements in the top and base of the oven.

Fan ovens sometimes called true fan ovens or full fan ovens have a heating element in front of the fan which reduces the time required to heat the oven ready for cooking.

Steam ovens use steam to cook foods helping to keep more nutrients in and eliminating the need for oil.

4. What oven capacity do you need?

If you are cooking for one or two then you will not need a large oven capacity, however if you have a family or you like to entertain you would need a larger oven capacity. We have ovens that range from under 30L to above 80L.

5. What features should you look out for?

Self-cleaning ovens: Some ovens feature catalytic liners that absorb grease and fat splashes, and pyrolytic ovens have a special cleaning cycle that burns cooking deposits and leave only an ash residue for you to wipe away.

Timers: Make life easy with a programmable timer. Set cooking start and finish times, and minute minders alert you when your food is ready.

Grill: The added feature of a grill comes in handy when you want to add that golden crisp finish to your dishes or you simply want to make cheese on toast.
