Do wall ovens need a vent?
If your wall oven is a gas unit, it will most likely need to be connected to a duct. Most wall ovens are electric, however, so they do not require venting.
How do I choose a wall oven?
One factor to consider when looking at wall ovens is internal space. If you like to cook more than one dish simultaneously, you may want to consider a model that offers more cu. ft. of space, as well as more cooking modes, and more racks for multi-shelf cleaning.
