If you're buying a wall oven, you've probably looked at a lot of brands already. Today, the experts at Appliances Connection are spotlighting three manufacturers of wall ovens, all of whom are among the best European wall oven brands on the market.
For professional quality and elegant design, it's hard to beat Bertazzoni as one of the best European wall oven brands you can buy. All their appliances are designed and manufactured in Italy, and they bring unique style and ease of use to your kitchen. In the Professional Series, look for heavy-duty control knobs, professional-grade handles, and intuitive controls. These wall ovens can have up to seven shelf levels, allowing you to maximize your cooking space and set it exactly the way you need it. Ovens from the Master Series have a huge number of functions as well, while being more budget-friendly than the Professional Series. All Bertazzoni's stainless steel ovens resist fingerprints, wiping clean with a simple swipe from a rag. Bertazzoni wall ovens also feature a Dual Diagonal Convection system which efficiently circulates heat for convection cooking results that are a cut above the rest. If true European convection isn't your preferred cooking method, try one of their steam ovens to truly lock in the moisture of your food, or their speed ovens to supplement (or even replace) your microwave.
Miele's reputation for high-end, German engineered appliances definitely extends to their wall ovens. They provide a wide variety of unique features that make even the most complicated cooking jobs easy. The M Touch and Sensortronic Series both use the MasterChef menu to choose the perfect automatic program for your food, while many of their ovens have wireless precision temperature probes to make overcooking meat a thing of the past. Look for TwinPower fans that evenly distribute hot air in their true European convection ovens. Their steam ovens include MultiSteam technology that distributes steam externally and evenly, speeding up cooking times. On some Miele wall ovens you can even store up to 20 of your favorite dishes, ensuring that every meal is cooked to perfection. Also keep an eye out for Miele's MultiLingua interface that lets you operate their appliances in up to 32 languages.
Fulgor Milano's suite of Italian-crafted appliances includes dozens of wall ovens. For the highest professional-grade sophistication, look at the Sofia Series, which includes everything from heavy-duty metal knobs to large, full-color touch displays. Meanwhile, the 600 Series brings professional-grade convenience into your home while keeping your family in mind: its cool-touch doors lock tightly and are safe to handle even when cooking at high temperatures. These ovens also have telescopic sliding racks and halogen lights so you can easily access your food as soon as it's cooked. If you want serious looks, the Distinto Series is an exquisite option for you: its wall ovens have knobs and touch displays that blend seamlessly with their stainless steel or black exteriors.
Is a wall oven worth it?
Wall ovens provide flexibility and convenience because you don't have to place your cooktop in the same space as your oven. They can also be installed at arm level, which is useful if you have trouble bending over.
Do wall ovens need a vent?
Wall ovens don't need to vent to the outside; they are self-contained and discharge their heat through the front of the unit. This means that with a wall oven, you don't need an expensive remodel to add venting.
Can a wall oven go under the counter?
Single wall ovens can usually be installed below a cooktop or under a counter, increasing the customization options you have when installing them.
