Tips for Selecting the Right Oven

A reliable and powerful oven helps you cook all of the best dishes at home. There's no need to spend a lot of money on meals at restaurants or fast food establishments when your stove makes it fun to bake and roast.

If you want to get the most benefits for your investment, start thinking about what you need before you head to the appliance store. Considering the options and gathering the right information will ensure you pick a model that helps you cook for years to come.

Fuel Options
All modern ovens use electricity, natural gas or propane to produce plenty of heat. Check what fuels are available at your home before purchasing a new oven. If you really want propane, you may need to have a tank and line installed. Some range models include both electricity and propane, with the powerful gas for the burners and the steady electrical heat for the oven. These items will be a little more expensive, but some homeowners will certainly find the increased performance worth the cost.

Space Restrictions
You may fall in love with a six burner model that features a double oven, but don't bring it home until you are sure it will fit in your kitchen. Check the exact dimensions of the opening you plan to use for your oven and take them with you to the appliance store.

It can be tricky to try to keep an extra oven sitting in your home while you wait for a contractor to rebuild your cabinets to accommodate a bigger appliance. Freestanding models don't need to fit tightly between your counters, but they will need more open space. They tend to lack the wall insulation that allows an oven to sit right next to flammable wood paneling.

Cleaning Up
Every range will look amazing in your kitchen until a pot boils over or a roast spits fat on the oven walls. Don't overlook models that feature smooth and seamless tops, which make cleaning much easier. Look into the oven cavity and try to pick a model featuring a removable bottom pan. Even walls free from nooks and crannies also make it easier to scrub the walls.

Moving the Heat
If you love baking delicate soufflls and delicious cakes, consider going for a model that features convection heating. This means that the oven cavity is equipped with blowers and fans to move the air around whatever you are cooking. Many studies have shown that this prevents hot spots that can burn your cakes while leaving them raw in the center. Even temperatures also speed up cooking, which can be a real lifesaver when you are trying to cook a large Thanksgiving dinner.

Extra Features
It's easy to find top of the line ovens, such as the Rangemaster Classic Deluxe, that include many other helpful features. Some include small warming chambers to keep dinner rolls or cookies warm until your family can enjoy them. Others have built-in thermometers so you can always check that the temperature is correct before putting in a delicate dish.
