Best Wall Ovens - GE Profile PTS7000SNSS Lifestyle Image 

 

An electric wall oven provides a high-end built-in look and lets you access your oven without having to bend over. They tend to be more expensive than traditional ranges and are available in standard 24", 27", and 30" widths. Compared to a typical range oven, they tend to be smaller, but not everyone needs six cubic feet of oven space (and if you need jumbo oven capacity, a double wall oven might be perfect)!

Our list of the best wall ovens for 2020 covers a variety of brands and price points to help you find the perfect option for your home. All but one of these 30" models features true convection, and prices range from $1,649 to $4,149. We've numbered them for your convenience, but they are listed in no particular order.

Before We Get Started: 4 Quick Buying Tips

  • Consider the controls. This is the part of your wall oven you'll have to deal with first whenever you want to cook something, so make sure the control layout makes sense! High-end models may offer touchscreens and advanced cooking features. Although practice makes perfect, your initial impression can help you decide if this wall oven works for you.

  • How does it clean? Different brands offer different cleaning options. Some offer heavy-duty oven racks that can be left in the oven for a high-heat self clean cycle. Others offer a quick lower-heat steam clean option. A model may only come with steam clean or self clean because the coating that allows the steam cleaning to work can't handle the high temperatures of self clean cycles, although brands like LG and GE offer both. 

  • Check the dimensions if you're replacing an older model. Come into the store with your wall oven cutout dimensions on hand! Although most of today's models are relatively interchangeable if you choose one with the same width, there are still variations in depth and height that can impact how or if a wall oven fits into your cabinetry. Many brands offer Fit Guarantees to help with this. Read more about wall oven dimensions here.

  • Understand convection. A couple of key points to remember are that True Convection/True European Convection/European Convection are all the same thing - a fan plus an additional heating element to improve air circulation. True convection is a nice option for bakers. Fan convection is the step down option and is still really helpful for improving multi rack cooking and roasting results. You can read more about convection here.

3. GE Profile PTS7000SNSS - 5.0 cu ft - $2,749

GE has made it to our list yet again, this time with a model from their high-end GE Profile line: the GE Profile PTS7000SNSS. It retails at $2,749 in stainless steel, and is also available in black slate and black stainless steel for $2,849. There are a lot of cool features packed into this wifi connected wall oven! 

First, let's start with the precision cooking modes.

This technology aims to make it so much easier to cook both new and familiar recipes!

The advanced convection system, True Convection with Direct Air, moves air down through vents in the oven ceiling to provide improved airflow to all parts of the food and down into the cookware as well. With the multi-rack convection setting, air will flow mainly from the back wall instead. The convection fan also reverses direction to improve air circulation. This is definitely one of the best wall ovens for baking, and for cooking in general!

6. Frigidaire Professional FPEW3077RF - 5.1 cu ft - $2,299

If you're a multitasker who often juggles cooking multiple dishes at once, the Frigidaire Professional FPEW3077RF might be the best wall oven for you! It comes in smudge-proof stainless steel at $2,299. With the PowerPlus No Preheat option and dual timers, cooking two or three recipes simultaneously just got easier!
