The Double Oven Range - Features & Product Reviews

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 7, 2019 8:30:00 AM


If you love to cook and often find yourself cooking multi-course meals that require cooking two or more dishes at the same time, double oven ranges should be on your shopping list (for more tips, check out our range buying guide). Double oven ranges allow you to cook two different dishes simultaneously at different temperature settings, or use just one oven for faster preheating than if you had to preheat a full-size oven cavity.

There are many different double oven ranges on the market today in both slide in and freestanding styles, so you'll have a great selection to choose from. Beyond just the exterior style, you can also choose from all major fuel types: electric, gas, induction, and dual fuel ranges. These ranges start at around $1,499 and premium models can be $4,000 or more.

Will a Steam Clean Oven Really Clean?

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Mar 23, 2019 8:30:00 AM


In the old days, manual cleaning was the only option when buying a new oven. Getting down on your kitchen floor and scrubbing the inside of your oven using harsh oven cleaners was the only way to get it clean. In the 1960s, self cleaning range models were introduced by General Electric. Many consumers love the self cleaning feature, but as time has passed, consumers have demanded alternatives. Steam clean oven models were born to meet the need for a less harsh, faster, and more energy-efficient oven cleaning option.
