What is a Double Oven Range?

A double oven range is a kitchen appliance that combines a stovetop and two separate ovens in a single unit varying in size, from 30” to 54” plus. This versatile appliance offers the convenience of having multiple cooking spaces, allowing you to cook different dishes simultaneously at different temperatures.


Double oven ranges are available in both gas and electric models. Gas ranges use burners that produce a flame for cooking, while electric ranges use heating elements. Consider your existing kitchen setup and personal preference when choosing between gas and electric.


These ranges also offer various features and technologies, such as convection cooking, self-cleaning options, touch controls, programmable timers, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Evaluate these additional features based on your cooking habits and preferences.

Pros and Cons of a Double Oven Kitchen Cabinet

A double oven cabinet has many perks for homeowners wanting to upgrade their kitchen appliances. First, it’s super convenient as it has two separate ovens in one unit, allowing you to cook multiple dishes at the same time at different temperatures.


This is great when you’re cooking for a big group or when time is tight. Plus, it usually comes with various oven functions, like convection baking, broiling, and self-cleaning, giving you more flexibility and control over your cooking.


Another big plus is the extra oven space it gives you. With two ovens, you can bake larger batches of cookies, roast multiple trays of veggies, or make a main course and dessert together. This is especially handy if you entertain a lot or have a big family.


But before you go for it, there are a couple of things to think about. First, it can be a bit expensive to buy and install a double oven cabinet. It’s usually pricier than a single oven, and setting it up might need changes to your kitchen cabinets or electrical systems, which can add to the overall cost.


Also, since double ovens require more space it might be tricky if your kitchen is on the smaller side, as it could limit your storage or counter space. Consider our cabinet dimensions guide to determine if your space could reasonably feature a double oven cabinet.

In summary, here’s a pros and cons list for a double oven cabinet:


  • Simultaneous cooking of multiple dishes at different temperatures
  • Various oven functions for added versatility
  • Increased cooking capacity for larger batches or multiple courses


  • Higher cost compared to single ovens
  • May require additional modifications during installation
  • Takes up more space in the kitchen, potentially limiting storage and countertop are

Why Would I Choose a Double Oven?

A few reasons why you may want to consider installing a double oven kitchen cabinet:


  • You do a lot of baking
  • You entertain family and friends frequently
  • The holidays are usually at your home
  • For resale value
  • You need a Kosher kitchen, which requires double ovens and or 2 completely separate ovens

What if I Don’t Have Room for a Double Wall Oven?

Some kitchens may be on the smaller side and may not have available wall space for a double wall oven. Perhaps a single wall oven with an additional slide-in stove/range would be a better option for you. This would allow you to have more cabinet space for your storage needs.


Another option is a convection microwave oven. Our clients really seem to love this option. A convection microwave oven has a fan inside to circulate the heat, making it capable of heating and warming food, just like an oven.


When working with your local cabinet maker and kitchen designer, discuss your options for a second or double oven. You’re putting your time, money, and energy into designing the perfect kitchen; it’s always good to have all your options available before making your final decisions. The last thing you want is to have your beautiful new kitchen completed, and you really wish you had included one.
