Some ovens come equipped with convenient self-cleaning functions. Pyrolytic models burn away fatty splashes, steam-cleaning uses water vapour to loosen burnt-on food, while catalytic liners absorb grease as you cook. In some cases, you might even find models with both pyrolytic and steam-cleaning functions. Whatever model you pick, you can relax knowing cleaning is super simple.
Some ovens are equipped with handy features that let you cook three dishes at once without any nasty flavour transfer. Make sure to keep an eye out for models with even heat distribution, as they carefully circulate hot air inside the cavity to stop your tasty tuna bake spoiling that batch of brownies. So, you can get the starter, main, and dessert all in together.
To add a modern touch to your kitchen, swap rotary dials for snazzy touch controls. With no visible buttons or clunky sliders in sight, it gives the oven a simple, sleek look.
If you've ever wondered how much you'll spend running a super-hot pyrolytic cleaning cycle, it usually costs between 80p and £1. Not bad for the elbow grease it'll save.
Ovens typically have space for three or four shelves, but large capacity models might come with more.
If you’re replacing a double oven, you might want to consider buying two combi or compact ovens instead, as they offer more flexibility, and often have more cooking features to choose from. Not only that, they’ll have no problem fitting in the same space.
If you need a lot of oven space, you might be considering a double model. But did you know single ovens come with more features? If you've got enough space, you could go for a combination of two single models, or a single unit paired with a compact or combi oven.
Some full-sized single ovens feature plenty of extra functions. Whether that’s the handy microwave setting saving you vital kitchen space, grilling for the perfect finish on those savoury skewers, or even healthier cooking options like air-frying.
If you like boiled veg with your meal, try steaming instead - it locks in all the vital nutrients as well as making a tasty side.
Telescopic rails are fully extendable and designed with comfortable cooking in mind. That means no singed pinkies reaching into a hot oven to check on food – it’ll slide out nice and smooth, making it easier to take out your meals too.
A quick heads-up – using the steam cleaning function on your new oven typically costs between 6p and 9p per cycle.
Multifunctional ovens take much less time to preheat, and if you’re cooking for more than 20 minutes, you may not even need to preheat at all.
While some models might vary ever so slightly, ovens often come in standard sizes – most single ovens will fit in a 60cm tall oven housing unit, for example.
Some models rated 13A or lower can come with a plug, but the majority will need hardwiring by a professional. Even if your new unit comes with a plug, your last oven may have used a hardwired cable connection, so you’ll still need an electrician to fit it.

The most efficient electric ovens will have an A++ energy rating. Equipped with clever features, they only use the amount of energy needed and keep waste to a minimum. You can check each oven’s energy efficiency rating on our product pages.
If you’re wondering what the best oven on the market is, you have to consider your needs first. With plenty of room and lots of mouths to feed, a range cooker might be what you’re after. On the other hand, beginner chefs in smaller homes will likely want a compact electric single oven with plenty of automatic programmes to make their lives easier. Not only that, but there’s also energy costs to consider too. Whether you’re after a feature-packed kitchen companion, or something simple to bake a few brownies in, we’ve got plenty of options to choose from.
Choosing a new oven can be a bit overwhelming if you don’t know where to start. The most important thing to consider is space – it’s no good eyeing up that dreamy range cooker if you’ve not got the room to keep it. Once you’ve measured up and know what you’re working with, think about what you want from a new oven. Do you want lots of automatic programmes for simple meals? Or are you batch-cooking delicious brownies for all your friends? Whether you’re after a state-of-the-art eco-friendly sous chef or something more traditional, our handy buying guide has heaps of tips to help you choose a model that’s right for you.
Generally speaking, you shouldn’t really need to replace your oven very often. While you might need to replace parts after a couple of years, a well-looked after oven can last 10-15 years. We’ve got a huge range of ovens designed to stand the test of time.
While there’s no need to replace your oven on a regular basis, you’ll know when it’s time for a new kitchen companion to take the helm. If you’ve had your current oven over 3 or 4 years, and have noticed it takes longer to cook food, you should start considering an upgrade. However, it’s always worth checking whether you may just need a replacement part before you splash out on a new one. If your oven is still under a manufacturer warranty, it may be as simple as contacting them to get a free fix.
Cleaning an oven can sound like hard work, but many models have clever features to help make light work of it. For example, pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens use intense heat to burn food residue to ash, while hydrolytic functions use steam to loosen any dried-on remains. In the absence of those, some models have a special greaseproof enamel coating that stops spatters from sticking, so you can just give it a quick wipe.
Depending on the model and settings you’re using, the amount of electricity an oven uses can vary. For detailed information about how much electricity each oven uses, all of our models list the energy rating on the product pages and have a downloadable data sheet for you to compare and contrast. Also, look out for the handy Youreko tool, which gives a rundown on average usage costs while comparing models at a similar price point on our site.
A convection oven uses a built-in fan to evenly move hot air around every corner of the cavity. This makes sure that, no matter what shelf you pop your food on, you’ll get consistently perfect results.
There are a few key differences with how fan and gas ovens cook food. Fan ovens will use an electric heating element behind a fan to evenly move hot air around every shelf for consistent results. A gas oven uses a flame to cook meals, meaning the level of heat varies on each level on your oven. This can be ideal for cooking roast dinners, with meat at the bottom while your spuds slowly bake above. They tend to heat up faster than fan ovens. While there’re pros and cons for each type of oven, you need to decide which will suit your style of cooking best. If you need help making up your mind, our handy buying guide has plenty of tips to steer you in the right direction.
