    Cooker & Oven Measurement Guide

    Buying a new cooker or oven but want to make sure it’s going to fit in your kitchen? Our handy guide will help you confidently find the right appliance.

    How to measure

    So, you’re buying a brand new oven or cooker and you’re super excited. Now all you need to do is make sure it’ll fit perfectly into your kitchen. No need to worry, our measuring guide will give you all the info to make sure you get that perfect fit for your kitchen.

    Single Ovens

    Most single ovens will fit into an oven housing unit. The only dimension you’ll need to note is the height on both standard and compact ovens, as the width (59.7cm) and depth (56cm) will be standard across all models. It’s handy to note that the standard height of compact ovens is around 45cm, compared to 60cm for a single oven.

    Standard width at around 59.5ccm. Standard height of the oven space is also around 59.5cm.

    Single ovens are 56cm deep but you'll need an extra couple of centimetres for any gas pipes.

    If you have a gas hob above your oven, it's best to buy a model with a sloping back.

    Double Ovens

    Double ovens can either be built-in at eye level or built-under in an oven housing unit. Like single ovens, the only dimension you need to note down is the height, which for most built-in models will be around 90cm. The width (59.7cm) and depth (56cm) are standard across all models. If you want it under a worktop, you’ll have to go for a built-under model, which usually have a height of around 70cm for that snug fit.

    Width and depth are standard across all models. You only need to measure the height of your space.

    For built-in models, the height is around 90cm and it'll only fit at eye-level.

    If you want one under a countertop, you'll need to find a built-under double oven which will measure around 70cm tall.

    Cookers & Range Cookers

    Cookers and range cookers are freestanding appliances, which means they can be fitted into an appropriate space between your kitchen counters. Cooker sizes will usually come in three standard widths – 50cm, 55cm and 60cm, while range cookers come in widths of 90cm, 100cm and 110cm.

    These models can easily be fitted into an appropriate space between your kitchen countertops.

    Width options are 50cm, 55cm or 60cm. Measure the space you have to find one that'll fit.

    Check the depth, allow for gas pipes and electrical sockets at the back of the appliance.
