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.
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.
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.
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.

Compact single ovens sit at eye level in your oven housing unit and are always powered by electric, never gas. They have a maximum height of 45.8cm, so you'll only need to measure from the top to the bottom of your existing oven. You won't have to worry about the width or depth, as these are standard across all models.
A built-in oven is placed in a kitchen cabinet at eye level, while a built under oven is placed under your kitchen counter.
Manufacturers don’t usually state a clearance for the rear of ovens or cookers as they’re usually all a standard depth.
All single and double ovens will fit into a standard 600mm wide housing unit, but the height of the this will vary.
You’ll only need to note down the height of the oven you like as the width (59.7cm) and depth (56cm) are usually standard across manufacturers.
Built-in single ovens tend to have the same width (59.7cm) and depth (56cm) across manufacturers so they can fit into a standard oven housing unit. The one measurement that can vary is the height.
Similarly, to single ovens, built-in double ovens also stick to standard dimension for width (59.7cm) and depth (56cm) across manufacturers. The height dimension will vary between models though.
If you want a double oven under a worktop, you’ll need to go for a built under model as opposed to built-in. Built under double ovens have a shorter height of 70cm, so that they can fit under a kitchen worktop.
