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.
Standard single ovens can sit under your worktop or fit in at eye level in an oven housing unit and can be gas or electric. Again, you won't need to know the width or depth of your new appliance, just the height, which will be 45.9cm or higher. So, to make sure your chosen oven will fit, just measure from the top to bottom of your existing model in your kitchen.
One other thing to consider is the fuel type of your oven. If you’re replacing like-for-like (so electric for electric, or gas for gas) then it’s a simple swap, just make sure you’ve got a certified professional to install it for you.
If you want to switch fuel types, or you’re building a kitchen from scratch, you’ll need help from an electrician or gas engineer to make sure you’ve got the supply you need. Electric double ovens need hard-wiring into a 32AMP circuit, and can’t just be plugged in, while gas ovens need a dedicated gas supply.
If you don’t want to install your single oven yourself, we’ll do all the work for you! Our fully qualified experts will quickly install your appliance and make sure that everything is working perfectly, without making a mess.
