Width (in.) This measurement indicates the width of the front of the oven in inches. It does not indicate the necessary size of the cabinet cut-out, which is model dependent. Note that a wall oven will typically fit into the same size or wider cabinet.
Covered element Smooth cover or floor over the bottom baking element makes for easier cleanup of drips and spills.
Convection mode Has a convection feature that uses a fan or two to circulate heated air, and sometimes an extra heating element. The convection mode can be turned off if you prefer conventional cooking.
Temperature probe A temperature probe is an electronic thermometer that can be inserted into cuts of meat. It allows for the internal temperature of the food to be displayed on the control panel and for users to control the oven.
We purchased the Double Wall Oven Model which is essentially two of these, one stacked on top of the other. The ovens heat up quickly due to the fact that the convection fan comes on to heat them up to temp. If you are not convecting, the fan(s) shut off when reaching temp. Time to 350F is about 8 minutes. A seoarate calibrated thermometer confirmed the ovens did not need adjusting, the oven thermometers are accurate. <br /><br />Multiple positions for the racks let you fine tune positioning. Supplied Temp probe worked great with a Turkey and with a whole Beef Tenderloin on separate occasions.<br /><br />The fact that you cannot program start/stop times was something we discovered after purchasing and installing and we were disappointed with that but we'll live, I guess. That is really the only gripe I have with these units. <br /><br />Cooking with convection is not noisy at all and dual lights make it easy to see inside.<br /><br />Overall we are very satisfied with the ovens!
