One of the best electric wall ovens

A wall oven partnered with a cooktop offers a number of advantages over a traditional range, which combines the cooktop and oven in one appliance.

For starters, you can install the oven on just about any wall and at your preferred height, so you don’t have to bend or squat to remove a heavy roast. This approach also offers more flexibility when you’re remodeling an entire kitchen, because you can install the appliances in separate areas, creating dedicated workspace for each.

Consumer Reports tests dozens of cooktops and wall ovens each year. If you're looking for more information about the advantages, start with our buying guide.

“Buying a separate cooktop and wall oven allows you to get great performance from each appliance without trying to find a single range that excels at everything,” says Tara Casaregola, who oversees testing of ranges, cooktops, and wall ovens for Consumer Reports.

You probably wouldn’t retrofit your kitchen for this reason alone, but if you’re undergoing a renovation or already have separate appliances, you can mix and match from the models in our ratings to get everything you want in both an oven and a cooktop.

We test single and double wall ovens for their ability to bake, broil, and self-clean. We also use our own measurement of usable interior space—often finding that ovens are far smaller than their manufacturers claim.
