Best Ranges With Big Ovens
These stoves have ovens that can hold an entire holiday feast
Even if our holiday tables feel poignantly emptier this year, there will be a time when we can all gather again. When we do, we're going to want to pack our ovens with meals big enough to feed a large family or a big gathering of friends.
For when that day comes, we've highlighted some of the very best ranges in our ratings that feature large ovens.
How We Test Oven Capacity
In addition to our standard set of cooktop and oven performance tests, which call for heating water, simmering, and baking upward of 2,400 cookies and 400 cakes per year, we assess how much usable space each range's oven has, not just total size. Ranges with the biggest ovens and the broadest array of rack positions tend to fare best in our capacity test.
We test mainstream brands, such as Amana and GE, as well as pro-style brands like Thermador and Viking. CR members can read on for ratings and reviews of five of the best ranges with large ovens from our tests (all 30-inches wide). You can also browse our comprehensive range ratings of more than 180 models. And you don't have to be a CR member to check out our range buying guide.
