Oven Buying Guide
When choosing the right oven for your kitchen many factors should be considered. Style, size and features all need to be well thought-out before making a purchase. Please use this handy buyer's guide from Goedeker's to educate yourself on all the different choices we have to offer when purchasing a new oven.
Types of Ovens:
The Gas Oven is standard in kitchens that use gas as the main power source to power appliances and cook food. These ovens can come in single or double configurations and use open flame burners at the bottom of the oven to provide heat.
The Electric Oven is standard in many kitchens that use electricity as a power source over gas. These ovens can come in single or double configurations and use two heating elements to provide heat, one on the bottom and one on the top of the oven.
The Convection Oven is preferred by professional cooks as they use fans to circulate hot air around food for faster and more even cooking. Some convection ovens have a third heating element around the fan in the rear for even faster cooking.
