Other Features to Consider When Shopping

Feature Things to Consider
Convection Convection ovens are 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. Many standard ovens include a convection feature for baking, broiling, or browning.
Temperature Management System Temperature management technology assists in even heat distribution. Sensors monitor the oven temperature to provide the optimal amount of heat. This makes for more uniform baking and browning. Even on multiple racks, temperature management technology helps keep cooking and baking consistent.
Drawers An oven you purchase may include a drawer which holds a microwave, a broiler compartment, a warming compartment, or may simply provide extra storage space.
Color The most popular oven colors are stainless steel and black, but white and bisque are often available for purchase as well.
Oven Window Some oven doors have a window within the door. This window may be tinted or clear. Clear windows give the ability to view food cooking without having to open the door and release heat.
Recessed Oven Door This type of door is designed to reduce heat exposure to surrounding cabinets to avoid discoloration.
Oven Racks Racks are metal grates that give the ability to place food at different positions in the oven for optimal cooking. Noting the number of racks an oven includes is important when shopping. Some ovens have a large enough capacity that you can purchase additional racks and use them without any difficulty.
Self-Clean These models have a setting which cleans the interior of the oven after cooking.
Interior Lighting Lights inside the oven help you more easily see your food cooking.
Hidden Bake Element The bake element is covered in the oven to make cleaning easier.
Sabbath Mode This feature is available on select models and is in keeping with kosher practices during the Sabbath.
