Large Capacity Ovens

Large Capacity Ovens

Large capacity ovens provide a great solution for big families or for anyone who likes to cook large quantities of food. Generally, anything over 6 cu. ft. is considered as a large, or mega, capacity for ovens. Standard ovens usually have 4 to 6 cu. ft. of capacities. It's an almost certainty that anything over 7 cu. ft. will be a double oven, although you can also get a large capacity range with two ovens. Therefore, when it comes to buying a large capacity oven, you have two options to choose from. You can select a built-in double wall oven and a cooktop combination or get a range instead. The combination of double wall oven and a cooktop provide a beautiful integrated, modern look, which is a great option for upgrading a kitchen while ranges offer more traditional look with more industrial look.

Double Wall Ovens Vs. Ranges

double wall ovens vs ranges

Double wall ovens are designed with two full-size ovens and come in sizes ranging from 24" to 36" with up to 9 cu. ft. of total capacities. You can also get a range with two ovens in sizes ranging from 30" to 48", although one oven will be much smaller than the other. Only the 60" ranges have two full-sized ovens, although they require a lot more kitchen space. Therefore, double wall ovens take up less kitchen space while providing more cooking capacities compared to ranges with two ovens.

Double Wall ovens

Kitchen Space - When you're buying a wall oven, you also need a cooktop. So, you'll need two areas to dedicate to cooking. Therefore, the combination of a wall oven and a cooktop will take up more space in your kitchen. Although, if space is not an issue, this combination will be a great addition to your kitchen with more modern, integrated look.

Accessibility - Wall ovens allow a flexible installation in the kitchen cabinetry, which means you can install them at an eye or waist level for an easy access to the food. This way, you won't have to bend or kneel down to take the hot or heavy dishes from the oven.

More expensive - A combination of a double wall oven and a cooktop might cost more than purchasing a single range in most of the cases, depending on the model.


Kitchen Space  - Ranges combine two appliances in one, so they will take up less space in the kitchen if you choose from 30" to 48" ranges. But if you want two full sized ovens, you'll have to go with 60" range, which will take more space than any double wall oven and cooktop combination.

Accessibility - The oven is located beneath the cooktop so it's inconvenient for someone who has difficulties with bending and kneeling down to access the food.

Less expensive  - Typically, buying a range costs less than purchasing a wall oven and a cooktop, because the range combines both -- the oven and the cooktop in one unit. So, purchasing one appliance will be less expensive than buying two, depending on the model.
