That final leap happened in 1947 when Thermador, a major innovator in the industry, introduced the very first wall oven, along with many other stainless steel kitchen appliances. This innovation quickly gained the favor of cooking enthusiasts throughout the country. Thermador's first built-in oven featured recessed broiling, double compartment doors, and a protective hood. This innovation, boosted Thermador's reputation and helped them gain greater notoriety with homeowners and builders. The invention of modern-day wall ovens exponentially increased user convenience in the kitchen. Two of the biggest advantages that wall ovens offer are increased baking space and easier access. Modern wall ovens are available as single or doubles oven and can measure up to 48 inches in height. Also, wall ovens are easily accessible and eliminate the need for bending (depending on where you install them). The easy accessibility of wall oven allows chefs of all ages to enjoy baking!
