At the turn of the decade, users began to massively abandon prefabricated cookers consisting of an oven and hotplates, in favor of separate ovens and cooktops. The trend has 2 good reasons:
- first, separate manufacturing allows you to significantly simplify the design and reduce the cost of repairs;
- secondly, it becomes possible to implement various design solutions in the field of cuisine.
In the Wake of high demand, the editorial Board decided to conduct an independent market research. During the competition, we selected 14 of the best oven companies that can be trusted and whose products can be recommended to a wide range of consumers. The following parameters were used as evaluation criteria:
- the available functionality;
- level of reliability and quality of service;
- average cost and number of price segments;
- user and expert reviews.
How to choose an oven
When choosing an oven, pay attention to the following criteria::
Gas or electric.The issue is controversial, but many manufacturers have already abandoned the production of gas ovens. This is motivated by the fact that it is necessary to observe fairly strict safety measures, which results in additional costs during manufacturing. We recommend choosing electric ovens, if only because their range is much wider.
Independent or dependent.The layout of your kitchen is very important here. An independent oven can be placed in any place where communications reach. The dependent will stand only under the hob, thereby forming a classic stove.
Overall dimensions. At the selection stage, be sure to take into account the amount of space in your kitchen. If this is a small nook in a 1-or 2-room apartment, then you should take a closer look at the ovens with a width of 45 centimeters. If the space is much larger, then feel free to choose an oven from 60 to 90 centimeters.
Type of self-cleaning.Depending on this parameter, there are 3 types of ovens:
- with hydrolysis self-cleaning – weakening of layers of fat and carbon deposits due to the action of steam. The most inefficient and cheap cleaning method.
- with catalytic self-cleaning-splitting occurs on the walls of the oven due to special enamel treatment. In this case, the door and bottom will get dirty, as in a standard oven.
- with pyrolytic self-cleaning – burning out all dirt at a temperature of 500 degrees Celsius. All you have to do is wash off the ash.
Additional features.If automatic cooking programs, defrosting, pizza mode, slow cooling, etc. are important to you, then study the functional set of the oven in detail before buying.
Security settings. If you have children, then the best solution is to choose an oven with a child protection function and tangential blowing of the walls. The first will completely eliminate interference in the cooking process on the part of children, and the second will allow you not to get burned if you accidentally touch the equipment.
Rating of the best oven companies
|Rating of the best oven companies||1||AEG||5.0|
Another representative of Germany, AEG, rightfully becomes the leader of the rating. It also converted the production facility to produce exclusively electric ovens, and like Miele, it has taken the path of training professional appliances. The range of ovens is represented by the premium segment. They have everything you need for a comfortable operation every day: responsive touch displays, thermal probes, pyrolysis cleaning mechanisms, particularly resistant non-stick coatings, etc.
A prominent representative of the AEG brand is the BER 455120 b model. It is characterized by an energy class A++, the possibility of heating up to 275 degrees Celsius, the function of adding steam, convection and grill, as well as telescopic guides.
The second contender is the AEG BSR 892330 M, which offers heating up to 300 degrees Celsius in a continuous range (without discrete modes), the function of protecting settings from children and all the same functions that the previous model carries. The only negative is hydrolysis, not pyrolytic cleaning of the oven.
On the second line of the rating is a German company that produces electric ovens for professionals in the field of cooking. No hints of pretentiousness – extremely important and necessary functions. For example, all models are equipped with thermal probes and a pyrolysis cleaning mechanism. The door surfaces and sidewalls stay cool thanks to tangential blowing, and the entire interior volume has a Perfect Clean non-stick coating.
As for specific representatives, we recommend that you take a closer look at the most budget-friendly version of Miele H 2265-1 B ACTIVE with 76 liters of volume and 5 levels of pan installation. For more demanding users, we can recommend the H 2860 BP in a black case. Complete set of functions that can only be applied to ovens, including long-lasting telescopic guides, timer and much more.
IN the Neff product range, there is already a hint of pretentiousness and elitism. Fortunately, only a few special models of ovens “sin” in this way. The Germans have long abandoned the production of gas models, concentrating their main forces on electric versions. In fact, NEFF is the antagonist of the Miele company. If the latter is chasing technological efficiency, while significantly increasing prices, then the former is trying to compensate for the functionality and cost of the finished product. This can be a key factor in choosing between the two brands of ovens, but, as they say, to each his own.
In the recommendations, we decided to mention the NEFF B15M42C3, made in black with gold trim on the handles. This style is not suitable for any kitchen, but it will definitely cause a lot of enthusiastic responses. The model offers 8 heating modes, a temperature of 275 degrees Celsius, a timer and a digital display, as well as hydrolysis (steam) cleaning. The second oven-NEFF B1ACE0AN0R-is a more progressive version with 71 liters of volume and 7 heating modes. It has everything you need for comfortable everyday use, including child protection.
Siemens is exclusively engaged in the production of premium electric ovens. This is due to the low demand for products in the Russian market, but unlike LG, the company feels good and is not going to curtail production. Partly due to the fact that all ovens belong to limited editions – many combine the functions of microwave ovens, have separate cabinets for cooking several dishes at once and are highly energy efficient.
As an example, let’s take the Siemens HB634GHS1-a variant of an electric oven for 48 thousand rubles. It is heated to a temperature of 300 degrees Celsius, has 13 heating modes and 71 liters of internal volume. All parameters are set using the touch screen, which perfectly complements the appearance, making it elegant and progressive.
The second option is more expensive: Siemens HB675G0S1 with similar parameters and almost the same appearance, but with a pyrolytic cleaning function. In fact, all the difference in price here goes to increase the reliability of individual components. Believe me, this is the case when overpaying really makes sense.
One of the premium manufacturers in the oven segment, which supplies the market with electric and gas models of the highest quality. Over the past few years, Electrolux has taken up the topic of Wellness, as a result of which many lines of built-in appliances have been able to cook food for a couple. Recirculation of the liquid was made possible by exposure to low temperatures and the formation of a steam cushion. Consequently, some particularly important components and the internal structure of the ovens have succumbed to change.
The production of separate ovens with two or more independent compartments has also become a trend. This step allows you to prepare several dishes at once without mixing odors and aromas.
If you want to buy an electric oven, then we advise you to pay attention to Electrolux EOB 53434 AK. An excellent set of user reviews, 72 liters of usable volume, 8 heating modes, heated switches for safety and a convenient electronic display. This is only a small part of what this model is good for. Its price starts from 27 thousand rubles.
The second option is an Electrolux EOG 92102 CX gas oven. It implements the functions of convection and grill, there is a skewer. Control is carried out by rotary handles. The useful volume is 70 liters. Heating is carried out in 5 modes. Such a Cabinet is quite expensive, but it is guaranteed to last for a long time.
The manufacturer of inexpensive and high-quality appliances keeps the brand in the segment of kitchen ovens. The range includes gas, electric and combined models. Bosch follows the General market trends, as a result of which it is gradually focusing its production capacity on the production of built-in ovens, abandoning full-size independent devices. It is quite difficult to note some of the characteristic features inherent in models, since their set can vary greatly even within the same price segment.
As a good oven for operation can allocate electric Bosch HBG634BW1 and gas Bosch HGN22F350. The first one is famous for its versatility and uniform heating throughout the entire internal volume. The second one has more specific features: the presence of a touch control unit, 5 implemented heating modes, the presence of convection and grill, as well as a thermal probe for assessing the readiness of dishes in the set. This model is relatively inexpensive and can serve as a good help in the home kitchen.
Let’s make a reservation right away: Gorenje is not engaged in the production of gas ovens. For this reason, it may seem to many that it does not deserve to be on the 7th place of our rating. However, we will try to convince you otherwise.
In a global sense, Gorenje ovens can be called a synthesis of practicality and innovation. Even in the budget segment of built-in appliances, you can find options with touch controls, a large number of heating modes and automatic cooking programs. The level of reliability is much higher than that of representatives of the lower rating.
As a worthy representative of the company, we can highlight the Gorenje BO 637 INI oven. It is famous for its excellent maintenance of the set temperature and excellent thermal insulation of the door – even with prolonged exposure to heat, it remains moderately cold. There is a child protection feature that blocks the sensor. And the final feature is the ability to quickly remove the door to completely clean the internal volume of the oven. We also recommend that you take a closer look at Gorenje BO 658-ORA-B.
Perhaps one of the most customer-oriented brands among the big ten manufacturers of ovens. In the range of Hotpoint-Ariston you can find ovens of all price segments: from budget mechanical to premium touch models. Traditionally, the main disadvantage here is considered to be the “poor” configuration – the number of grids and baking trays. However, this is not such a big problem, since many users have sets of special dishes and baking pans by default. But there are plenty of strong features: there are unique functions such as a separate pizza cooking mode, and high efficiency in all operating modes thanks to a dual-circuit heating system.
Among all the representatives of the built-in ovens Hotpoint-Ariston highlight FA5 844 JH IX. The advantages of the model include 71 liters of useful volume, 10 heating modes and the implementation of several automatic programs for specific dishes. The most important thing is that it has child protection.
Among the gas ovens, it is worth taking a closer look at the Hotpoint-Ariston GA2 124 BL. Low cost coupled with excellent equipment allow this model to lead in sales among its closest competitors.
Hansa entered the market in 1992, but quickly advanced among competitors due to the quality and excellent design of its products. Hansa ovens have all the important features of kitchen appliances: reliability, good Assembly and versatility. Until recently, the company’s most popular offer was an electric oven with more than 10 heating modes, a separate delicate defrosting mode and the ability to determine the degree of readiness of a dish using a complete dipstick. The price is appropriate. However, there is also a small drawback inherent in all Hansa equipment: replaceable elements and spare parts are extremely expensive.
The Hansa BOES68402 electric oven has a balance in price and quality. It has 8 modes of setting the degree of heating, performs the functions of a convection oven and grill. The settings are set via the touch screen on the elegant front panel. Gas ovens in the range of this company can not be noted.
A company that exclusively produces kitchen appliances. It gets a rather low position in the rating only due to its low popularity among Russian consumers, although in fact the supplied ovens can be compared with models from Gorenje or Bosch. MAUNFELD works mainly for the medium and premium market segments, producing mainly electric ovens. There is some asceticism in their design, but there are no complaints about efficiency and reliability.
The best representative of the company according to users is EOEC 586W-an inexpensive electric oven with the ability to heat up to 280 degrees Celsius. Its internal volume is 58 liters, and the entire heating range is divided into 7 modes. Of additions you can select the modes of convection and grill and hydrolysis treatment.
Among the gas ovens, the MGOGG 673RIB TM stands out strongly – an extravagant model with a claim to elitism. The combination of cream-colored case and bronze handles will not fit into every interior. The internal volume of the Cabinet is 67 liters, and only 4 heating modes are offered. There is gas control and all standard additional options.
LG’s presence in the built-in electric oven segment is gradually disappearing. Perhaps the company itself felt that it was not advisable to spend production capacity on the production of premium equipment. And the Koreans supplied only such ovens to the market. It was standard practice to use digital displays that show current settings, more than 10 heating modes, hydrolysis cleaning, rich equipment, etc.
LG LB645479T1 and LG LB645E329T1 are among the last decent ovens of the company on the market. Both cabinets have 67 liters of usable volume, a touch screen display, convection and grill functions, and heated switches. The number of heating modes in the first version is 11 pieces, and in the second – only 7. Moreover, in the first model, the settings are protected from children. The cost level is consistently high: 39 and 33 thousand rubles, respectively.
Manufacturer of budget electric ovens DARINA is very popular among Russian consumers. The company managed to move away from austerity in terms of design of its equipment, and give it more correct, “noble” features. Coupled with good quality and high reliability, this has become one of the main catalysts for increasing demand. All this has made the company a formidable competitor to premium brands that operate in several price segments at once.
The 1U BDE111 707 W and 1V5 BDE111 705 b models will be recommended for purchase in the case of DARINA. By and large, the difference between them lies in the color and the principle of execution of the switch handles. The first comes to the market in white with rotary handles, and the second – in black with recessed ones. Otherwise, almost complete identity: 50 liters of useful volume, the presence of convection and grill functions, 9 heating modes and A-class energy consumption.
The GEFEST trademark belongs to a large holding company “Brestgazoapparat”, whose head office is located in Belarus. In the range of ovens, you can find gas, electric and combined models for any price segment. Yes, the variety of ovens does not go to any comparison with the title manufacturers of the market, but the company is satisfied with everything: the reduced price makes their products competitive.
As examples of ovens, we will highlight the electric model GEFEST DA 602-02 with the functions of a grill, convection, skewer, hydrolysis cleaning and safety systems. In addition, the model has a pleasant appearance, has a convenient electronic timer and mechanical knobs for setting operating modes.
A variant of the gas oven, the GEFEST DGE 621-01, also has a skewer and grill, but is equipped with a gas control function instead of electrical safety nets. The model has an elegant black body with three handles for controlling operating modes. Very reliable and efficient device.
Beko is an inexpensive representative of the oven segment. The main part of its product range is electric, and this is where the manufacturer has achieved very good technical results. For example, almost all ovens have a smart air filtration function that operates on 2 or 3 levels inside the Cabinet. This allows you to avoid mixing odors and prepare several dishes at the same time.
As a good example of BEKO products, we would like to highlight the BCM 12300 X. This model has 48 liters of volume and allows you to bring the temperature inside to 280 degrees Celsius. It is controlled via a child-proof touch screen, and additional functions include a convection mode and a grill. Second contender: Beko BIE 21300 B with 6 heating modes up to 250 degrees Celsius. It almost completely repeats the control patterns of the previous model, but it has a hydrolysis cleaning function and is performed only in a stylish black case.
