*Review of the best according to the editors. About the selection criteria. The present material is subjective, not an advertisement and does not serve as a guide to purchase. It is necessary to consult with an expert before purchase.
This review focuses on built-in ovens. We have selected 10 best models from renowned manufacturers, including Russian companies. For convenience, we have divided all nominees into 3 categories – the best inexpensive models, the best medium and premium class ovens, and the best compact oven with a front width of only 45 cm.
When selecting specific models we were not only guided by the popularity of the brand, functionality and practicality, but also took into account the characteristics of technology in real life. To do this, we studied reviews from customers who have been using a particular gas oven for a certain amount of time, so that we can identify all of its drawbacks, advantages and features. Such information is very helpful when choosing a particular model.
All the data for our review was obtained from public sources of information – the sites of manufacturers, thematic forums, various “otzoviks” (for example, or otziv-), as well as from the Yandex marketplace.Market.
How to choose a gas oven
When choosing a gas built-in oven, you need to pay attention to the following points:
- Volume and dimensions.
- additional options.
Gas ovens come in two sizes – standard and compact. In the first case, the front of the technique has a width of 60 cm, and in the second – 45 cm. Note that models with a narrow body are very few, so count on a huge range in this case will not work. This is quite a specific technique, so not every company has mastered its production.
There are many more standard sized ovens, so there will always be something to choose from in this category in terms of appearance, equipment and functionality.
Gas ovens come in two configurations – gas only or combined. The first one has a bottom burner inside and an open grill (not on all models). The second option – the bottom is gas and the grill is electric. Electric grill is considered more practical and safer than an open gas burner, but a completely gas oven does not consume electricity during operation (the light bulb does not count).
The functionality of the oven directly depends on its configuration and equipment. Among the useful options are the presence of a rotating spit for grilling chicken and other dishes, as well as convection for even cooking of all ingredients (especially important for baking).
The functions that provide comfortable use of technology, it is worth attributing the presence of a timer with shutdown and delayed start (in the budget models, there is only a mechanical timer with audible alarm). You should also pay attention to the oven cleaning system, which can be hydrolytic (water is poured into the tray, which evaporates during heating, softening the grease on the walls) or catalytic (special enamel with self-cleaning function).
The right gas oven will cook a variety of dishes quickly, conveniently, and safely – from simple casseroles and grilled chicken, to cakes and other baked goods.
