Indesit IDU6340IX Aria
High Capacity Double Oven
One of the biggest limitations that many people find in their ovens is that they often have a very limited capacity for cooking food. This is especially a problem for those who often have to cook large meals, such as those with large families, or for those who often have guests over for dinner. Having a double oven can help a great deal in this, but it is even better to have one that has a large capacity in both ovens. This is exactly what you get with the Indesit IDU6340IX Aria Electric Built Under Double Oven, the perfect kitchen companion for those who find themselves needing to cook large quantities of food at a time.
This two-chamber oven comes with a total capacity of 96 litres, ensuring that it will be an excellent purchase for anyone who needs to cook in large quantities. The functionality of the ovens also makes it possible to defrost food and use it as a slow cooker, thanks to the multifunction capabilities built into this model. In fact, the oven includes a total of 5 different cooking modes, including fan mode, traditional grill, and variable grill, in addition to the modes listed above. This gives you plenty of options for the types of food that you will cook and in how exactly you want them cooked, bringing a load of capabilities to your normal kitchen fare.
Cook The Way You Want
This double oven has a built-under design that will make it a perfect fit in most modern kitchens and includes convenient controls that give you quick and easy access to the different cooking modes and temperature settings that you need. Each oven has its own separate temperature control, letting you set the exact temperature that you need in each one, allowing you to cook different dishes simultaneously.

Cookology CDO720BK 60cm
Flexible Cooking Companion
Ovens are one of the most important appliances in any kitchen, and having one that gives you a lot of flexibility in what you can cook and how to cook it is something that every person needs. That is why the Cookology CDO720BK Built-under Electric Double Oven is such a great choice for any kitchen, especially in one where the cook needs the ability to cook a lot of different meals. This handy double oven offers a variety of different cooking options that should cover pretty much any type of cooking that you need to do, whether it be roasting, baking, grilling, or whatever other cooking modes that you need.
One of the most unique aspects of this oven is that the top and bottom ovens offer different cooking options, letting you choose which oven you need for a specific task. For instance, the top oven allows for static top or bottom heat, as well as grilling options, and it even allows for open grilling when you need quick and easy access to the food for turning and positioning. The bottom oven for fan cooking evenly spreads the heat throughout all parts of the food as well as defrost and light cooking modes. Of course, with all of that said, this double oven's sophisticated functionality allows you to cook food at the same temperature and at the same speed, if that is what you desire.
Food to Your Preference
As mentioned before, the top oven provides heating modes including heat sources from both the top and bottom of the food, so you are able to choose your method of cooking based on the food or dish. In addition, a total of 8 shelf positions are available for the two ovens, so it will be extremely easy to adapt to the correct cooking of certain ingredients. This also allows you to maximise the space within each oven, especially if you are needing to put one large or multiple smaller dishes in each one. This is a great point to take note of, as it allows you to make the best use of the somewhat limited capacities of each oven.
The oven includes a mixture of touch and rotary controls that give you easy access to each cooking mode and feature as well as near pinpoint accuracy for the temperature that you need for each oven. Included in the functionality is a digital timer that you can set either for alerting you after a certain amount of time, or to notify you at a specific time that you choose. The black glass finish of the oven gives it a sleek, futuristic look, and it should easily match most kitchen interiors and won't clash with any particular colours. In the end, those looking for an oven that gives you the flexibility to cook what you want will find this oven to be an excellent choice.

Loaded with Functionality
Many of the ovens that are available on the market are pretty basic appliances that are meant primarily for baking. While some ovens will include some extra functionality that adds to the oven's flexibility in use, many of these are simply secondary functions, with their overall effect being understated or not implemented well in comparison to the oven's main function. For many people, this is fine, as the primary purpose of an oven is for baking, with other cooking types often being seen as secondary. However, there are still many people who want more flexibility and functionality from their ovens, as they like to cook in a variety of ways and need an oven that allows them to do so.
The Hotpoint DD2540IX Electric Built-In Double Oven is the perfect appliance for those who are wanting plenty of functionality from their oven. The functionality included in this oven allows you to not only use it for its primary purpose of baking, but also to defrost products and act as a slow cooker. In addition, the oven comes fully equipped with all of the necessary accessories, including grill and meat pans as well as oven shelves, which will facilitate the preparation of both complex and everyday dishes.
Great for Large Kitchens
This modern double oven is most suitable for large kitchens, namely due to its size as well as the functionality included with it. It is characterized by its overall durability and provides circulation of hot air at its optimal distribution, so that cooking meat, fish, poultry, pizza and other dishes will be most satisfactory. This oven includes large capacity enclosures for both the top and bottom ovens, with the top oven having a capacity of 42 L, and the bottom a capacity of a whopping 74 L, making this oven one of the largest models we've seen. This means that those with very large cooking needs will find both the top and bottom ovens to be well-suited for their needs.
Just like with most other models, the top oven works best for cooking and grilling through convection, while the bottom oven includes a fan that provides the perfect heat circulation noted above. One thing to note about the fan is that it is quite noisy, so those who prefer their ovens to work quietly should be prepared for it. However, the oven itself is very easy to control and to use, with even beginners finding it quite simple. At the end of the day, this exception double oven from HOTPOINT should be the perfect companion for large kitchens.

Great for Large Kitchens
What is the best thing about a large kitchen? It lets you cook lots of food at once with ease, without getting cramped or running out of space for the dishes that you are making. Of course, if you're cooking lots of food at once, you need an oven that can let you do that as well as give you the ability to cook more than one thing at the same time. In this case, the Cookology CDO900BK Black Glass Electric Double Oven is exactly what you need to complement a large kitchen. This double oven with a high capacity lets you cook multiple dishes at once without taking up too much space in your kitchen.
This double oven with a built-under design gives you a wide variety of options for preparing a wide variety of dishes. The oven comes with multiple cooking modes that let you cook various dishes in various ways, while also letting you cook more than one dish at the same time. This wide range of functionality makes it the perfect choice for family dinners or parties. Whether you are cooking a festive turkey, dishes in pots, grilled dishes, or any other number of different things, all these can be prepared with this model, providing an extreme amount of flexibility in what you can cook. In fact, this oven is very similar in capabilities to the other model from the same manufacturer earlier in this review.
Energy Saving Oven
One of the most eye-catching things about this particular model is the capacity that the double ovens provide. The two ovens provide you with a combined 109 L of capacity, making this the largest model on our list. With a plentiful power output of around 6000 W, it is also one of the more powerful models here as well. Despite this large capacity and high power output, though, you will be pleased to learn that this double oven is highly energy-efficient, which helps you save on your electricity bills and your budget. Long cooking sessions won't lead to you worrying about having to pay a lot of money on your next electric bill.
As we mentioned earlier, most of the features of this oven are shared by the other Cookology model that we reviewed earlier, so you won't be missing out on any features by choosing this larger model. The top and bottom ovens provide the same capabilities, with the top oven being great for top or bottom heating or even open grilling. The 5 shelf positions give you lots of flexibility in the placement of the food items you are cooking, and they are easy to both clean and install or remove. About the only thing we should note before purchasing this model is that it might be a bit difficult to install, so those who aren't familiar with installing a new oven should probably get a professional to help you with it. Once you do have it installed, though, this capacious and energy-efficient double oven will give you plenty of cooking options for making delicious meals.

Russell Hobbs RH72DEO1001B
Flexibility for Cooking
The primary purpose of any oven is for cooking, and as such, any oven that a person has must be able to provide the necessary functionality for them to be able to cook what they want. Unfortunately, many oven models tend to be fairly limited in regard to flexibility. Many of the features that they include tend to leave out certain functions that some ovens from the past have typically had, which allowed lower tech ovens to have higher flexibility in use than some newer ones. Obviously, anyone who wants to be able to cook many different types of dishes in their ovens will need one that allows for the flexibility that they need.

What Is a Double Oven?
Virtually every home has an electric or gas-powered oven, a device that is used to bake various kinds of food. In fact, this has been the case for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Old ovens usually were simple devices that were powered by lighting wood afire within a small, enclosed and insulated space, where baking bread was very common. Nowadays, with electric and gas-powered ovens in almost every home, such types of ovens have largely been relegated to being things of the past. The modern oven has proven to be an extremely handy appliance that allows for cooking almost anything a person could want.
Where traditional ovens fail, though, is in being able to cook multiple things at once. Baking can be an extremely time-consuming process, and baking one type of food needs to be completed before you can start on something else. That is where double ovens come in. These appliances are just like traditional ovens, with the main exception that they contain two enclosed spaces for baking instead of just one. Each baking enclosure will have its own temperature settings, letting users bake two different things at the same time, even if each item requires its own temperature settings.
If you are looking for something that excels at baking bread, you might be best served by purchasing a dedicated bread maker.
What Features to Compare
Double ovens tend to be similar to regular ovens in many ways, especially in their primary purpose. However, those who aren't familiar with the nitty gritty details of ovens may not have much of an idea of what to look for. Furthermore, double ovens sometimes contain some features or characteristics that most single ovens don't have, further complicating the process of finding out which one is best. Below are the most common characteristics to look for in an electric double oven, which should help you find the best double oven for your kitchen.
Probably the first thing to be aware of with any double oven that you buy is the installation type. This basically shows the method and area of installation in the kitchen. Just like with standard single ovens, most double ovens tend to be the "built-under" type, including all of the selections in this review. This allows for easy installation in the vast majority of kitchens.
The power of an oven can go a long way towards showing just how powerful the oven is, in regards to the maximum cooking temperatures that can be maintained. Most double ovens are usually at least 4000 Watts, providing plenty of power for cooking more than one dish at the same time. If you plan on using the oven for cooking items with high temperatures, you will be best served with the most powerful oven you can buy.
The capacity of a double oven shows how much oven space exists in both the top and bottom oven compartments. In most double ovens, the bottom compartment will have a higher capacity than the top one, although this isn't always the case. Regardless, those who will be cooking large amounts of food will want to make sure that the capacity of the oven will be able to meet their needs.
Most modern double ovens will have a selection of cooking modes available for each compartment. These cooking modes will give you a choice of the type of cooking that can be done in each compartment, ranging from your standard baking to grilling, slow cooking, and even defrosting. If there are any specific cooking modes that you plan on using, you will want to make sure that your double oven supports them.
Along with the cooking modes mentioned above, double ovens will typically have some type of usability features that allow for convenient use of the device. Most of these features will include things such as integrated timers for each oven compartment, as well as interior lighting and even various grills and pans that come inside a given oven compartment. As with any of the other characteristics listed here, you will want to make sure that whichever double oven you choose comes with the Usability features that you want.
Did you know?
Cook More, Work Less
Double ovens, just by their nature, offer a huge number of benefits for those who often spend lots of time slaving away in the kitchen. However, the benefits they offer may be beyond what most people will initially think. Double ovens don't just help save time spent in the kitchen, they offer many more benefits that help make the entire cooking process much easier than ever before. If you are the proud owner of a new double oven, and are looking for ways to maximise the benefits you get from such an appliance, below are some handy ideas for helping to create some culinary masterpieces with a minimal amount of effort.
Appetizers and Main Course
Do you host dinner parties where you have multi-course meals, including appetizers? If so, this can be done easier than ever before with a double oven. You can heat a light appetizer in the top oven while the main course cooks thoroughly in the bottom one, letting you have the appetizers ready and waiting for your guests while the main course is still cooking. Heat up some potato wedges or cheese sticks quickly while your casserole bakes, giving you the quick and easy appetizers with just the right amount of time before the main course is finished.
Dinner and Dessert
Many people often don't have a proper dessert very often just because it can be a pain to cook both dinner and dessert at the same time. With a double oven, however, this can be quite easy to do. In fact, a double oven allows for some really fancy desserts, especially cooking cakes or cookies while dinner is heating up. That way, you can have a freshly made dessert as soon as you finish eating dinner!
Hamburgers and Fries
Most double ovens include grills inside of them, which lets you cook a greater variety of food. If you're in the mood for some good old fashioned fast food, but don't feel like going out, then make it yourself! With a double oven, you can cook hamburger patties and fries at the same time, without having to share the oven space for both. This in fact lets you cook larger portions of both, which is perfect for when you have some friends over to watch a match on the telly.
Having a fancy gourmet meal at home is always nice, but they can be difficult to make, especially when a dish involved multiple ingredients cooked at different temperatures. As you can already guess, a double oven makes it much easier to make such dishes in a minimal amount of time, letting you bake multiple ingredients simultaneously without having to guess about cooking times for things sharing the same oven.
Perfect Taste and Smell
One of the biggest drawbacks with having to use an oven to cook multiple things is that some ingredients tend to leave a smell or taste behind that will get into the other dishes. Cooking fish tends to be one of the biggest culprits, as the smell and even taste of fish can be left behind for whatever else is cooked afterwards. With a double oven, however, you no longer have to worry about this. You can cook fish or another similarly offending ingredient in solitude, letting your other dishes taste and smell exactly the way they are supposed to.
