A "different" question about oven size
There have been several discussions about whether or not one needs a large oven. And yes, I know that one can fit a 20 lbs turkey in a Gaggenau 24" regular (not steam) convection oven and that BlueStar 24" range has a very spacious oven. I am not at all obsessed with large ovens, quite the opposite, actually. I think they take too long to heat up and may be "wasteful" for a family of three.
I have a steam-oven that I intend to use most of the time. I don't even *need* a big oven as I'd rather get a speed-oven and get rid of the countertop MW.
However, having a regular size oven is pretty much a "must" for resale, so I planned for one in my tall oven cabinet.
I am considering a 30" oven and a 27" oven. I am going to have a face panel made for either, so looks are not an issue.
The heights are ~28" and ~22" and the capacity 4.4 cu. ft. and 3.0 cu.ft., respectively. The price difference is NOT a consideration.
I'll use it only occasionally, like for parties and if I need to make a large butch of cookies for some reason (I hardly ever make cookies, btw). And I never ever roast a whole turkey and do not intend to b/c I think a turkey breast is pretty sufficient plus requires no carving and no dealing with left-overs for days to come. Wink-wink.
The 30" model will eliminate the resale concerns as it is a 'standard" size. However, if I go with the 27" one, I can have another 30" drawer underneath - and I could really use another drawer!
Do you think it could be a deal-breaker if I suddenly have to sell the house (which is not likely but could happen)?
The difference of 1.4 cu. ft. is pretty substantial, e.g., the entire speed oven is only 1.2 cu. ft. But will I miss that capacity? Especially if I get a speed oven?
