Help in deciding on wall oven or a range for baking

strawberryshortcakesNovember 11, 2012

We are building a new house. I am an avid baker and would like suggestions on the best ovens for baking. I am open to double wall ovens or a professional range. I have jenn air double ovens and HATE them. I have had them 3 years and have had them calibrated 3 times and they still dont heat evenly or at the right temp. Does anyone who is an avid baker have an oven they love and would highly recommend? Thanks for your help.

I have an Electrolux wall oven and Wolf DF range. I love them both. They bake evenly and I like the different modes that enable you to bring heat from the top and bottom. Both utilize convection elements beneficial when the ovens are full. The Wolf has dual fans/elements.

I have to second the Wolf DF.

I use my 30" Kenmore Elite wall oven more than my Wolf. When I was buying, though, I researched the heck out of the Wolf, and learned that so many avid bakers loved their Wolf DF ranges.

(The Kenmore Elite suits my purposes well, but I do more roasting/broiling than baking.)

I bake a lot and love my Electrolux Wave Touch wall oven. It bakes very evenly even when I have the whole oven fully loaded with multiple pans on 3 racke. That's the most important issue for me.

Other things I like are the bread proofing mode, the probe which you can use with meats to tell internal temperatures, the timer. It warms quickly and is quiet and efficient. So far I've had it about 7 months and have no complaints.
