Double Oven vs Single + Speed ??

mikie | Aug 11, 2011 06:04 AM

The cabinet maker is going to start in a couple of weeks and before he does I'd like to get some opinions on what you think about double ovens and the new speed ovens with convection/microwave capability. Here's the situation: Currently we have a single 27" oven with a microwave above it, my wife hates the smallish oven so we are going to 30". Initally, she insisted on double ovens, that's been her dream for years, she loves to do it up big for Thanksgiving and Christmas, a lot of food and pies. The kitchen designer we worked with for awhile po poed the double oven and told us he hadn't installed a double oven in years. It got my wife thinking, and now she is leaning towards the single convection oven with a "speed" oven above. Once the cabinet is made, there is no turning back. We only use a microwave to defrost and reheat some items, but we still probably need one. I'm not comfortable that in the end, she will be happy with the smallish speed oven, even though she will have the larger 30" oven as the main cooking device. It seems like I still see a lot of double ovens in the Kitchen Design mags. Your thoughts and comments are appreciated.

At this point we are looking at Kitchenaid KEBS107SSS and KBHS109SSS, I believe these are the correct model numbers.
