Best double built-in oven

  • 81%
    £1398.00

    It's not the newest, but this double oven is certainly one of the best we've ever come across. It has two accurate ovens that are super-speedy to heat up, plus two outstanding grills. On top of this, the ovens are spacious and clean themselves. It ticks all the right boxes.

Excellent runner-up

  • 78%
    £689.00

    If the price of our top-scoring double oven makes your eyes water, this one is a splendid lower-cost alternative and an enduring Best Buy. Both of its ovens stick closely to the correct temperature, and we made some outstanding shortbread in the larger multifunction oven. It's easy to use, and both grills are better than average.

Best double built-under

  • 78%
    £649.00

    This built-under oven has two ovens and two grills that are all excellent. The ovens are quick to heat up and accurate, and we made lovely shortbread and a well-risen sponge cake in the larger one. A pair of telescopic runners is useful for moving hot, heavy dishes out of the oven.

Best cheap built-in

  • 71%
    £379.00

    This spacious budget model has two accurate ovens, and the grill in the top compartment is pretty good, too. It's also easy to clean and misses out on being a Best Buy by only a whisker.

Best cheap built-under

  • 73%
    £450.00

    The main fan oven reaches the correct temperature, cooks very evenly, and heats consistently - so you shouldn't have any problems getting your sponges to rise perfectly. The smaller top oven is accurate, too. It's only the mediocre grill that stops this oven from being a Best Buy.

How to choose the best double oven

Modern kitchen with built-under oven

Built-in vs built-under double ovens

As their name suggests, built-in ovens are designed to be integrated into your kitchen units, for a seamless look. Full-sized double built-in ovens are large and do not fit under a counter – opt for this type only if you have the space for a full height column.  

Built-under ovens are designed to fit in beneath your kitchen work surface, so are better for kitchens with limited space. Inevitably you get less cooking room in each oven – for example, you may not be able to fit in something as large as a turkey in either – so it's worth making sure that it will definitely be enough for you.

There are fewer built-under models to choose from. Visit our built-in oven reviews and filter by 'double electric built-under' or 'double gas built-under' to see which ones have done well in our tests.
