The Best Built-Under Double Ovens – Compact Dual Cooking

The Best Built-Under Double Ovens - Compact Dual Cooking

Two ovens are better than one. Especially when you have friends and family over with big appetites. Built-under double ovens let you satisfy hungry guests by cooking two different dishes at the same time.

Thanks to its separate and independently-controllable cooking areas, you won’t have to wait to finish cooking one dish before starting another. That means you can be cooking your main dish while grilling up some tasty treats in the second oven.

The compact built-under design also saves a surprising amount of kitchen space. Perfect for those small galley kitchens or low ceiling spaces that can’t fit tall cabinets.

In this post, I’m sharing my top picks for the best built-under double oven, including a quick run-down of their key features and benefits.

Let’s get started!

What’s The Difference Between Built-In and Built-Under Double Ovens?

Before we get into the best ovens, I wanted to quickly explain the difference between a built-in and a built-under double oven. It’s something that can often cause confusion and I’ve seen other websites get wrong, which really doesn’t help.

Built-In Double Oven

Built-in Double Oven Size

Oven Size: 90cm high x 60cm wide x 55-58cm deep
Overall Capacity: 85-135L


Built-in double ovens must be installed in a tower oven housing. This can be in a midi height, tall, or extra tall unit. They are too tall to be installed under the countertop.

Built-Under Double Oven

Built-Under Double Oven Size

Oven Size: 70cm High x 60cm Wide x 55-58cm Deep.
Overall Capacity:
 70-100L

Built-under double ovens are smaller than a built-in double oven so they fit under standard kitchen countertops.

As the average kitchen countertop is 87cm from the floor to the underside of the countertop, built-under double ovens are more compact. If you’re looking for the biggest capacity, this may not be the right choice for you.

However, if you can’t fit (or don’t want) a tall oven housing cabinet in your kitchen then a built-under double oven is a great option.

Remember, this post is about the best built-under double ovens.
