Seeing double in Australian kitchens

Posted: Wednesday, August 15, 2018

There is an ever-increasing passion for home cooking in Australian kitchens and as a result there has been a dramatic increase in the number of double ovens appearing in stores around the country. We’re lucky in Australia, to have an abundance of space, and that is evident in the design of the average Australian kitchen, which tends to be far larger than those in Europe and the UK, but if you’re thinking about investing in a double oven for your kitchen there are some things you need to consider.

Are you getting the real deal?

Some appliance suppliers are advertising double ovens that are actually just poor imitations and don’t include two separate ovens. Make sure you’re getting a genuine double oven that offers static baking, fan baking and a separate grill in both oven chambers.

A double oven like the Smeg DOSPA38X is a good example of the kind of features you will see in a genuine double oven. It offers eight static and fan cooking functions in the main 79 litre cooking chamber, and an additional four in the second 41 litre chamber. The Smeg also has a recessed floor in the auxiliary oven perfect for a pizza stone.

Double oven = double the cleaning?

If you’re thinking of getting a double oven, it’s a good idea to think about getting one that you don’t have to clean! The DOSPA38X features two pyrolytic cleaning modes one for a lightly soiled oven, and one for more heavy duty cleaning. The ‘lightly soiled’ cleaning mode will run for 90 minutes with an internal temperature of 500°C, turning any food residue to a fine ash that can be wiped down with a damp cloth.
