What to consider when choosing
The rating helps to find out the features of different models and compare them. But it is not enough to understand which oven is better to buy and what needs to be considered when buying?
It is important to pay attention to the following characteristics:
one. Dimensions (edit)… Important when installing an oven in a kitchen set. …
2. Camera functionality… With the same basic parameters, each oven can work differently. On some, it is more convenient to cook different dishes of small volumes together, and on others a large piece of meat or rolls. Consider the size of your family.
3. Energy efficiency… Some companies are positioning their electric ovens as ultra-economical with class AA and even AAA. But you will not notice a big difference in electricity consumption (in monetary terms).
four. Power… The higher it is, the better for quick frying. Regardless of its indicator, under the same operating conditions and settings, all electric ovens have approximately the same energy consumption and efficiency. But when you need to cook a lot of food and very quickly – a conventional electric oven 1 – 1.5 kW will not cope. But with a 3 kW analogue, it will be easier to do this.
five. Useful options… For example, smartphone control or automatic cooking programs.
By the way, if you do not like frying, but bake and stick to a healthy diet, a steamer will certainly be useful for you – we have just compiled a selection of optimal models. And as a snack, a smoothie is perfect: it can be prepared in a stationary blender.
