Our lab test results will tell you which ovens:

  • are the best overall performers
  • are best at roasting, grilling, multi-shelf cooking and low-temperature cooking
  • are easiest to use
  • are easiest to clean (including which ones come with self-cleaning functions).

Our interactive comparison tool will tell you the real internal dimensions of the ovens, not just what's on the box; lay out their features such as pyrolytic and catalytic cleaning, smokeless grill trays, telescopic runners and steam cooking; and run the numbers to show you how much each model will cost to run. And our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

Catalytic liners
Expand to view more details.

Often referred to as 'self-cleaning' surfaces, catalytic liners work by absorbing fat splatters. You need to regularly heat the oven to 250°C for an hour to burn off the splatters and wipe them with a damp cloth when cool.

Pyrolytic function
Expand to view more details.

True self-cleaning ovens are pyrolytic. Set on the cleaning mode, the oven locks itself and heats up to around 500°C, converting food residues into ash, which you wipe away when it cools.

Steam function

Injects bursts of steam during cooking.
