A good oven is an essential purchase you want to get right the first time. Our experts lab test and review wall ovens from leading brands like Bosch, Electrolux, Fisher & Paykel, Miele and Smeg to help you find the best performers on the market.

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 tells you the real internal dimensions of the oven, not just what's on the box, and it lists features such as pyrolytic and catalytic cleaning, smokeless grill trays, telescopic runners and steam cooking. We've also crunched the numbers to show you how much each model will cost to run. Our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

Note: We don't test gas ovens as this is only a very small part of the market.

    Measured internal baking volume (L)
