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, Smeg, Fisher & Paykel, Electrolux and Miele to help you find the best performers on the market.

  • Not sure where to start? Our oven buying guide explains your options.
  • Use our wall oven buying guide to know what features to look for.
  • Looking for an oven and cooktop combination instead? See our reviews for freestanding ovens
  • Double ovens aren't included here and we don't have a current review for them, but see our double ovens buying guide for general information. 
  • To understand our expert testing process, read about how we test.
  • Since well over 85% of wall ovens are for electric ovens we currently don't review gas ovens.

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.

Performance score

Expand to view more details.

Our home economist cooks a range of meals to test the oven's ability to perform over a range of temperatures, times and functions. The performance score accounts for 60% of the overall score.

Roasting score

Expand to view more details.

We roast a chicken to assess baking a non-uniform food at moderate to high temperature over a long period while retaining moisture and crisping the skin.

Ease of use score

Expand to view more details.

Our home economist checks how easy the controls are to use, the clarity of the labels, using the grill and oven shelves, and cleaning the inside and outside of the oven. The ease of use score accounts for 40% of the overall score.

Measured internal baking volume (L)

Expand to view more details.

The internal baking volume is calculated from measurements of the lowest shelf of the oven or baking tray (if supplied with one) to the grill element, side-wall to side-wall, and the rear-wall to the door.

Features

Self-cleaning surfaces (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.

Self-cleaning function (pyrolytic)

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

Expand to view more details.

Injects bursts of steam during cooking.

Telescopic runners

Expand to view more details.

Telescopic runners allow you to smoothly pull the oven racks and trays all the way out of the oven while keeping the shelf stable. They make loading, unloading and checking food while cooking much easier. 

Steam cleaning

Expand to view more details.

Allows you to clean your oven by placing water inside and activating a steam clean function.
