Freestanding Vs. Built-In Oven – What’s Best for My Kitchen?

Freestanding Vs. Built-In Oven - What's Best for My Kitchen?


Choosing the best oven for your kitchen depends on your specific needs, kitchen space, and cooking habits. While some people need extra space for the oven, others do not. Here’s what to look for in both options. And remember, there’s no right answer.

There are several drawbacks to freestanding electric ovens. First, built-in models integrate less seamlessly into the kitchen. Second, cleaning them is a hassle. Crusts and liquids get caught in the crack between the oven and the cabinet, making it difficult to get rid of them. Third, if you want to clean up only some of the oven area, you should pull the oven away from the wall.

Freestanding ovens can take up unnecessary space, particularly if you have a small kitchen. However, they can look beautiful in larger kitchens. Furthermore, built-in ovens do not have a cooktop, so you’ll need extra space on your counter.

There are many pros and cons to both built-in and freestanding ovens for kitchens. While built-in ovens provide more space, freestanding ones look more traditional. However, a freestanding oven can be difficult to clean because it can get stuck in the bench space. This is why you should consider a built-in oven if you have limited space in your kitchen.

Another disadvantage of a freestanding oven is that it cannot be fitted to the other furniture in your kitchen. This can make cleaning hard, as liquids and crumbs can fall between the cabinets. You may also have to remove the oven from the wall to clean it.

One of the biggest differences between freestanding and built-in ovens is the installation process. The installation process varies greatly depending on your region and zip code. If you are looking for free estimates from oven installation companies, it is helpful to indicate your location when requesting one.

The freestanding option is the most affordable and popular oven style. It costs about DH 500 to DH 1,600. The benefits of freestanding ovens are that they are easily moved to different locations and spaces. In contrast, wall ovens cost between DH 600 and DH 4,700. They are more flexible than freestanding ovens and offer plenty of cooking space. You don’t have to bend over to reach the oven to cook dinner.
