Time for a New Oven?
If your oven is working overtime, now may be an ideal time to consider an upgrade. New technologies offer options for everyone -- and every budget.
Single wall ovens start at about $450, and double wall ovens are priced from $900 for the most basic models. Freestanding ranges can be found for as low as $260.
“While spending more doesn’t necessarily guarantee better performance, you will get higher end features such as preprogrammed cooking options and heavy-duty construction on parts like door handles,” Reid says. “Inexpensive ovens work fine, but investing a little more may give you features that make your time in the kitchen more efficient.”
