Our Top 4 Built In Ovens For A Perfect Bake.

We often discuss appliances (funny that!) and eat cake at Appliance House! With this in mind we thought an artcle dedicated to a selection of the best ovens for a delicious bake seemed like a good idea. Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of delicious homebaked cakes appearing in our office. Birthday celebrations, a Macmillian coffee morning and the uncontrolable urge to bake after watching the Great British Bake Off are the main culprits for the Appliance House cake fest! After much deliberation, and plenty of cake eating, we finally picked four fantastic ovens that are worthy of a place in any bakers kitchen!

If you love to bake then you must check out our Top 4 Built In Ovens For A Perfect Bake. Our selection includes built in ovens that cater for every budget.

AEG, KSK782220M SteamBoost Steam Oven.AEG KSK782220M

Create flavoursome food in this superb 43 litre SteamBoost fan oven from AEG, complete with a FullSteam function, electronic touch controls and food probe.

There is a unique interval steam function which, as the name suggests, alternates between steam and fan cooking with 25% steam and 75% hot air. The hot air convection system distributes air evenly around the cavity to ensure food is baked evenly whilst browning and crisping to perfection. Add steam to the mix and the final results are hard to beat! Cooking with steam locks in flavour and moisture to create juicy succulent dishes and perfectly baked desserts.

The KSK782220M AEG Steam Oven is the ideal oven for those who enjoy baking. Not only does the steam help to create moist, light sponges and superb homemade bread but it also comes with an extra large baking tray that is 20% larger than a standard sized baking tray. This super-size tray is perfect for baking larger batches of baked goods such as biscuits and meringue.AEG XL Baking Tray

Re-heating pies and pastries can be done with ease too using the base heat function. This function allows you to heat from the bottom element only which means the bottom of the pie will remain nice and crisp. This setting is also super for warming plates.

If you often bake a little extra and freeze it for another day, defrosting delicate items such a cream cakes can be done hygienically, inside this oven. The fan controlled defrosting programme slowly circulates room temperature air around the food, this speeds up the defrosting process by up to 50% meaning you’ll have time to serve home-baked treats with a fresh cuppa during those impromptu visits from friends and family!

You’ll be pleased to hear this oven also features a steam self cleaning system and an anti-finger print coating so keeping this AEG built in oven clean couldn’t be easier!

Prepare delicious dishes with this Whirlpool Fusion oven, featuring 6th Sense technology, a touch screen interface and a huge 75 litre capacity. With 5 different smooth motion, sliding shelf positions to choose from and the clever Cook 3 function there is plenty of room to bake succulent savoury and sweet dishes for all the family.

Cook 3 allows you to cook three separate dishes together without the risk of aromas mixing and spoiling the flavours of the individual dishes. This means you can have your favourite dessert, a freshly prepared savoury pie plus a tray of oven roasted veg cooking together, giving you time to relax whilst the oven bakes it all to perfection using intuitive 6th sense technology!Whirlpool AKZM694 6th Sense Oven

Creating moist, golden sponge that springs to the touch and perfectly crisp cookies with chewy middles is easy with the AKZM694/IX Whilrpool Oven. Whirlpool have developed 6th Sense Technology which elevates the user experience and cooking performance to another level! 6th Sense technology automatically adjusts the temperature, time and power levels during the cooking process for outstanding results with each use.

Opening the door during baking to take a peek and check the progress of your sweet treat, for some, is too hard to resist. The door features soft close hinges. These specialsit hinges enable the door to shut with a soft and silent motion which prevents excessive amounts of cold air sweeping into the cavity. This slow-motion closing means the internal temperature is minimally affected and souffles won’t sink due to a sudden slam of the door! It is, however, always best to avoid opening the door during cooking if you can!
