Please make sure you note the expected delivery times before placing your order to avoid disappointment.


Integrated ovens, also called built-in ovens, are appliances that are installed directly into a cavity in your kitchen units, creating a seamless and streamlined look to your kitchen and saving floor space.

This guide is here to help you think about what you want to get out of a new oven, whilst explaining their functions without using jargon.


Product Size

Built in ovens are all around 600mm in width, but vary in height.

Single ovens are around 600mm tall whereas double ovens range between 700mm and 900mm. Please bear in mind that these are approximate measurements and individual appliances will vary from the measurements above.

All of the ovens available at Appliance Direct are labelled with full dimensions of height, width and depth so you can be sure your appliance will fit where you want it to when you get it home.


Single, Double or Twin Cavity?

When it comes to choosing the right oven, you could be left with more questions than when you started, but to make it simpler we have outlined the key benefits of each type below.

Single ovens - these ovens only have a single cavity for you to work with. They can be put under your counter or in a tall housing unit.

Double ovens - these ovens offer you the most flexibility as you have two ovens to work with simultaneously. Double ovens can either be built in to tall housing or built under your counter top. It's important to know which type you need. 

Twin cavity ovens - these ovens offer a single oven cavity and a separate grill cavity. You can brown an apple crumble and roast a chicken at the same time! Like double ovens, twin cavity ovens can either be built in to tall housing or built under your counter top. It's important to know which type you need. 


Conventional, Fan or Multifunction?

There are three different types of oven, and not everybody knows the difference between them. We've outlined the main functionsof each to help you choose the right type of oven for your cooking style.

Conventional ovens - Conventional ovens let you cook with slightly different heat zones depending on where the food is within the cavity. Hot air rises to the top of the oven meaning you can cook at different temperatures simultaneously - making them ideal for traditional cooking and baking.

Fan ovens - Fan ovens cook with a uniform temperature no matter where you position your food within them. A rotating fan by the heat source evenly distributes heat throughout the cavity, helping to reduce preheating times and lower overall cooking times by up to 30%.

Multifunction ovens - Multifunction ovens combine a host of different settings with additional heating controls that give you greater versatility compared to conventional and fan ovens. This makes them the most adaptable ovens on the market.


Special Features

Fan oven - Some electric ovens come with a fan to distribute the heat evenly. With double ovens, one usually has a fan and the other is conventionally heated by upper and lower heating elements.

Multifunction oven - This type of oven allows you to cook with a variety of heat sources independently or in combination, such as the grill and fan together.

Existing Gas and/or Electric Supplies

Please check that your current gas and/or electrc supplies are within 1.5 metres of the location you intend to have your appliance installed.

If we are installing your appliance for you we can provide up to 1.5 metres of gas hose and/or electric cable to connect your new appliance to your existing supplies. Gas appliances do not come with the gas hose or and electrical models which require hardwiring do not come with the wire.

Please be aware that gas models also require a 13A electrical supply.


Before buying a new oven it's important to take into consideration whether you need a hardwired or plug in model. Some ovens require more power than others.

If you have a 13A plug socket then you need to purchase a model with a 13A plug connection.

If you have a 32A wall socket then you may purchase a hardwired model or you may hardwire a 13A plug in model.

If you're unsure what type of connection you have please refer to our diagram.

Please be aware that gas models also require a 13A electrical supply.
