Does Your Kitchen Have Two Ovens?
Mar 25 2008
Wolf Range. $$$!
I do have two ovens, but I wouldn't die without two. In fact, I'm moving in a few weeks and will then only have one. I have a normal oven, and then a smaller sized oven that sits above my stove top. I can't use it really to bake or cook most things in though - since it is so small, it heats up really fast and tends to burn things. However, it is really nice for keeping things warm and heating up frozen things.
I only have one regular oven and I hardly ever run into situations where I need a second one. For that, I do have a toaster oven to handle small jobs. My parents have double wall ovens. They rarely get used at the same time. Mostly for holiday cooking or when baking large batches of cookies & trying to save time.
My parents have two ovens and so does my sister but they only ever need the second one at Christmas time. I considered getting two ovens when we recently remodeled our kitchen but didn't think it was worth sacrificing the space for once a year use. Besides, it would have ruined the overall design.
hmm -never thought about it, but one does the trick for me ;-)
What I really want: 2 dishwashers! I've seen it done in some model homes, I hope it's a trend that grows.
I would die for two ovens! I bought a turkey roaster so I could cook Thanksgiving dinner for 14 people in my small Manhattan apartment. I made a huge ham dinner for easter (and my birthday!!) on Sunday for 10 people, and I almost used it for that, too... I should have.
Only 1, when my kids lived at home and we entertained a lot I probably could have used 2. But now I wouldn't use them as much, so 1 is fine!
I only have one - but at least it is convection or regular - which I love.
people have 2 ovens? that's something that i would never have thought would be useful unless you're in a restaurant or something.
Sadly, no I only have one..boo hoo. If I had the perfect kitchen I would have an electric one, a gas one, and a separate range with various components.
I really want two ovens!
I live in a 1-bedroom apartment and I'm going through college...so one ugly oven for right now. Ask me after I'm done with school and the answer might change.
Having two ovens is really nice. I rarely use both, but it's nice to have the 2nd one when you're entertaining for the holidays. For a normal night, it's nice to have the other oven on to use as a plate warmer or to keep food hot.
I have one that is a convection/ microwave oven. I use that all the time. We have a viking range that I have yet to use. The convection/microwave is just so easy and convenient.
I oven, 1 warming compartment and for entertaining purposes, I also have a convection oven! But I'd love to change out my stove for a professional stove! I love to cook and entertain, but I have to say, my stove/oven does a great job. When I moved in five years ago, I really thought I was going to change out the stove immediately, but it was brand new and I felt it would be "wasteful" to get a new stove at that time. I am planning on putting in a professional stove in the house I am building in Santa Fe.
I would be happy with more counter space!
I only have one but there are times that i would love two.
Just 1 oven, I'd love to have a Viking duel oven... dream, dream, dream.
The one I work in has 8. At home though only one.
I'd be shocked if a lot of readers have 2 ovens, because Sugar readers tend to be on the younger side. I don't know of a lot of apartments/condos/starter houses that come with two ovens. If you ask me this poll again in 20 years after the medical school debt is paid off and I'm living under the same roof as my husband (paying rent for 2 places in 2 super expensive cities sucks), then my answer will probably have changed to yes.
One, but two before I die is my choice too! My mom has two in her new house and she SOOO doesn't use them as much as I would!
At first I thought it was a joke.. Nope, only one, but I always managed to find enough space to accommodate my food and my flatmates'!
That's my dream - TWO OVENS!!
In my next house for sure!! Lately I've been cooking for every holiday, special occasion, etc.....I need more oven space and more cooktop.
