Updated April 20, 2023

The benefits of a double oven range are undeniable. Whether you cook large meals for your family or just want to roast a chicken and bake a cake at the same time, a dual oven range has all the space you need. Currently, our top pick is the Whirlpool WGE745C0FS (available at Best Buy for $1,799.99) , which marries great cooking performance with a host of impressive features.

Our appliance experts have experience with ovens of all types. So we’ve got your back if you're in the market to double your baking, roasting, and broiling capacity.

The Whirlpool WGE745C0FS is the best electric range we've tested.

The Whirlpool WGE745C0FS double oven electric range is a knockout across the board. It passed every test we threw at it with flying colors, from boiling water to baking pizza.

Its ability to multitask sets it apart from other ranges. In particular, you can bake two dishes at different temperatures simultaneously and fit at least four pots on the cooktop at once. This range is chock-full of features, including Frozen Bake, Rapid Preheat, and Sabbath Mode.

You won't find an air fry setting, but the True Convection cooking mode will produce the same deliciously crispy results. With white, black, and a stainless steel finish available, it can match most kitchens. Regardless of the finish, we love the look of this range's ultra-sleek smooth cooktop.

The only small downside we could find to this range was the uneven doneness of cookies when we tested True Convection mode in the bottom oven. (The feature doesn't exist for the top oven.) Still, this is the best electric range we’ve tested.

Effective burners

Large oven capacity and spacious cooktop

Bakes evenly across a single tray

Lower oven doesn't bake cookies evenly between two trays

The GE Profile PS960YPFS is our pick for best upgrade.

Who wouldn't love the idea of baking chicken and a cake simultaneously? Customers seem to love this double oven range for its glass ceramic cooktop and convenient, high-quality features. You can customize the heating-element range to fit your pans, as well as heat up two elements together for larger pans like griddles.

As for the ovens, the convection element lets heat move around efficiently, cooking your food evenly throughout. This double oven range even comes with a temperature probe, so you’ll know exactly when your food is done. Plus, the entire oven range can be controlled with an easy finger swipe on the touch control or via smartphone using Wi-Fi.

Easy to use and clean

None that we could find

This double oven range includes KitchenAid's Even-Heat True Convection tech, which allows your oven to heat up evenly for baking, broiling, and whatever else you want to use it for. And it has a pretty large oven capacity for fitting large cookie sheets, pots, and pans.

As for the surface, it comes with five fast-heating elements. Some reviewers find the top surface difficult to clean, but are pleased with how fast the oven heats up and how easy it is to operate once you get used to it.

Cooktop is hard to clean

This double oven electric range from Maytag offers all the versatility and many of the luxury features you’d want in your dream kitchen. It's got 2.5 cubic feet of upper oven capacity on top, with an additional 4.2 cubic feet of space in the bottom oven.

It comes with a variety of heating elements—including a 10-inch "Power Element" for maximum control, quick heat, and precision—and True Convection for a faster, more even convection bake. And the stainless steel is fingerprint resistant, so you know it's going to look great in your home. It's also engineered and manufactured right here in the U.S.

Many reviewers feel more confident buying from manufacturers like Maytag and Whirlpool because the availability of replacement parts is often better. But Maytag itself actually offers a 10-year limited parts warranty on this freestanding double oven.

Lacks modern smart features

Many of our favorite appliances have come from Samsung in recent years. Some of the best ranges we’ve tested are now discontinued, but Samsung is still offering great newer models. So you can still upgrade with a brand you know and trust.

This freestanding range comes with an electric range, a nonstick griddle, an air-fry setting that requires no preheating, and the Flex Duo design from which it gets its name. You can either use the full 6.3 cubic feet of oven space for a single task or split it into two smaller ovens roughly equal in size. (Each half has its own separate temperature control.)

It's got a convenient storage drawer for bakeware and accessories, built-in voice commands courtesy of the Bixby smart assistant, self-cleaning features, and a Powerful Convection+ fan for quick, even cooking.

Lacks a True Convection element

Rather than a single oven, the ranges in this guide have two separate compartments you can control independently. You can cook a couple dishes at the same time, at separate temps, or just the oven compartment that's most appropriate for what you’re making.

They're ideal for cooks who typically have to prepare multiple dishes at once, or cooks who make smaller meals that don't always require large oven space. Double oven ranges are also ideal for preparing large meals of multiple dishes that center around a turkey, roast, or long-cooking dish. You can set that in the larger section for a long, slow roast, and still have oven space to cook everything else at a different temperature.

One of the main ways to differentiate ranges is by their fuel type: gas, electric, dual-fuel, and induction.

Gas — Lower cooktop temperatures, faster water boiling than electric ranges, potential for uneven cooking/baking because of central flame location

Electric — Higher cooktop temperatures, slower water boiling compared to gas and induction, more even cooking/baking because of heat distribution over coil

Dual-fuel — Gas cooktop with an electric oven, which will give you faster water boiling times than an electric stove, but more even cooking/baking than a gas oven because of heat distribution over coil

Induction — Super faster water boiling, very high and low cooktop temperatures, requires induction-safe cookware, may require recipe modification

Depending on your cooking and baking priorities, one of these fuel types might be more appealing than the rest. One more thing to consider: dual-fuel and induction ranges can be more expensive than traditional gas and electric ranges, depending on the features and manufacturer.

True convection is a setting that includes installing an extra heating element and a fan in the oven. By adding a heating unit and fan that circulate the hot air, True Convection makes sure cookies or cakes on different racks will bake at the same rate. (As opposed to the cookies near the bottom heat source cooking faster than the rest.)

If you don't see mention of "True Convection" or "European Convection," but do see the word convection in a range's specs, it means that the unit lacks an additional heating element. But it means it does have a fan to circulate the hot air. While you don't get the full baking and cooking effect that you would with True Convection, the added heat circulation can cook or bake food more evenly than it would without a fan.

There are also ranges out there that do not offer convection options at all. These ovens aren't bad, it will just take more time to cook and bake food all the way through. If you're a frequent baker or cook, convection can be a great time saver—but your dinners won't suffer unduly without it.

In a nutshell, slide-in ranges are meant to sit flush with your countertops, while freestanding ranges can be placed anywhere there is a compatible electrical outlet. Freestanding ranges are finished on the sides, which may be exposed if they're not placed between cabinets. Slide-in ranges, however, may not have finished sides because they're meant to be hidden.

Additionally, since slide-in ranges sit flush with your countertop, they're a bit easier to clean because they do not have a large lip around the edge. Freestanding ranges often have larger lips around the edge of the cooktop to corral any crumbs that would otherwise decorate your floor. Freestanding ranges usually have a back-mounted control panel for the same reason.

While freestanding ranges will do fine in a slide-in arrangement, the reverse is less true. If your current cooking setup has the range sitting in a cabinet or countertop cutout, we recommend replacing that range with another slide-in range. Conversely, if your range stands alone in your kitchen, we'd recommend replacing it with another freestanding range to cut down on food debris spilling everywhere.

Most freestanding ranges have back-mounted controls, but some slide-in ranges do as well. Each has its pros and cons; on the one hand, having back-mounted controls means you may have to reach over hot food to adjust the oven temperature. The controls are also far enough away that you would have difficulty hitting something on the control panel by accident.

On the other hand, front-mounted controls are easier to reach, but that convenience can turn against you if you brush up against a knob accidentally. Consider the ergonomics of using the range when it comes to picking a front- or back-mounted control panel.

Depending on how much time you spend in the kitchen, it might be worth it to investigate in some extra options for your range. When it comes to the cooktop, anything above the standard four-burner setup is a bonus. Some ranges can have five, or even six burners. However, the more burners a range has, the more difficult it becomes to fit large pieces of cookware, such as a spaghetti pot and a frying pan, on their respective burners at the same time.

Sometimes, those extra burners are specialty burners are designed to accommodate special cookware such as a griddle or a wok; other burners are bridge burners that are meant to keep food warm without continuing to cook it.

Another possibility is to have a dual-ring burner, or a burner that includes a stronger heat source wrapped around a weaker heat source. That way, on a single burner, you can choose to use just the smaller heat source for lower temperatures, but you can add the stronger heat source if you need higher temperatures.

As for extra oven features, they can include everything from accessories like special oven racks or a temperature probe to special cooking features like the aforementioned convection settings, fast preheat (which expedites the preheating process), bread proofing (where the oven settings are customized to activate yeast and make bread rise), steam cooking (where you pour water into a reservoir and gently cook something with the resulting steam), air fry mode (where you can expeditiously fry frozen and fresh foods, similar to an air fryer) and many, many more options.
