Miele’s MasterChef technology offers over 100 programs, and its MasterChef plus program has a fully functional option to choose from to create 15 different types of bread. Unlike most ovens, Miele is simple to operate as well.

BlueStar BSDEWO30ECSDDDV2 - $7,295
BlueStar does not make a wall double oven. However, you can customize a wall oven with one electric and one gas oven. People gravitate to electric most times, but gas is a moist heat for better roasting and their infrared broiler is the hottest and the best to sear.
Electric - $4,875
- Electric oven which is better for baking
- Integrated baking stone with precise temperature control
- Knob combine with touch screen and 12 baking modes
- Temperature probe
Gas - $4,095

French doors are convenient as well because you do not have to lift a heavy turkey over an oven door.
The BlueStar ovens are extremely customizable with 750 colors. The disadvantage is basic controls with no interactive functionality.
This oven is tailored for the experienced home chef with a preference for roasting.

Smart Wall Oven Technology
Smart ovens take the guesswork out of cooking, giving you programs that tell you what to do, from start to finish. A few years ago, smart ovens just calculated time and temperature based on your food type.
You would simply input what you were cooking, the level of doneness, and the oven would figures out the rest for you.
In 2018, wall oven Wi-Fi connectivity was available on from brands like Jenn-Air, Samsung, and Dacor. Presently, you can control these ovens remotely from an app on your phone but with limited functionality.
Jenn-Air is probably the most advanced allowing you to set basic functions and check your timer as well as oven temperature.
Jenn-Air is the also the first Alexa-enabled wall oven. Jenn-Air’s vision in connection with Amazon’s Home Connectivity is for you to one day press lasagna on your oven, the oven will scan the refrigerator for the ingredients to alert you what you still need, and then pre-program the correct cycle on your dishwasher.

Should You Buy a Smart Wall Oven?
Smart technology is the future of appliances without question.
Presently, the Apps are slow when they work, and the functionality is limited. Then there are compatibility issues. It is our recommendation to buy on other features, not just for smart technology...yet.
Wall Oven Reliability
In 2018, we had 34,687 service calls. We measure reliability by the number of our service calls divided by sales within the first year of the appliance.
|Service Qty||Shipped Qty||Service Ratio|
|Fisher & Paykel||0||9||0.00 %|
|Samsung Chef Collection||0||2||0.00 %|
|LG Electronics||0||1||0.00 %|
|Bosch Appliances||53||341||15.54 %|
|Bosch - Benchmark||28||134||20.90 %|
|Grand Total||402||2185||18.40 %|
Miele, Bosch, and Wolf would be amongst the most reliable on the high end.
Wall ovens have a repair rate of 18.40% within the first year or roughly 5% more than the average appliance.
Then again, most double ovens can be considered 2 appliances with far more complicated controls than any other appliance
That will be a problem for you. Wall ovens have smart controls, yet far few people around to fix these incredibly complex units
Before you buy, you need to know who will fix your new appliances. Extended warranties will not help you either unless they are backed by an actual service department
Most warranties are not backed by much of anything.
Which Wall Oven Should You Buy?
You are paying more for better functionality. Miele, Wolf, and Jenn-Air will figure out time and temperature for you versus you figuring it out for yourself.
Miele has the additional steam if you like to bake bread. Fisher & Paykel has a pastry only mode. BlueStar is a great oven for broiling and roasting.
Bosch has a lower priced wall oven and has reasonably priced appliances with discounts to finish the suite.
For builders and people looking to flip a home quickly, Frigidaire, Whirlpool, and GE have less expensive products under $2,500 without convection or self-cleaning options.
With wall ovens, you have way more feature and price differentiation than any other product. The best wall oven for you should be based on how you cook.
