You are researching wall ovens and you probably have an abundance of options. There are probably 40 wall ovens at Yale (maybe more including the working kitchens). They differ in configuration with different convection systems, different doors, and different technology. We are on the cusp of a new technology for our appliances including our wall ovens.
Smart ovens take the guesswork out of cooking, giving you programs that tell you what to do, from start to finish.
For instance, when cooking a prime rib in the Wolf M series' gourmet program it will tell you where to insert the meat probe, what rack to cook on, with no pre-heat required, the oven will incorporate rest time, and also inform you when the roast is done.
Miele’s master chef technology offers over 100 programs and its Master chef plus program has fully functional option to choose from to create 15 different types of bread.
Jenn-Air is probably the most advanced allowing you to set basic functions through an app on your phone like when its preheated and the remaining cycle time.
Unfortunately, there is no one best wall oven, technology and all, so we will show you the best four popular double wall ovens in the industry and their unique features.
We will look at the five best currently offered and a brief history of the wall oven.
Best Double Wall Ovens
The M series offers three distinctive styles, professional, contemporary, and transitional, however, all of them offer the same features.

(this model has the option for stainless door)

- The rear oven is arched for more usable space and has two corner column fans with vertical heating elements that provide a perfect heat flow.
- The Gourmet Feature offers a menu of almost 50 preset controls that automatically control the cooking.
- Large oven capacity of 5.1 cubic feet
- Color touchscreen for easy navigation
The M series ovens not only offer a variety of looks to match any style kitchen but also makes cooking easy and fun. Their Gourmet setting is foolproof making meals quick and easy from prime rib to lasagna to apple pie.
It will walk you through each step even telling you what rack to place the food on for best results. The arch in the rear of the oven allows more oven capacity for larger roasts or accommodating multiple dishes at the same time.
Convection is useful for almost any type of cooking. By using convection, you can reduce your cooking time while ensuring that your entire meal is exposed to the same heat, cooking it evenly.
Wolf has made the largest strides in advanced convection technology by implementing corner column blowers. The blowers offer a more powerful than fans and with more even heat, top to bottom and side to side while maximizing usable space in your oven.
- Master chef programs offers over 100 food types to cook to perfection
- Wireless meat probe
- Twin power fans provide optimum and even distribution of hot air
- Soft open and soft close door
- Touch controls
- 15 different types of bread recipes
Miele has a very distinctive look it's clean and modern and extremely dependable. Miele is an engineered and manufactured in the same factory creating an amazing quality control. Their MasterChef is like the Wolf Gourmet; however, it has a significantly larger library of recipes and extensive bread baking options.
The steam assist (moisture plus) is fantastic for creating moister roasts and helping vegetables retain their texture and creating a crispy crust and soft interior on bread.
BSDEWO30ECSDDDV2 - $7,299
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 moister heat for better roasting.
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
- A gas oven which is better for people who prefer to cook rather than bake.
- Commercial grade infrared broiler great for searing
- True European convection for a very even moist heat
- Both Gas and Electric
- French door design
- Wide to fit a commercial cookie sheet
- 750+ ways to customize color and trim
- 100% made in the USA
BlueStar ovens are great for the chefs who love to bake in the electric oven with its wide commercial size opening or who love roast meats in the gas oven. The gas heat has more moisture than electric and the infrared broiler on the gas oven is great for searing at 1850 degrees.
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. The oven is tailored for the experienced home chef.
- Twin convection
- Wi-Fi Enabled
- Culinary Center
- 7-Inch Full Color Touch-Anywhere LCD Display
A full-color LCD display allows the user to touch anywhere on the display to select options that are organized precisely on each screen. The display intuitively presents information to make it easy to get the most out of all of the oven's functions.
- DuraFinish™ Protection
With excellence in every detail, DuraFinish™ Protection helps keep the stainless-steel convection tower looking like new, resisting yellowing, staining and scratching.
- Soft, Auto-Close Door
Soft, auto-close technology lets the oven door close softly, quietly, securely.
- 10.0 Cubic Foot Total Capacity
With a combined oven capacity of 10.0 cubic feet, this double wall oven gives you the ability to perform different types of cooking methods at once and can accommodate a wide variety of cookware sizes.
There will be a time when you will tell the wall oven to cook lasagna. The oven will scan the refrigerator for the ingredients and set the dishwasher to the right cycle for cleanup.
Jenn-Air (and Samsung) will probably be the company with that technology first. It is already Wi-Fi enabled and even the first with Alexa capability.
Jenn-Air is the easiest to operate. Like the Wolf and the Miele, you can scroll through automatic cooking programs, but Jenn-Air is the only one to show you pictures of the finished product.
Of these 4, each has its advantages. Miele, Jenn-Air, and Wolf are the easiest to use.
However, Miele is the only oven to utilize steam for baking bread or adding moisture for caramelizing or hardening cheese lasagna.
Wolf has the best blower system and technically the best convection for cooking faster and more evenly.
Jenn-air is the most technology forward. You no longer have to be tethered to your oven waiting for the cycle countdown. You have that information right on the phone.
Yet, BlueStar without any technology is the best for broiling with an unbelievably hot infrared burner.
The right oven depends on how you cook.... but here is a video explaining every option.
