This guide will advise you as to how you might go about making this decision.
History of the oven
The oven is one of the oldest things in the human world! The oldest ovens were actually invented some 29000 years before Christ! These ovens are nothing like what we think of as an oven or stove today and are in reality more of a ‘kiln’ or fire-based cooking system. As we know them today, gas ovens first came into use in the early 19th Century and of course the electric oven is much newer and were invented in the very late 19th Century. Today, every kitchen has a multi-functional oven at its centre.
Electric or gas oven?
There are huge debates about what kinds of oven are best and sometimes this comes down to personal taste. The two main types are the gas oven and the electric oven, though there are also ovens which make use of both these forms of energy as well. In recent years there are increasingly popular alternatives such as the microwave oven. This guide will be focussed on the two main types of oven, the gas oven and the electric oven. For most people one of these bits of equipment will form the centre of the kitchen. It will be used for cooking the majority of meals both in the oven itself and on the hobs.
How and where to buy an oven ?
The guide will discuss the best brands of oven out there. There are huge price and quality differences between different brands and it is worth thinking long and hard about which brand is best for you. The guide will run through these differences and make your choice easier for you. Following this, the guide will turn to a discussion of the differences between gas and electric ovens. Whether to go for gas or electric is the most important decision that you’ll make when choosing an oven, and most people have strong feelings one way or the other. The final part of the guide will turn from here to discussing where you might make your purchase from, and where and how to get the best deals and cheapest prices.
