Ovens are often the heart of many Australian kitchens. They’re responsible for helping you create scrumptious dishes like the Sunday roast or baking bread and cakes for your nearest and dearest. Whether you’re looking to renovate your kitchen or simply update your appliances, there are freestanding ovens to fit almost any cavity or space available in your cabinetry.
A freestanding oven – also known as a stove, range or cooker – is a series of hot plates or gas burners sitting on top of a freestanding unit. They come in a number of combinations like a gas stove with an electric oven (or vice versa), plus you can also choose an induction or ceramic top.
If you’re revamping your kitchen, adding a freestanding oven into the mix can be beneficial, especially for those who love to cook and bake. They’re often bigger and wider than wall ovens, giving you more room to cook multiple dishes at the same time.
New to ovens or want to learn more? Check out our Oven Buying Guide. It will walk you through the specifics of what to look for and give you enough information to help you narrow down your choice of oven.
The right freestanding oven for you is going to be the one that matches your cooking needs. To kickstart your journey, take a look at some of the best Westinghouse freestanding ovens or explore a range of Smeg upright cookers.
As mentioned, freestanding ovens come in a variety of combinations. Let’s check out some of the most popular options, including gas, electric, dual fuel and induction.
If you can’t decide between gas and electric, why not get both? Dual fuel means you get the best of both worlds with gas hobs and an electric cooker.
High-tech with a sleek design, this dual fuel cooker from Omega is right up there with the best of the best. Roast, grill and bake in its large 129L oven, and pan-fry to your heart’s content using any of the different sized burners of its generously sized cooktop.
Technika brings you this beautiful stainless steel cooker, complete with a gas stove and electric oven, perfect for dinner parties or meal prepping during the week. Its five burners and 105L capacity can handle cooking multiple dishes at once – and it’s easy to wipe down once you’re done!
If you have a lot of mouths to feed, then this dual fuel oven from Fisher & Paykel might just do the trick. Its big 121L usable capacity holds six shelves so you can have the roast lamb plus a few trays of vegetables on the go at once. Explore nine different cooking settings and watch as the AeroTech technology circulates heat in and around all your food for more consistent cooking.
Looking for a freestanding oven with an electric cooker and a gas cooktop? Check out this one from Smeg – with up to seven cooking functions, five burners and a 115L gross capacity, you’ll feel like a Masterchef preparing every meal.
When you’re researching freestanding ovens, it can be helpful to look for one that’s got enough space, will cook your food quickly and is easy to use and keep clean. When it comes to options for gas, here are a few of our top picks.
Fire up your passion for cooking with this stylish oven from Chef. Sporting four impressive burners, this compact oven is perfect for small apartments.
This Euromaid oven’s stainless steel finish makes it easy to wipe down after cooking. Enjoy four powerful burners and a 83L oven capacity, great for baking delicious pies and cakes.
Westinghouse has designed this sleek and stylish gas oven with an 74L capacity and four quick ignition burners. Keep track of your cooking with its built-in 2-hour mechanical timer too.
Make your favourite soups and sauces on this gas oven from Emilia. With five burners, four cooking functions and a massive 120L capacity, it’s perfect for family meals or entertaining your crew.
An alternative to gas, freestanding electric ovens tend to heat the oven cavity quicker and offer a more accurate temperature reading. They can also be simpler to install since all they require is a connection to the power. Plus, electric ovens produce a dryer heat than gas, which can make them easier to clean.
This oven has similar features to the gas model by Chef listed above, making it a great option if you live in an apartment or have a smaller kitchen cavity available.
Induction cookers have become quite popular with Australian families because they’re more energy efficient, safer and easier to clean than gas or electric stoves. Induction cooktops are also quicker to heat, so you can get your dishes up and running in a flash. If this sounds perfect for you, read our article about all the differences between induction vs gas cooktops.
Featuring an electric oven below its gas cooktop, this freestanding oven by InAlto is stylish and powerful. Its 112L capacity is matched by five burners, giving you a variety of options for cooking and a way to save space in your kitchen.
Take up space on the large induction cooktop of this freestanding cooker and experiment with five different cooking zones and nine heat settings. The electric oven has enough room in its 121L cavity for a large family feast – all you need to do is plan the menu!
When you’re looking for a freestanding oven, there are a few key things to keep in mind. To begin, set your budget and make sure you measure the width, depth and height of the space where you’d like your cooker to go.
There are a couple of different measurements to pay attention to when choosing your freestanding oven. The typical size for most freestanding ovens is 50-60cm, great for smaller spaces and apartments. While the 80-90cm options possess a more commercial, stainless steel finish.
At a minimum, make sure your freestanding oven has these functions:
Conventional: Heat comes from the top and bottom elements, with no fan.
Fan-forced: A fan circulates the heat in and around shelves, which often allows for more even cooking.
Pizza mode: Perfect for anything that needs a crispy base, like pizza, this mode uses higher heat for the bottom element combined with fan-force.
Fan grill: Great for meats that need a longer cooking time, like chicken or steak, as it crisps the outside of food while it still can cook through.
We’ve discussed fuel type above, but it’s important that you know what connections you have available to you at home. It wouldn’t make sense to get a gas cooker if you don’t have a gas tap in the kitchen, so make sure you double check your utility connections and don’t get caught out.
Flat cooktops are easier to keep clean than other stoves with electric or multiple cast iron gas burner plates. Looking for a cooker that’s easy to clean can save you time and ensure the longevity of your freestanding oven.
For big families or if you entertain at home regularly, consider a cooker with more than four burners. If it’s just you or you’re in a small apartment, you might be able to get away with less.
Once you’ve picked out and purchased your new freestanding oven, The Good Guys Home Services team offer an oven installation service that takes care of all the hard work for you. We’ll arrange a qualified tradie to install your oven and even take away your old one. All work is guaranteed and certified, so let us take care of it for you!
