A freestanding oven is a combination of oven and cooktop. We lab test and review dual fuel ranges and fully electric ovens to help you decide which brand and model is right for you. 

Is a wall oven a better fit for your kitchen? Our general ovens buying guide will help you decide.

If you do a lot of entertaining or have a large family to cook for, a 90cm model will be a good option. But if you have less space to play with or just don't need a big oven and cooktop, then a 60cm model may be a better choice.

Our lab results will tell you which freestanding ovens:

  • are the best overall performers
  • perform well in a range of oven and cooktop performance tests
  • are easiest to use
  • are easiest to clean.

We also note important features such as grills, child locks, internal and external dimensions, and construction materials.

Some models shown in this review are from previous tests and are no longer available in stores. We've kept these test results available for people who may be shopping for a second-hand oven. To view discontinued models, select 'Discontinued' under the 'Related products' criteria.
