A freestanding oven is a combination of oven and cooktop. We lab test dual fuel (fully electric oven and gas cooktop) and fully electric (fully electric oven with either ceramic or induction cooktop) models to find the best performers on the market.  

Our test results will tell you which freestanding ovens:

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

We've also partnered with Shop Ethical on this update to show the ratings the Ethical Consumer Group gives to each company.

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.

We also note important features such as grills, child locks, internal and external dimensions, and construction materials. Our Recommended list will show you at a glance which ovens come out on top.

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' filters on the left-hand side.
