Accomodating for electric ovens
We are currently in the process of scouring the stores, pan-in-hand, to see if any are large enough, but I figured I'd ask here first. Are there any 27" ovens that are wide enough to accomodate a 3/4 sheet pan? Update: The Kitchen Aid True Convection Architect 27" has interior dimensions of 22" width, 16" height, and 18.75" depth, which appears to be just big enough for a 3/4 sheet pan.Update #2: It turns out my cabinet was just wide enough to actually fit a 30" oven, so this question is now pretty much moot for me.Slide-In ranges feature the burner and oven controls up front and also are a little bit wider on top to overlap the countertop to create a built-in look.There are two main benefits: Style and Cleanability.Slide-In models and freestanding models are most often 30” wide to fit conventional cabinets.However, while they both require a 30” cabinet opening, slide-in models have unfinished sides so they are truly designed to be built-in between two cabinets.
In 1897, William Hadaway was granted US patent # 574537 for an "Automatically Controlled Electric Oven".So when we renovated our new place, we didn't set up a build-in oven cabinet in the kitchen design.It seemed impractical to have a white elephant appliance at that time since we thought we weren't likely to be cooking much.Early electric stoves were unsatisfactory due to the cost of electricity (compared with wood, coal, or city gas), limited power available from the electrical supply company, poor temperature regulation, and short life of heating elements.The invention of nichrome alloy for resistance wires improved the cost and durability of heating elements.
