Side Swing Ovens
Built-In ovens with doors that open from the side instead of from the top are not new. In fact, the current model Frigidaire with a side swing oven door goes back at least to the 1970's as this was a standard model in one of Frigidaire's other brands White-Westinghouse. Today this Frigidaire model is commonly chosen by designers looking for an ADA approved side opening oven. For pricing and availability contact Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center (UAKC).
Italian brand Fagor has a an attractive wall oven with a side swinging door in a 24″ width design (fits standard European cabinets). The Fagor unit is made with both left and right hand swing. Think of a side-by-side double oven configuration.
BlueStar has a hefty looking design for its side swing oven which is available in a 24″ configuration for a single door and 27″ and 30″ widths in a French door style oven.
This expensive European brand is highly regarded, and found in luxury kitchens throughout the continent and in the U.S. Gaggenau side swing wall ovens are available in both left and right hand opening doors, in a variety of models and sizes.
French Door Ovens
In the mid 90's Jade Range Company introduced a wall oven with side opening doors in the French Door style. Since then, Jade, primarily a commercial cooking product company was acquired by Middleby. And Middleby recently purchased the Viking Range Company. So, it comes as no surprise that Viking's new line includes a French door wall oven.
As mentioned above, BlueStar has both a side swing oven in a 24″ width and a French Door version in the 27″ and 30″ widths that are so common in the U.S.
Another high-end range manufacturer, American Range builds 30″ French door ovens in single oven configurations as well as double ovens with 2 French door ovens or 1 French door oven and a second conventional door oven below.
Are French door ovens the next trend in wall ovens? Only time will tell. Check them out at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center today.
