How much does an oven cost?

The price of a stove will usually fall between $250 for a stand-alone range that includes an oven to as much as $5,000 for double ovens designed to be built into a cabinet/wall. The costs will depend on the brand, the type, the features, what it’s made of and the type of oven.  Refer to our chart below to give you an idea of what you may pay for certain models.  Our chart below showcases some of the most popular oven searches, along with the price.  Since most people, who are looking for a stand-alone oven, are often looking for a double oven built into the wall, we focused more on that product.

Oven overveiw

There are two popular oven options:  a range, which will have a combination of the cooktop and oven, making it an all-in-one appliance, and the wall oven, an oven built directly into the wall. Ranges are then broken down into these categories:  freestanding, slide-in, drop-in and cooktops.

As for the standalone ranges, there are four heating types:  dual fuel, electric, gas and induction.  A dual fuel range will combine both electric and gas.  An induction range will focus the heat on the cookware for faster boiling and cooking.

Control knobs, which are used to control the oven, will either be made from metal or plastic.  These knobs can either be heavy or light.  Higher-end ovens often don’t have control panels and rely on smart controls.

Wall ovens come in standard widths of 24, 27 and 30 inches; however, some brands may vary by an inch or so.

The oven capacity will vary from 3 cubic feet to as much as 5.8 cubic feet.

Most wall ovens will be electric.

All of the hoses and cords needed to install the oven properly will be included.

A user manual with instructions for use and installation will be included.

Most freestanding ranges will include the oven, a stovetop and a drawer for storage

Common colors will include stainless steel, black, white and bisque.

Other premium options could include a self-cleaning option, sabbath mode, a glass top stove, a timer, glass doors, a larger capacity and/or dual ovens.

Most name brands are going to come with a limited warranty that can last up to a lifetime.  Each and every warranty will be different, so be sure to know what yours is going to cover.  For example, Wisconsin Oven offers a lifetime warranty.

What are the extra costs?

If you want your new oven professionally installed, this could cost an additional $100 to $250.  With this installation, you will have to purchase a power cord and a gas line connector separately.  Before choosing a power cord, see if it is either a three or four prong plug.

If you need to have your new oven delivered to your home, there is usually a delivery charge of about $25 to $75. Some stores may include this for free if you purchase through their store.

To have your electric oven converted to a gas line, additional fees can apply.

Adding a self-cleaning option can often be $300 more.

A convection oven, which uses an internal fan to circulate hot air in the oven, can be a feature that costs an additional $200 or so.

Adding a warming drawer to the oven can be an additional $1,000 to $2,000, depending on the brand.

Installing or replacing a range hood will be a separate purchase.  If purchasing a stand alone range, you will want to replace this as well to make sure the appliances match one another.  A range hood will cost about $50 to as much as $800.

Tips to know:

Be sure to measure the exact oven size before purchasing a new one.  Each oven is going to have its own dimensions.  You will want to make sure that this particular oven is going to fit the space in your kitchen.

Be sure to know your hook-ups.  Is it electric of gas?  While one can be converted, it’s going to cost more money if you don’t have the proper hookup.

Top brands to consider:

How can I save money?

Shopping around and watching for sales is the best way to save money.  According to HouseLogic.com, the best times to buy an appliance is in September, October and January when they are rolling out new models.

Consider talking with appliance stores to see if they offer free installation if the oven is purchased through their store.  If so, this is a great way to save upwards of $250+
