WALL OVEN SIZES: HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT FIT
If you’re replacing your old wall oven, you’ll want to make sure you find a new wall oven that’s the perfect fit for your kitchen layout, as well as your cooking process. In this wall oven sizes guide, learn how to measure your kitchen for the right wall oven dimensions while you explore all your options and possibilities for different types of wall ovens.
WHAT ARE STANDARD WALL OVEN SIZES?
Standard single wall oven sizes are usually 24, 27 or 30 inches wide and 27–29 inches high. Wall oven depths typically range from 22–24 inches in order to fit standard cabinet measurements. This depth range offers capacities from 2–5 cubic feet. The depth and height of wall ovens remain the same, regardless of width.
It’s important to note that these dimensions are generalized. You should always consult the manufacturer’s recommended cut-out dimensions before purchasing a model.
HOW TO MEASURE FOR STANDARD WALL OVEN SIZE
1. MEASURE FOR STANDARD WALL OVEN CAPACITY
Expect around 2 to 3.5 cubic feet of interior space for a 24-inch-wide single wall oven and around 4 to 5 cubic feet for a 27 or 30-inch-wide single wall oven.
3. Measure for Standard Wall Oven Depth
Typical wall oven depths range from 22 to 24 inches to accommodate standard kitchen cabinets, with total unit depth being approximately 27 inches including the door and handle. An open door will add about 20 inches to the depth, so make sure that area is clear.

WHAT ARE DOUBLE WALL OVEN DIMENSIONS?
Double wall ovens have the same width and depth as a single wall oven, but the height will be around 51 inches. Capacity will be double the single wall oven, so from 5 to 7 total combined cubic feet for 24-inch-wide wall ovens and 8 to 10 total combined cubic feet for 27 and 30-inch-wide wall ovens.
Both ovens are usually the exact same size, though there will be only one control panel for both ovens.

What are Combination Wall Oven Dimensions?
Combination wall ovens, which are a combo of microwave and oven, come in 24, 27 and 30-inch wide models. The depth ranges from 24 to 27 inches, while the height can be anywhere from 4-44 inches, depending on capacity.

HOW CAN I MEASURE MY CURRENT WALL OVEN CABINET DIMENSIONS?
For a proper fit, carefully measure the width, depth and height of your cabinet opening following the steps below. Always reference the manufacturer’s cutout dimensions for your model to ensure correct installation.
1. Measure for Wall Oven Cabinet Width
Use measuring tape to measure from the left inside cabinet edge to the right inside cabinet edge. Keep in mind that the oven should be a fairly tight fit in the cutout.
2. Measure for Standard Wall Oven Depth
Measure from the back of the opening to the front of the cabinets. Keep in mind the oven door will extend past the cabinets. Make sure there is at least 20 inches of open space in front of the oven so you can fully open the door to load and unload your food.
3. Measure for Wall Oven Cabinet Height
Measure from the top of the cabinet opening to the bottom of the cabinet opening. Again, a tighter fit is ideal.
TIP: PLACE THE TOP OF THE WALL OVEN AT EYE LEVEL
When deciding how high above the floor to install the wall oven, the only requirement is that there’s enough clearance for the door to fully open. An ideal height would be for the top oven to open below the waist and the console to be at eye level for whoever uses it most.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I CONSIDER WHEN LOOKING FOR A NEW WALL OVEN?
Once you’re sure about the wall oven dimensions you need, start to think about other considerations that will help you create in the kitchen, like features and finishes that match your cooking and aesthetic style.
A convection oven typically features a fan that circulates hot air inside the oven and around dishes to help maintain a consistent temperature. True convection systems offer a third heating element in addition to the fan. Even-Heat™ True Convection by KitchenAid uses a unique bow-tie design that circulates hot air throughout the entire oven for flaky baked goods, juicy roasts and caramelized vegetables.

3. Fit Guarantees
Some manufacturers will guarantee a perfect fit. The KitchenAid® Fit System Limited Guarantee allows for customization of wall oven installation to match the height of existing cabinets through flexible design elements.3
4. Styles & Finishes
White, black and stainless steel are the most common color options. You can also upgrade to a fingerprint-resistant exterior finish, which is available on most ovens today, often in both traditional stainless steel and black stainless steel.
5. Additional Upgrades
Other details like handle finishes and control styles can upgrade the look and feel of your appliance. For example, KitchenAid brand’s Professionally Styled Design combines a bold blend of professionally inspired styling with sleek touches for the home.
