Compact Oven

Save space without compromising performance with a compact oven that allows you to bake, roast, reheat or grill any dish to the same standards as a larger model.

Capacity
49L

The ultimate kitchen duo
For a secondary cooking space, stack a compact oven with a standard size and you can roast your dinner at the same time you bake your dessert. Plus, the consistent finishes and controls between models create a streamline look.

Edge to edge perfection
AEG’s Sous Vide system means no more over or under cooking, delivering unprecedented control and restaurant quality results when vacuum sealed food is finished in the SteamPro oven.

Moisture and flavour security
For reassurance against dried out dishes, AEG’s constant advanced humidity sensor measures and automatically regulates temperature and moisture levels to suit what food you’re cooking.

Single Oven

Single Oven

The most common type of built-in oven, single ovens offer kitchen layouts with no bounds, able to be installed under the bench or at eye level within your wall cabinetry. Whether the standard 60cm or larger 90cm, single ovens are abundant in practical and special features.

Capacity
70L - 125L

Quality made standard
You can trust in the technology of AEG’s three level Food Sensor guide so every leg of lamb or sticky pudding comes out exactly how you want and expect it finished - rare, medium or well done.

Tailored command
Whether altering the time, temperature or function, AEG’s intuitive Command Wheel puts you in charge with just a touch. Even the slightest adjustment appears on the EXCITE+ TFT Display, for effortless monitoring of your meal.

60 or 90cm Oven

Your at-home sous chef
Offload the mental load of remembering exact settings and timings for the crispiest baked potatoes or juiciest lamb to Assisted Cooking. After scrolling through menus, select a food category and the oven initiates the correct settings for you. Plus, it automatically shuts off after cooking.

Soft close
The gentle closing mechanism means the door is cushioned to shut soundlessly for a truly premium experience.

Pyrolytic Oven

Pyrolytic Oven

AEG’s Pyroluxe self-cleaning function heats baked-on food splatters and spills until they are carbonised and turned to ash, offering a superior clean. The only thing you’ll need to tend to is wiping the oven out with a damp cloth after.

Capacity
70L - 125L

How it works
Extreme temperatures disintegrate any stubborn food splatters or spills, offering a chemical free way to sanitise your oven. Cooking residues are turned to ash, that simply needs wiping away.

Three unique levels
AEG ovens possess three pyrolytic cycles. The 60 minute Quick cycle suits a low degree of grime, while the 90 minute normal cycle is best for standard levels of muck. Highly stained and soiled ovens may require the 3 hour Intense cycle.

A comprehensive clean
Before running a pyrolytic cycle, remove all stainless steel racks and side runners, which can be cleaned by hand. For a gleaming finish once the cycle is complete, give the glass door some attention.

Safety first
AEG’s trusted locking function secures the oven door shut until the appliance is again cool to touch.

Accurate control
Take the guesswork out of your next dinner party with AEG’s Food Sensor. Meticulously measuring the core temperature of each dish, it will audibly alert you when cooked through just how you like it.

Steam Oven

Capacity
49L - 125L

How it works

FUEL TYPE

While size, style and cooking functions influence your oven choices, fuel type (gas or electric) is another key consideration.
Electric Ovens

Electric Ovens

More common than gas because they’re more affordable to buy and install, electric ovens provide even dry heat distribution after pre-heating, especially fan forced models. Most will need professional fitting.
Gas Ovens

Gas Ovens

They tend to be more expensive as they provide greater energy savings across their lifetime, offering faster heating and more precise temperature control. Gas ovens also cook with greater moisture and can run off natural gas of an LPG bottle.
