A good kitchen appliance can make all the difference.

If you're someone who likes to cook a lot, you'll know the difference between a mediocre appliance and a great one. While a good quality appliance might cost more, it's worth the investment for easy cooking.

Let’s take a look at the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range and see whether they’re worth having in your kitchen.

What Is The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range?

The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range is a professional distribution of 30-inch stove-top ovens that operate solely on gas.

This Bertazzoni range comes with four or five surface burners. One of these burners has a higher Btu output. The construction of the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range is heavy-duty stainless steel.

Because the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range relies on gas for both the stove-top and the oven, there is no self-cleaning feature on any of these appliances. They are free-standing models with stainless steel legs, which can slide effortlessly in between your kitchen cabinets.

The single oven has a convection mode, which is relatively typical of Bertazzoni appliances. This Pro-Style range is on the smaller end of the spectrum when it comes to size. However, it’s perfect if you’re limited on space and need a high-quality appliance.

While the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range may be small, it's still capable of doing a good job when it comes to cooking and baking. Without further ado let’s give the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range a review.

Specifications Of The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range

The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range typically comes with four burners. The knobs of the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range are metal coated, with brass burners and cast iron crates.

The grating on top of the burners is continuous, making it easy to transfer pots and pans across the worktop surface. The one hand ignition allows you to light the gas with ease while keeping it child-proof.

The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range comes with a back guard for backsplash and easier cleaning. You may also get a wok adaptor to allow for Asian cuisine, and a simmer ring should you use a larger pot.

The single oven in the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range runs on gas, as does the broiler. The oven itself has 4.7 cubic feet of capacity, with three oven functions – bake, convection bake, and broiler.

The oven itself contains dual fans and removable inner glass to make cleaning easy. The soft-close door allows for gentle opening and closing. There are seven oven levels with two wire shelves that you can take out and adjust.

The oven lights are double lateral, and the legs are made of stainless steel, like the rest of the exterior.

Things To Remember When Using The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range

Now that we’ve looked at the specifications of the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range let's discuss a couple of things you need to remember when using this particular appliance.

Because this range features a cooling fan, you may experience heat from the oven pushed out into the room when you open the oven door.

The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range comes with a thermocouple feature. This means that if the flame is accidentally blown out, the thermocouple feature will cut off the gas, making sure that there isn't any leaking into the room.

It’s always recommended that you pre-heat your oven before cooking anything. Ideally, the oven needs to be at the temperature the recipe suggests before you place the food in.

The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range comes with a convection system. This means that hot air circulates the interior of the oven by the two horizontal fans located on the back wall. This ensures a more even bake and faster cook time.

You may also use the light function even when the oven is not on. This is great for when you’re cleaning the oven. When doing so, ensure that you’re not turning the temperature of the oven on.

Pricing The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range

Now that we’ve covered the specifications of the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range in detail, let’s take a look at how this range compares in price across a couple of different retail outlets:

  • Amazon: online retail giant Amazon has the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range in stock and available. This particular model has a slightly smaller oven capacity than we've previously talked about, coming in at 3.5 cubic feet. 
  • AJ Madison: the classic kitchen appliance company AJ Madison also has the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range available. AJ Madison offers free shipping and rebates are available with this range. 
  • ABT: ABT offers the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range for the mid-range price of $$. They also offer free shipping for this product. It doesn't seem that it's available in any other color than stainless steel. ABT also offers extended warranties and financing options with the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range.

We’ve compared the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range in price across three different retailers. Now, let’s compare the appliance itself against other brands in a similar price bracket.

The Bertazzoni MAST305GAS falls a bit flat against the Samsung NX58K9850. This Samsung model is slide-in, allowing for an easy installation. However, because it has the advantage of being connected to Wi-Fi, we foresee the assembly time being a little longer.

However, the Samsung NX58K9850 comes with a griddle and has a double oven. However, the oven itself is still smaller than the Bertazzoni MAST305GAS, coming in at 3.4 cubic feet.

The Btu output of the Samsung NX58K9850 is higher than the Bertazzoni model. Both models have five burners, though. While the Bertazzoni may be better build quality, the Samsung NX58K9850 is certainly giving it a run for its money with additional features.

Additionally, the Samsung NX58K9850 is making the competition fierce at a reasonable price point, too.

The Bertazzoni MAST305GAS is getting another run for its money with the Bosch HGIP054UC. One of the only features that the Bosch model doesn’t have is the color availability.

The Bosch HGIP054UC comes with a warming drawer and a clock, two oven features that the Bertazzoni MAST305GAS doesn’t include.

Additionally, the Bosch HGIP054UC oven capacity is the larger than the Bertazzoni MAST305GAS, measuring 4.8 cubic feet. The display that controls the oven is digital, which some would say is harder to navigate than a knob.

The door on the Bosch HGIP054UC is removable, allowing for an easier clean. This model comes with three oven racks – the Bertazzoni MAST305GAS only comes with two.

This Bosch model is another slide-in oven, making it easier to install when assembling. Overall, the Bosch HGIP054UC does have a few features that we were unable to locate in the Bertazzoni MAST305GAS. While oven features are subjective and depend on the preferences of the individual, the more features a model has, the more appealing it can be.

The GE JGS760 is easily the cheapest in our range of reviewed gas appliances. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the model you should purchase.

The GE JGS760 offers a broader range of colors than the Bertazzoni MAST305GAS, making this model in different shades of white and black, including slate and black slate.

The GE JGS760 comes with a stove-top griddle, an advantage if you do a lot of breakfast cooking. It has the largest oven capacity out of all our compared models, measuring 5.3 cubic feet. Its oven control type is digital, and it has the additional delay bake function.

The GE JGS760 is the only gas oven range in our comparison that is Star-K certified and ADA compliant.

Advantages Of The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range

First, let's take a look at the benefits of owning a Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range:

  • Burners: consumers often talk about the ease of use that the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range burners offer them. This is because each burner has a different Btu output, allowing for different cooking requirements. With the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range, you get a simmer burner, a rapid burner, a regular burner and a sturdy brass burner that's dual ring.
  • Ignition: igniting the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range is simple and straightforward. Once you’ve gotten used to the ignition and temperature setting, it’s easy to ignite the stove-top. Additionally, the natural gas emits a lovely blue flame that can be easily adjusted.
  • Design: as well as being a practical oven, the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range is being touted as beautiful. Aesthetically speaking, consumers are saying that it’s visually appealing and looks great as an addition to their kitchen. There are also reports that this range is sturdy and well built. Lastly, the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range has been described as being easy to clean. This is a must if you’re going to purchase an oven that doesn’t have a self-clean setting.

Disadvantages Of The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range

We’ve looked at the advantages of the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range. Now, let’s take a look at some of the drawbacks of this range:

  • Electronics: because this oven range is run entirely on gas, there aren't any electronics connected to it. While this has its advantages, there are some setbacks to it as well. These include not being able to tell when the oven temperature is optimal. You may need to purchase a thermometer as an extra addition for this purpose. It can also run a little hot due to this issue.
  • Space: the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range are smaller models, so it makes sense that space could potentially be an issue. The oven capacity isn’t designed to account for large roasts, which can be somewhat frustrating for some. Additionally, there is no room for oven storage, another dealbreaker for many people.
  • Convection: the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range include the convection feature, allowing for a more even bake. However, there have been reports that this oven doesn’t bake as evenly as consumers would hope, even with the convection fans in use.

Reviewing The Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range

We've looked at and examined the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range thoroughly, covering all aspects of this gas oven range. We’ve discussed the specifications and technical aspects of the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range, as well as looked at different price points across the board and compared it against other similar appliances.

In conclusion, we have decided to award the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range 3.8/5 stars. While there are a couple of issues around this oven range being entirely gas run, the Bertazzoni 30 Gas Range is well-built with elegant yet straightforward features that get the job done.

Bertazzoni Stove Review – The Father Of Italian Kitchenware

Bertazzoni Stove

Does your kitchen need a tune-up?


Old appliances can ruin a good meal just as quickly as bad ingredients, so you need to make sure everything is up-to-date. What’s the most important appliance of all? The stove. And yours may be lacking in several ways.


The modern kitchen needs a modern stove above all else. If you’ve got something outdated and dysfunctional, it could put a damper on an otherwise joyful Tuesday-night pot roast or the traditional family pizza night.


So, you’ve decided you do need a new range. But which one should you go with? When it comes to stoves, there are enough options out there to make your head spin. You need to know which brand is best for you.


You may have heard about Bertazzoni. If you haven’t, no worries. We’ll fill you in. This line of luxury appliances is killing it Italian-style, especially when it comes to their stoves. Might this be the holy grail of ranges at the end of your quest? Maybe.


We’re here to tell you everything you need to know about the Bertazzoni stove. We’ll go over pricing, features, technology, and even compare it to some other brands so you’ll know for certain if this is the appliance for you. Read on to enter the exciting world of Bertazzoni.

bertazzoni stove - what exactly is it


Bertazzoni is the father of Italian kitchenware. They’ve been pumping out quality cooking appliances for five generations, and their line of stoves offers anything and everything that a homeowner may want.


They include gas, dual-fuel, electric ovens, and convection-powered stoves and stovetops to ensure you get the kind of power you need and want in your home.


A Bertazzoni stove comes with all the most modern technology and built-in features wrapped up in a chic design that you may not be able to resist. These are some sleek stoves, and they rival even the most luxurious of brands in terms of looks.


As high-end as these ranges are, the prices are pretty reasonable. While the costs won’t exactly shock you, you’ll find them a nice refresher from the kind of money you’d pay for a Wolf or a Miele.

technical specs and special features you need to know about


Features and technical specs vary depending on which model you buy. However, there are some things you can expect to find in every Bertazzoni stove.


Design

gas range

technical specs and special features you need to know about


The Bertazzoni stove is such a special appliance not only because of quality but because of its looks and design versatility. You’ll be able to find a stove to fit your exact spacing needs, with different stovetop configurations to match what you like.


You can choose to have extras added on like a griddle and a secondary oven in the larger stove sizes. Not only that, but these gleaming stoves come in all different colors. Depending on the model, you can pick between red, orange, yellow, white, black, and natural stainless-steel. You may even be able to get more colors if your preferred vendor has them in stock. This means you can choose the best color to go with your kitchen to enhance the design and flow throughout the room.


Every stove is made of stainless steel regardless of the color, and all grating for the gas cooktops is made of cast iron. These materials are the durable industry standard for ranges across the board.


Special Features


Looks aren’t everything, and Bertazzoni knows that. But while they do put emphasis on features like their special brass burners and dual-fan convection system, Bertazzoni fails to deliver on features like auto-cook options and electronic control panels. It’s also worth noting that the brass burners are only available for certain models. Others come with lower-quality aluminum burners.


Electric ovens by Bertazzoni have special settings like proofing, dehydrating, and thawing to get your cooking just right. It’s important to note that while some of the full-sized convection ovens have a dual-fan convection system just like the more expensive brands (such as Jenn-Air and Wolf), some of them do not.


Gas ovens have had a less positive reception from customers. Some claimed that the oven flat-out didn’t work well in any mode other than convection, rendering it useless for delicate pastry and breads. Because of this, a dual-fuel range with an electric oven may be the best choice.


Functionality


top range

Do they work well? The short answer is yes, though it depends largely on which model you want to go with. As stated before, steer clear of the gas oven. What about the stovetop? It seems as though the induction cooktop is making waves in the range community, and it is way more energy-efficient than gas or electric.


However, you won’t get the kind of control you’ll get with a gas burner. Gas cooktops go up to 18,000 BTUs and seem to be the most popular style at Bertazzoni. They obviously put care and consideration into their burners. If you do decide to purchase, buy a model with brass burners and calibrate them properly to eliminate uneven heating problems.


Overall, reviews on functionality were pretty good. Customers claimed their Bertazzoni stove was easy to use, though results varied as far as how food actually turned out. The bottom line? These ranges seem to work well, but you have to know how to use them. You also need to buy a temperature probe or gauge for the oven, because Bertazzoni does not include one.


Technical Specs


The technical specifications vary depending on which model you want to buy. Models are available which fit for spaces 30”, 36”, and 48”. These models are available with gas or induction cooktops, and gas or electric stoves. There is also a super-compact model available which fits a 24” space, though this one is a gas stove and has no option for an electric oven.


Bertazzoni doesn’t skimp on oven space. Even with the smallest 24” model, you’ll still get 2.4 cubic feet of oven space. The 30” model comes with 4.7 cubic feet of space, while the 36” model will deliver 5.7 cubic feet. The largest 48” model comes with two ovens, one at 4.7 cubic feet and a smaller one at 2.4 cubic feet.


The Bertazzoni warranty will cover your appliance for 2 years and includes parts and labor. Does this ensure you’ll get good customer service from Bertazzoni? Unfortunately, no. Reviews on customer service are varied, with some being abysmal and some being even worse. Consumer Reports especially has some choice words to say about Bertazzoni customer service, but it may depend on where you live.


Bertazzoni Stove Pricing And Vendors


So, where can you get a Bertazzoni stove? These babies can be found at many online retailers, but make sure the seller of your choice is authorized so you’ll get the warranty.


ABT is always a good choice, offering up nearly every from the Bertazzoni line. Prices here range from $$$$ for the compact 24" model, all the way up to $$$$ for the 48" model. A 30” model will be $$$$-$$$$, and the 36” model will set you back $$$$-$$$$. The variance in price depends on the color you want.


These prices are much lower than other brands. However, keep in mind that colors and extra styling features will cost you more. You can pay up to $$$$ for a 48” heritage series model. This stove is colorful, flashy, and designed in an old-school style that’ll take you back to the days before electric ovens.


The ever-popular AJ Madison also carries the line, and their prices seem to be on par with ABT. Amazon also has some of these stoves, though they do not have as wide of a variety as ABT and AJ Madison.


How The Bertazzoni Stove Compares With The Competition


Now that you know all about the Bertazzoni stove, let’s compare it to the competition.

The Wolf 36” dual fuel range is a testament to kitchen control. Check out its star ratings:

The Wolf 36” Dual Fuel range seems to have everything that the Bertazzoni has, feature-wise. The twin-fan convection system, tons of oven settings, and 20,000 BTUs make it just as powerful if not more powerful than the Bertazzoni.

It provides even more features on top of that, including a “Premiere Simmer” setting which gives you the most control out of nearly every range on the market. The price of the Wolf is easily twice the price of the Bertazzoni, but you’re getting a product which provides many more features and much better control.

This stainless-steel range is very durable, with parts meant to last you a lifetime. However, the 1-year parts and labor warranty on this particular model leaves something to be desired but buying from a showroom may get you a better warranty.

The Miele Pro-Style range is a true top-of-the-line product with admirable star ratings:

$$$$

The Miele is the stove for you if you want tons of settings, special features, and easy-to-use controls. Besides the gas burners, everything about this stove is electronic. It’s got an LED touchscreen display for the oven, making programming easy and quick.

It also goes with tons of power with 19,000 BTUs of power on the stove. It does cost around $$$$ more than the Bertazzoni, which makes sense considering the LED controls and over 100 MasterChef oven settings. It also comes with a wireless roast probe and oven temperature reader, so there won’t be any guesswork involved when baking or roasting.

If you’re willing to pay top dollar, this oven is surely worth it. However, some people may not want all those electrical components. They tend to break more easily, and some people don’t want to take the time to program them. The warranty will not cover parts broken after one year of ownership.

The KitchenAid induction range is their answer to Bertazzoni’s own induction range, and its star ratings are pretty good:

The KitchenAid is a good bit bigger than the Bertazzoni, offering a total of 7.1 cubic feet of oven capacity. This is just at the 30” model. The KitchenAid also has many features that the Bertazzoni doesn’t, like the “steam bake” setting and a whopping 7 oven rack-placement guides.

The price of the KitchenAid is technically a few hundred dollars less than the price of the corresponding Bertazzoni oven. But it isn’t available in any other colors and is thus not as customizable as the Bertazzoni. It also has a lesser warranty at just one year.

Pros And Cons Of The Bertazzoni Stove

Now that we’ve checked out the competition, let’s go over the pros and cons of the Bertazzoni stove.

Pros

  • Much less expensive than other high-quality ranges from Miele and Wolf.
  • Better warranty than Miele and KitchenAid at 2 years.
  • Comes in customizable colors and styles which Miele, KitchenAid, and Wolf brands don’t offer.
  • Made of durable and high-quality material.

Cons

  • Poor customer service, whereas Wolf is notorious for their great customer service.
  • Reports of gas stoves working improperly and ruining food.
  • Simmer setting not as precise as Miele or Wolf
  • Doesn’t include temperature probe like Miele and Wolf.
  • Takes some getting used to, and requires adjustments to figure out the best settings, temperature, etc.

Our Final Verdict On the bertazzoni stove


A Bertazzoni stove is a great buy, depending on what you’re looking for and how much time you want to spend figuring out your new stove.


Star Rating: We give this product 3 stars overall. The dual-fuel and induction-topped models seem to work well, but too many people had problems with the gas-powered oven. It’s a lot of work to figure out which internal temperature your oven has reached, and since there is no thermometer you will have to buy one if you want to bake anything.


If you’re looking for a fun stove in customizable colors, the Bertazzoni dual-fuel or induction stove could fit your needs perfectly. They’re adorable, stylish, and way less expensive than other luxury brands.

GE Monogram Wall Oven Review : A Wall Oven Is A Great Choice

Do you have dreams of beautifully baked goods dancing through your head?

No matter what you hope to whip up in the kitchen, a good oven is a must. But which kind? A wall oven is a great choice. This kind of unit will save you space, without making you sacrifice that sleek look you absolutely adore.

But which wall oven is right for you? It’s a veritable swamp of information out there on the internet and researching appliances gets hairy fast. Each brand claims to have the best of the best, but there’s a difference between a smart marketing ploy and a stand-up product.

Luckily, we’re here to help you navigate this tricky world of wall ovens. Today, we’ll be reviewing the GE Monogram wall oven, specifically the single electric wall oven. These chic little machines may just be the answer to your prayers.

We’ll give you the real skinny on this oven, including aspects both good and bad, so you can make an informed decision when it comes time to purchase.

Read on to discover everything there is to know about the Monogram wall oven and find out if it’s the right product for you.

Comparison Table

What Exactly Is The GE Monogram Wall Oven?

The GE Monogram wall oven is different than a freestanding oven or one in a range. This type of oven mounts right into the wall, or under the countertop.

This has the potential to completely revolutionize the design of your kitchen. General Electric has been a leading manufacturer of appliances for over 125 years. Their commitment to style, innovation, and functionality manifests especially well in the Monogram series.

The best of the Monogram series could very well be their line of electric wall ovens. They’re lean and mean, while still being almost ridiculously adorable. It seems like every type of technology known to man is packed into this little oven.

Technical Specs And Special Features You Need To Know About

Any GE Monogram wall oven you choose will be chocked full of special features and great design quality, and the single electric wall oven is no different. Here’s a taste of what you’ll get with your purchase.

Design

GE Monogram Design

The design of the GE Monogram series is absolutely unparalleled in the world of appliance manufacturers. This oven is not only seriously beautiful but having it set back in the wall is convenient as well. Not only that, but you’ll get to choose between stylistic features that you want. Stainless steel flows elegantly in both French-door styles and traditional top-to-bottom doors.

Technology

GE Monogram Technology

Whatever your personal needs, there’s an oven for that. You can choose between a speed-cooking oven or a regular oven, with either Advantium or convection-powered cooking technology.

The Advantium-powered speed-cooking ovens incorporate both heat and light-based cooking, so food cooks faster while still being browned evenly. This tech is similar to a microwave, but the food is decidedly baked rather than “zapped”.

These microwave/convection combos offer tons of different built-in settings, from pizza to popcorn and everything in between. You can also manually program it to your liking.

Other models rely on the more traditional convection technology, which uses a number of fans to distribute heat evenly around the food. Which technology you want will depend on how fast you want to cook. Keep in mind that speed ovens also have a regular convection setting, so you’ll get the best of all worlds with models like the ZSC1202JSS and ZSC1001JSS.

Special Features

GE Monogram Special Features

The Monogram series is designed to take the hassle out of cooking, cleaning, and even waiting for your food to be done. They incorporate the newest technology and a plethora of features to accomplish this.

All models come with an electric temperature and time display, making them easy to use. Many GE Monogram wall ovens are capable of connecting to Wi-Fi, so they’ll be able to integrate seamlessly into your smart-home system.

Most ovens will self-clean using extreme heat, but a few choice Monogram ovens self-clean using the steam method. This is especially good if your baking gets a little bit messy sometimes and you absolutely abhor cleaning.

Technical Specs

GE Monogram Technical Specs

Technical specs vary depending on which model you buy. The single wall ovens come in a range of sizes and capacities to suit your needs. You can get an Advantium oven with a capacity as small as 1.6 cubic feet if you’re interested in small casseroles and mini-pizzas. You can also get a full-sized convection oven with a capacity of 5 cubic feet if that’s more your speed.

Specific dimensions and weights vary as well, though it’s safe to say that the Monogram series has something that fits your needs.

The smallest dimensions can be found in the Advantium microwave-style ovens. These are 19 inches high, 29 inches wide, and 21.5 inches deep. They weigh in at just 79 pounds, making them a truly lightweight piece of equipment.

On the other end of the spectrum, the largest of the convection ovens is 28.5 inches high, 29 inches wide, and 27.5 inches deep. It weighs around 190 pounds. It’s not exactly a behemoth, but you wouldn’t want to drop it on your toe. Each GE Monogram wall oven comes with a 2-year warranty or 1-year warranty covering parts and labor, depending on which model you buy. Additional warranty caveats may cover specific parts, such as halogen lights, for periods of time up to 5 years.

GE Monogram Wall Oven Pricing And Vendors

So, where can you get one of these bad boys? If you want to buy locally, you can search for a dealer via the GE Appliances website. Alternately, AJ Madison carries the Monogram line of wall ovens, though they may not have every model in stock.

Home Depot also has certain models, as does ABT. As far as the price is concerned, the GE Monogram series features luxury appliances. That means you must be prepared to pay a luxury price. The wall ovens equipped with Advantium technology range from $$$$ all the way up to $$$$

The convection ovens are a bit more expensive. They range from$$$$ to $$$$ MSRP, though you may find different prices on different sites.

The most expensive of all the ovens is the French door convection oven, which costs a hefty $$$$ MSRP. However, you can find it on AJ Madison for $$$$

If you really want a sleek GE Monogram wall oven but don’t want to pay full price for it, private sellers are available on eBay and Amazon. Keep in mind that you won’t get the warranty with a preowned oven.

It’s best to have some knowledge about how they work before buying from a private seller because you’ll most likely have to fix it yourself if something breaks. According to Amazon’s customer reviews, this isn’t a big problem so far in the convection ovens. However, the Advantium ovens seemed to be less sturdy overall, and cause more problems.

How The GE Monogram Wall Oven Compares To Other Brands

Now that you’ve got an overall idea of the how the Monogram series single wall ovens work and how much they cost, let’s compare them to other brands.

The Smeg Speed Oven is this brand’s answer to Ge’s Advantium technology. Check out its star ratings:

Like the Advantium-powered ovens from the GE monogram series, this Smeg speed oven is powered by both convection and microwave technology. It has 10 cooking modes and 5 power levels, giving you maximum control over your meal.

It’s the same price as some of the GE Advantium ovens. So, what’s the difference? It doesn’t seem like there’s much of one, except for the way that customers reviewed it. Some buyers complained that the settings just didn’t work, producing soggy pizza and burnt popcorn — yuck.

However, other buyers seemed to really enjoy their Smeg speed oven, claiming that it’s a good looking and high-functioning machine. The Smeg oven also comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty, which is convenient if something breaks later on. However, it’s not as good as the GE warranty.

The KitchenAid electric wall oven is comparable to the GE Monogram series ovens. But will it really compare in terms of functionality?

Warranty

It seems the KitchenAid is actually even more feature-rich than the GE Monogram. It includes a food probe for temperature reading, a glass touch-display, and a self-cleaning (though not steam-cleaning) cycle. And all this while saving thousands of dollars?

It’s possible. The KitchenAid seems to be a reliable piece of technology, according to customer reviews. The only complaint some customers seemed to have was that the build quality wasn’t exactly up to par — buyers experienced failed motherboards and peeling paint too soon after purchasing.

However, your experience could be different. The warranty covers one-year with parts and labor but is extended to cover certain mishaps up to five years after purchase.

The Bosch single wall oven is another high-end oven which claims luxury status. Check out its star ratings:

This single wall oven is packed full of convenience features and cook settings. The Bosch comes with a high-resolution electric interface which theoretically makes usage that much easier. This oven boasts 14 cooking modes, European-style convection technology, and self-cleaning technology.

Sounds good, but not necessarily better than the GE Monogram wall ovens. The price is right up there with the mid-range Monograms, and it really does seem as though you get more features with the Bosch.

It’s the little things that make the big difference, like the Sabbath setting and the soft-closing hinges. The oven comes with a 1-year parts and labor warranty, which is standard for the industry but not necessarily better than the Monogram. If you think you’d use all these features, the Bosch may be a better oven. However, if you want a simple machine that’s easier to use, a GE Monogram wall oven may be for you.

Pros And Cons Of The GE Monogram Wall Oven

So, we’ve examined the GE Monogram line of wall ovens and thoroughly checked out the competition. Let’s recap with a quick pros and cons list to summarize the info, and hopefully help you make your decision.

Pros

  • The Monogram series of wall ovens gives you true flexibility. You’ll get to pick and choose sizes, features, and which technology you like.
  • Better warranty on some models than the Bosch, the KitchenAid, and the Smeg.
  • Wi-Fi capable ovens available.
  • Extremely user-friendly ovens with a simpler interface than the one offered on the Bosch.
  • Good price on par with other high-end luxury wall ovens.

Cons

  • Monogram ovens are less feature-rich than the Bosch.
  • Advantium-powered wall ovens seemed to break more quickly than the convection ovens, but buyers of the KitchenAid had similar problems.
  • French-door model is extremely desirable, but the price puts it out of range for some buyers.

Our Final Verdict On The GE Monogram Wall Oven

A GE Monogram wall oven could be the perfect oven for you, depending on what you want.

Star Rating: We give these ovens 4 stars. The convection ovens are the cream of the crop and rival any other high-end convection oven in terms of price and features. However, the quick-cook ovens featuring Advantium technology may break quickly or wear down with time.

If you’re looking for a speed-cooking oven, it may be better to go with something like the Smeg, especially if you don’t use a lot of built-in settings. However, a GE Monogram convection wall oven is a great purchase for your home.

If you’re ready to get cooking, you may want to hop on the GE website as quickly as possible and snatch one of these ovens up while they’re hot.

Specifications Of The Bertazzoni Master Series

Specifications of the Bertazzoni Master Series

The Bertazzoni Master Series has been manufactured for longevity and quality. Let’s take a look at the specifications of this range.

When it comes to the gas burners, the burner type is aluminum. Soft touch knobs control the gas burners that sit on stainless steel. Stainless steel has also been used to manufacture the rest of the Bertazzoni Master Series range.

The electric stoves in this range are controlled with an electric broiler. All handles and legs on the Bertazzoni Master Series range are also made out of stainless steel.

The main oven functions across the entire range include the conventional bake, broil, defrost and dehydrate. With the heat-assisted fan, there is a balance of air flow which ensures an even heat distribution.

You may also adjust the burners with one hand, making it more practical. It’s also child-proof because it requires you to press down first before turning.

The Bertazzoni Master Series also have a Thermocouple safety system that will automatically stop the flow of gas should your flame go out – even when electric power is not available.

Looking At The Quality Of The Bertazzoni Master Series

So, what is it about the Bertazzoni Master Series that make it stand out when it comes to quality?

This oven range is most popularly available in stainless steel. However, you may also purchase it in other colors, including a sleek black – depending on the rest of your kitchen. Another advantage to this particular type of stainless steel is that it’s finger-print resistance.

The Bertazzoni Master Series doesn’t come with a high back guard. Back guards are often garish in appearance and can easily get in the way of other aesthetic aspects of your kitchen. The Bertazzoni Master Series will seamlessly assimilate with the rest of your appliances.

The Bertazzoni Master Series offers an extensive range of sizes, depending on how much room you’ve got in your kitchen. You can start off small at 24 inches and go all the way up to 48 inches. The 48-inch range also comes with a full size electric griddle.

The Master Series edition of Bertazzoni’s Italian appliances has appearance in mind. With larger, stainless steel knobs and a range of colors to choose from, you are able to experience the best of both worlds.

This oven range is both professional and visually appealing. Let’s take a look at the pricing of the Bertazzoni Master Series.

Comparing The Bertazzoni Master Series With Verona

  • The useful auxiliary oven, without fan, has a special low temperature setting
  • The main extra large oven has balanced air-flow dual convection fans and gas broiler
  • One piece cooktops and edge to edge tempered inner oven glass make cleaning easy

Again, for the sake of continuity, we’re going to look at the Bertazzoni Master Series gas oven range to compare.

First, let’s discuss the Bertazzoni Master Series:

Now, we’ll look at the Verona gas oven series:

While the Verona VEFSGE365N has more storage for extra kitchen utensils, the Master Series MAST305DFM has a higher gas burner output. The Master Series also has a larger oven capacity.

The Master Series also has an LP conversion kit included in the ensemble, whereas the Verona does not. It would appear based on this comparison that you get what you pay for when it comes to quality.

While the Master Series may be slightly more expensive, it’s potentially worth it for a higher quality gas oven. You want to make sure that your appliance is going to last the distance and sometimes investing in this pays off.

Comparing The Bertazzoni Master Series With Thor Kitchen

When it comes to comparing Thor Kitchen against the Bertazzoni Master Series, there are subtle differences that can make or break the decision to purchase.

The burner output is slightly higher in set two and three of the Thor Kitchen HRD3606U. However, in set one, the Master Series takes the prize.

This Thor Kitchen model also has six burners as opposed to five on the Master Series. However, quantity doesn’t always equal quality. We believe that the heavier appearance makes the Thor Kitchen model harder to assemble and not as aesthetically pleasing.

You want an oven that’s going to be easy to move should you need to. It’s also a good idea to have legs on an oven – it makes it easier to clean. Ease of use goes to the Master Series in this comparison.
