after looking for duck recipes and seeing jamie oliver demonstrate using this oven to make duck i want it so badly

cooking two things at same time at different temperatures?! madness! (in a good way)
its 1500 dollars though, and i only earn about 400 a month (i work part time, and live in mexico)so its not on the cards any time soon
i just love appliances. and im so tired of using a mini oven to cook everything. i feel like im still a student. sigh.

@newname_99: that is so cool. i’ve seen double ovens but not one oven with 2 spaces like that. damn. i just bought a new built in convection oven but only a single.

i couldnt work out if its wholly electric though
our problem with the oven we have (well other than it hasnt been used for 2 years and probably dead now) is there is a problem with the gas pipe or something. the technician says its fine, the oven guy says its fine…but the flame will spontaneously go out and we end up with gas leaking without being lit. so we can either watch it constantly, or risk being blown up!!

@newname_99: Does it go out randomly, or just when you are using two parts of the system, such as two burners?

@newname_99: That’s not normal for modern gas ovens, though. I prefer gas to electric any day, as it heats up faster and heats/cools more evenly.

@crayfish: i think its pretty ancient. Darling Husband explained it didnt work when i moved in 3 years ago so we just stopped using it.
ill have to ask whether it just happened randomly or if it was when two parts were being used
i mentioned the samsung oven to him and he just looked at me like i was nuts and said “youre kidding, why would anyone pay that much for an oven? you can get much cheaper ones its ridiclous. it cooks two things at the same time? but how often would you even use that”

having two temp zones is AMAZING My mom and Mother-In-Law have one and we constantly are using both. Even for regular dinners. IE chicken in one and roasted veggies in another since they both need very different temperatures (375 vs 425)
theirs look more like this though. The bottom oven is full sized (we do a 25 lb turkey in it) and the top is just one rack.
Hmm I think the house we are closing on may have one too. I hope so! I cant remember

Ah I actually saw this oven in a store recently – very nice, but I think we are going to go for a cheaper double oven – one that has a small upper oven with just 1 rack and a larger lower one since we will 90% of the time just be using the small one for everyday meals and that is a lot less space to heat up!

oh Jamie, the way he talks to the camera, it doesn’t even feel like an advert. what a hero.
if I could have any oven, it’d be an AGA. but i’d settle for one of these, too 😉

TO @newname_99: Interesting… I’ve never seen that Oven before… AND it is reasonably priced.
I do know people who have dual-ovens like the model @ThreeMeers: posted… and they love em.
Great for a family / crowd.
With just the two of us… not so practical.
Personally, if I had a big enough house, I’d have a Cooktop, conventional Wall Oven, and a Covection Microwave Oven (sooo love Panasonics Convection Microwaves). Lol, the Panasonic would be my main oven meal prep (especially meats, and large roasts) … so fast. BUT a regular oven would come in handy for Baking and Broiling.
For now all I can do is day dream…

I yearn for the day that I could even consider getting cool new appliances. Stupid apartments.
