Whether you’re someone who enjoys cooking for the whole family or someone who prefers an oven that’s easy to clean, our buying guide will help lead you to the built-in oven that's perfect for you and your everyday needs.
If you’re re-designing your kitchen or thinking about upgrading your built-in oven, the size and capacity of your new oven is one of the first things you should be considering. Read on to find out how each type of oven could suit your everyday needs.
Built-in single ovens are just the cooking appliance to carry out most everyday cooking tasks:
Built-in compact ovens are ideal when space is at a premium:
Built-in double ovens are excellent for when there are many mouths to feed, allowing you to cook more than one dish at the same time:
Perfect for creating a smart, minimalist look in your kitchen, built-under double ovens are designed to be installed under island units. On the whole, the differences between built-in and built-under ovens are fairly minor. The only difference between built-in ovens and built-under ovens is that built-under ovens are installed closer to the floor. For more information, explore our full range of built under double ovens or read our dedicated FAQ which outlines the differences between our built-in and built-under ovens .
The width and depth of all our ovens remain the same; 59.4cm wide and 56.7cm deep, so you’ll just need to check the height in the section above. If you are replacing your oven, measure that to give you an idea of what your new oven’s size should be.

Now that you’ve decided on the size and capacity you need in your oven, it’s time to think about the type of oven you want to purchase. Here are the 3 oven types explained for you:
If you’re more of a traditional home cook, a conventional oven is ideal. Heat comes from the top and bottom heating elements, operating without a fan to circulate the heat. This provides a traditional style of cooking with hot air rising to the top of the oven.
If you do a lot of batch baking or often find yourself cooking different foods at the same temperature, a fan oven is the one for you. Heat is distributed evenly throughout the oven thanks to a fan (or in some cases multiple fans), being placed close to the heat source.
Okay, so you’ve selected the size and type of oven you want in your kitchen, now it’s time to give some thought to the aesthetic and practicality of your oven, namely its colour and display.
Depending on the overall look and feel of your kitchen, selecting the right colour for your oven can really help elevate your kitchen’s design. Beko’s range of built-in ovens comes in stainless steel, black and white, including stainless steel finishes.
We understand how helpful it is to be able to easily track the cooking time of your food as well as to be able to set the perfect cooking temperature and time. Most of our built-in ovens come with touch screen displays, offering 3 different types for you:
Preparing your food ahead of time has never been easier, thanks to our easy to use, touch control LED display that offers precise cooking times. For added safety, the display features a lock programme, perfect for preventing curious little fingers from altering the oven’s settings.
Perfect for achieving excellent cooking results every time, this stylish oven features a combination of a modern touch screen and a classic mono-dial display. Select the perfect cooking function from the animated LED display or from mono-dial, and use the mono-dial to set the timer and precise temperatures for your meal.
Achieving excellent cooking results at home has never been simpler, thanks to our animated LED display. Choose the perfect temperature, cooking time and tray position on the easy to use screen. You can even use the dials to select a suitable cooking function for your weekly family dinner.
The next factor you should consider when buying a built-in oven is how easy it is to clean. Cooking is a fun and enjoyable experience, but we understand how frustrating it is to spend hours scrubbing your oven clean afterwards. We’ve developed a host of self-cleaning and easy-clean solutions to help you save time in the kitchen.
The oven heats up to a super-hot 480°C turning grease to ash, and then all you have to do is use a damp cloth to wipe clean. Explore our full range of self-cleaning, pyrolytic ovens here.
The last, but far from the least, factor that you should consider when you’re looking for a new oven, is the range of extra features that your new built-in oven will come with. Beko’s range of built-in ovens offers a host of helpful and modern special features but here are two of them highlighted:
When space is at a premium but you still want to be able to cook two dishes at the same time, our Split&Cook® technology is perfect for you. It splits the oven in two, allowing you to cook two different dishes at the same time, at two different temperatures, without the blurring of any scents or flavours.
For keen home cooks who love it when their food gets cooked evenly and efficiently, multi-dimensional cooking is ideal. Heat is distributed around the inside of the oven efficiently thanks to a heating element at the top and bottom of the cavity as well as at the back, just in front of the fan.
