Among the many models of ovens available today, there is one that seduces more and more cooks, tired of burning at each opening: the oven drawer or drawer. Presentation.
What is a drawer oven?
The drawer oven has everything from a basic oven. The only difference lies in opening the door. Here she slides on two rails allowing simplified access to the cooking dishes arranged on the drawer. The drawer oven can also be opened and closed remotely using a remote control.
The drawer oven is available with convection heat or natural convection, with catalysis or pyrolysis walls, or with manual cleaning... In other words, like all basic ovens. The sliding door can only be an accessory that adds to a traditional model.
Advantages and disadvantages of the drawer oven
The drawer oven offers for many many benefits. The first is that he greatly limits the risk of burnsespecially when it opens and closes at a distance. A definite advantage if you have children. The oven drawer also limits any risk of dropping a dish because of grid that topples. Here, from the opening of the oven you have access to the dish to get out easily, without the risk of dropping it. Ideal also for watering meat during cooking.
Unfortunately this practical drawer also has disadvantages. Mainly, cooking on several levels is more complex with a drawer oven. To reach the last grid, you will have to remove the dishes from above.
Another thing: it is not not convenient to clean a drawer oven. At least, this exercise requires some flexibility. As a result, it is preferable to opt for a pyrolytic or catalysis oven, ie self-cleaning.
For a Catalytic Drawer Oven Model, you will need to rely approximately 800 €; for a pyrolysis model, about 600 €; and for a manual cleaning drawer model, you will need to rely on 300 €.
Last detail: when installing, remember the distance needed to open the oven to facilitate travel in the kitchen.
