Traditional methods of cooking and frying food are now the talks of the past. Baking being a healthier choice is trending. Most importantly baked foods in all forms like bread, cakes, muffins etc. have been drooling people of all ages. OTG is one multipurpose appliance that enables you baking at home with greater ease. In this article, we are going to review the top 10 Oven for baking at home in 2019.

If you are still using difficult methods of baking your food, it’s time to upgrade to multipurpose Oven, Toaster, and Grill (OTG). For those who are trying to find what type and capacity should be a good oven for baking for them, I recommend them reading my article Best Oven to Buy.

Some of the OTG comes with a special grilling accessory which is called Rotisserie. It is a steel base bar that works on motor system to ensure perfect grilling. You must look for Rotisserie if you are going to use OTG for grilling and barbecuing vegetables, cottage cheese, and meat.

Ovens have been in existence since ages and as time progressed, electric ovens took over to the traditional brick ovens. The reasons are obvious:

  • They are less expensive
  • Cost of running an electric oven is less than any brick oven
  • Lightweight and easily movable
  • For baked items, OTG does wonder

Few people like to use their microwave convection for baking, and that does the task pretty well too. However, with Microwave Convection, there is always a limitation of the size, mobility, and results.

Now let’s see who was able to make up to our list of top 10 ovens for baking at home. We will go with small to big in capacity size.

This completes our list of top ovens for baking. If you feel that some more oven should have been listed here, feel free to send your recommendations. We will review your recommendations and if they fit into the criteria, we will include them here on the list.

Note of Caution!

Because every oven is different has the functions and operations differ from brand to brand it is important that you read the instructions manual carefully to get familiar with your oven and its operations. One important you need to watch out for is the variation in the temperature that you set on the dial and the actual temperature inside the oven chamber. Most of the time you will see variation in both of them. I have a Morphy Richard 28-Litre and it is always 20 °C less inside than the temperature on the dial. Whereas my other OTG which is 52L is mostly 30 °C higher than what it is on the dial. I would advise you to buy a decent oven temperature like Rubbermaid commercial oven monitoring thermometer to be always aware of the temperature inside the chamber.

I will now share some of the questions that I have generally got from my baking workshop attendees. These questions will help you clear your doubts regarding the usage of OTG.

FAQ’s on using Ovens for Baking

Question: Every recipe calls for preheating of the OTG. Why do we preheat and for how many minutes we need to preheat?

Answer: Preheating is done to maintain the OTG temperature from the beginning of the baking. If you do not preheat the oven and put your bake, the baked item will spoil by the time the OTG will come to its required temperature. You always preheat your oven for 10 minutes before you bake and at the same temperature that you will use for baking your recipe.

Question: I have a microwave, can I bake in that?

Answer: So if you have microwave convection, yes you can bake. However, there are certain differences in baking in OTG and a Microwave Convection.

  1. Size: The maximum size in a Microwave Convection is 32L. This size is ok if you have a small family, but for a large family, baking could be a tedious task.
  2. Weight: Microwave Convections are a lot heavier and very difficult to move around.
  3. Tin Size: You cannot really bake in square or long tins in a microwave as the glass tray inside the microwave rotates.

Question: Can I bake in a glass bowl in the OTG?

Answer: Technically yes. However, if the bowl is made of poor glass quality, it may crack.

Question: Can I bake in silicon tin in the OTG?

Answer: Absolutely. You can bake in Aluminum Tins, Dutch oven, Silicon Tins, Non-Stick Trays & Tins, and even in Ceramic pans.

Question: Can we reheat in OTG?

Answer: Yes you can. However, the time taken to reheat anything in OTG is going to be higher than reheating it in Microwave.

Question: Can I open the OTG door to check if the baking is proper?

Answer: I recommend not to open the OTG for the initial 10 minutes of baking. After that, you may open the door to check the baking. However, every time you open the OTG door, the heat escapes from the oven and frequently opening the door can lead to recipe failure.

And now that you have bought your oven for baking, you will be looking for what to bake in the oven. Here are a few simple recipes for you to start with.

That’s all for now folks. If you have questions regarding using the OTG oven for baking, leave a comment below and I will address them personally.
