The Frigidaire Gallery FGET3065PF (MSRP $2,699.00) is one of the more affordable double wall ovens on the market, and based on our tests it's also one of the best. Of course, since it combines two appliances in one machine, it isn't cheap, so even a sale price of $2,250 on this Frigidaire is still a good deal.

Despite a hefty price tag and a few performance hiccups we uncovered in our tests, the American-made FGET3065PF is an excellent choice for those looking for a double oven. Features like steam cleaning, a fast preheat, and two substantially-sized 4.6-cubic-foot ovens round out this fantastic Frigidaire.

Design & Usability

It will match any aesthetic.

While design magazines might highlight "pro-style" ranges or sleek, European appliances, this double wall oven fits squarely into the "transitional" design aesthetic. We think transitional design is the smarter buy for most consumers. It's more likely to fit in with an existing kitchen, and it's less likely to offend when it comes time to sell your home.

The oven controls are well laid out and easy to follow, with the upper oven's controls on the left and the lower oven's on the right. The only major functionality issue we had with this Frigidaire was a pair of stubborn doors. They were both difficult to open and had a tendency to slam shut when not fully opened.

Outside, the oven is encased in smudge-proof stainless steel that we found to be more resistant to fingerprints than other surfaces we've tested. However, be aware that it's a bit darker than most other stainless exteriors. Both ovens feature steam cleaning, which means users can choose a quicker, odor-free cleaning experience for minor messes.

Oven, Broiler, & Convection

Excellent performance overall

Overall the FGET3065PF's two ovens did well in our tests. Both ovens excelled in the area of speed: The broilers took a spiffy six minutes to reach 606°F, and should have you grilling up a storm in no time. Both ovens took a remarkably quick eight minutes to preheat from room temperature to 350°F. The FGET3065PF also features a Quick Preheat mode, but considering our test results, it almost seems redundant.

To get a clearer indication of just how well the FGET3065PF performs, we put it through our real-world cooking tests. We baked two batches of cookies—one in each oven—and in the case of both batches we observed that the cookies in the center and left corner were slightly overdone when compared with those in the front and right corners. This may indicate some heat loss through the oven doors. The cookies in the center were almost carbon copies on one another, indicating excellent temperature consistency. Furthermore, each individual cookie was evenly baked from top to bottom.

We also cooked four cakes—two for each oven. As with the cookies, the cakes in the upper oven were slightly overdone toward the left, but cooked evenly on top and bottom. In the lower oven, cakes were overdone on the bottom. That can be fixed by sticking with a light-colored pan for baking.

Know What You're Buying

Twice as nice, just watch out for a sale price.

If you've never purchased a double wall oven before, you may not realize just how expensive they are. On sale, this Frigidaire's competitors range from $1,700 to upwards of $5,000, and this Frigidaire's MSRP falls around $2,700. But we found the FGET3065PF on sale for $2,250, which seems reasonable for a double wall oven that offers rapid preheats, some welcome features, and the comfort of knowing that it can handle any food you cook in it.
