The Frigidaire Gallery FGET3065PF (MSRP $2,699.00) is one of the more affordable double wall ovens on the market. Of course, since it combines two appliances in one machine, it isn't cheap. A sale price of $2,250 on this Frigidaire is still a great deal.

Despite a hefty price tag and a few performance hiccups we uncovered in our tests, the American-made FGET3065PF is still a good 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 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

Good performance overall, but we've seen better

Judged on performance alone, the FGET3065PF's two ovens were a bit of mixed bag. 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.

For ovens, our most important test results pertain to accuracy and precision. Accuracy is determined by how often the temperature in the cavity matches the temperature we set the oven to—whether it be 170°F, 350°F, or 450°F. Precision, on the other hand, is determined by how far the temperature strays from that ideal while baking. While the FGET3065PF struggled in both accuracy and precision, both cavities were, for the most part, consistent with one another.

In the Keep Warm setting, both ovens hit very close to the indicated 170ºF, but fluctuated over time. Conversely, the 350°F settings rarely wavered, but the oven overshot 350ºF. Those results were the same when we turned on convection.

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. On the plus side, 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, at a reasonable 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. So, despite its $2,250 sale price, the FGET3065PF is relatively affordable compared to what else is out there.

We've judged it accordingly.

Occasional spotty performance aside, the Frigidaire FGET3065PF is a good wall oven—good enough that we can recommend it based on its features and fast preheat times. Throw in universally appealing looks and a plethora of features, and this wall oven will do the trick.
