  • Fits in small spaces
  • Heats up quickly
  • Cooks evenly
Cons
  • Small capacity
  • Limited features

Bottom line

The Frigidaire FGB24L2 is a 24-inch single gas oven with a small capacity of 3.2 cubic feet. It gets great reviews for its cooking performance and ease of use. It's reported as especially easy to clean. It's a good option for those who are limited on space, but it is not big enough to accommodate large dishes or a lot of different items. The oven is also very basic and lacks convenient features.

Performance

Gets the job done with little fanfare. The Frigidaire FGB24L2 garners praise from dozens of reviewers at AJMadison.com and Buzzillions.com for its cooking performance. Owners say it heats up quickly, bakes evenly and is easy to clean. It is a very basic oven, however, and lacks features found in higher-end models, including convection heating and keep-warm settings. We also saw several complaints about the gas hookup, which is in an awkward spot making the oven tricky to install.

Capacity/size

Not the best for a crowd. The 24-inch Frigidaire FGB24L2 gas oven has a capacity of only 3.2 cubic feet.  Several users like the smaller size since it fits easily into a small kitchen, although we did see a few complaints that full-size roasting pans and cookie sheets will not fit in it. It has four rack positions and comes with two oven racks. The broiler is in a separate compartment below the oven.

Features

Bare bones. The Frigidaire FGB24L2 is a very simple and basic gas oven without all of the features found on pricier models. Its only features are variable broil and an electronic clock and timer. The wall oven is available in white, black or stainless steel and has a one-year warranty.
