The KitchenAid Architect II KEBS207SWH is a double wall oven, meaning it has two full-size ovens. Both ovens have capacities of 4.3 cubic feet, but only the upper oven has the popular convection feature, which utilizes fans to circulate hot air around the oven. Reviewers say this electric oven cooks quickly and evenly, and they praise its many convenient features, including a self-cleaning mode, temperature probe and a bread-proofing setting, which allows you to proof bread dough in the oven. User reviews for this wall oven are scarce, but one owner complains that the oven takes a long time to preheat. Another mentions that the oven breaks down when the self-cleaning cycle is used, but there are not enough user reviews available to determine how widespread that problem may be. Double ovens take up a lot of wall space, but the GE Profile PT925DNBB (*Est. $2,200) includes two smaller ovens in the space of a single unit.
