Bottom line

The Maytag CWE5800AC is a double electric wall oven that is designed to fit into small kitchens. It's only 24 inches wide and is fairly basic when it comes to convenient features, lacking convection, keep-warm and Sabbath modes. However, for those who only need a good, solid basic oven, this is a great choice with high ratings for accuracy.


Bare bones but performs well. Users at, and say the Maytag CWE5800AC is easy to use, heats up quickly and has accurate temperatures. Furthermore, most say that it does an excellent job of baking and broiling. One owner at says, "All my cooking has been uniform, browns well ..." Many love that the oven doesn't overheat the kitchen, but several say the cooling fan runs constantly and is loud. This is a common complaint about wall ovens in general, however.


Not for large portions. Several owners say the Maytag CWE5800AC is the only oven they could find to fit their existing cabinet cutout. Many love the convenience of a dual oven -- even in a tight space. The drawback is that the oven is fairly small inside; one reviewer says it will only fit a turkey that is 15 pounds or less. The wall oven has a total 5.2-cubic-foot capacity -- 2.8 in the upper oven and 2.4 in the lower. It has four rack positions in the upper oven and comes with two racks. The lower oven has three rack positions and comes with one rack.


Convenience on top, simplicity on bottom. Most of the Maytag CWE5800AC's convenience features are located in the upper oven. The lower oven is more basic, with simple rotary knobs for the temperature control. The upper oven has electronic controls, a self-cleaning mode and a cook-and-hold option. There is only one light switch for both ovens, which is a minor nuisance to some owners. The CWE5800AC has broiling and delay-start modes in the upper oven, but lacks convection, keep-warm and Sabbath modes. It's available in white and black, or stainless steel for an additional $300, and comes with a one-year warranty.
