Whirlpool WOS92EC0A Review

Best single electric wall oven

Pros
  • Excellent performance
  • Large viewing window
  • Convection cooking
Cons
  • Long preheat cycle
  • Slightly inaccurate temperatures
  • Some complaints of self-cleaning related failures

Bottom line

The Whirlpool WOS92EC0A is a full-size wall oven that gets great reviews for even baking and outstanding performance at broiling and convection cooking. Owners say it's a bit noisy but is a great overall value. It has a good number of extra features as well, such as a covered baking element and a handy convection conversion feature.

Breaking it down

Performance

Strong performance. The Whirlpool WOS92EC0A was the top choice in an independent test of wall ovens, where it excelled at both broiling and baking jobs. Editors at Reviewed.com say the 30-inch electric wall oven performs decently in most categories -- the keep-warm setting is especially accurate -- but say it takes a bit too long to preheat. Owners give the wall oven high ratings for even baking and its sleek, attractive design. Many say the oven cooks food quickly -- likely due to the convection-cooking mode.

Capacity/size

More capacity in the same amount of space. Users and experts praise the large capacity of the Whirlpool WOS92EC0A. It boasts a large five-cubic-foot capacity and a large viewing window on the door. The Whirlpool wall oven has six rack guides and comes with three racks. It is covered by the Whirlpool FIT system guarantee, which promises that it fit into the same space as a comparable (height and width) wall oven that it's replacing.

Features

Good convenience features. The Whirlpool WOS92EC0A has several convenient features, including a covered baking element for easy cleanup, a convection conversion feature (which converts standard baking times and temperatures to convection equivalents) and a steam-cleaning option. One professional test found the self-steam-clean mode to be powerful enough to clean up "tough" messes, though the oven's overall self-cleaning performance -- and reliability -- is also the source of some of the relatively few negative owner reviews we spotted. Other features include convection bake, convection broil, delayed cooking and Sabbath modes as well as delayed-cooking and keep-warm options. It's available in stainless steel, white ice, black and black ice.
