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.


Strong but loud performance. The Whirlpool WOS92EC0A was the top choice in a recent test of 54 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. Several complain that the fan -- which runs until the oven has cooled completely -- is very loud.


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. One user at HomeDepot.com says, "The interior is much bigger than my last oven in the same wall space. I love the extra rack, large window and bright light." Another says, "I am very impressed with the size of the oven. I can even close the door all the way with a 16-inch pizza with pizza pan." The Whirlpool wall oven has six rack guides and comes with three racks.


A few convenient 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. 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, black and black ice.
