The compact team players…

Becoming increasingly popular thanks to their ability to maintain the maximum flavour and nutritional content of foods such as vegetables and fish. Some models use a combination fan oven and steam, giving excellent roasting results whilst keeping food moist.

If space in your kitchen is an issue and a standard size built-in oven will be too big, compact ovens are a fantastic alternative option. Although smaller in size there is no compromise on cooking performance. Compact ovens still have equally great features and functions as a full-size oven, they are just designed for busy homes short on space. So, don’t feel like you are compromising on quality just because your kitchen space may not allow you to have something bigger.

The De Dietrich DKP7320X built-in pyrolytic multifunction compact oven is 45cm high and boasts a 41-litre capacity. It’s self-cleaning pyrolytic function means scrubbing your oven is a thing of the past. With an A energy rating this is a fantastic energy saving option.
