The Stars Of Married To Real Estate Have A Stunning Kitchen Feature You'll Want In Your Own Home

HGTV's "Married to Real Estate" stars Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson help families find their dream homes in neighborhoods they never thought they'd live in — while staying within their budget. They renovate parts of the homes that need some love, always finding the best and lowest price for their clients. Every home interior has unique features, but multiple houses have a few of the same elements. One of the features we've noticed in many of their kitchen renovations and the HGTV couple's own home tour was a double oven. In their home, the sleek and elegant appliance is nestled between two stone pillars and surrounded by white cabinetry and marble countertops.

Double ovens aren't typically considered when buying a new oven, but they can come in handy if you often host large gatherings for holidays or special occasions. When you're looking to update your kitchen, new cabinets and countertops can make a difference, but they aren't always necessary. Instead, investing in a double oven could be a better upgrade, as it could add value to your home if you ever decide to sell. Plus, it's an energy and time saver, since you can cook multiple dishes at different temperatures simultaneously. However, there are other factors to consider before buying a double oven.

Pros and cons of a double oven

Cooking multiple dishes for a holiday or birthday party in a single oven takes hours, since you have to have all of the dishes on rotation. As soon as a couple of dishes are cooked, you can put in a couple more and continue swapping until everything is cooked. During the process, some dishes can get cold, so you have to heat them again. Instead, double ovens give you ample space to place multiple dishes inside at once and at different temperatures, allowing you to cook dinner quicker and easier. In addition, these types are often made with special features such as convection cooking, which allows the heat to circulate evenly to ensure everything is fully cooked. Double ovens are luxurious appliances; they'll become the focal point of the kitchen's interior.

However, while they make cooking effortless, they can also take up more space. If you have a smaller kitchen, you might not have enough room for certain types of double ovens, but if there's an appliance you don't use such as a dishwasher, you can always remove it to add room. Measuring your kitchen area before purchasing the appliance is ideal to ensure it fits. Additionally, double ovens cost more than standard ones and typically cost thousands of dollars, depending on the brand and model. If you don't have that kind of money to spend on this appliance, you may want to forgo the double oven. 

Affordable double oven options

If you're ready to upgrade to a double oven, we found some affordable options you can consider for your home, starting with Samsung's Freestanding Double Oven Electric Range with Flex Duo that's typically sold for about $1,550 at The Home Depot. This Samsung model has both an entire oven and split oven, where the door can either open halfway to display the top shelf or fully open to show both shelves. It has various features such as a non-pre-heating air fry setting, temperature control on your smartphone, a self-cleaner, a self-steamer, and various preset buttons. The double oven is available in stainless steel with tinted glass. Overall, customers enjoy this appliance, saying that they love the look of it in their kitchen and enjoy the features.

While the Samsung option has stacked ovens, there are also types with two ovens that sit side-by-side, and this is what the stars of "Married to Real Estate" have in their home. If you're looking for this type, the Forno Galiano Natural Gas Double Oven originally costs about $4,600 at Lowe's. This stainless steel model has a smaller left oven and a larger right one with a convection fan. Most reviews say that this appliance is worth the money, especially since it has such a low price point compared to competitors. However, many complained that the range knobs get hot when the oven is on.
