  • Oven used by Nigella

    Dear Nigella Team, My mum is thinking about re-doing her kitchen and needs a new oven. She is thinking about built in oven's so she doesn't have to bend down. We've noticed that you use built in ovens on your programs. Could you tell us what make you use and what size? She wants to be able to fit a large turkey in there for Christmas and so far we have encountered problems with various models being too small. Could you help us out?? Many thanks Amy

    From the nigella team:

    Nigella's built in ovens are made by a US company called Viking who make professional style cooking equipment for the home. They come in 27-inch and 30-inch widths but both are pretty cavernous. The built in versions are usually electric and come with a convection function. For models and UK distributors of the equipment go to the Viking website:


    Wolf is another US manufacturer of professional style equipment and they also do large 30-inch width built-in ovens which are available in the UK and can be found on the website below:
