A double oven makes life easier because it gives you more than just food. In a deflated housing market, kitchen renovations still yield the highest return on your investment. There's also a great deal of "value in use," the benefits that you, the owner and cook, glean from using a double oven.
A double oven is not just an addition to your kitchen; it's an upgrade because it is a more modern appliance with better features. Some options available include heat-distributing sensors, one-touch controls, removable doors and porcelain-coated racks for easier cleaning, automatic turn-off function, multiple cooking modes and LED displays. So not only will you have more time and more space, you'll have all the latest bells and whistles.
A double oven also gives you more quality time with your family and friends, whether entertaining or simply preparing a family meal. You can spend more time outside the kitchen, chatting with guests or hanging out with your family, rather than sweating it in front of the oven.
So, a modern, more functional kitchen; smart dollars invested in your home and more time to spend with family are -- as Mastercard would say, priceless.
