How Much Does An Oven Weigh?

Wondering how heavy is an oven? You’re not alone! In this section, I’ll guide you through the average weight of ovens based on their types.

#1 Oven Range

First, in this oven weight guide, let’s discuss oven ranges.

Oven ranges are equipped with a stove on top and are commonly found in many kitchens, especially older ones.

I find that the weight of an oven range varies depending on its size and features.

For example, a basic oven range that doesn’t have any smart technology weighs about 125 pounds. On the other hand, a smart oven packed with many additional features will probably weigh closer to 250 pounds.

Oven ranges can weigh between 125-250 pounds roughly.

If you want an oven that can handle the basics without taking up much space, try getting an oven range.

#2 A Toaster Oven

When it comes to oven weight, toaster ovens are definitely the most lightweight option!

A typical toaster oven weighs about 25 pounds. They come in all shapes and sizes, so you can customize them to meet your needs. They are significantly lighter than a standard oven as they sit on the counter.

So, my usual advice for those with a small family and kitchen is to get a toaster oven. It can also help you toast bread, bagels, and other food items.

#3 Wall Oven

Now, let’s talk about wall ovens’ weight.

Wall ovens typically weigh around 80 to 180 lb and won’t take up any walking space in your kitchen. Remember, the oven weight will vary depending on its size and features.

For example, an economy wall oven is relatively small and inexpensive. From what I’ve seen, it typically weighs approximately 75 lb and is a good example of a single basic wall oven.

On the other hand, there are more advanced wall ovens that come packed with a wide variety of features. For instance, a smart wall oven from LG with many features weighs significantly more, coming in at close to 160 lb. 

#4 Double Wall Oven

When talking about oven weight, a double-wall oven can be heavier, as it usually weighs between 150 and 250 pounds.

You see, a double wall oven has two separate cavities stacked on top of each other that allow you to cook two separate dishes at different temperatures.

Similar to single-wall ovens, you can install them directly into the wall. Unfortunately, they can weigh more due to their additional capacity and features.

Despite the fact that double-wall ovens tend to be heavier, I recommend them for homeowners who love to entertain.

#5 Commercial Oven

Among different ovens, commercial ones stand out for their significant weight, making them the heaviest option.

Commercial ovens are heavier because they have been specifically designed to handle a large amount of food. They can weigh up to 500 pounds!

Unless you run a restaurant or are a professional chef, you will probably not need a commercial oven; however, it’s a good option to check out if you require a larger capability. 

If you require more than one commercial oven, you can also purchase a double oven. I find that buying multiple units at the same time gets you a better deal.

Tips For Moving an Oven

Now that you know how much an oven weighs, it’s important to learn how to move it safely.

An oven can be very heavy, so I don’t recommend moving it on your own. If you don’t use the right precautions, you could get hurt and damage the oven.

Before moving the oven, you must take measurements to ensure the oven will fit. It’s worth noting that if you have a toaster oven, measuring the space is probably unnecessary, as it will just sit on the counter. On the other hand, if you do not take measurements before you purchase an oven, you could be in for a rude surprise when the oven arrives.

If you are moving your oven on your own, follow these tips:

  • Always see if you can get the oven delivered and installed for free with your purchase. A lot of big box stores will do this for you.
  • If you are moving your oven without the help of professionals, make sure to use a dolly so you don’t need to carry your oven on your own.
  • When it does come time to move the oven, lift it with your legs instead of your back.
  • Use gloves to help you strengthen your grip and protect your hands.

Spraying glass cleaner in the kitchen floor can also help you slide out your oven in a much easier way!
