In order to be featured on Topten, ovens must comply with EU Energy labelling regulation No 65/2014 as well as with the following Topten criteria:

  • Energy Efficiency Index rating of EEI < 82 (corresponding to an A+ rating)
  • Energy consumption per cycle for fan heating of < 0.70 kWh
  • Energy consumption per cycle for convection heating of < 0.90 kWh
  • Models with a pyrolytic cleaning feature are not eligible

Ecodesign minimum rating

The current minimum energy rating of an electric oven that can be placed on the market is the B class.


Best available technology

The most efficient electric ovens currently on the market achieve the A++ class.

Glossary

Brand and Model. A click on the column of a product shows the detailed view.

Volume (l). Usable volume of the cavity in litres (l).

Energy class. Energy efficiency class according to the EU Energy Label (regulation No. 65/2014). The classification scale is based on the EEI. For class A+ an EEI below 82 is required.

Energy (kWh). Energy consumption per cycle in kWh/cycle for both heating functions (if available):

  • Conventional
  • Fan-forced convection

EEI. Energy Efficiency Index (EEI) according to the Energy Labelling regulation No 65/2014. More efficient ovens have a lower EEI. The EEI calculation is based on the energy consumption of a cycle in conventional mode or with fan-forced convection, whichever the lower, and the cavity volume.
