The cost to install a new oven runs between $350 and $15,000. Most homeowners spend about $2,000 on average for the unit and installation. Factors that impact the total price for installing a new oven include the oven type, its energy source, location in the home, and necessary preparations.

New Oven Costs

Electric stoves are almost always less expensive to buy than their gas counterparts. A lower purchase price is often a sign of higher operating costs because electricity is more expensive than natural gas. Here’s a look at prices for various types of ovens.

Oven TypeAverage Price
Stand-Alone$300 – $1,700
Wall$600 – $4,700
Convection$930 – $2,050
Baking$900 – $33,000
Residential Industrial Quality$3,500 – $20,000

Convection Oven Prices

Convection ovens cost between $930 and $2,050 and have a built-in fan and exhaust system. Hot air circulates throughout the interior, distributing heat evenly and cooking food faster. The fan prevents humidity from building up, and that produces better browning on roasted meats and baked goods. By cooking food more quickly and at a lower temperature, it stays moist. They are more energy efficient than standard ovens.

Baking

Baking ovens are similar to regular models but typically have more space to hold racks of baked goods. Some options will include a convection setting, while others avoid it altogether. Modular deck ovens offer customizable features, and they're easy to get through doorways because they're assembled on site. Bakery ovens feature lighted interiors and glass doors. They also have stone decks that produce the desired consistency of artisan bread. Steam pods prevent food from drying out during the baking process.

  • Professional Models: These big units are designed to cook and bake in large quantities, usually in commercial businesses. They cost anywhere from $2,100 for a Cooking Performance Group, single-deck model that runs on propane to $33,000 for a Blodgett brand full-size double deck electric oven that uses hydrovection technology.

  • Residential Baking Ovens: Many of these are the size of a typical home product with extra room for cakes, breads, and other goodies. The typical price for a single unit is between $900and$4,000. However, it is recommended that if you are willing to purchase an expensive residential model, you should consider instead purchasing a professional model that will be cheaper with the same amount of space and power.

Residential Industrial-Quality Ovens and Ranges

Professional-style ranges cost between $3,500 and $20,000. Powerful burners deliver between 18,000 and 25,000 BTUs. Pro-style ranges are made with gas burners, but dual-fuel models are available for consumers who want to cook with gas on a stove top but use electricity or convection heat for oven cooking. 

The gas cooktop with electric oven models cost an average of about $2,000 more than single power versions. Gas-powered, pro-style ranges usually lack self-cleaning features. Models that come with that feature cost on average $1,000 more than their counterparts. At the onset of the demand for fancier ovens, restaurants were using stoves that were 36-inches deep—too deep to fit between standard cabinets. Industrial stoves are not considered safe options for in-home use because they generate far too much heat and don't have adequate insulation. 

Pro-style appliances give consumers many of the desirable features of industrial stoves, plus features that appeal to residential cooks. With proper maintenance (including cleaning burners after use and regular oven cleaning), a pro-style range should last at least 20-years. Appliance owners will have to replace the electronic burner ignitions several times during the lifetime of their stove. The replacement switches can be costly. Appliance dealers will stock parts for products made by well-known manufacturers, but consumers will have a harder time locating replacement parts for pro-style ranges from less renowned makers.

  • Proofing: These ovens are designed to provide bread dough and other yeast products with the conditions these foods need to rise. Foam insulated walls and doors ensure that humidity levels stay consistent between 55% and 99% and warm temperatures between 70 and 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Rack: These circulate air the way convection ovens do, but also emit steam, making them ideal for baking and roasting. Food rotates as it cooks, something that isn't possible in convection ovens. They have a large cooking capacity and are available in gas and electric models.

Steam Oven

Steam ovens usually cost from $2,000 to $4,000 and are in the more expensive range for ovens. These provide an option to cook food without oil by injecting water into a broiler to create hot, pressurized steam. The steam circulates through the oven, cooking food more quickly than other ovens. This type of oven makes it easy to keep food moist and can cook more than one dish simultaneously.

Pizza Oven

Pizza ovens typically cost between $150 to $4,000 and don’t need preheating to work. These ovens reach high temperatures quickly and can be used indoors or outdoors. Electric pizza ovens are the least expensive, ranging from $150 to $500. On the pricier end, brick pizza ovens cost between $600 to $4,000, depending on the size and features.

Electric vs. Gas Oven and Range Costs

Many factors go into choosing the right oven. Below are some common advantages and disadvantages of each oven type. 

Electric Oven vs. Gas Oven

While a regular electric model usually costs between $600 and $3,500, a gas oven can be anywhere from $600 to $1,500

Electric Oven Pros and Cons:

  • Easy-to-clean surfaces

  • No additional setup costs

  • Can be plugged into any outlet

  • Even distribution of heat

  • Easy to use

  • Easy to tell when on

  • Will work during a power outage

  • Cheaper initial cost

  • Can release gas if not properly used and maintained

  • Requires a gas line

  • Not as technologically advanced; fewer additional features

Electric Range vs. Gas Ranges Cost

Freestanding electric ranges typically cost between $360 to $1,800 compared to gas at $400 to $2,100. There are several benefits and disadvantages to each.

Electric Range Advantages and Disadvantages:

  • Easy-to-clean cooktops

  • Smooth surface provides stability

  • Offer extra features

  • Fast heat-up time

  • Deliver consistent heat

  • Can't use appliance during power outages

  • Ceramic cooktops are highly susceptible to breakage

Gas Range Advantages and Disadvantages:

  • The flame makes it easier to control heat during cooking

  • Shutting off stops cooking immediately

  • Cheaper and cleaner energy source

  • Higher purchase price

  • Rarely comes with a self-cleaning feature

  • Costs more to install fuel lines

  • A vent hood or exhaust system is required for safety

Single vs. Double Oven Costs

The average price of double ovens ranges from $1,250 to $2,500, but can cost as much as $4,000 to $5,000 on the higher end. In comparison, the price of a single oven ranges from $930 to $2,050. While more expensive, double ovens allow you to cook more than one dish at a time. On the other hand, they also use more energy than single ovens and may omit a single broiler. Double oven ranges may not always feature convection in both ovens, an important consideration when purchasing. 

Oven Installation Costs by Mounting

There are different installation costs based on the type of mounting. Read more about each kind in the section below.  

Freestanding Oven

Freestanding ovens range from $500 to $1,600 and are the most common ovens found in kitchens. These are unattached to walls and cabinetry and can be placed anywhere in the kitchen as long as there are the right outlets and hookups available. Freestanding ovens are easiest to replace, as you only need to find another model that matches the width of your previous oven. 

Wall Oven Prices

Wall ovens cost between $600 at the low-end for a single unit, and as much as $4,700 per unit for a feature-packed model. They offer more flexibility in kitchen layouts because they don't require the amount of floor space and precision in counter measurements that freestanding and slide-in stoves do. Most wall models are electric because it's easier for contractors to install the necessary 240-volt outlet than it is to run gas lines to an encasement in the wall. 

They are available in single door models (like the doors on a traditional range), or with French doors. Kitchen designers can create a layout through which wall ovens are in an ideal ergonomic position that eliminates the uncomfortable bending that comes with freestanding and slide-in ranges. Higher end models may include features that allow homeowners to choose between regular cooking and baking methods and convection. These special features drive the cost of units up a lot, especially if you're adding these features to two stacked ovens.

Slide-in Oven

Slide-in ovens cost between $1,100 and $1,300 and are made to fit between kitchen cabinets. Because they’re customized to fit a kitchen space, they cost more than freestanding ovens. Electric models make up the low end of the cost range, while gas models make up the higher end. Slide-in models can be installed in islands or peninsulas to create flexibility in kitchen design. 

Drop-In Oven

Drop-in ovens have an average cost of $1,400 to $1750 and are on the more expensive end of stovetop ranges. These ovens fit into customized cabinetry and are usually installed on kitchen islands. Popular during the 1940s and 1950s, drop-in ovens use a prepared base that features a cabinet front panel at the bottom. Because they require special ordering, there are limited brands that offer them.  

Oven Installation Costs

A straightforward electric oven installation, where a new oven goes into the same place as the old one, costs between $100 and $200 on average. If there is no 240-volt outlet in the area where it will go, an electrician will have to install one. Installation costs vary based on your kitchen's location in the home. A large price consideration (regardless of fuel source) is the distance the oven has to travel from truck to kitchen. The price for a stove or range that's going on the ground floor is cheaper than if it had to be taken up or down stairs. An installation may require additional charges for parts such as gas or electricity line connectors, or ventilation ductwork.

Additional Price Considerations

The cost of an oven installation includes everything from removing and disposing an old appliance to adding or upgrading outlets and utility lines and installing vent hoods when necessary.

  • Labor to install wiring: $260 to $320 for a 240-volt outlet.

  • Adding an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupt Breaker: $65 to $200 for one oven. $525 to $625 for 2. Required for AFCI Circuit Protection.

  • Vent Hood: $180 to $390 for one. Requires about three hours for installation at about $190 to $310.

  • Adding gas lines: $260 to $760.

Industrial/Commercial

Industrial or commercial ovens are used in places that serve many people, such as restaurants or banquet halls. An industrial range is not designed to sit between cabinets. State and local fire and safety codes mandate that establishments must comply with these laws, including venting, placement, and use requirements. They must also pass health department inspections. Before you think about buying this type of appliance, contact a residential kitchen expert to find out if it's safe to use one in your home.

Replacement and Repairs

In most, if not all cases, the price of replacing broken or damaged oven parts is cheaper than the cost of appliance repairs. Replacement parts vary in price, typically between $10 to $450. A component for a budget-friendly brand costs a fraction of what a comparable part for a designer luxury brand. The charge for labor will depend on the amount of time it takes to replace the broken part. The advantage to having a professional install replacement parts is that they bear the responsibility for the quality of the part and the correctness of the work.

  • Electronic Gas Stovetop Igniter: $20 to $200+. Not including labor and parts for a job that should be left to professionals.

  • Coils for stove burners: $10 to $30. Most homeowners can replace their own coils. Be sure you know the brand and model number when purchasing the replacement parts.

  • Doors: Let a technician replace doors; it costs $65 to $400.

  • Door Glass: $50 to $300. Have a professional replace the glass.

  • Drip Pans: $10 to $40.

  • Control Knobs: $10 to $70.

  • Oven Thermostats: $100 to $200 for budget brands and up to $450 for designer models. Hire a professional for replace this.

  • Gaskets: $15 to $45. These are the seals that keep heat inside. They must be installed correctly by a professional for safety and optimal performance.

  • Baking Element: $16 to $90. This is not recommended as a DIY replacement job.

DIY vs. Hiring a Pro

After spending a lot of money on a new range or oven, it's not surprising that some new appliance owners may be tempted to install the stove or oven themselves. It's never a good idea to plunge into an installation that may require the services of a licensed electrician or a gas line installation technician. Take the time to read the warranty to be sure that it doesn't become void if someone other than a technician from an authorized retailer performs the task.

If the installation is merely a matter of removing an old oven to make room for a new one, and the proper electrical outlet, pipes and wiring are already in place, then you can likely do it yourself. If this task is part of a remodeling project where the unit is being relocated, or it involves replacing an electric oven with a gas one, let a professional gas technician install the lines. When you hire appliance professionals, they are responsible for making sure that the connections are safe and that they meet the standards required by building and other codes. If your old unit is working well, consider a simple refresh—refinishing an appliance costs about $300.
