An oven is a device or a machine that comprises of a heated enclosure designed for heating, baking or drying of different materials. An Electric Oven is a type of an oven comprised of a high resistance heating element which is normally a coil or plate depending on the nature of the electric oven used and operates in the heating of materials when an electric current is passed through the coils. This implies that an electric oven produces heat when a current of specific voltage is applied on these plates where due to the resistance nature it results in heat generation of high temperatures.
The most important components of an electric oven which functions to give a combined effort of heat production are diodes, resistors and transistors which all make a simple circuit transmitting current to the coil heating up an enclosure of an oven chamber hence heating a material placed within it.
Electric ovens are used in different fields for different purposes basing on the respective functionality of where it is applied. They are used in disciplines like medical laboratories in matters to do with heating of solutions and drying of some laboratory equipment or minor tools, they are also used in medical outfits in sterilization of metallic tools and equipment, used in schools and food industries for food warming and also in restaurants to ensure that quality foodstuffs are delivered to customers.
Evenly distribution of heat throughout the oven chamber in electric ovens makes it easy to be used and be regarded as the most preferred choice. The temperature distribution is throughout the cavity and is mainly assisted by the fan which functions to circulate the air within the heating chamber hence ensuring uniformity of the temperatures within. Heat consistent is maintained in electric ovens hence also suitable for bakers to use it for bread and cake-making that requires quite some time.
The two electric heating elements for electric oven, which is one at the bottom of the oven cavity and the other one at the upper part of the oven cavity which is mostly used for browning food is a feature that makes it more useful in its operation and full capability to multitask. The oven is also fitted with a temperature sensor in its cavity connected directly to the thermostat and its role is to regulate the temperature within the oven. This is a feature that is more important in ensuring that the desired quantity of heat is only applied or reached during the performance of the electric oven.
Installation of electric ovens is much cheaper and simpler as it only involves connecting the oven on to an existing electrical grid within a home. This implies that little labour is required for the process and shorter time is required for the entire process of installation and at the same time being cheaper in purchase compared to other types of the oven with the same size.
Energy efficiency for electric ovens is an important feature that makes them be most preferred as they convert a greater percentage of energy it consumes to usable energy. This is more important enough to ensure that energy is conserved and the used amount is utilized adequately within the chamber.
