Question DetailsAsked on 2/4/2015

can I get a stove that does not require 220 wiring

I am looking for a very small stove/oven that doesn't require 220.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

1) toaster ovens and countertop convection ovens

2) countertop micro-ovens (microwave/oven combinations as well as convection oven capability) - same size as microwaves

3) gas stoves, which use 110V only for controls and clock and timer and light and such, but gas for all the cooking

4) there are small 110V ovens that can bake and broil - usually installed as a wall-mount or overhead second oven for gourmet kitchens but can be used alone

5) some manufacturers have 110V full size ranges - they commonly take two dedicated circuits to them though because they are pulling same power as a regular 220V stove, just through two cords that are wired to only specific places (oven or burners). There are also small slip-in low-capacity one or two-burner ranges and small ovens. Both types are designed for use in remote areas or boats and trailers/campers/RV's with only 110V feed.

6) countertop single burner units and griddle/hot plates

7) countertop bread making machines - out daughters are enamored of them

8) countertop rotisserie grill/broilers for meats - can do anything you would barbecue, as well as rotisserie cook kabob type things and spitted roasts and birds - generally turkeys up to about 12-14 pounds as well. Our Faberware has gotten heavy use over the years - generally quicker than oven and easier to clean (all dirty parts readily come apart and go in the sink/dishwasher).

Google this search phrase to get started looking at available items - 110V oven - or - 110V range

My recommendation - get a good microwave baking/cooking book like from Sunset, and a crock pot and maybe a countertop grill/rotisserie. We have found that there are very few things you can't do with them as good as with a range, and a lot quicker - though obviously if you are into large turkeys and don't want to precut or bone it to fit microwave you sort of do need an oven. Ditto to full-scale baking, though breadmakers and microwave mug cakes work very well for small servings.

Whatever you choose, be sure before you buy that your circuit can handle what load you are putting on it, taking into account other items on same circuit. Most oven/stove type items from microwaves on up should be on a circuit with no other load on it when in use. For instance, you might have microwave, crock pot, toaster, etc all plugged into same circuit, but should only use one such high-load appliance at a time.

If you problem is that you have 220V service but no 220V lead to the kitchen for a normal range, and you don't like or have gas connection there, there are several prior questions linked below this question about cost to install a 220V circuit to the range location - assuming your circuit box has adequate capacity to handle it.
