What to Look For When Buying a Cooker in Kenya

Updated: Mar 27

Are you one of those people who relaxes in cooking, and could you spend an entire afternoon in the kitchen?

Or do you prefer fast execution, and your meat is just as juicy? Knowing the different built in oven options, depending on the type of cooking, will help you with your choice.

You will be surprised by the possibilities!

Induction Cookers

We could say that Newmatic built-in induction cooker hobs are lifelong hobs. This cooktop heats through electromagnetic energy produced by a copper coil placed under the cooktop. It only works with induction (magnetic) compatible cookware.

Induction cookers are gaining more popularity in the market today. They are much faster and safer compared to gas or ordinary electric cooktops. This is because heat is transferred directly to the cookware without heating the cooktop first.

Multi-function Ovens

The ovens or turbo multi-function are the natural evolution of the conventional oven. Currently, because of its versatility in cooking day-to-day recipes, they are a trendsetting device.

As manufacturers, we have been including functions that give greater ease in cooking and bring professional kitchens to our homes.

Usually, all multi-function ovens have a grill and incorporate a convection system. It's robust: It has many cooking programs, the most varied.

Each time, they include a more significant number of functions such as steam function, combination of steam with heat, slow roast, fermentation, wood oven function… and many more.


In these types of multi-function ovens, those with microwave and steam functions reach the market as an innovation in the kitchen. We tell you all the advantages of having each of them at home:

Ovens with Microwave function

This type of oven is generally smaller and combines microwave cooking with the conventional oven. In this way, cook food inside and out at the same time. They are faster than conventional and have a lower power consumption. 

Thanks to the combination of a conventional program with the microwave function, you can significantly shorten the preparation time and, depending on the dish, save up to 30% of the time.

Another advantage is space saving.

They are more energy efficient than electric ones, but they are less common at the time of installation since, initially, they are much more expensive, but in the long run, they come to mind if the oven is used enough.

One of the differences between the two would be, for example, the humidity level; the gas oven produces more humid heat than the electric one, preventing food from drying out.

Gas hobs are greener than electric ones; natural gas emits less greenhouse gases during combustion. An example of these cooker hobs in Kenya would be this model.

At Newmatic, you can choose between these three types of ovens, but to choose the one that best suits your needs, you must also take into account other essential details such as the dimensions, the functions you need to make your favorite recipes, the design that best suits you, or even the type of door opening. Here, we talk a little more about all of them!

What measurements exist?

Ovens are 60 cm high, the most common measure of 45 cm high ovens.

They are called built-in ovens, which share virtually the same functions and benefits as their older siblings. Still, they are specially designed to occupy less space in the kitchen and even incorporate various cooking techniques (microwaves and steam).

Choose the oven design that fits your kitchen

In addition to all the aspects we have already explained, you can also find different oven designs at Newmatic. So it is much easier to choose the one that fits the kitchen you are looking for. Which of these two do you prefer?

Crystal Series ovens have an elegant finish in three colors (white, black, or anthracite gray) that perfectly fit the new design trends. The advantages of this material are, on the one hand, aesthetic, since it combines with the rest of the appliances of the same series, and functional since the glass is super easy to clean.

Steel Series ovens: this material is a classic that never goes out of style. It is a perfect finish that gives elegance to the kitchen, and it combines excellently with other Newmatic kitchen appliances.

Choose the best features

Do you already have more or less clear what kind of oven you need? For a perfect choice, you have to take into account some final details:

Functions: Newmatic ovens are designed to suit all tastes. They have between 5 and 12 different functions so that you can choose according to the use you will give it.

If you are looking for an oven with complete equipment, you can choose one of these models, with which you will even get roasted at the perfect point thanks to the Thermoset, always with the certainty that the temperature inside the food is adequate.

Do you want your oven to clean itself?

Thanks to pyrolysis, many of the Newmatic models are cleaned automatically without any effort, removing the remains of ash when cleaning is finished.

In addition, the assistant will also give you a hand in making cleaning a little easier in your day-to-day life. It is a fast, simple, and ecological method that only needs water with a bit of soap to soften the dirt and make it easier to remove.

Do you like both options? With these kiln models, it is no longer necessary to choose between pyrolysis and aqualysis since they include both.

Type of door: the way to open your oven is also more critical than it seems, and that's why in Newmatic, you can choose between two options. You can choose an oven with a removable door, which moves outwards parallel to the floor.

Another option is a furnace with a hinged door, which is sure to be much more familiar and is perfect if you install the oven in a column. In the image, you can better see the difference between the two.

Remember that multi-function ovens incorporate many features through different functions, such as automatic cleaning systems or special cooking programs. As well as premium designs and control via display, this makes us move in a wide range of prices.
