Three-in-one oven offers kitchen planning options

The Thermador Triple Combination Oven can shoehorn an oven, a microwave, and a warming drawer into even the tightest of kitchens, freeing up both floor and counter space for better uses.

Triple Combination Oven Thermador

For some kitchens, finding a spot for every appliance you want can be difficult; an oven can take up a surprising amount of floor space and a microwave can monopolize counter space. And setting the microwave on top of the range is just asking for trouble.

Or is it? Thermador's Triple Combination Oven implies otherwise. This appliance is a microwave, oven, and warming drawer, all in one. You'll still need a cooktop to go with it--Thermador's line of induction cooktops are a nice match if you're shopping--but the Triple Combination Oven has the potential to free up a lot of space in your kitchen. It comes in a variety of sizes, up to the Professional Series, with 4.7 cubic feet of capacity.

The professional model is, admittedly, overkill for the average kitchen. Something along the lines of the 27-inch model might fit a bit better. Either way, you'll get the full line of features, including one of the fastest self-cleaning modes available in an oven (just two hours to a spotless appliance).

The Triple Combination Ovens all have price tags of more than $4,000. Along with a great appliance, you're buying the Thermador name and the quality that goes with it.
