help finding 27/30" gas wall oven

i'm looking to find some manufacturers of gas wall ovens in either 27 or 30". seems like everywhere i look all i find are 24" models. the only one i have found is a jenn air thats 30", but it only comes in black and white, and we need stainless. anyone who can help me here? i'd prefer 27", but can make 30" work with a small bit of effort.

before i go, if the selection of gas stoves is going to be limited in sizing...why must it be the smallest?

If wall oven cabinet opening is larger than 24", look for a model that offers a trim kit. These trim out the gap between oven and cabinet face frame.

size has more to do with capacity of the oven itself, not the space it can fit. 24" seem to be very undersized as far as cu ft. go.

have any brands in mind?

Wall ovens are available in 24", 27" and 30" widths. Size of existing oven cabinet and opening are relevant to selecting oven size. As indicated, trim kits are available with some models. Of course, it's important to choose a size oven that meets the household's needs. A 27" or 30" offers greater capacity than a 24" oven. Check at the big home centers, Lowe's, Sears, and the super-size home furnishing stores where you will likely find more options in size and finish.

i was trying to say that the size of the space where it will be located is not a factor. we're doing a remodel and any size can be used, and we'd prefer a larger oven, either 27 or 30", and gas is preferred since the location is right near an existing line. they seem to be all but impossible to find. i've seen no 27" at all, and the only 30" model, from jenn air, is only available in black and white. i've been googling like crazy, checking the manufaturer web sites, ect. i'm starting to think that unless i buy some crazy high end unit i'm going to have to suck it up and run a new line and install an elctric unit.

is there anyone who could ofer suggestions as to why this situation seems to be? why the preponderance of 24" gas wall ovens over the other "standard" sizes?

Are you wanting a wall oven unit that goes in a wall oven cabinet? Or, are you wanting a gas stove with an oven in it? If the latter, 30" is standard because that is how much space you leave in a kitchen design for a standard gas range with oven in it.

i'm not looking for a range, i'm looking for a wall oven.

also, its going to be within the wall itsself, not framed withina cabinet.

so far still nothing much new has been found. i came accross an amana that would be great...a gas double oven, 27", stainless...except i belive its been discontinued. heres the model info: Amana AOGD2750 . i went amana website and have list of retailers around my area, gonna make some calls tomorrow to see if theres any chance i can find one of these.

again, any help with brands and models would be great.

I sent you you a private message as to some brands, unfortuanetly they are higher end than what you would find at a local appliance or big box stores.

Good Luck,

hey, i received the message, and those won't work ( even if i had the dough! ). with the exception of the viking 36", there are no gas wall ovens made. and 36" is actually too big. can't be worked, even if i was inclined to drop that money. wolf and thermador, the other two seem to be strictly electric.

thanks for the effort, but i actually mentioned that model in my initial post. it doesn't come in stainless, only black and white ( which is an odd thing for sure ).
