Are double ovens worth the extra $$?

I need an oven for a home purchase. The double gas ovens seem to be over $1000 to start while the single ovens can be had for as little as $300. Anybody think the extra cost is worth it if I prefer to cook for one most of the time?

Unless your going to cook for a lot of people or just love cooking, I would bet that a double oven would be overkill for you.

I was thinking about the energy cost savings for using the small oven most of the time. BTW, I was referring to a range if not obvious.

You're not going to recover a $700 purchase price difference. Cooking for one, a single oven is fine. The double oven really comes in handy with big projects like making many batches of xmas cookies or cooking for a party.

Buy a toaster oven at a thrift shop. There are usually many appliances there waiting to be adopted into a good home for a few dollars.

You can do very well with a toaster oven.
