This part of IEC 60350 specifies methods for measuring the performance of electric cooking ranges, ovens, steam ovens, and grills for household use.
The ovens covered by this standard may be with or without microwave function.
Manufacturers should define the primary cooking function of the appliance – microwave function or thermal heat. The primary cooking function has to be measured with an existing method according to energy consumption. If the primary cooking function is declared in the instruction manual as a microwave function, IEC 60705 is applied for energy consumption measurement. If the primary cooking function is declared as a thermal heat, then IEC 60350-1 is applied for energy consumption measurement.
