An oven is a cooking appliance with a thermally insulated chamber used for cooking, baking or drying food. A stove is an enclosed space in which wood or other combustibles are added and set alight to provide heat to a room or area as well as, sometimes, doubling as an oven. The origins of ovens can be traced back to Ancient Greece, used by traveling armies. The origins of stoves are unknown but thought to have been around since mankind learned to use fire.
