With advancing technology and industry, the environmental impacts of production and consumption activities are increasing day by day. These activities significantly affect the rate of natural resource utilization worldwide, and the quantities of industrial waste generated have reached threatening levels for the environment. The white goods sector is one of the areas with a large production volume in the industry. Built-in ovens are important household appliances widely used in modern kitchens. For the users and regulations, effective and efficient cooking are mandatory in oven designs. During cooking process, high temperature occurs on front surface of the oven and for the safe usage of oven, well-insulation is invetiable in door area. In some type of oven designs, ventilation system is used to prevent high temperature on front surface of the oven. Additionally, for effective usage, oven interface area is required to improve with electronic and software designs. Due to aesthetic, safety, cooking performance, energy efficiency, and durability requirements, built-in ovens have a variety of materials. These materials include various components such as metal, glass, ceramic, and plastic. In this study, the components of a built-in oven were introduced, and all materials were separated and weighed from the outermost package to the finest wire, and their recycling potentials were examined. As a result of the study, the percentages of recyclable and non-recyclable material quantities in a built-in oven were clearly presented. This study was supported by Haier Europe Research and Development Center. ORCID NO: 0000-0002-6916-3487
