1. A multi-cavity oven comprising:
a housing defining an interior cooking volume subdivided into a set of independent oven cavities where each oven cavity provides a separate blower communicating with the oven cavity to circulate air therein, a separate heater and a thermal sensor placed in the circulated air
further including a controller receiving a control set point and a signal from the thermal sensor to control the heater for each oven cavity independently;
a memory holding to a set of different cooking schedules each providing at least one control set point;
wherein the controller operates to output instructions to a user guiding assignment of a given cooking schedule to an oven cavity according to at least one control set point of the given cooking schedule.
