What does it mean when you dream about an oven?

An oven suggests a womb, as in the expression “a bun in the oven,” which means to be pregnant. An oven can also represent transformation, as an appliance that transforms food. Ovens are featured in some fairy tales, too, as a means of punishment (Hansel and Gretel throwing the witch into the oven) or as a means of transformation (the Gingerbread Man becoming a real person after being cooked in an oven).

Oven

(dreams)
The most obvious symbolism is that of a womb. You may be having some fears or anticipation in regard to having children. A warm oven is said to have “fruitful, ” or positive, connotations, while a cold oven the opposite. Of course, an oven may simply represent housekeeping and cooking.
