Go with the classic design of a freestanding range, the sides are finished so it can stand alone or between cabinets.
Or, give your kitchen the sleek look of a slide-in range. The controls are in the front, so you don’t have to reach over hot burners.
Before you buy a range, make sure you know the cut-out size
where you will install your new kitchen appliance.
The range is the workhorse of your kitchen. It bakes, broils and boils, and combines a stove and oven in one appliance. It helps make most of our meals, every day. You have so many options and features to choose from, you’ll need to figure out the range best for your kitchen.
You’ll have to consider fuel; do you want to cook with gas or electric? A gas stove will give you precise heat control and consistent temperature on the cooktop, the heat in the oven tends to be slightly humid. Electric stoves heat quickly up top and cook with an even, dry heat in the oven.
Tech-savvy induction stoves are a fast-heating energy-efficient stove top which uses electricity and magnetic coils to quickly bring heat directly to the pan, leaving the remaining surface cool to the touch. Induction ranges are safe because they don't use flames or direct heat.
Consider a convection stove if you bake a lot. It uses fans to circulate hot air in the oven so your foods cook more evenly, at a lower temperature and in less time. If you like to cook large meals, or you just want to be able to heat up a pot pie and bake cookies at the same time, consider a double oven electric range or double oven gas range, depending on your fuel supply.
For a minimal look with a punch of style, a slide-in gas range is pretty slick. It doesn’t have a back panel and fits in flush with your countertops. Stainless steel stoves can give your kitchen a lift in style, as well.
Many of our gas ranges and electric ranges also come equipped with a self-cleaning oven feature, a high-temperature process that cleans without you having to manually scrub.
Before you buy a range, make sure you have the right amount of space allotted for it. They typically need to fit into a specific amount of space in the kitchen. Measure first, buy second, especially for slide-in stoves.
