What is the difference between a range and a cooktop?
A range is a cooktop and an oven in one unit. It has the cooktop on top of the appliance, and the oven is underneath. A range can be installed in between cabinets or can be freestanding. A cooktop does not include an oven, and this means it is installed on a countertop. Within 48 in. Gas Cooktops, we carry top brands including Kucht and ZLINE Kitchen and Bath.
