Electric Ranges for Electrifyingly Savory Meals

Still debating between gas or electric appliances in your kitchen? Or trying to figure out the difference between an oven, stovetop, or range? Well, with an electric range, you get the benefits of both an electric cooktop and oven in one appliance!

Most electric ranges require a 220- or 240-volt connection and stand around 30 inches wide, 26-28 inches deep, and 47-48 inches high. Smaller models are around 20 inches wide, and larger ones go up to 36 inches wide—so be sure to measure your space at least three times!

Should I Get an Electric Range?

That depends on you; electric ranges maintain an even, consistent heat in the oven, and they feature easy-clean cooktops, fast-heating burners, and easy installation. Keep in mind that the higher the wattage your burners have, the faster your food will cook.

Plus, the dry oven heat of an electric range is ideal for roasting and broiling.

Which Electric Range Type is Best?

Deciding between a freestanding, slide-in, or drop-in electric range? The differences are how each is installed.

Freestanding ranges are finished on the front and sides and feature a backsplash with touch controls and clock, with some models including a broiling drawer. Typically, you can install these anywhere you have an electrical connection.

Drop-in ranges are designed to “drop in” with the rest of your cabinetry for a seamless look; just install a front panel over the bottom to complete the built-in design. These typically don’t feature a backsplash, and the controls and knobs are located just above the oven door.

Slide-in ranges also provide a built-in look with controls and knobs above the oven door, except there’s no cabinet-front panel to go over the bottom, as they “slide in.” Instead of that bottom front panel, some slide-ins also feature storage or warming drawers for extra versatility.

Which Cooktop Do I Need for My Range?

Range cooktops depend on how you like to cook.

Spiral coils feature metal coils on the surface, which heat up and glow red when hot. The coils output a lot of heat, so newer models include a safety feature to keep the burners from overheating past 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Smooth-top ranges feature coil or radiant heating elements underneath a glass surface, which heat up quickly and evenly. The smooth surface looks sleek, with the only drawback being a vulnerability to cracks and scratches from dropped cookware.

Induction ranges use an electromagnetic field underneath a glass cooktop, which only heats up the compatible cookware that touches the surface. You get fast, even cooking with precise temperature control, and water will boil between 2 to 4 minutes faster than average!

What Features Do I Need for My Electric Range?

Further upgrade your cooking with these key features:

  • Dual-element burners and bridged elements: Expand your cooking surface between burners!
  • Adjustable oven racks, multiple broil settings, and convection: Take charge of your oven space with these versatile options.
  • Electronic temperature controls, Wi-Fi connectivity, and programmable timing: Get the precise temperature you need with convenient controls.
  • Hot-surface indicator lights and LED-lit knobs: Put safety first and know when the surface is on or too hot!
  • Warming or broiler drawers: Keep food warm until dinner time, or finish every meal with crispy caramelization!
