Home Cooking on a Range

There’s nothing like making memories with good old-fashioned home cooking—especially when it’s cooked on a brand-new range! But deciding between gas or electric and choosing the right style can be tricky, so we’re here to help with what you need to know.

What is a range?

A range is a cooking appliance that has both a cooktop and an oven. Standard sizes are around 30 inches wide, 26 to 28 inches deep, and 47 to 48 inches high, with oven capacities ranging from two to four cubic feet. Smaller ranges exist around 20 inches wide as well as larger sizes up to 60 inches wide.

Make sure to measure your space multiple times (at least three) before you start shopping!

Which fuel type is best for a range?

The best range fuel type depends on your personal preference and your home hook-ups.

Gas ranges have a gas cooktop and a gas oven, which means more precise flame control on the burner and moist baking or roasting inside the oven. These come in freestanding, slide-in, and professional styles, so you can find the one that fits your kitchen layout.

Electric ranges have an electric cooktop and an electric oven, emitting stable heat on the burners and a drier, consistent heat in the oven. These come in freestanding, slide-in, and drop-in styles, plus three cooktop styles: electric coil, smooth-top glass or ceramic, and induction.

Dual-fuel ranges meld the best of both worlds with a gas cooktop and an electric oven. This design means you get an impressive searing power on the cooktop and more even baking in the electric oven. Dual fuel ranges are like gas in that they come in freestanding, slide-in, and professional styles.

What are the different range styles?

The different range styles are freestanding, slide-in, drop-in, and pro-style.

Freestanding ranges have finished panels on the front and sides, which allow for installation almost anywhere in your kitchen. These commonly feature a backsplash with touch controls and a clock; some models have a broiler drawer for extra cooking power.

Slide-in ranges have a slightly protruding cooktop and contoured sides, which helps them slide between your countertops and prevent food from falling in the gap. The oven and burner controls are on the front of the range, above the oven door, with some models featuring a storage or warming drawer (usually there’s no backsplash).

Drop-in ranges are similar to slide-ins with controls on the front, except drop-ins sit on a cabinet base (hence the “drop-in”) to create a seamless look. This design usually requires custom cabinetry and a cabinet front panel at the bottom (no room for a warming or storage drawer).

Professional-style ranges are on a higher level, sometimes doubling the cooking fun with a double oven, a grill, griddle, and up to six burners. Pro-style ranges can have any combination of these features, as well as extra-powerful burners.
