A dual fuel range is a stove that has a gas cooktop and an electric convection oven. Dual fuel stoves are typically known for the versatility they offer the cook in the kitchen.

However, if you’re considering purchasing one of these stunning appliances, then take a look at our top reasons why you should consider installing a dual fuel range in your kitchen!

Dual Fuel vs Gas Ranges

The biggest difference between a dual fuel range and a gas range is the fuel types they use to heat the oven. Gas ranges run on natural gas or liquid propane to fuel both the oven cavity and the burners. Whereas, dual fuel ranges will utilize the electricity produced through coils, to heat up the oven and use natural gas or liquid propane for the burner fuel. Dual fuel ranges are known for their precision in temperature control and even cooking, making them popular with professional chefs and home cooks who want high-quality results.

How to Install a Dual Fuel Range

When it comes to installing your brand new dual fuel range, it is important to note that you will still need a gas line to be connected, as the burners utilize the gas. Concerning the electrical requirements, dual fuel ranges do require a 240-volt power supply. The standard plug or the 120-volt power supply, will not be compatible. If you have any questions about dual fuel range installation, we recommend reaching out to a professional.

  • Step 1: Check your circuit voltage

  • Step 2: Know your power cords

  • Step 3: Check the required connections in your electric range

  • Step 4: Locate and turn off the gas valve

  • Step 5: Attach the gas connector

  • Step 6: Connect the power cord to the electric range

  • Step 7: Plug in your electric range

  • Step 8: Slide the dual fuel range into place

  • Step 9: Secure the mounting plate, if necessary

  • Step 10: Turn on the gas and check for leaks
