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. Dual fuel ranges mix the safety and precision of an electric oven with the power of a gas cooktop. 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
