A kitchen range is an essential appliance for any home and is a great option for those looking for the most cooking versatility in one appliance. The terms range and stove can be used interchangeably as they are the combination of a cooktop and an oven. You can find a vast selection of kitchen ranges here at The Range Hood Store.
What Makes up a Range?
A range is comprised of both an oven and a stovetop. An oven uses air to transfer heat by either burning gas or heating an element at the bottom of the oven. As the oven reaches temperature, the air will rise up into the oven, which will in turn cook your food. An oven can be an appliance on its own, mounted on your wall. A stovetop is made up of various heating elements and uses either gas, electricity, or induction to provide the necessary heat to cook. Stovetop can either be installed as a drop-in, creating a seamless integration look with your countertop. Whereas a traditional cooktop lays flat on top of the counter. You can enjoy the convenience of one appliance with a freestanding range, meaning you get a cooktop and an oven in one!
What are the Different Types of Ranges?
Dual Fuel Range: A dual fuel range is a combination of a gas cooktop and an electric oven, hence “dual fuel”. An electric oven is great because they provide dry heat and less oven temperature fluctuation–this heat is ideal for those browning or broiling their dishes. Gas cooktops provide more responsive temperature control, due to the open flame that can be adjusted instantly, which means you can react quickly and adjust the temperature if necessary.
Gas-on-Gas Range: Both the cooktop and oven in a gas range are typically fueled by either natural gas or liquid propane. One of the major benefits of using a gas range is the ease with which you can control cooking temperatures. You can immediately ignite the burners or oven and you don’t have to wait too long, meaning you can save some time and get to enjoy your meal faster!
Induction Range: An induction range gets its power and precision from induction technology. An induction cooktop uses an electromagnetic field below the glass cooktop surface, which then transfers current directly to magnetic cookware, causing it to heat up. The oven in an induction range will be similar to the electrical oven mechanics seen in a dual-fuel range. A great benefit to using an induction range is the energy efficiency you’ll see than the traditional electrical stoves and better indoor air quality!
Freestanding vs Slide-In Range
The biggest difference that lies between a freestanding and slide-in range is their installation and design. A freestanding range is an independent unit that can be placed anywhere in the kitchen and doesn’t require surrounding cabinetry. Whereas a slide-in range is designed to slide in between kitchen cabinets or other kitchen appliances. However, both are great options, but will be up to you to decide which features and installation requirements are best suited for you and your dream kitchen!
