30 inch gas range

Is it time to replace your kitchen range? If so, you may be interested in learning more about the benefits a new 30 inch gas range has to offer.

Let’s take a closer look.

The 30 inch Gas Range

Do you know what you can do with a range? It can be there so you can cook a delightful meal that could win over the heart – and stomach – of your significant other. It can allow you to provide warm nourishment for your children. And, it can give you and your friends a place to hang around as you make delicious munchies for the monthly girls or guys night.

The 30 inch gas range is one of the popular gas ranges available today. Its size is convenient and it packs the power you need to cook up your favorite meals.

If you’re interested in replacing an old range, you need to consider a few things before making your purchase.

Below, you will find an outline of some of the things you should consider.

Get the Sizing Right

It is important to note that a range can come in a variety of sizes. Most typically, however, you will find them to be either 30-inches or 36-inches. It is important to note this because when you begin your search for a new range, you need to make sure you are purchasing one that will fit. There are few things worse than having your range delivered and the spacing be off.

Take a moment to confirm your sizing before you go any further. If you currently have a range installed, measuring it should give you a good idea. For example, it will not likely measure 30-inches exactly. Instead, it may ring in at about 29 ¼ inches instead. This gives you a tiny bit of wiggle room on either side. However, if you currently have an empty space where your range is going to go, just do a quick measurement and make sure it is 30 inches.

Once you have this taken care of, let’s take a look at the 30-inch ranges you may be interested in.

What if all of this sounds wonderful, but you are looking for something a bit more trendy or rather, edgy? If so, then why not opt for black stainless steel?

Black stainless steel is a popular trend these days. It offers everything that stainless steel does, such as durability, strength, longevity, and more. It also is easy to maintain and keep clean from smudges, smears, and fingerprints. Here is where it differs, though. While stainless steel offers a more bright, shiny appearance, black stainless steel is more of a matte finish. It is beautiful and provides a wonderful addition to any kitchen – and design.

As for this 30-inch range, you will find that it provides a lot of the same features as the model above. The primary distance is the finish.

Here are some of the features model number HRG3080-BS offers.

  • Four burners ranging from a soft simmer at 650 BTU to 18,000 BTU
  • Black zinc alloy knobs with blue LED illuminating lights
  • Porcelain stovetop drip pan for easy cleaning
  • Porcelain oven interior – also for easy cleaning
  • CSA Certified
  • 3 x Continuous flat cast-iron cooking grates for the easy movement of large cookware
  • 2 cubic feet of oven capacity
  • Oven Broiler with a BTU of 13,000
  • Commercial Convection Fan circulates heat to maximize even cooking
  • Two Halogen Lights illuminate the oven cavity
  • Thermostatically controlled for precise temperatures

What is a Dual Fuel Range?

Are you a great chef or like to pretend like you are? If you cook and bake a lot, then you probably know that certain types of heat work better on the stove and in the oven. For example, a gas burner offers more precise temperature control. However, in an oven, gas has to continuously re-light in order to maintain the temperature. This means whatever you are baking is being exposed to a continuous fluctuation in temperature, causing it to bake unevenly.

On the hand, an electric stove heats up the burner which, in turn, heats your pan. It takes longer to heat and longer to cool down. Temperature precision is scarce. Here is the benefit, though. When baking, an electric oven offers a continuous flow of heat – meaning that your food is baked evenly without worry.

Wrap this all up together and you have what is known as a dual fuel range. And, guess what? It comes in a 30-inch model.

Thor Kitchen’s Model Number HRD3088U

Back to that timeless stainless steel, you will find that this dual fuel range offers you more than you could imagine – and all packed into its 30-inch width. It is easy to keep clean and will look nice with any design style. Like Thor’s other stoves of the same size, this one has four burners that heat up to 18,000 BTU.

Remember, this stove runs off of natural gas, but the oven is electric – with an electric broiler. It also has these key features:

  • Porcelain cooktop drip pan for easy cleaning
  • Blue porcelain oven interior – also for easy cleaning
  • CSA Certified
  • 3 x Continuous flat cast-iron cooking grates for the easy movement of large cookware
  • 2 cubic feet of oven capacity
  • Commercial convection fan circulates heat to maximize even cooking
  • Two halogen lights illuminate the oven cavity

Conclusion

Getting a new range is always exciting, no matter the reason. Before you head out to make this investment, have an idea of what you are looking for. So, will it be Thor Kitchen’s stainless steel? Black stainless steel? Or Dual fuel?
