Finding the best professional gas ranges for the home can be overwhelming, but it’s an essential first step to creating the kitchen of your dreams.
If you’re like most homeowners, you have an idea of what you want but you’re not sure which features, functionalities, or sizes you need.
To help you get started, we encourage you to join us as we take a closer look at several gas ranges and explore the major differences.
The Best Professional Gas Ranges for the Home
The key to finding the best professional gas ranges for your needs comes down to the space available in your kitchen, the type of cooking you enjoy, and the style you find most attractive.
Before you can compare your options, you need to consider the following:
- You will want to determine the size available. Measure the space in your kitchen for your range to determine the size of the appliance your kitchen can handle.
- Consider what you’ll be cooking on the stove and in the oven. Think about the size of your household and family. Will you be cooking large meals and require additional space and burners?
- British Thermal Units per hour, or BTU/hr, is the standard unit of measurement for determining the capability of a range. Generally, the higher the BTU, the higher the heat output – and the most efficient cooking that your range will do. Range BTUs generally fall between 5,000 and 15,000.
Carefully review the size, the features, and the specifications when on your search. Some of the best professional gas ranges for the home may have exactly what you are looking for.
