7 Easy Paleo Dinner Recipes to Make on a Range Stove

7 easy paleo dinner recipes to make on a range stove

Although it peaked in popularity about a decade ago, the idea behind the paleo diet (formerly known as the paleolithic diet) came about in the 1970s. Whether you are looking to get started on this diet or you are trying to find new ideas to keep your diet fresh and exciting, we’ve got a few ideas for you with 7 easy paleo dinner recipes to make on a range stove. But first, here’s a snippet of what paleo is about.

What is a Paleo Diet?

paleo diet focuses on foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, lean meats, fish, oils, and eggs. And it avoids foods like dairy, beans, bread and other grains, and refined sugar.

It is dubbed a stone-age diet or caveman diet because it has a strong focus on the foods that hunters and gatherers would eat all those years ago before farming and processed foods were ever a thing.

Easy Paleo Dinner Recipes to Explore

Now that you have a little taste of what paleo is, it’s time to check out some easy paleo dinner recipes to try in the comfort of your home from THOR Kitchen.

1. Creamy Potato Chowder with Shrimp and Bacon

There are some days when you are just looking for the taste of comfort food. And as we head into the fall season, a warm creamy soup may be just what you are looking for. This creamy potato chowder with shrimp and bacon soup is as delicious as it is soothing. Stuffed with bacon, shrimp, onion, celery, carrots, corn, dairy-free cashew cream, along with various herbs and seasonings – what more can you ask for?

2. 20-Minute Paleo Egg Roll Bowls

Imagine eggs without, well, the roll. That’s what you have here. These incredibly delicious paleo egg roll bowls take all the goodness from the inside of an egg roll and toss it in a bowl. This includes carrots, red cabbage, green cabbage, scallions, and ground pork – with sesame oil and soy sauce for flavor. The flavor is so on-point that you won’t even miss the fact that it isn’t a wrapped, fried, greasy mess. Perhaps the best part of the recipe is that it is so quick and easy – the perfect dinner recipe after a busy day at the office.

Oh, and don’t forget to top your bowl off with some sriracha!

3. Thai Basil Beef (Pad Gra Prow)

The aromas that are going to be coming from your kitchen as you make this quick 30-minute meal will have mouths watering throughout the house. Using flank steak in a skillet on your stove along with oil, onion, garlic, bell pepper, Thai chilis, coconut aminos, fish sauce, and more, your meat will become flavorful, tender, and almost glazed with goodness.

Thai basil beef is even more perfect when served alongside riced cauliflower and some steamed broccoli, making it a well-balanced paleo meal.

4. Cauliflower Alfredo Zoodles

Who doesn’t love a one-pot meal? This cauliflower alfredo zoodles recipe is easy, packed with all kinds of veggie goodness, and it can’t help but give you all those good, warm feels inside. Even the creamy sauce is made of vegetables.

The secret to this recipe is in the sauce. It is a roasted garlic alfredo sauce made with cauliflower and roasted garlic (obviously) in addition to nutritional yeast, lime juice, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Very simple to create, but it surely doesn’t taste like it.

You can pour this alfredo sauce over spiralized zucchini (zoodles), asparagus, broccoli florets, brussel sprouts, red pepper, shredded carrots, and cherry tomatoes. While the dish itself is filling enough with all the vegetables, you can always add in a protein source, too, if you’d prefer.

5. Salmon Salad Power Bowls

Some days just call for a cool, refreshing salad. This salmon salad power bowl is a light dinner, yet it is packed with everything your body needs to feel good – including omegas, fiber, potassium, vitamin c, calcium, vitamin K, iron, and more. In other words, it is definitely something you can feel good about.

So, what makes this salad so delicious? It has to be a mixture of greens, sauteed summer squash and zucchini, raspberries, and grilled wild Alaskan salmon. And the touch of balsamic glaze doesn’t hurt, that’s for sure. Throw in some healthy oils and other seasonings, and your mouth is sure to be a rainbow of flavors.

6. Harissa Portobello Mushroom Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos? Gone are the days of basic tacos. Today, you can change up the flavors to create an unforgettable dish. After all, tacos made of mushrooms? Yes. Taco shells made of collard green leaves? Yes, again.

These harissa portobello mushroom paleo tacos will quench your craving for tacos – and will make you never want an everyday, ordinary taco anymore.

For the “meat,” you are going to season up portobello mushrooms with a mixture of spicy harissa (or mild if you just can’t handle the heat), olive oil, ground cumin, and onion powder. Let them marinate for a bit, and then pop them into a hot skillet of oil.

Add the mushrooms to the collard green leaves and top with guacamole, chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro, and cashew cream.

7. Green Bowl with Chicken, Citrus, and Herbs

Greens. You have likely heard that to stay healthy, you have to eat your greens, right? Well, here’s a green bowl with chicken, citrus, and herbs that is sure to do the body good while also tasting delish! This quick meal with a Mediterranean feel is packed with protein and will leave you wanting it day after day. Plus, it is a great way to use up leftover chicken.

Saute olive oil, shallots, and sea salt until translucent. Then add in the broccoli slaw and asparagus until it is – you guessed it – bright green. Throw in the spinach, orange zest, za’atar, and cook. Add in the pre-cooked chicken until it is warmed all the way through.

Toss all of this into a bowl and top with the avocado, fresh herbs, and green goddess dressing.

Your Paleo Adventure Awaits!

You have a beautiful stainless steel range in your kitchen, so you may as well make good use of it. The stove on top can work with you to create some unforgettable, easy paleo dinner recipes you and your family will love. Enjoy!

How to Clean an Electric Stove Top

How to clean an electric stove top

An electric stove top can be a beautiful and eye-catching addition to a kitchen. And no matter how much it is used, cleaning it regularly will make it appear as though it has never been touched. However, not everyone knows how to clean an electric stove top.

The good news is that there is no intricate cleaning technique or even expensive cleaners that you have to buy to make it look so stunning. In fact, most of the supplies are probably already in your house!

Here is everything you need to know on how to clean an electric stove top.

Supplies You Need

Before you can get started on cleaning your electric stove top, it is very important that you have all the right tools. Without them, you could risk damaging the surface of the stovetop. So gather up the following, and then let’s get started.

Baking soda

Vinegar

-Dish soap

-Soft towel

-Sponge

-Warm water

-Glass cleaner

Step 1: Remove Coils and Drip Pans

For those stoves that have coils and drip pans, go ahead and remove them. Use a sponge and warm soapy water to wipe down the coils. Rinse and let dry. Do not submerge coils in water.

As for the drip pans, remove any loose food particles and debris and submerge the drip pans in a sink of soapy water for about 20 minutes or so. Then, remove, rinse, wipe them off, and set them aside. Should any grease or food particles remain stuck, use your sponge to gently remove them. Soak longer if you need to.

Both of these can be placed aside until you finish cleaning the stove top.

Step 2: Create Baking Soda Paste

Create a baking soda paste and apply it to the stove top. This paste can be created using three parts baking soda to one part warm water. Mix until you have the consistency of a paste, and then apply to your stove top.

Let it sit for about 5 minutes. This will give it time to break down any residue or stuck-on food found on your stove.

When the time is up, wipe the stove with a soft towel. Whatever you do, don’t scrub with force or you may risk scratching the stove’s surface.

Step 3: Use Glass Cleaner

Once you have removed all the baking soda, use glass cleaner (or, if preferred, soapy water) and clean the stove top to remove anything left behind – and to make it shine.

Replace your burners and coils if you have them – and you are all done. It is really that easy.

Remove Burn Marks From Glass Stove Top

Burn marks left behind on the stove can be an eyesore for the unit. You want to get rid of them, so your stove can look great once again. Good news – there is a simple fix for that, too. You will create a paste much like you did when cleaning the stove, except this one is going to be a bit stronger.

Mix together two parts vinegar and one part baking soda to create a paste. Because the vinegar is more acidic, the two ingredients will react more with one another and cause a reaction that will work to break up the burn mark.

Do not scrub the marks as you don’t want to risk scratching the top. If you go to wipe away the mixture and you still see it has some work to do, leave it or reapply and let it sit longer. You may find you have to repeat this process a couple of times.

Degreasing an Electric Stove Top

If you have ever tried to wipe off the grease that has been caked on your stove top for some time, then you know the best you can usually do is to smear it. It looks terrible. Thankfully, using the right elixir, you can wipe it clean once and for all.

Turn on the burners for a minute to heat them up just a little bit. Pour a little bit of warm water on the stove, and then add baking soda. Let it sit (with the burners off) for a minute or so. Use a soft cloth to wipe up the water and baking soda.

Next, add dish soap to a soft sponge and gently scrub the area if needed. Wipe it up with a clean, dry towel.

This usually should take just one attempt, but if your grease is piled on thick, you may need to repeat.

Looking For an Electric Stove Top?

Maybe you’ve always admired the look of an electric stove top but thought they were work-intensive to keep them looking so nice. If so, you’re in for a treat. Now that you know how to clean an electric stove top to keep that clean, spotless shine, here’s one you don’t want to miss.

THOR Kitchen’s 36-inch Professional Electric Cooktop

The 36-inch professional electric cooktop, model number TEC36, will look sharp in any kitchen – with any decor and design style. This sleek unit boasts five burners that pack a punch, from simmer to high boiling temps.

A perfect combination of style, convenience, and power, this stove top comes with the following features:

-Lightningboil Burner Tri-Zone to get just the right temperature you need when you need it

-Sync burner to heat up large dishes in a jiffy

-Automatic shut-off safety switch

If 36-inches doesn’t fit your kitchen, then perhaps Thor Kitchen’s 30-inch stove top is a better fit.

Professional Kitchen Range 101: Styles, Space, and Size

Professional kitchen range 101: Styles, space, and size

There are certain things that you buy for your kitchen without any great research, knowing that they may or may not last a while – and you are ok with that. For instance, a new small kitchen appliance that is all the rage today may be forgotten tomorrow. Then there are those other kitchen additions that you actually invest in, like a professional kitchen range. You do your research, you look at all the options, and you choose the one that is going to enhance your life.

In the case of a new kitchen range, you learn about the styles, the sizes, the space, and the features. You find that one that is not only going to enhance your life but also boost your home’s value. And then you buy it.

Before you swipe that card, it is time to get schooled in Professional Kitchen Range 101.

The Term Professional Matters

Being the good student that you are, you understand that there is usually a meaning behind a name. In other words, we don’t just call a professional kitchen range a professional range for no reason. The word professional matters. It sets this range apart from others. Here’s why.

Back in the 1980s, there became a switch. Consumers were showing interest in commercial-grade ranges. After all, these appliances were built with more durability and more beneficial features – both much needed due to their heavy daily use. But what about those families that use their range day in and day out to cook for large households? Their ranges couldn’t keep up with cooking. Yet, a homeowner didn’t have the space for a commercial-size range even if it could be afforded.

Pro-style ranges were developed. These ranges brought the strength, durability, reliability, and features of a commercial range and combined it with the size and beautiful aesthetics found in a residential range. We’re talking more powerful burners, griddles, and still gentle simmers.

They do come at a cost.

Professional Sizes

The standard size of a residential range is 30 inches to 36 inches. You can purchase a professional range in these sizes. But, because we want more options, it has been delivered. You can find pro-style ranges in 48-inch and even 60-inch sizes. The larger the range, the more options, burners, and features it likely has, such as a griddle.

Not to mention that if the stove top is bigger, the oven is going to be bigger, too. And that’s a score!

Before you make your purchase, you need to determine just how much space you have so you know what size you can feasibly fit in your kitchen.

Address Ventilation Concerns

You are going to need a range hood if you purchase a pro-style range. These powerful appliances produce a lot of heat, moisture, odor, carbon monoxide, and other toxins. Having proper ventilation will keep the air in your kitchen cooler and much healthier to breathe.

Keep in mind that you will want to choose your range hood after you have decided on the size of your range. That way, you can be sure that your hood is powerful enough to handle it.

Styles to Choose From

There are so many different styles to choose from when it comes to purchasing a professional kitchen range, including red, blue, white, and even stainless steel ones. Also, some come with extra trim and or look like they are straight out of the 1800s.

And while all of these are absolutely beautiful and probably work just as good as they claim, there is just something about a timeless classic, wouldn’t you agree? A stainless steel professional range is stunning with any decor or design idea. As your tastes evolve over the years, your shiny range will still fit in perfectly. Plus, since stainless steel is so easy to keep clean, you are sure to have an everlasting shine!

How to Clean a Stainless Steel Stove

How to clean a stainless steel stove

Stainless steel is a timeless finish for the appliances in your kitchen. There is something about walking into the room and seeing the shine that comes from this metal – rather than the traditional white or off-white appliances. It is downright classy. However, when it begins to lose its dazzle, would you know how to clean a stainless steel stove to restore the beauty?

Mess, Smudges… and Grease

Unfortunately, as you use your appliances, you may find that they end up looking a little messy from time to time. Have you ever been in the middle of cooking something greasy and floury on your stovetop – and you forgot you had biscuits in the oven that needed to come out? As you open your oven door, you leave behind a little smudge.

Now, imagine this over and over again. You – and your entire family – are in the kitchen every single day! You all can begin to slowly leave your mark on your stove and all of your other appliances left behind from making many delicious recipes.

Ready for some good news? You invested in a stainless steel stove. So that means you are not destined to have a crusty, ruined appliance for the rest of its life. You can bring back that beautiful shine it had when you first brought it home.

And we are going to teach you just how to do it. Surprise – it’s easier than you think!

Cleaning a Glass Stove

First things first, we are going to focus on the stove. You can make this easy cleanup and keep things looking fresh every day by using some glass cleaner each night after dinner. Though for stains that are a bit more complex, you will need to take a few extra steps.

You will need a few simple ingredients:

– Baking soda

– Vinegar

– Soft cloth

– Water

Create a paste with the baking soda and a little water (3:1 ratio) and apply it to your stove. Let it sit there and do its job for approximately two hours. Then, spray vinegar onto the stove and wipe it clean with a soft cloth. Use an additional, clean, soft cloth to dry off the stove.

Greasy Ovens and Stovetops

If you have grease on your stove, you can use the same ingredients to remove it. However, you are going to do things just a tad bit differently. Here you will create a paste of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide (again, 3 parts baking to one part peroxide). Spread it out onto the stove and use a sponge to gently remove the grease. It will eventually break down, and you should be able to wipe it away with a soft, dry cloth.

When you are through, dip another soft cloth into vinegar and wipe down the stove to get the ultimate shine.

Doing either of these methods is a great way to keep your stove clean – and something you can do easily every couple of weeks. Plus, while there are harsh chemicals on the market that you can use, this method doesn’t use them, which is safer for you and your family.

Cleaning a Gas Stove

Not every stove comes with a glass top. Some – especially gas cooktops – have the traditional burners that involve a little more in-depth cleaning. This involves a slightly different method of cleaning if you want to clean it effectively.

Let’s take a look at the steps to get this done. First, the ingredients you will need include:

– Baking soda

– Vinegar

– Soft cloth

– Water

– Plastic bags

– Dish soap

Remove the Grates

First, remove the grates and submerge them in warm soapy water to soak. Then, cover your burners with a plastic bag in an attempt to prevent any of your cleaner from dripping down into them.

Create the Paste Mixture

Make a mixture as above using baking soda and water (3:1) or baking soda and hydrogen peroxide if grease needs to be removed. Spread the paste over your stove. For water, let it sit for two hours before spraying it down with vinegar and wiping it clean. For the hydrogen peroxide mixture, spread it on your stovetop and use a soft cloth to clean the stovetop, and begin removing the mixture.

Spray it Down

Once it is cleared off, spray it down with vinegar and then dry it with another soft, clean cloth. This will leave your stove shining bright.

Wash + Rinse Burners

When you are finished, wash and rinse off your burners. Dry them off and assess how they look. This is usually all that is needed to ensure that you have clean burner grates to go on your clean, stainless steel stovetop. If they still have tough, stuck-on stains, you may want to consider placing them inside your oven on self-clean mode. This is an easy way to get the burners super clean.

Remove the plastic bags from the burner, careful not to let any accumulated water drip down inside. Then add your burner grates. Congrats – you are done.

A Few Extra Tips for Cleaning Stainless Steel Appliances

You should never use the following on your stainless steel stove – or any stainless steel appliances:

– Bleach

– Chemicals that contain bleach

– Chemicals that have grit

– Steel wool

– Paper towels

Abrasive cleaners such as these can damage the finish and cause discoloration. Instead, you can always use baking soda, vinegar, Clorox wipes – or other antibacterial cleaning wipes, and Windex – or another glass cleaner. Each one of these is a great option and is all you need to keep your stove looking fresh.

Cleaning in the Same Direction

And finally, before we go, we want to stress how important it is to clean your stainless steel appliances going in the same direction as the grain. Take a moment to figure out if your grain is going vertically or horizontally. Then, as you clean, make sure you are going in the same direction. You should feel it nice and smoothly with no resistance. Always use a soft cloth so that you reduce any chance of scratching.

Not following this could cause damage to your finish – and nobody wants that.

No Stain, No Gain

What are you waiting for? Gather up your supplies and get to work. With just a little bit of effort, your stove can look brand new again!

The Benefits of a 36 Inch Wide Electric Range

36 Inch Wide Electric Range

There are certain things that just make life a little bit sweeter, like an ice-cold beer on a super hot day, the most comfortable pair of shoes on a long hike, the embrace of a loved one on a bad day, and a pro-style electric range that is going to help you power through your next meal prep. 

Whether you are a professional chef looking for a durable, efficient range for the kitchen in your home or you are just someone who likes to cook and nourish those around you – having the right range matters. And, we’ve got it.

Before you pull out all the ingredients for your saucy tofu noodles with cucumbers and chili crisp, invite this range in. You’ll notice the difference. 

THOR Kitchen’s 36 Inch Wide Electric Range

So, what is this must-have range? It is the pro-style, stainless steel 36-inch wide electric range, model number HRE3601. It is both powerful and functional, as well as incredibly beautiful, too. It is incredibly durable and long-lasting, which alone makes it a great investment. But considering that it will match well with any kitchen decor, it can stick around for years to come. 

Plus, with all of its benefits, you won’t want any other range. Let’s take a look at them. 

Stainless Steel Finish

The first thing you will notice when you walk into the kitchen is the bright, shiny stainless steel finish. It blends well with your other appliances and, as we mentioned above, with any type of decor. But it is more than just its look – stainless steel is durable and non-corrosive. It can take heavy use and still look amazing. And, it is easy to clean, too.

Smooth Glass Top with 5 Heating Elements

The stovetop is smooth, frameless glass which makes it look like it flows seamlessly with your countertop. It is easy to clean any drippings and spills without having to worry about cleaning deep down inside the burner. It is a little touch of elegance. 

Underneath that glass, you will find 5 heating elements. Essentially this means you have space on your stovetop to cook 5 things at the same time! If you are someone who cooks big meals – or at least likes your food all hot at the same time – this could be a perfect size.

The burners give you flexibility in cooking, with a 100W warming zone to a high-powered 3,222W LightningBoil element, so you can cook something hearty or delicate on the same stove – and at the same time.

A True Convection Fan

Do you know what a convection fan does – or how impactful it can be to your food? If you have ever cooked or baked something in your oven that turns out too burnt and crispy on one side and perfect on the other – or even undercooked in another area – then you likely did not have a convection fan. This can be frustrating and it can be very wasteful if you have to throw out your food. 

This 36-inch electric range comes with a true convection fan – and it makes a huge difference in the overall quality of your finished product. This fan blows heat from the 1300W heating element to provide a level of even heating. As a result, your food gets cooked and baked at every angle, leaving you with perfection. 

Large Oven Capacity

Have you ever bought a Thanksgiving turkey only to realize it wouldn’t fit in your oven? Or have you tried to cook more than one thing at the same time and struggled to place more than one dish on the rack? With the large oven capacity you have with this range, you will no longer have to worry about any of those things. 

A total of 6.0 cubic feet of space is what you will receive – that is larger than a standard oven! You will have room for your main dish and the sides, too. 

Cooking Modes

Imagine cooking a roast and a croissant in your oven at the same temperature setting. It just doesn’t make sense, does it? Yet so many people cook this way. Unless, of course, they have this 36-inch range from THOR Kitchen.

Multiple cooking modes allow you to cook your food just right. For instance, you will have bake, convection bake, broil, and convection broil. The results you will get when you match up the right cooking method with the desired result are impeccable. 

Beauty in Blue

You could enjoy a nice stainless steel range in all the beauty and elegance it brings. But, why stop there? We have added some extra touches that are both functional and eye-catching. For instance, the LED control panel lights. They light up in a striking blue that stands out and looks like a classy pop of color while you utilize the control panel. 

What’s more, the inside of the oven is decked out in blue porcelain. It not only looks fantastic and stunning, but it is also easy to clean. Any spills or drips can be easily wiped up without worry. This will always leave you with a great-looking appliance. 

Electrical Power

Many people argue over which is better – electric or gas – when it comes to a range. For many, an electric range just makes sense. They come with their own standard benefits, too, such as: 

● Ability to provide heat at higher levels 

● Excellent broilers

● Provide more even heat in the oven

● Ability to sustain low heat levels

● Easy to power on and off

● A flat surface is stable for pots and pans

● The kitchen and surrounding areas remain cooler while cooking

Whether you are in the market for a new range – or an entire kitchen suite – then don’t make a move until you consider this 36-inch wide electric range by THOR Kitchen. As you can tell, it comes with a long list of benefits, is durable to last for many years, and can aid you in cooking some of the best meals of your life.

The Benefits of a Small Electric Range

small electric range

A standard kitchen range is typically 30 inches wide. But, what if you don’t have enough space for a range to fit? What if your kitchen is not made for the standard? Take a deep breath – you aren’t going to starve. THOR Kitchen has you covered. 

See, we understand that all kitchens are not created equal. While some may have a lot of space – and even have room for multiple ranges, ovens, and cooktops – others do not. Those with kitchens that were designed small shouldn’t have to worry about getting stuck with appliances that are less-than or having access to appliances that work just as well as the larger, 30-inch options. Believe it or not, it is absolutely possible to find high quality and durability in a small package. 

Let’s take an in-depth look at a small electric range that is sure to fit your space, your needs, and your style. 

THOR Kitchen’s Professional Electric Range

Unlike the standard range, THOR Kitchen has designed a small electric range, model number HRE2401, that fits in most small kitchens. This 24-inch option has all the qualities, power, and features of a full-size range without the extra bulk. It even comes with some enhanced features that are sure to make you feel good about cooking in your kitchen. 

Smooth Glass Top

Smooth glass top ranges tend to offer a beautiful, sleek look when it comes to their design. When implementing this into a small space, not having bulky burners can make the space appear less cluttered or weighed down. Rather, the range looks as though it is a continuation of the countertop – especially since it is a frameless glass top. 

Did you know that glass tops are easy to keep clean, too? We’re all looking for ways to make life easier – and if that means not having to clean deep down inside burners and grates, then that’s a definite plus. 

Heavy-Duty Control Knobs

Life is full of ups and downs and long days. When you walk into your kitchen, you want appliances that you can count on. And that includes your range. Nobody wants to deal with a broken range knob on top of everything else. It’s just not necessary. 

This 24-inch small electric range comes with heavy-duty control knobs in die-cast metal. They look nice and they are durable. One less thing you will have to worry about. 

Large Capacity Oven

When considering a smaller oven for your smaller space, it is natural to worry about whether or not you are sacrificing oven space, too. The size of the range is small so it should be expected that the oven will be a little smaller, too. The good news is that, due to its fantastic design, you still have a large capacity oven. In fact, its 3.73 cubic foot oven is able to handle multiple dishes all at the same time – just as its bigger twin would. 

Looking at the numbers, you may be losing a little bit of space. But when it comes down to utilizing the oven, you aren’t likely to notice much difference at all. And, if a sacrifice isn’t noticed, does it really count? Go on – cook your turkey – you’ll be just fine. 

True Convection Fan

Have you ever pulled a dessert from the oven only to find that half of it is still undercooked? Leave it for much longer and the other half will burn. It gets tricky when you are dealing with an oven that has uneven heat flow. This THOR Kitchen small electric range doesn’t have that problem. Your lasagna, cookies, cakes, biscuits, and more will all come out perfectly cooked all the way around. How? A true convection fan, of course. 

This convection fan comes standard on the range and blows heat from the 800W heating element so that you have even heating and baking every single time. 

Multiple Cooking Modes

Do you cook the same thing every day? If you do, it is time for a change. Most of us make different meals so it only seems logical that we’d benefit from multiple cooking modes, don’t you think? You will find this range to offer you multiple cooking modes, such as bake., convection bake, broil, and convection broil. This will lead to a perfectly cooked meal every single time. Well, assuming you follow the recipe. 

Four Heating Elements

Most small electric ranges result in having fewer burners. Not this one. Here you will have four heating elements for four burners on your cooktop. Ranging from 1200W to 2200W, you have a lot of cooking power. This range makes it easy to simmer and boil. 

Having four burners also makes it beneficial when you are cooking a meal. The cooking space means you can have your main dish and sides all hot and ready to go at the same time. 

Aesthetically Pleasing

We all want a kitchen appliance that is not only going to function well but also look great, too. THOR Kitchen has designed this range in durable stainless steel. In your small kitchen space, the sparkle of the stainless steel is sure to add a beautiful touch. The fact that it is so easy to clean, too, means you will always have a range with a bright shine. 

The aesthetics with this range don’t stop there, though. You will also have a blue porcelain interior that looks fantastic – standing out from other typical ranges that have boring interiors. This one is bold, stylish, and easy to keep clean. 

Finally, what if you could match the blue interior with some LED control panel lights? When in use, they illuminate in a stunning shade of blue. It gives that perfect extra touch you didn’t know you needed. It is worth mentioning, too, that LED lights are long-lasting, cost-effective, and energy-saving, too. 

Your New Small Electric Range

Having a small kitchen doesn’t mean you should have to give up the opportunity to have appliances to meet your needs. THOR Kitchen has created this 24-inch small electric range that will meet your needs – and then surpass them. It is functional, stunning, and an absolute must-have.
