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.

The Benefits of a Large Electric Range

electric range with green cabinets

Have you ever cooked a big meal and served at least one dish lukewarm because it finished before the rest – or because you had to cook in shifts? 

When you have an electric range that doesn’t have adequate space, you will find yourself struggling and stressing trying to prepare a big meal. And, with holidays coming up – you do not want to find yourself in this situation. 

Investing in a large electric range means investing in yourself. You get to have everything you need to nourish those you love – without the high levels of cortisol flowing through your body due to being stressed and anxious. Though, of course, that’s not the only benefit of a large electric range. 

The Benefits of a Large Electric Range

If you are in the market for a new range and you want the one that will bring you the most benefit, then you may find yourself wondering which is better – electric or gas? And you may wonder what size may work best or what features you really need. There is a lot to consider so let’s take a look at some of the benefits that come with investing in an electric range. 

Ample Amount of Cooking – and Baking Space. As we discussed, having adequate space is important if you want to be able to keep everything happily fed with a hot meal. When you have a large range, you have the space to get everything taken care of at the same time so the main court and the sides are all hot and ready to go. 

The Heat You Need. The most basic need when it comes to cooking is having heat. You can’t cook without it. So, having a reliable, never-ending heat source is very beneficial. With a large electric range, you will find yourself with more heat than gas ranges. So, that should answer your question about whether you should choose electric or gas, right? 

Simmering and Low Heat. Sometimes you cook or bake delicate foods. You need them to cook but you don’t want to scrape them off the bottom of the pan because they burnt. An electric range will provide you with a consistent level of low heat to help you cook things just right.  

Even Heating. Imagine putting a half-baked meatloaf in front of your kids and telling them to have at it. Someone may just end up sick! You need to thoroughly and evenly cook your food before consuming it. If the part you checked was cooked, you assume the rest is, too, right? Not always. But with a large electric range, you will find comfort in the fact that your food – whether a meatloaf or a tray of brownies – will be baked to perfection. 

Easy to Clean. If you have a large electric range, it is super easy to keep clean. And that is especially true with smooth glass top ranges. No need to go in and out of grooves or even take anything apart to reach the dripped, dropped, or spilled food. Just wipe it off! When you have a burner and pieces of what you are cooking fall into it, you have to wait until you turn that burner off and it cools before you can clean it. By that time, you are really having to scrape the burnt mess up. Who has time for that? Not you – that’s who!

We could keep going on and on with the benefits, but we know how excited you are about learning which large electric range can give you all these things – and fulfill the rest of your dreams. So, let’s get to it. 

Your Large Electric Range

Thor Kitchen has a 36-inch professional range – model number HRE3601 – that is built just for you. It is a pro-style range which means it is designed with durability and reliability that you and your family can always count on. And, designed with a stainless steel finish, it looks fantastic, too, regardless of your kitchen decor. In fact, this long-lasting range can make its way through years of decor that you change without ever being out of place. 

You will find that this range comes with many features, including: 

A Smooth Glass Top that, as we discussed, makes cleanup much easier. Though, it also keeps your range looking sleek and smooth, too. In other words, functionally and aesthetically, it is perfect. 

Five Heating Elements allow you a lot of flexibility when cooking. You have a 100W warming size (so your sides are always warm) and a powerful 3,000W quick boil element and everything in between. 

True Convection Fan is an addition that allows for even heat and even baking – so that the results are also delish! No half-cooked meatloaf like we talked about above. 

LED Control Panel Lights offer an added bonus of both aesthetics and functionality. Not to mention that they are also energy-efficient which is also a bonus. 

A Large Oven Capacity with 6.0 cubic feet of cooking space means you can cook multiple things at once – or one heck of a rack of ribs.  

Heavy-Duty Control Knobs give you confidence that you can always have control of your range. Knobs are used a lot and they can break very easily. To prevent that from happening with this pro-style electric range, they are designed to last. 

Blue Porcelain Interior adds a pop of color and style to your range. So not only will you have something stylish and beautiful, but it is really easy to clean, too!

Multiple Cooking Modes allow you to make use of the range’s full benefits, from baking convection bake, broil and convection broil, and more. Your family is going to think you truly are a magnificent chef. 

So, are you still asking yourself what the benefits are of a large electric range? There are so many out there. All you need to do is use one, such as the pro-style stainless steel range from THOR Kitchen. And, all your questions will be answered.

The Benefits of a Professional Electric Range

When it comes to buying a new appliance, you never want to just rush out to the nearest home store, for example, and grab the first thing you see. 

You should view buying an appliance as an investment. It is meant to last for a long time so you need to make sure you are getting exactly what you want. And consider the fact that it should add value to your home and your life, for that matter. 

So, when it comes to buying a range, you may find yourself putting some thought into it — should it be an electric range? A gas range? One that has four burners? Six burners? As you ponder your answers to these all-important questions, we urge you to focus on the benefits of a professional electric range. 

Long-Lasting Durability

When it comes to your new range, you need durability. Nobody wants to spend money on a range and worry that it will fall apart if you bump it too hard. And you surely don’t want to have your range break just before the arrival of all your best buds for the big game. Those game-day snacks … aren’t going to happen. And, for the record, last-minute takeout for a crowd is not cheap. 

Investing in a professional electric range brings you a sense of long-lasting durability – and with it comes dependability. It is strong enough to handle anything you throw at it – even if that means bringing the heat all day long. When you invest in quality, you won’t ever have to wonder if your range will be able to handle your cooking and baking needs.

Electric Heat is Efficient

Today, we are becoming more and more aware of the impact we have on the world around us. This means when we can take a step in the right direction and invest in an efficient appliance, we do so, right? 

There are many debates about whether gas or electric ranges are best. But, when it comes to an efficient appliance, there is no doubt that an electric range is the most efficient option on the market. It offers the most consistent heat, thus reducing its need to continuously push to reheat itself. 

Even more, this consistent temperature can not only greatly and positively impact the food you are cooking or baking, but it will also keep your kitchen cooler. And when your temperature doesn’t rise too high while you are cooking, then your home’s air conditioner is not going to have to overwork — it leads to a positive flow of pure efficiency all because you chose a professional electric range. Go you!

Easy-To-Clean Smooth Glass Top

Whether you are a messy cook or not, things drip and spill and boil over. You either need to clean it up when you are done or leave it for the next person. And, let’s be real – the latter scenario is never going to work in your favor. Therefore, you are going to want to clean up your messes. The best way to do this? Invest in a range that is easy to clean – such as a professional electric range. 

With a smooth glass top, you have a range that fits flush with your countertop. This gives your kitchen a very clean look. Speaking of cleanliness, the glass top is easy to wipe down with soapy water, keeping it looking fresh and new — and always a stand-out part of your kitchen. 

Versatile Stainless Steel

Stainless steel appliances are a great investment for your kitchen. You can’t lie – they look great and they will match any decor that you have. This means when you – or your other half – get tired of the look of your kitchen, you can give your kitchen a makeover and not have to worry about whether or not your appliances will match or blend in. 

Stainless steel appliances will always look wonderful regardless of their surroundings. They are that versatile. It is durable, shiny, easy to clean, and beautiful. 

On a side note, if you are looking for something that will add value to your home for the future, then stainless steel appliances are the way to go. They are not only stunning, but they bring a level of quality. Just something to consider on your quest for the perfect range.

The Benefits of a Double Oven Gas Range with Griddle

If you’re interested in replacing your old gas range, you may be interested in discovering the benefits of a double oven gas range with griddle. The double oven will allow you to cook more food for more people, allowing you to entertain larger groups of people effortlessly.

Add a griddle and you’ll be able to take your cooking to the next level.

In this article, we’re exploring some of the key benefits a double oven gas range with griddle has to offer.

Double Oven Gas Range with Griddle

There are certain things you can upgrade in your home that make sense — especially when it comes to the functionality of daily life. 

Having more than one bathroom? A must-have. 

Throwing a pool in the backyard for exercise and entertainment for the kiddos? Another must-have. 

Being able to use your kitchen with ease thanks to a double oven gas range with a griddle?  A most definite must-have. In fact, it’s an upgrade that takes the cake (and bakes it, too – pun intended!)

If you are on the fence about upgrading your oven or you just aren’t sure the benefits of doing so are there, let’s just make it known — the benefits are there. If you want to turn your kitchen into something out of Master Chef and feel like the boss, then a double oven gas range is a must-have. 

Discover the many benefits of a double oven gas range with griddle.

The Magic of Six Burners

Have you ever tried to cook Thanksgiving dinner or any big meal, really, and ended up with only half of it warm by the time it hit the table? It is so hard to try to cook multiple items on a stovetop when you only have four burners. 

Having six burners means you have space for everything. You can cook your main dish, your sides, and even boil water in the kettle for tea all at the same time. 

The additional burners may not seem like a lot,  but the first time you encounter just how essential they are for cooking in your kitchen, you will understand the benefit. 

Double Ovens? Yes, Please

Just like additional burners can seem like a magical addition, so can double ovens. How many times have you tried to bake a lasagna and a pie at the same time? Not only will you have to pick a temperature that will work for both, but your pie may come out with a slight taste of garlic! 

Double ovens mean extra space for cooking when you have a lot on your plate. One can even be used as a warmer if needed just to make sure every inch of dinner is hot and perfect when it is time to eat. 

Take Advantage of the Griddle’s Benefits

Those who have never had a griddle in their lives don’t really understand just how beneficial it can be. Those who have, well – they probably wouldn’t be here because they already have an oven with a griddle since they are that wonderful. 

Griddles can cook a lot of food at one time. Due to their size, you have a solid space where you can cook larger portions rather easily. And, the more you get used to it, you will find that cooking different items on the same griddle is possible, too. That means less cleanup. 

You can use a griddle to make breakfast pancakes, fried rice, steak, salmon, veggies, eggs, and more.

Increase the Value of Your Property

It is wise to base your home investments on things that will either add or take away from the value of your property. When it comes to adding a double oven gas range with a griddle – you are definitely going to increase your home’s value. 

Most kitchens have the standard size range with one oven and four burners. But having this larger, pro-style addition, you are offering so much more. 

Long-Lasting Durability and Quality

When you invest in a range, you are doing just that – investing.  You expect that your purchase will result in an appliance that will last you for years to come. Of course, just because it will last for years doesn’t mean you will want it to look old. 

This investment calls for a range that offers long-lasting durability which means it needs to be high-quality. You need one that is built of stainless steel that is both durable and easy to maintain. It maintains its shine over time and will not rust or corrode. Cleaning stainless steel appliances are also easy to clean, too – even without chemicals

The pro-style design that you will find with double oven gas ranges by THOR Kitchen also comes with an expectation that they can take the heat in the kitchen without ever looking the part. 

A Beautiful Focal Point

Have you ever walked into someone’s kitchen and found that your eyes were drawn to a particular appliance or piece of decor? Whatever it is, it just stands out and sets the tone for the entire space. It looks good — and it shines. 

This is often the case when it comes to a large double oven range in stainless steel. Adding this appliance to your kitchen will make it a focal point visitors won’t want to miss. It can be your prized investment and it will show off for you. 

The Best 48-Inch Professional Double Oven Gas Range

So now that you know a few of the benefits that come with investing in a double oven gas range, you may find yourself considering taking the leap. If so, you need the best of the best to reap the most — and that is THOR Kitchen’s Model Number HRG4808 range in stainless steel.

Upgrading to a Professional Dual Fuel Range

 

Thor Kitchen 48" Dual Fuel Range

Every now and then something comes along that sparks our interest and cheers us up a bit. For some this could be receiving a bouquet of flowers, for others, it could be a trip to Paris. Yet, for those who genuinely enjoy all that the kitchen stands for, upgrading to a dual fuel range can be the icing on the cake.

Sure, it may seem silly to get so excited over an appliance – but don’t be fooled – this is not just any appliance. This is a professional style dual fuel range. And, if you are not too sure what that is just yet – you should keep reading. It is time you learn why you should be beaming with joy about upgrading your range. Dual fuel is a game-changer.

What a Dual Fuel Range Does

Just as its name suggests, this type of range works using two types of fuel – gas (either natural or propane) and electricity. But, you should note that this doesn’t mean you have a fuel switch on your range that allows you to choose which type of fuel you want each time you go to cook. They are not designed in that manner.

Typically, as is with Thor Kitchen’s design, dual fuel ranges have a gas stovetop and an electric oven. Because professional chefs everywhere will tell you that this is the best of both worlds, it is the most common type of dual fuel range on the market.

The Electric Oven

The electric heating of ovens tends to work much better than the fluctuating heat of gas when it comes to baking or roasting. This electric heat tends to be drier and distributed more evenly throughout the oven. Everything you bake, every time should come out baked evenly on every side.

Gas ovens do not give such award-winning outcomes. Since hot air rises, the higher racks will cook much faster than lower racks. Plus, because the heat is not evenly distributed, you will have to rotate your food as you bake it. This can be a bit frustrating if you are working on cooking other parts of your meal.

The Gas Stove

When it comes to the stove, gas is usually always the preference. And, it’s no wonder – it heats up instantly and gives you a very precise temperature. When you are done cooking and turn off the burner, it goes off. Just like that. You can even leave your pan on that burner and it will not continue cooking your food.

Electric stoves don’t do well. They are designed with heating coils which means they take time to heat up – and they take time to cool down. You cannot turn off an electric burner and leave your pan on the burner expecting it to not continue to cook.

Features You Will Want

Dual fuel ranges are designed with strong cooks in mind. They know what professional chefs want – and they want you to be able to have that in your kitchen. So, when it comes to upgrading your range to a professional dual fuel range, you will love these popular features:

  • An oven convection fan to ensure even baking.
  • Stovetop griddle with thermostat controls.
  • Extra-low simmer function to keep food warm.
  • Multiple burners, up to at least six burners, designed with durable continuous cast-iron grates.
  • Stainless steel finish for a stellar look that is easy to clean and fits any kitchen design.
  • LED lighting for energy efficiency.
  • Porcelain stovetop and interior oven for easy cleanup.

And the best part is that these are just a few of the features available. Remember, this professional style range was designed with those who love to cook in mind.

Why You Should Upgrade

If you want to make good food for your loved ones, family, and friends, then you require certain tools in your kitchen. Combining your gas range with an electric oven gives you a dual fuel option that gives you the best of both worlds – and simplifies your life.

No longer will you be stuck rotating your baked goods to make sure everything is baking evenly. And, no longer will you overcook your side dishes on the stove. Everything you do can be done with ease – when you upgrade to a dual fuel range.

And, you don’t have to be a professional to reap the benefits. Even novice cooks will look like pros with the use of a pro-style dual fuel range. It is amazing how much easier cooking a great meal is when you have the right fuel to get the job done, right?

The Benefits of a Prostyle Range in Your Kitchen

protstyle range

If you’re interested in upgrading your kitchen next year, you may be interested in considering switching to a prostyle range.

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at the many benefits a prostyle range offers.

Prostyle Range Benefits

Do you love being in your kitchen?

Are you someone who enjoys cooking a delicious feast for your family and may even be the best baker in any baking competition?  They say that cooking and baking are therapeutic. And, if you can vouch for this, then you ought to be using nothing short of the best when it comes to the range – or all appliances – in your kitchen.

Of course, not everyone can afford commercial appliances for their kitchen. And, even if money is no issue, who wants the boring appearance of professional appliances in a beautifully-designed kitchen? Talk about drab!

So, what if there was a way you can have the best of both worlds – the professional quality you find in a commercial range combined with the elegance that comes with a personal range? There is. It is called a pro-style range. And, it is time you consider an upgrade.

Here are several benefits you will enjoy with a prostyle range.

Durability

Pro-style appliances are built to live up to heavy use – and this is especially true when it comes to a pro-style range. They were created for those who want to turn their home kitchen into a professional kitchen without harming the design style. This means that they are durable. From the materials they are built with to the way in which they are put together, these pro-style ranges will handle all that you put them through without worrying about breaking a knob or losing their beautiful appearance.

Regular residential ranges are designed for light cooking. Work them too much, and they will not only wear down in their performance but also in their appearance. If you love to bake and cook, you need someone dependable – and durable.

Additional Burners

Have you ever tried to cook a large meal and realize that four burners just is not enough? Well, sure, you can cook in shifts, but then half the meal is cold!

With pro-style ranges, you get the option for additional burners. In fact, five or six burners are very common. Some of these ranges even add special features, such as a griddle in the middle which can provide you with quite a bit of extra cooking space.

Never worry about having a half-cooked meal again with a pro-style range in your kitchen.

Double Ovens

Just like that burner situation, oven space can be hard to come by. If you need to bake multiple things and at different temperatures, you are going to run into a problem. You can try it, but there is a good chance something may end up too done or not done enough. Besides, who wants the sweet potato pie to taste like turkey?

One option that comes in so handy with pro-style ranges is the double oven. Here you will find yourself able to cook multiple items at once, and at two separate temperatures. Imagine it – lowering your frustrations and increasing your cooking ability – all in a durable, long-lasting, double oven pro-style range.

Can life get any better than that? Well, believe it or not, there is something better than a double oven range. What is it? Its called a dual fuel range.

Dual Fuel

The dual fuel range is a special range that offers two types of heating – gas and electric. For those serious chefs and bakers, such as yourself, cooking with the right heat is essential for a perfect finished product.

With a dual fuel range, you get an electric oven and a gas stove. Here’s why:

A gas stove heats up burners instantly. There is no need to wait for the burner to heat up before the pan and, ultimately, the food can heat. Instead, there is fire heating it instantly. In addition, the control over the temperature is much more precise with gas. When you need to turn the heat lower, you turn the flame down. When you are done, you turn the flame off. You don’t have to worry about a hot burner or food that will continue to cook.

When it comes to the oven, electric heat provides even, thorough baking. There is no need to rotate your dish around. Instead, the even layer of heat will penetrate your dish perfectly, leaving you with a perfect outcome every time.

These pro-style, dual fuel ranges are a great addition to a kitchen – and can make your life in the kitchen much easier.

Stainless Steel

The stainless steel finish is another great addition to pro-style ranges. Have you ever noticed that commercial kitchens are filled with stainless steel? Do you know why? Despite the fact that stainless steel finish is timeless and it looks spectacular no matter what your design style is, there is a real serious reason why this is the finish of choice for commercial kitchens: it is non-porous.

So, what does that mean for your kitchen? Well, kitchens are full of germs and bacteria. The more you cook in them, the more these germs get spread around your kitchen. This is why it is so important to properly clean your kitchen so kill the spread of the nastiness.

Unfortunately, some materials have pores or grooves. No matter how hard you try to clean then, you cannot always reach the germs. But, when you have a surface – such as stainless steel – it doesn’t allow for that to happen. When you clean this surface, you are removing everything you don’t want, leaving you with a healthier kitchen.

Quality

Last, but certainly not least, is the quality that you get when you invest in a pro-style range. You don’t have to worry about cooking too much or wearing down the range. You don’t have to be overly gentle so you don’t break something. And, you don’ have to worry about your range looking used up over time.

Quality materials give you a quality product that will outperform other options. And, that is what you get with a pro-style range.

Conclusion

Now that you’ve learned about some of the many benefits a prostyle range offers, you can consider which professional range is right for your kitchen. Whether you’re interested in upgrading to a dual-fuel range or a range with a griddle, the choice is up to you.

Time for your upgrade? You should have all the information you need to consider upgrading your range to a pro-style range today!

Finding the Best Kitchen Range for Your Needs

If you’re looking for a new kitchen range, you may not know exactly which is right for you. The best way to find the right range is to consider how you like to cook, the space available in your kitchen, and what types of dishes you prefer.

In this article, we’re sharing a few tips all about finding the best kitchen range for your needs.

The Best Kitchen Range for Your Needs

Stop for a moment and think about the most important appliance in your kitchen. What would it be? The refrigerator? Sure. After all, it does keep your food cold and fresh. Your microwave? Eh, you may be able to take it or leave it. How about your dishwasher? Yes – it is important but you technically could wash your dishes by hand if you had to.

So, how about that range? Oh, the range – this is it! This is the most important appliance in your kitchen, isn’t it? You can create magnificent meals on the stove and bake delicious desserts for your friends and family in the oven. You can heat up water for tea to sip with a dear friend. You can even create feasts for the holidays that will live on in the memories of loved ones for years to come.

It is safe to say that the range is the one and only – the most important piece of equipment that needs to be in the kitchen. So, if you are ready to purchase a new range, how do you know which one to get? How do you know what to look for? What details do you need to know before shopping?

Let’s get to answering all these questions and more.

Here’s how to find the best kitchen range for your needs.

What Are Your Cooking Habits?

First of all, you absolutely must take a look at your cooking habits. There are some individuals out there that live alone and maybe use the range one or two days each week. Then, on the other side of the spectrum, there are those large families who always have a house full of scents from something cooking or baking.

Knowing your cooking habits can help you determine which range is the best for you. If you use the range frequently, then you are going to want to make sure that the range of your purchase can handle your workload. You want your range to be ready every time you need it. Investing in a pro-style range can give you the durability you are looking for.

Then, of course, there is the size of the range – can you regularly cook large meals for a family of 7 on a stove with three burners? No, right? You need more than that. How about a range with six burners and a griddle? That is ample space for you to cook with ease. Maybe you could even use two ovens!

Take some time to consider your cooking habits before you make your purchase.

What Type of Fuel Do You Prefer?

Gas or electric.

The debate over which type of fuel is best for a range goes back to their creation. There are some people who just prefer gas ranges. And, there are just as many who prefer electric. While they each have their pros and cons, the debate will likely never cease.

Then, there are those professional chefs – and those who are avid cooks and bakers at home – that know there is a range out there that includes the best of both worlds: the dual fuel range.

This range brings both gas and electric together to give you the benefit of each in the area they work best. For instance, gas stoves tend to heat up faster and provide more precise cooking. And, electric ovens provide even, consistent heat for thorough baking.

So, which fuel falls within your preference?

What Size Range Will Fit Your Kitchen?

The size of the range is going to be determined by the space allotted in your kitchen. If you are designing a brand new kitchen, then congratulations – you can design the space around the size of your range if you’d like. Otherwise, it is important to measure your current range or the space available to see which is best for your kitchen.

What Features Should You Look For?

Shopping for a new range can get a bit tricky, especially when you see all the features that are available. You may find it hard to determine what you really need and what you don’t. And, perhaps there are features out there that you don’t know you should be looking for.

As you head on your journey, look for these key features in your new range:

  • Stainless steel (or black stainless steel) finish.
  • Porcelain drip pans in the oven and on top of the stove for easy cleanup.
  • A commercial convection fan for even baking.
  • Continuous cast-iron cooking grates for incredible durability.
  • Adjustable oven racks.
  • Infrared broiler.

And more!

Benefits of a Pro-Style Range

Just any range may work for someone, but for you – the individual who is seeking quality and durability in their range – you need a pro-style range.

These ranges are designed for the home while manufactured with the same grade of strength as those used in heavily-trafficked commercial kitchens.

A pro-style range will offer the following:

  • Constructed with durable and non-porous metal, such as stainless steel.
  • Easy to clean surfaces, such as porcelain drip pans in the oven and the stovetop.
  • Designed with heavy use in mind – which means you won’t have to worry about knobs breaking or the like.

Pro-style ranges are strong, durable, and can handle very heavy use. However, they also look incredibly beautiful in your personal home kitchen. In other words – it brings the best of both ranges together.

Conclusion

Purchasing your new range should be fun and exciting. Sticking with a timeless stainless steel pro-style range means that you are purchasing an appliance that will last for years to come – and will blend with nearly any design style you may choose.

Know your size and measurements.

Understand the available features.

Determine your cooking habits.

And, decide on the fuel that is going to make you find joy in cooking and baking.

It is time to start making memories in your kitchen again, wouldn’t you agree?
