Cooking with an oven range.
Also known as a kitchen stove, a range is an appliance that combines an oven with a cooktop. It keeps all the heating and cooking activities in close proximity, especially when you combine a stove range with an over-the-range microwave.
Oven ranges are the perfect appliance for those who like to cook multi-dish meals or those who need to conserve space in the kitchen. You can take the meat you’re browning on the burner and move it right into the oven for roasting or quickly check on a baking dish by turning on the oven light while you’re stirring sauce in the pot on the stove.
Most building codes require a ventilation system for both your oven and kitchen range, but when you choose an oven range, you only need one ventilation system to cover both. A range hood or over-the-range microwave with a built-in vent can collect and disperse airborne grease, baking odors, excess moisture and smoke externally to improve the air quality in your home. Plus, you get to keep all your appliance hookups in one location instead of separating them for an isolated cooktop and a wall oven.
Choosing the best range for you.
Before buying a new range, be sure to measure the height, width and depth of the space available. You’d be surprised how many people forget this step and regret it later. You also want to ensure there’s enough clearance for the power cord or the gas-line connector in back.
When it comes to choosing between gas and electric, first see whether your home is set up to accommodate a certain one. Since there are advantages to both gas and electric stoves, it’s nice to have the choice. You could also choose a dual-fuel appliance that heats the stovetop using gas and the oven using electricity. And if you have a lot of space, you might benefit from a double-oven range with extra cooking space for more flexibility when making meals.
Finally, decide on any additional features you want for range cooking, such as a convection oven setting. And you’ll want the aesthetics of your stove range to match your kitchen. For instance, do you want a classic stainless steel range or something more unique?
